can a con get away with that?
Most cons I've been to judge skits and costumes separately, so it is possible to get an award for a skit and an award for your costume construction. The only time I remember seeing this happen was for groups who did a skit together and then also entered for group construction. It is highly unlikely for anyone to win multiple costume categories since they usually break it up by skill level so you can't qualify for more than one level, though judges' choice and best of show can sometimes overlap with the general awards since they are more subjective.
