* DawsonCasting

to:

* DawsonCastingDawsonCasting is when an adult actor portrays a far younger character.
* Very common in {{cosplay}}, especially of the anime/manga variety. Many cosplayers are adults, and many popular anime characters are in their teens, leading to this trope; depending on the character, this can also fall into Type A with children or overlap with WholesomeCrossdresser. With the right makeup, it can be surprisingly effective.

* One episode of ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' had both Mimi and Drew's then-girlfriend applying for a job in the cosmetics department, giving makeovers. One of Mimi's would-be clients was a petite, middle-aged woman who had been dressing in clothes from the children's department since childhood. Mimi lost it on her, and of course she didn't get the job.
