Midwest Brony Fest


We had an awesome time at Midwest Brony Fest in Overland Park, Kansas.  This is Emperor and Elf in the vending room.  Definitely the weak spot of the convention.  There were only perhaps 12 vendors almost all selling stuff that was...

Extremely overpriced!  Are you kidding me?  I know it's handmade, but it's been all worn and napped from too much handling, the pony on the left looks like she's gonna collapse, and... are you kidding me?

We wandered to the cyber cafe nearby and Emperor was browsing more reasonably priced options.

Elf watched My Little Pony videos.  Finally, it was time to look around for a few minutes before "Greggo's Game Show."

We found Waldo!  He's married, and has a family!  Sweet.

Absolutely one of the best things about the convention is meeting other people with similar interests, hanging out and playing games.



Much higher quality merchandise.  Hand made by White Dove.  Nice stuff.

But my kids need to go to college and get smart, so that's it for that thought.

Waiting for one of Greggo's game shows to begin.  The game shows followed a "Wheel of Fortune" and "Family Feud" format, except with a My Little Pony theme.

I don't get it.  It's $2.25 for a soda, or you can get four sodas and a whole pizza for $15. Guess what we did.

Sam Vincent plays Flim on My Little Pony.  He gave a talk and is very accessible and friendly to his fans.

We left after learning a bit of My Little Pony history from an avid collector of the first generation toys.  We really had an awesome time, but I think we'll skip next year because the cost of $45/weekend or $30/day is a bit steep considering the vendor room size.  The homeschool convention is at least ten times bigger and is $40/family.  So the price comparison doesn't work for me personally.
