It's that time of year again, the time to figure out what cons to go to and what you'll be cosplaying- So, what do you guys plan to do? Are you ready for next year?

My cosplay plans:

-Klaus (Story of Seasons)
-White Joker (Alice in the Country of Hearts)
-Wizard (HM: Animal Parade)
-Madoka Kaname (Madoka Magica)
-Joker (Black Butler)

Note: It does look like a lot, but there might be the chance I don't wear a costume at all. But these are ones I'd like to bring.

Now, what about you guys? What are your cosplay plans?

I've got a few planned, not really sure of the days yet.

Ren (RWBY)
Vaati (LoZ Minish Cap)
Cloud (FFVII Crisis Core)
Zexion (Kingdom Hearts)

Gonna be my first, so I may or may not die of heatstroke. If you see any of the above in bad condition, that's me. Hi.

I'll be in artist alley most of the weekend at metrocon, but these are what I planned to bring

Totoro-My Neighbor Totoro
Madam Red-Kuroshitsuji
Asuramaru-Owari no Seraph
Ritsuka Tachibana-Dance with Devils(if it gets done)

I think this year at Metro I will be Harley Quinn ( SS ), Sebastian Michaelis, and either Kylo Ren or General Hux. Can't decide!

Debuting Genderbent!Saitama (One Punch Man) and returning probably Ryuko (Kill la Kill)? Not 100% on the second, but definitely Saitama.

I will flip out if I see you as Wizard! He is my ultimate love.

D: Sadly, I'll be putting him on hold. I'm hoping though to put together some type of Harvest Moon shoot so maybe someone will cosplay him. I remember seeing pictures of someone's Chase and Julius and being so jealous! Crossing my fingers that I'll really get to be Klaus though!

#7 SirWonderusMary on 2 years ago

Updated cosplay plans:
-White Joker (Alice in the country of hearts)
-Madoka Kaname (Madoka Magica)
-Loftwing (Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)
-Klaus (Story of Seasons)
-Kakashi Hatake (Gaiden Version)
-Obi (Snow white with the Red Hair) (Maybe)

The only cosplays I have planned are Carlos the Scientist from Welcome to Night Vale. I have two versions - casual and formal. Really hoping I can find some other Night Valiens since this will be my first time cosplaying and first convention!

I wish I could put something else together but I'm short on skills and ideas...

I hope you'll enjoy your first convention! I promise that it's going to be a fun experience! Don't stress about not being able to cosplay more than 1-2 characters. You don't need to cosplay to enjoy the experience. ^^ I've cosplayed as Cecil over in Metro and I can say you'll definitely find someone who knows it or is cosplaying from it. Jack and Kelly might have a panel for it, so definitely head there and you're bound to find many cosplayers from it if they host a panel this year for it.

Here is my Cecil: [URL="https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10568987_788158474562748_5054642218325797274_n.png?oh=1c674c8a93b97a64442feb410fb31291&oe=577F877E"]https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10568987_788158474562748_5054642218325797274_n.png?oh=1c674c8a93b97a64442feb410fb31291&oe=577F877E[/URL]

Thank you for that, I really appreciate it. I love Parle Productions, so will definitely be at those panels! They are actually the ones who introduced me to WTNV, although I think I've since passed Jack and Kelly up on the episodes. ;)

Aw, nice Cecil! Love the cat ears. :)

I plan on being Penny from RWBY at this year's Metrocon. It's my only functional cosplay as of right now. My other 3 are all broken and need new pieces. >-<

#12 Tongithy on 2 years ago

I'm working on Juane from RWBY. If I can figure out armor I'm thinking of Asgore from undertale too.

Ooooo What are you planning on making the armour out of?

#14 Tongithy on 2 years ago

[QUOTE=LlGHTZ;5020578]Ooooo What are you planning on making the armour out of?[/QUOTE]

With Juane I'm using craft foam and Worbla. Not sure how I will paint it yet. I'm figuring it out as I go lol. I also bought a Wonderflex sheet to experiment. Thermoplastics

Juane's my test case, if that goes well I'll likely make Asgore with the same materials.

Do you have any preferred armor materials?

#15 ilafatyu on 2 years ago

Yeahhhh RWBY people.

I've never made armor from anything but foam, so good luck to ya.
