There was a Darth Vader sound alike competition, where people were tested on the phrase "Leave that to me". Sally Beasley was either a winner or an honourable mention.

The phrase 'no costume is no costume' was introduced to Perth fandom as a result of the 'Least Dressed Costume' competition. Costumes included a bookmark and a paper bag.
