It was mine and my daughter's first BronyCon as well. And it's true: immediately I felt that I was amongst "family", or at least people who get it and have as much love for MLP as I do. My daughter loves the whole cosplay and the artistry of most creations, but truly I am the MLP freak lol. I don't have many negative things to say about this whole experience, in fact my daughter and I are already planning for next year and which cosplay outfits to show. The community is so open and friendly, though the staff might need "a little cleaning up", but we cannot wait until 2018!
