BabsCon, the first major Brony convention in the San Francisco Bay Area, has pulled off one of the most incredible feats in Brony convention history: gathering all of the voice actresses of the Mane 6 at the same event.
Ashleigh Ball (Rainbow Dash, Applejack) will be joining fellow VAs Tara Strong (Twilight Sparkle), and Andrea Libman (Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy) live as guests of honor at the Bay Area Brony Spectacular in San Francisco. As of this writing, Tabitha St. Germain (Rarity, Princess Luna) will round out the Mane 6 via Skype.
Other voice acting guests of honor at this convention will include Cathy Wesluck (Spike, Mayor Mare), Nicole Oliver (Princess Celestia), Peter New (Big Mac), Bryan Drummond (Mr. Cake, Ryuk, Vegeta), and Brynna Drummond (Babs Seed). Honored guests from the show's staff include Jayson Thiessen, Meghan McCarthy, M.A. Larson, Amy Keaton Rogers, Big Jim Miller, Natasha Levinger, and Josh Haber, as well as official book author G.M. Berrow and comic artist Andy Price.
Not bad for a convention's inaugural year.
BabsCon is set for April 18-20 at the SFO Hyatt Regency.
