Announcing Heather Nuhfer

heathernuferannounce_by_ashleynicholsart-d7vzxmeNightmare Nights Dallas is pleased to announce that none other than Heather Nuhfer, of MLP Comics fame, will be gracing us with her presence this October during our celebration of the Mare in the Moon. Heather is an award-nominated writer for many comics, but we know her best for her work on the My Little Pony comic series by IDW, including such arcs as the “Friendship Ahoy” arc and the acclaimed “Nightmare Rarity” arc. What better Guest of Honor to have than one who truly knows the struggles of the Dark Princess?

Heather’s other kid-friendly works include graphic novel adaptations of Monster High, Scooby Doo, Sesame Street, and Strawberry Shortcake, amongst others. She also writes for adult and all-ages properties including The Simpsons, Hawken, and The Vampire Diaries. Heather’s first original prose novel, titled Weirdest, is set for a 2015 release. When she isn’t writing, Heather is busy crafting. She occasionally designs and knits custom pieces for film and television.

Heather Nuhfer joins Tabitha St. Germain, Britt McKillip, and Amy Keating Rogers as a Guest of Honor for this year’s Nightmare Nights Dallas. So join Heather and our other Guests this October 24th-26th for panels, events, fun and excitement. Nightmare Nights Dallas will not only feature our Guests of Honor, including My Little Pony’s talented artists, writers, and actors, but also Community Guests from the fandom we know and love…and those will not be the only surprises we have in store for you! Be sure to visit us at NightmareNights.net and follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@NightmareNights) for all the latest news, contests, and rumors on our Dark Princess’ return.

Musician Spotlight: Shroo

We wanted to start a new trend where we highlight one of our Guest Musicians with every announcement. This time it’s Shroo. Both a digital artist and musician, Shroo got his start DJing when he was inspired to start mixing after drawing Vinyl Scratch. Shroo also produces music in addition to mixing popular pony and non-pony music. His favorite genres of music are Drum n Bass, Hardcore and Trap and he mixes them all in his live sets on PonyvilleFM. Be sure to catch Shroo at our EQuestria music concert at this years Nightmare Nights Dallas and hit up his Youtube, Soundcloud, and Twitter for all his latest mixes.

 

Vendor Spotlight: Ashley Nichols

Just like our Guest Musicians, we also want to spotlight one of our vendors. This time it’s Ashley Nichols. Ashley is a Bay Area artist who specializes in bright and colorful prints, buttons, keychains, belt buckles, hooded scarves, and animated gifs. Ashley is open for commissions of digital art at her DA, so be sure to hit her up to make your ideas come true! She is also one of the lead artists for Nightmare Nights Dallas and created the wonderful piece of art with this announcement. You can see all of her great art at ashleynicholsart.deviantart.com where you can find links to her social media and a gallery full of special pieces.

Community Guests Announcement

Community Guests Announcement

NMND-community-guests-3

It is with great pleasure that Nightmare Nights Dallas announces our Community Guests, who will take part in this year’s celebration of the Mare in the Moon. They’ve contributed greatly to our fandom, whether through craftsmanship, through charitable work, or by sounding British.

It has been said that you will never hold a pony nor pet it’s mane, but neigh! This is not so! You can indeed hug a pony thanks to our first community guest, Sherry Bourlon, and her amazing talents at WhiteDove Creations. A professional seamstress and pretty pony plushie producer, Sherry makes some of highest quality, show accurate plushies in the fandom. She has also been making Native American regalia for over 10 years. This master of her craft will give away, to one lucky attendee of her panel at NMND, one of her amazing plush creations! Come and learn the (dark) secrets of her craft and have your chance at taking home one of her ponies for your very own!

Our next guest lives a humble life, filled with hard work, a clear head, and a mug of good cider at the end of the day. A true embodiment of the Elements of Harmony, he is known throughout the world as “The Manliest Brony.” Dustykatt, host of Stay Brony My Friends, will be joining us in our celebration of Nightmare Moon this coming Nightmare Nights Dallas. He is known for his gracious efforts towards charities and causes for good through his “Manly Challenges,” and his interviews with VAs and staff from our favorite show. You’ll see him this October as he answers fan questions, auctions one-of-a-kind items at our Charity Auction, and makes some of our attendees consider growing facial hair.

And finally, a scholar and gentlecolt, Foalpapers is journeying far across the sea to join us this October, to spin tales of ponies and the Classics, to educate us on the various mythological influences of My Little Pony, and to be a classy gent as well. As our Master of Ceremonies, Foal Papers will lead us in our celebration of our Dark Princess and make sure we enjoy the finer things in life.

Nightmare Nights Dallas 2014 memberships can be purchased here

We hope to see you at the Addison Crowne Plaza near the Galleria this October 24th-26th for days of fun and nights of fright.

Till Her return, bide…
