Another Blast From the Past

Along with the photos of me from Aussiecon Three, Lisa produced two photos from what I think was the last FanimeCon held at Foothill College, long before it became the monstrous huge pop culture event it is today. Lisa wore two of her costumes at that convention.

Lisa Hayes as Lisa Hayes

Lisa has a great fondness for Commander Lisa Hayes from Robotech: The Macross Saga. (Aside: anyone who wants to nitpick Robotech can save their typing and my heartburn.) Here she is kitted out as her namesake character.

She had another costume that is great to look at but really difficult to wear for long periods.

Lisa Hayes as Sailor Jupiter

Lisa's Sailor Jupiter costume looks great. At a Norwescon, she was wearing it when a group of fans threw themselves at her feet and said, "We adore Sailor Jupiter! We've come to worship you."

She turned to me and said, "I could get used to this."

Getting boots that match Jupiter is not easy. She ended up with these close matching boots, but they're really hard on her feet, and thus she only has a very limited time she can be out and about in the costume.

There is a pocket in the Robotech outfit, but the Sailor Scouts don't seem to have any way to store anything. They seem to get whatever they need out of "hammerspace." Consequently, she needed the Sailor Jupiter Support Squad (me) carrying stuff and providing logistical support.
