Of course!! I got to watch some newly finished stuff, including a public service announcement for the UK, done with animation from the new OAV "Shadow Chronicles". I also met with one of the voice actors for it (he played Roy Folker previously).
Right now they have all the recording done for it, and are just working on the pre-animation before they edit and go into full animation and post production. It'll be out later this year, with the full intention to go into a full new series. The SDF-4 is a serious beast!

Ultimate virgin hangout? You seriously misunderstand anime fanatics
As for Cosplay, I would say about half of the 5,000 people or so who attended were in costumes... maybe slightly less. It was pretty amazing. Probably the most crazed costume I saw was the tentacle beast... that one was nuts!!
Sadly, my own costume did not come together properly in time, so I was one of the non-cosplayers
I'm quite looking forward to going to my next anime convention, which will be in late August. It's amazing to see how much anime has become a big thing both here in Vancouver and also in Seattle.
