So this thread is being posted insanely early. Oh well.

At this point, I think it's a given pre-reg is going to be necessary to get in, so we have to plan ahead, right? :toothy:

So, any plans yet for costumes at the next AD?

I'm thinking I'll probably go on a Jrock cosplay binge soon, just because I already have some fabric for Myaku Shinya and Osaka Jo Die (both from Dir en Grey). Want to make Drain Away Kaoru too, just for the combat boots/geta combination...and the insane amount of tiny details. I really should have learned after how much the Kijin outfit cost/how much time was spent. XD I'm considering doing some Phantasmagoria costumes too...But overall, I just miss the Jrock cosplaying.

Might be forced to do some more Tsubasa cosplay thanks to this (http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y233/ryuuki_fenikkasu/HPIM0099.jpg) poster I got at Detour this year....

Hey, sounds like you got a handful! The earlier the better I say. I will be going as Tidus again finally since I didn't cosplay the last two years. I will also be going as Claude from Star Ocean 2. I am going to work harder for next year so it will turn out great :)

i think i will be Sayuri from Memoirs of a Geisha and Gunner Yuna, and maybe Sexy Jutsu from Naruto ( Don't worry i will have a skin colored body suit on and cotton glued on)

If I go, I'm really hoping to go as Trevor Belmont. I don't know that I have the face for it, though...
Or the talent to make the costume. >_>

Well, as of now, I'm working on Kuchiki Byakuya for Anime North, so I'll most likely bring that next year for Anime Detour. I'm thinking on doing Deidara (Naruto) next year, still not sure on that.

Right now it looks like:

Grandis: Emma from Victorian Romance Emma, Spoor from Crest of Stars, Julia from Castlevania Curse of Darkness, Rin from Fate/Stay Night and Saber from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia

Nemo: Abh from Crest of Stars, Archer from Fate/Stay Night

All subject to change, of course.

Never too early to dream.

Man, I envy the people who can actually plan out and execute multiple costumes for a year. While it's hell for me to just get work on one done and it's not even certian if I'll be able to go for next year.</whine>

Sorry for that...

I'm going with a One Piece group and I'm going to be Luffy. But I'll probably throw in "real world" Ichigo/Kon in Ichigo's body, and maybe one other costume if I think of something.

At the moment I'm unsure if I can go to AD08 as I am moving to LA fairly soon, but since I have lots of friends back here in MN who go to AD, I'm hoping my spring break schedule works out so I can come back in time for AD.

Anyhoo, my '08 cosplay lineup so far is all Dir en grey (Jrock) (at AD07 I counted 5 Jrock cosplayers, myself included--sort of a dearth this year):
-Finish up the details on Gauze-era Kaoru and make the accessories for the other variants
-remake Myaku Kaoru since I have so much fabric left from the first attempt and the old wig is so ruined that I really just need a new one (said wig can double as an Osaka Jo wig too, which is a plus)
-Make Kaoru's Akuro no Oka costume--b/c I've been wanting to make the massive hat for ages. Wearing it, I'll probably be an obstacle to the flow of con traffic, so I guess I'll have to stay of the halls. ^^;

As far as what I'll actually wear at AD, I don't know yet, but I'll certainly wear Osaka Jo again because I really like it but only got to wear it for a few hrs this year. That and my friend might be making Osaka Jo Toshiya (nothing like the prospect of a group to get ya motivated).

Look at me be lazy and not read the rest of the thread ;P If you go as Spoor.....well...I can't think of a proper if/then statement, but either way, win. Spoor was probably my favorite character from the series :P

Let's see, as for myself, I dunno what I want to do. I wanna do something on theme, so I might finally get off my arse and do Fuma from X, complete with the shinken, but I might have to learn some other propping disciplines for the handguard section. Either that or I might do something else entirely. Maybe something from Utena (Regretably, I doubt anyone could pull off a proper Akio cosplay - manwhoring aside :P )

Oh my god!!! You totally should!! *totally loves Tsubasa*

For sure, I'll bring my Hyuuga Hinata Time Jump, Hanajima Saki from Fruits Basket, Rin Tosaka from Fate Stay Night, and Himawari Kunogi from xxxHOLiC!!! xD LOL I'll bring two more most likely. :3

But I'll be dragging a Hyuuga Hanabi (hopefully she'll have a time jump clothes before AD'08 comes too close :P) and Hyuuga Neji Time Jump. :D LOL I'm hoping to drag along a Time Jump Tenten as well! xD LOL

I want to do other cosplay group for AD'08 with my siblings that I'll be dragging along with me to AD'08 so once we figure out what we all would like to cosplay as, I'll be the happiest girl alive! xD LOL

~BloodSeras from Hellsing
~Kitana from MK since I got lazy and didn't finish her for AD 07
~I may suck it up and do Aeris
~Anything else I or anyone else can think of.

Seriously, I'd appreciate any costume ideas as school has decided to attack the creative part of my brain...

Next AD I am cosplaying as Dragon Haku again, Mewtwo, Leader Pechu, and maybe the fox guy from bleach, but prolly not.

Serria
04-03-2007, 08:09 PM
It's still, uhhh, waaaay to early to tell, but I'm thinking about cosplaying something from Death Note. My friend and I have been talking about being Light and L, though who is which we don't know yet. XD I didn't bring Princess Zelda this year, so I suppose I might bring that for sure next year, but I'll fix it up. I have other various ideas... like a humanized Gatomon from Digimon, I think that would be fun. I've also toyed with the idea of cosplaying Cloud Strife, which would be fun because I'm usually cosplaying Aeris. Ohhh, and also Van from Escaflowne! That's one I would also really like to make.

Akahime

That would be cool, because I'm planning an Utena/Anthy cosplay with Jared :3 I intend to have them done for Anime Iowa, and also plan to bring them to AD as well.

In addition, I plan on bringing Haku from Naruto again, and would love to try to do something from the Soul Calibur series (most likely Ivy or Seong Mina).

Less entire costume, more I just wanna make soul edge with a creepy eye that I can move around. I've really no idea how I'd do this yet. Most of the construction wouldn't be too hard, but Making the handle be able to hold the weight and making the eye articulate would be the challenge.

Spoor in the halls is great, because you get to do that mad laugh and say outrageous things.

I'm pretty sure our stage entry will be as large a group of Fate/Stay Night servants as we can get together.

Wow, this thread really is getting started early!!


Here's my plan -->
- Kairi ( KH2 )
- Fran ( FFxii )



Not quite sure on my final costume yet, or Fran. It might get kinda ackward running around in a bikini and 5-inch heels all day. 0.0"

twin_fools
05-15-2007, 09:01 PM
I definitly changed my mind FAST lol. Now I'm going as KH2 Sora for AD 08 XD
Andddd maybe pre-time jump Naruto... depends on the state of that costume =P

Nice to know that there's a Kairi and Riku going too tho :rockon:

Fenix42
05-16-2007, 09:42 AM
Well, this looks like the final list for AD08:
Kuchiki Byakuya - Bleach
Abarai Renji (Shinigami Academy) - Bleach
Kankurou (Time Jump) - Naruto
Chrno - Chrno Crusade

The last three I'm cosplaying with a friend (she'd be Rukia, TJ Temari, and Rosette).

Ooh!
We should find a place to all meet up and take les pics.

As for other costumes, probably a Kon remake, and maybe the third Black Waltz from Final Fantasy IX if I feel daring. ;D

twin_fools
05-24-2007, 06:23 PM
Might be going as Roxas instead of Sora now =__= because of the possible surplus of Soras at AD (apparently theres a group of 15 people going as diffrent versions of Sora... and I just dont wanna be 1 Sora out of 16... to wired). So yeah, maybe Roxas

Either way it's Kingdom Hearts *shrugs* and we'd still match kAIRI x l0VE XD

Aminafo I think there is one person planning to do a ToS cosplay (Lloyd was it? I can't recall) and another TotA cosplayer doing Luke Fon Fabre, so you won;t be alone =P

Agh. Not to early to plan. I couldn't get into AD last year since I didn't preregister, which I thoroughly regretted. So '08 will be my first con...Not counting small gatherings at libraries and stuff.
I wanna go as Chrno [Chrno Crusade] really badly. I was inspired by a cosplayer I saw at the entrance when I was briefly in the building last year. Plus he looks like so much fun to cosplay as, plus plus I'm obsessed with him already. [I get to wear a purple wig and suspenders! *spazz attack*]
So yeah....I forced my friend to read the manga so she could be Rosette with me. ^-^

Akahime

05-31-2007, 10:29 AM
LOL But since none of them has black hair, we can't cosplay as them because our parents would kill us if we brought many different color wings just for cosplay... since we already waste plenty of greens on fabric. xP Ahem, but yeah. I can't wait to see that cosplay... you are going to bring it right? *being forgetful*

Devu
05-31-2007, 04:28 PM
I know what you mean...My mom had some problems with buying just one wig...
But yeah, I'm gonna be there. I hope it looks good, because I've only done one costume before and it was for Halloween...But it'll be fun.
I really like your Hinata costume. You're really cute as her.

My friend is going as Rosette and I think we might have demon Chrno next year as well. Trying to convince another to go as Aion...
I have yet to read the manga (which is next on my "to buy" list). I've watched the anime though.

I can't wait to see yours! :D

Devu
06-01-2007, 05:33 PM
That would be awesome if you had Aion in your group. He's one of mmy favorite characters...And he looks fun to cosplay. I haven't seen many cosplay as him, either. Can't wait to see that!

But man, this makes me want to do extra good on my costume...I hope it turns out well...

Fenix42
06-02-2007, 01:01 PM
I hope he does too. But he's never seen the series, and he prefers to cosplay from anime he's seen (which I think makes sense), so...we'll see. :)

Rem from Death Note
Grimmjow from Bleach
Artbook Abel Nightroad or Cain Nightlord (trinity blood) (depending which we need in our group)

and more to add later :D

It's never to early to plan!

I missed AD07, so AD08 is going to be my first con. I'm planning on going as Inui Sadaharu from Prince of Tennis. I'm buying the Seigaku uniform from http://www.qqcosplay.com/ but I have the pieces for his non-regular outfit. I've got green sweat pants and a white t-shirt. Aren't I awesome? I just have to add the elastic to the bottom of the sweat pants and I'm good. Anyone else cosplaying Prince of Tennis?

These anime cons look so fun, but I never have enough money for them. That's why I'm planning early this year. I've had this planned since I missed pre-registration for AD07. Though, I've spent the $200 I had saved up for it. I'll have to start over on that, but I can do it! I believe in myself!

I hope I find some PoT cosplayers to hang out with there. I'm a small town girl, so put me in the city and even with a map, I'd still get lost. *sigh* I just have no sense of direction.

Fenix42
06-16-2007, 01:41 PM
Yeah, I have a bit of an issue of saving money for cons, because something always desides to come up that I need to pay for...so I dip into my con savings. I did manage to have $200 for Detour this year, though.
Even if you don't bring that much money with you, it's still fun.

I've never seen Prince of Tennis, but I wish you luck in finding some cosplayers at Detour next year. :)

Pre-registration is open for AD08, if you want to get that done with. And I think you can now reserve rooms at the hotel too.

Well for all of who that didn't get to have photos or simply just missed the "specific" fandom photoshoots.......I'm trying to set up a small studio in the Artist alley room with a simple backdrop, small studio packages as well as ON SITE PRINTING so that you can take your photos home right away....stay tuned.....

I'll probably be there as a Custom "Fox-Naruto" character, Hitsugaya-Hallow, and Vash the Stampede.....my fiance's probably going to be Sakura from Naruto again....we'll see what for the second day though......


only assuming i can get a place in the artist alley that is.......

This was actually my first time there and it was lots more fun then I had expected it to be. I met alot of very friendly and very helpful people who event went to a late night movie with me and saw TMNT at the Mall of America movie theater.

I wore 3 different outfits at this con:

Friday - Perfect Cell (DBZ)
Saturday Aft. - Jak (Jak and Daxter)
Saturday Night - Android 20/Dr. Gero (DBZ)

And I already got my 08 outfits planned and ready:

Darkwing Duck - Darkwing Duck
Ivan Ooze - Power Rangers the Movie
Janemba - DBZ movie 12 "Fusion reborn"

Sounds like a great idea!
Weird question though: Were you at Anime North this year? I remember seeing a Hitsuguya Hollow there...

I went to my first con lat year, and I've never had so much fun. I saw alot of great cosplayers, though I didnt have the guts to go up and talk to them *cough* Riku, Xemnas, Squall, Vincent, Sephiroth...*cough* But I still had a great time! For the 08 AD, I'm going to be Akabane from GetBackers! Look out for me!

*coughs* post your cosplay choices at the official Anime Detour forums at animedetour.com too *coughs*

But for the crowd that hangs out here at these forums, I'm doing Asuka from Evangelion. If there are any other Evangelion cosplayers that hang out here and not at the official AD forums, please please please contact me ^.^

I have all the things I need to finish my Miyaku Shinya, but chances are that's gonna be set aside for Drain Away Kaoru (both from Dir en Grey). I'm starting college next month though, so I'm not sure yet how much cosplay time I'll have, but I hope to be able to get one of the two done.

AD '08 will be my first convention. I won't be able to cosplay 'til '09 cuz I'm going to New Zealand and Australia this summer.
--when I do cosplay it will be Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin and Yomiko Readman from R.O.D.

Ah, another AD forum. Lucky me.

Hey-o... Wow, there are a lot of people that go to AD....heh....
AD'08 will be my first con, so I hope to make some new friends before I get there. ^^

I keep changing my mind about who I want to cosplay as. I know that one day, for sure, I will be L (Death Note), but I want a second costume for another day. L is too simple for my tastes. Hmm...

Well, hope to see y'all at AD'08. ^^ Toodles.

Heyla, will be my 3rd year to AD, you're in for a blast if you've never been to AD before. Little call out if anyone remembers me, but I was the Uryū Ishida (only one I think...) and will be finishing up my 2nd costume of his (When he pulls the glove off) for this year...But..I want to run as someone else too, anyone have any ideas:eeek: Currently have a Zell from FF8 type haircut, but it's growing out fast.

PS: Is it bad/rude to see if anyone wanted to buy my first costume from me ahead of time for AD'08:confused:

Ishida!!! XD

You are the only one I've seen at AD that's cosplayed him (I saw very few at Anime North too..). *sigh* just not enough love for Ishida...

ooo, that would be cool...^_^ Well, what other anime to you like?

Alright I think I know what I'm doing for all three days

One day, I'll be dressing as Yuffie (Advent Children) and my friend, Monica, will be dressing as Tsugumi Rosenmeier (Genesis of Aquarion)
Next, me and my friend, Angel, will be dressing as dark and light Chii (Chobits! :rockon: ) and Monica is going to be Kankuro (Naruto)

And finally, I'm going to try my hand at crossplay and maybe go as either Spike (Cowboy Bebop) or Miroku (Inuyasha) which would work better because I'm going to try and get Monica to dress up as Shippo (but that might a little difficult to make @_@)

These aren't in specific order, I think it'll just depend on what I feel like x3

Edit: New plan! I'm going as Spike and Monica will come as Ed! =D

I have it all figured out...not really. Just a general idea.
One day I'll go as Orihime
(probably friday)
Saturday: I'll try going as Ranma in girl form *snicker snicker*
Sunday.....Maybe saturday (switch around) my frog girl outfit.
Of course I still have to get everything planned out with my friends
*sigh* It's hard to organize a big group especially when they all go to school together but I don't...and I've ben put in charge of organizing everything....
This would really help if I even just lived near them
They all live 15min away....
OK....I'm done ranting.....

Well, sad story. There were going to be about...8-10 people but then we ran into problems. Some of them can't find the money, one or two can't find the time, and another does not have the ability to commit to anything.
So, taking all of that into account, only 4 of us are going together including me. We might have one or two other people joining us... just maybe .:bigcry:

everyone has such fun cosplays and groups. i can't wait to see them all. well, here's mine... friday: i am being mello (death note). i shall have a near, matt, light, L, mikami, misa, and possibly a takada with me. saturday: i was supposed to be in a digimon zero two group with all 12 digidestined but now it's down to five. i'm being taichi. there's also going to be a hikari, yamato, daisuke, and maybe a takeru. i was also supposed to be in an akatsuki group but that, apparently, fell apart as well. T_T now me is possibly being misa (death note), deidara (naruto), sasUKE (naruto) and whatever other random cosplay i feel like running around in for about five minutes. sunday: i'm going to be sasUKE (naruto) and i shall have my lov-, i mean, my nii-san, itachi, with me.

try not to be to nervous. Starting out at a small con is the way to go, everyone is friendly. Besides you won't be the only one nervous, everyone gets nervous when wearing a new cosplay for the first time.

i was the same way when i first started cosplaying, i was so paranoid that i was gonna look like a dork and feel stupid, but everyone was like "omg, i love your costume!!" everyone was really nice, and were in the same boat as i was.
it's normal to be nervous, but don't get scared! :D the world needs more cosplayer, and yea, at anime detour, its almost at the point where if you're NOT wearing a costume, you might stand out. XD

Plans have changed. Big surprise, right? Hah. So my modified costume list is as follows:

Tamahome (Fushigi Yugi)
Road Kamelot (D. Gray-man)
Shito Tachibana (Zombie Loan)

...and possibly Suboshi (Fushigi Yugi), Akito (Fruits Basket), and Sakuya Kira (Angel Sanctuary.) WOO! :D I'll be running a table with a friend, though, so look for me in the Artists' Alley.

So one thing has lead to another and I won't be making it to Detour this year, despite the fact that I am now living in the Cities, unlike previous years. It'll be extremely weird for me not to be at Detour, since I've attended every other one...But in any case...

I hope everyone else has a blast! ^.^

I'll be going as the following
Friday: Larry Butz (Phoenix Wright)
Saturday: Yamato (Naruto)
Sunday: Tobi (Naruto)
