Cosplayer Reveals Age and States Disappointed Followers Can Unfollow her
As you can tell from the title of this post, Alice has disclosed her age on her profile. Normally, when there’s an age revelation, one expects something surprising that will leave everyone astonished. Considering that her post garnered over 1 million views.
So, take the test, look at the photo below of her and try to guess how old Alice is. In the image below, she’s cosplaying as Bakarina, the protagonist from the anime Hamefura:
And here’s another cosplay of hers, portraying Barbara from the popular mobile game Genshin Impact. In both photos, she appears extremely youthful, doesn’t she? I’m not the foremost expert on the subject, but I’d say she’s wearing heavy makeup in both photos. I might be mistaken, though.
Anyway, are you ready to find out her age? Alice is 36 years old. Well, I can imagine what you’re probably thinking; it’s nothing out of the ordinary. People at 36 can still look very young. Is there something more to this story, though?
Hmm… no, in her post, she simply reveals her age, which is 36, and mentions that if someone is disappointed, they can quietly stop following her.
Let’s see some reactions to this revelation:
“Wonderful! In fact, you’re going to gain more followers.”
“You’re younger than me, kiddo.”
“As someone who’s behind the camera, age doesn’t matter to me. In fact, I like you even more.”
“You’re 36 and still looking great. In fact, I think you’ll look even better going forward.”
“Incredible! We’re from the same generation, but you’re completely different from me, who always claims to be eternally 17. I admire you a lot.”
“Magic? You look like you’re in your twenties! Anyway, your Barbara is adorable.”
“In fact, I like you even more now.”
“So cute. Ah, don’t worry about those who are disappointed by this; they’re not true fans.”
“It’s amazing to see the makeup skills you have. The quality of your cosplay demonstrates a high level of skill. It’s almost as if you’re at your peak, with incredible determination.”
“Incredible at 36. It’s surprising that someone so beautiful exists. I’m three years younger than you.”
“I wasn’t disappointed; I thought you were about 27.”
“I want you to keep it up, no matter how old you are.”
Japan has a culture that values younger girls more. If you reach your mid-20s, it’s already challenging to achieve certain things. In your 30s, even more so, but Alice is doing very well and has incredible makeup skills.
