• BABSCon 2020 Finds A New Hope in Grey DeLisle-Griffin

    Another guest for all of you to meet has been confirmed for BABSCon. Head on down below for the details!

    BABSCon is truly embracing the spirit of “…and BEYOND!” this year by bringing its My Little Pony fans an unusual, but nonetheless stellar, new guest. We present to you a true Rebel Princess of voice acting: Grey DeLisle-Griffin!

    To call Grey a star of animation doesn’t do her justice. Roles such as Azula in Avatar: the Last Airbender; Asajj Ventress and Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Clone Wars; the titular Mandy on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy; Lana, Lola, and Lily Loud in The Loud House; and the iconic Daphne Blake in Scooby-Doo (since 2000), plus her over 1,500 other roles, should be enough to cement her bona fides. “But why invite her to a con focused on Friendship is Magic?” we hear you ask.

    In part, because a VA of her stature loved MLP so much, she freely donated her voice to the fan animation, “Epic Rage Time,” as Derpy. In part, because she’s BFFs with Tara Strong and has worked so often with folks like Tara, Lauren Faust, and others that she’s practically family: Wonder Woman in DC Super Hero Girls to Tara’s Batgirl & Harley Quinn (creator: Lauren Faust, story editor: M.A. Larson, with episodes by G.M. Berrow & Cindy Morrow), Frankie Foster in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends (produced & story-edited by, and character based on Lauren Faust), evil babysitter Vickie to Tara’s Timmy Turner in Fairly Oddparents, Puppycorn to Tara’s Unikitty in Unikitty, twins Todd & Ty McNulty to Tara’s Dil Pickles in Rugrats…you get the idea.

    So let’s give a warm brony welcome to Grey as she joins Nicole Oliver, Peter New, and Gail Simone among our Guests of Honor, with many more yet to come. You’re not going to want to miss this rare chance to see another star of this magnitude at our little soirée by the Bay.

    Register now, then book your hotel room, and prepare to blast off with us this coming April 10-12 to BABSCon…and BEYOND!
