The Brony Chef
The Brony Chef, a professional chef that, has been creating recipes inspired from the show since 2012, author of The Brony Cookbook, which contains 30 recipes inspired from the ponies on the show! Plus some Voice Actors collab.
The Brony Chef became a brony in 2012 thanks to his niece that forced him to watch the show, but when she was diagnosed with leukemia, he started to watch the show and he created a strong bond with her, and he started creating recipes for her, unfortunately his niece, passed away in 2013, but instead of leaving the Fandom, he got inspired from the memories of the amazing moments he had with his niece and he started creating recipes for the fandom. And now he comes to Midwest Brony Fest to cook for us… So what are you waiting for!!
Emily Jones is the host of Pegasisters Live! Are you a member of the chatty box?! Emily and Lexi stream every other Sunday and talk about ponies, cosplay, video games, and animation!
Emily is also a voice actoress and vocalist! You may know her from the popular animated series “C-Students” as Nicole and other additional voices as well as many Brony written songs such as “Here On The Moon” by 4Everfreebrony, as well as “Turning Over a New Leaf” by Mandopony! She was also featured in other songs like Sim Gretina’s “Game of Love” and “Cherry Tree” along with Donglekumquat’s “Tub”!
When Emily isn’t doing horse related things, she is geeking out over Max Goof and playing Smash Brothers. She also loves to cosplay and has been cosplaying since she was 13 years old!
Solrac (also known as Yaplap) unintentionally joined the fandom after posting a “Leak” of the Second Season’s MLP:FiM Intro, only to blast away the viewer with an ear-shattering, yet oddly entertaining screaming cover. Since then, Solrac continued to scream various MLP:FiM songs, collaborated with various Brony Musicians, and teamed up with ACRacebest to create the infamous “Bronies React” series.
Besides shouting to the top of his lungs, Solrac has a great vision for new and original projects, such as the Never-Ending tribute to Fan-art: SOLRACUEST or the upcoming Animated Series: Solrac Ventures. Is it his burning passion to create, or devastating anger he applies into his work? Or his love to entertain an audience? Or his flowing mane, that make Solrac so widely loved by almost everyone he meets.
If you see him walking around the con, don’t be afraid to greet him, he loves to make new friends! (Don’t worry, he won’t shout at you, too loudly.)
