    VA Recuitment for Twilight Sparkle!

    Some copy paste:

    I’m looking for someone to voice Twilight in this project, as I clearly cannot sound like a woman (worth a try.) Now, what are the requirements? Well, obviously you gotta sound like her, but you also need to convey her emotions well. I recommend reading through White Box again and getting a feel for both the atmosphere and emotions that are in the project. To audition, send in a voice sample to Mr.NohbdyXIIIth@gmail.com with the subject of Twilight VA audition. Reading lines from the story is good, as is improve, but remember to be in character. Be sure to introduce yourself as well, otherwise I won’t know who to give credit to, and thats no good.

    ScrewAttack Reviving SGC

    The good folks over at ScrewAttack who have brought us Rainbow Dash vs. Starscream is looking to start up the SGC convention again, but need some help in getting that together. While the convention is for all gamers, they hope to have a strong brony presence at the convention and would like to invite MLP related personalities to the convention! Check out their Kickstarter link in the copy paste below:

    "I'm emailing about a convention ScrewAttack is currently reviving: SGC. Long story short, we held it in 2009 and 2010 with an extremely positive reception, but unfortunately it grew so big our small staff couldn't juggle it alongside the website. BUT we've had so many SGC requests we've decided to try to stage a SGC comeback in 2013 using Kickstarter. You can see more about it here: Kickstarter Link

    Of course, our goal of $100,000 is pretty hefty, so we're looking to earn as much support as we can get. While SGC is a party for all gamers, we have a strong group of bronies among our community and would like to appeal to them. Should the goal be met, green-lighting SGC, we plan on using some of the funds to invite several MLP related personalties like Tara Strong to the event and have various panels and such.  We want to make sure this is properly conveyed to the brony community, and obviously Equestria Daily would be the ideal place to present it.  We would love any help you can provide in helping getting the word out about the SGC Kickstarter."

    Bronies at Otakon

    Copy Paste:

    Why can't the frame hold all these Bronies?!?!  I can't take credit for the photography, but this was Friday's MLP cosplay photoshoot at Otakon.  Saturday was just as big and I'd wager we ran into at least 2-3 times this many Bronies at the convention in and out of costume.  Songs were sung, dance parties were formed, gifts were given and swag was procured!  There are a ton of DC and NYC Bronies in there, but people came from all over the place!
