This past weekend, the New Orleans Convention Center held several events, including an arm wrestling championship and a formal Mardi Gras ball (I even heard a rumor of a barbershop quartet gathering on Saturday). But the event that turned everyone’s head was the 2015 Wizard World Comic Con, where geeks of all ages converged upon the Convention Center in a smorgasbord of colorful costumes and elaborate crafts.
It’s worth noting that because New Orleanians simply refuse to let a good party end, many of these beautiful creations will most likely be walking around the city streets in a few weeks for Mardi Gras (Pro Tip: if you’re a geek in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and don’t go to the Krewe of Chewbacchus parade, you’re doing it wrong). Without further ado, here is a round up of some of the great cosplay I saw wandering around this year’s New Orleans Comic Con.
