The Last Bronycon -2019
« on: August 01, 2018, 06:32:05 PM »
So for those who dont know 2019 will be the last bronycon. Its truely sad news and I for one really wish it wasen't true. I just started going in 2017 so its very frustrating to see it dwindle as soon as I was able to start going.


But anyhow who plans to go? Does anyone want to set up pre-trades, rooming, hang outs here?

What would you want at the last bronycon? Events? People? Merch? What do you want to get out of it?

You can bet I'll be there! I've already signed up to be emailed when hotel blocks are ready. I need to go for all four days next year, I've only done one day at a time.
I'll see if I can yank a friend along with me from here, and I'll hopefully meet up with a bunch of net-friends while I'm there. There's a good clump of tumblr friends I hope to meet up with.
I'm cosplaying at least one of the days, and maybe I'll set it up early so I can wear it to the anime convention my friend goes to.
It'll take a few months for my plans to actually solidify, but when it's a bit closer I'll get really into planning.

I've already started to make plans. I'll probably end up rooming with the same people as this year. I just hope they don't have some of the good panels overlap each other. And I'm definitely going to try to be at each Hall of Chaos panel. I hope they do one last Bar Trot, too. Granted, I can always just do that myself.

ahhh, I'm debating on going, if I can save up. Haha. I have $40 in splurging money. Not even enough for a plane ticket. >_<
I'd feel weird bunking in a room with perfect strangers. I'm hoping that I can coerce one of my bible study friends who also likes pony to go with.

     Man I want to go! I’ve wanted to go for so long, and since this is the (heartbreakingly!) last one, I’m going to pull everything I can to ensure I go! Just have to make sure moms not too traumatized after bronycan to take me to bronycon...
     If I went, I’d just want to have fun. I’m hoping some of the animation staff is there. What if Lauren Faust is there?! She’s one of the people I look up to. I’d go for meeting people, merch, just having a blast!
     I wouldn’t mind meeting up with some of you guys over there. I’m quite curious to see who is behind the screen for all the fun we have here. Plot twist: we’re all aliens and show our true forms at the con.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

Oo, I don't think she's attended one yet, but I could be wrong.
The voice actors/tresses are very frequent visitors. I'll have to see who's there to see if they can sign my enterplay cards. There's also lots of comic staff as well.

She hasn't  been to Bronycon, but she has been at a couple brony conventions. I saw her at Nightmare Nights last year.

I'm definitely going! I've never been to a pony convention before (or any convention, technically...) so I really don't want to miss my last chance at attending Bronycon. I've already checked to make sure I can travel most of the distance by train. Haven't figured out any details beyond that yet since a whole year away. I just hope nothing comes up to prevent me from going  :(

That, and they didn't want to risk having a convention that results in a net loss, which makes sense.
G5 being on the horizon isn't helping the brony fandom at all.

It has more to do with the Baltimore Convention Center charging so much for the venue that they could only break even if they got over 10,000 attendees. They haven't had that since 2015.

Besides, the fandom's faded but far from dead. It still had about 10x as many people as the Fair had this year, and I don't think this community's dying either.

I'm planning to be there for sure! Good call on signing up for the room block notification, that sounds like the way to go. If folks want to me up and geek out over G1s or trade, I'm down.  :cool:
