Mysterious Cities of Gold

When we (Laura and Alena) were young, we watched a French/Japanese television program that aired in America in the very early 1980s. It went off the air by around 1984, and for years afterward, there was no trace of it — no videos, no records, nobody who remembered seeing it. But thanks to the wonder of technology, this lost classic was rediscovered when it was released on DVD nearly 30 years after its original run.

Some time later, we were arranging a trip through Central America, including a visit to two Mayan cities. Presented with the opportunity to do a photoshoot at actual Mayan ruins, we couldn’t resist doing a set of MCoG costumes for a location shoot! So we threw together very quick costumes for Zia and Esteban, packed along our favorite cosplay photographer Elemental, and had a blast.

(And yes, Zia is actually Incan, not Mayan… but hey, you work with what you have!)

    I REMEMBER THAT SHOW!!!
    Sorry, I don’t mean to yell, but it’s very exciting to know I’m not the only person in the universe who saw it.
