Pretty much the definition of Popular vote.
Anyways it will really depend on how they let votes be taken. If by the internet and everyone can vote. Non-Attendees can vote in which will skew the vote.
If at the con. It will depend on who has the larger entourage to get people to vote.
I'll stick my neck out and say, outside of the cosplay community. Nobody really cares enough about cosplay to be even bothered to vote.
