Let's have a thread of your plans for the next year!
What I have set up for next year. Though, I might add more? Not sure since Astrologian will take up most of my free time.
I've never cosplayed before but i want to get into it in 2016 so figured I'd try simpler things and work on Poe over the course of the year.
This is all I have planned so far. Still have to decide what else to do at all these cons.
my max number of outfits. I'm gonna try not to change what I'm doing when now. RIP.
These are the only finalized ones, I still have a few slots open that need to be filled.
>Mfw it'll be my first time working with body paint
I'll probably only finish like half of these, who am I kidding
I tried making an image for this but then I realized I only have one cosplay planned for 2016 so far... shit. Last year I was constantly adding characters to my "To Cosplay" list, a list I seem to have lost...
Let's see how badly I deviate from the schedule this year. I can never seem to stick with the plan.
DoC Yuffie is the best flavor of Yuffie. Good luck with this, Anon!
Save me from Idols
some of them are started already, ones on the top I'm for sure doing, ones on the bottom I'll do a few but I haven't decided which yet (also depending on what friends want to do)
Just the ones I'm planning right away. I'm sure more will come. Theres a couple disney princess on my list too. My most ambitious is the Chii, which I'll admit I'm kind of half commissioning (commissioning a friend but I'm going to help her to cut down on the time)
I've already started knitting my Frisk Sweater, and I've got the stuff for my Han Solo.
idk my con schedual yet. Still figuring that out other then magfest. Here's the stuff I'm mostly working on as of now. Stuff always changes.
Idols + LoL are like my life blood, I also really want to cosplay Iori too!
( I'm a taurus and iori is like the only idol born in may a day after me <3 <3)
And christmas honk is so cute with her little braids and bear hat !!
I didn't put it on but I'm also plan to remake my Zyra, it got slightly trashed after wearing it to the worlds quarterfinals when it was in london.
>but Macross Delta isn't out yet
Please sempai, I know my elemental weakness, and it's Kawamori idol mecha onee-sans.
I'm also a sucker for pink gingham, which is why I picked it haha, and yes Cure Marine IS best precure
Yes do some Idolm@ster too!
Haha just like me. Idols and LoL is what I feast on. Me and a friend will do the Dragon trainer Lulu and Tristana together, so we can switch cosplays with each other
A+ taste anon. I wish you luck in all of your projects!!
Just a general idea thus far, subject to change.
I have more ideas/ more im@s but these are all of the ones that done/currently working on.
This year, I don't have much planned for next year aside from Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplay, including a few re-wears from this year. Since the wigs are the hardest parts of the Shun and Crow cosplays, I figured their riding outfits would be easy enough if I can find the right purple material for Shun.
Queen Serenity will be if I have time to style the wig before Acen, but I have two more YGO wigs to style for our 5D's group, so it's not looking likely.
hey fellow midwest con gull
Here's my lineup for 2016. Guess what's getting all the money and energy and is going to be worn to just about every convention all year?
I'm... trying to pick just one. I didn't realize people make so many costumes.
>tfw no sill
>tfw no alice
>tfw no hestia
>tfw no sion
The only cons I'm 100% confirmed for are ALA and Sakuracon since I'm trying to move to San Diego in 2016. If I don't I'll still be hitting a lot of Cali cons, it just really depends on if it lands around my projected move date.
In the order of most sure of to not-so-sure to FOREVER WAITING FOR FATLUS. A lot more of my time will be spent on making costumes for other people.
Some cosplays are almost finished but will debut in 2016.
I'm looking forward to this year, with LL my bias is usually Nico but I'm actually pretty excited to try out Honoka!! Nana I'll probably wear while doing AA since she kinda ties in with my artist name, I don't know what outfits though... I really like the space outfit (the one I included) but I also really love her new SS one, and I'd loooove to be her in the Shine!! outfits despite the fact that she doesn't wear it at all in canon... It might help recognisability though.
I made a few too many group commitments, all specifically in the first few months of the year. Hopefully I survive. Praying to finish everything. I already started on Kayano and Mutsuki, so that's a plus.
Oops, not sure why the image is so large. My bad.
Wow, we have really similar taste! 1/2 Prince, Shirayukihime, OPM, Soma, CROWDS, and Kamichama Karin are all series I love!
Franziska and CCS, I love you too anon.
I might not do Sakura, as much as I want to, because I still have to finish Muffet and actually start Jack.
it's a lot but 9-10 a year is normal for me and since i'll be out of school im hoping the extra time will make it possible
i'm really indecisive so i'm making it my goal to do cosplays i've been pushing back constantly for years but we'll see. trying to do more masked cosplays because it makes it easier to do a switch halfway through the day.
please post progress pics of the MH armor when you do it, anon! It looks so cool.
Most of these are for groups and I have a feeling my plans will change so much. I might add a Sakizou dress to the mix if I feel I have enough time/skill/money.
Everyone's plans are so cool! Good luck for the New Year all of you.
I dont know how on Earth some of you do more than 5 cosplays a year. I mean it depends on the difficulty and all, but good on you. I tend to make costumes very slowly due to a combination of being poor and being lazy.
Not a lot of cons planned for 2016. Focusing mainly on saving for a trip to Japan with friends in the Fall, and I'm also trying to get a little more into lolita.
the OC's will probably be from whatever I have already
I didn't complete any of my cosplays from 2015, so here's to hoping I actually get off my butt and find motivation.
Well for starters the UK cons you're going to are notorious for being some of the worst, kappa.
Try LSCC in feb, kitacon, amecon for actual good con experiences. Also, if you're going to go to any MCM you have to go to MCM london.
Not Camilla-anon, but Im planning now to cosplay one of the characters because Im going to play the game when it comes out. When I play I might change my mind on a character, but it's fun to sit around and think of what character you'll look best as, or which one has your favorite design.
(for the record, I personally dont like when people cosplay from series they havent played/watched, but there's nothing indicating this anon wont play the game.)
Just some general ideas. Some of these I know I'll do for sure but other's I might have to take out.
I am eager to see some really good Muffet cosplays this year. I am reaaally sick of those typical 'I just paint my face pale and draw some eyes around my forehead and some shity wig and HOOOI LOOK AT MY COSPLAY'
I know, I really want to go to kita and LSCC but none of my friends are willing to come with me for kita and I live in the north and just can't afford to go to many cons in London. I'll have to check Amecon out though, thank you!
I only have two confirmed cons so far, but I really want to go to some more this year sonce I'll have more disposable income
Good luck on Muffet, anons! I wanted to cosplay her but my fucked up vision makes her makeup almost impossible for me
10/10 taste, anon. I hope you can get Strange Juice done!
>Tsubaki and Yukako
Anon you are wonderful
And plans just got changed around a bit since I got confirmation I can go to two more cons (wasnt sure about rooms until today)
Now the work in front of me seems rather daunting, but I think I can get them done in time for their respective conventions.
I'm not sure how much I'll actually be able to get through, and 2B's still veeeeeeeery tentative but everythings going to be fun to make!
I'm loving all the IM@S plans I'm seeing, hopefully it takes off a little more and there will be groups or meetups at cons!
Technically I've done Harold and Kirika before, but the cosplays need a lot of repair and fixing to make them look better. There's others I also want to do, such as Luna from Sailor Moon, but I highly doubt that's going to happen.
I think I'm closing in on 3 years now? I have all the shit to make it and half of it done. I'm just lacking motivation since I don't have other Street Fighter folk to cosplay with and I really prefer doing things in groups/with a partner.
Sorry for the messy collage, I'm not very good at handling tablet apps! I'm hoping to get at least most of these done but I feel like my plans are going to change along the way. Good luck to everyone with their costumes in 2016! Maybe you'll finally get to make the costume you've been wanting to make for years!
Were you the other Nana anon from the Idol thread? if so i say go for the space outfit!
You could've been me anon, Iori is my fav girl, I want to cosplay Kurumi and I did cosplay Ellie this year!
YES! News reporter!
So many awesome LoL skins and champs, also Elin?? I love you! AND I want to make the angel counterpart of that Sakizou devil
Big YES for Roxanne anon!
Good luch on that Yurika dress, Would love the see it when it's done!
Haha yep, I'm the other Nana! I've spent the past couple of days looking into EL wire stuff and figured out how to go about getting her top and ears to light up so I'm feeling pretty confident about going ahead with the space outfit~
I get like 1.5 cosplays done a year usually, and knowing 2016 is going to be pretty hectic for me, it's probably going to be rewear year this year. Might do some YowaPeda since I have the Hakone biking uniform already, but I have no idea who I want to do.
I had originally planned a different set of costumes to make for 2016 but time and money near the end of the last year was tough so I'm gonna focus on some simpler stuff with one super complex outfit instead~ Also finish stuff that's just on the verge of being done!
Got the other stuff done finally and I can't wait to debut them soon but I'm gonna work so hard to get the P5 shit done before I meet Lotus Juice, I might do a Diamond photoshoot at Sakura with my friend as Haruichi and I hope to see others cosplaying it there.
Only doing one cosplay this year so no need for the template: Astrid from HTTYD2, for C2E2.
So glad to see this is still getting love. I have Ridley on my To Do list.
I asked in another thread but I'll shoot again here, how would you feel about a Grammar nazi ?
I'm hoping to get a few more done also but they're only maybes.
Sheesh yeah, I don't have a JoJo problem. Also the ones with red question marks are maybes. There will probably be more.
I pretty much plan out my entire year with cosplay but 65% sure some of these will be dropped or replaced with something else.
I know for sure I'm definitely going to those three cons this year but I always wind up going to more if I have time/money.
I'll probably have more happening through out the year and rewears of old costumes but these are the only ones for definite.
Really excited to do silver (absolute zero).
We will see about ryze.
mostly for the next two cons, haven't planned many since it's so far in advance
Making all but the Vampire Girl dress. Hoping to have both Takane outfits by ALA
I'll be doing a lot of couple cosplaying or group cosplay this year I think. I also considered doing some Osomatsu-san cosplay but it's so early in the year so I'm not sure what else I will have planned other than this.
Revised it a bit. Might still do Rui and Tsukasa. But they were replaced.
I have the helmet done but the armor is gonna take all summer so I might just make a generic wasteland suit for Momo and carry the helmet or wear it half way.
So many idol cosplays in this thread
Nice choice for Neiro! Kaiba makes me cry errytime.
Probably not in time for AN, it would probably be way too warm for it anyway. If I attend Fan Expo I'll probably make it and fix a few things since I'm still rough with armor making.
Also, great taste. Oyari Ashito has some amazing art. I wouldn't mind some of his (non-lewd) figures.
Gonna be my first cosplay, not sure how I'm going to make the mask
otaku culture isn't huge in Switzerland and I don't have much time, so I'll only go to one convention.
Sorry I'm boring.
>tfw so many Tatsumaki's in the thread
Thinking about working on either Genos or Daryl first. Probably end up going as Kuroko for MAGfest.
These and maybe a few others are on my list and hopefully ill make them before 2017
I'm new to the Cosplay scene, so I don't have much time or skill to make multiple costumes, but these are the main 3 that I have in mind.
I've never made armor before, so I'm excited to start working on Undyne once the weather is a little bit nicer!
I hope to see your Harvest Hanayo when it's done! I love that card, and I kind of want to do it one day too.
>inb4 Tsukimi Kurashita takes 0 effort
Yeah, yeah, I know...but I love what she stands for. She's beautiful even when she doesn't try.
Plust I'll be making 30+ handmade jellyfish to give out to people so that makes up for the "no effort needed" cosplay.
Making this made me realize that i really enjoy blonde haired characters but ive decided that i wanna start seriously cosplaying this year and with traveling to the uk this summer i wanna hit up a con there
