Describe yourself in one sentence:
Painfully honest and forgetful at times, but always looking for more cider!

How did you become a brony?
Friends of mine who are into 4chan showed me a few episodes, I was sold! Not long afterwards I found myself at a brony meetup. After a few meetups I joined the orga and the rest is history.

Favourite pony?
Applejack

Favourite activity at a convention?
Lot’s of interaction with the community. Or like we say in Dutch: Gezelligheid!

Fun fact about yourself:
My OC “Groentje” (Lil’ Green) has an Android-robot as cutiemark, because he makes smartphone apps. For an Earthpony, software is the closest thing to magic.

What is your motto in life?
Normal is boring, let’s not be normal.

Describe yourself in one sentence:
The cosplaying, gentle giant of the Dutch community.

How did you become a brony?
An old friend of mine once asked me if I knew what was a brony. I said ‘no’ and he explained it. And I was like ‘okay’. Sometime later, he sent me the link of season 1, episode 1. I watched it and those three cursed words appeared: to, be, continued. So I watched the second, third, and so on until I was caught up midway season 2.

Favourite pony?
Nightmare Rarity

Favourite activity at a convention?
The charity auction!

Fun fact about yourself:
From fanfic writing, role-playing, to game mastering, I have done it all!

What is your motto in life?
Try to use as little ducktape as possible!

Staff - IT, Marketing

Describe yourself in one sentence:
I’m that guy who always finds an excuse to have another party 😀

How did you become a brony?
Back then, I had a girlfriend who was a fan of the show and she suggested me to watch it too, and we all know the tremendous consequences of watching that first episode.

Favourite pony?
Being the party pony I am, you’d expect my favourite pony to be Pinkie Pie. But it is actually Rainbow Dash in my case!

Favourite activity at a convention?
Partying with all my fellow crazy folks!

Fun fact about yourself:
23 years into life, and I still haven’t figured out the secret to matching socks…

What is your motto in life?
Don’t take yourself too seriously, doing so sucks the fun out of life.

Describe yourself in one sentence:
Hello there! I’m the most introvert that has ever introverted and have too many hobbies (crochet, tea, sewing, all the tv-series, food, retro fashion and of course mlp.)

How did you become a brony?
I came upon mlp memes on the icanhazcheesburger forums. I was very curious about what the fuzz was about and watched the first episodes. I had no idea that there already was a huge community behind it. I discovered that a friend from school also enjoyed the series, by randomly drawing a ponysona for him. This friend brought me to my first ever café meet in Utrecht. I loved the community immediately and met my soulmate that day. We’re still together to this day. My big obsession with the mlp series faded naturally over time, but my love for the community will never go away. As the wise saying goes, you come for the ponies but stay for the bronies.

Favourite pony?
A shared first place between Fluttershy and Twilight.

Favourite activity at a convention?
Well, this is more a thing we do at the dutch meetups, but I love Ponyhunt!

Fun fact about yourself:
I hate coffee but I’m obsessed with tea.

What is your motto in life?
You eat healthy for your physical health, but sometimes you must eat unhealthy for your mental health. Or the different version of this motto: I frigging love sushi.
