Guests of honor are the crown jewel of all conventions, Czequestria included: they are voice actors, scriptwriters, directors and others that work directly on the show, thus the conventions are a great opportunity for them to meet the fans of their work – as well as an opportunity for fans to meet people from their favorite show.
Aside the people who are directly involved in My Little Pony development you can meet various community guests like musicians, artists, animators, performers and also engineers from brony fandom. This creates perfect opportunity for everypony to meet & greet them! You can personally tell them your appreciation or maybe spark a collaboration with you!
Guests of all kinds (VIPs and community) will be posted on this page as their attendance gets confirmed. We can’t reveal all of them at once, but we can show some of them which are already confirmed and they are happy to see Prague and its beauties including local cuisines.
So… which guests are coming to Czequestria 2019?
Elley Ray – the voice from Equestria and much more!
Elley Ray is known to the brony fandom as a voice of Mistmane, one of the Pillars of Ancient Equestria and the Element of Beauty, but her talent reaches much wider and further! She has performed in over 300 theatrical productions with hundreds of on-camera series and movies to her credit and voiced literally thousands of animated series, animated movies, commercial campaigns and games. During her more than 40-years-long career, she has traversed the stages, film sets, television and radio studios.
Beside My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you can hear her voice in animated series like Corn & Peg, Hotel Transylvania, Care Bears, The Neverending Story, as a narrator in the television series Guilty Rich and many others – check out the IMDB and see yourself!
And because the life is not just acting itself, Elley teaches voice acting at University of Windsor where she received an Honorary Doctorate of Laws. She has also juried the Gemini Awards, as well as the Dora Awards and the Emmy Awards for Best Animated Series and Best Voice. If you want to know more, see her webpage.
Last but not least: Elley is looking forward to seeing us at Czequestria! If you feel the same, be sure to let her know on Twitter!
ILLUMNATION – a music to turn the darkness into light
ILLUMNATION is an acoustic dark-folk band founded in late 2015. Starting as a solo project of Velvet R. Wings (vocals, harp, flutes, songwriter and guidance) quickly became a duo when Andy Feelin (bass guitar) joined and together they performed at many brony music events.
Most probably, you already met them: both Velvet and Andy were members of Przewalski’s Ponies and visited most of the brony events in Europe, including Czequestria. Despite their original band ended it’s activity in November 2018, their passion for music did not stop with end of that era. ILLUMNATION brings the darker corners of the world to the light through the words and music.
For this year Czequestria, they join with Soul Strings (acoustic guitar) and we welcome them all at Saturday evening concert. The feelings in their strings, brought to you on the wings of shadows, will surely enlighten you.
Prince Whateverer – heavy metal and pop-punk musician
Guitarist, vocalist, and producer from the south-east coast of United Kingdom. Since late 2011, when he released the “Beyond Her Garden” cover (originally by WoodenToaster), his heavy metal and pop-punk music with a light electronic and acoustic flavor become popular among many bronies all over the world! His debut album “Rediscover” was released in November 2013 and he released three more albums since.
He performed at many conventions in the UK, Germany and the US – now he’s going to join us at Czequestria 🙂
