    Nightmare Nights Dallas - Final Community Guests and Dealers Expansion

    Nightmare Nights Announces Foalpapers

    Nightmare Nights, held in Dallas from November 8th through the 10th, is proud to announce a Community Guest! If you’re one of the pony folk active on Twitter, chances are you’ve heard of him: The British gent with the classicist bent, Foalpapers! Foaly will be presenting an abstract of his graduate thesis, which deals with Classical themes in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. If you’re embarrassed to tell your family and friends that you’re heading to a Pony Con for the weekend, you can always tell them you’re going to attend a symposium on Classical images and references in modern media!

    Nightmare Nights Expands Vendor Space & Opens an Artist Alley

    We’re very grateful so many talented artists of all stripes are so looking forward to selling their work to our attendees (and our guests, and each other). However, we were a bit taken aback when our Vendor Room sold out five months before the con. Still, everything’s bigger in Texas, so we just moved it to a larger room! That’s right: we now have an additional supply of vendor tables available for purchase, first-come, first-served. In addition, we’re announcing the opening of our Artist Alley! So, what’s the difference between the Vendor Room and the Artist Alley? We’re glad you asked! The Artist Alley is less expensive, allows tables to be rented by the day, and is open 24 hours a day. The catch is that you cannot erect displays or backdrops behind your table, and you must accept and work on commissions during the convention. Essentially, this gives artists space to work on their commissions until the wee hours, if they so choose. It also helps prevent the Vendor Room from becoming congested as attendees describe the precise color shading of their OCs.
    So join us this November in Addison, Texas with the rest of our guests; Andrea Libman, Peter New, Brenda Crichlow, Sabrina Alberghetti, Jim Miller, James Wootton, Mitch Larson, Pixelkitties, and Sophie Cabra for a fantastic all-ages fan event! Check us out at www.NightmareNights.Net

    DerpyCon South The Pony Music Compo; Toastbeard Now Featuring Spitfire!

    The Pony Music Compo; Toastbeard Now Featuring Spitfire! DerpyCon South and sci team up to bring even more music related goodness to your ears. Partnering up with DerpyCon South's Singopation contest, the theme for this upcoming week's Pony Music Compo is none other than... Spitfire!

    The Pony Music Compo, a weekly event from Toastbeard, is well known as the compo that started it all. A number of pony music legends have participated in Toastbeard in the past, and both experienced and new/aspiring musicians are encouraged to take part and submit their entries for a chance to be featured in both Toastbeard and Singopation.

    In case you missed the memo last time, Singopation is a contest being held by DerpyCon South where one lucky musician will have the chance to perform a Spitfire themed song of their own creation alongside special guest Anneli Heed. This marks Anneli's very first appearance at an American convention, so you don't want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to perform your song live this October at DerpyCon South! Check out both contests at;



    Singopation's deadline has been extended to the end of July. This theme for Toastbeard will last from July 20th to July 27th
