How far ahead do you plan?
Post By Tails. 23/09/09, 03:39 pm

I've been noticing a lot of groups forming for Armageddons the following year when the one this year hasn't even happened yet!

So how far in advance have you planned a cosplay & actually done it?

I plan ahead lots, I confirm when it's the next event on the list. Unless it's like a special group with friends.

I make loose plans up to a year ahead, but never finalise until about 6 months before the con - at which stage I generally stick to what I've chosen (unless circumstances/procrastination mean I'm unable to complete it on time and have to change my plans. *sulks over Rosso*)

I generally find it a bit silly planning stuff two years in advance though - how do you know you're even gunna still like the series in a year's time, let alone two? o_O

I was trying to get all my stuff confirmed early for next year since most of my costumes next year need to be made and will take a while, especially around my subjects

Hm. never used to plan ahead, until this year, when I just brought practically all the fabric Im ever going to need for next years or twos planned cosplays.

Future me-broke and frequently starving university me-will thank me.

Hmm... I have a lot of costumes on my 'to do' list, and I try to pick one or two for each convention - but in reality, my costumes have all been done in the month before - and they're almost never the ones I had originally planned anyway!

I really wish I would get more organised and not rush everything last minute.... perhaps I should start planning for Wellington next year now? :think:

I plan about a year (sometimes two!) in advance, but I often end up changing my plans up to a month before the event |D /failspace. i procrastinate and run out of time or just lose interest~

Post By Mandie_Chan. 24/09/09, 04:24 am

um... I plan as far as I can think of cosplays.

If I can't think of any I'd LOVE to do then I don't think that far ahead.
I think i have Chch 2010 booked up... but I wasn't thinking at the time 'MUST HAVE COSPLAYS READY' it was more 'I'd love to do this outfit for a competition/for fun. I have space here, lets do it!'

I usually don't join groups... just because people tend to pull out last minute.

I think about the next year after the Armageddon each year, but I generally don't
'do' anything until the summer holidays.

I have a large list of cosplays I want to do, it's just a matter of finding people to do them with and when something like that comes up, I generally plan for it.

That said, I've got like almost all of next year's cosplays planned out

I make a point of never planning too far ahead.
Because I know I'll just change my mind/find something more interesting in the meanwhile.

I think 4 months ahead is my normal THIS IS WHAT I'M DOING stage.

I have a long list of cosplays I want to do, but not necessarily the time at which I want do to them...I have a pregnant costume all lined up, lol. That one can probably wait, though...

^THIS. ;D

But... I like to cause myself pain by staring at amazing costumes ages before I'll be able to make them. ;A;

I'll plan doing a character a year ahead but if they have more than one costume, chances are I've found a reason (generally procrastination from a large assingment) to make 2-3 of them way before the event which leaves me not knowing what version to wear

With groups, if I was planning on doing that character regardless of the group, I'll make the cosplay even if the group dispands.Heroes stand alone! LOL.

This is the first time I've planned so far a head. Mainly it's so I can start early and avoid the mad rush sewing... will probably end up procrastinating though. ;A;
