They’re part of a wider European “Postapo” scene, whose main event is the annual Junktown festival, where everyone in attendance parties like the world has already ended.

They’re beautiful photos, but just check out the level of detail in these outfits. Every single thing, from the wear on their rags to the damage on their gear, has been accounted for.

DISCUSSION

Oh, man. This makes me wish that there was some sort of large-scale live-roleplaying thing where the organizers rent and decorate a huge plot of land and roleplayers in costume just go in there and improv scenarios - and there are no inklings that you are in anything but the world that you’ve all agreed to acting in. There has to be a market for this, right?
