It’s time to whip out those vocal exercises because back this April, is Season 2 of The Voice: Equestria! We challenge you to show us what you’ve got in that mouth of yours, in the ultimate contest of audible creativity. Make it to the final round and the woman of a 1,000 voices herself, Tara Strong and her friends get to hear your vocal talent, on stage, in lights, in front of a live audience at BABSCon. But we don’t want to hear your best impressions of Twilight or Pinkie, we want your own characters out of your own head. That’s right, we want your OCs. So, do you have what it takes to impress Tara and our other Guests of Honor?

 

If you, brave and talented soul, are attending BABSCon this April and wish to enter, submit to us a short YouTube video of yourself strutting your stuff and that wicked tongue of yours, then tweet a link of that video to @babsconsf w/ hashtag #TheVoiceEquestria , or post to our Facebook, to grab the pre-contest judges’ attention. Finalists will be chosen to compete and perform in front of a panel of our Guests of Honor for the grand prize and the title of being The Voice of Equestria.

 

The Rules:

 

  1. You must be attending BABSCon in person and be 18 or over to be eligible.

  2. To enter, upload a video to YouTube (or similar service) of no more than 3 minutes in length displaying your range as a VA* (Note: This is NOT “mimic as many ponies from MLP:FiM as possible”…we want distinct characters with a variety of pitches, tonalities, accents, etc.).

  3. Tweet a link of your video to @babsconsf with the hashtag #TheVoiceEquestria, or post to our Facebook, to submit it, and send an email to pr@babscon.com with your name, BABSCon badge name, email address, and phone number.

  4. Our staff will select finalists from the submissions to compete on stage, live at BABSCon, where Tara Strong herself plus two more of the show's VAs will audition you!

  5. Finalists from The Voice: Equestria Season 1 are not eligible.

 

We’ll be accepting entries from now until 1/31/15.

 

*By submitting an entry for The Voice: Equestria, you grant BABSCon permission to use your video, or any portion of it, for promotional purposes, though ownership of the video remains yours.

 

We also have some bittersweet news for you. Due to his RAW ACTING TALENT, John de Lancie will be reprising his role in a theatrical production of the play, Mr. Wolf, whose run includes the weekend of BABScon 2015. He returns to his role as the title character which he played at the 2014 Pacific Playwrights Festival last April. The run was so successful, that they called him back for a longer run in 2015:

 

“Unfortunately, and with much disappointment on his part, John de Lancie must postpone his appearance at BABSCon until 2016 due to a work conflict that has just arisen. He has been cast in an exciting play, which will be in preparation and performance during the period of the convention. He truly regrets he won’t be able to attend the show in 2015, but he looks forward to 2016. Imagine how many more tales he will have to tell by then! As soon as the official announcement of his appearance in the play is announced, we will post the link here. He would love to see some MLP fans at the play (it is called Mr. Wolf and is a really great role for John!). He sends his best wishes and will see you all in 2016 at BABSCon!”

 

See? It’s not all bad. Mr. de Lancie is excited to appear at BABSCon in 2016, plus BABCon has been presented with the opportunity to book even more of the fantastic people that bring us the magical world of Equestria and My Little Pony into our lives! And starting now, we plan to announce new guests and contests every 5 days! Discord or not, BABSCon 2015 will be bigger and better than ever! And don’t forget, you could be our next big VA on stage with The Voice: Equestria. The competition starts now!

 

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 second year April 3–5, 2015 at the SFO Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA.

Yeah, that's really unfortunate. De Lancie was the main attraction and was my main reason for wanting to go. I am seriously disappointed.

Me too. He was the original reason for me to come from across the country. I'm still going to come this year and hope I can afford to do it next year.

As much as it would've been so awesome to finally meet de Lancie, I can understand why he can't make it...still not happy about it...

Did you get the expensive Crystal Pony badge? That was supposed to get you entry into some kind of dramatic reading he was doing. Anyway, all of us in that category won't be able to get the full value of our expensive badges and there is no way they can make up for not having their main attraction. I'm sure they don't even care. Unless we in the expensive tiers all demand our money back.

No, I only paid the basic as that is what I could afford right now.

We care a great deal. We have based a great deal of the convention's theme around JDL that we now have to redo. In addition seeing our attendees such as yourself being upset is upsetting to us. The dramatic reading wasn't actually in our original plan as a tier reward. When it was discovered much later that JDL wanted to give his dramatic reading we thought that our up tier memberships shouldn't have to pay for anything additional. If you feel there is something more we can add to the membership to make up for it, I am very open to suggestions.

Well, I didn't know that. I also know it's not BabsCon's fault that Mr. De Lancie had to go do something else. That's why I'll still go to the con. I don't want to punish anyone. But I still only decided to go in the first place because of De Lancie. I just can't go to every single convention so a rare guest of honor that even I've never met was very intriguing. I am not really sure if there can be anything done about that if it was just an unplanned extra anyway. I would probably like it if it was possible for a few more slots in the High Society tier to be made and me to be downgraded into it instead of the Crystal one. I would just be more comfortable in that place I guess since I had that for the first con. It's only because a good amount of value in the badge has fallen and I wouldn't have paid for it otherwise. If there's any strings that can be pulled, I would be grateful for it. But I know you guys are trying so thanks anyway.

what is stopping you from trying out.

I am in the Crystal Pony as well, but i got the badge the day JDL was announced. My reason was i had High Society last year and i make it a goal to try and do one better (pass wise) each year. 

now i thought originally one of the perks was two pocket plushies, one Golden Gates and one Silver (something)

Still would kill to go to Babscon, just for the sole purpose of meeting Tara Strong. It's a shame, that he won't be attending Babscon though. To those, who really wanted to meet De Lancie, would any of you go to Everfree, as well, as Babscon, or is it too much money to do both?

For some people (like myself) whom are traveling across the US for this con making two trips is a bit of a problem; however I know some people whom are on the west coast go to both.
