If I remember correctly I started cosplaying since I was 22 and now I'm actually turning 24. I too feel I started way too late because most of the time when I meet people they usually tend to be people who aren't even out of high school yet. Most of the time I almost feel way too old for this even though most people would say it is not so lol. I don't mind though I tend to have a lot of fun anyways and lots of tipsy moments =).

I've been sewing since I was a kid and made my first costume unassisted when I was 17, though I didn't really get into cosplay until I attended my first anime convention right after I turned 19. I'm 26 now and looking forward to my ten year anniversary as a costumer this winter.

Personally, I'm glad I started a little later. I already had some experience with sewing at that point, and there are benefits to being an adult cosplayer: no chaperon, no con curfew, more cash flow, more likely to have your own transportation, etc. I'm also lucky(?) in that I'm short-ish with a youthful face, so my character range isn't limited by my age.

I really got into anime and manga when I was about six or seven, and then my first convention was when I was eight...
But when I fully began cosplay was when I turned ten; Anime Expo 2008 was my first convention that I did a Real cosplay at (I did a halfass ambu at Wizard World 2007).

So, I started at ten and I am almost fourteen now, and I make all of my own costumes x)

I was a bit on and off with cosplay..but I started when I was 12, my first cosplay was Ed from Cowboy Bebop. I'm 21 now, I didn't always make cosplays myself so this time around I want to really try hard with tutorials I find online (like making armor)

I believe I was around 14/15 when I first cosplayed. However, I wasn't too serious about it until I was 18. I'm turning 24 next month.

AX04 was my first con, I was 12. The following year at age 13 I wore my first costume to AX05, with complete help from my grandma and a commissioner. By age 15 cosplaying sort of died down, with lack of money/skill/firm decisions. Now I'm 19, and am trying to get back into the hobby. =3

I was 16. I'm turning 18 in a few months, so it hasn't been too long.
