Animangafreak, learning how to do the Dancing Dragon sounds cool. Now you have me thinking that maybe I should do Aang's outfit from Day of Black Sun. I'm meeting with a friend tomorrow and we'll decide then. For the MoA raid, I haven't done one before, but I more than qualify for being 21.

@Sgt Chase. Good luck! I'll probably be watching Avatar over again pretty soon, but if I see the whole body or bottom half of a guard, I'll try to save it for you.

@ animewolf. Awesome! I'll try watching and memorizing some of the Moves. Actually, I'm going to sew up the costume Zuko wears when he finally meets up with the Avatar and they learn firebending and that Dancing Dragons. You're over 21? Great! I mean I know I'm more than okay for behaving in public, but I'm not yet 21...This September though!

@ Sakurai. Ooh! Yay for being 20! It's a nice, round number. :P

I've never been on an MoA raid, but I heard the Anime Detour peeps used to do that when the hotel and convention was right next to the MoA. Axelismyhomeboy told me that someone on the Anime Detour site was still trying to get a group together for an MoA raid anyway. And as I've never gone on one (or to Detour), and as they had Nickolodeon Universe there, I really want to try it out. Ah, and we've not even set a date or time for the MoA raid, though I don't think we should yet.

I had brilliant idea recently. For the Detour I was going to make fake Avatar coupons. At the Kakkoicon, someone handed out fake Jenova Witness tracks and someone told me people do that at conventions. So I wanted to make a coupon "Good for one free ride on a flying bison." Something about Avatar Aang being so grateful for the help people gave him in defeating the evil firelord that he wanted everyone to be able to ride a flying bison. If I draw a flying bison and make these fake coupons, do you think that is plagiarism? And what can I do to make sure it isn't? Well, I mean I wanted to hand them out at Detour, but then would it be plagiarism if I handed a few out at Nick U? Or do you guys think that Nick. U will enjoy the joke and let me pass them out?

I was wondering. I'm already putting this together. If all this works out, if I sent you guys the image, does anyone else want to print some out and hand out some coupons too? No one has too, but if you guys cosplay Avatar in Detour, and if you want to, I thought it might be rather fun. Spoofs and good fun like that rocks!

Just for a head's up, the MOA staff generally hates us and will pick on you to no end. Make sure you bring your I.D., too, because they get especially picky when we show up in costumes. Last year they actually refused to let some people in the mall (I think it was because of their specific costume... i.e. showing too much skin, blood everywhere, ect....but just for a warning)

AH! Thank you xKatsu!
Hmmm...and here someone else told me that MoA was the better place to go to cosplay? But turning people away because of costumes that showed too much skin and blood does make sense...*grimace* Well, I hope this works out. I'd like to try and see if we can get a group of nonAvatar cosplayers to go too, some MoA mall raid veterans.

I'd be willing to go. Except I don't really know what you do on a MoA raid yet xD

Make sure it's only a small group. Last year we tried to go on a Mall raid with some friends they removed us from the Mall property, wouldn't let us in, and the police got involved /:

Yeah, I've heard the MOA has problems with costumes. Some friends showed up as Klingons a few years ago and were asked to leave.

I've decided to go as Aang in Day of Black Sun, which should be easier to put together.

Animangafreak - I like the idea with the coupons. I think if you put near the drawing something like copyright Nickelodeon that should help. People at Anime Detour will probably enjoy the joke, the folks at Nick U, maybe not. (Someone may think it's an actual coupon for a ride.) You could put something on it that says, This coupon is only good in the Avatar's universe, not ours, and then only with a real live six legged flying bison that can fly under its own power.

@ Sakurai Atushi, I don't quite know either, but I do know I'd like to try the Avatar ride at Nick U and shop Avatar stuff in the stores real quick. I'm assuming you just trek all over the MoA looking at stuff. :P

@Cerri...no kidding? Man, I really wanted to go, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to face getting kicked out or the police involved? But I guess I will give it a shot.

@Animewolf- Well, I had to google pictures for the Klingons...but I've gotta sorta admit that having to leave might make some sense. Only because they might scare children? I mean as cool as it is, it might be a bit much, especially for a G rated place?
Ah, I like that Aang outfit. I think that one is pretty cool. B-) Maybe I'll add a disclaimer on half the tickets, the ones I plan on handing out at the Nick U. Course I'd be sure to make certain that people knew it wasn't a ride. :P The whole idea though about it being a ride is kinda funny. XD

I was in a group. It was small, but a group. And then most of them didn't pre-register. -_- And the ones that are going aren't going to cosplay. (party poopers.) So it's just me and my friend cosplaying, again. We are just doing Naruto characters. (I know that is over done, but I don't care. lol) We are doing:
Gaara and Temari
Sasuke and Sakura
Obito and Rin

(I'm cosplaying the ones listed second.)

If you see us say hi! ... My friend will be like WTF? though. Oh well, I guess I'll have to fill her in... or not. ^-^ This is our first Anime Detour. Our first con was Kakkoi con last year. I was also Temari and my friend was Hinata.

A mall raid sounds fun, but with my luck I'd be kicked out.
