Since everyone keeps making individual threads about who they should cosplay, though I might as well make one big thread for everyone to post who they want to cosplay and ask for suggestions if they're not sure! ACen 2015 seems impossibly far away right now, but it'll sneak up on you quick!

Right now I'm playing with the idea of bringing back my 3 most popular cosplays instead of slaving my life away making new ones. (I usually make 3 new cosplays every year, one for each day.) So that would mean Pachirisu (Pokemon, giant tail bigger than me), Vespiquen (Pokemon, duct tape dress), and Umi Ryuuzaki (Magic Knight Rayearth, final armor version).

But I also really want to cosplay the final version of Ryuho's alter form from s-CRY-ed. Ref 1 Ref 2

Tough decisions! Make might just bring back two of my hits, plus Ryuho. Ryuho is going to be such a pain though, I'll definitely need to order more worbla. But ACen's really far away and there's a ton of new anime coming out between then and now, and I change my mind at the drop of a hat xD

So what're you thinking of cosplaying at the moment?

How would you do Kirara? Like a fursuit, or more like a Pokemon gijinka? Either way, I'd love to see a Kirara <3 I saw a group of Inuyasha women at ACen and the Sango had her baby girl dressed as Kirara and it was just the CUTEST thing.

My goal is to start and finish making Warhammer cosplays for me, my boyfriend's sister and my boyfriend. They'll include a Sisters of Battle (for me), a Death Jester (bf's sister) and some sort of Imperial Guard (bf) hopefully. It's a bit ambitious, but at least the Death Jester has been in the making the last two years haha.

I've been decided on this since before 2014 started. Lol.

I'll finally be doing the secret cosplay I've been planning and sort of working on for about 2 years.
I am also planning to bring back Angewomon this time with wings. ^_^
Might also bring back Sailor Luna because she seemed to be a pretty big hit and was also fairly comfortable to walk around in as long as I don't go crazy and try to walk to McDonald's again. Lol

I'm currently planning (I'm sure it will change a bit by the time next year rolls around though):

Mahiru/Shinya Banba from Akuma no Riddle
Mikan Tsumiki from Super Dangan Ronpa 2
and some idol anime cosplay (either AKB0048 or Love Live)

I might bring back my Phi (Virute's Last Reward) and/or Yukari (Persona 3) cosplays as well.

I was planning on Natsu Dragneel again and doing Male version of Strength from Black Rock Star Shooter. Also this year I want to find someone to get together with to help learn to sew. All I have are people who are lazy or do not like doing it. =(

Planning on having another awesome ACen. Gonna do both of my panels this time (had to cancel them due to not being able to be there the whole weekend) and maybe do a 3rd panel (I have an idea rattling around my head) As for cosplays...well you can see what I have planned in my signature.

I'm leaning towards Cinder, but I always cosplay minor characters or alternate outfits, so no one knows who I am, which is why I thought about Ruby

I'm hoping to revamp my Minako Arisato cosplay from Persona 3. Bringing back Tidus and Misato Katsuragi, and bringing a new cosplay. Either Satsuki from Kill La Kill. [her school uniform of Junketsu] or Utena Tenjou

Annie Leonhardt was a lot of fun to cosplay this year. She's up there with Alois Trancy as "most fun characters I've cosplayed." So I'll be cosplaying her again but maybe a different (multiple?) version. I already started working on a lolita version based on estellecampanella's design. I'm also planning to do the formal gown from Wings of Counterattack. I'm open to hear any other ideas for her be it canon or fanon design.

As for other cosplays, I'm not sure yet. I've done Hetalia at every ACen I've attended so far, so maybe keep that tradition alive.

I don't know that'll I'll be able to make it back next year (out of state conventions are expensive) but my goal for 2015 is to finish my Suzu cosplay from Tales of Phantasia that I wasn't able to get done in time for this year's ACen.

Plans for 2015 for me include Sailor Jupiter (Sailor Moon) and Fujiko Mine (Lupin III).

If I somehow get motivated enough to lose enough weight I might also add Honey or a random 'Boobies girl' from Space Dandy. I couldn't believe I didn't see any of those this year!

To fix my Hayate (from nanoha) costume since I totally failed on making the wing replacements this year and couldn't wear it. Easy cosplay of Kotone from Sakura Trick and maybe one other. Deciding between 4 characters for the third one and not sure what to do.

My fiancee and I will be cosplaying from Toward the Terra/Terra E.

I'll be Physis and my fiancee will be Soldier Blue. We'll likely have our friend joining us as Jomy Marcus Shin.

We'll also have a group from the webcomic A Hundred Days of Night consisting of Hades, Hecate, Thanatos and Persephone.

Since I'll be staffing next year, I highly doubt I'll be able to pull off anything that I want to, so I might dust off my Jigen from Lupin III. I can't even remember the last time I wore it. At least I have time to find that black temp hair spray.

If I go to ACen 2015, I'll definitely be doing my two cosplays I have now.

The first is Maya Kitajima from Glass Mask, specifically her Bianca the Pirate mask. I've been doing this cosplay for going on three years now. It's very simple and no one seems to know what Glass Mask is, but I love it so much. My second cosplay, which I'll be debuting at Anime Midwest this year, is my version of a Castle of Hearts outfit for Alice Liddell from the Alice in the Country of... series. :)

My husband and I are trying to work on our first couple cosplay. Since I'm cosplaying as Maya, he plans to dress as Masumi Hayami, Maya's love interest. We're also working on a Fairy Tail couple cosplay, him being Loke and myself being Lucy Heartfilia. I'm still trying to figure out if I should do an original outfit for Lucy, or if I should try to recreate her main outfit but modify it for my own comfort (namely lengthening the skirt). I'm semi-leaning towards an original outfit. :P
Cosplay Status: Maya Kitajima - Bianca Mask (Pirate Form - 100%; Glass Mask), Lucy Heartfilia (60%; Fairy Tail)
Castle of Hearts Alice Liddell (100%; Kuni no Alice series), Pearl (100%; Steven Universe)

I've been trying to wrap my brain on what to do
Since I only have the time and money to do one Cosplay...I was thinking either...

Ib from Ib.
America from 2p!Italia (Want to do a panel with this guy)
Ratio from Diabolik Lovers.
Fancy (Suit) Clear from DMMD. (I might end up doing this one though)
or Cry, like the Youtuber c:
