Another big hopeful for next year is Bartholomew Kuma from One Piece--here's hoping the heat doesn't build up too much if I manage that one, heat + heavy black outfit = not fun. And finally, third hopeful costume for next year is Big Mac, Applejack's brother from MLP, just to help show that MLP cosplay is still a thing.
This last AN was the first time since making Twilight Sparkle in 2013 that I DIDN'T wear any MLP cosplays to it. Felt pretty weird....

Awesome! I'm soo happy to see this thread lol. Its never too early to plan for the next year. So far, I have plans to cosplay Guzma (Pokemon Sun & Moon) as I didn't finish him for this AN. I also hope to cosplay as Joe Kido (Digimon Adventure Tri.) in a cafe outfit. I may also have another cosplay but I'll have to wait and see.

I'm glad this thread is still going; keeps me motivated ^^b
I'd love to see Joe; he's a funny dude. I might do something from Digimon too

I've been meaning to start something already, but I am too busy to start. I want to at least get the swords going because I won't be able to indoors. I may need to get more foam too. Where does one get foam? Like the craft foam...

If you mean the thin sheets of craft foam? I get mine from Michael's (they have big sheets and big rolls, and while they're the pricier option, they have weekly coupons if you sign up for their email list).
You can also find smaller foam sheets in dollar stores, as well as cheap yoga mats and such for thicker EVA foams (my luck's been mixed with that- mostly I just find little card-sized packs of foam, not sheets).
I've heard Walmart carries the stuff, but I almost never go to Walmart.
I'm not sure if you have Len's Mill in your area, but I've also found foam sheets there. And besides Michael's, all those places will also have things made of EVA foam like the floor-puzzle-piece mats and yoga mats.

Seconding Shinobi, Walmart does have it, but sometimes it may depend on the stock. When I was looking for craft to make Winter Soldier's metal arm, I found small and large packages, both in black and white (assuming you want white, but they do carry black just in case you really do need black). This time when I went to look they only had foam board, and I went to another one they didn't have any.
I also went to DeSerre's and a found a pack of 9 x 12 craft foam, I'm pretty sure they'll have bigger, but I didn't check because I only needed that size. You can check Curry's as well because they're both art stores, they'll both carry it. I recommend Michael's or DeSerre's mostly, even though it's an art store for the most part, they do have a crafts section too so it couldn't hurt to check it out not just for the foam but anything you might need!

And speaking of starting, I actually found something to start with xD
But I'm putting it off because I want to start when Cosplay Matsuri and Fan Expo are finished (if I go). So I won't start until maybe Thanksgiving.

Micheal also sells giant rolls of black and white foam. I recommend a coupon though.

90% certain I will be making Sakizou Ms. Anniversary drawing I think it's from Girl meets Sweets 2 book. She's going to be a lot of work and money. But I want to at least do all my foam casting of icing dollops this summer. lol

The illustration colour is intentionally incomplete so I'm thinking of making the roses light pink to tie in the colours more.

I'll probably do/bring another one based on what I feel like bringing back or if anything peeks my interest mid-year. Kind of want to do Steven Universe Gem....

LED flicker candles. I had a few listing listed but I've to do more searching.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Extensive-Us.../322467395276?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pc-LED-Bat...1424061528 26

My hardest to find items on the list is 30mm pearls or balls. Ping pong balls are 40mm which are too big sadly and the 30mm pearls are both expensive and heavy. lol I'd take anything from 25mm to 30mm for the top row my skirt.

I have almost no idea what to make for 2018, my 2017 cons aren't even done yet! I have four more weeks before my main local con.

My friend wants to do Steven Universe cosplay next year so that may come to AN, depending on how lazy I get between now and then. Otherwise, it's up in the air.

Right now my only for sure plan is Keyblade Wielder Sailor Jupiter as designed by Nijuuko. I have a group for it and so excited!

Potentially doing Andy Biersack, the vocalist for the band Black Veil Brides.

I'm definitely planning to do Konan from Naruto, with the concept outfit and the Akatsuki cloak if i feel motivated enough.
I want to do 2 costumes this year too but I really can't get ahead of myself yet haha

I have been planning my cosplays for the past month already. XD

I'm going to be cosplaying Whitebeard from One Piece, Mavis Vermillion from Fairy Tail and 707 from Mystic Messenger.

I might also be reusing an old cosplay that I have which is Soos from Gravity Falls. Cause he wears a hat, t-shirt and shorts. You know, in case of heat death, wear this XD

Can't wait to get started I see xD
I technically did get started but only because I know for sure I'd like to shuffle my lineup, and I already have stuff I could use as a base xD.
As for the hot weather, yeah that's a good idea. That's why I'm glad I'm going as Kazemon so if it's 30 degrees + I'll be ok. This year wasn't bad, but we'll never know next year.
I myself never really have too much to wear, but I always bring water with me anyways.

Some plans changed and some progress started.

We're still doing the legendary birds (might be a trio still) but not as samurai. We'll be basing the design off of Fire Emblem characters - so more like warriors.

I've started the swords. Mine (zapdos) is based off of a wand and a sword. It's nearly all covered in worbla (love worbla). The moltres will be a flame sword, which is made out of foam right now. My brother has decided that the swords need to light up so he will be doing the LED work. Somehow we will get the fire sword to glow, and somehow have lightning surround the sword. Haven't even touched articuno yet. We will also have a head dress with the head the of legendary birds. It's going to be made out of foam. Not sure how else to make it...
