Well, there's a con coming up in Rochester NY on March 23-25th. My friend and I are going as Shin Kudo and Roy Focker (respectively) from Macross Zero. If any fans of macross are in the area, come by and hang out with us!

We intend to ;) And yes, we're doing the full on flight suit get up.

Is there any focus on toys here? Any vendors ?

That's a good question. I'm not sure!

Helmets WERE an issue for us, but we decided to go with an open face helmet to make them appear as though the pilots just don't have their masks on, similar to the original SDF Macross or this image:

That sounds like a good solution. I have a 1:1 Roy Focker TV Helmet and thought of using that as a base to make as you said "An open faced M-0 helmet" as the forward Visor and mask section, thats where it gets a bit dodgy!
