List Rules Vote up the cosplayers that landed a gut-punch on ageism.

Cosplaying is an art form as old as time - maybe it's only as old as comic books, but that's still quite some time? Superman and Batman both came to be in the '30s, so it only makes sense their OG fans might be a bit older. While you may not picture your standard cosplayer as someone over 40, the cosplayers here want to show you that nothing is reserved for young 'uns only. Boomers and Millennials possess more in common than anyone wants you to think.

Older citizens are changing cosplay as you know it, re-imagining beloved characters as their older selves and demonstrating that justice gets older but it never dies. Everything from comic heroes to the geekiest film characters to even Adventure Time princesses is represented below. You best learn to respect your elders, because these ones can kick your a**, right after they school you in Star Wars trivia.
