Cosplay Tips for Folks over 40

Whether you are a toddler about to debut their first ever cosplay or a grandparent who has seen many generations of movies and dress up, cosplay is for everyone. Young, old, tall, short, big, small, black, white, everyone can cosplay.
While it may seem like a lot of the spotlight is on the younger generation of cosplayers, such as small children and teenagers, the older generation shouldn’t be left out! I know I love seeing adults cosplaying just as much as I love seeing babies cosplay. This shouldn’t be discouraging to older cosplayers but they should see it as an opportunity to cosplay a whole bunch of things they couldn’t before.

A few tips for some older generation cosplayers
1) Cosplay characters who are canonly age over time. Examples of this could be Hokage Naruto, Avatar Aang, Grandpa Joseph Joestar, Goku, The Ice King from Adventure Time.

My name is Mic and I am a 20-year-old girl from United States. I’ve been a cosplayer for 3 years. I just joined Dec. 2014 Crossplay Contest This character is Kirito from Sword Art Online, I hope you guys like it. Vote and share for me if you think my crossplay is good.


About the qualification

At least two photos are required. One of the photos should be showing your real gender (life photo) and the other photo should be your crossplay (the opposite gender).

(A girl cosplaying as Miku? No! If you’re a girl, crossplay means you must submit a photo of you cosplaying a male character.)

The photos should be clear enough to identify your gender and the character you are cosplaying. Couple cosplay and group cosplay are not acceptable.

Please note that only one post is valid, we’ll not add up the likes if your post is more than one or on different websites.

Miccostumes has the final say whether you’re qualified. (Contact us if you have any questions)

Winners will be announced on our blog and Facebook on Dec.31st, the prizes will be rewarded right after.
