What age did you start cosplaying o_O

This year will be my first year cosplaying, and I just really got into it last year but didn't have time to make a costume for fanime / buy one. I'm 21 atm =P (yes I know I don't look it you kneeegz), and it seems like a lot of people here started cosplaying very early on in their lives. Like.. 14-15. Then again.. I just started anime.... I was just curious if anyone else is a late bl00m3r as well. Also Fanime was my last / will be my next con :> seeing as how that's the only big one in norcal.................. zzzzzzzzzzzzz

I began Last year, when i was 13 (turning 14 that year). I was supposed to only start this year, so i wouldn't grow out of my cosplays from that year... but it was a risk i was willing to take *shrug*
The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and to be loved in return.

I went to my first con when I was 14 and I did my first cosplay when I was 15. I'm 16 now and I still think the vast majority of congoers are older than me. Id guess the average age of people at cons would be between 20 and 25.

I started several years ago when I was 16, I think. And I thought THAT was young until I see all of the even younger people now. XD

My first convention and attempt at cosplaying (I'll call it that haha) was back in 2008 when I was 14. Which is pretty average age-wise around where I live for most people to start out. I'm 17 now and I'm much more into cosplay and the convention scene. Back then it was more just trying it out haha

I started cosplaying (meaning planning to work on a cosplay) November 2009 so, uhhm.... I was 16 years old. I'm 17 right now, soon 18.
But if I don't remember all wrong I attended a small "manga day" event before that, ahaha.
