Get Married With Giant Gundam!

Illustration for article titled Get Married With Giant Gundam!

The most romantic day of your life. A next chapter. A new family. What better way to mark that occasion than with a giant mecha?

Japanese wedding planner T&G are, well, planning a wedding ceremony for one lucky couple this Tuesday. The soon-to-be-wed couple were selected from 548 entries last month.

A 18-meter-tall (59-foot-tall) RX-78 has been erected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the mecha anime/manga/toy/video game franchise.


It is part of the "Mobile Suit Gundam 30th Anniversary Project," and the temporary structure in Odaiba's Shiokaze Park was built from fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame and coated in a layer of awesomeness.

Fifty points on the Gundam statue emit light, and mist shoot out of 14 different points on the statue. The 1/1 scale Gundam boasts a movable head and a continuous stream of oh-man-this-is-so-damn-cool.

You may now kiss the bride. No, really.

Now see, I would only get married if me and my hubby were dressed appropriately for that event.

And by appropriately, I mean in FULL cosplay, like he was Amuro and I was Lala...Char could show up to screw things and my hubby would leap into the Gundam...

Wait...on second thought, just go with the traditional, things don't really end well with those three.
