Eurofurence 19 theme ideas
« on: 28.08.2011, 15:02:47 »

I don't know if the theme for EF 18 has been decided yet, but if not, we could try to think of some things here...

EDIT: Mystifur says the theme has already been decided. But we can still suggest things for EF 19 instead?

Down Under, Australia
As long as we don't have too many Australians at Eurofurence this could probably be very unique. There could be panels about didgeridoo playing and other things specific to Australia.

The Mayas
Kiantis suggested this on the IRC channel. It ties in very well with the year 2012 and there is plenty of story material for the pawpet show.

Space and science fiction
This year's EF touched a bit on the future, but we haven't really had anything like this before. A pawpet show in space would be really interesting I think. Maybe including time travel? Or maybe 'time' could be the theme itself?

The Ocean
This would be a little harder to work out, but an underwater theme? It could be nice. :)

Arctic
I think someone else suggested this. Perhaps combined with arctic culture, such as the Nordic countries (so the Swedes and Finns can laugh) or maybe northern Canada.

Russia
There is a lot of story material in this and a rich history. It may be necessary to avoid references to communism, though.

Ancient Romans and Greeks
Furry philosophers and circuses with fursuiters! All roads lead to Eurofurence of course. :p

Down Under has my vote although that theme has very recently been done at FC in San Jose.

My favorite though, and I've been trying to promote that idea for a while already, is space/science fiction. I'm not even a huge fan of it, but so many things could be done with that theme! It fits very well for both cartoony fun and more serious, adult stories. I myself LOVE retro science fiction/space posters and cheesy costumes.

Russia would be my least favorite, as much as I like it, there are quite a few Russian attendes (several friends of mine) and I would not want to insult them with my awful stereotypical jokes :P

That being said, I love the con no matter the theme, at my first EF horror was the theme which is something I definitely don't like... still I enjoyed the theming and the pawpetshow a lot! Also, I already have many stupid ideas for props that will fit next year's theme! ;)

 :o Egads, bit early isn't it? I haven't even digested THIS year's EF, let alone am I capable of thinking about next year's EF. EF19? My mind can't even begin to process that.

I need a vacation *lol*

Well Pinky, the earlier we decide for next year's EF theme and such, the better and more organised will be, right? :P

Also, what about "Prehistory" as a theme? :o
Give a chance to reptiles too :3

And "Medieval Age"
Good for the draggies :P

Medieval was the theme of EF 11 already so it can't be that.

I vote for a nordic theme.

For a couple of reasons, last-but-not-least: my favorite fursuiter at the EF 17 was 'Oddity' from Sweden (a white tomcat).
