    Nightmare Nights Dallas Announces Jenn Blake!

    Nightmare Nights Dallas is proud to announce our second guest of honor, IDW comic artist Jenn Blake!

    Born and raised in California, "Baroness von Blake" originally studied to become a successful fashion designer. She spent 12 years in the profession, but wanted to broaden her horizons and take her art in a new direction, so she started to work on comic/graphic novel characters and added in a new love of hers: "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". Shortly after she began her work with ponies, Jenn was approached by IDW Limited. Their special release, "The Return of Queen Chrysalis", was in the works, and they were seeking special artists to create original, hand-drawn sketch cards to be released with the books. Jenn was one of a select few artists chosen for the task.

    This special project rocketed Jenn's career in the world of art and ponies forward, leading to this summer's "My Little Pony: Friends Forever #16" and a special subscription cover for Four Color Grails.  She has done signings at many Free Comic Book Day events and various comic book stores, been a part of several WizardWorld Comic Con shows, and been a featured guest at several conventions.  Jenn has also been involved in collaboration work with the online comic "Albert the Alien" and is featured as a guest artist in the newly released book.

    We look forward to hosting Jenn this fall in Dallas!

    We're only getting started on our announcements for this October, so get ready for more exciting guest news here in the near future.

    In other news, our vendor applications are open until June 20th and can be accessed here:

    TrotCon 2015 - Musician and Vendor Announcement

    We’ve done quite a few VIP guest announcements lately, most of whom work on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Let’s change it up a bit, yeah?

    Every year, we bring you some of our favorite vendors, artists and musicians from within the brony community out to TrotCon so they can do their, you know, thing — whether that’s sell you their lovely wares, draw you a pic of your OC suplexing Guy Fieri through a table, create lovely music for your listening pleasure, or maybe all three if they’re particularly ballin’.

    This year is no different! Today, we’d like to announce the official lineup for our 2015 concert/rave, as well as the full list of vendors in our Artist Acres!

    First, the music: get ready, because just like last year, we’ll be starting the tunes on Friday night with a mini show to get you warmed up. Then we’ll ramp things up Saturday, first with a set from our two full bands, then we’ll get back into rave mode for the rest of the evening.

    Who’s playing? For the third year in a row, Odyssey Eurobeat, known to many of you as Eurobeat Brony, will be part of the festivities, and we’re also bringing out Chang31ing, Aftermath, Mogul Dash and Green Tinted Goggles, all of whom have been with us since the first TrotCon concert back in 2013. KnifePony, Steven A.D. and the Shake-Ups in Ponyville are also former TrotCon performers coming back for 2015.

    In addition to them, we’ll have quite a few first-timers, among them BluNoseReindeer, The Wonderbolts, Notica, IvoryBrony, Starlight, StrachAttack, (The) R3ctifier and DJ pinkamenaX! Far out, dudes.

    We’ve been slowly revealing the vendor list for 2015, but now the full list is available! You already knew about Pirate Dash’s Treasures, Chocolate Pony and Equestria Tarot, KefkaFloyd Prints & Art, Tsitra360 and the like–now, how about our newest, including Aleximus Prime’s Art, the New Gray Mare and many, many more? Get the full list over on our website, yeah?

    Now we just need to get our panelist lineup in order, and then suddenly this is gonna be looking like a ready-to-go convention. We’re stoked. We hope you are, too.

    Come hang at TrotCon 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Columbus North in Columbus, Ohio, from July 17-19! Badges are still available through next month, $45 for the full weekend, with sponsor badges also available.
