    Sweet Apple Acres Convention in Nashville TN Announced

    Announcing a brand new con for those who needed it. Sweet Apple Acres Convention is a brand new con for the Brony fandom! Located in Nashville, TN, the 2013 con has already shown it's power, gaining over 100 "likes" on Facebook only with soft release from the Bronies' Facebook page.

    The current date for this con will be July 12-14 2013, well into the summer circuit where many will not have to worry of the hustle and bustle of school. Not to mention that, with over a year's notice, it gives the attendees a cheaper hotel rate, a better chance to save up, and helps the staff know what the fans really want.

    That's right, we want your opinion! So, head on over to http://www.facebook.com/SweetAppleAcresCon or www.sweetapplecon.com and tell us who and what YOU want to see at Sweet Apple Acres. Ya know, besides yourself.

    Keep calm and Brony on!

    Trotcon Costume Contest

    Got a knack for making costumes? No? Well, enter our cosplay contest anyway! We encourage anypony, at any level, to compete and participate in this event with your best pony costumes! Signups will be on Saturday of the con, and once you’re signed up, please show up one hour before Masquerade, where you will be judged on your costume and then be seated in the green room until showtime. During the show, you'll be asked to walk on stage to show off your duds, and afterwards, prizes will be given out for the following categories:
    • Best Craftsmanship: any costume that was completely made from the costumer's skill, and does not include any pre-made or store-bought items.
    • Best Personification/Humanized: the pony we believe best translated the character they're cosplaying as. This includes the use of any "found items" -- that is, items purchased from a retail store. This also includes any craftsmanship, and even can include your personality!
    • Best Fursuit: any full-body costume made to represent a more literal translation of the character (sometimes also known as a "mascot" suit)
    • If we have any entrants that are youngin's, we'll be more than happy to open up a children's award as well.

    Announcing Odyssey (Eurobeat Brony) for Equestria LA

    Equestria LA is pleased to announce the guest appearance of celebrated brony musician Odyssey!

    Odyssey (a.k.a. Eurobeat Brony, Mortimer, DNA Team, etc.) was one of the first musicians to enter the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic remix scene with his Eurobeat-style series of songs, and has been a staple of the scene ever since, with such hits as “Luna (Dream Mode)” and “Discord (EuroChaos Mix)“. Super Ponybeat remains one of the most popular remix albums of the show, praised by My Little Pony composer Daniel Ingram and popular music magazine Rolling Stone.

    Odyssey is also a prolific force for all things Eurobeat outside of the brony community, appearing on such albums as the Toho Eurobeat series, Most Extreme Ultimate Thunder, the
    Densha De D Soundtrack, Super Eurobeat and many more.

    Be sure to catch him at Equestria LA for a musicians’ panel/Q&A session, autograph signing, and live performance!
