I know what you're all thinking, "Wow, Detour '08 just ended! Why would we have a thread for next year?" Well, I know that my friends have already started plans for next year. Anyone else already thinking ahead?

A group of us were thinking Zelda, but, who knows if that will happen?! : )

It doesn't hurt to start early. :)

I've got Sha Gojyo, Rakka, and Hikaru planned for next year. I have Abel planned, but I don't think I'll get it done by Detour 2009.

I agree, no harm in starting early... I've been on a 2 or 3 year break from Detour but I'l like to get back to it! I miss it.

I'm thinking I'll do a Hokuto from Tokyo Babylon, Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight.... other than that I'm pretty open.

That's what I was thinking too -
I know we'll need all the time we can get!

Sha Gojyo?
I LOVE Saiyuki!
I'll have to come find/attack you.
: )

Ooh! Yuki sounds awesome!


Maybe this is the year to finally create a FF Army..

I'll gladly join that FF army!

I'm planning on going as Reno for next year and getting a couple of my friends to join me as other random FFVII characters.

Gosh, I think it might be better for me to start planning way early. I want to attend Anime Iowa this year, but I don't think that's going to happen. Ah, well. I definitely will TRY MY HARDEST to make it to Detour in 2009.

Might do a cheap and simple Ocarina of Time Link cosplay. My sister knows how to alter clothes, so maybe if I ask nicely, she'll help me. I'm hopeless with a sewing machine. >.<

Ouran High School Host club... The wonderland episode.

I'd be tamaki and have a group of others. and maybe a small death note group. I'd be near =D

kereneko: OMG. I was thinking about that too! XD
Ironic because of 08 and the Air Gear thing.
I'm planning on bringing Haninozuka (Hunny)
I'm debating on which version though,
either the version in the dream or the version after haruhi wakes up...
I love the giant clock~<3
Haha, I saw you online earlier on YIM but I was reluctant to send an instant message to you, since it gave me a warning like it may cost you money since you were on a mobile device. XD;

kereneko
05-10-2008, 08:42 AM
nope.. i doesnt cost me money. >< and yay hunny!

yeah i think we all decided on a ouran high school group like Saturday at detour >< we all thought it be cool to do the wonderland versions.

There's still plenty of time until AnimeIowa... you shold totally try for it. Don't usually start my cosplay effort until about now anyway because I have to finish with school and come home. Don't give up! Ganbate-ne!

I would be part of the FF army! I was Vincent, and I plan to wear it again in 2009. And a friend of mine wants to be Lucrecia. Not really promising to go but I'm more or less planning on it.

I was a frog in the '08 one. ( the girl in the frog hat, green tank, and green tripp pants ). I want to do that again in '09. I'm also thinking about doing a Kenshin. But I'm not sure what else I want to do....

Fenix42
06-09-2008, 12:13 PM
Well, what other series do you like? That's a good place to start. :)
And yay Kenshin! XD

I was there last year and didn't cosplay, so this year I am! ^^ I'm going as Mikuru Asahina (the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) school and maid fighter, and Rin Kagamine (Vocaloid). My friend is cosplaying with me as Haruhi Suzumiya and Miku Hatsune. We can't wait! :D

06-11-2008, 09:21 PM
Gahahaha! I have fgured it out! My friend and I got together to plan out fits. Two of my friends and I are doing a Transformers type outfit. It's gonna be pretty cool. I also talked to a few other people and decided I'd be Reno from FF. I hav ethe red hair for it, so why not?

I'm going as Isaak Fernand Von Kampfer from Trinity Blood. And I might be Matt from Death Note again. Depends on if I want to redo the vest.

Oh yes I am! If I see you, I will hug you. Last Detour I was crusnik Abel, and I have another Trinity Blood cosplay up my sleeve.. perhaps.. for next year. Don't want to jinx it. ;)

Man Tifa will return for sure in AD 09. >_>

Along with Nue, from Karas, and Midvalley the Hornfreak again. ^o^ I enjoy playing an instrument with mediocrity but still getting paid for it. xDDDD

And I like the FF Army idea... I'ma make a new thread about it. o.o;;

I'm pretty sure I'm going to Detour next year. I'll be bringing Arystar Krory from D. Gray-man, Gria Hunter from FFTA2, and something else. I'm sure I can convince my boyfriend to dye his hair silver again and he can wear Spoiler Kensei from Bleach

I'm trying to convince my mom to let me go to the Detour...I've been trying for probably 2 or 3 years. x.x

Anyway.

I'm planning on cosplaying Franziska, Trucy and Hobofeen from the Ace Attorney fandom. Anybody else interested in joining the lolyer invasion? <:

I'm going into 11th grade, and I've been trying since 8th or so. So yeah. XD My mom thinks I'm still too young, however.

But I shall prevail! >D

Uhh.
Sorry kid who is older than me but isn't allowed to go to detour, but Detour just goes downhill every year. :/

A lot of people decided that 08 was the last detour they're go to.

We need to send some suggestions or detour won't exist in a couple years.

caffe fase
08-02-2008, 11:45 PM
Well.
If the Detour is supposedly 'dying,' why did they change locations to accommodate more people?

Just asking, of course.

Kino017
08-03-2008, 01:38 AM
I'm not sure why they changed locations, but if I remember correctly, Detour 07 tickets were not sold out before the con day, unlike 08...I know some people wont be going to Detour anymore, but I'm sure that it will stil exist in a few years. ^-^

kanghead
08-03-2008, 02:57 AM
They have the same people just about every year, and most people in the MN area go to Detour as their first convention, and there are a lot of little kids running around now.

And their events are kinda getting more and more lame. D;
They better make improvements along with their new hotel.

Kino017
08-03-2008, 03:35 PM
I understand what you mean. I hope they do make some improvements for next year.

Cerri
08-06-2008, 02:15 PM
Detour '08 did suck. It was my 2nd convention so I didn't really know how much it sucked until I attended KAKKOI|CON this year. xD

I wish the mall was still nearby. That way, if it's still lame I can escape it by going to the mall xD.

But with the new location and price increases hopefully it'll be better.

08-10-2008, 11:27 PM
Just getting to go and cosplay is what's fun for me. But I didn't get to go to '08 (tickets were sold out), so...I couldn't tell you if I thought it sucked or not. But '07 was lots of fun for me.

I'm going to cosplay Rhyme from the Worlds Ends With You, and either Ginko from Mushi-shi or Medli from Windwaker.

kanghead
08-15-2008, 03:46 AM
I found out that one of the kids in my group might not go, so if that happenes, there will be no DBSK but there will be an Agito/Akito from Airgear.

Fenix42
08-22-2008, 01:52 PM
I guess the two issues I had this year was the loud people early Sunday morning when I was trying to sleep and the photoshoots were not really set up (which I've already hear that will change next year ^^). Other than that, I had a blast. :D

Serria
09-04-2008, 05:23 PM
Detour isn't going downhill, I don't think. Detour's attendance has been steadily increasing. That's why they're moving to a new hotel! :D I've been to every single Anime Detour, and I just feel like it gets more and more fun. But that's just me. I think how much you enjoy a con depends on who you're with and all.

Well, I for sure want to go to Detour again in 2009... I haven't made many plans though on what to wear. Aeris has kind of become my signature costume, and I've worn it every con (washed of course!), but I dunno if people are thinking I'm boring.. o.o

09-04-2008, 07:36 PM
Any fellow Mudkip Army members going? =D

I'm planning on having a full-fledged Mudkip Army costume ready to go and complete with a Keyblade for Detour '09 along with my Reno costume. ^_^

kanghead

A muckip army would be amazing.
I got news I couldn't go to detour 09, so I won't be there to see it. D:

Blip
09-21-2008, 09:27 PM
The mudkip army at Kakkoicon was amazing. =D

I wasn't able to make it to Detour 08 because of some problems with tickets and they sold out before mine got in. ;_; I'm planning on getting a ticket for 09 as soon as possible. I'm not entirely sure what I'll be wearing, but hopefully I'll have Kyo(Myaku) of Dir en grey done by then. I'm almost 100% sure that I'll have 10 year old Hiruma from Eyeshield 21 though. Can't say what else. :/

If you see our ranger group come take pictures. We are going to set up a photo shoot because our guy in the megazord cant wear it all day. T.T oh well. he needs to walk too. It will also have an alarm so no stealing him! we're also trying for the cosplay contest. so wish us luck in getting in XP
