Before you guys rip me to shreds, just hear me out. Yeah, I know My Little Ponies is meant to be for little girls, but I like the internet parodies of the show, and the show itself (the current, 4th generation stuff, and nothing more). Anyways, this isn't the entry where I talk about the show. This is what went down at Midwestria 2012.
Midwestria came out of no where in March of this year when one of my Facebook buddies told me about it. I was like, "how do you make a My Little Ponies convention, with that little time to plan out?" Usually, it takes at least 1.5 years to fully plan out a brand new con. Yet, the crew that's running that con is the same crew who runs KollisionCon. So they got this in the bag.
Due to my work place at Toyota, I missed three events worth covering. "Running of the Leaves 5K", a 5K race for Charity. "Iron Pony Competition", Just like an Iron Man Olympics with events like "Hay Tossing", Roping, and Tug-o-War. And lastly, The Cosplay Contest.
Con wise. I'll be honest, the weirdest thing about this con is, being at a con where there's more women than dudes in a con space. Yet at night, it returns back to con normal where there's more dudes that girls. Good thing there's a good amount of people that I know from the con scene in the Midwest to hang out with...
The Dealers room and Artist Alley were in one room. The gaming room had their separate room, and the Panel Rooms were somewhere. Later in the night, the guys who runs "Midwest Karaoke Madness" had their room. The Rave, OMFG. Their rave set up was by the same guy who did KollisionCon's rave. There was a bunch of laser lights going off and smoke and stuff. Giving me some decent shots of the rave.
Sadly, due to the amount of time that I got at the time. This is all I was able to report in to you guys. Lastly I'll leave you guys with this clip that I capture from the con... I'll let the video explain for itself... @.@
Oh yeah... It's not a SoulCrash Ron goes to a Con post without the picture gallery link... http://www.flickr.com/photos/rladao/sets/72157631549145447/
Yeah I have no qualms about that. I just figured that was one of the biggest arguments pony haters use on this site. Honestly, that's the weakest excuse, because ScrewAttack is *primarily* a gaming website, NOT *exclusively* a gaming website. If that were the case then they would have told us that to get frontpaged you must talk about games! But no. It's all about great content not found elsewhere. TAKE THAT!
The first vid looked like a crappy state fair, but overall this con looks interesting. Still probably not as good as BroNYCon (which I still need to go to one year)
Ever since Craig asked me to cover random cons that I go to... I'm like... okay... so therefore... Midwestria was on the list to put up on the site... ._.
I'll admit. Pony cosplay really confuses me. Especially when guys do it....
Also, freaky Applejack costume is freaky.
yea i still dont get it, o wellz
...........that bit with the Applejack costume is a tad bit much...
inb4 "DIS GAMIN WEBSIET BLARRG" drama. Seriously, let's not bring that up.
I really just don't get it....I tried so hard to like MLP...I did. I just couldn't see it. I mean, every once in a while I see a really hot girl cosplaying as some sort of pony character, and I just get so sad because I know it can never ever be....her love for the pony is too strong.
The gallery has some good cosplay, some creepy and probably the most frightening Apple Jack custome i have ever seen xD
Another con I had to miss -_-
