Does planning count? Cause planning has already started for me, but no actual work has begun yet.

@ Blizzara: Planning does indeed count!

I have been planning for a while for my cosplays and hope to meet up with my friend so we can start sewing soon, because my costume looks like it's gonna take A LOT of my time this year.

I try to make a point of not planning my costumes for Kumori until Sakura's passed.. Since a lot can change in a year.

I am batting around ideas of doing a Ciel. And someone else from the Tales of series, not just Richea.

I'm also looking into how to fix Richea's skirt so it puffs out properly, getting her crown done and getting some good tights for under the petticoat. After that, I'm looking at working on my kid Link costume and seeing if I can finally get enough bravery mustered up to sew the box pleated skirt for Yuna @.@ Dang math + expensive lace.

Aaaaand if that's not enough, I'm going to be looking into doing Aram. I have most to all of the satin needed for his costume I think. But nothing for the trim yet. No space to work either, and I still have to cut out and measure the patterns properly. How I wish I had a dress form x.x; And you know, room for it.

I just realized I have to severely alter the patterns for Aram so I might end up barely using them... *sighs*

I think my plan was Tifa from the original FFVII, Penelo from FFXII, and then something else, but I'm not sure I remember what.

Either way, I'm with vereca. I don't think I'll be working on anything for Kumo until after Sak is taken care of.

LOL Chromo sister....you know what Im gonna do next year.   ;D

I will probably pull out Vash and Wolfwood again but I have a secret cosplay that is going to take a lot of material searching.   ::)  I will slowly reveal who I will be over the year as I put it all together...lets just say the army surplus store will get to know me better.

The planning has begun, assuming I come next year.

I'm for sure doing some Hetalia again, though all new cosplays.  I plan on doing chibi Norway for sure, and maybe the official fem design too.  but who knows what else.
Con plans-
Sat: Okumura Rin(Ao no Exorcist)
Sun: Teuton Prussia(Hetalia)
Mon: Greece(Hetalia) or Rin(AnE)

Well, I don't even know if I'll be attending K-con at all next year but I at least have Sakuracon and possibly a few other cons.

But I need to finish a bunch of stuff for Cure Passion. Thankfully I think Tao's has a few simple fixes. Same goes with Medusa.

Then I also need to decide on a quick comfy cosplay. >_>

The three cosplays that I really want to do is Allen's Clown Crown, Lavi, and Timmothy (all from D Gray Man).

I've started planning on the Clown Crown (This and this.) which is going to take the longest, and I have no clue how I'm going to sew all of that, seeing as how I don't really know how to sew. Hopefully I can cut corners in a few places... I'm looking forward to it though!

I already have everything for Lavi since I was him this year, and Timmothy is pretty easy too, just need to get the wig and a fake jewel or something.

So my next costume is Haruko from FLCL. I am actually kinda close to being done XD I have the pants, boots, scarf, wig, and hopefully the contacts (I can't find them right now and I hope they are at my parent's house). Once I get paid I am going to buy the material for the dress and look for gloves that might work (I really don't want to make them, I hate making gloves). I also need to borrow Chip's goggles.

I haven't even picked my stuff yet.

The first thing that I'd like to do is compile a list of EVERY character that I'd like to cosplay as during my lifetime (and no, I don't believe that 2012 will be the end).  Then, I'll look at the top three for now (which I'm pretty sure Lina Inverse will be on the list).  At that point, I'll be doing what I can to pay for one, and if I can get any others, bonus!
I have a new blog!  It is an anime-themed discussion site.  Please check it out, and share your two cents!

I've started looking for references of William and Aleister Chamber (Druit) for a Black Butler cosplay for next year, which will both be terrible because of lapels and binding. XD
K-con 2012 cosplays so far are..
Black Butler - William (and maybe Trainne!William), Tanaka, Pluto, Count Lord Druitt
CLAMP - TsubasaRC!Chii (maybe), Horitsuba Sakura (unlikely but possible), and Himawari (summer uniform)

Bunny, you should join our DOGS group.

SPEAKING OF WHICH! I got a coat and shirt for Badou today and my tie is in the mail. I need to paint my gun and get my wig in and make an eyepatch, and then bloody up the shirt and I'm done.

Oh right I need to find a belt, too. To eBay!

Richie: when are you planning it for and who do you have already? I haven't read or watched it yet (another for my list >_<). Also, if the person you need has a prop, I am a) hopeless at props and b) have no space to make props. lol. But I really think we should do some kind of cosplay collaboration in the future~

We have some of the main cast, but not all of it. It's definitely worth a read though! The OVAs are pretty good too.
