• Everfree Northwest 2017 is Simply Bursting with Community Guests!

    EFNW is super close now but for those of you still a bit on the fence they have a huge list of community guests that might pique your interest!

    Get them all after the break!

    This year at Everfree Northwest we are excited to welcome dozens of community guests to share their talents with us and our attendees.  From community voice actors, to artists, to writers, to countless other creative ponies, we are happy to have the following joining us for our sixth year of EFNW!  These guests include:

    The ever-shimmering Bloo is a passionate cosplayer an aspiring voice actress. Some of her favorite cosplays include Sunset Shimmer, Princess Celestia, and Sonata Dusk. Originally from Seattle, Bloo travels across the country for different pony conventions, and she is the performer for Bronycon's mascot, Mane Event. She has participated in the Grand Galloping Gala in 2015 as Queen Chrysalis, and she has performed in a multitude of panels alongside Shelbeanie and Sarahndipity. She also has done a few fan voiceacting projects and cover videos. When she isn't working intensively on cosplay, she is either admiring every shibe doge on earth, dyeing her hair crazy colors, or just being your friendly nieghborhood spoop. She also enjoys making videos of cosplay tutorials. To learn more about Bloo, check her out on Facebook and YouTube as "Bloo", and Instagram and Twitter as @littlemissbloo.

    Foal Papers
    Foal Papers is generally recognized as a fairly unremarkable example of Homo sapiens sapiens, though rigorous scientific testing has yet to rule out the distinct possibility that he actually belongs to a subspecies of giant sloth. He enjoys tea and classical mythology, and dislikes writing about himself in the third person. Accordingly, he enlisted the help of his Twitter followers to write this bio, thereby discovering that he is considered to be, among other things: “a wonderful Pony Princess with pretty wings”; “standing right behind you, judging your grammar”; “scarily British, Britishly scary, Scitishly Beary”; “thirty-seven ferrets in a trench coat”; “a snooty pseudo-intellectual with rock-hard abs”; “neither animal, vegetable, nor mineral”; “unable to be properly summed up in words that can be broadcast before the watershed”; “a sentient Jaffa Cake trying to learn the human ways, and doing a quite decent job at it”; “the river Temarc in winter”; “somepony you should always blame”; “turtles all the way down”; and his personal favorite:
    “A small chalet in the Austrian Alps offering unrivaled views of the Halleranger Alm.”
    Given the unerring accuracy of all information reported on the Internet, these details should be considered both factual and beyond contestation.
    His depiction here was drawn from life by Cat Whitney.

    Makers of the critically acclaimed adaptation for ponies into the tabletop setting, using the Pathfinder Roleplaying System, David Silver of Silver Games LLC takes great pride and joy in crafting a unique world for technicolor ponies to survive, thrive, and adventure. Though sharing some queues from the show, the product stands on its own hooves and has become a mythos all its own.

    Dana Simpson
    Dana Simpson was art staff for Everfree Northwest from 2013 to 2015, and created our own Front Page.
    No less significantly, she is the New York Times best-selling creator of the award-winning comic strip, and graphic book series, "Phoebe and Her Unicorn," now syndicated in over 200 newspapers. Before that, she spent ten years drawing the webcomic "Ozy and Millie," and is happy that a number of people still seem to remember that.
    A Seattle native, she now lives in Santa Barbara, California, with her husband, her sister and a couple of black cats.

    Hollulu, or Monica "Holly" Grover, is a full time freelance and convention staff artist from the West Coast, creating a range of different artworks and illustrations for events across the US. Her works also include WeLoveFine My Little Pony licensed merchandise, and an official IDW My Little Pony comic cover variant!

    TheLostNarrator is a YouTuber known for her fanfic reading productions, and specializing in the field of horror and grimdark. She has worked with dozens of YouTube personalities to create full-casted readings of stories, in addition to voicing Rainbow Dash and Applejack in several fan projects. Her voice work has been featured in several fandom animations and projects from A Colt Classic to Pinkie Tales. Though she dwells in darker stories, she is no stranger to comedy as her hilarious blooper reels have had fandom-wide acclaim.

    Magpiepony has tried her hoof in several aspects of the fandom, from writing and directing her own pony productions to voice acting and editing. She runs two major projects: Princess Trixie Sparkle and Pinkie Tales in addition to pony song parodies, baby pony comics and animations, and a myriad of other pony content on her YouTube channel. Magpiepony’s work has garnered over 112 million views and 185,000 subscribers on her main channel alone, along with another 176 million views and 117,000 subscribers on her side channel Pitch and Magpie Productions.

    A native of the West Coast, ImdrunkonTea (or “Tea” for short) is best known for his semi-kinda-quasi-realistic painting style, love of all things geeky, and being mistaken for an elderly British man online. When he’s not painting ponies or magical human pony hybrid things with huge hair, he can be found singing karaoke in his car, watching animated movies, and failing miserably against 13 year olds in multiplayer games. As an airplane engineer by profession, he believes that both technology and art are key to spreading happiness and bringing people together across the globe.
    Oh, and before you ask – the answer is jasmine (tea).
    The Brony Chef
    The Brony Chef is a professional chef that has been creating recipes from the show since 2012. Author of The Brony CookbookThe Brony Cookbook 3 & Mixology is Magic; he has created over 100+ recipes inspired from the ponies on the show.

    Skywriter is for all practical purposes Jeffrey Channing Wells, best known in Internet circles as the co-creator of the award-winning daily webcomic Skin Horse, whose coincidentally equine name is just that. He also writes non-pony fiction, which you should totally check out over at Scrivnarium.net. He quite sensibly views winged ponies as having the best of both worlds, a point which is totally indisputable so don't even try. To sum, up, Ms. Lovingcup Harshwhinny is best pony. Thank you.

    Horizon, who is not a changeling, has been writing and reading MLP fanfiction since 2012. As a Royal Canterlot Library [royalcanterlotlibrary.net] curator, he helps spotlight high-quality ponyfic — and as one of the reigning kings of the Writeoff Association [writeoff.me] scoreboards, he creates award-winning fanfic and original fiction. Among his greatest hits on FIMFiction.net are Thou GoddessFugue StateNo Regrets, and Hard Reset 2: Reset Harder. He lives in rural Northern California, and recently had his stolen car and returned in perfect shape with a free oil change.

    Somber has been a staple of the writing community for MLP for some time, first getting noticed with his story Simply Rarity, and later his monster of a story Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons. He also assists in editing stories, dabbles in writing original fiction when his friends remind him he's a very competent storyteller, and vaguely resembles Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, if he were young and fit.

    Author, Designer & Project Lead of Gardens of Equestria - Novel's been writing since he was five and reading for just a bit longer. A diehard fan of Brandon Sanderson and Terry Pratchett, he's won or placed in a few global writing contests and successfully completed NaNoWriMo for seven years running. When an injury in 2015 forced him to stop writing and reading for a time, he ended up starting Gardens of Equestria, which swelled from a small mod idea into a massive DLC-sized game project. Now able to write once more, he's started building a new story series on FimFiction (as Novel-Idea) called the Wavelengths Timeline, exploring what might have happened if Sunset Shimmer had remained Celestia's student. Novel also makes a hobby of designing covers for various FanFics. He lives in Southern California with his wife and two daughters.

    Titanium Dragon
    TD writes and reviews pony fanfiction, and has a serious RariJack addiction. Send help and/or ponies. TD has been a staple guest of EFNW for the past few years, and always has fun and neat insight into writing.

    Silver Quill
    Part reviewer, writer, comic artist, and all-around nut, Silver Quill’s role is as mixed as his hippogriff character. Actively participating in the fandom since 2012 through fan comics, Silver gained an audience that followed him to YouTube. His After the Fact series takes a comedic look at individual episodes and themes running throughout the series. He serves as an editorial and review contributor to Equestria Daily and recently revived the Pinkie Pie Says Goodnight comic series. Some might call him a horse’s patoot, but they’re just stating biological fact.

    Dr. Wolf
    Greetings and welcome, everyone. I am DRWolf.
    I actually started a Youtube channel to work on my voice acting, but it's still a lot of fun finding what inspires me about MLP. This show and the fandom surrounding it has become rather intriguing. Quite unlike anything that I have come across before.
    Perhaps if you stay awhile, I can help you to find some inspiration too.

    Selfie Pony
    Selfie Snapshots, aka The Selfie Pony, is the community’s Official Princess of Selfies (Larson Approved), better known as that one Brony who became a Legend after taking a whole 1,000 Selfies at Everfree Northwest 2016. Selfie is back to continue her Legendary, never-ending "Selfie Quest" to capture the fun of the con in selfies.
    If you find Selfie wandering around the con obtaining selfies, don’t be shy. Everypony is welcome to help with the Everfree Northwest 2017 Selfie Quest, and everypony who helps gets a “Selfie Card” with their Selfie Number so they can find it online via Twitter, @TheSelfiePony.

    Jadedjynx is an artist within the fandom who is known for her art and her pony fan comic,”My Little Sterelis.” She uses her artistic talent to not only draw for herself, but also provide art for different conventions, including Everfree Northwest!

Be sure to stop by and she will be happy to get to know you and answer any questions you may have!

    Fire Team Harmony, MLP crossed with Halo, once just one man giggling at the pun “Twilight Spartan” in 2014, slowly devolved into a group of friends from across the country, who love MLP and attend conventions ranging from TrotCon in Columbus, OH to Pacific Pony Con in San Diego, CA. They also have appeared on Bronies React, and have been making their own YouTube content, specializing in a unique brand of comedy within the fandom! They still aren’t sure why they’re so popular, but they’re just having fun, doing what they’re best at.
    Twilight Spartan, the team’s Commanding Officer and founding member, tries his best to keep all the troops in line and focused on the mission at hand. He’s known to relax by the pool and sip on a drink, while also trying to read a book.
    Spartan Luna, the team’s Executive Officer and founding member, is not what you’d call the brightest Spartan, and not just because their armor is dark blue. They can be regularly be seen wandering around lost, confused, and generally hungry. But they are pretty benign, and generally friendly.
    RD Spartan, the team’s Chief of Operations, and third in command, is a gruff and regimented Spartan, who has been known to leave their phone off to avoid getting called in for work.

    Maddymoiselle is a cosplayer, artist, actress, and general happy person!

    Sarahndipity, a part-time party princess and cosmetologist, prides herself on being a mermaid, making puns, and being completely composed of glitter and sprinkles.

If you wish to know more about Sarah, check her out @sarahndipitycosplay on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube!

    As a fan of the show since late 2011, Igor has two long term goals in the fandom. The first is to create fashionable formal-wear accessories with which to allow ponies to be brought into nearly any working environment, and through this to ever so slowly elevate the fashion of the fandom at large. This may be a slow process, but it's certainly a worthwhile one. Now with the addition of a laser, the inexhaustible pursuit of lasering ponies on all sorts of things is in full swing as well.
    The second, accepting the inevitable AI singularity and our eventual cybernetic overlords, is to help make sure that there is pony present there as well. To this end, he has built a virtual reality simulation of Ponyville, with close to a hundred AI ponies and a slowly expanding series of quests. A demo of this fledgling virtual world will be running at his vendor hall table via an Oculus Rift and the magic that is modern technology. Donning the headset, it is possible for anyone to temporarily abandon their current existence and take on the form of a diminutive equine avatar.

    C. Allan Gann
    A goddess mother and her adopted daughter clash, as do the waking and dream worlds they rule, leaving the inhabitants very lives to hang in the balance. The result of this chaos causes everymare to develop unique alter-egos, which struggle for dominance and lead them on light and dark-hearted adventures through both night and day.
    The Midnight Mares creator C. Allan Gann developed this series as a "young adult" offering to other mainstream animated cartoons, and the full-length trailer was successfully funded by "Brony-Backers" through Kickstarter in 2015 and the comic book in 2016. At the "Midnight Mares" booth, C. Allan Gann will be signing autographs and his team will be selling limited edition collectible plush and resin toys, as well as selling the first comic book issue!
    His daytime job involves running "Gann Memorials Custom Plush Toys", which has previously manufactured 4DE's "My Little Pony" toys, along with mascot plushies for BronyCon, Ponycon NYC, BABSCon, TrotCon, Super Speedy Cider Con, BronyCAN, UK Ponycon, and our very own 2017 Everfree Northwest collectible plushies!
    C. Allan will be moderating a Midnight Mares panel (with new animation and comic book discussion) along with a separate custom toy-making panel!
    The first 50 panel attendees will receive an exclusive free gift!

    What more can be said about the man? Poet, artist, voice actor, athlete, curmudgeon, and all around teddy kitty. And if you believe all that, he has a bridge in Trotingham to sell you. Dustykatt is many things, he’s been in documentaries about the Brony phenomenon. Done acting in a student film, been in a Metallica music video for their latest album. Built custom motorcycles, made guitars with his bare hands, trained as a professional wrestler and competed in college athletics. All of this might make him very manly, but none of it makes him as proud as when he raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities around the world when he auctioneers at conventions. Or when he helps those affected by bullying as he once was as a child. You can see him in the ever popular Bronies React series on Youtube, voicing characters in various fandom animation projects as well as cooking on his own popular channel. Just search “Manliest Brony in the World”
