Road Warrior Weekend

December 17th, 2009 | by Sqotty |

From the realm of “man, that sounds like fun”, I received a message on the MacDude list about an event called “Road Warrior Weekend”. Costumes, cars and gyrocopters, all in the post-apocalyptic style made popular by the Mad Max movies.

The brainchild of Scarlot Harlot, according to the LA Weekly, she came up with the idea during a night of red wine and Mad Max movies, a combination that can’t go wrong.

“I started thinking you don’t want a bunch of people in a hotel or a convention center, it doesn’t go with the theme of Mad Max,” she explains. “I started thinking, it would be really cool if we could do in the desert with a backdrop similar to the movies.”

Yes, it would be, and looked like it was, a very cool idea to hold this event in the desert rather than a hotel. Almost makes me wish I still lived in California. Almost.

And it looks like they are already planning their next Mad Max Weekend as well. Check it out at Road Warrior Weekend.
