BABSCon is truly embracing the spirit of “…and BEYOND!” this year by bringing its My Little Pony fans an unusual, but nonetheless stellar, new guest. We present to you a true Rebel Princess of voice acting: Grey DeLisle-Griffin!
(Check out her awesome announcement video here!)
To call Grey a star of animation doesn’t do her justice. Roles such as Azula in Avatar: the Last Airbender; Lady Briarwood in The Legend of Vox Machina; Asajj Ventress and Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Clone Wars; the titular Mandy on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy; Lana, Lola, and Lily Loud in The Loud House; and the iconic Daphne Blake in Scooby-Doo (since 2000), plus her over 1,500 other roles, should be enough to cement her bona fides. “But why invite her to a con focused on Friendship is Magic?” we hear you ask.
In part, because a VA of her stature loved MLP so much, she freely donated her voice to the fan animation, “Epic Rage Time,” as Derpy. In part, because she’s BFFs with Tara Strong and has worked so often with folks like Tara, Lauren Faust, and others that she’s practically family: Wonder Woman in DC Super Hero Girls to Tara’s Batgirl & Harley Quinn (creator: Lauren Faust, story editor: M.A. Larson, with episodes by G.M. Berrow & Cindy Morrow), Frankie Foster in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends (produced & story-edited by, and character based on Lauren Faust), evil babysitter Vickie to Tara’s Timmy Turner in Fairly Oddparents, Puppycorn to Tara’s Unikitty in Unikitty, twins Todd & Ty McNulty to Tara’s Dil Pickles in Rugrats…you get the idea.
Grey joins Guests of Honor Nicole Oliver, Vincent Tong, Peter New, Devyn Dalton, Brian Doe Chua, Andy Price, Jeremy Whitley, and Dana Simpson, with a couple more yet to come.
So register now—don't forget those last few sponsor tier memberships!—and book your hotel room for April 15–17, when we’re going BEYOND!
PS: We can always use more volunteers. Get fed all weekend, get free swag, have lots of fun. You know you wanna…
