~About Our Group~

Are you a cosplayer from Minnesota? Do you go to Minnesota anime conventions? Then this is the group for you!
We are a group dedicated to Minnesota cosplayers and convention goers. We hope it can serve as a place to meet fellow Minnesotan cosplayers!

We welcome you into our group if you:
*Are a cosplayer from Minnesota.
*Have attended an anime convention in Minnesota, even if you do not live there.
*Want to meet fellow Minnesotan cosplayers.
*Simply want to meet other cosplayers.

Even if you are not Minnesotan, or even a cosplayer, feel free to join! All we ask is that you have an interest in viewing cosplay photographs. :3

~How to Join~

All you need to do is click the "Join Group" button near the top of the page. You do not need to type anything in the request unless you want to do so.

~Group Rules~

1). Be kind and courteous towards your fellow group members.

2). If you are having problems with another member, have questions etc., please send a note to the group or one of the admin's personal accounts. We would be happy to help you out. When corresponding with us, we do ask that you try your best to use proper English, unless English is not your first language. No text talk please.

3). Mature content is allowed, as long as it follows DA rules and regulations. Also, we ask that you submit mature content to the "Mature" folder.

4a). Please submit your deviations to the proper folder. If you are unsure which folder the deviation belongs in, feel free to ask. (Read the description of the folder first.) You are allowed to submit the original and edited versions of photographs.

UPDATED!!! 4b). The Featured Folder
Each member is allowed to submit only one deviation to this folder per month. Only your best photos etc. should be put in here. Admins will be picky about accepting deviations submitted to this folder. I have now officially restricted use of this folder because members have not been following the rules.

5). For the time being, there is no limit on the number of deviations you can submit to the group. This is subject to change as we get more members.

6). Please, only submit your own photos or art to the group. From here on out, you are not allowed to submit a fellow deviant's work to our gallery.

7). Have fun~

(If there is anything I may have forgotten to post here, please let me know.)

Hey Everyone,
It's that time of year again, Detour time!

AD is this Friday through Saturday at the Hilton Double Tree in Bloomington.  Unfortunately the con is full which means you will not be able to get in if you did not preregister.  I hope everyone who is attending will have a great time this year and I look forward to meeting any of you who are in the group if we bump into each other!

Remember everyone to double (or even triple) check to make sure you've got everything packed if you're staying at a hotel!  And please remember to eat, we don't want anyone fainting!  The hotel is right by a TGI Friday's and a Dairy Queen that are always very welcoming to con-goers.  I think there is a Subway and a pizza place near by as well and if you're in pinching pennies there's always con suite or relatively inexpensive food in the dealers room!

Staying hydrated is also extremely important, so lease take advantage of the water they have set out all around the convention!  Remember soda is not the best source of hydration and that for every cup of coffee or tea you drink because they are diuretics you should be drinking two or so glasses of water.

Female or male if you're drinking, especially at a party, make sure you watch your drink!  If you have any problems with another con-goer don't be afraid to report them to con security or a nearby staff member!  Please be careful.  I don't want to scare anyone, but I do want everyone to stay safe and not come away from the con with any horror stories!

Also please remember to be mindful of your fellow con-goers, don't interrupt them for photos if they seem like they're busy or in a hurry, please ask before you hug or touch them, and if you are taking photos try to ask if you can post them.  Most of us are absolutely flattered when photos of us from cons get posted, and most cosplayers who don't want photos posted will usually just say no, but it's always best to ask!

That being said I hope everyone has a great time!  Good luck to those of you running panels.  To my fellow ladies and gentlemen who will be wearing short skirts or skimpy cosplays take no shit.

Have fun, stay safe, and please shower,

Hello, Looking to pull off a Star Wars grand entrance at a wedding in June 2014. I need 2 imperial troopers and a jedi knight to hire for an hour to pull off the "these are not the droids you are looking for sketch"... serious inquiry.

I have a question: 
It's my first time buying cosplay and going to detour dressed up. But my mom and I were discussing about cosplay and she said she wont buy from overseas. I reacted because I knew cosplay comes from over seas. Unless I'm wrong, are there any decent places in the US that create and ship good quality cosplays?

Anyone going to Meta Con this weekend? :-D I'm looking into getting into the Cosplay scene...but have no idea what I am doing. I've done RenFest before, and I was in dance for 8 years so getting into character isn't an issue....I just have NO idea what I would go as... >.<

I know I have less than a week to prep if I wanted to cosplay THIS weekend, but if I wanted to do ONE day, any suggestions? :-)

I'm a huge FF/Pokemon/SciFi fan, but I have really boy-short hair so anything with longer hair would need a wig and I have a limited budget this year.

I'm in the same boat.  The wife is definitely not interested in cosplay, but I would like to meet some friends that I can work with and learn how to create some of my own cosplays (and probably some friends to go to a con or two with) 

I have no idea where to start except for I know I'd love it. 

Cosplays I'd be interested in would be mostly gaming and some comic book related
League of Legends

Hi there, assuming you are in MN... I am looking to pull off a Star Wars grand entrance at a wedding in June 2014. I need 2 imperial troopers and a jedi knight to hire for an hour to pull off the "these are not the droids you are looking for sketch"... serious inquiry.
