Nightmare Nights 2014

Nightmare Nights is back in 2014! And 2015, 2016, and 2017, but we'll cross those bridges as we come to them. So far, we've signed Tabitha St. Germain (the voice of Rarity, Luna, Nightmare Moon, Granny Smith, and Derpy, among others), Britt McKillip (the voice of Cadence), script writers Josh Haber (Castle Mania, Leap of Faith, and Simple Ways), Natasha Levinger (Pinkie Apple Pie and It Ain't Easy Bein' Breezies), and Amy Keating Rogers (13 episodes!), comic writer Heather Nuhfer (Nightmare Rarity arc), Mitch "The Coronator" Larson (Luna Eclipsed), and MLP book author G.M. Berrow, whose "Daring Do" books will be out two weeks before the con! Like last year, we're running all weekend, with panels, activities, vendors, artists, autograph signings, and more! Our new corporate partner is Phoenix Entertainment, the people behind A-Kon, so you better believe we're coming big this year.

      It's gonna take me a bit. I didn't exactly have a "good" camera, so I have to work my Photoshop magic to fix lighting and motion blurring.

  • thegrandadmiral

    your majesty did a good job as Queen Sombra

  • Mike L.

    This should happen more often. I had a load of enjoyment at this event. Hope to see you all again next year or at another event in the near future.

    So my newest niece was actually born yesterday afternoon, and since I donated at the charity auction I feel like I gave back to little Cassidy in a way. Great convention, everyone!

      October 24

  • Mick C.

    Super excited :) Could use a third roomie tho, staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for two nights, we would split the bill three ways, meaning we each pay $72. Anyone interested, please message me :)

    October 23

  • Andy F.

    I am only coming on saturday. Are you guys meeting somewhere/sometime saturday morning so that I can find you guys?

      October 23

  • Chris S.

    Anybody ever had that time where they wanted to give something to their favorite VA?
    I keep thinking it'd be cool, but just being there should be enough, right? :)
    Also can't wait till next week and also I saw the schedule posted a day or so ago.

    October 17

    • Andy F.

      saturday at 3:30-5:00 there is an autograph time. i believe there is an autograph time on sunday as well.

  • Victoria G.

    Wow, a week away! I am extremely excited. Though I am still working on cosplays, you betcha I'll be done and ready by Friday!

    October 17

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    Unfortunately, I must bow out. I've suffered reduced hours at my job (and said hours are dead, which means no income for me, since I'm a server), and my side-job got rained out, which means all my money needs to go towards paying rent and stuff this time.

    I hope you guys will be having it next year. When I'm a little bit more established as far as money goes, I'll look at coming again.

    October 11

    • V-Pony

      Aww damn, I'm sorry to here that man! DX
      I wish had the money to help more directly. Gonna miss ya this year. Stay safe and pony on till then, dude! /)

      October 13

    • Noah Raye K.

      I feel your pain, though it's not the lack of hours for me but the fact that my car decided to puke it's innards, necessatating a new water pump and belt. Please tape the wedding for me!!

      October 17

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    Pity there's no "Maybe" RSVP. Work hours took a hit, and I might not be going because I'd need that weekend to make me some money. Plus, university homecoming also messes with it, but we've already got that worked around. So help me god if they add the morning parade in again...

    September 27

  • Bob C.

    Edited the description to include Mitch Larson and our as-yet-unannounced guest. Happy reading!

    September 11

  • V-Pony

    So, this is happening now

    Oh lord...two Princesses...and the Princess creator himself...all at the same con...
    Plus a wedding...

    Brace yourselves, bronies, this is gonna be a wild ride!!!

    2 · September 9

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      So, what you're saying is, we have us a Princess Coronation/Royal Wedding crossover for a finale?

      September 9

    • Bob C.

      Yes, that code is good for 10% off any badge, including Sponsor and Premium Sponsor.

      September 11

  • Alex B.

    I wonder what kinda activities there going to have

    August 11

    • Noah Raye K.

      That's super awsome. This is one lucky couple! ^-^

      September 8

    • Chris S.

      Lol
      Oh, not disappointed, surprised, but still even more happy to know something big like a wedding will happen. :)

      1 · September 8

  • Chris S.

    Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy last year, this year: Princess Luna this? I can NOT wait long enough, days will slowly pass by.

    1 · March 31

    • Noah Raye K.

      Should run a kick starter to get a bigger guest budgie for next year! ^_^

      September 8

    • Bob C.

      Sorry, Noah; it just doesn't work that way. Our Kickstarter is our ticket sales. Besides, in the wake of the massive failures of several cons that ran crowdfunding campaigns, any con that runs one creates a negative impression now.

      September 8

  • Alex B.

    Just wondering, anybody interested in carpooling

    July 7

    • Alex B.

      What day do you plan on making the drive to Addison

      August 29

    • Noah Raye K.

      I'll be going all 3 days. I have room for 1 person if someone needs a ride.

      September 8

  • Bob C.

    While y'all are welcome to pay cash at the door, or get a free badge for volunteering at http://nightmarenights.net/index.php/applications/ you can always pre-register on our website. That'll save you a TON of time picking up your badge. I'd also recommend staying at the con hotel if you can swing it. Get a few roommates, and for a total of $60, you can crash upstairs all weekend. Trust me, it makes a HUGE difference: it allows you to experience a lot of awesome late-night stuff, like hanging out in the hotel bar with the show staff until 2 AM. You can reserve a room by calling (972)[masked], and giving them the code MLP. No money down; pay when you check out Sunday.

    September 8

  • Bob C.

    For those of you who've followed the list of guests above, we still have two more to announce! We've also got a trio of Community Guests, namely Foal Papers, Dusty Kat, and Sherry Bourlon of White Dove Creations!

    August 29

  • Shawn

    Good news! I have the entire weekend off so I can volunteer. I have some skills as a computer technician, not a professional but I've fixed problems on personal computers for friends. And as stated before I have software for running tournaments for trading card games also known as CCGs (collectible card games.) Since I'm going to college for networking and other computer-related stuff it would be a great opportunity for me to earn some experience in the field :)

    August 8

    • Shawn

      Kewl. Does she have an email I can use to contact her?

      August 9

    • Bob C.

      Ehhh, not going to give out someone else's contact info, but she's a member of this Meetup. I'll poke at her.

      August 10

  • Alex B.

    Question: what days are you guys gonna meet because I might just go for one day and I'm not sure which day yet

    July 21

    • Alex B.

      Now I am determined to go all three days!

      August 9

    • Line M.

      I'll be there on Thursday. ^_^ Yay for staffing!

      2 · August 9

  • Chris S.

    I can say, with confidence I will be returning.
    And after hearing that there's going to be a larger number of Volunteers, it was suggested that I'd do some shifts. Which I would think be a really good change. Let everybody see what they want to see and I can see what I want.
    Especially if there's an autograph session or the card game, I'd most likely want to check those out. Any other panels of interest, dealer/vendor, but I'd still be there to assist strongly if needed.
    Heck, I'd be happy to help in the Registration. lol

    Can NOT wait for the weekend to enjoy more fun and laughs.

    2 · August 9

  • Shawn

    I'd like to volunteer. I can bring my laptop which has software for hosting tcg and ccg tournaments. It requires my employer giving me the weekend off but I've been a part of the tcg/ccg community since 2005 so lmk if you'd like some help with tcg/ccg events during the con /)

    August 2

  • Mr920

    I don't know what there is to volunteer to be. I've never been to any of these before. But if you've got something that needs doing, contact me, and i'll probably do it. Otherwise, i'll probably attend as a regular person.

    August 1

  • Micro B.

    Im volunteering for the DJ position, wish me luck guys

    2 · June 23

  • Chris S.

    2 pics uploaded to Facebook page.
    Card was found at a local card-shop; just like it happened last year. :)

    July 26

  • Chris S.

    Is there a way to see if an application of any form, got through?

    July 21

    • Bob C.

      Musician Acceptance: That's up to Xyro. He'll be sending out e-mails soon.

      July 24

    • Bob C.

      Finally, Chris, if that was you in Registration last year, I need you to contact me: [masked], or[masked]

      July 24

  • Raymond W.

    I'm gonna need a pure black shirt for this convention...

    July 22

    • Chris S.

      Check out: Michael's if you have one. The hobby-store that has lots of supplies for hobbyists (your results may vary) especially t-shirts that you can make into whatever you want.

      July 22

    • Raymond W.

      Welp, I know how I'm spending my Saturday.

      July 22

  • Victoria G.

    I'm so glad I'm going again this year! Last year was a blast!!
    Hearing that Britt McKillip (Princess Cadance) will be there makes me so excited, because I'm doing a King (er, Queen) Sombra cosplay!
    I'll also be there as Trixie and Pinkamena so keep an eye out for me!
    I can't wait!!

    • V-Pony

      @ Bob: Oops, I thought that was DustyKatt ^^;;

      July 18

    • Victoria G.

      @V-Pony it was actually, I have a picture of it from the con. He had his wing covered with a bloody gauze on his Daring Do cosplay (not a crazy amount though)

      July 21

  • V-Pony

    Finally got my Sponsor Badge (and one for my youngest brother too!) ^^
    Watch out Nightmare Nights, V-Pony and Mr. Maud are gonna be in da house!!!!!

  • Bob C.

    So, odd question: Last year, we had a volunteer. Rainbow-dyed hair. Attended a volunteer meetup at Jason's Deli, then accompanied us to The Londoner afterwards. Wound up working Registration all weekend. Um, who was that, exactly?

    July 15

  • Chris S.

    Hey now, what happened to that link where you can book a room at the discount rate?

    July 12

    • Bob C.

      Easiest and fastest way is to call them directly, as opposed to going through the national call center or website:[masked]-8877. Discount room code is MLP.

      July 15

  • Mike L.

    I live and study on the UT Dallas campus, and the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Addison is less than six miles away. So I'm most definitely coming! Look forward to meeting the rest of you there.

    July 6

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      He'll be a sophomore, and IDK the major now, but he used to be Arts and Tech. Kinda tall blonde hair, glasses sometimes, skinny, sound familiar?

      July 8

    • Mike L.

      Somewhat familiar. I think I may actually know him.

      July 14

  • Micro B.

    So what's the plan on going there, are we all just gunna meet up?

    July 3

    • Raymond W.

      Wait, when did this happen and why did I not hear about this? It sounded like a lot of fun!

      July 7

    • V-Pony

      @ Raymond Webb--It was kinda spur of the moment. One second me and Derpy were talking about Olive Garden, the next like 20 bronies all showed up/followed us there and we kinda crashed the place. The waiters were so confused XD

      July 8

  • Line M.

    If there's anyone coming from the Tulsa area... I'll have room for one or two in my van. Heading down a day or two before con, leaving a day or two after. Gas is cheaper than flying!

    July 8

  • Bob C.

    Four more guests announced! See the above announcement to see who else we've got coming!

    June 27

  • Shawn

    I live probably 70-80 miles away. yay I can go if I get approved for vacation at work :D
