Keep working at what you love. I've been going to cons since I was 12 years old and I started cosplaying at 13. Back then it wasn't as mainstream, and I'm so thankful that it is now. I'm so happy to see people grow and be introduced to this community. There will always be those assholes who think you do it for "attention," or that you do it because you want to seem "appealing to men." Fuck that mentality. It doesn't matter when you start cosplaying. It doesn't matter if you started young or you started when it became more popular. If you love what you do, ignore the haters. They will always be there. But for every lonely pos on the internet, there's another 10 people who love and support your hobby. Keep going. Don't let any negativity stop you.
