MechaCon is the largest Anime Con in New Orleans, and runs this year from August 23rd to the 25th. There will be a ton of things going on there, including Cosplay and AMV competitions, with a wide range of guests to see and events to attend. What makes this memorable for me is the Red Carpet Affair, their opening night formal dance and party. The theme this year is When you wish upon a Deathstar, and they are encouraging costumes that are a blend of Disney and Star Wars, in honor of the franchise changing hands. I particularly like the Deathstar as Micky Mouse image, it is quite a hoot.
