Conventions have long been a staple for a variety of alternative lifestyles, and the brony (grown-up fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) fandom is no different. From September 28th-30th, Canterlot Gardens, located in Strongsville, Ohio, hosted thousands of purely passionate pony nuts, who attended panels, bought merchandise, visited with voice actors and dressed up as their favorite characters. With musicians like Andrew W.K. and voice actors such as Tara Strong, Andrea Libman and Andrew Francis in attendance, Rolling Stone was there to capture all the action, art, guests and costumes that made this convention the one everypony should know.
