Special guest from the machine realm: Sweetie Bot project

We are excited to announce the attendance of a team behind the real life pony robot – the Sweetie Bot project! These guys are building a robot that looks and acts like an Equestrian pony.

Don’t miss the panel presentation where four team members: disRecord, mutronics, Renha and Zuviel, will tell you about the latest news of the project and answer the questions from the audience.

They will also bring a working prototype, so don’t forget to come to their table to give a brohoof to Sweetie! Here are few words from them:

«Sweetie bot Project is a small team of enthusiastic brony engineers from Russia interested in ponies and robots and working together on the concept and realization of Sweetie Bot.

Our mission is to take advantage of high tech magic to bring ponies into life in the robot form. We believe that in future humans and pony robots will be able to be friends and live together in peace and harmony.»

Be sure to check the http://sweetiebot.net and YouTube channel for the latest news and updates!

Also the article about their current progress has been recently published on Equestria Daily.

Trotting here from distant land: Przewalski’s Ponies

If you’ve already visited Czequestria at least once, you will surely remember the brony music band which comes to visit us every year and always brings beautiful songs to every pony at the con. This year we are proud to announce that Przewalski’s Ponies are returning once again! Now we’re looking forward to not just to listen to their songs, but also towards the reunion with our long-time-no-see friends.

Przewalski’s Ponies – Andy Feelin (bass guitar), 4/3 know also as Chord (guitar) and Velvet R. Wings (harp, vocal, percussion) – will present a new acoustic feature with Celtic harp. Old songs, new sound! Also Velvet R. Wings will perform her new songs by her solo project ILLUMNATION.

Charity auction: Hippotherapy is Magic

info_libussa_transparentAs tradition dictates, Czequestria 2017 – like almost every brony conventions  – will feature a charity auction! This year, we will be supporting a more equine cause – Hippotherapy , which is a form of Equine-assisted therapy. A close contact with the animals positively affects patient’s motor skills, coordination and balance. Haven’t you ever thought hugging equines could be magical?

Anypony can donate a mlp-related item to the auction and all the money will go to support the above mentioned magical thing.

For more information (also how to donate) please refer to Information – Charity auction section

The first “Czequestrian” from far, far away land!

As with anything complex, MLP:FiM was created by people of all walks of life. And thanks to these folks we’ve been able to experience the joy of this wonderful & mesmerizing TV show. And apart from the voice actors, it’s the script & lore writers that create the actual story for those characters. And even though there is now more than handful of those that have been involved with this show, there is only one that is quite more close to Czequestria than any other…

Without further ado, it is our utmost pleasure to welcome book & script writer and a person, that’s definitely no party pooper –  M. A. Larson!

Among the episodes that have been created by his pen for TV show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” belongs the highly acclaimed The Return of Harmony, Luna Eclipsed and Magical Mystery Cure. Apart from writting he just loves attending various conventions and thanks to this he has quite the fame among the brony community. And if catching him offline is difficult, he can always be found on Twitteru @M_A_Larson or be contacted via his web site.

Apart from writing the story scripts (of which he participated on eg. Foster’sMy Gym Partner’s a Monkey or Gravity Falls) he does actively develop his own book series called Pennyroyal Academy which is up for third part release on 22nd August!

Sadly due to these duties he won’t be able to participate in person (as you could’ve guessed from the picture above), but you won’t be spared of his voice as he will call in via Skype.

And why is Mitch A. Larson closer to the Czequestria than any other person on MLP:FiM crew? Well, the story begins 4 years ago in city of Paris, at the BronyDays convention. During the signing session he was handed the CZ/SK bronies flag and before actually signing it, he surprised us with a question when we will organize a convention in Prague! As we were quite astonished, we’ve managed to reply along the lines that we are preparing something and that we will surely send him an invite. This was actually a big nudge for us that has lead to creation of Czequestria, as a first Czech-Slovak brony con. So in short, he is the responsible person for making Czequestria a reality! Hopefully, one day, he will attend in person and stop avoiding us!

Cosplay? Cosplay show for everypony!

fancy_libussa_cosplayCosplay is a traditional part of any fan convention, including ours! So if you are thinking about creating a costume of your favourite character then go for it! It’s most certainly welcome and if you’ve never tried it before, don’t worry – it’s great fun!

No need for years of experience this time – The Cosplay show on this year’s Czequestria is open to anyone who will dress into a costume and become his/hers favorite Equestrian or Equestria inspired character.

For details, see the Information – Cosplay show menu. We are looking forward to see all your costumes!

Guests? Guests! The very first one revealed!

Guests of various art professions are the adornment of all bigger social events and this year’s Czequestria won’t be an exception.

We are honored to introduce the first of our guests: the Slovak VA known to bronies for giving her voice to Pinkie Pie,  Lenka Debnárová!

After finishing her studies at the university of musical acting she has been involved in dubbing as well as both radio and television moderation. Her voice brings many foreign characters to life, such as Padma Patil in Harry Potter or Stephanie Barnett in Big Bang Theory. Currently you can also see her on the biggest Slovak TV Markíza as a Weather reporter.

Besides her family, she also deals with horses in her spare time – certainly quieter than Pinkie Pie 🙂
