Well, I just found this one. I laughed at it at first but now I'm just thinking about it. In the meantime this event screamed "MYLOT DISCUSSION PLZ!" the minute I laid eyes upon it. Sad part is, I knew about the life-size Gundam since it was some celebratory stunt celebrating 30 years of the franchise. http://www.japantoday.com/category/picture-of-the-day/view/gundam-wedding Now to make the discussion a bit more fruitful... Would you have done something like this (or well entered to since it was a contest)? Would you have had your wedding somewhere or with the theme of a fantasy, franchise or fiction you like? If so, feel-free to describe it in your response. Would you agree to or refuse a wedding like this if your spouse/boyfriend proposed it (or would your spouse/boyfriend refuse you if you proposed it? :D) Have fun with this one.

LOL Very interesting. I must say I do not watch cartoons and that probably isn't what adults that watch cartoons call them, so sorry that I don't know the proper term. I think that I would have told my husband, "there's no way in hell". And lets pretend for a minute that I would have picked something like this for our wedding, he would have said, "I don't care, whatever makes you happy".

Well in Japan (and later adopted by the western world) the word is "Otaku" and its base meaning is "very obsessed". I think that's the word you were trying to get, but then again Zephyr you might have wanted something more common like "fanboy/fangirl". :3 About the other part of the comment, its interesting you response if proposed to with said theme wedding is "no way", but your husband would have said "I don't care whatever makes you happy". I'll at least say, your hubby really wants you happy, but I can easily understand situations where one party wants something and another does not - isn't that how I met you on mylot? ;) And now for lulz. Remember, there is always the possibility of renewed vows or second ceremonies. You might not be in the clear Zeph. XD *evil laughter*

That is how we met, I'm very shocked. Maybe you remember because my husband was an idiot? LOL Since then much has changed and have recently talked about renewing our wedding vows since when we got married neither one of us really wanted what we said to each other that day. But, it will not be like this wedding :)

All i can say is "different strokes for different folks," and "it takes all kinds to make a world," and by that I mean ALLL KINDS, from the sublime to the ridiculous. That's not something I would do, but as i stated above, I'm not the only person out there. I rate this right up there with those crazy Star Trek weddings I've heard of. LOL

Indeed. Still it got my attention but you are right. From here it just looks like a same-difference type of "special" wedding. As long as the couple enjoyed it, of course. :)

Interesting, getting a wedding planned for free sounds good to me as long as there is no religious organization involved... Of course naturally there is no need to participate in a structure built upon a false foundation, as opposed to the fictitious nature of the imagination that created such a robot or other ideas from the minds of people...

Interesting indeed. In the end there are two constructs here that were spawned from human minds (though marriage was relegated to the social aspect of things) and there's a choice regarding the whole thing.
