BRHood: I never thought about that. I feel like it would be hard. It’d rely on the staff to enforce it, and would also have to recognize that brownfacing your skin for a cosplay is wrong. And I can see way too many people blowing that off and saying it’s not problematic. Maybe if you got a LOT of signatures on a petition, they’ll see that it IS a problem and would ban it. But that’s a very interesting idea.
Would it be acceptable to write to whoever's in charge of a certain convention about banning brownfacing/blackfacing/etc? Has anyone ever tried?
