I've been to a few conventions and read alot of guidelines online for convention rules and none of them seem to have consistent policies and enforcement. The guidelines are often fairly vague like no "offensive content" or "hate symbols". I can understand the rules about no real or realistic weapons, although I have still seen plenty of cosplayers walking around cons with fairly realistic looking prop guns. Also, how do you determine offensive content? Like I was thinking about putting together a cosplay of Schrodinger from Hellsing but I don't want to get kicked out of a con before I even walk in the door. Does this mean all realistic military uniforms are inappropriate? What about Tanya the Evil or Marvel's Hydra? Also, what determines appropriate sexual content. I've seen plenty of cosplayers in what amounts to lingerie, bikinis, and dominatrix gear, and this was still during daylight hours. Also, not to mention all the dealers selling barely obscured porn art. What do you think is appropriate and not appropriate for a convention, especially one open to all ages, and who determines that?
Technically this should be a topic, but I made it a blog instead. I personally have never been to any pony cons. I was originally planning to go to BronyCon this year but the con was placed at the worst possible time for me. I once went to a few local cons in search of ponies but found nothing except for one pony/AOT crossover poster. I plan to go to Pacific Pony Con, BABS Con and Brony Con, and MLP MSP next year to make up for this year.
A question for those of you who've been to a brony convention: Pony videos get about a hundred times as many views as pony stories. So I guess for every brony who reads fan-fiction, there's a hundred who don't. So maybe, at a brony convention, only 1 in 100 people there have read any fan-fiction. Or maybe only fanatic bronies go to conventions, and most of them have read fan-fiction. See, I'd like to go to a convention if there are other fanfic readers there. But if it's just going to be three of us in a corner while everypony else is talking about music videos, not so much. Which is it?
