• BABSCon 2022 Finds A New Hope in Grey DeLisle-Griffin

    BABSCon has another special guest announcement for their upcoming April convention, this time grabbing a VA who has done a whole host of work in the animation industry, along with a fandom classic: Epic Rage Time.

    Go read about it below if you want to attend!

    On BABSBomb Day 3, it’s time to really go “…and BEYOND!” We’re bringing our 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!

    (Check out her awesome announcement video here!)

    To call Grey a star of animation doesn’t do her justice. Roles such as Azula in Avatar: the Last Airbender; Lady Briarwood in The Legend of Vox Machina; 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: She’s been 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. In part, because she’s GREY DELISLE-GRIFFIN, and ‘nuff said,

    Grey joins Guests of Honor Nicole Oliver, Vincent Tong, Peter New, Devyn Dalton, Brian Doe-Chua, Andy Price, Jeremy Whitley, and Dana Simpson, with a couple more yet to come.

    So register now and book your hotel room for April 15–17, when we’re going BEYOND!

    PS: We can always use more volunteers. Get fed all weekend, get free swag, have lots of fun. You know you wanna…
