Title: EF 17 Theme suggestions
Post by: Okami on 02.09.2009, 16:19:51
Since the theme for EF 16 is already done, why not discuss the theme for EF 17?

A theme I found on a flier for a motorcycle meet this weekend, that was totally furry unrelated but hat a lion on a Triumph Speed Triple or Street Triple was: Rock 'n' Roar.

Cue references to The Lion King being done to death until everyone's thoroughly sick of them...

Come on.. to think that the only things the EF crew can come up with given the African theme is "Lion King" ... you're underestimating the creativity of the people involved ^.^

Since there were 911 attendees this year, how about an Emergancy Services theme for EF17?
*Fire Brigade
*Police
*Ambulence
*Mountain rescue
*Coastguard

Plenty of scope for hot furries in uniforms. :)

And possibly plenty of ideas for the pawpet show script - which I assume dictates the theme to a large extent.

Does anyone have a complete list of all the themes from the previous EFs?
May I suggest Renaissance as a theme for EF 17? :)

Actually, the con theme comes first, and then the pawpet show production starts... ^.^

You'll find it either in the EF homepage history at the EF homepage, at the descriptions at wikifur, or at the german-language site des Trägervereins (http://eurofurence.de/index.php?convention-geschichte).

I agree, if only it means me lugging my LAPD SWAT gear along to wear one night...and die in from sweating tons.

Well, if you think about it, the britishfurs (you are one right?) thought up a brilliant plan: some of us will come in (colonial) British army gear (they even had a sign up during post-con) from the classic wars in Africa. XD... then ofcourse, you have the foreign legion, and so forth. (again LOL).



Anyway, I definetly think the 911 (US) / 112 (for non US) theme would be interesting... "Furgency/Furemergency Con"

What about 'Return to the 80's?'

A lot of furs have very fond memories of this area, from the typical SatAm cartoons, retro-games, down to the wonderful wrong music :) Think of the Thundercats, Inspector Gadget, the Fun Factory, Muppets, all those wonderful Jim Henson movies and so much more!

I like that theme a lot! I'd definitely go for it ... sadly it's not my task to choose the themes for EF. :/

As for the theme "Return to the 80's" ... There sure are a lot of people who'd love this theme. But this theme is a bit boring for the younger attendees of the convention since they were born too late to experience the 80's. ;)

The 80th was cool:  
We had Reagan, Nukes, MJ, "A clear picture where the bad guys are" and at the very end everything started to get confused  ^^


But i would suggest the 60th, multi color and flower power...

"kreischend bunte klamotten" and hats wich are big enought for fursuits ;D

How about the 19th century. With monocles, Giant Top Hats and Moustaches. Oh well If my fursuit is ready I'd wear a Giant 1,7 meter tophat anyway (If I can build one xD).

But I'm for the 911 theme too. (wouldn't fit into the EF around the world theme actually but hey. Emergency uniforms, crashing twin tow *is directly inprissoned by the FBI because of terorrism suspicion*)

Steam punk! Victorian Steam Punk :D

The 911 theme can be fun too, however I think I will be put on at least 20 no-fly lists if I come in the fursuit I had in mind for that theme.

911 is typical american. Since it's an european con it doesn't sound like it should be 911 ;p

Unless it has been done sometime in the past, there needs to be a Pirates themed EF, if only for the fact that I have a stage performance that I'm just dying to put on for a pirate themed con

Since next year's MMC (2nd biggest German Con) will have a Steampunk theme, I doubt ef will have it as well within the next few years.

i actually like the sound of the 911/112/999 emergency services idea :) it gives people lots of room to play about with various ideas (for example K9/dog units) it also stands as a metaphorical tip-of-the-hat to the hard work the guys in the emergency services do day-in day-out (especially so at cons be they furry or not).

Oh yeah. Romans sounds really cool.
I don't know of any fandom that really is into it. Otherwise some words might help for other ideas:

Medivals times: Kings and Queens
the future: Tomorror is now

uff. But I'm happy with the roman Empire.
