also do people wear costumes on days other than the costume contest?
I've seen people wear costumes everyday of the con, but there are more on the day of the contest. Only a small number enter the contest because there isn't much room. They have a costume parade before the contest. Anyone in the contest and anyone in costume can be a part of the parade. At least that is the way it seemed two years ago. Every aspect of costume is represented on stage and in the halls. I've seen Anime through Video Games. Steampunk is there but I don't think I've ever seen Japanese street fashion like Lolita etc.
