Chewbacchus Brings Fandom to Fashion
Take out your light sabers, the wookie calls: it’s Chewbacchus time! Saturday, these oversized ewoks strut down the intergalactic catwalk along with friends like dead-beat dad Darth Vader, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke’s prize pet R2-D2 for the third annual “Set Your Phasers to Stunning” Fashion Show.
One Horn, Two Fronts: Unicorn Rights Group Backs Away From Mitt Romney
by Shay Sokol
Like any campaign that's gaining steam, the movement to get unicorns into Carnival's sci-fi krewe is encountering unexpected distractions. Since the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus banned fans on fantasy from riding among robots and aliens, the Mystic Krewe of PUEWC (People for the Inclusion of Unicorns, Elves and Whinebots in Chewbacchus, and pronounced like "puke") has been sharpening their horns. But PUEWC has now found itself fighting a two-front war. Allegations surfaced that Mitt Romney may be a unicorn, and PUEWC in coordination with AFU (American Federation of Unicorns) won’t have him.
Rains Shift Carnival Calendar
Updated 2.18.12, 2:30 PM
Once again, rains across the metro area forced the Mardi Gras parade schedule to shift. But this time it was a little more than moving up the start time 30 minutes. This morning's Uptown parades of Iris and Tucks have been moved off the Saturday slate. Iris will now roll at 10 a.m. Sunday, and Tucks will roll at 3 p.m. Monday. Meanwhile, the West Bank's big show, NOMTOC, will now parade Uptown at 9 a.m. Sunday. That leaves the matter of Endymion.
Chewbacchus Chic: Intergalactic Krewe's Fashion Show to Strut on the Spacewalk
by Brad Rhines
Expect the Big Top to look more like the Mos Eisley Cantina this weekend, as the sci fi-curious members of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus are set to step out with “Set Your Phasers to Stunning,” a fashion show for the Queen Amidala in all of us. The Mardi Gras krewe's coming-out event gives krewe members a chance to show off their costumes, and provides an opportunity for the rest of NOLA’s drunken nerds to join in on the fun. With a bigger, longer, more prominent Krewe of Chewbacchus on tap for the Feb. 18 march, even the inahabitants of the Outer Rim and Bayous of Dagobah are expressing an interest in coming into town early for the show.

A Tremor in the Course
Krewe of Chewbacchus To Make Inagural Trench Run
WAREHOUSE DISTRICT - One night last week, the Big Top Gallery seemed more like Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine.
In the corner sat “Bar2D2” surrounded by phaser-toting aliens in crisp white suits, Trekkies in blood red uniforms and slick black boots, and a man toting Yoda like Luke in the swamps of Dagobah.
