Hmmm, I'd have to say.... I dunno, I was only there for Friday at '07, so I can't say much. And while there were a lot of Naruto and stuff, I did enjoy the really good cosplays.
Saw a few awesome ones. Hei from Darker Than Black, Kyuubi from Naruto, Dante and Nero from DMC, Saix from FF/KH Fox, Falco, and Wolf from Star Fox, Sonic, Knuckles and Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog, Dark Link, Dark Zelda, Magic Armor Link, normal Link, normal TP Zelda, and Minda from Zelda, the Yoshi's from Yoshi's Story, Mewtwo from Pokemon... there were good ones, but yes, a lot of halfassed attempts, I agree.
I was the only Oki (Okami) at the entire con.
I don't mind popular cosplays as long as they're done right. Like Naruto one's, no, a Leaf Headband and a cloak does not make you the Fourth Hokage... but if you do it really well, I'm really pleased.
I like Naruto, and Bleach, and stuff like that, but I'd like to see more minor characters from the series, and/or the costumes done better, if one can.
I'm going as Hidan from Naruto for '09. Yes Naruto is popular, but yes, I will put a lot of effort into the cosplay. Just because Naruto is popular, doesn't mean you should tell fans of the series they shouldn't cosplay as it.
