In 2013, TrotCon featured, for the first time in its relatively short life, VIP guests associated with the creation of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” alongside our usual roster of community guests that we focused on exclusively in 2012. We heard you loud and clear after last year: the hybrid of show staff and fandom guests was a major selling point. So this year, we’re upping the ante slightly — by bringing in our first ‘mane six’ voice actress. We’re incredibly excited to welcome Andrea Libman to TrotCon 2014 this June. As the voice actress of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy in “MLP,” Libman has made thousands of fans across the world with her wide range of different voices, she’s also appeared as Emmy in “DragonTales,” Madeline in “The New Adventures of Madeline” and multiple characters in “Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Bitty Adventures.” Her talent earned her the Union of BC Performers’ award for best voice for her portrayal of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. Who’s joining Andrea at TrotCon? We had him with us last year and just couldn’t imagine a TrotCon without him, so we’re bringing back Peter New in 2014. New is best known in the “MLP” fandom for his work as he-of-few-words, Big McIntosh, in addition to multiple smaller roles — Goldie Delicious and Rarity’s father, for instance. He also supplies the voice of everyone’s favorite mongoose from “Littlest Pet Shop,” Sunil Nevla, as well as live acting roles in “Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed,” “Agent Cody Banks” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” Both Andrea and Peter will sit in on panels during TrotCon 2014 and will be available for autograph signings as well. More appearances may be added as the convention nears. That’s not all! In addition to our lovely voice actors, we have two brand new community guests to announce for this year’s convention. After attending last year, we’re excited to bring back SilverSlinger, formerly ChaoticBrony, as a featured artist. Though the bulk of well-known vendors in the community draw or mold their art, SilverSlinger sets himself apart as an aficionado of sterling silver and other metals, creating out of these materials various pendants, pins, flasks and other forms of jewelry. In addition to selling his wares in our Artists’ Acres. Finally, Animated James will be coming to Columbus to our convention for the first time. An amateur voice actor, animator, artist, musician and writer — what doesn’t he do?! Find out at TrotCon! — he’s created such works as Brony Polka, Sonic vs. MLP, Tails Reacts to What Does the Fox Say and much, much more. He’ll also be presenting multiple panels. Weekend badge prices are currently $35 through March 9, after which they will rise to $40 through May.

maybe go to kings lsland?

That may be a little bit too far for some attendees who would also want to attend. If we do have an after party it will be somewhere in the Columbus Metropolitan area.

Are you doing Zumbezzi Bay again after the con? That was a ton of fun last time! :D

We may or may not. We are still talking about what we should do for the after party this year.

Peanut Bucker Cosplay Design Contest

Calling all artists and designers — now’s your chance to have a hand in creating something special for TrotCon 2014!

Our theme this year is Renaissance, and as such, we’re hoping to see plenty of cosplays and costumes that fit in with this historical sensibility. For the last two years, our very own mascot, Peanut Bucker, has gotten in the cosplaying spirit, but she’s having a bit of trouble finding out what to wear this year! After all, it’s tough to research good Renaissance costumes on the computer when all you have is hooves to type, right?

So we’re throwing the duty of dressing Peanut Bucker over to our fans. We’re looking for a costume design for our lovely mascot, getting her decked out in the coolest of garb to show off when TrotCon takes Coltumbus this June. All we need is a drawing or design of your ideas for Peanut Bucker’s Renaissance costume (for a reference, try this or Google image search ‘Peanut Bucker’). Note that, as in the past, this will be worn by a human portraying a pony, so be sure your designs reflect that. Saddles might look cool on a real pony but a real one might wear our cosplayer down, for instance. Think of the back injuries. Click here for our super cool Peanut Bucker cosplayer from our first convention in 2012 as a potential reference, or perhaps this humanized version here.

What’s in it for you? Besides having your design featured on our Peanut Bucker cosplayer at the convention to the best of our ability to find the parts of the costume you designed, we’re throwing in a free weekend badge for TrotCon 2014. If you’ve already purchased such a badge, we’ll refund you to make it free — no problem! If you already have a badge but would like the free one to give to a friend, that’s also fine.

Sound interesting? Send your designs to trot@trotcon.net. We’ll be looking over the entries and picking a winner around the beginning of February, so get your designs in by Jan. 31 at 11:59 p.m. PT. 

Black Friday Weekend Sale!

This holiday season, the magic number here at TrotCon is 20.

The day after Thanksgiving, millions will be braving the crowds to get some of the hottest deals for the Christmas season — but why not stay in the comfort of your own home this weekend and give that special somepony the greatest gift of all: 20% off all badges for TrotCon 2014!

That’s right — 20% off the fun of Ohio’s first My Little Pony convention. Until March, our normal pre-registration badges run $35, but for one day only, get them for $28. The sale also applies to our sponsor badges, meaning you can become a sponsor of TrotCon for as low as $80. That includes $100 of savings on our alicorn-tier sponsor badge, now priced at $400 instead of $500!

Get ‘em fast, though. While there’s no limit on the amount of badges we can sell this weekend, you only have 96 hours to do it before badges return to their normal prices — and there’s no guarantee they’ll be this cheap again. The sale starts at midnight tonight and will end Monday evening.

So far, we’ve announced quite a few awesome guests, including musicians Cyril the Wolf and Eurobeat Brony, Emily and Tayy from Everfree Network’s Pegasisters Live and artist extraordinaire Pixelkitties. You want more? Don’t fret; we’ll be announcing many more special guests before the convention rolls around this June. 

TrotCon 2014 will be held June 20-22 at the Sheraton at Capitol Square in Columbus, Ohio.
