-----

Cloudsdale Congress's primary mission is to organize an outstanding convention for the community, bring together the Eastern US Bronies in order to promote exceptional community members, and encourage a sense of unity among individual Brony community groups.

We have worked very hard to put together a convention experience like no other. We have special guest appearances by Michelle Creber and Lee Tockar. Come get autographs, ask a few questions, and get a chance to connect with them if you meet in the convention hall.

We also have some amazing panels scheduled. Saturday will include our VA panel, Fanbuilt panel run by Lee Tockar, Fallout Equestria Radioplay, a screening of the first half of Double Rainboom, the Musician Q&A Panel, Brony Health group, Equestrian Self Defense, a dance panel, and closing out the day with a kick-flank concert. Saturday will also host a lounge where you can unwind with acoustic performances by many of our talented musicians, as well as pony karaoke for those brave enough. Sunday will include a concert by Michelle Creber, as well as our cosplay workshop, a charity auction, and a few others throughout to ensure there's not a slow second.

Community musicians will include AdditiveSubtractive, Coconeru, Cyril the wolf, dbPony, Dj Macgramaman, Echelon, EHT, EletricKasplosion, F3nning, ForestRain, HollowPoint, IbeaBronyRapper, JoaftheLoaf, M_Pallante, MRPPony, Poni1Kenobi, SGT Whip, SIlva Hound, Smor3s, Starborne, and DJ Tetsuo

Our artists hall will feature the works of: Alyssa M. Torres Art, Coventry Decor, Red Star East, Fanatical Factory, Corsair’s Boutique, Britzy Doodle, BLUE/a/bad’s Ponies and Swag, Squidbombed, Darkkon13, Epik Rainbows, Kate’s Pony Art, J&K Crafting, Ninja Pinkie, Hey Look! A SIGN!!!, Enigmatic Inkworks, Starlight Twinkle’s Stitch n’ sketch, Samszym Art, Vina’s Geek Corner, and Cat and Tonic Industries. Plushies go quick, so get in early. We will also have a table for Michelle Creber, who will be selling CDs as well as a shared table for our musicians who will be selling their own CDs.

Tickets are currently selling for $45 but will be $50 at the door so register today to save yourself some money!

We hope to see you there!

    I had lots of fun meeting everyone, even if it did mean I had 2 hours of sleep total.

      I'd say I am not inane and come up with a whole narrative as to why. But considering I habitually travel from NY to DC just for meetups, I'd say your right. LOL

      God this group is awesome.

    So I was told there would be a YouTube channel where we could view videos taken of the panels. Where can I find that?

    I can't believe we held a con! Yay!

      My sentiments exactly...I think I'd believe it more if I'd been there. But wow...we really did it!

      It is a thing, that really happened, and really succeeded.

    Well organized, fit to the schedule, not overcrowded, and had a great time. The stage sound and leveling could have been better for the music set, but it still turned out okay.

    March 12, 2013

    • Tim "DJ H.

      Yeah, the sound guys explained that for some reason they were bypassing the graphic EQ box entirely on Saturday night. Might explain a few things! And I agree with improving monitoring and stuff. I Could barely hear myself over everyone else, but we did kind of rush things.

    I think this was the best DC Brony meetup EVER!... So far.

    I really hope this becomes an annual con.

  • TekFaux

    Had a great time, met a lot of great people, had great roommates, and bought some great stuff! What more could I ask for?

    CONgratulations on this one, I had more fun than I did at bronycon summer. This was a pleasant surprise that seemed to come from no where. It was nice seeing you DC area bronys and hope to make it down to the area to see you at some point in the future. More importantly, someone lost a plushy in my room (which was 107). If you know someone who lost a plushy at all during the con tell them to e-mail me at [masked] and if that doesn't work have them send me an IM on meetup.

    Hope to see you guys again soon.

    I had a terrific time at CloudCon and made a little money while doing so, which is a. Plenty of vendors selling a variety of things, plenty of entertaining people to talk to, and plenty of fun all around. Even the unexpected stuff was on-the-whole unexpectedly awesome.

    4 · March 11, 2013

    • Prism

      Indeed.

      March 12, 2013

  • Brian E.

    I’m sure I’m the zillionth pony to say this, but “Great job guys!” It was a lot of fun. I hope this point gets picked up within the fan community (come on EQD; no post on Cloudcon, yet?), because I think Cloudcon really demonstrates the viability of modest, fan-centric cons – this is not to take away from the special guests, whom I think were good fits for the overarching philosophy of Cloudcon (e.g. Lee Tockar), but the musical talent and the Double Rainboom team really made the event memorable .

    Thanks to everyone that helped make this happen! (Also, on a side note: Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned not to try and get inbetween Starborne and the con poster in an auction. :) )

    Ok guys I want your honest opinion about my panel good or bad I would love any feedback so can make my panel better

      Bet it was awesome. I doubt anypony here would say neigh to that.

      March 12, 2013

  • Geoffrey A.

    Hi everypony!

    A friend of mine was a vendor at Cloudsdale Congress last weekend. He took a commission for a "Godfather" inspired picture of Twilight Sparkle.

    I'm not certain on the details here, but when he had the customer log her contact info into Adobe Illustrator's Metadata. Unfortunately this was the one time AI didn't save that data, and now my friend has lost her information.

    He doesn't want to pocket the money - worse, he truly wants the customer to have her artwork.

    If you all could spread the word, I would really appreciate it.

    Incredible!!! This was the most fun I've had at a Con EVER!

  • James O.

    I haven't had this much fun at a con since Katsu '02.

    March 11, 2013

  • Rodrigo O.

    OK, now that I've somewhat recovered from sheer exhaustion, I can give my take on the con. In a nutshell, INCREDIBLE! After hearing about and going to so many "busy" cons, it was so neat and refreshing to come back to something a little more on the calm and quiet side. Yet that didn't take away from the fact that there was always something cool and exciting happening at some point during the con. Wish I could have been there for Sunday's ongoings, but alas my busy schedule required me to leave early. But you can bet that the time that I was there, I enjoyed everything.

    2 · March 11, 2013

    • Engineer B.

      YES!!! That is exactly what we were going for with keeping it small. There really is a niche for that. I even feel a little overwhelmed about our DC meetups when they approach 100.

      March 11, 2013

    • Rodrigo O.

      Yet you all manage to handle it so well. After handling large meetups, I guess moving up to a con was the next step. And it was done so well. You were definitely missed there, but be assured the whole thing was stellar. Hope you're well. :)

      March 11, 2013

    I loved every minute that I was there. Just wish I could've stayed longer if I didn't have to watch my dog while my parents went out that evening.

    I had a great time! This was my 1st MLP con and will not be my last. Staffing did take away from the con experience but not by much. CC 14 is sure to be a great con and I hope to return!

    Thank you so much! The con was fantastic, and I had a blast performing my set :)

  • Bill C

    Despite some slightly self-derpy moments (Not getting finishing a MLP cosplay, leaving early on Saturday thinking I could get mugged on the way to the metro {late night + fancy looking cosplay = paranoid}, getting to the con late and without a badge on Sunday) I had a fantastic time and almost drove to the con Saturday night, but that was mostly because my GPS decided that the con was the address when I pressed the "Home" button.

    Great job guys. Congratulations to all the con staff, you pulled this off splendidly. I'll admit I was pessimistic about how well this was going to go, especially in the wake of the LPU fiasco, but you guys put together a magnificent experience.

    For people who'll be there Friday night, you're welcome to gather and hang in my suite (yay, mixer!). It'll probably be 9 or later, due to volunteer training, and pretty low-key (although if people brought music, it might work). Watch this space for more info (such as the room number)

    just an FYI for anyone that plays a guitar that can be hooked up to an amp I will be bringing my bass canon aka boom box and it has a port to act as an amp for a guitar so if anyone plans on playing there own music let me know and i will come running with my bass canon lol

    March 8, 2013

    • Rodrigo O.

      Figures. My usual guitar is an acoustic-electric, but since I'm coming in from work and need to keep things compact, rolling with a travel acoustic guitar that I haven't yet had the chance to amplify. But I'll manage. If I can find someone else to jam along with over there, I'll be more than happy.

I'll be downing a whole bottle of nyquil tonight, but unless I wake up feeling amazing, I'm going to have to sit this one out.
