Unhappy First con jitters...

Well, this is my first con and I keep feeling like I'm going to be the oldest one there! It will be so wonderful to be around so many people with similar interests. Will anyone talk to the "twenty-something" fangirl???

Awwwwwwwww! Now I feel the love! Thanks guys!!! Hey Liz-maru! Guess what? We have the same B-day! But I am older *teeters on walker*. I'm glad everyone seems so friendly. I live in a snobby town and this kind of gathering is just what I need! So many fellow fans to meet!...*tears up*

Ah Omittchi, don't worry, there will definately be older people there. I'm 25+ and we will party harder than the young bucks!

don't feel so bad, Omittchi. There are actually more "20-somethings" then there are "young bucks" like me. In fact, I have rarely seen a kid younger than 13 or so, and very few of those. You won't be so out-of-the-loop; after all, age doesn't matter. We're all going to be running around insanely or brooding in the corners anyway. Come to think of it, I haven't even seen many brooders...unless you count hardcore gamers who never see the rest of the con outside the game room, the rave, and a trip or two to the dealer's room to stock up on...stuff. Anyway, I guess the point is, I'll be perfectly willing to hang out with you, and I'm sure plenty of other people will as well!!
*sidenote:<---is turning 17, 3 weeks after the con*

You are such a little kid Tiff



And I concur your statement, I do think that the majority of the people there seemed to be older then me (I'm only 17, but I'm like 6 months older then DDR Faery), but age really doesn't matter, we need more senior cosplayers.

I just wanted to make it clear that I am NOT hatin' on the young folks! (I hope nobody took it that way...) I actually just wanted to make sure no one would think "Hey...look at the grandma in a Shuichi outfit", lol. I'm glad I can interact with you guys like this before the con, though. Now I'm starting to feel more at ease about going! So... much luv to the young'uns and the fellow old timers and keep those replies comin'! :japan:

Chuckle, twenty-something old? My older sister & I (both in our 30s) will be cosplaying there.

Me and my friends were con virgins at Animazement last year! We had a blast. I'm probably going as Rakka from Haibane Renmei, so look out for me and say hi, kay?
