    Trotcon 2013 -  Guest Announcement for Summer Hayes, Emily Jones of Pegasisters Live, and Purple Kecleon




    We’re happy to have caught Purple Kecleon as a featured artist and guest! While her major focus is Pok√©mon art, she’s also been drawing plenty of ponies lately, and will be selling her popular MLP buttons at her table. She will also be hosting a panel about digital speed painting. You can check out her work on DeviantArt, and follow her on Twitter @papayakitty.

    Emily Jones is the host for Everfree Network’s Pegasisters Live! Every week on Sunday at 10 PM EST, her and her wonderful co-host, Sondra Weisberg, go live on Everfree Network as they discuss the latest on everything pony related, share Emily’s favorite remixes, and interview well known community members, writers, animators, and VAs. Aside from her show work, Emily also sings and voices in a few animation roles that will be premiering in 2013 including an album offered to raise money for Kiki’s charity fund! You can find Emily on Twitter @namineahtellai and listen to Emily on her YouTube, FlutterTreeMuffin.

    Summer Hayes will also be joining us! Perhaps best known among pony toy collectors, she is the founder of the original My Little Pony Fair, which is entering its tenth year. Hercollectors’ inventory books have become the reference standard for pony toy collectors. G4 fans might also recognize her from an article in Collectors Weekly last June, where she was interviewed along with Equestria Daily founder Sethisto, and of all people, Andrew W.K. Summer will be bringing some copies of her newest collector’s book to TrotCon.

    Brony Fan Faire 2013


    Prepare for Brony Fan Fair 2013!

    It’s official! Brony Fan Fair 2013 is go! The first-ever brony
    convention in Texas will return to the Lone Star State on September
    13-15, 2013.

    Take a look at that date again and you’ll realize that BFF2013 is
    gonna give you a little extra this year. The convention is now three
    days long! That’s a whole ‘nother day of extra programming to satiate
    your pony needs.

    In addition to the extra day, the BFF staff has taken into
    consideration some ways to improve the convention. We will be
    returning to the Holiday Inn Midtown and will now have access to the
    entire convention floor. This allows for more flexibility when it
    comes to panel planning. Last year, we only had 3/4th of the Main
    Ballroom to work with, but we have added four additional rooms,
    including a lecture hall. This has nearly doubled the size of the
    convention space since Brony Fan Fair 2012, increasing our capacity
    for more people, more events and more pony! We want you to have fun
    and we’re working on giving you an even better pony experience than
    before!

    The BFF staff has also planned a few new things this year, including a
    new gaming room, a FANimation room with 24-hour fan animations and
    PMV’s, and a Very Important Pony (VIP) program.

    Pre-registration starts at $25 till January 25th. On Jan. 26th, the
    price will raise to $30 per ticket and then increase one more time
    before the convention, where on-site registration will be $40. But if
    you’re already planning to go, pre-register now and save yourself some
    money! Help us beat those pre-registration numbers of 300 from last
    year. /)(^3^)(\

    You helped us make BFF 2012 a memorable experience. Now let’s work on
    making the second year even better!


    Everfree Northwest Opens Dealer Registration

    Greetings, dear pony friends!

    We are pleased to announce that registration for Dealer's Tables will open tomorrow, Sunday January 6th at 7PM Pacific TIme. Last year we brought you one of the biggest collections of My Little Pony fan merchandise under one roof, from homemade crafts to a stunning selection of truly unique fan artwork. This year will be no different and that we have more space than ever before to accommodate this year's vendors. A Dealer's Table is priced at $80 and entitles you to a full weekend membership in the convention as well. We also issue Helper Badges, which gives another person of your choosing access to the Dealer's Room and allows them to help sell at your table. Please be advised Helper Badges must be issued to an attendee who has already paid and are not a membership in themselves. For more information, we encourage you to send an email to vendors@everfreenw.com if you have any questions. While we have more space than last year, space for dealers is still limited, so hurry down to www.everfreenw.com tomorrow evening and grab that table. We can't wait to see you all there!
