Yeah know, if I heard that statement before I seen the show... Yeah, you would've known that I would of thought, fer sure. >.> ...Delicious! =D
And I wouldn?t have blamed you.
I hope you have a good time and bring back amusing stories.
The brony meet-up was a lot of fun. The group was quite visible, what with the pony t-shirts and the large brony-banner that was held up. I couldn?t resist the urge to have a little fun:
Me: "My little pony? Aren?t you guys a bit too old to be into that?"
Brony: "No, you see, there is this new show, called Friendship is Magic, and it?s actually really good and has amassed quite a fanbase in a relatively short amount of time."
Me: "Oh yeah? But why is Rarity the best pony?"
Brony:" Yeah, really, the show has taken in qui...." *realization, grins* "She isn?t, Applejack is. Welcome to the meeting"
I didn?t bother to count the total of bronies, as people were coming and going all the time (I guess to go play video games), but there were about a dozen bronies present at all times. One had brought a Twilight Sparkle Plushie he bought off someone on deviantart IIRC. I don?t recall the name of the gifted seamstress, but the quality was top notch. I was quite impressed with it.
Much time was spent on people recounting how they stumbled upon the ponies, generally discussing the show and just plain getting to know one another.
Of course I had to show off my sculpted FIM stuff as well. I was completely overwhelmed by just how well received my Applebloom
I had only one painted copy with me, and that one sold for 20€ (~ 29$) in an instant, and those who missed out on that particular Applebloom already put in orders for more- so I guess I?ll be painting Appleblooms for a while.
