Convention UPDATES





All the convention updates in a small, bite-sized post. Below you will find the following;




  • Equestria LA AM2 Q&A Panel
  • Midwestria Updates
  • Love is Magic at TrotCon
  • BronyCon documentary invites military servicemembers to dinner 









You heard about Midwestria way back when and wondered what we've been up to? You haven't heard about us but want to know more? Well look no further! We here at Midwestria have been super busy the past few months and want to fill you in on all the hard work we've been doing.

- Panel Submissions have been open for a little over two months now. We've gotten some great submissions but we could always use more. If you have an idea for a panel that you've been itching to do, head on over to the Midwestria website and fill out the submission form.

- Vendor and Artist registration has been open for almost a month now. We're filling up fast but there's still a few spots left. If you're interested in selling your wares make sure to fill out the application on our website!

- We recently announced our first guest, the developers for MLP: Budding Friendship. Budding Friendship is a slice-of-life game where you play as a blank-flank pony living life in Ponyville. The group will be presenting panels and demoing the game throughout the weekend.

- We'll be holding a Grand Galloping Gala style formal ball preceded by dance lessons for those of you with two left hooves.

- There will be two informal dances featuring some awesome pony DJs, lasers, fog machines and maybe even a party cannon or two.

- We're holding a 5k charity race to benefit a local equestrian therapy center. Following the race we'll be holding an Iron Pony competition featuring challenges such as bobbing for apples, hay bale tossing and an obstacle course.

-We'll have a field day set up on Saturday which will feature a bounce house, inflatable rock climbing wall, laser tag, free cotton candy and popcorn, and tons of other fun activities.

- If you pre-register for the convention you'll receive an exclusive hint for our scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt will require you to collect the elements of harmony from various locations around the convention. The first person to find all of the elements will win a handmade Celestia and Nightmare Moon plush

- Pre-registration increases from $35 to $40 on June 30th. If you want to save a few dollars make sure you take advantage of the lower rate while you can.

This is just a brief glimpse at what we've been up to. We have many more announcements coming up  in the next month, including a long list of guests, so make sure you keep an eye on our website, facebook or twitter for all of the most up-to-date information. If you have a great idea for an event or just want to chat with other pony fans head on over to midwestria.org/forums and let us know what you're thinking.

Love is Magic is Going to TrotCon
Hey everypony, Gentlecolt Collaborations here. The game is still being worked on, slow and steady, and we’re doing our best to make it top quality (which will take some time). However, we have some news for you:


We are going to TrotCon July 21-22! There will be a presentation featuring a Q&A session and we’ll show a bit of the beginning of the game. We will also have a booth where you can come and try it out for yourself! A larger demo is currently being planned for release later in the year for everypony to download from our site. There is currently a poll there that will determine which character will receive a special art scene in the demo (everypony will have one in the full game), so go there and vote for your favourite pony! We’re also looking for more sketchers and voice actors if you’re interested in joining the team.



To keep up with news about the game, check out our Facebook Page!
