I'll give away my complaints since I can't hold anything back.
- More Security at Hilton and Marriot
When I arrived on Thursday night after work (2 hour drive from VA), I parked my car at the Holiday Inn, across from the Hilton. As I did, thousands of Ravens fans left a game and were walking down streets. Problem is: a majority of them had too much to drink. One female BC staff member was sexually harassed by three men and a disabled vet came to her aid while some crazy woman got in my face when she saw me carry my MLP Wal-Mart display. Not only her, but her friends got in in, too. Good thing I brought my steel bat for protection because I never walk the streets of Baltimore at night when BronyCon is in town. So where was Security in all of this? There were only a few but I was expecting more to protect all attendees no matter what.
- Tavern Perlesque's policies of Re-Entries
I don't remember this policy from last year but I do remember the No Photography policy. However, no one can't come back inside the event if they used bathroom or have to an answer an emergency call via cell during the show? How is this fair?
- Fashion Show and Gala relocated
I love the Fashion show and Gala. I really do! However, when the time came for this year's schedule and map, I was completely baffled as to why these two events went from the Ballroom on the 400th floor to the Hall of the Sun. The last three Fashion Shows/Cosplay Contests I've been to were a lot of fun as to show off my cosplays in front of a huge room with a big stage in front of 1,000s. This year, on the other hand, I felt disappointed. Not only did my cosplay of Sting was terrible, IMO, but the excitement of being in this year's Fashion Show was just not there. Yet, I wonder why the Fashion Show was not in the Mane Event's Stage downstairs because the stage set looked amazing and it looked more lively. So for next year, PLEASE put the Fashion Show in the Mane Event's area. As for the Gala, everyone has spoken so I do not need to repeat everything.
Whatever happened to the Open Mic event? Was 2016's Open Mic event horrible or less attended? I've been practicing and rehearsing a skit for Open Mic for months that was meant to be a follow up from a skit back in 2015. However, last year, I didn't attend Open Mic because I was at the gala at that time so I couldn't do it and I thought it will be back for this year? However, it wasn't listed.
