  5. In a world of voice actors, one man stands as a guiding force, a beacon in the star-filled sky, a new hope for us all. With the strength and steadfastness of an apple tree, he cries “Eeyup.” This Spring, BABSCon is pleased to welcome back the force that is Peter New! Peter’s iconic “Eeyup” has brought such life and character to MLP:FiM’s wise Big Macintosh, who is he is arguably one of the most beloved male characters of the show. But Peter New isn’t just a one “Eeyup” man. Many of the other stallions we meet are voiced by Peter as well, including Rarity’s and Pinkie Pie’s dads …plus Squizzard, the mighty squid wizard. Peter also had an amazing musical number in the episode “Filli Vanilli.” Lest anyone forget, one year Peter also arrived at BABSCon’s Saturday VA panel as the glorious Princess Big Mac. In addition to his “apple” acting, Peter New is the speaking and singing voice of Sunil Nevla on Littlest Pet Shop, made on-screen appearances on shows such as Psych, Stargate SG-1, Dead Like Me, and Point Blank, and even had a Leo Award Nominated role as Donald Dirk in Sunflower Hour. Peter New joins Tabitha St. Germain as a Guest of Honor at BABSCon 2017 and we have a lot more industry and community guests to announce! Register now at babscon.com. Also, be on the lookout for amazing Black Friday deals starting Thanksgiving night. Here’s a hint: the code is BLACKFRIDAY20
  6. Hello All, If you have done the top packages in Babscon before, you might already know me. I have the distinction of being one of the guests who has attended Babscon in the top tier package for all 3 years it has been held. Being an older somewhat strong willed person (aka pushy broad) I often became the one that other guests would ask questions of since I made sure I had the answers even if no one was offering the answers. Every year Babscon has done their best taking care of the Top Tier Sponsors and every year they have fallen short largely due to being so under-staffed that they could not dedicate one volunteer exclusively to making sure it all went the way it should............until now. At the end of last year I had a lovely talk with We Are Borg and I told him that it might be hard to give up going to the con as a Top Sponsor but I would love to see the package run the way the guests should have it run! Now it's time to put my money where my mouth is as they say and I have been hired (OK more like volunteered!) to hold the new position of SPONSOR TIER LIAISON. An email went out a couple of weeks ago to former top package people talking about the position but not telling anyone it was me. So now I am officially announcing my presence as the person who is going to do her very best to insure that your VIP experience exceeds all expectations and that you get what you paid for. We Are Borg and I are very excited to be teaming up together to collaborate on perks and merchandise and the overall experience to make sure this is the best Babscon you have ever gone to or if your first, one that you be thrilled that you came to. I want the top tier packages to be so amazing that when the 2018 packages are released they will sell out in a day! I have looked at many other Brony Cons and Babscon by far has the best perk packages going. Now we are going to make it the best experience going. I will be specifically in charge of the top 2 tiers --- PRODUCER PONY and NOBLE PONY. That is not to say I won't have input to make the Crystal Pony or High Society Pony sponsor tiers as wonderful as I can but while at the con I will be at your disposal if you are in PRODUCER AND NOBLE PONY packages. One of the immediate improvements for PRODUCER PONY is going to be choosing which VIP dinner you want to attend IN ADVANCE (first registered first choice- until one is completely booked) and you will know when you register who your meal is with, what time and where. When at the con you will be given my cel phone number and you can text me if you need me. I am your liaison and hostess throughout the con. For all sponsor packages I will be there when you register and picking up your merchandise will be painless. I really have lots of plans but can't get ahead of myself or my boss might yell at me. :-) (He's a sweetheart by the way). If you have anything you would like to see or share with me, please reply to this. We might already be working on what you ask or it might be something we haven't thought of. If you have done the packages in the past years please feel free to share your thoughts. So if you were on the fence about signing on to the sponsor tiers this year let me tell you this is going to be the year to say YES I WILL! There are only FOUR PRODUCER PONY SPONSOR PACKAGES LEFT! There are only 14 NOBLE PONY SPONSOR PACKAGES LEFT! And these packages are still at the Early Bird Prices so now is a great time to decide to go for the gold.

In addition to portraying Starlight Glimmer and Sassy Saddles in Season 5 of My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic, Kelly has a mammoth voice acting resume.

  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OliU0pdrF2k I'm putting it up here, just in case Also, Mare and the Master's TARDIS Adventures is cancelled for the time being.
  12. While all of our guests can be said to make ponies, our newest Guest of Honor, Kora Kosicka, really makes ponies—and more!—as the lead character designer for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls movies. Kora’s been working her magic as a character designer for MLP:FiM since season 3, becoming lead character designer for seasons 5 and 6. She also provided the character concept designs for Equestria Girls, leading the character design efforts for Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games. And she was the character designer for season 1 of Littlest Pet Shop. We’re also excited to say that Kora is only the first of a group of guests that BABSCon 2016 will be announcing from the art and animation departments of the show. Can you wait to learn how all those candy-colored equines go from the spark of imagination to walking and talking on our screens? We can’t! Kora joins Lauren Faust, John de Lancie, Nicole Oliver, Josh Haber, Katie Cook, and Andy Price at the biggest and best BABSCon yet, so don’t miss out: register now. (Art by the terrific TeaTimeJess!) The Bay Area Brony Spectacular (BABSCon) is the first convention devoted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in the San Francisco Bay Area. In our first year, we became the second-largest MLP con anywhere, and we’re back for our third year April 22–24, 2016 at the SFO Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA.

  13. The odds are ever in our favor, tributes, as the one and only Josh Haber has joined the BABSCon 2016 guest list just in time for the savagery known as “Black Friday!” Since joining My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic last season, Josh has written some of our favorite episodes, including “Castle Mane-ia,” “Leap of Faith,” and “Bloom and Gloom.” His episode, “Simple Ways,” even gave the world what Meghan McCarthy said “might be [her] favorite Rarity performance ever.“ Oh yeah, he also wrote a little thing you might have heard of called My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Friendship Games. With his warmth and geeky savoir-faire, Josh will help make BABSCon 2016 a rousing success, joining a guest list that already includes Lauren Faust, John de Lancie, Nicole Oliver, and IDW Comics artist Andy Price, so don't forget to pre-register now. And watch this space for for some big Black Friday weekend announcements. You won’t want to miss out! Reminder: BABSCon is still taking panel and event applications and looking for some killer beats for NEIGHhem. Show us that you’re up to the challenge of helping make this year’s BABSCon better than ever.

  14. Hold on to your hooves, because the one and only Lauren Faust is coming to BABSCon 2016! Lauren needs no introduction, but just in case you do want to be dazzled by her résumé, she was the woman who developed My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for TV. An accomplished, Emmy Award-winning animator, writer, director, and producer, Lauren has also worked on popular television shows like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, The Powerpuff Girls, and Wander Over Yonder, and helped animate films including The Iron Giant and Cats Don’t Dance. In 2014, she joined Sony Pictures Animation to develop and direct the animated feature film, Medusa, and she’s currently the lead character designer and scenarist for the upcoming indie video game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds. Lauren has long been recognized as an advocate of empowering young girls by providing them with engaging and worthwhile media content. The success of her creative ventures is proof that inspired storytelling and multi-dimensional characters can transform “girls’ entertainment” into a powerful cultural medium for delving into the full spectrum of human experience. To celebrate this amazing opportunity, if you purchase your membership between now and midnight Sunday, you’ll get 10% off with promo code FAUSTICORN!

  15. Pull up those sleeves and get planning for BABSCon because Vendor, Panelist, and Musician applications are now open! We’re looking for the thinkers, performers, and entrepreneurs among you to help us bring the awesome to BABSCon 2016! Have a notion for a panel that has a novel “canter” to it? Toss us a panel application that details your potential demo, discussion, or Q&A! Are you an established musical type skilled in the use of a ukulele… or the latest version of the Pioneer DDJ-SR Performance controller? Enter an application to have your chance at rocking it out during BABSCon’s NEIGHhem! Or perhaps you’ve created a line of one-of-a-kind crafts that span the purview of pony and beyond. The outcome might involve a sudden emptying of wallets, but you, as a potential vendor, can walk away with the satisfaction of success! Remember, the more fleshed out and novel the premise you bring us, the better chance you have of breaking through the crowd and leaving your mark this coming April. Do note that all submissions for Vendors, Panelists, and Musicians are not selected on a first-come first-served basis, but rather selected based on what will provide the most varied and fun experience for our attendees. So sit down, grab a cup of coffee, and get cracking. The clock. Is. TICKING! *Vendor applications will close on October 31st, 2015. **Panel applications will close on January 15th, 2016. ***Musician applications will close on January 15th, 2016.

  16. We are pleased to announce Andy Price, the incredible My Little Pony Comic artist from IDW, as our next Guest of Honor joining, that’s right, John de Lancie, the voice of Discord, and Nicole Oliver, the voices of Celestia and Cheerilee. Andy has put talent in some of the most memorable MLP:FiM comics of the series, including the comic’s premiere The Return of Queen Chrysalis Arc, the Reflections Arc, and the soon to be released Siege of the Crystal Empire Arc. He’s also been putting ponies to paper for us in the Micro Series, the Friends Forever series and the special edition Villain Backstory Set from this past spring.

  17. Calling all fan-fiction readers, writers, and editors! Poniverse is proud to present the trio behind the original Winningverse fanfiction collection! Each of these eloquent writers have been featured on the coveted Fimfiction feature page. Join us at MLP Forums on September 19, 2015 at 8:00PM CT to 11:00PM CT for a Forum Q&A with Comma-Kazie, Ponibius, and Chengar Qordath! Comma-Kazie is one of Chengar’s strict grammar coaches. His skill with the written English language is akin to a surgeon with a knife. When he’s not tearing apart stories and feeding on the tears of despair, Comma-Kazie busies himself with creating stories such as From the Mouths of Fillies and its sequel Changes. Ponibius contributes his time towards the editing process for Chengar in addition to writing several of his own stories. Twilight Sparkle vs. The Haunted Mailbox is Ponibius’s latest inventive creation. He’s also known for works such as The Study of a Winning Pony and The Incredibly Embarrassing Parents of Rainbow Dash. Author of The Life and Times of a Winning Pony which spawned the Winningverse, Chengar Qordath has written a solid 28 stories coming in at over 1,500,000 words with over 22,000 favorites! Chengar uses his stories to bring background ponies to life such as the flirtatious Cloud Kicker and dedicated Blossomforth as well as a wide array of original characters. He’s written other popular works such as Lunar Rebellion, The Incredibly Dense Mind of Rainbow Dash, and more! Art generously provided by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen.

  23. Hello Poniverse, it's your friendly neighborhood Batbrony! Wait... I think I might be mixing up superheroes. Ah, no matter, guess what I have? The results of the Poniverse Hearts and Hooves Day Contest!!! Thankfully I was able to get through the remaining fics over my Spring Break, so I'm happy to be getting the results out a lot sooner than I was able to with the last contest. Before we begin, as always, a gigantic shoutout to everypony who took the time to write a fic to enter into our contest!!! We had a total of 10 entries this time, and believe me when I say that it was harder to judge this time around than with either of the previous contests, the quality of so many of our entries was that good! Thank you all for doing a great job of getting us in the holiday spirit and providing a wide variety of sweet, funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes downright romantic fan fics. Without further ado, here are the winners of the Poniverse Hearts and Hooves Day Contest!!! Winners First Place: Daring Do(esn't Need a Special Somepony) by Fahrenheit There are so many words I could use to describe our first place winner. Adorable, hilarious, exciting, sweet, stupendously written, these all easily apply to this fic. Daring Do(esn't Need a Special Somepony) is that rare one-shot that just does everything right. It masterfully utilizes the 1st person POV, it capture's Daring Do's character to a T, it features two supporting cast members who we rarely see but deserve to be explored more thoroughly in fan fiction. It also has tons of laughs, adventure, some sweet, fluffy romance when you'd least expect it (despite this being a Hearts and Hooves Day fic ), and just has a really great heart to it overall. I don't want to give away too much since I'd rather readers who haven't checked it out yet do so without any spoilers, but suffice it to say that what starts out as a single-minded quest to retrieve some delectable sweets by everypony's favorite author/adventurer pony turns into so much more (after A LOT of insanity along the way). Perfect's really the only way I can describe this fic in general, and you'll just have to check it out for yourself to see what I mean. Congratulations on your winning entry, Fahrenheit, you most certainly earned it, and thank you so much for such an incredible read! Second Place: Hearts & Hooves Day for Dummies by yellowstripedflutterbat Our second place winner won me over for a number of reasons. For starters, it features Snips and Snails, two of the most (in my opinion) underappreciated supporting characters in the show. Second, it's not really a romantic fanfiction, not in the traditional sense, at least. I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say that this fic highlights a different kind of love, one which MLP itself has done a sound job at times highlighting, just normally with the main cast. Finally, it gets these two characters' personalities down to a T, and the results are humorous, to say the least. We're basically following the intrepid exploits of Ponyville's resident dunderheaded colt duo as they try to "score with the ladies" for Hearts and Hooves Day, and as you can imagine, it's pretty hilarious. But it all ties things up at the end rather sweet, actually, in Snips and Snails own way of course, and just like with our last fic, this one has a lot of heart. All these elements taken together most definitely earned this fic second place, and a big shoutout to yellowstripedflutterbat for the excellent entry! Third Place: Little Filly Blue by Yoshi89 This fic is astounding for two big reasons. First, it's told from the 2nd person POV. That's right, the most loathed POVs in all of fanfiction! Not only that, but it places the reader in the hooves of an adolescent colt who's supposed to develop a crush on Diamond Tiara. Not only is DT one of the most loathed characters in MLP, BUT this could've backfired in so many ways, namely, given that most readers of this would probably be older, it could be quite uncomfortable if written incorrectly going through a fic where you yourself are being written as falling for an adolescent filly. But you know what? IT ALL WORKS!!! I'm not even joking, and that's kind of incredible. The POV works, the characters work, the shipping works, everything just works! What we're given, instead of the train wreck it could've been, is a sweet fic that plays out almost like one of the CMC episodes would if told from a different POV. It's nice seeing Diamond Tiara portrayed in a different light without necessarily being written out of character, plus, again, I simply cannot believe that the 2nd person POV worked here, but believe me, it does, and it is well worth checking out. Congratulations on third place, Yoshi89, you most definitely earned it! Honorable Mentions As I said before, this was the stiffest competition we've had yet, so obviously there's a number of other fics that deserve brief mentioning here given that they were very well-written as well. The Life She Never Received, by Silver Letter, T, the Tiniest Troll, Writes a Love Letter, by Piquo Pie, and Peachy Pie's Very Special Somepony, by VitalSpark. The first was, without a doubt, the most improved entry from an author who has previously entered our other contests, and is a very sad but at the same time heartwarming tale of unreciprocated love that is definitely worth a read; the second is a very uniquely written one-shot, told as, well, a letter by a very interesting OC character, and again, definitely worth a quick read, especially given that it'll only take you 5 minutes tops; the third of these honorable mentions was actually very similar to Hearts & Hooves Day for Dummies in that it follows two seldom-seen characters (even more so than Snips and Snails) who also happen to be adolescents on the hunt for a special somepony for one of them for Hearts and Hooves Day. While, again, none of these quite managed to get into the top 3, they were all still great reads, and if you get the chance, I'd highly recommend reading them. Once again, I also want to thank everyone else who submitted entries as well. I really enjoyed reading through every single one of these fics, even if some were undoubtedly written better than others. It was a joy seeing people turning out to write their own fics, tell their own stories, and present their own interpretations of canon characters we know and love, or even make up their own! I hope we'll see only more of this in the future, and hope that this contest has done a bit to bring our fan fiction community here on MLP Forums and in the greater Poniverse a little bit closer together. Thank you all for your efforts, participation, and most of all, for the fun times I and many other readers have had reading through your work!
  24. With our NEIGHhem concert already bursting with bass dropping talent, we are excited to announce Special Guest, Black Gryph0n! Our mane event for the concerts, Black Gryph0n, (aka Gabriel Brown) is a 25 year old American singer, actor, songwriter and animator who is one of the MLP fandom’s most popular and versatile artists. Musically, Gabe first became known for such songs as Proud To Be A Brony and Paper Sky. As an animator, his “licious” series (Twilightlicious, Rainbowlicious, Pinkalicious,etc) was a huge hit. He is also a popular “reactor” on ACRacebest’s Bronies React series. At the age of 18, Gabe joined the US Navy and was training in special operations when he broke his femur in a sky diving accident. He switched to the Navy’s music department and then spent three years touring the Eastern Hemisphere as lead singer for the 7th Fleet Band’s Orient Express. He was awarded three Achievement Medals as "a superb vocalist/entertainer"; singing in 12 languages and multiple genres during hundreds of engagements. Now separated from active duty with an honourable discharge, Gabe has a full time career as a performing artist with an extensive following around the world. He has released IMmortal, a CD of original songs with his brother Baasik, including hits like Set in Stone, Crusader (Are We There Yet), and Faster Than You Know. After a successful collaborative cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It with Michelle Creber (voice of Apple Bloom), Gabe and Michelle now work as a duo; recording, performing, touring, creating comedy sketches and releasing co-written original songs. Gabe has also officially joined the MLP team, having recorded vocals with Daniel Ingram on several 2015 songs.
