With Midnight Magic Panel Description Whether you're thrifting your costume or constructing from scratch... we all need to know our basics! With this class, I'll walk you through the breakdown of the sewing machine and what each part does to help you construct your masterpiece! I'll compare/contrast top patterns from Vogue, Simplicity, Butterick and even some less known ones such as Burda and New Look. From there we'll discuss some basics about fabrics....which should you choose and why some are not as popular as others. There'll be time for a Q&A so that everyone can leave a satisfied participant. So the tough question remains: what will happen after MLP reaches its last season? This panel confronts the question, knocks it out cold and reminds fans that there’s still plenty of pony fun beyond the last season of generation four. Fan continuations? Possible official spinoffs? Join us for an engaging discussion about plans beyond the last season. Want a dress form to help build costumes but can't afford the $250-$600 for one? Why not make your own? We will be teaching you how to make your own forms out of nothing but duct tape and a tee-shirt. Materials will be provided for the first four people free. After that, this workshop will cost $15. In return, you will receive duct tape, tee-shirt and written instructions. If you would like to bring your own materials, you will need 2 large rolls of duct tape and a baggy teeshirt. We will be providing written instructions for those that want to do the workshop but can't for $3. Bronies are a very interesting phenomenon that has not only baffled people outside of the fandom but people that are Bronies themselves. Join Paleo as he goes over a variety of perspectives from the fandom. Who knows? Maybe you'll learn something new! Brony Breakdown is a livestream podcast hosted on EverFreeRadio featuring Paleo and Saberspark. In the show, they discuss news and content of the week as well as take questions from the audience, though the live panel version has a slightly different spin on it. At this panel, Paleo will be hosting it along with his friend Craig. Brony Fan Fair Chairman Peter C. Jiang takes your questions on what it's like to run the first My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic convention in the state of Texas. Learn more about BFF's creation, its organization, and its adorable mascot, Rising Star! What do you want to see in a pony game? There are many great custom games in the brony fandom thanks to the high level of creativity within the community. Game developer and character artist Jesse Sosa holds a round-table discussion where attendees will talk about game design and discuss what they'd like to see in a pony game. Interested in communications, narrowcast media coverage, radio DJing, and how it all applies to Bronies? Then come join Brony station Celestia Radio as they talk about all things music, ponies, and swag in this communications panel outreach. Including special Q&A with Celestia Radio members KBrony, Qcom, and Shamrock. A discussion about gender, fandom, and why bronies matter, for better or for worse. It's like getting to act out a darker episode of the show, except the players get to write the outcome! This is based off of the party game "The Werewolves of Millers Hollow"/Mafia. Changelings are ravaging Ponyville!! Are you a bad enough dude to retake Ponyville? This is a game of tactics and wit. Let us know what you think about the convention! Good or bad, we want to know how your experience was and if there is anything we would've done to improve. Part fashion show and part costume contest, the Brony Fan Fair Cosplay Contest showcases the best of the MLP inspired and nonMLP inspired costumes of the convention! Awards will be given out and many pictures to be taken! Do ponies drive you to drink? Or do they just drive you to drink like you mean it?

Anyone's invited to watch, 21 and up only for the drinking. PonyKart spotlights several fanmade games inspired by MLP. Improve your pony drawing skills by learning how real equines are put together! This panel will cover equine anatomy, biomechanics, and breed types; all things that will take your pony art to a whole new level. Ponies are awesome. Part moving speech, part motivating workshop, this panel will show you how you can give back to our amazing community by starting your own awesome project. General Zoi shows off upcoming features for the pony creator and answers your questions! Brony Fan Fair Guests of Honor appear on this panel to talk about anything with no limits! Learn the basics of pony anatomy and construction drawing with the host of the Drawponies show, Neil Wacaster. No matter what your experience level, come to learn tips and tricks to make your drawings dazzling! A friendly, civil discussion of diversity, social justice, netiquette, and what it all means to be a part of the MLP community! Learn what Molly Hardney, Peter C. Jiang, General Zoi others think about social controversies in the Brony fandom and how we can work together to make the fandom look decent to outsiders! In this panel, we customize your experience at Brony Fan Fair in a Brony Fan Fair reverse Q&A. Contestants and Artists alike are pulled to draw random pictures at the audience's Whims! Players have to draw together and compete on teams. Subject matter is chosen by the audience but may not Chris Holm come out as they expect. Anything is possible and the results are unimaginably hilarious. Results will always be 20% cooler then what you think. This is where the magic happens!

More information at: http://www.thebronychronicles.com/ The Vinyl Scratch Tapes go LIVE! Come see an episode live, ask questions, get answers, and prepare to laugh your flank off as the cast and crew of TVST come to Austin! So what is this whole brony phenomenon about? Friends and family members of bronies may find the fandom more complex than they ever expected, but with a little help from knowledgeable bronies, those who are unfamiliar with the My Little Pony craze can have their questions answered and learn about ponies in the process. Come on over and ask away! Ever wondered what the process is like for voice acting in pony projects such as fan animations, comic dubs, and radioplays? This panel will show how to get started, tips and tricks, and a chance to ask questions or get a voice request from your favorite pony. While you might think this is the panel where we debate the age old question, the "Who is Best Pony?" panel at Brony Fan Fair is a game designed specifically for audience involvement and entertainment! We pit two random MLP characters in a random competition and get two audience members to build a case for the character they represent. Based on the arguments made, YOU decide the winner by round of applause. Prepare for two hours of some of the funniest improvisation this side of Canterlot! Inspired by “Whose Line is it Anyway?” this show adds pony elements to many party games such as “Questions Only, Moving Ponies, Superponies, Helping Hooves,” and a few custom games such as “Cockatrice.” The games are all about audience participation and there will be a quick instructional segment to teach audience members the basics of improv. So give it a shot and show us your skill!
