FAIR BRAG!!
« on: June 16, 2018, 10:04:30 PM »
Woohoo! Looks like Im the first brag post from the MLPfair! (This is my first fair- actually first convention ever!)
Im spending tomorrow in Magic Kingdom so unfortunately wont be pony-ing any more after today.


But! I am so thrilled with this haul!!

The morning was insane! I actually felt pretty bummed that I hadnt run around buying faster- because it seemed like thats what everyone else was doing. And if I put something down for a second someone else would immediately buy it. But after lunch I had much much better luck. The energy in the vendor hall had calmed down a lot and I bought 2x as many ponies (and for better prices) than I had in the morning. So it really was an overall success!! (My wife also wound up scoring a hoard of new baby ponies- her primary collection)

My wife & I cosplayed as Lickity Split & Port-O-Bella. It was great fun to have so many people recognize and enjoy our looks. (I made the hats & tiedyes myself)

I got Bonnie Zacherle & Kirk Hindman to sign my Peachy. (+ Bonnie signed a copy of her book) Kirk also brought along a bunch of cool prototypes

OOOOOO  I love your cosplay!  The hats make the costume.  You could reuse the tie-dye shirts for cosplaying the gradient G3 too!  :)

Congrats on all the new ponies.  everyone should own a nightglider! 

thank you very much for the glimpse inside the Fair!  XD

And what a brag it is! Seaflower, Fair Feathers, Night Glider, Bowtie, Wigwam, Chief!

You guys look great! Love the tie dye and hats.

Those prototypes are adorable. Especially the other sitting pose.

I'm glad you had fun and I hope you have a Marvelous time at Disney World.

I saw you guys! LOVE the cosplay - how clever!

And thanks for the prototype photos - by the time I managed to get through the crowd to see them at today's panel, he was already putting them away.

Oh wow, looks like you had such an amazing time! Such cool costumes and so many awesome ponies! One day - ONE day - I will make it to a fair. But that is international travel for us and with our exchange rate not something to be lightly undertaken sadly.

I feel the same. One day I might get there. One day.

Since about 50% of the jobs in my academic field come up in the US, if I end up there for a year or whatever, I will have to make it a point to go, even if I just stand and stare at stuff...

Congrats on your finds at the fair, Prince Sunbeam :D I agree with LBS that everyone should have a Night Glider ;) and you have some other awesome stuff as well in that haul.

That cookery pony was a childhood one for me and one I have a soft spot for. She's so pretty. She's clearly travelled a long way, too, just to join your collection :D I wonder where she began her life.
