  • Japanese weddings typically consist of the "shiki" (ceremony) and "hiroen" (reception), followed by the nijikai, a more casual gathering for close friends.

  • Kuroboshi, known as @zgokzogok on X, shared an image of his unconventional attire online. "I was asked to wear a suit to the wedding reception, so I came in a mobile suit," he wrote in Japanese.

  • Decked out as the iconic RX-78-2 Mobile Suit Gundam, Kuroboshi's cosplay garnered both admiration and surprise from commenters.

  • The groom, Ryuryu, expressed his delight at Kuroboshi's attire in a separate post on X. “I said suit though lol... I was so happy to have Gundam come,” he wrote. "Thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule.”

  • Other attendees embraced the cosplay spirit, with characters such as Eva Unit-01 from "Neon Genesis Evangelion" and a Yu-Gi-Oh duelist making an appearance at the event.

  • It is worth noting that Ryuryu and his wife Ruby are no strangers to cosplay themselves, having represented Japan at the prestigious 2019 World Cosplay Summit.
