I am getting so very excited! I've never done anything like this for myself and I can't wait to meet everyone!

The pool at the hotel is on the roof! E and I are so there.
Me too! It's going to be fun.
That sounds like so much fun! I wish I could join! My mom and I will be staying in a nearby airBNB since we'll be doing lots of sight seeing earlier in the week so we probably won't get a chance to use the pool if we're even allowed. Anyone else planning on checking out the Alamo or botanical gardens on Thursday/Friday? We may see you there!
I kinda want to see the Alamo if anything, at least drive by it lol.
Trying to catch up here! Sorry for being mia!

I am 100% sure there will be g3 ponies and merch at PFF! I am planning to bring g1,2,3,4 and HQG1C to sell!

My E would love to create a pony on Saturday. (Me, too!)

@Clipper the dessert social is included in the blue bonnet and deluxe tickets, does that mean we have access to the staff sale?

@Glistening Rainlight and @Mena23 I’ve never been to a pony meet either! I won’t have a vehicle and this will be my first (and probably only) meet. I’m so excited to meet everyone that I may faint!

P.S. I’m so doing the cosplay because go big!

Oh my, good question haha. I'm not sure how I'm gonna keep up with all of this stuff!

Hehe, then I'm glad I ended up choosing to go to this one, I'm looking forward to getting to see you as well!

I've thought a bit about the cosplay thing myself, but I'm not sure I'm gonna do it. I've got a wig that would work, no correct color tail or wings for it though, and it'd be extra stuff to pack.

@Clipper Will there be a unicorn base option?

@Tak the dessert social on Friday evening and also in addition there is a trading social on Saturday evening, that is included with everyone's ticket ;-)

@Glistening Rainlight you should for sure do a cosplay if you have the room to bring a costume! We will be having a costume parade on Sunday (not sure if there will be a contest? I haven't see the full schedule yet.. But I heard there will be raffle tickets given that day to anyone who participates!)

As for the base, it will be an Alicorn PFF HQ exclusive base. I don't have photos of her at this time, but you will be able to pre purchase up to 10 custom bases in advance next week!

More info will be added as we get closer to the event. The full schedule will be posted online, also during the event there will be QR codes to scan on your phone all over the event space for a virtual schedule! We will have maps and schedules printed as well that you will be able to pick up at check-in!

Ohhh, wonderful! Thank you for all of the info!

An alicorn base, eh? How much time will we have to work on these customs? And I take it their pre-rooted hair will be normal length for G1 ponies? Is it in the same pose as Tradewinds, with the head leaning to the side? And will we be able to buy more while we're there or is it preorder only?

I think you will have 2 hours to work on them per session (but not 100% sure). I don't think many will want to spend too much time customizing as there will be many panels and activities going on. So,it will be more of a quick thing where you put the tattoos on, some acrylic paints and can dye the hair.

We should have extras for purchase at the event, that you can take home and customize, but there aren't that many and are expected to sell out (so best to pre reserve some on the ticket site).

Yes its TW pose, and will have extra long white mane and tail (I believe she even has tinsel, but you can easily just pull it out of if you dont want it) that you can cut, dye, style.

We will post more info for sure by next week on this activity (I posted a thread on the PFF facebook group about it and there seemed to be a lot of interest in this!)

Ohhh, well thank you again for the info. I know it was a bit of a game of 20 questions there, I appreciate your patience. I'll have to give it a think.

Thank you Clipper for being so interactive and informative. Your level of responsiveness and attention towards your attendees is something other genres of conventions could only dream of.

What should we do if we need to cancel? :(
Ask someone to pick up any exclusives related to tickets you already purchased?

HECK YES.

Is that 10 per attendee (for those of us with multiple folk coming)?

@Stellaluna thank you!! As for refund policy I do not know. Please email ponyfriendsforever@outlook.com
. Lara or Jana will get back to you on it, since I am not in charge of that and cannot give a direct answer.

@Luvmlp the pool was closed last time? It shouldn't have been . I went to it last year when I stayed there. ‍

@darklys just seeing your question! sorry for the late reply... You may pre purchase up to 10 blank ponies per attendee (to create there and/or take home with you to customize). We may have a few at the event as well :)


Snack Time with Bill and Create a Pony tickets go on sale this Friday. You may join the wait list to be notified when they go on sale! https://www.tickettailor.com/events/ponyfriendsforever/662804/

It was hard to pick the time for the Create a Pony since there still isn't a schedule of other events up. :cry:

Gee well there, I ultimately decided to just go all in and bought four ponies. :| The pose isn't my favorite thing but a white winged unicorn with long hair (and tinsel, even!) is right for a number of the characters I want to make, and at a con it would be fun to work on even if I can't finish them all. c:

Looking forward to all of it, and the lunch too. Who else is going?

Yeah, actually, you're right... I forgot that the schedule that's already been posted doesn't include the pannels.... but I think Clipper said earlier that they won't be during the vender time, so that vendors can attend too. According to this, the create a pony thing takes place during vendor hours:
