    MLP Creators Lauren Faust and Bonnie Zacherle to Attend Ponycon NYC

    Ponycon is delighted to announce our special guests Lauren Faust and Bonnie Zacherle, creators of My Little Pony and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Faust's and Zacherle’s appearance at the fourth annual Ponycon will be a special opportunity for fans the world over to show their appreciation and passion for their work. Ms. Faust and Ms. Zacherle will be on stage for interviews and panel discussions about their work on MLP as well as current projects and future plans. Both will be available for autographs and photos.

    Lauren Faust's acclaim stems from her talent, dedication and passion — she created unique, imaginative universes the way she wanted to, trailblazing a path to Equestria for millions. "I've always looked at my work feeling like I was trying to make stuff for girls," says animator Lauren Faust, "and then accidentally getting guys interested as well."

    Bonnie Zacherle is best known as the original creator of the best-selling My Little Pony toy line. While working R&D for Hasbro in the 1970s she achieved a patent for a miniature toy horse with brushable hair that became My Pretty Pony in 1981, and My Little Pony one year later. Zacherle has been celebrated as the Special Guest of Honor at the 2nd annual Ponycon convention, and she is delighted to return for this year’s fete.

    Lauren Faust and Bonnie Zacherle will also be the keynote speakers at our exclusive Celebrity Banquet joined by the rest of the guest talent from the show and fandom. Gourmet dinner, an exclusive presentation and fabulous finery will be presented at the Grand Prospect Hall. Àl a carte tickets for the Celebrity Banquet event will be available on our website at 8pm tonight. Diamond and Celestial VIP ticket levels will have the banquet included with their registration.

    Early Pegasus tickets are still available at $55, the lowest price they will be for this year’s event and only a few still remain.
