Silly Filly Con (the first pony one in Kansas) was held at the Shawnee Mission Ramada Inn Saturday, and I made the over 180 mile round trip to attend it. It was pretty small since it was a first time one (maybe 60-80 people), but all start out that way. Events included drawing, speed fanfiction, and cosplay contests, PMV Expo, 4 vendors, and guest Q&A's.
The guests were DJ Shamrock of Celestia Radio (who did a live feed during the con and provided music), Jessi Nowacking fan voice for Vinyl Scratch in Epic Wub Time and several other videos), and who brought a dozen plushies with her whitedove-creations.deviantart… , including a Luna one that killed everybody there (including me).
There were some excelent cosplays there. The top award went to a beatnik Rarity one. Shed.mov Fluttershy (complete with chainsaw and skinned Angel) and Rainbow Dash, Derpy with her Nightmare night costume, and the colt with the fez and newspaper from Ponyville Confidential were there also.
I took part in the drawing contest, and got the award for "most detailed" (a Ponies in Vehicles plug. I'll try and get it uploaded, but it's on 12X18 drawing paper so it'll take some effort). I also had a video in the PMV Expo (clips of Sonic Rainboom set to Iron Maiden's Flight of Icarus song).
I brought along a few of my customs (psycho Twilight and Pinkie, and Octavia, Derpy, and Firefly blind bags, and my diecast NLRAF FA/18 and SE Typhoon planes). Pinkamena was the favorite. Jessi had to take a close look at the Octavia one.
Plans for another con in 2013 are starting to get underway. Hopefully it will be bigger, and maybe i'll bombard it with my customs (for display).
Have some pic's and links:
