Brony Fan Fair 2 - Austin, Texas - September 13-15

That's Right! BFF is back and will be bigger than ever, with tons of new interest. Artist Alley spots sold out within a couple hours. Last year's attendance was over 900 - I expect more this year. FYI: With over 900 attendees, the convention hall was packed, but the Con Staff did a pretty good job keeping order and traffic flowing. Perhaps this year will give them enough to upgrade for next year - I certainly hope so, they'll need a bigger space with the extra attention they acquired after their first Rodeo

I've already got my reservation set up, con badge registered and banquet ticket reserved. I'm psyched! It'll be in the same Holiday Inn as the first year. If you plan on going, you may want to reserve your room and/or tickets soon. You never know when they may sell out.

Get your tickets here: http://bronyff2013.whindo.com/event/default.aspx?lock=2437056-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0&key=52230b64586d114

Plan on staying in the Host Hotel? http://www.ihg.com/holidayinn/hotels/us/en/austin/ausmf/hoteldetail?groupCode=BRN

Guests have not yet been announced. But when they are, I will post them here.

Day 1

Post  Cypresswolf on Sat Sep 14, 2013 12:37 am

Convention is lookign good this year, space has been improved upon so there's far less crowd traffic

I got a group this time of 5 to attend with me - 3 from Dallas Brony Group, Barbetos, and a long time friend of mine, Ash.
Got plenty of space to accommodate everypony, without a single person having to sleep on the floor

So far, I managed to get my SDCC Vinyl Scratch signed by Rina Chan - that thing is darn near impossible to get out of the box so she could sign it, but with great effort short of destroying the plastic case, opened it up enough for her to sign Vinyl's tail - She wanted to sign her flank, but Vinyl's bolted to the stage. Hasbro sure didn't want anyone taking her out of the box.
Got an AJ & Tavi plush, & E.G. figures of Rarity & Pinkie Pie from the dealer's room. Going to save the rest of my money for the Derpycon South next month.

Well....almost - I picked up a flier for Brony-Fest in Dallas, March 28-30, 2014 - splurged on a platinum ticket for it $425
I think it will be well worth it! Here's what that will include:

1 VIP ADULT 3 DAY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKET
EARLY VENDOR ROOM ACCESS
COMMUNITY GUEST GREEN ROOM ACCESS
RESERVED SEATING IN ALL MAIN EVENTS
NO WAITING *JUMP* PASS FOR ALL AUTOGRAPHS AND PHOTO OPS.
1 EVENT T-SHIRT
1 TICKET TO THE PIE WITH SOARIN EVENT (Eat pie with MATT HILL!
1 TICKET TO THE PLATINUM DINNER WITH THE GUESTS EVENT (SEE EVENTS PAGE FOR DETAILS)
1 GUEST AUTOGRAPH OF YOUR CHOICE & 1 GUEST PHOTO OP OF YOUR CHOICE

Looking forward to it - I should have vacation days again by that time, so trip will be paid for, hopefully

Didn't attend any panels today, mainly caught up on sleep after a marathon insomnia binge of 22 straight hours - work, packing, and drive here thursday.

Have tons of stuff planned for tomorrow, might try to get a poker game started; my group with a few other attendees.
