I'm of that rare breed where I'm an anime fan first, a gamer/sci-fi geek/comic book fan second, so I was very much of the mindset "It's an anime convention, people, focus on the anime!"
I used to get bugged by non-anime costumes but I've learned that it's not worth getting worked up about. Everyone's going to do what they want, and we are all a bunch of geeks, let's all have fun.

Though, I will admit, it still seems weird when the largest concentration of cosplayers are from something that's not anime.

The issue I will still be a curmudgeon about is when this starts spilling into programming. If the event is meant to be about anime, keep the programming on track with things like that. If the con says its goal is to promote Japanese culture through its media, you can't really say that Doctor Who fits into that category, as good and as popular as it might be.
