Cosplay Bucket List
A curiosity of mine!

I think we all have at the very least ONE character or concept that we swear that we WILL do no matter what.

Regardless of money, public opinion, or even weather at the timne of the intended con, we all have a costume we absoloutley must do.

So which is it for you?
Who do you want to cosplay, why do you want to cosplay that person and what are you willing to do for it?

Or maybe you've already done it, completed your Dream cosplay? Tell us all about it!
Have you completed one dream cosplay and moved on to another?

It can be any number of "MUST DO" cosplays, or even just one, but I want to know what the special ones are, and what is it that makes them so special!

One of my must do's was a Gears of War character, as I've always loved the Epic (intended) armour they wear. I was lucky enough to have done Clay Carmine for MCM Expo. So now I've got to think of a new bucket list cosplay

I'm kinda like Kata,

I finished Thane and I felt amazing in him- that Suave Assasin brought me Raphael Sbarge and Kimberly Brooks to sign my phone and a copy of something as well,

But there's always room for improvements and whilst that Cosplay is your dream, you've always got to build on your dreams to make them reality.

So Thane is complete but, he's as some would say " a glass half full" to go.


But as a bucket list goes- there's a couple, one of which I know will earn me my pride. Well...two.

Both Aeons from FFX, Bahamut and Final Aeon Jecht...
;_; eventually I will

My dream cosplay has always pretty much been Raziel from Soul Reaver but upon completing Garrus it's made me want to go into much more complex fields of special FX costuming ^^; To this end not only is Raziel a dream cosplay now so is a animatronically controlled Mordin Solus ^^;

Along with a suit of berserker armour that actively bleeds XD

Everytime I think I've reached a new high with a big project it just seems to push me onto something even more complicated XD

I have one of mine currently on the go.

Lady Loki from Marvel comics.

I plan to wear her for Ayacon 2013 (might be the last convention I can go to in awhile) and it's essentially fur, leather, leather, fur, some more leather, silks, you get the picture.

MADNESS!

Also, Darunia from Legend of Zelda. I want to do him properly, but I don't think I have talent. Although, I have him planned for a Zelda OoT group for May Expo.

I want to get through most of Sakura's battle costumes, but the final episode costume is on the top of my bucket list.

The robe Sakura wears on the chapter 100 artwork for Tsubasa is on there too.

Others include Princess Garnet and Jill Valentine from Resi 5.

I have had 3 cosplays on my list since I started way back when. One of which I managed to do about 2 years ago which was Kuja from FF9. It wasn't great but I loved doing it!

Naturally I want to do the next step which is his Trance version. This I've been planning for YEARS! I mean I have at least one note book full of details on wigs, make-up the lot, its like a proper obsession! So I'm pitching it for October expo. I figure sod it- what's the point of it staying on a list unless you don't have the balls to do it!

The other one would be the Rahxephon mecha. Love the show, love the characters and mostly love the mecha.
Thing about dream cosplays are if you keep them as dreams they're great, but make sure when you do them that you put the utmost into them or you feel a bit fail- did a bit in kuja but won't in trance!

Actually, one that I completely forgot about is I'd love to do a non gijinka Charizard and a Vivi (FF9) but I would want the Vivi to look right so it would be all scaled up and shiz.

Sailor Jupiter. Even before I knew what cosplay was I always wanted to dress up as her

As soon as I started cosplay I always did say I would cosplay her but when I began people were saying that SM costumes were a pain to get to look right and she was one of these projects I'd rather wait until I am ready.

And only last week...I brought the first piece of fabric for her and it my current project for a group for J-CultureCon and some of my friends are cosplaying from the series too so I jumped in right away as soon as I found out ^___^

My other 2 bucket costume ideas are General Beatrix from FF9 and Dark Woods Circus Miku Hatsune. Also Azalyn from Irresponsible Captain Tylor but that should hopefully happen right after Jupiter as the series will be turning 20 very soon so thought it be fun to celebrate that

There are sooo many costumes I'd love to do.
But the one I absolutely must do is Princess Zelda in her Twilight Princess design, but it's gonna take a lot of practice before I make that!

Twilight Princess Link was the other main one, but it was also my first costume and I'm working on a new one now too, so I don't think it really counts XD

Well, my top two dream cosplays would have to be armored!Aqua from Birth by Sleep and Vanille from Final Fantasy XIII...don't ask me when they're going to happen, but they will (eventually)


04 Jun 2012 - 21:5085461
My dream cosplay was always Princess Garnet's white gown. I just wanted to do it for so long. And I finally did it for Kitacon IV! Over 200 hours of embroidery went into it, there were quite a few all-nighters pulled and a lot of frustration over it, but it felt so amazing to finally wear it, like a proper princess (and I decided that if I ever get married, it's going to be my wedding dress. No regrets xD). But I'm definitely not done with it yet!

But I'll hopefully be moving onto my next dream cosplays soon. Merrill's 'Raiments of the Dalish Pariah' romance outfit and Lady Loki. I have never ever worked with armour before but I am so excited to get started! Merrill's outfit is just...amazing. It's so crazily detailed and so so pretty, I really love it. (I've also never seen anyone cosplay it before, sooo yeah xD)

For Lady Loki I'm dead set on making scale armour for it. Not a full body deal, but the top part of her outfit, definitely. Working with more leather (which was what killed me the first time with default Merrill guh) and embroidery, because I love embroidery (: I'm so looking forward to both of them.

We're gonna have a lot of fun with DEM SCALES and DAT LEATHER! lol

My dream cosplay is Drossel Von Flugel from Fireball! I'd love for the eyes to light up and it to be super shiny! But I've no skill in anything but baking (I just made one of my baking bucket list; a Croquembouche or a profiterole tower =P) I don't think there's anything else at the moment =P

That...Is...Awesome...You have to make that!!!!

My absolute dream cosplay is Luca Blight from Suikoden 2 but I'd admit that due to it being armour and me not having a clue (hell, I'm only just getting the hang of sewing XD all I've made so far is a coat) it's probably not going to happen, even getting it commissioned will cost a lot.

Slightly more realistically I'd like to cosplay Lulu from Final Fantasy X. Or one of Leknaat's outfits from the Suikoden series (both of which will be a while in the future though when I know more about what I'm doing )

I'd love to do Fai's main outfit from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle with the tunic, blue coat and overcoat but I really need to get better at making stuff before I attempt it. I'd love to do Subaru from the Tokyo Revelations OVA, even better if I could find someone to be Kamui with me.

I'd like to do some armour cosplays. On the list would be Lunatic from Tiger and Bunny and Teresa of the Faint Smile from Claymore.

I really want to do Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji and couple of pokemon gijinkas like pikatchu (yup, I know, very original xD) but my biggest dream is to probably cosplay everyone from Katekyo Hitman Reborn (even some minor characters xD)
So yeahh.... damn you money and lack of time!


05 Jun 2012 - 21:4985558
Mine would have to be Sam from Gears of war 3.
Simple as really lol, but not when it comes to the plans that I have for it all lol


05 Jun 2012 - 22:0785560
Infested Kerrigan from Starcraft, and Hexadecimal from Reboot.

I have no idea where I'd start with the construction of either of them, only that they will both cost me a lot of money and I'm going to have to lose a lot of weight before I do either one!

I absolutely MUST Cosplay Major Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell!

I love nearly ALL of her outfits so its hard to pick which one I want to do first but I plan to someday Cosplay EVERY single outfit she wears throughout the series and movies >w<

She is like my Idol of the Anime world and I am just waiting for the day when I get enough money (or a paying job xDD) to be able to pull her off as accurately as possible ^^

Mine are Rydia from Final Fantasy IV, Valefor's aeon form from Final Fantasy X and a Lugia gijinka.

Also, anything from BlazBlue. Mainly because I keep putting off cosplaying it.

mine was definetly Damon Baird - Gears of War 3, I still have some work to do on him as i wasnt completely happy with the finished article so new boots and armour amending a go go!

My new dream cosplay has to be the recently annouced Lt Damon Baird from Gears Of War Judgment! Dem Shackles! xD

Hopefully i'll start work on it after Oct Expo and get it done before Launch night in early 2013!


06 Jun 2012 - 17:2485610
Most of mine are from Kuroshitsuji - fairly common, I know, but they feature on my Bucket List as costumes that I absolutely want to make myself. There's quite a large number of them, so think it'll take me a few years to get through them all. Also on that list are She-Ra (She-Ra Princess of Power) and Jessie (Pokemon), just for the nostalgia
