ILLUMNATION – a music to turn the darkness into light

ILLUMNATION - Velvet R. Wings, Andy Feelin, Soul StringsFan made music is the integral part of brony fandom – from original songs to remixes, musicians of all genres let the melodies bloom and fly to an listening ever-thirsty crowd. And we are proud to announce more musicians coming to Czequestria 2019!

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.

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.

Give them a warm welcome and enjoy their music!

Cosplay is a traditional part of any fan convention, including ours. If you are thinking about creating a costume of your favourite character then go for it! It’s most certainly welcome and even if you’ve never tried it before, don’t worry – you are going to love it, Pinkie promise!

We support casual cosplaying for fun, so no one has to worry to show up together with skilled cosplayers – we all were the beginners once and this is one of the best ways to start, so Join the Cosplay Show and have fun!

Elley Ray – the voice from Equestria and much more!

We are slowly moving toward the day we all meet at Czequestria, so it’s about time to introduce first of our Guests of Honor!

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 & PegHotel Transylvania, Care BearsThe 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!
