Because westerners know only a few about Japan, it could be a good introduction. Actually, many Europeans watch anime everyday, like their grandfathers/mothers watched US movie in the 60's. It is evolution.

Or it could be really, really bad if it's a means to promote culture, as it's only going to be known about and appeal to people who in fact KNOW about Japanese culture and are into cosplay. Personally, I think these things are great, and while I'm not into it, I think it must be a hoot for the people who are -- much like those who are into Comicon. Still, to suggest this as a gateway to Japanese culture is not really flattering outside the fringe.
