We have a saying here in Toronto that I think sums up what many people in this thread have said nicely:

"There are Anime Fans who Costume, and then there are Costumers who are Anime Fans."

It's the latter we're appealing to in the case of Costume-Con.

Some people who start as Anime Fans don't realize initially that they would have a passion for costuming as well so it's nice when they have a venue to branch out and try other things, or discuss that particular part of their fannishness.
