I only have one cosplay at the moment so I could only wear 1 cosplay at the time, for all the cons that I went to. When I get more cosplays I would probably bring 2 or 3 at max. Haha I would probably wear one cosplay the most. I don't want to change into other cosplays because some people may wonder where that one character was, on that one day. Turns out that person went into a different cosplay.

usually two to three for me I would bring to a con. But I also make my sisters' cosplays from time to time, so I work on multiple cosplays sometimes. :3

@___@ Whoa, people. Usually the cons around here are 2 days (Sat-Sun) so I only bring one costume. Though this year I *might* bring different costumes for each day, depending on my money situation. But I prefer wearing just one costume because there aren't that many cons in my country, and they're all scattered around so I can't really visit more than one - two (being a poor student without a car and all that). I like to use my costumes as much as I can, or else I feel like I only wasted money on something I'm only wearing for a day or two.

For me, 1 per day. I don't understand the people who change three times a day. I'm paying to get into a convention and have fun walking around and meet new people. I don't want to spend half the day changing costumes. I will bring a change of clothes for the rave, but not a costume. Usually just some brightly colored street-clothes.

In a perfect scenario I would love to wear at least two per con day.

But since I never have room for that many, and my cosplays usually consist of props and whatever else in addition to the clothing/fabric itself now, and putting on costume makeup multiple times at one con is a serious pain and I usually want want to look around the dealer hall.booths at least once...three per con at most.

It depends on how many days the con is but nowadays I do often bring a different cosplay (or different version of the same character) for every day. So if it's a 2-day con I'll bring two costumes, 3-day con three costumes etc. I often have the most fancy cosplay on the con's main day and a "chill cosplay" on Sunday though.

I've brought anywhere from 3 - 7 costumes to a convention. I generally try to keep it to no more than 5, though.

I usually do one per day ( usually 4 ), and not change, but I have discovered that changing cosplays in a day isnt as crazy as I thought. AX I brought 4, but i changed all around XD ( but that was mostly due to being in a Giant Wedding dress, or my costume was falling apart.

Fanime though, is a new experience XD I'm bringing probably 6-7 costumes. but luckily, its not like I'm going to be changing all around all the time. Ones a bathing suit for the Pool, and I guess theoretically a few could be my black and white ball dress.

I usually bring about 4. 3 cosplays and 1 rave outfit. That way I have something to change into when I start getting uncomfortable or if something breaks/rips/spills onto my cosplay. I sometimes bring a change of normal clothes too, but I've got a couple cosplays that look 'normal' enough to wear out so I've just started packing one of those instead.

I had two for AX last year, but this year I'm planning to bring three to Fanime and AX. Holding off on debuting Sebastian until PMX perhaps and hopefully debuting Stocking at ALA...I'm thinking beyond that I'll be good with five costumes unless something really catches my eye

I usually take about four per con. Though a few years back I took five and ended up doing four of them on the Saturday of the con (one wasn't originally planned for that day, but since we won a cosplay award we went to the masquerade to accept it in costume). Though if you want to get technical, since I'm the seamstress for my group, if I've made new costumes for friends, I bring those too, so I think my record for carrying costumes was like nine or ten. If I went to cons that were longer than three days, who knows what kind of antics I could get up to.

Let me break it down:
Elaborate (with lots of accessories, wig pieces, or makeup that takes all day?): 2 at most and I wear these from 10/11am to at least 4 or 6pm. Unless I have plans/have to change/etc, then I wear the costume for less time. Usually book a shoot or plan to shoot the costume after con too.

Comfy (can also go under what I wear to Rave/dealers hall):
Usually in the evening, Day 0, or Sunday. Includes a kigurumi. Something that requires little effort/accessories. I usually bring two of these. (One is my new kigurumi)

Rave/concert/dealers hall wear:
Whatever I throw together, could be cosplay or not. Usually booty shorts, flats, tank tops. Stuff that takes little to no room to store.

Total items: 3-4, up to six. I like wardrobe changes and casual clothes. I'm also an epic packer. ;D
