A lot of my friends also have extensive "future cosplays" lists, but I myself have a pretty small list. If I had endless income, my list would probably be longer, but when deciding what I'm interested in cosplaying, my potential ideas immediately go through a "Is it worth it?" test before I get attached to the idea of making them happen, haha. So the few that are on my list are ones that I feel are worth the cost, time, effort, and headache see through to the end. In other words, I have to want to make them REALLY REALLY badly. (I'm also a penny pincher who feels the pain of spending even when it's on things I really want, so this plays a huge role in my decision-making.)
Upcoming Costume List:
Barnaby Brooks Jr. (hero suit) - Tiger & Bunny - 100%
Lux (classic skin) - League of Legends - 10%
Link - A Link Between Worlds - 90%

Sometimes I get like that but I snap back to reality after looking closely at some of the details such as intricate frills or having to wear a mascot suit and decide it's not really worth the money and/or effort.

It just means that you will never be stuck for what to cosplay! It doesnt necessarily you're breaking the bank by cranking out cosplays constantly, so I wouldn't see it as a bad thing unless you start and then get bored with what you're doing.

Nothing wrong with having a huge list of people you want to cosplay at all.
I have a sizable list of future cosplays but I always sit back and think about things like if I can re-use wigs, costume difficulty, how much I like the show/character and such before adding the character to my list.
I also drop characters when I'm no longer as in love with their show/game.

Oh, don't worry. I have the SAME problem as you. In fact, my list consists of 95 cosplays so far and so far I only have 2 down while the other ones wait for me to remember to do them again. And then it grows when I watch a new series.

But no big deal.

The problem lies in you wanting to actually do the cosplay immediately, therefore spending money constantly on items for fabric or commissions. See, this isn't a problem if say you live with your parents or work- The problem is when you neglect bills and the need to buy important things before thinking of the cosplay.

But remember you are not alone with this idea, and as long as you don't put yourself in harms way you are good.
Convention List:
-Metrocon 2016
-AWA 2016
-Holiday Matsuri 2016
Cosplay List:
-Joker (Alice in the Country of Hearts)
-Klaus (Story of Seasons)
-Madoka (Madoka Magica)

I'm pretty sure I have over a hundred cosplays I eventually want to do, and that's just under my Facebook folder for future cosplays. (But it's in horrible need for an update)

I kind of like it- like a couple of people have said, I'm never stuck for plans xD If I want to do anything, all I have to do is go back and look through the list to decide what to do.

I am currently in the middle of the syndrome. But I cannot sew well, so I do not really have the option of sewing a tone of stuff at once.

I have more than 30 future cosplays on my "To Cosplay" list and several more in mind that I am going to add (the list somehow manages to grow everyday).

I'm not sure, but I think that means I can consider myself part of this

Yes and no... I WANT to cosplay everything, but I'm trying to keep my list down to the next one or two costumes I want to make, as opposed to the next 50. It helps that there aren't many events in the area to cosplay for, so my next event is Halloween, then Comiccon in May... But I still get the urge whenever I see a neat character design or really awesome cosplay I say "I need to try that!!"

You mean how I want to cosplay most of the cast of Touhou?
I seriously have to force myself to only think about a few costumes this summer and not let my mind wander.
Why do I even bother to keep track of these things? they are constantly changing
