I'll be 23 by then XD

I've seen several cosplayers older then me and everyone has a blast at A-kon!
Regardless of age, A-kon is great! I've even seen little babies cosplaying~

Hardly. I'm not sure from your question whether you're concerned about fitting in or if think you won't enjoy it, and would encourage you to try it at least once on a Saturday. If you've never been to one, it can a bit of a sensory overload. It's an event filled with wonderful, creative and artistic people, who are a lot of fun. :¬j

Twenty-five, no problem at all. I'm probably the poster child for the aging anime fan. These conventions are much more about enjoying what we have in common than isolating people because of differences. There are simply too many funs things to do and see to waste anytime ridiculing somebody else.

You'll probably get a lot of approval and encouragement for you to cosplay next time!

Just don't lose your badge!

I'll be 22 by then =_= but I've been mistaken as 14, 16, and 18 (by people asking if I'm in college yet) not that anyones asked but I've also been mistaken as a guy (even when NOT cosplaying) heh... I don't think I'll EVER grow out of cosplay... I'm just too addicted now OO and I always think it's neat to see children cosplay because... I didn't even get into Anime until I was in high school and didn't cosplay until my first year of college... isn't that sad ^^; heh... so in a way I am SO INCREDIBLY jealous of young cosplayers but I'm happy there are some! They really make the experience even better and OO

Older cosplayers man they ROCK becuase it's hard for me to find ANYONE my age or older that I don't already know who even know what anime IS (live in Muskogee, OK and you'll see uu UGH) So yes! ROCK ON you older cosplayers!!! I'm gonna be like you in a few years hehehhehehehe and spook young children I hope! LOL

You'll fit in perfectly with the rest of us crazies! :bigtu: I know there are plenty of people waaaaaaayyyyyy older than you or me that go to A-kon, so you'll be just fine. A chibi Goku?! Awwwwwwwww, kawaii~! :heart: I must get a pic of that! I'm sure you'll be thinking of cosplaying along with your son soon! Point is, have fun! You'll love it! :p And remember, you're only as old as you feel. By the way, I'm 22, but have been mistaken for a high schooler many a time because of........um.............well............let's not get into that! :thumbsup:

(With a Riccardo Montalban/Armando Gutierrez accent) Oh, but you have under estimated me, my dear Tenya Muyo.
(Don't forget the accent) Perhaps you've missed me as El Santo, Mexico's most famous masked wrestler? And, I am no slouch. I can even strike dramatic poses for those fine photographers at ushagican and fansview.

Well I am 23 and I totally don't act my age. No one really care about age, I think the older the person the better because one year I saw a 86 old lady come as Rikku from Final Fantasy. It was great! :thumbsup:

I'm 19 and I'll be 20 when A-kon starts. Don't worry cuz 25 is still considered young to alot of people but really you're there to have fun! I know I'll still be cosplaying for a way way long time maybe even at 50, who knows? Heh but I fell in love with anime when I was 9 I believe (Ranma½!) and I didn't start cosplay til this year! There weren't any conventions in Houston last year (not any I know of..) and now there is 3. For some reason I just didn't think about cosplay but I wish I did when I was younger.

I'm 13 and planning on going, but because if puberty or something, everyone thinks I'm 14-16 years old. Heck, when I was in second grade, I had LLLLOOOOOOOOONNNNNNGGG hair and someone thought I was a very short 17-year-old.0.0 Okaaayyyy.....
But the again, since I'm turning 14 in August, I'll still be 13 by then.

I'm only 14. But when I have full makeup on and I'm all dressed up, people think I'm in my 20's. >__>
That's what happened at A-kon last year. I was only thirteen then. my friends and I had just got our pictures taken with Psycho le Cemu and we were sitting with some guys talking to them and somehow we got on the subject of age. They asked how old I was and when I told them they were like O___O. They said they thought I was 21. I must be a very short 21-year-old. lol. ^__^

I'll be 25 tomorrow. And my sister is 17. There's a HUGE age range, so I don't think you've have any trouble fitting in :) We've been going to A-kon since I was 20 and I've never felt like I was too old. I don't want to have to stop going, just cause I'm getting older! That'd be a silly reason anyways :P

...Yeah, I know. Kind of a pointless post. XD

I was 19 at my first con (A-kon of last year, actually). I thought I was too young, in some ways. I look up to the older cosplayers, so it's all good ^_^
