BABSCon 2015 is upon us in only two days!
But, even though we're not done with 2015 quite yet, we thought we would introduce you to the shape of BABSCons to come.
Courtesy of the astonishing response we've gotten from events like Dustykatt's HoofWrestleMania, the surprising prevalence of bronies in the world of professional wrestling, and acknowledgements of recent trends within the larger brony fandom, we came to the conclusion that a broadening of our focus away from being purely My Little Pony would be for the best.
Other conventions, such as DrawnCon and Animation Celebration, have already pivoted toward a theme of Western animation as a whole, so we naturally didn't want to find ourselves once again competing for a niche. Consequently, in addition to ponies, BABSCon will begin to feature the very best from the world of professional wrestling.
And do we have an announcement for you! Our first Guests of Honor as we enter this new "Attitude Era" of BABSCon are the eternally aggressive John Cena and the Eighth Wonder of the World, The Big Show, Paul Wight.
In addition, in honor of this move and our first guest, we will be re-branding ourselves as the Bay Area BIG SHOW. What can we say? We like the acronym.
So, get ready for the marriage of pegasi and piledrivers in April 2016!
