Her Royal Majesty and our favorite teacher, Nicole Oliver has been announced to come to BronyCon. All titles aside, Nicole is really cool in real life, but try not to ask her stupid questions. The full press release is after the break. More info on this and the rest of the cons is right over here.
Thanks to the Indiegogo campaign that was launched a while back, the BronyDays team based in Paris have been able to confirm their first guests for the convention scheduled this October. M.A. Larson – writer of excellent episodes like ‘Sonic Rainboom’ and that one where Twilight morphs or something – will travel across the Atlantic to visit the convention and be blamed for everything in French. Also announced is JanAnimation, probably the best non-official animator out there who’s created videos for ‘Picture Perfect Pony‘ and the ‘Let’s Meet The Bronies‘ song from the documentary.
This is a very strong first announcement from the con team and they promise more guests to be announced as more funds are gathered. If you want to help out, and get some brill goodies in return, hit up their Indiegogo page and donate what you can!
To those who keep up with the MLP comic series, there are currently 7 issues out of the main series and there’s about to be 4 issues of a micro-series that focuses on specific characters and isn’t related to the primary story arcs of the main series. Issue #5 will focus on Pinkie Pie, and will be coming out this June at some point.
To those who will be attending Botcon this year, there is an opportunity to show off brony pride by getting an exclusive cover from the convention (shown above). As you can see, Pinkie Pie is dressed up as Optimus Prime (we shall dub her Optimus Pie) in the hand of Optimus Prime. Want a chance at something that’s truly quite rare? Better go to Botcon!
