It's a bit early to make final decisions on costumes, but has anyone decided on their costumes next year? I am pretty set already!
Ion From Xodus .G. (http://www.sheezyart.com/view/229978/) (An original character of mine, that outfit is not final)
A Male version of Chise from Saikano (perhaps Shuji)
And Blonde Haired Kid from Kingdom Hearts 2...

I might whip out brave mode sora as well....

Also I am looking for a Chise, so if you are interested, contact me!

I'm planning on cosplaying as Sakura Avalon's Red Cape battle costume from Card Captor Sakura. I also might try to do Tifa from FFVII, but i'm not sure. I might even enter the Masq. Contest next year for the 1st time! :bigtu:

Maybe I'll have a costume for next year. Cure Black or some random Kinomoto Sakura costume

Serria
03-18-2005, 01:22 PM
I'm thinking that the next costume that I make will be Celes Chere from Final Fantasy VI, Amano art style. Also have been toying with the idea of making a Final Fantasy Tactics White Mage. Those are my current new ideas, though I'm definitely goin to fix up Zelda a bit. :)

Seung Mina 2P from SC (dreamcast version) :D I really wanna do that one...(And Ivy, too, but I'm not sure if it'll happen by then or not).

I wanna work gradually on the Utena costume that SoA-chan did this year, so I hope to do that one as well. I wanna do someone from Inu-Yasha, but I'm torn between Kagome, Sango and Kagura.

If you're going to do Ivy... better start it now... you have no idea how many parts that costume has to do it correctly.

Definately some more J-rock. I've been thinking maybe Obscure Kyo, if I can get the rest of the group together... ^___^ *pokepokes singe*

SongofAmazon
03-18-2005, 08:25 PM
Hmm... I bet I'll have another Ami/Sailor Mercury costume by then... maybe Sailor Mahou-Henshin... that is if I can get back here for the con. The more I think about it, the more I want to, but we'll see where my spring break falls.

If nothing goes totally wrong (and it very well could with this one) Cage Kaoru! My friend with the Cage Shinya will wear it this time. I'm really hoping I can come up with some people to be the other 3 members (hopefully that don't live as far a way as my Toshiya who never made it does).
Next year I'll for sure stay for more than one day, so I'll probably fix up the Myaku costume and bring that too.

Crimson Deity- Actually, Treasure_chan and I were discussing costumes for next year earlier, and Cage came up...more than once (though some other outfits did as well). So if all else fails and the two of us can't gather the rest of our group, we could probably help fill in.

Treasure-chan- You now have the right to smack me upside the head for any of the above statement. ^.^ (Though I don't know if our Kaoru from this year will agree to any costume that doesn't involve a prop that she can molest us with. XD And if anyone else is reading this and dosn't know what I'm talking about...you probably really don't want to know )

treasure_chan
03-18-2005, 11:58 PM
Actually Singe, I totally agree. XD Sounds good to me. That is, if other people are interested. XD

Crimson Diety, were you there this year? o.o Or am I like totally just blanking out? ^^;

treasure_chan: Yeah, I was there. Only on Saturday though because thanks to the nasty weather, my driveway iced over on Friday and my crappy little car refused to cooperate (had to wait until Saturday to bum a ride with my dad ^^") Right when I got there, I saw you guys out by registration and took your picture, remember? I was in charge of my little sister and her friends, so I had a constant train 13-yr-olds. Ah well, Singe's got a picture of me in her gallery.
Singe: Well, I really hope you guys do get your group back together because it was awesome! (really wish my picture of you guys turned, but alas, my camera seems to have earned itself a one-way trip out my third-floor window) If not though, I would love the help. ^^

On a totally random note, the idea of a massive D.N. Angel cosplay group has come up for next year. What do you guys think about the idea? Good? Bad? Utterly insane?

Never seen/read It but If It's theres a simple costume I can do, sure...I'll even reserch the character... Just tell me which one...uh if theres a short charrie I'd be good there...I'm only 4'11" heh....anyway Anyone going as A Sesshomaru next year? I'm planning on being a Rin.

treasure_chan -- If you do Seras, I'll do Integra =^^=

I've decided I will finish that Animerica cover Utena costume that I want to do so badly :3 I'll try to work on a Sailor Neptune for you, SoA-chan! =^_^=

Oiy, the "to-do" list just keeps getting longer and longer...

DeadLegato

Attention: Are you thinking you might want to do a skit in next year's Masquerade? Then you must write the Anime Detour convention organizers NOW. As of this point, skits are on the block to be axed for next year. If you do not speak up, there will be none, and the Masquerade will be run as strictly walk-ons only. The Masquerade staff cannot do anything about this, without your help that is. That is why we need you to write and tell them to make the right decision.

Go to the forums. Email the main web addresses. (Not the cosplay address, because I already know you want skits... I dunno if I'm returning next year. Depends on if I move come May or not.)
But the key thing is: BE POLITE. Shouting and going "Wah, meanies won't let us have skits!" won't help. You need to politely write to them and let them know that you, the cosplayers and the attendees, want skits.

This is up to you guys now. Get your friends to help you write in. Be nice. If you don't, there won't be much of an opportunity to complain about it next year.

There are a couple of short characters both male and female in the series, but at this point we haven't really figured out who is gonna cosplay who or really if anyone even wants to deall with all the time/money that would be put into correctly cosplaying some of the characters...reminds me of the Rayearth group we were supposed to have finished for this year's AD...^.^

Just to be safe, I'd still put pressure on them. (You've sent them an email? One is plenty. ^_^) It won't hurt to rattle them a little bit (BUT ONLY A LITTLE!) over a little rumor, if that's what it was.

Random question, also stupid one but thoose who have wigs, where'd you guys get your styrofoam wig heads? my friend got me a wig but the store she got it from was all outta wig heads so i need to get one soon ^.^ This small paint bucket [don't worry it's clean] is pissing my wig off.

04-19-2005, 12:49 PM
Most wig stores have a few extra wig heads around that they're willing to sell, usually for like $3 and up. They usually sell wig heads at http://www.cosplaysupplies.com for pretty cheap, especially if you get them from the year-end special section.

I bought mine at amphigory when I bought my wig, but in the past I've seen them for around $3.00 at Sally's. Also, many stores that sell hair extensions also carry wigs--some of those will sell foam heads. (at least that's true for the ones I've been too)

If I can, I will. It depents on when the hold the con. It looks like my spring break *might* fall on the convention. Otherwise, I pretty much couldn't go at all... since I will be in Ohio next year for college.

Crimson Deity

Depends when it will be held next year. If it's later in March then it was this year, I'll be on break and probaly attend all three days. Otherwise, I hope to be there Friday evening and all day Saturday...at least that's better than just going on Saturday like i did this year. :thumbsup:

04-20-2005, 08:39 PM
I will prolly...next year my friend's gonna be driving so whee ^.^hopefully my mom wont plan shit right on my spring break if the cons then...do they have the suggested dates up yet on the site?

-Rin

Jen-neko
04-20-2005, 10:43 PM
How many days I'm there depends on where I am by next March :P I'm trying to finish my AA by the end of fall semester, but I'm not sure if it's gonna happen or not....even if it does, I don't know if I'm gonna take some time off from school, or go somewhere else in the spring (where, however, I have no clue..)

So, yeah. Maybe, maybe not. I'll try to set aside Saturday and Sunday at least, though.

I think they said that it was going to be in the same place next year, 2 weeks later. I think Anime Detour and SakuraCon are going to be on the same weekend next year from what I remember them saying at the AD closing and the SakuraCon book.


I think for me next year (if work stops messing with my hours), I'll go to AX and maybe one in the week or two after that. Round the World trip heading east from Aus. start in LA, end in Tokyo. :)

I've already gone as two original characters. ^^ My first cosplay ever was my otaku senshi Sailor Autumn, and this year at AD, I dressed as Caloris's Sailor Caloris. ^^

A friend of mine designed the Empyrium Sailor Senshi for her fanfic, and I think it'd be really fun to do an original design costume too. I'm terrible at original designs, but my friend would gladly let me cosplay her design, as long as I plugged her fic. ^^''

do we have dates for AD 06' yet...because I need to know so i can pre-reg. I can't afford to spend $50 anymore ^.^;

My original design is from a story that I attempted to start writing...I kinda crapped out on it and stopped though. It's a pretty cool design. The guy is an elf.(once again here is the link http://www.sheezyart.com/view/229978/) I might see if I can get another person to do the bad guy of the story, but i still have to design his costume.

I have decided to add Mizuho from Onegai Teacher to my cosplay "to-do" list =^_^= (just went to the Goodwill and found a shirt that'd work for her teacher outfit...with some slight alterations, of course). If I can find a decent red shirt so I can do Gren (Cowboy Bebop), then I'll do him, too (been looking for awhile, but no luck =x_x= Grr, I wanna crossplay!).

I still plan on doing my Tigergirl, but I've yet to find faux fur that I like. Found some online that's close, debating about ordering a swatch. If that's the only place I can get decent faux fur, then so be it :P

There might be one more, but I'll let that be a surprise =^_^=

SongofAmazon
06-29-2005, 09:53 PM
It's still up in the air whether I will make it back or not. My spring break starts that saturday... so if I don't have any friday classes, or just early ones, I could at least make it for saturday and sunday. But that also depends on money and finding roomies. We shall see.

Jen-neko
06-30-2005, 12:45 AM
This year won't be as convenient as last year, since my spring break is going to be toward the beginning of March and the con is toward the end of March :/ (last year it fell on the weekend of spring break, so I didn't have class on Friday and was able to drive down with my friends nice and early).

I'm gonna start saving money as soon as possible (and this year I won't spend so damn much on Christmas presents for people who could care less about me =>_>=;; ). Plus I'm pretty sure I know who I'll be rooming with already, so that's nice and convenient :D

Anyway, in addition to Mizuho and Gren, there is Fruits Basket cosplay in my future (as my signature dictates ;P). If I could settle on one character....=>_>=;; I think I know who I want to do, though. But I'll let that be a secret for now :P

For those Fruits Basket cosplayers, two or three or my friends will be doing Kyo Sohma, Yuki Sohma, and Shigure Sohma. It all depends if we can get their costumes done on time. It'll be their first time to cosplay, although they've been there since the con first started.

I'm going to my first-ever anime convention in Dallas this weekend (AnimeFest), where I will crossplay as Ran Kotobuki from SuperGALS!

I live in Bloomington though, and had no idea there was an anime con right under my nose! I will definately make plans to go to that one, and I'm thinking I will either do Yomiko Readman from R.O.D, or (if I lose enough weight in time) Sakaki-san from Azumanga.

Hooray for crossplay (especially you girls who crossplay as guys! That is so very cool!)

Looks like I have a new Sora costume I have to make.... ooooo its bluuuuuueeee....head over to kh2.co.uk if you havent seen it yet... It's always fun to be one of the people to do a certain costume first

FirearmofMutiny
09-01-2005, 06:44 PM
Hmmm... the idea going through my head right now is Goh Hinogami from Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution. This time, literally no one will know who I'm cosplaying as. XD (Last year, at least people at the U of M's anime club saw Cromartie, so they knew who I was)

Hmm, I always thought the new Sora suit was black. But on closer inspection it is blue. I love it even more! :love:

Sora's KH2 outfit is black.... but there's also a blue (and red) version apparently :P I like the blue one best, though.

I'm thinking of scratching Mizuho from the list and replacing her with someone else, though I haven't decided who yet. I'm debating between a few (though mostly Kagome and Mamimi.....Mamimi because I want to, and Kagome because I already have most of the materials, I just never actually made the costume =>.>=). I still plan on doing Gren, though. And a character from Fruits Basket (though I'll leave whom a secret for now :P)

this year... anime detours gunna be my first con O_O and I'm psyched I don't care if its in 2006 I'm already plotting and saving... I'm gunna crossplay as hatsuharu sohma rawr it'll be fun but hair i need help with I'm not a wig fan but I have no idea how i'd find a goood place to get hair cut dyed and styled without killing my hair...

I crosplayed Haru for the CNanime Con, and the wig wasn't too bad... I got a friend to cut it for me, and I found in a shoppers drugmart (a drugstore, and beautysupplies) this dye stick, that colours a wig. they have black. I just got a white, wig, a guy's wig, that was caooed "rockstar" and I cut the back to make it look more Haru like, then got the dye stick, and coloured the back with that. To hide my hair, I made three braids, and just bobbypinned them to my head... I have alot of hair, and it only took me 6 bobby pins to do this. If you have anymore questions, e-mail me, paranoiaprincess@hotmail.com

also, if you crosplay him, expect to be 'fangirl'ed all over. My friends went as Kyo, and Ayame... people noticed Kyo, then looksed at me, and kept asking to hug us... I had my own fangroup and everything. There were hundreds of pictures, although I can't seem to find any online.

anyway, good luck with Haru

I had a lot of fun crossplaying as Ran Kotobuki at AnimeFEST (my first ever con!) down in Dallas last weekend. I might recycle that cosplay for AD if I can't think of something better.

After all, it probably won't be many of the same people there.

09-17-2005, 01:14 PM
So far I have Rider from Fate/Stay Night and Windy from Card Captor Sakura (To go along with Y-lime's costume. ^^) planned and for sure I'll be cosplaying as the hentai Sakura!

Midori445

I was Sakura (from Naruto) last year I plan to be her again also I'm doing a deadly sins group with some friends and I will be dressing up a Sloth:bigtu:

10-09-2005, 11:41 PM
I know for sure that I'm doing Lord Canti from FLCL again--though with numerous repairs, revamps, and just plain new things (it needs a lot of work...).

Besides that, I'm planning on doing Roy Mustang from FMA--I can help it, I just like the series that much.....

Hmmmm, maybe I'll pull Commander Amarao from FLCL (the eyebrow guy) out of retirement.... Ahh, who knows...

Oh, and Hentai_Sakura--I was the Sakon from Friday night at Anime Iowa, I hope you're doing that costume again--that kicked @$$


Edit--On a darker note--That Sakon has been officially retired and all pictures of it burned, it was a mistake in every sense of the words "mistake" and "cosplay" and will never again see the light of day

Hentai_Sakura
10-11-2005, 10:54 PM
Sakon! *pounces on* I do plan on doing hentai Sakura again, I love the costume so much..I just might have to make it a costume I wear at every con. ^^ Only, I hope by Detour I can get a katana and redo the kunai holster so it'll stay up better.

Can't wait to see your Canti again, you looked awsome!

Jen-neko
10-13-2005, 08:14 PM
Well, I finally settled on Mamimi from FLCL for Halloween (things just kept going wrong with the other costumes I planned =-_-=). So, I'm probably gonna be bringing that. If I can find you in your Lord Canti, I'd love to take pictures with you, Amarao =^^=

This might sound odd, but I will be trying to make up from Florida for Anime Detour; it coincides with spring break at my college and I've wanted to check out a con out of state. If I can make it and depending on if I get the other costume done, I will either be cosplaying 2 versions of Sabin Rene Figaro from Final Fantasy VI, if I don't get my hair dyed, then I will be going as Tenchi Masaki from Tenchi Muyo! and Miroku from Inuyasha.
Wish me luck on planning to get up there (and if anyone wants to share a hotel because of the costs, let me know so I can try and set up beforehand =0 p )

Singe
11-10-2005, 09:20 PM
Auros: Good luck on getting up here for Detour! It's stilll a pretty young con, but that doesn't really mean anything, since I've had as much fun there as I've had at AI in the past. Good luck on the costumes, too. There aren't a lot of Tenchi cosplayers out there (especially guys) that I've seen, so it'll be cool to see, if you make it to AD. ^.^


On a side note, for my personal cosplay....Think recent CLAMP release...and a series I know basically nothing about. :thumbsup: But it's pretty, and working on it makes me want to make a Kazekage Gaara outfit...

11-14-2005, 10:54 PM

And I have another costume from Soul Calibur I'll be wearing one day too.

12-15-2005, 04:58 PM
I'm planning on going but have not yet decided what to take. I'll probably be cosplaying as Hisoka from Yami no Matsuei, Jonouchi from Yugioh and Omi from Weiss Kruez.

Jen-neko
12-16-2005, 01:43 PM
I'm toying with the idea of an Utena costume, though I can't seem to settle on something...I have it narrowed down to two, but I can't decide =x_x= If I get stuck, I'll likely scrap that idea...

Just trying to come up with other costumes aside of Mamimi...If anyone has any ideas, do let me know :P

This year to Anime Detour I plan

Ciel from Tsukihime
Lust from Full Metal Alchemist (probably her last appearance, since this show is waaaaaayyyy overdone these days)
Haydee from Gankutsuou
Safety from Risky/Safety
Caterina Sforza from Trinity Blood

For AD I'm torn between Chrono and Rosette from Chrono Crusade... leaning more towards Chrono....

Is anyone looking for cosplay groups or anything? I'm open to suggestion...

*dances*

Jen-neko
01-09-2006, 04:08 PM
I've settled (finally) on Jessica from Dragon Quest VIII (both her normal outfit, and her bunny suit for later in the evening :P) and Kairi from KH2 for my other costumes. I still plan on doing Mamimi, only I need to make a few touch-ups.....might invest in a better wig, if I find I have the money.

Now if only I could get to SR Harris to buy fabric...=;_;=

CapsuleCorp
01-09-2006, 10:14 PM
SR Harris... *drooling sounds*

I suppose since it's getting close, I can mention my own cosplay plans, even though they're not set in stone yet. I'm somewhat attached to a group that includes GreenFire, khenemetset, and RaDragon (somewhat? Okay, FULLY) so it sort of depends on what others are bringing. But Anime Detour will be my debut of Wolfram from Kyou Kara Maou. Anything after that depends on what the gang is doing - you're sure to see Yami Yugi and at least one Saiyuki costume, but I don't know if Hiei will get to play this time.

RaDragon76
01-10-2006, 10:29 AM
CapsuleCorp- I know I'm bringing Ryou Bakura and Hisoka Kurosaki for sure but I haven't narrowed down a third character yet. Probably I'll bring Doma Arc Joey though. I thought I might bring Omi from Weiss but I think it'll be too cold since I'm cosplaying him in assassin mode and he wear shorts then.

TheDarkOne
01-10-2006, 02:33 PM
Ahhh I am so excited there will my Yu-Gi-Oh charries there! :toothy: :toothy: :toothy: :toothy: :toothy:

01-10-2006, 10:46 PM
Ack! Shorts in March? Probably not a good idea. :) Granted, it's later in March this year, but in MN (like here in WI) you never know when it's going to be 60 or 20 in March. Definitely tailor whatever else you bring to the weather. Hence why I'm really not thinking about bringing Kougaiji, too drafty. Depends on how much force Yaone exerts on me. ;)

Too many costumes, too little time, particularly for just sitting around Artist's Alley...

GreenFire
01-10-2006, 11:11 PM

Trust me...force will be exerted.

So far I'm planning to bring:
Yaone-Saiyuki
Yuuri-Kyou Kara Maou
Kaiba-Yugioh
Yami Bakura-Yugioh
Possibly Kurama if I get roped into being the masquerade which I hope i'm not...this would be my third time in the masquerade as kurama in as many years at detour..
and possibly Homura, if Yaone's shoes start to hurt too much.

khenemetset
01-11-2006, 02:04 AM
CapsuleCorp: So you're fully attached to us? YAY. Yugi hopes to get Yami out and about a little...can't have you sitting on your butt the entire time after all. Yugi wants attention. XD Might as well live it up I suppose.

For me...

Tsuzuki to go with RaDragon's Hisoka. Though I know I have to make some additions to my trenchcoat which I bought and love and works well for the character. ^^

Yugi: Duelist Kingdom, Dungeon Dice Monsters, Battle City and probably his star pajamas versions. Dungeon Dice Monsters and star jammies being the new additions to the costumes. ^^

Anything else is up in the air. I know we won't have the Kyo Kara Maoh maids finished by them as we've not even bought anything for them and can't untill the end of the month. But who knows...we might bring Sora and Sunao if we finish them though it would be without wigs at the moment...sadly

TheDarkOne
01-11-2006, 03:45 PM

I know the feeling. The weather here in Missouri can be like that too. It was in the 60s this passed Sunday but now its been steadily in the 30-40 range. Wearing shorts in the 60s wouldn't be a problem but if the temperature would suddenly drop then it would be. :toothy:

Greenfire- That's a lot of costumes. I don't think that I'm bringing that many myself unless I drag out my Mokuba costume again or finish some other versions of Jounounchi in time. I wish Khene and I could be finished with KKM maids in time but we can't even get the material for it right now thanks to my computer having been to the repair shop. No money equals no material. When I finally do get some money I'll need to buy a wig first before anything else.

TheDarkOne- Yeah, we are some of the people in the Yugioh post on the ACen forum.

LOL yup...we're EVERYWHERE!!!! :D What can I say? When you meet several like-minded individuals from around the region who love to form big groups with costumes from the same series...it just happens.

Uh oh, looks like both Yami and Alastair will have to make an appearance. :) I'm concentrating mainly on finishing Wolfy, though - he needs a wig and I can't settle on which one to buy. He's my major debut and wants to plaaayyyy...

I haven't been to Detour before but I did attend ACen last year.

CapsuleCorp- I really don't have a major debut for Detour unless Khene and I have a chance to finish Sora and Sunoa's (Sukisho) school uniforms in time for the con. I don't think we will have wigs for them though. I think Khene wants to find wigs that are the right color and that she doesn't have to work to much with but we'll see.
