I took 7 to AB (fit in carry-on luggage, heh) although some were AU outfit variations of the same characters... That's probably the upper limit but it depends on how many panels/shoots I'm in.
current rotation: Sweden, England, Guts, Tony Stark, Netherlands, Blackwall, Nephrite, Aragorn, McCree
future stuff: Genjyo Sanzo, Wolverine, Saionji Kyoichi, Tatewaki Kuno, Nakago, Auron, Dorian, Hawke (rogue)
past stuff: a lot

I take a different costume for each day of the con. So I have different sized suitcases depending on how long the con is XD

normally no more then 2. we tend to carpool to cons so its usually more of a 'what can we wedge in here without crushing everyone on this 45min-2hr ride?' kinda thing.

I average about 5 costumes a convention. Sometimes more it depends on where I'm traveling or how big each costume is. ^_^

lol only one. Sometimes I bring civilian clothing, but lately I haven't been doing that
When/if I get my second cosplay done, then I'll be able to bring 2 xD That will be exciting

It's a pirate's life for me! Savvy?

Usually just two anymore - one for Friday, one for Saturday. Sometimes I only bring one and wear it both days. I've worn a costume on Sunday a few times before, but prefer not to. I've also done the costume switching thing mid-day once and that was such a huge pain! It was necessary that day, but I won't do that again if I can help it, unless the costume I change into is a comfortable one I can change into quickly. It normally just takes too long to get into costume. I don't now how people ever wear 5+ costumes in one weekend.
Upcoming Costume List:
Barnaby Brooks Jr. (hero suit) - Tiger & Bunny - 100%
Lux (classic skin) - League of Legends - 10%
Link - A Link Between Worlds - 90%

Usually just two costumes. Sundays are rarely worth cosplaying since you have to pack up and get everything out of the hotel room. Most I've ever brought to a 3 day con was 3 cosplays and some things for the rave. Most of my costumes have a lot of stuff and I already get made fun of for my luggage, so I can't imagine bringing more.

Still debating how many I'm going to bring to Dragon *Con, since it is my first time going there.
Possible cosplays:
Tier 2 rogue (WoW)
Red (Transistor) - ?
Nene (Bubblegum Crisis) -eventually?

2015 Cons:

Usually just one because I used to only go one day of a con. Now that I've decided to go full weekends, I'm planning for two or three. Part of that is because the cosplays I chose have overlaps in attire (namely, blue t-shirt, black pants and black shoes) so I don't have to carry as much in general and that I can change cosplays on the fly depending on the situation.
