Okay so I didn't read all the posts past OP because I really didn't feel like it but honestly, there is no age limit to cosplay! I'm turning 25 this year....I got into it when I was 18-19 years old and I plan on cosplaying for a very long time. I know people who are well into their 30s and 40s who still cosplay. There's no age limit!! Now if you're going for a government job I wouldn't go around telling everybody that you do it. It is still looked down upon in some places. But that's the beautiful thing about making separate pages on facebook (and other social media sites) to seperate your professional self and you hobby self.
I'd say go for it love! It's a great thing! I met my fiance through it and made some of the greatest friends a girl could ask for.
