      There were at least 10 Star Wars costumes there on Sunday, but not
      everyone entered the contest.

      Frankly, I do not think that any costuming group should receive
      special treatment at the Comicon. If you wear a costume, you get free
      admission on Sunday. That sounds like a good deal to me.
