I am in no way affiliated with or officially associated with Youmacon, but if you have any questions or concerns, I will do my best to answer. Youmacon has been an annual trek for me for many years.

No problem. The situation is very confusing for everyone.

The GM Renaissance Center has a lot of security guards, and they are armed, if memory serves. Youmacon might not be enforcing the policy, but the guards will be.

I have no idea if this policy applies to the people mover (the train), but that might extremely limit cosplays for individuals with disabilities, as the walk to Cobo is over 10 minutes.

Snippets from www.youmacon.com ‘s update regarding new GM policy banning weapon replicas and face coverings. Please inform anyone you know that is planning to attend.

It should be noted the site itself says Youmacon is not enforcing this policy and it only applies to certain areas. It does not apply to the Renaissance Center and Cobo Hall.

The GM center has security guards, the Ren Cen is a GM space. The hotel is the Marriott.

The area with the stores, food, and large open area is a part of the GM Ren Cen, since that is where the showcase is located. The entire building is multiple different business entities.

Unless I am mistaken, this policy change affects the food court level, where most photoshoots take place.

First Vriska showed up with this and saying hey, maybe doing bad things is wrong. 

Except she thinks herself to be better than everyone else to the point that bad things are okay if she does them, because someone else is doing worse things, and she knows everything is wrong. So she can keep making people feel like shit, because she is the one doing it, and she has the holy insight of morality. Her version of morality, which is centered around her becoming a dictator and a martyr for the sake of the universe and spiting everyone that called her mean, basically. Even though there are thousands of others that could helping be with their own knowledge and experience. 

Vriska is trying to cut down a forest by herself with 50,000 chainsaws and having everyone follow her in a straight line to hold the chainsaws for her instead of letting them actually help and improve the strategy, because her ego and victim complex are the size of multiple galaxies combined.

combobulatedprognosticator asked: I found it interesting the way you found Vriska's speech forced or rehearsed. Because I felt the same way, but for different reasons. You attributed it to script being bad. I attributed it to Vriska forcing a dramatic speech in to justify these things to herself and everyone else. Like, she'd prepped / practiced this speech in advance to justify her BS as everyone is bailing.

Basically this, too. It came immediately after she treated everyone like shit, realizes that she treated everyone like shit, and then suddenly pulls out “oh but anything I do is better than TOTAL DESTRUCTION so I can do and say anything I want stop picking on me!!!” 

When in reality everything would probably be a whole hell of a lot easier if she explained the entire situation and had the entire army working together with their own functioning minds instead of declaring herself the holy savior of the universe and the only being capable of thoughts critical and clever enough to save everyone. Which is a typical narcissistic manipulative mindset. Instead of having things go a million times quicker by letting anyone else give input, she declared herself the holy grail of beings, the pinnacle of perfection, and refuses to accept any criticism, alternative ideas, or opinions that could possibly encourage anyone else to believe her godly ideas and goals are even the slightest bit wrong. 

She definitely practiced that speech, and tells herself over and over again that at least she is not bad as everyone else, so she can keep being awful and refuse to acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, she has (major) flaws. Congratulations. You are not as shitty of a person as you could be. Now try improving from there.

Alcoholism in teens as a punchline was just barely tolerable the first 500 times, but it starts to get old really, really fast. I get it. Reliance on alcohol is entertaining. Teens not having self control is amusing. Teens sometimes drink a lot more than they should when encountering stressful situations. Why show a teenager realistically and painfully responding to a stressful situation when you can lighten the mood and show them hilariously drunk off their ass instead? 
Comedy gold.
