I do not know what to cosplay next year!
I need some help choosing who to be next year. Recommend anyone that would suit the way I look or one of the people from my planned cosplay list. It would help a great deal! I'm ginger now too, I no longer have red hair, but I can get a wig<3

Since you have quite a few on your planned list it might be worth seeing what cosplay groups are already planned for the events your going to next year and then deciding which (if any) of your planned cosplays fit those groups

I get the problem too of wanting to do every character I like! But what gaming_goddess suggests is a good idea, have a look on convention forums and see if there's a group that you can slot in to, especially if they're missing a character you want to do. Honestly enjoying playing the character is more important than just looking right for it, so it'll be more help than having people tell you what they think you look right for.

Sounds good advice to me.

The only bit I'd add to consider is how much time will there be available for you to make it. I know it's a year but an Amy Pond is always going to be easier than Paine if you have lots of commitments.

Looking at your planned list I'm tempted to suggest Road Camelot, or Lavi. Because they're awesome characters. Also, I'm planning a few D. Gray Man cosplays myself (Lulubell,Lenalee, Grave of Maria), so it would be fun if we could get a group going for some fun photoshoots.

Otherwise, I'd say just pick someone you feel especially excited about doing. Cosplays about fun, and its no fun if you're cosplaying someone you don't really like

This is very true - but when I was starting out I would start with cosplays that were simple to make or were mainly assembled items with modifications. This way you know that there will always be a new cosplay to wear while your working on other more heavy input cosplays. Unfortunatly though only you can decide your time budget But sometimes you may find that even though a costume seems initially hard once you get into the flow of it it will become easier. I generally have three or four cosplays in the making at any one time purely for the fact that when I get bored of one I move onto the next. I know that technique doesn't work for everyone but I've found it works well for me and helps manage time easier because something you predicted might take 100 hours might only take 50 and visa versa I also buy a lot of the fabric I need in one big bulk trip to the fabric store - this is to prevent wasting time in making multiple trips
