I guess I'm going to have to re-watch the masquerades as I don't recall a ton of newbie-alienating in-jokes...hm.
I think we do need to make clear when talking up CC that it is *small* con with a much more laid-back vibe than most cosplayers are used to, and that the focus is more on learning and sharing than on crowds and photo-ops.
Additionally I think there needs to be more awareness amongst longtime CC attendees about these issues; I'm sure most don't even notice and forget that not everyone gets those references, or knows how ____ works.
