Equestria L.A. (September 4-6, 2015) is one of the cons Time Siren and I are saving up our bits for. It will be our first My Little Pony con. Even if you aren’t into MLP, you have to admit it’s quite a phenomena. When looking up a pony con near us, I found that there were twenty seven in the U.S. last year alone, and that doesn’t count all the ones from Germany to Japan. Not bad for a half-hour show, aimed at kids, with only four full seasons under it’s belt, and it’s 100th episode coming up.
If you live in the L.A. area, or can make it to Anaheim, you might want to check out our local pony con. Here is some of the latest news they’ve been posting:
June 4: Amy Keating Rogers Rogers returns to EQLA. Ms. Rogers is a writer that has been with the show since it’s first season. Her credits include, “Applebuck Season,” “Bridle Gossip,” “A Dog and Pony Show,” “The Best Night Ever,” “The Last Roundup,” and “Filli Vanilli.”
June 3: Book a room at Equestria L.A.s venue, the Anaheim Hilton and get a hotel key adorned with Andy Price’s art. This is something I have never seen in almost three decades of con going: an electronic hotel room key with exclusive convention art on it! Now, that’s a souvenier!
May 21: FinalDraft to host VA panel. FinalDraft is the premier software program for screen writing. I’ve never seen them host a panel at any other convention. I’m impressed.
May 20: EQLA is offering discount #TwilightTickets for evening entry into Disneyland. If you’re not familiar with area, The Hilton and Anaheim convention center are literally across the street from the Disneyland Resort.
May 19: The original creator of My Little Pony, Bonnie Zacherle, will be at the convention.
You can check out all the news and details at the Equestria L.A. FaceBook page, or on their website. Admission is $60.00 for the weekend, which is pretty standard for a con. While at the website, check out the pictures of their two previous cons. TimeSiren and I are going to go so broke in the dealers’ room…
