BronyFest 2013

I don't know whether or not I personally will be going, but it's the first of the two DFW conventions of the year, and it's only slated for 2500 people, so we're gonna have to decide fast if we're going or not because this is... well... Dallas.

    I had an awesome time! It was my first con and I know it was small.
    But better to have a small one first, to enjoy Nightmare Nights all the more.

    I enjoyed seeing so many Bronies! It is not just the show, but the fandom that is so amazing.

    I enjoyed learning to draw ponies, and making them out of foam. The foam ponies were my Favorite part.

    Some of the cosplayers were skilled and Beautiful.

    I am glad I went.
    I look forward to Nightmare Nights.

    The con was pretty fun. It was my first one, so I can't really compare it to any others, but there is one thing that I didn't quite like. That was a lack of a schedule. You didn't know what was going on the next day until the morning of said day, which was quite frustrating. Another thing I didn't like was the fact that there really wasn't that many people there, maybe 360 or so, but not more. Besides this, it was generally well put together and fun to attend overall. The smaller size did have a plus to it as well, because there were the same people in a place, giving you time to make even closer bonds with them.

    The entire convention was fantastic. I never got together with anyone on here, but for my first con, I had a major blast. I met a lot of really awesome people and actually felt accepted, sort of like family. DEFINITELY going next year!

    Just a question about the convention/meetup, are we having a meetup at the convention and going as a group? Or in the middle of the convention we meetup for lunch I suppose? Or are we just gonna go "at the gala" style where we all go our thing haha :3

    • David S.

      @Johnathon Cummings

      Correct. They are impressive and have awesome visual effects with music.

      They will definitely draw attention to sales and our group members!

      Great idea!

    I am going to sound 100% stupid for asking this, but will the Con start Friday morning or around noon? I just can't seem to find a times for it. I have already got the tickets so I am fine. I just want to know if I should go down Thursday night or Friday morning. I have a 2hour drive to get down there anyway.

    March 26, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I'll probably spend Thurs. night down there too.

      March 27, 2013

    • Tyler Rex H.

      So where will we meet at? Will we gather somewhere Saturday morning? This will be my 2nd meetup I will have gone to. Mainly since I will be going to the G.I.Joe movie meet up. So I am very new to this.

      March 27, 2013

  • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon Cummings changed the time from 7:00 PM to 10:00 AM

  • DoTheDaringDew

    Aw hell yeah! My friends and I have a hotel room there, so if anyone from the meetup group wants to get together and hang out at some point, I am totally fine with that! One of the main reasons I'm going to is to advertise and play the brony music I just started writing, so I will most definitely be out and about there.

  • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon C.

    Is it possible we could move this to saturday so I can be with both the NTB and the DFWB?

    March 7, 2013

    • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon C.

      I meant for the meetup at Bronyfest...or does it matter?

      March 23, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I don't think it matters, personally. I mean, the time I posted up there is essentially a filler, and it's on Friday night. By Saturday, we should have a schedule of events, so we just show up and have fun for the day.

      As for the BoNT meeting up, well, I suggested a short lunch on Saturday to take a break from con action, you know? But other than that, we just chill with our brethren and pony on.

      I,think you can get tickets at the door now

      March 17, 2013

    • David S.

      Warning!: Tickets at the door are More expensive [$45] as opposed to [$35] and many have Already paid the $35 and would have to pay $45 again.

      March 20, 2013

  • Tyler N.

    This will be my first convention ^^" hoh man this is gonna be awesome~!

    March 9, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      I'll be honest, I don't expect too much out of this one. While with Brony Fan Fair we had Celestia Radio, Rina-Chan, Midnight Magic, PonyKart, etc. to draw people in (and it drew far more people than expected or accommodated for), the only real thing BronyFest has going for them is Matt Hill.

      Now, Nightmare Nights Dallas seems to be doing a good job in getting high-profile show people (Libman, Wootie, etc.) and high-profile fandom people (Pixelkitties). It'll probably be the second-best Texas Con of the year, after Fiesta Equestria.

      March 10, 2013

    • David S.

      @Tyler Nelson.

      Even if it's not Nightmare Nights or the MAJOR Annual BronyCon, you can still have some fun at this event.

      And you need to experience this to fully enjoy the MAJOR ones.

      So just have a good time.

    I'll need a ride, it's too far

    March 3, 2013

    • David S.

      Good Evening Johnathon Cummings.

      Calculated in Bing Maps, the drive should only be roughly 30 minutes.

      I will see if I can assist.

    The new hotel has been announced. It is at the Hilton Garden Inn at Lewisville.

    I personally will be staying at some relatives' (because it's free).

    Also, I have heard no response about the lunch idea. Anypony open to a Saturday afternoon lunch somewhere cheap and quick to take a break from the action?

      Sounds awesome to me!

      Soup's On Everypony!

    It's too far plus that toll road unless someone can give me a ride.

    March 3, 2013

  • March 2, 2013

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    They have moved to a hotel because of how many people decided to go. That being said, I will edit the location as soon as I know the details.

    February 27, 2013

    • Bob C.

      I very much doubt they've sold 2500 passes. Or 1000. Take that as you will.

      February 28, 2013

    • Rytex (Trey B.

      Believe me, I don't believe they have either.

      February 28, 2013

  • February 27, 2013

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    I may have to bow out, simply because this is over Easter weekend, and my boss might not let me off.

    However, in the event that we are able to meet up at this event, is anyone open for a random meal on any day where we can all just chillax and take a break from the Con itself before heading back?

    February 27, 2013

    griffen, want to go friday night? march 29? let me know i'll get the passes!

    I'll be driving back up for this one ^_^

    I will be there, can't wait to meet yall.

  • Bob C.

    You DO realize that there will be another Dallas MLP convention in November, yes?

    Seems kinda premature to call this one "Con of the Year" before any cons have happened yet.

    December 19, 2012

    • Amar B.

      IMO, seems kinda congested with Brony Fan Fair in September and then two more in November.

      January 31, 2013

    • Bob C.

      We're running an altogether different kind of con than Brony Fan Fair, honestly. And there's competition year-round; over 30 MLP-related conventions have been announced for 2013. This weekend allowed us to step on the fewest toes.

    I'm bringing my dad, he's actually pretty hyped about going! :D

  • (J.T.A.C.) Johnathon C.

    I will try

    November 22, 2012

  • Rytex (Trey B.

    Strong maybe. I plan on bringing a Perler Bead Pixel Art business with my brother. Problem is, LTC is the same weekend, and he's going to that. However, their group's at the same hotel I'm at over in Grapevine, by the mall.
