    Has anyone took pictures OR videos of me in my Full suit Cosplay of Doctor Whooves anywhere at all during EQLA 2013??? (What about the performance I was with dancing with pony beat music-maker "Bagpipe-Brony" during the Pony Rave Dance on Saturday???
    Is anyone has anything of photos or videos or whatever, do contact me right away and send them all to me! ^^
    I have to post this on SoCal Bronies Bulletin Board on Facebook! (Since I'm Senior Admin/In-State Manager of the SCBBB website.)

  • Bailey K.

    Friends, acquaintances, and fellow bronies/pegasisters,
    I'd like to inform you all that I won't be attending tomorrow (Sunday). In fact you most likely will never see me at EQLA again.

    I was banned. They won't tell me why. So do me a favor, all of you, and enjoy the last day of the con without me!

    PS I was gonna be Pony Joe Sunday, and handing out free doughnuts. But I guess that won't happen. If you feel angry along with me about this, good, just don't make a big issue about it with/within staff. Just stay out of trouble and have fun!

    /) times 258!

      These cons really are a 24/7 experience. I actually didn't go to a single panel.

    *sighs* I wanna sleepover with bronies as roommates at a con sometime... I've NEVER had a sleepover ever ever before, and I'm legal... -3-

  • Calvin A.

    I might be a little late for this but....
    This was my first con ever and I must say, it was quite an experience. It was great to see all my friends and meet new ones. Though I am a little dishearten that it has all ended but I know that we will all eventually come back together. Until next time!

  • Eric M.

    That was... awesome! Even though I didn't know too many folks in the fandom, most everyone was real friendly and willing to stop to chat, even the famous bronies.

    May 12, 2013

    • Eric M.

      Kinda the same here, I went alone because I didn't have any nearby Brony friends. But I did make some effort to talk to all sorts of bronies, as I sympathize more with the less well-known, ordinary bronies, being one myself.

      May 12, 2013

      bwah! we shoulda hung out... :<

      Have you contacted hotel staff to see if they have it in a lost and found?

      May 15, 2013

      I was there with the lost and found at the end. mostly it was just a handful of bottle cap charms and a couple of wallets with no ID. Nothing nearly as exciting as a plush unfortunately. At least with the con lost and found. hopefully the hotel got something later.

  • ϟ Thunderlane ϟ (.

    Guys... Do you know what forms does YouTube accept? I filmed some random clips of the dance party on my iPhone, but YouTube won't take it. I uploaded to my iPhoto on my Mac, and exported as a .mov file, and won't work. If anyone can halp, that'd be cool! ^-^

      Thank you, Stitch! I actually deleted a few of my pics a bit ago to make at least a little more room in this album for others who might still want to upload some. Didn't think about starting a new album; that's much better. =)

    Fun and thrilling! Best pony convention I've been to so far.

    3 · May 14, 2013

  • ϟ Thunderlane ϟ (.

    Who else sang along as loudly as they could at the dance party?! I know I did! Cuz I actually knew the lyrics! And it was awesome to hear my voice kinda blend in with others around me, meaning that I'm kinda hitting the right notes and pitches as the dj was! Squee! I miss this con... >.<

    2 · May 14, 2013

  • Heather S.

    Well, it was definitely fun and much more organized this year. I will admit that I do miss the closeness (I guess you could call it) I felt from everyone last year. The atmosphere was much more lighthearted, energetic, and joyful, even though the con was small. With the explosion of attendees this year, it felt a lot more congested and chaotic. This is no fault of the staff's, mind you. Trust me, I don't mind a big con. Meh, it could be that the weather was just killer. D: Also, is it just me or did anyone else notice the lack of energy in the room. It came in short bursts than died. Last year, nearly everyone was dancing and having fun. Then again, it was really hard to move in this year's crowd. People were shoving and some were just being plain rude. :/ It was a killjoy, to be honest. I left after an hour, though mostly due to back pains.

    All in all, I had a good time. The panels were fun, dealers hall was bustling, and I loved seeing my friends! ^_^ Looking forward to next year!

      "ONE MORE THING!": The staff was excellent at the convention. Great job!

      1 · May 14, 2013

    • Jason J.

      Regarding space at the dance: we made the decision to only remove the front two seating sections for the concerts to allow some guests to sit if they'd like, and we certainly did see some folks doing just that.

      That being said, when we actually saw the crowd for the concerts, we all basically agreed that it would have been better if we removed at least one more section of chairs. We definitely want to keep *some* seating, but yeah definitely for next time we will try to make more room on the floor.

    Well, it sucks that I didn't show up, I will buy a Disney season pass next year so I can hang out with some bronies. I can't judge how fun it was because I really don't know what went down, so I'll wait till videos are up. Keep those smiles up.

    Equestria this year was okay. But compared to last year it was kinda boring. Doesn't mean I didn't have any fun though. Saw a lot of people from last year, organized a predance party (even though not too many people danced), Nicole Oliver and Cathy Wesluck were hilarious, I got to read scripts out loud with other fans at Rina-chan's "My Little Script Reading" panel, met 2 of my friends who went to the con, being part of "Photo Finish's Cosplay Fashion Show" with other awesome cosplayers, got a few numbers/contacts, helping a few bronies getting the series 1 cards they needed, buying a Mother's Day gift, and also staffing.

    I loved that I helped set up the Curtains at the back of the vendor hall, kept guard during several panels such as Solracon 2, and help direct attendees to where they needed to go.

    Besides the fact that I was kicked out for a vague reason, I enjoyed what I got from it. If I am completely banned from attending in the future, may all of you have a great time!
