BABScon 2015 Gets Twilightlicious with Special Guest Tara...

BABScon 2015 Gets Twilightlicious with Special Guest Tara Strong:

Fillies and Gentlecolts, BABSCon is pleased to announce that the talented voice actress behind the newest friendship princess on the block, Tara Strong, is coming to BABSCon in 2015! Dubbed by some as the “Queen of the Bronies” for her dedication to her fans, Her Twilightliciousness™ will bring a special kind of magic to our convention this spring in her first MLP fan con appearance since BABSCon 2014.

During those first few episodes of MLP:FiM, we were enraptured by the charming, panicky, purple, smart little unicorn that started us on our journey through Equestria. The humble beginnings of our fandom stirred as we watched through Twilight’s eyes, and discovered the magic of friendship alongside her. Tara Strong was the voice that helped make this magic happen. But Tara has done more than lend her voice to Princess Celestia’s prized pupil. Impressed by bronies so much, she went on to be an executive producer for Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony.

Most of us have grown up hearing Tara our whole lives since been the voice of Timmy Turner in The Fairly Oddparents, Raven on Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go!, Ben Tennyson on Ben 10,  Bubbles on The Powerpuff Girls, Dil Pickles on Rugrats, and even Hello Kitty herself when Tara herself was very young. In video games, she’s voiced Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham Knight, Juliet Starling in Lollipop Chainsaw, and the one and only Squirrel Girl in Marvel Heroes. WHEW! And all that is just the tip of the iceberg…

We can’t wait for what surprises Season 5 holds as Tara guides Twilight Sparkle to expand her kingdom of friendship to the borders of Equestria and beyond! Come join Tara for panels, fun, and maybe a competition or two at BABSCon 2015.

Tara Strong joins John de Lancie, Cathy Weseluck, Brian Drummond, Brynna Drummond, Heather Breckel, and Tony Fleecs among our Guests of Honor. Register today at http://registration.babscon.com/ and use code PVL10 at checkout for 10% off!

How’s that for a holiday weekend surprise?

The Bay Area Brony Spectacular (BABSCon) is the first convention devoted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in the San Francisco Bay Area.

BABSCon 2015 Packs a Punch with Brian and Brynna Drummond:

BABSCon is pleased to announce that the father-daughter duo of Brian and Brynna Drummond are back again and more powerful than ever! Brian is the voice of many of the stallions on MLP:FiM, including Seabreeze, Mr. Cake, Dr. Hooves, Filthy Rich, Caramel, Sheriff Silverstar, and Daring Do’s archnemesis, Ahuizotl, among others. He also voiced the mysterious ‘Delivery Pony’ from Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks. This is all, of course, in addition to his extensive voice acting and acting career in other works (with 190 IMDB credits)! A few notable mentions of Brian’s career are Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z, Ryuk on DeathNote, Kruncha and Nuckal on the animated lego TV series Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and a number of roles in franchises like Transformers, X-Men, Mobile Suite Gundam, and Inspector Gadget. Brian even voiced Spike in a few 3rd generation My Little Pony movies!

Following in her father’s foot steps, Brynna Drummond is well on her way to becoming prominent in the next generation of voice actors. She voices John Darling on The New Adventures of Peter Pan, but you know her best as Cutie Mark Crusader #4, Babs Seed, on MLP:FiM. Come meet both Brynna and Brian at this April’s biggest brony convention for panels, fun, and more!

Brian and Brynna join John de Lancie, Cathy Weseluck, Tony Fleecs, Heather Breckel and many more of the people who bring us the MLP:FiM franchise alive. Premium memberships are running out fast, and hotel rooms are filling up, so be sure to get yours soon! Register online today at https://registration.babscon.com!
