Midwestria Convention

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies Sep 15 2012 · 711 views

Today marked the kick-off of the first Chicago-area brony convention, Midwestria 2012!

Holy crud. It's been amazing so far. Despite the fact that I only got to arrive pretty late in the evening, due to my job.

It's about 3:30 AM right now so I'll just recap a couple things and then go to bed.
  • MLP:FiM writers M.A. Larson, Amy Keating Rogers, and Cindy Morrow are in attendance, and just kind of hanging out with everyone
  • Not a lot of custom merch, unfortunately, but I'm sure I'll end up with at least one plushie and hat by the end of the con
  • Both M.A. Larson and Amy Keating Rogers participated in karaoke. Multiple times. They're pretty good singers!
  • Hangin' out around Final Draft and Joe Stevens of Everfree Radio
  • M.A. Larson randomly started talking to me, and challenged me to go up and sing an MLP song on stage. (Tomorrow, since the karaoke queue was full tonight)
  • Sweet Celestia, M.A. Larson himself is challenging me to sing karaoke (which I have never done in my life) of a Pony song.
  • He also wants me to sing one of Amy Keating Rogers' songs, like Smile or At The Gala, so she can hear it because she will be there.
  • Went to a rave. Like an actual rave. WITH GLOWSTICKS. AND LASERS. It was dubsteppy and pretty fun, though tiring.
  • Hung out with a bunch of my local brony friends afterwards and we hung out and played card games until 2 AM
  • oh my gosh there are still two days left of this
So yeah.

I'm going to bed now so I can get up early and spend THE ENTIRE DAY at the con tomorrow.

It sounds like BrickFair, but with ponies.

It sounds like BrickFair, but with ponies.

BrickFair didn't have a RAVE though.

Next time I'm totally bringing glowsticks.

Is there any way we could possibly convince Lee Tockar to attend as well? He DID play Teridax in the movie...
