It’s times like this when I remember that the show taught lessons that meant something.
First image: Text=Respect everyone’s personal space! It’s okay to enjoy a cosplay of a character you like, but don’t get in their face.Image is Pinkie Pie getting in Twilight’s face.
Second image: Text=Enjoy the merchandise, but leave room for others to enjoy, too. Image is the ponies (save for Dash) in a balloon basket with Pinkie holding a box.
Third image: Text=Respect beginner costumes. Everyone was a beginner at some point. Image is Pinkie with a fake mustache.
Fourth image: Text=Do not ask inappropriate questions at panels. Image is Fluttershy glaring at Discord.
Fifth image: Text=Be mindful of younger attendees. Image is Spike clinging to Applejack’s leg.
It’s convention season once again*! Here’s some reminders, based on things I’ve seen.
NOW FOR A BIG WALL OF TEXT
For the first one, yes, we have characters we really like. And some costumes are very beautiful, cute, or sexy, what have you. That does not give anyone an excuse to get too close to that person.
Second: Don’t crowd too much. Others will want to see the merchandise too, so be fair,
Third: Don’t go around mocking beginner cosplayers. It’s not nice. Especially if they’re young. Everyone has beginnings.
Fourth: Yeah, do not ask those questions. No, it’s not funny. It can bother the people running the panel and the audience. Not everyone will think it’s funny that Pinkie Pie killed everyone in a fanfic, or if there are Bronies who like to interpet an innocent character to be abusive.
Fifth: Try not to step on the little kids, okay? If there’s a panel, let them go first in the question round if you can. They’re younger, and will not necessarily have the patience to wait through a trillion questions, and apply #4 to this.
*it’s actually always convention season with Bronies. You have more conventions than the Hub does recycled background characters.
daw, i love me some soarburn.

The apple pony wakes up early.
