You can never start cosplay too young. Many kids get a taste of playing dress up for play dates and for Halloween, but you can teach them an appreciation for the hobby of cosplay and creating by letting them pick costumes and taking them to conventions. It can be a fun family project to choose a character and make the costume together. I see more and more pint-sized cosplayers at conventions wearing everything from store bought costumes to elaborate armor builds. YouTuber Beat Down Boogie specializes in editing together cosplay videos from conventions, and they’ve released one featuring nothing but kids. Watch it for inspiration and plenty of cuteness.
