Cons are fun and all, but sometimes being an adult at a convention surrounded by teens makes you feel out of place or old (maybe thats just me?)

I was just wondering if theres a big community of adult cosplayers planning on attending Megacon '08. If so, lets gather and party!

I'm 25 and since my b-day is the day before mega i'll be 26.... hides in corner.. ::I'm a cosplay grannie:: lol

Hey Scandia, I can't wait to see you. It's been ages.

I hope we can all meet up together. I've met a lot of nice people at cons but it would be nice to meet some people that are a bit closer to my age. I remember when most anime cons were all upper high schoolers and college aged people. Anyone know of any fun places to go by the convention center?

I'm 21. Glad to see I won't be expected to outgrow this any time soon! Who's bringing the booze?

Maybe I ought to stop cosplaying teenage characters. Somebody at AWA said I looked 12.:argue:

Actually, at Megacon you tend to see more adult cosplayers, as Megacon promotes comic book/scifi costuming as well. Its easier to find adults in those specific genre, I've found.

it's all disney-esque. the fun is on the other side of orlando (ibar/the social/etc) it really depends on the scene you're into.

i'm an old indie rock hipster, so barbeque bar is my vibe.

I don't drink, either, albeit for different reasons.
I do have a good memory for antics and stories* told to me by drunk people, though, so watch out. {cackles}

*Alas, there are some things the mind's eye can not un-see...

my group of friends ranges from 25 to 29, I'll be 27 by the time the con rolls around. Megacon tends to have more non-teens than the other cons anyway since it's not strictly anime.

For you 21 and up - The wolfpack will be throwing a major celebration Saturday night and rented out the GloLounge (glow in the dark club) in Orlando - near the convention. Adults only - great drink specials. Come in costume, or not. Whatevs. I have the flyers, or you can pick one up at the convention at the booth. If you'd like it early - PM me.

I'm of age as well - we should all get together and drink legally haha!

Drinking's overrated. Once you've been of drinking age for a couple months it loses its appeal. I'm not very interested in drinking but is everyone else still interested in meeting up together at the con. Maybe get a bite to eat?

makio
01-24-2008, 03:14 PM
Personally speaking... I tell everyone when the whole subject of drinking comes up; that whether it's at a house party or a convention's Saturday Night party, no one's forcing you to drink(I sure as hell won't stand for anyone doing it to unwilling others in my presence). However, everyone should definitely come out with us all to hang out and more importantly... to have a good time! :sunburn: I missed going to the Wolfpack party last year; so I'm going to try for it this time around.
As for getting something to eat either at lunch or afterward, that's cool too. I just don't recommend the Denny's that's a block or two south of the convention center. Horrible service last year.




...besides, if you don't drink, that's more for me, LOL! :crylaugh:

W0lfb4ne
01-24-2008, 03:23 PM
Denny's = getting sick guaranteed lol.

This sounds fun tho - I'm def glad I got a room now! *steals your alcohol* muhahah

Denny's really is a guaranteed way of getting sick. The theory has never failed on me.

If you eat there, at least take your costume off first - nothing worse than getting sick in tights haha

Lillyane--Yay for Usagi! Megacon is the only big con this year where I won't be sporting some version of Usagi.

And Jack O Lantern-- you're not the only one who doesn't drink. I never had a taste for it, but then I found out a few years that it causes major health complications for me, so... Even though I'll be 27, I might as well be much much younger... I have more fun without alcohol anyway!

Spookloops checking in at 28! Just a few more days! I'm proud to be 21+ and still cosplaying - whenever people down me for what I do, I point out that a reliable job, more experience, more knowledge, disposable income, and having one's own residence/car equals more kick-ass cosplay! We're the people that keep up the ante in the craftsmanship sector of the community, making us an often over-looked but crucial cornerstone in the cosplay community.

There's my two cents worth..

See ya in a few days! :D

Hi! I fit this category since I'm 24. I'm glad to see that there are a group of older cosplayers out there! I'm a noob cosplayer who started last year and I've only made one costume so far (and hopefully I'll finish my second one before Saturday).

moonfall
03-06-2008, 03:21 PM
I'm only wearing my Tear (Tales of the Abyss) and Soren (Fire Emblem) costumes to Megacon. My Utena costume is too much of a pain to carry around for an entire Spring Break, and my other planned costume isn't finished.

I'm 21, but people mistake me for a middle school student. It just means I can get away with cosplaying younger characters.

Megacon has a more adult feel than most of the cons I've been to, probably because there's more focus on comic and gaming instead of just anime.
