My group will return to roam the halls as Harry Potter characters: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Professor McGonagall, and the Portrait of the Fat Lady.

We're working on a Doctor Who group with a (scaled-down) TARDIS, weeping angel, Roman Rory, older Amy Pond (The Girl Who Waited version), and the 11th Doctor.

I doubt I'll have much time to work on it (let alone finish by next May) but I want a Steampunk version of mourning Queen Victoria.
Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story.

I usually attend small cons. But I'll be making a change for A-Kon 25. This con will be so big I'll bet I'll be able to find someone cosplaying as Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin. So I plan to bring along my costume of Makoto Shishio. The times in the past when people took pictures of me posing with a Kenshin cosplyer... I was never able to get a hold of those pictures. Maybe my bad luck will change at A-Kon 25.

So far, I think we have it planned out that my group is doing...
Sango (demon slayer version), Kagome, InuYasha, Sesshomaru, and Rin for our larger group.
Kushina and Minato... (my husband and me.), Kurenai and Asuma... And then Hinata.
Madara Uchiha, Tobirama Senju, and Hashirama Senju.
Then Eren, Mikasa, and Hanji (Attack on Titan).

These are likely to change around a few times, as they already have, but our possibilities are limited otherwise.
Maybes for the Group:
Kimimaro (full working bone blades)
Temari (including 9 ft spanned fan)
Kankuro (puppet included)
Gaara (gourd that actually emits something resembling sand, without scattering it)
BB (Death Note)
Light Yagami (Death Note)
L Lawliet (Death Note)

If you do it, I can't wait! We should be dressed in the Attack on Titan style as Eren and Mikasa too. Good luck! =D

Next year will be my first time going to all three days of A-kon and my friend's first ever con. So far we've come up with a few ideas of what to cosplay. We're trying to get together a group to do the Princesses from MLP:FIM (I'm doing Luna and Amy's leaning toward Cadence) and we might do Mizuki and Hiruko from Yumekui Kenbun. I really want to because this would be fun to dress up in Taisho-era kitsuke as Mizuki but it all hinges on whether Amy ends up liking the series enough to do Hiruko with me. I know that by myself no one would get it. We thought of maybe doing xxxholic for the other day but I think Yuuko's kimono would be too ambitious a project for my first time! At least there's still time to think about it.
Princess Luna gijinka (MLP)
Agatha of Woods Beyond Ball Gown (The School for Good and Evil)
TARDIS (Doctor Who)

Up for consideration:
Kimono version of Elsa's ice dress (Frozen)
The 'Patchwork' girl from "Beautiful People" by Mitsukazu Mihara
Pre-bite Ginger Fitzgerald (Ginger Snaps)

I'll probably wear America again at A-kon since I just finished it. As far as new cosplays go, I'm not entirely sure yet, but I've recently become interested in doing Black Japan from Hetalia. I love military uniforms so much.

China - Hetalia - Friday
Black Japan - Hetalia - Saturday
America - Hetalia - Saturday night and Sunday

Possible Future Cosplays:
Russia (Hetalia), Kuroh Yatogami (Project K), Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist), Aladdin (Magi), Toph Beifong (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Terezi Pyrope (Homestuck), Red (Pokemon), Loki

I'm in love with that staircase there, so I will be making Garnet's princess dress from FFIX. =) No clue beyond that! I know I want to get some groups or pairs though, so I'm going to need my friends and everyone to throw ideas my way.

I'm glad I'm not the only one already prepping for next year. I always love to plan WAY ahead so that I have stuff to do and costumes to work on until the con actually rolls around.

So far for A-KON 25 all I have planned is Neon Strike Vi from League of Legends, and Sakura Kasugano from Street Fighter.

I haven't decided on what I'll do for the other two days, but I do have plenty of time to think, don't I?

Hex Maniac - 35%
Shadow Peach - 0%
Spiritmaster Edea - 0%

A-KON 25 Lineup:

Friday - Spiritmaster Edea
Saturday - Shadow Peach
Sunday - Hex Maniac

Yay!! This will be my 3rd A-Kon! I'm very excited and ready to start on costumes, since I waited too late last year. DX I'm very undecided about what costumes to make at this point though. But I really want to cosplay as more Hetalia characters next year - 2p!Italy, Finland (I just need a Sweden), male!Belarus, Norway, and Russia. I will also have an Attack on Titan cosplay group!! :3 I'm going to be the Levi of the group!

If I go, I'm currently planning on Angel Panty. There could be more costumes, but I don't know yet.
Every time I open the fridge, the hole in my jello glares at me.

Thank you for completely removing my signature without emailing me that it was too long.

If you do that, then my Angel Stocking will have to make a third run at A-kon! I love wearing that costume, so I would definitely do it again^^

I plan on bringing OoT Zelda next year. I was so sad I missed my chance to get photos of it there this year, the Anatole has so many great places for pictures. My friends and I have talked about cosplaying together as the Oracles again at some point next year, so hopefully I'll bringing my Nayru back with my Din and Farore. :3

Other than that, I'll probably wear Riza Hawkeye on Thursday, and I'm hoping to have my Pokemon trainer Leaf done in time. If I don't I'll probably wear Claire from Harvest Moon instead.
2015 Cons: All-Con - DCC - A-Kon - AFest - Fan Days - ANT
Working on: "Ishval" Riza
Planning: Visas Marr | Four Swords Zelda remake | Princess Hilda | TP Zelda | Jarael
