Lots of people guessing for Duffy, so I'll stay away from that. I think he's actually easier to guess. ShellieMay will be the harder one.
I think her cat suit will be purple with fuchsia accents. I have my reasons why I think it will be that color, but I'll share that later (I don't have inside info, it's just a logical reasoning about past colors and other factors).
I'm not guessing as I hope Gurgi is right. I'm hoping for purple. But a nice purple something lush. Oh and her cat costume has to be as soft as Duffys (from 2009) and I like to have the paw shoes and mittens. Those make the costume.

The thing about anniversary year costumes, is that they don't usually stick to the anniversary colors on the costumes. During the 25th, they didn't use silver or anything on the costume...it was a pumpkin (orange & green), and also that purple & orange sailor costume. Then, during TDS's 10th, they didn't use the anniversary theme either. So, I'm not sure they will incorporate the Happiness Year colors this time either, just based on past patterns.
Speaking of releases connected to the Anniversary theme, there are a few items on my bucket list that would bring me real "Happiness." Since I can't guess, I hope you'll forgive my tangent.^^
Now that Shellie's getting her Cat costume (and hopefully new masks for both bears^^), I'd also like:
-Shellie's CM badge, like Duffy's from the 25th.
-new fashionable raincoat sets in muted colors, so that Shellie has one, and so that Duffy's is less "childish."
-Shellie metal charm pendant to match the Duffy one.
-Duffy FAN CAP!!!
-Halloween & Christmas storybooks
Ironically, given the theme, I've given up on the balloons.
Special bonus pipe dream: CCC shoes in fancy shoe boxes, around ¥3000 each. All with hard soles and sculpted paw prints.
One more pipe dream: Cape Cod "Olszewski-esque" buildings set with removable/addable holiday decorations, or at least a light-up Hurricane Point Lighthouse.
