On a tangent I wish katsucon had been more strict about reinforcing its dress code that it largely inherited from the venue. The "no bare chests" mandate shouldn't be able to be circumvented by dudes covering 2 parts of their chests with tape...or if they can, both genders should be allowed to do it.

When the cons allow programming that has only tenuous ties to Japanese culture, like mlp, then aren't they encouraging cosplay of those unrelated properties? Maybe the cons can't/don't outright regulate what costumes can't be worn but in a way they could be pushing us towards what can be worn. Not that it matters, I'm just thinking here, and that always leads to trouble

It'd be nice to see older cosplay regularly at cons, that being cosplay of older series besides amg and shounen. I thought that the older gundam was being cosplayed at recent cons, only to find that it was actually stuff from unicorn. Older shows seem to get drummed out of the cons faster than I'm feeling the older fans do.
