I thought this would be neat to see the age range for this con. Well to start things off I'm 16. So now please tell me your age. If you don't want to its OK. Thanks.

I'm 17 but my birthday is in July so I will be 18 by the time Otakon rolls around. Yay! My first con I can buy hentai at! XD;

Michi
05-24-2003, 01:54 PM
I'm 17.. When I first went to Otakon in '01 I was 15. :p Have you never been to Otakon before? Ages range from young to old. It's a huge con. O_O

I'm 16.

Sami
05-24-2003, 05:26 PM
I am 22. ^_^

I turn 23 the month after Otakon! Woohoo!

I've begun thinking lately that I'm getting "old" compared to most of the cosplayers that I've seen.. but after a lot of thought, I've decided that it really doesn't matter because I enjoy cosplaying, and you're only as old as you feel! ^____^ (It helps a little that I look a few years younger than I really am, LOL!)

I think I was 19 or 20 at my first con.. I can't remember! @_@

I'm 21, and I've been going to Otakon since I was 16. Now that I've thought about it like that, I do feel a little old. @_@

05-24-2003, 07:27 PM
I'm 17 for this one, which I don't think will muck up my plans too much. but my mom's cool and letting me go off by myself (well, not really, but without parent-people)

I think alot of con-goers are 18+ though...

LadyXenie

I'm 14, and I'll be 15 about a month after Otakon. -_- My parents would probably let me go alone, if I went with my group.

05-24-2003, 08:13 PM
I'm 19. The month after Otakon I'll turn 20! So Otakon will be the last big excitement of my teenage years. *sigh*

Allia
05-24-2003, 08:28 PM
Yeah I know how all the people feel about over protective parents but I think once I get my lisence I'll be better off. I don't mind my mom driving the long distances though. Next year for Anime North I'll probably go alone with my friends for once. I'm not saying I don't like it when my mom comes because I love her and I love it when she is interested in what I like to do.

Koumori, I'm pretty sure I remember back in the Shoujocon chats how everyone commented that you look great for your age. ^-^

17 here. And my mom STILL feels she needs to come with me, but o well. <.< I love her, and I'm slowly turning her into an Anime Mom, so it's all good. I don't know if she'll be going to the con itself. Maybe for a little until she gets frightened and goes to a museum or something. ^-^

Koumori: Wow, you're pretty close to my age. I think I'm one of the oldest members here, at... 32 :thumbsup:, even though I don't look it. People have said I look between 21-25, and sometimes I feel it. :) Then again, when I arrive at cons at 5:00am or stay up late at cons, sometimes I do feel the weight of being 30+ coming on, and I need to sleeeeep. :thumbsup:

Wow, you're speaking like she has a senior citizen discount card in her wallet!
30 is /not/ old, not by a long shot, and you don't look great FOR 30, you look great AT 30. 9__9

How would you feel if someone told you you look great for a child? >_<;;;;

> forever 21

That's what I always say. Unless the people are being rude, then I just give them a flat stare and answer "Older than you."

Well now....an easy conundrum....
Currently, Henry is 2/3 the age of Joe....and when Henry reaches the age that Joe is now...then Joe will be 20 years old....

With that info, my age is the sum of Joe's age and Henry's age as they are now.....

...or you could just check my profile...whatever's easier....

I turn 20 in July; I find it highly amusing and take it as a compliment that several people thought I was older than that and wanted to go to the bar with me after the Xeno group when I would be dressed as Bart. To those in mention: thanks, you guys are awesome. :D

As for not getting parents to insist on going... good luck.

I'm 16 (17 in less than a month) and this is the first year I'll be parent free at Otakon. I went to Katsucon parent-free, but I had my older bro-I-turned-otaku and 18-yr-old best friend, both of whom my parents trust, which helped (alot, I imagine). Maybe try something similar?/ Maybe that's a rare situation.

I rather suspect my parents are a bit senile at this point... 17-yr-old overprotected daughter, being allowed to wander around Baltimore (3am, indefinitely?) especially when my mom's been there before, and knows it is occasionally a bit seedy.

As for being 16... What's cool is that people usually think I'm 18 or 19. That definitely won't be cool when I'm older, though. I'll be a 23 otaku-going-on 40, I bet. X_x

Favorite quotes:

Little sister Kathryn: "Rudy... (big brother), I sat on the playstation remote, and the people on TV started speaking French..."

Little sister Rachel, to Rudy: "Leilani watches bad people shows on TV, on MTV. She should watch wholesome shows, like Ranma 1/2."

Rudy: "Um... Rachel, that's not really that wholesome."

Rachel: "Yes, it is *starts sucking thumb, stops to say each sentence* It teaches you useful things. Like how to change from a boy to a girl. And how to change into animals. And how to make those big sweatdrops at the back of your head when you don't understand something." *nods*

August 25, 1983 is my birthday, so I'll be just a few weeks away from being 20 when Otakon roles around. Though I look a lot younger.

For those of you stuck going to the con with your parents, I feel your pain. Fortunately, mine didn't go to the con "with" me, I just had to check in with them every so often. It still majorly cramped my con time though...One year we didn't get there till Saturday around 11, and my dad made us leave before anything started on Sunday. I had paid for 3 days, and I only got to one. Grrr!

Thank god those days are over!

Your older than me too. I may not be the youngest but there are so many people older than me. I can't wait till I can drive to my own cons and don't have my mom regulating the con for me. I love her but I just want to relax, meet people, and have a nice time. Not having her watching over my sholder the whole time would be great.

I'm sorry but you do look a lot older than 15. Wow I would have guessed 18 or so. I'm the opposite, eryone thinks I'm so much younger. It's really annoyning. At least people don't treat you like a little kid and ask you stupid questions like "where is your mommy" ( I have been asked that question and I wanted to punch the lady).

Caryn
06-10-2003, 10:29 PM

w00t!! Maybe I'm finally starting to look my age....or maybe it was just a lucky pic :p For what it's worth, I think you look 16 as well!

It could be cause I'm short....are you short? I think that might be part of what makes people think we're younger..

Don't feel too bad..I'm only 4'10...^_^;; But I always wear heels or stacked shoes..so when I walk around barefoot people think it's too funny

I'm 4'11" too, it's so nice to know I'm not the only one! I'm 19 and people think I'm 12 simply because I'm so short. My mother is actually about 2 inches shorter than me and sometimes restaurants try to give her kids menus even though she's in her 40s. I don't know why everyone assumes that height equals age.

That is true about the height - cause I am several inches taller than my older sister and as soon as I was the taller one people automatically started assuming I was the elder of us.

Yeah i can see the height thing to. I'm 16 and about 5' 7 and I've always been looked at as being at least three years older then I really am. My dad says it has to do with the way I carry myself. It was funny, I went out for a tour guiding job in my town and when they asked what college I went to I was like, ummm I'm only in high school. I didn't get the job because of my age, but it was fun to see that people thought I was in college. ^-^

At least your taller than me BitterBeing!

Stryfe- yeah that whole resturant thing happens all the time to me. But hey I get a free desert. Make them pay for there own stupidity.

Yeah it makes me mad that becuase I'm short I must be like 10. People also think that because I'm short that I'm weak but they soon learn that they were very mistaken. Does that happen to anyone else? I hate the whole hight association thing.

A bit late but, I'm 15 and still will be when Otakon takes place. Darn late birthdays.

I also get the looking older than you are thing, since I'm 5'10 and wear really big heels. It's funny until people ask you what college your going too x.x;;.

heh don't worry people don't believe me when I say i'm in college, they all think I'm still in high school even when I'm 19.
You might as well ask than rather to assume.

Yeah, I'll be 19 at Otakon (turning 20 fairly soon after). I was at my first con when I was 16...it's so nice to see that so many younger people are able to attend cons now. My parents were totally freaked out last year when I drove with 2 other friends to Otakon (my first 'not-close' con)---of course, their fears were completely realized when we got stranded in central Pennsylvania and had to pay $2000 for a new transmission. I'm frankly quite amazed that they're letting me go this year!:p

I'm 22, and I didn't really feel old until I played FFVIII again and realized that all the characters were like 16 years old. I was like, "16?! That's outrageous! They're babies! They don't know what they're doing!" I distinctly remember playing FFVI when I was about 13, thinking that the 16 year old characters were so old and wise. Ha-ha! Actually, the fact that FFVI came out 9 years ago makes me feel old, too...

07-14-2003, 05:33 PM
I'm only 15, but I got mistaken for a 20 something year old last year. ~_~ Ehe. And no, 16 year old's aren't wise. >.< And Quistis is so old in FFVIII compared to the rest of them... o_o

*PLUG* Come see Otaku Orchestra! Playing at an Otakon near you! :D *END PLUG*

I'm 14 and I'll turn 15 one month after Otakon. I'll be going with my friend who is 18 (so I don't have to bring my mother thank god). It's a good thing she is as short as me so I won't feel so young ^_^.

I'm 22... and those of you girls going to Otakon with parents... that's fine! I won't go to Baltimore by myself. My big brother (he's 27? i think) goes with me! ^_^*

Be safe and at least be in a group of responsible people. There ba alot of crazies out there.... trust me! Especially in Baltimore.

Mephistopheles
07-15-2003, 03:35 PM
I concur. Baltimore is full of crazy folk. Trust me, I live there. I do consider myself fortunate enough to live but a 15 minute walk from the convention center, but Baltimore is kind of nutty, so do be careful.

23, turning 24 a couple weeks after Otakon. For those of you who are under my age feeling "old" already, the feeling just keeps going...

Thankfully most of my coworkers are 5-10 years older than me, so I feel young and lively most of the time! ^^;;

17 here. Turning 18 the weekend after Otakon. (August 16)

Darnit! If Otakon was just a WEEK later, I'd be able to raid the hentai rooms, and buy meself some as well XD

Been going to Otakon since I was 14. Otakon 2002 was my first 3 day "no parents" con, and I survived (kinda), so my parents are letting me stay for all of the Otakon this year too. Horray!

I'm 20! Yay! Went to my first con when I was 17. I'm really shocked so many people are having their parents accompany them..I've never had my parents with me or my friends,and at Katsucon there was an 11 year old with us. Our parents let us run wild and free! ..I fink I'm supposed to be a responsible one..oh god..Robyn..I'm gonna be the oldest person in the room..aren't I..AREN'T I!?!?

so..anyways..it's pretty embarassing when you wanna just look at hentai and you get carded..it's almost not worth it ;_;

So what do the parents do at cons? If it were me I would import someone 18 years old and have them accompany me. god..I can't imagine having parents with me at Otakon..noooo..

I feel kinda young compared to the majority of the people that posted on this topic. -x-x;; 'M only 15, and won' be 16 until October -^ ^; I look the age, too, at only 5'3''. Wish I was shorter, though..'least I'm not 'suppoused to grow anymore!

Oh well, I'll just not say my age and pretend to fit in with all you "adults" ->>- -<<- (I say this, yet I'll probably end up being the one getting an arm broken from trying to slide down the handrails on the stairwell at the main entrance...) Oh yeah! I've been going to Ota since I was 12! Whoot!

I can't wait for my birthday! I am still 19 and about to turn 20 but people think i am like 12 or something(they always ask if I want the kiddie menu) but I can't wait for Otakon becasue that is when my birthday is! My birthday is the last day of the con and I have been going to Otakon since I was 15 or 16!
I can't wait to meet you all!

Allia
07-21-2003, 12:04 PM
