Well! Let’s see. I started totally failing at the phone and posting in the middle of the con because I was feeling fully hypersocial.. but Bronycon was all around amazing. I’m sure I’ll get some more pics up at some point. Big shoutout to those I got to meet: tohelenahandbasket, kirbuu, emkaymlp, seventhelement, jadeneternal, pinkieadventures… I feel like I’m forgetting some and for that I am sorry! More shoutouts to a couple new followers whose names are just not clicking right now. But I love you all!
That aside, it’s my birthday.. celebrations started somewhat last night, will continue soon enough! Feel free to say hi in my ask box or something <3 Back on track with my real posts soon ;) I’m still half in con mode…
I haven't gone to a convention of any kind since about 2000. I used to go to Lunacon pretty regularly in NY and went to the Atlanta Worldcon, all before bronydom was born, of course. After 9/11 I joined the Army and got married, but sometimes I imagine what life would be like if I had the job I have no but were single and no kids... just flying to freaking conventions and LARPing and cosplaying and stuff. Not that I'd trade the fam for it, but it's nice to fantasize about it once in a while.

Aww :( my first con was the PhillyClassic, probably around 2000ish.. through that I found Magfest and I’ve been going to that one every year since, I randomly went to AnimeNext and Otakon a couple times, but it wasn’t the same.. so it was pretty much just Magfest til this year, when I also went to Big Apple Ponycon, TooManyGames, and some smaller not-quite-cons like a couple of the BroniesNYC meetups, and Bitgen… next up, Magfest 8.5 (returning to the Alexander Mark Center for a kind of “I can’t wait any longer” mini-con)… but well, ever since I put the Pinkie Pie cosplay together I’ve been repping MLP all over the place.. one of my coworkers was hella confused cause he’s seen my pics at video game cons and I’m in the same cosplay in these new ones I keep getting tagged in at Bronycon… “who is that character? did you create your own faction or something?” Ahahahhaha….
Haven’t headed to the bar trot yet and only a few people are cosplaying for badge pickup, but Deadpool has arranged himself many extra hours in the ball pit!
So, who’s gonna be at Bronycon? Send me mail or whatever so we can keep an eye out for each other!
I will have my cards of course so maybe we can get a game going as well!
