Some plans for 2017!

I could place a bet that even half of these aren't actually going to happen but I will try.

In 2016 I got almost nothing done. I couldn't follow my plans, I didn't even want to look at my sewing machine and when I finally did I cried blood mentally. I could say that everything I made... Pretty much failed (well okay I think that my Italy cosplay was okay).
I would like to change these things in 2017 since I love this hobby very much. The greatest problem here seems to be my attitude ("I'll just fail so why should I even try, seriously?") and luckily I can affect it!

But yes, some plans...

Avalon from StarStable Online.
I'll try to make this druid guy for Yukicon but at the moment I'm facing kind of huge problem - I can't find fabrics for this. Yes, I know, it's just fifty shades of gray but I've only come across way too thin fabrics by far.
I so hope that I'll finish Avalon in time - he's such a cool guy!

Chikane Himemiya from Kannazuki no Miko.
...I don't even know what to say about her anymore. God damn it, I've tried to finish making this priestess costume for almost two years now and I'm STILL stuck with it!! *insert some rage here* My frustration is actually one of the main reasons why I want to make this costume ready... And guess what - I finally came across someone who wants to cosplay Himeko Kurusugawa! <3

Prussia from Hetalia: Axis Powers.
...though I don't know which version of him I want to make. I love Prussia as a character a lot and his outfits are just too cool! I might stick with his most common uniform, but I'd like to cosplay Teutonic Knights!Prussia too. Decisions, decisions.

Yang Jinghua from Ling Qi.
I watched this Chinese anime quite recently and I fell for this character in no time. Yes, he's quite foolish at times but when he actually takes action... HOLY F*CK. It will be quite interesting to cosplay him alone though (he always protects Duanmu Xi though in this version he's also connected to Duanmu Luoye).
And I just might have started to make stuff for this character already, oops...

Nasu Suketaka Yoichi from Drifters.
I begun to watch Drifters a while ago. When this young man appeared for the first time I practically fell from my chair - this guy is just too awesome.
He's actually based on a real historical character but I don't think that that guy was this... Derp. Because yes, the animated version of him can be a bit silly sometimes but that just brings some happiness and joy to his character!
I'm quite sure that I won't make this cosplay anytime soon though; perhaps in the summer or in the autumn.

Keisuke Sannan from Hakuouki.
I begun to watch Hakuouki quite recently... And when I saw this character it was love at first sight. I just love his personality and design! ;__; This character is also based on a real historical character, Keisuke Yamanami, and that makes this guy even more interesting!
I'm not quite sure when I'm going to make Sannan-san but I really hope that I manage to make it in 2017.
(And this was, once again, one of those "where in seven Hells are your reference pictures?" characters, that's why I chose this pic even though I'm not likely to make that haori. Note: likely.)

There's one more character on my cosplay list but I'll keep it secret yet~ don't worry, it's a character I will definitely make during 2017. I just don't want to tell about it just yet.

But yeah, here are my plans for 2017!
...and I didn't even list my own characters here...

Looks like I'm going to be busy this year! :'DD I really hope that I'll manage make at least some of these costumes - these characters are very dear to me and I want to cosplay each one of them as soon as possible. ;__;
Oh, and the cons that I will definitely attend this year are Yukicon, Tampere Kuplii, Tylycon and Tracon. I think that I'll attend more conventions but those are on the "must attend" list.

See you next time!

  1. I want to wish you look with all these costumes and I hope you'll get some of them done by the end of this year!
    Oh and yeah, I must admit that I'm super excited for you Sannan costume! :D I've been wanting to pick up my Hakuouki cosplays again (been on a break for a while) but it's not as much fun to be a solo shinsengumi...

    Also, thanks for mentioning that Chinese anime! I had no idea about it and the art/design looks interesting enough for me to want to check it out!

    1. Thanks! c:
      Solo cosplaying is hardly ever as fun as pair/group cosplaying... But making Sannan will be one of my priorities this year since I love that character and I'll get to try many new things in that process!

      You're welcome! c: I really recommend checking it out - at first it might seem a bit too derp but after a while it will become more interesting. c:

  2. Seeing Sannan-san on this list really surprised me! I had no idea that you've watched Hakuouki and I'm happy that someone else likes and wants to cosplay him too! He's sadly not a well-liked character overall but I personally found him to be a very interesting one.

    Can't wait to see your Sannan cosplay and what version(s) of Prussia you end up doing, if you do more than one! Good luck! :)

  3. Nice, I'd love to see these done^^ Hakuouki is next on my watchlist and I'm also re-watching Spirit Pact in japanese...:D Oh, I love that anime^^ Right now I'm hooked on Log Horizon though and I'm considering a huge ass armor...:D

    1. I'll definitely make all of these in the future - most of them during 2017, hopefully :'D

      I've thought about re-watching Ling Qi (I didn't actually know that the Japanese version is called Spirit Pact, oops) too - that anime is just pure love. <3

      I haven't watched Log Horizon myself but I googled it and it seems to be very interesting anime - going to put that on my watchlist! :)
