A general rule of thumb is that there really is no age limit on life. If you enjoy something you should go on and do it. I mean look at our current generation, we have grown men playing video games and obsessing over talking horses.

Cosplaying can be for all ages. I guess you cant be too old. Remember that all anime characters are young, Master Roshi for example lol it would be hard to cosplay him if you arent over the age of 70

You are never too old to enjoy what you love. That is a fact! Even if you are 90 and you want to sky dive even if it kills you. Anime is obviously not limited to a certain age. Just enjoy and live with what makes you smile. That is life to me.

You're never too old for cons. While I admit that the anime cons seem to have people from High School to College Age. I have seen more and more parents bringing young ones to cons. So I don't think anything is too old for people.

Never too old to have a blast and party, and just cosplay if you're self-conscious. Anime cons are better in my honest opinion, but Sci-Fi cons have a lot of older people there. I regularly go to a few cons in the area, and I see some of the same people there every year who are a bit older but come up with awesome cosplay, like Uncle/General Iroh from Avatar, Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle, even Mr. T was trolling around awhile ago. The trick is to always go with the right people, the right crowd makes it all worthwhile ^ - ^

- Good luck, and remember not to take it too seriously!

Don't let age stop you from doing what you love! Whether you're 20 or 60, if you like anime and want to share that with other people, why does age have to stop you?

I went to one last year. I was 20 years old walking around in what looked like a sea of 16-18 year olds. What's worse is that I look like I'm in my mid to late 20's, almost 30 depending on who you ask. But I had a fun. I was waiting in line for a panel and saw an older couple, well into their 30's at least, and over heard them talking with a couple younger attendees about the Yugioh decks they were using. My guess as long as you love anime/otaku culture and your having fun, there's know such thing as too old.

The way I see it is that no matter how old you are if you like something and enjoy doing something you like then that's great.

At the end of the day people have a right to like what they like and not give a damn what other people think.

If you enjoy it and are having fun, then it doesn't matter how old you are; do what makes you happy (and that goes for practically anything in life)!

Although conventions (anime-specific conventions especially) tend to skew to the younger end of the age spectrum, you'll always see older people there too.
Cons aren't really based around age, they're based around people with a shared passion for something. As an older convention goer myself, I'd go as far to say that cons are one of those, relatively rare, examples of an experience where age plays no part in the friends you make and the random conversations that you find yourself a part of.
If someone likes your costume, or gets the obscure Doctor Who reference on your T-shirt, or is standing next to you in line and spots you checking out the cool action figure you just picked up for an extortionate price in the exhibition hall, then chances are they're going to want to talk to you, no matter what shape, size, age or gender you are. That's why, at their best, conventions are beautiful things.
