Mad Max Reenactment

Apparently there’s a growing subculture of people who reenact scenes — including replica clothing and vehicles — from the 1979 Mel Gibson movie Mad Max. Think of it as a Highland games event, except with simulated violence instead of caber tossing competitions. Fans are getting together in the California desert next month for a big meet-up called “Wasteland Weekend”. From the official description:

Join the hundreds of fans coming from all over the the United States (and beyond) to gather in the Southern California desert. Set up camp at our wasteland compound, surrounded by specially-built sets. Costumes are required and post-apocalyptic campsites and vehicles are encouraged. Live for three days in a world pulled straight out of the Mad Max movies, beyond the grip of so-called civilization.

Top DJs from all over will provide the soundtrack, fire dancers and bonfires will light up the night, and modified vehicles will shake the earth with their engines.
