If I go to a comic con and see some one wearing a Star Wars shirt, that is totally fine. We will still have fun.

Outside of cosplay or more formal attire I'm usually wearing something like a Firefly shirt at cons. I don't have any issue with something like that as (besides hypocrisy lol) it's proven to me to be a great way to get to meet other con goers. Even for things like Doctor Who I don't have much of an issue.

Stormtrooper cosplay and internet meme cosplay just rub me the wrong way at anime cons. Unless you're cosplaying something like Lost Universe (shudder) there is no reason to have lightsabers as props at an anime con IMO. I would also think it's universally agreed that if you're cosplaying a stormtrooper you never should have a lightsaber prop, no matter what con you're at. Katsucon had stormtroopers fighting with prop lightsabers. That's wrong on SO many levels.
