How was your BABScon 2015 /mlp/? Stories? Anecdotes? Did you cosplay?
Was it fun?
I went and met with a few different artist. Bought some prints, and found Petirip and Greg at some lone table. Petirip was pretty sociable. Greg was surprisingly withdrawn. I don't think he realized how many people there were fans of his work, asked for a picture with him, and he paused for a moment before agreeing.
On top of that and all the parties and horse drama it was amazing.
>Be finalist for VA contest
>get booted in first round
>bunch of people backstage are there trying to console me
>they're taking this worse than I am
>I don't even care, I had fun
>Purple Tinker hands me a pin for $50 bucks worth of stuff at her booth
>Arrive at booth later
>All sorts of shirts, prints, and signed merch
>"So you want any of this signed Tara merch?"
>"Nah, 50 bucks in topkek please."
>go a few tables over
>pay for a print with a shitty meme
To be fair about "The Voice: Equestria" during last year's competition contestants played three rounds before elimination instead of one. It was a slight change, but it made the competion brutal.
purple tinker promised to sell my art and then fucking lost it in her hoarder house
PT gets angry at every con. Last Bronycon she flipped a shit when she had to wait in line like everyone else and show ID to get her badge. Because the volunteer staff from Baltimore didn't give her celebrity status immediately.
Everyone was telling me that, and I really think I was the only one up there who genuinely only cared about having fun.
And it was fun, I would have liked my criticism though, it was the real reason I did the whole competition to begin with.
did you see the tantrum he threw when they didn't give him a booth this year
like he completely forgot about the tantrum he threw last year at the con so he decided he would boycott bronycon entirely
who wants to hear logic when they can slam the convention they got kicked out of twice instead?
did you guys hear that a fat slut got food thrown at her and claimed it was assault and battery
can we make it a meme
a foodstuff that also happens to share it's name with a meme.
Memes are now currency.
>Another fat slut who couldn't move on?
>was it PT?
Really? Only 2500 attendees? They call themselves the second largest pony convention, but they're just barely a quarter of the attendee count of bronycon? Either bronycon is just fucking massive, or other pony cons just aren't as big as I thought
>someone favorited a tweet she was mentioned in
>"omg guise ther sendng hit sqwads aftur me"
The funny thing is she's making that list now, when Bronycon isn't till August. Nobody announces a guest until they're 100% confirmed.
Unless you're purple tinker and you announce DeLancie early and nearly fuck it up
Oh yeah, I think I saw you around. Good shit.
He knew my cosplay, that was sorta it.
A buddy of mine got all fanny flustered when you apparently shoved him out of the way to get a shot out of that strippers tits. kek.
So I finally got to meet the HN people and man what a mixed bag. Capper was fine but standoffish, but Pony Toast is the most annoying raging horsefame grubbing autist I have ever met in my life. Literally unbearable to be around.
Hadn't met capper before this weekend. Pretty fun guy to be around, doesn't seem to take things too seriously.
Watched him get really confused when some girl asked him for an autograph after I talked to him
>Tfw im 22, and i fucked a QT 31 year old woman
She knew how to suck cock like a fucking champ. we met at the 4chan party on saturday, but apparently she doesnt browse.
The 31 year old was into some kinky stuff and probably wouldve fucked me on the couch at the party on sunday, but we got really caught up in her room because she wasnt sharing it with anyone
Im officially over younger women <3
its not that hard.. just be good looking, and talk to girls
she was the fourth girl that night that I talked to.. and thats all you have to do.. yknow, talk to the girls that are standing by themselves.
she was so thankful that she gave me a massage and bought be breakfast in the morning.
I wouldnt have been able to do it without my wingman egging me on to go talk to girls and getting over the hump of anxiety that was stopping me in the first place.
The first girl I talked to after being convinced was a tranny.. I still talked to him for a couple minutes just to get practice, and then off to the next I went
Conventions in general often play host to wild sex parties.
Think about it: You have a bunch of sexually repressed nerds with similar interests locked in a hotel with each other surrounded by booze and high off whatever interest they share (Ponez/Anime/Wheelbarrows).
Sex is inevitable.
Horribly awkward, often humiliating, always hilarious sex.
So next time you go to a con, cosplay as the most attractive character on the show, make yourself look presentable,that means shave, shower, try to look like a civilised fucking human being, and most importantly, don't be fat and whiter than paint.
And bam, you're rolling in 20-something awkward virginal nerd pussy.
I am normally a sort of quiet guy and generally try to carry on in the assumption that people have no idea what Rainbow Dash Presents is. I mean, we had people come up to the table who'd never heard of our stuff. I was pretty quick to agree to signatures and pictures, though. I didn't mean to seem withdrawn. On the first day someone had given me a screwdriver that was more alcohol than orange juice. On the second I was hopped up on caffeine. On the third we were just kind of hanging around. What were you dressed as and when'd you come by?
Have sex with me, Greg.
Wat. My stream is okay! How you know my stream a shit? Maybe you weren't paying attention!
These things are forbidden, anon.
Petirep did really well! I actually didn't have any prints to sell since I'm still not much of an artist, but I had download cards that I successfully gave away. I've been hanging on to those for ages, so it's nice to have them out there now. So given that Petirep flew cheap and drove some of the way to save cash, he made back expenses and did well, whereas I'll need to figure out something to do to earn money if I go to another con.
I dunno. It's kind of the same question, "Why do you like pony?" There are reasons I can give, but it's mainly an emotional thing. I just think monkeys are funny.
Well shit. However, the focus groups show that monkeys appeal to an important key demographic. Namely, the guy writing the scripts. Also, ages ago, Faust promised there'd never be humans interacting with ponies, so we just inserted apes and monkeys instead for all the fics with humans in them. I always kind of liked the idea that humans were a distant and unpopular myth and that most ponies would assume we look kind of like other primates.
> I always kind of liked the idea that humans were a distant and unpopular myth and that most ponies would assume we look kind of like other primates.
I like this.
No, I don't clop. I know there are pictures out there that are drawn very well, but I've never been able to stop seeing the characters as though they were dumb horses, so I always imagine their sex would be, like, dumb horse sex.
>If you want to bang, dress as a sexy character and talk to people
I remember there was a girl there who wasn't even cosplaying as anything. She was wearing short shorts, fox ears, and a fox tail. She was there with her boyfriend and she was very pretty, but I remember having a lot of internal questions after seeing her. That was during the night of the parties as well.
I heard Seth got some action - though that's second-hand. I have no idea.
>She was wearing short shorts, fox ears, and a fox tail.
did she have short hair and was a blonde?
she seemed annoying.. always make "mew" noises and shit. she proposed to her boyfriend apparently since I was talking to them in the smoke area
she had a hot body though. Fuzzy is always a fun sight to see because of all the hugs she gets.. but shes a total slut and she loves being a little whore, but shes only 17.. but I was rail the fuck out of her while pulling her hair and calling her what she is. but she also has a boyfriend.
Everybody was telling me that Seth was really cool and totally laid back. He was at the /mlp/ party, but I missed him because Petirep confessed he doesn't like to drink and we didn't hang around. Had it been only myself, I am a very friendly drunk. The more I drink, the more everyone is my friend. I also missed the EQD panel because theirs had a slight overlap with ours.
I did meet Capper, though. He's a nice guy. He had booze, too, but again, Petirep doesn't like to drink, so I sort of flitted around during that stuff as opposed to getting very drunk and then telling everyone sauced compliments about their shirts or whatever.
capper does love his booze.
Seth is the epitome of laid back.
Capper is big, tall, loud and social, seth is short, small, quiet and reserved.
one's from /b/ the other's from /co/.
They're like yin and yang of pony news
I had a pretty long day but you've really taken the weight off my feet there.
Of course. You can have this one too.
The con ran a sweatshop operation in the background. Pretty much everyone but the hambeast-boss are butthurt, so much shit happening everywhere. Also, notice how tickets for next year started before the con ended, it's because they owe a boatload of money to the jews.
>The con ran a sweatshop operation in the background.
All cons are run by volunteers.
>Also, notice how tickets for next year started before the con ended
Almost every con I go to does this and offers a discount even. This sounds like much ado about nothing.
Blackgryphon who is of legal age is giving away his underage 17 year old (who he started dating when she was 16)
That girl is the biggest slut in the world, and she loves to flaunt how slutty she is at every convention that she goes to
shes probably fucked so many other girls inside the relationship. and this is coming from someone thats good friends with her.
Fuzzy? yeah, I know Fuzzy.
how can you not know fucking Fuzzy? only the biggest beta neckbeards not know Fuzzy because shes literally the most social 16 year old girl at every convention she goes to. She'll give you long and questionable hugs every single time you greet her and say bye to her.
Gryphon is getting cucked
I FUCKING LOVE YOU GUY
SINKING SHIPS IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE
DOES PETIREP SMELL AS NICE AS HE DRAWS
WHATS YOUR PLANS FOR WHEN THE RIDE ENDS OR HASBRO MAKES THE SHOW UNWATCHABLE
SEE YOU SOON
It's a little creepy how enthusiastic some members of the trans community want everyone in their group to do HRT or get surgery.
Given the high depression and suicide rates of the community, it almost seems like a misery loves company situation.
So she wants to be a dude but keep her bouncy bits. So some other dude wants to be a chick but wants to keep his tackle. The fuck is the problem?
She was born female.
She has a male boyfriend.
She dresses female at cons.
She dresses as a male when NOT at cons.
She has not had surgery, nor hormone treatment, she is not trans.
She is a woman who dresses in drag when not around pony
Nothing at all. I was actually on HRT myself until I realized I can live as a woman full time just fine without spending several hundred dollars per month on hormones, doctor's visits, and therapy, not even counting for the surgery. And thanks to the internet it's not hard to find a guy who doesn't mind that a girl has a penis.
>Wonder how that post-con thread is going
Any of ya'll wanna talk about other shit you did at the con?
Jesus Christ, guys.
Just stick/get stuck where it feels comfy, let others do the same, and call it a day.
Who fucking cares, and if you do WHY.
plus there were some really cute trans folks at BABS
That's not BABScon, that's San Francisco. I thought it was weird for the first couple of years after I moved to the city. Had one in our office go FtM. She was cool, and he's still cool.
Did anyone figure out what happened to that last DJ's set? They cut the show hard at 2am, but there was talk of him getting to do a set on Sunday.
I just know that the cops were called due to issues with some of the parties, and the hotel forced the con activities to shut down early.
Though I'm sure they probably let Omni do his set sometime the next day, being one of the biggest musicians there and all.
There were a lot of people and mini-parties Sunday night, and even Monday morning. Also, as autistic as Toast is, I was impressed at the lack of spaghetti in his little song.
Toast knows his shit. The dog dick shots were kinda fucking creepy though.
I'm referring to last yea when a story was fabricated about some little girl almost being abducted by somebody at the convention last year.
The parties who supposedly saw this happen thought it would be a great idea to wait two days after the convention to say something on a TUMBLR POST of all things when it was too late to do anything about it. Mind you that when pressed for info these people who supposedly saw something took off and ran from their tumblr and the post got over 60k notes. From people taking this story of dubious quality as gospel.
Were the concerts really that bad?
I never go to the concerts at cons since I don't really into raves, but I always figure there is a decent turnout of people who just want to jump a lot.
I was at Closing tho, and if the concert dancers were fewer than that....that's really sad.
The only thing I did at the con was buy a ticket and go to to closing ceremonies.
I went to the parties mostly and hung out with my friends for the rest. most of my friends didnt even go to one event because we were having too much fun doing other things (still pony related) were there for the people, not the panels and shit.
also, girls are so fucking easy there.
she wasnt skinny, but she wasnt fat.. I'd say curvy.. like the kind of curvy that gives you a raging hard on when shes bent over because of DEM CURVES. her tits were kinda lacking though. she had brown hair on top and halfway down her hair was dyed red or another color I think (red green colorblind) and her eyes were a beautiful shade of dark emerald green.
I'd give her a 7/10 irl, but in pictures she looks like a 5/10, so I wouldnt post a pic of her to show.
ive been texting her ever since the end of the con and were hooking up again in May.
I cant get over her.. I've never had an older woman before and I love a girl with experience.. I loved her reaction to finding out that I just recently turned 22.. since shes 10 years older than I am. It was hot when she was talking down to me like I didnt know any better. yknow, like a girl that knows what she wants.
okay, I'll do it in a little bit
You can even spoiler that link - no fig newton like her would ever see it :^)
Oof. I feel kinda bad for the musicians.
...except blackgryph0n, because he inexplicably had a table in the show talent autograph room...
That's right. He had a table in the room it took $20 to get an autograph in. Let that sink in.
We both 100% know a relationship would never ever work since she lives in Arizona and I live in SoCal. its only about messing around.
I wont give a full HD picture
her body really is fuckin hot as fuck though.
nah, I havent even been into the fandom for over a year. I went mainly because of friends and now I'm finishing the episodes that I have watched yet (s4e17+). I got too distracted with irl stuff
yeah, she looks better irl.
and thanks everyone! I never actually hooked up with anyone before and the only reason why I was able to get laid was taking the first step.. TALKING TO EVERY GIRL THATS STANDING BY THEMSELVES. if she aint interested, wrap up the conversation, party hop, and talk to the next.. she was the fourth girl I talked to.
Some people can be awkward to talk to; had one guy talking to about some anime I knew nothing about. The easiest thing you can do is just ask people questions about whatever they're talking about.
True man, glad you had a good time too. :^)
