I do know that some cosplayers in the past have shown up at the Civic Center in-costume, posed for pictures, and then headed back to Japantown w/o walking in the parade. While I'm not-sure if they entered the costume-contest or not, I know they didn't walk in the parade because I always walk the parade route and take pictures.
I'm looking forward this year to the CBFP regardless of the removal of the costume-contest and the float(s.)
"This is your job. You want a clear conscience, go start a charity. But if you want your own photography business, and your cosplayer boss says you gotta go out there and take a photo-shoot, go out there, take it, come back to work, and say "DO YOU NEED ME TO DO IT AGAIN?!!"
