Distant Worlds Record Release Party: FFXIII Cosplay and More Beer Apparel (Gallery)

Between their stops in San Francisco last week and the upcoming show at Comic Con this coming Thursday, Nobuo Uematsu and the Distant Worlds team took a break from the show in Los Angeles at the Royal/T cafe/art gallery/book shop (yes, it’s a strange place) for a special Distant Worlds II record release party. While Distant Worlds hasn’t been to Los Angeles yet (there were hints that a show might be coming next year), over 100 fans turned out to this special event to get signed CDs, posters, and photos with Uematsu and Arnie Roth.

It was a very successful event I’d say, and we have a gallery from the evening’s festivities, including shots of the line that started a whole hour and half before the doors opened, some FFXIII cosplayers (I guess it doesn’t matter that Uematsu didn’t score FFXIII), and of course Uematsu’s latest beer-themed apparel. I even asked Uematsu about The Last Story and his “Best of” album that he mentioned in the past.

All of this and more after the jump.

I’ll start with the text-based stuff before getting to the photo gallery. When I asked Uematsu about The Last Story, I got: “I’m unable to comment at this time.” I think that’s a pretty strong indication that he may be involved, but we’ll cut him a break this time and simply say “maybe” at this point. Regarding his “Best of” album, there seems to be a number of issues with putting this together and getting it released, but he didn’t elaborate. I’m still looking forward to it though.

Also of note was the fact that Dog Ear Records brought some merchandise along to the event, selling copies of The Black Mages III: Darkness and Starlight CDs and DVDs. They were selling for full Yen-to-Dollar conversions though, at $50 for the DVD and $30 for the CD.

Now, on to that photo gallery! Enjoy, and let us know which shots are your favorites. What do you think of the FFXIII cosplay, and how about that complimentary cupcake display?
