Not just another trade show
We were delighted to see so many customers, friends, and fans at the Halloween and Party Expo in New Orleans. We announced new products like Bricky Blocks build-on accessories, Moving Mouth Masks, and of course, all the products new to the 2015 catalog!
Naturally, no trip to New Orleans would be complete without a parade.
We teamed up with our sci-fi soulmates, the NOLA-based Krewe of Chewbacchus to sponsor a massive, sci-fi parody block party in honor of his holiness, the Sacred Drunken Wookie. The Chewbacchanal event occupied the entire 4300 block of Saint Claude Avenue with large tented areas and outdoor art installations. We all danced the night away to DJ MicPhedusha, Oscillation Information, The Dead Music Capital Band, the Brownout Brass Band and more. And if all that weren’t enough, we got to meet Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in Star Wars and Andy Richter!
Our heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved with the Krewe of Chewbacchus and the incredible event that sprang from their galactic imaginations. Additionally, a special shout of thanks goes to our videographer and parade companion, Michael Lee Ring of filmsaboutlove.com!
