Alternative Monday Wear and Other Accessories

Last year I discovered these hot shorts online and thought they were PERFECT for Monday wear however I actually bought them at Eye Candy in West Mall which has lots of Carnival accessories. The store is right next to Hallmark and you can get everything from glitter, crystals, hot shorts to fake eyelashes and navel rings. So for those of us living in Trinidad don't worry, you can get nearly everything you need come Carnival between that store, Wonderful World, Samaroos and Micels.



For those of you living in the U.S., or who prefer on-line shopping, you can find these shorts in 6 colours at My Diva's Closet, as well as these sequin shorts that come in gold or black:



On a side note, my Diva's Closet also has fishnet pantyhose and all types of feathered and rhinestoned fake eyelashes.


Then there are these lame shorts found at American Apparel, they have matching bikini tops and I love the colours;




American Apparel has store locations in the United States, Canada and London. Check the website for more details and directions.

For the more adventurous divas among us who want to channel their inner "Nylon Pool" or "Rain" a really cool idea is the Rhinestone Bra and Skirt/Belt, you can get the whole set for $90.00US.



Original Nylon Pool bra (found at Siren's Secrets) for $209.95!!!!


You can get the whole set or either the bra or skirt at on-line stores such as Siren's Secrets which carries a range of crystal clothing and accesories, Flirty Lingere, Cat Dancerz and Od Girl.

And if you are looking to channel your inner Goddess, I found these two bras at Siren's Secrets , however these don't come cheap at $90.00US and $120.00US respectively, the skirt retails for $150.00US





And if you want to go all out to complete your look, glam it up with all the other accesories available such as the chokers, bracelets and head gear


..... the only thing is someone might mistake you for wearing 2006 Rain frontline "costume"......




oops,what am I saying that costume was scrapped after "someone" showed exactly where to buy all the "components" of the costume, but I think the design migrated to Poison in the end, hmmmmm.

hottie - my fellow Dragon princess - whats de plan eh?

saucydiva said...

karabana u have the option of paying for extra underwear for Monday (boy shorts, thong etc.)

Homeless, my receipt has a tribe stamp and a another stamp that says "section and sizes confirmed"

anon I have yet to see any orange hot pants,you did have the option of ordering an extra pair of hot shorts when you registered with Tribe, which can work for Monday wear !

kevian said...

hmm mine doesn't say that, any one else's receipt says that? I have jus have TRibe stamp and a signature.

warrior like me said...

My receipt has the following:

Stamp: Section and Size Confirmed (i had to sign in the box)

Stamp: TRIBE 4 (the Cashier stamped that, so perhaps she was cashier number 4)
Then she wrote in how much I paid down, the date, and her initials.

No stamp on my TLC

And I checked the accounts for all the people I registered and one of my sisters' account not showing any payment made, but they cashed the check though....you know I have a phone call to make Tuesday

amprincess said...

hello people - outside of Tribe's costume distribution @ Cascadia this year they had the all the different boyshorts selling to match yuh section for mon wear, they also had matching earrings & crystal bindis selling. So if u can't find anything by Feb at least u know this can be a last resort option for u.

Anonymous said...

saucy, clearly i lik my head...but I tink I can purchase the hot pants when I pick up the costume...

Hottie Hottie said...

Anon, the plan for Dragon so far is a pair of hot shorts bought from Tribe for Monday. I bought gold sneakers for Monday too. I not wearing any part of meh costume - maybe the arm things, I don't know, depends on how flimsy they are. I looking for a wicked top to rock. I used to wear the bra the Monday, but I've been moving away from that. This recycled sweat thing doh work.

Hottie...I'm in NY. So far, I've only checked on-line sites, but starting this week, I'll hit the stores. If push comes to shove, I'll have my good ol' Reeboks spray-painted. I really want a Puma-style sneaker though, because I don't think a big, clunky sneaker will look good with Fireman.
(BTW...your blog is hysterical!!)

Hottie Hottie said...

Thanks Yankee. This will sound bad but I don't mean it that way. Just go to sneakers stores in areas with lots of black people - you must find gold sneakers. Give me your email address and I'll send you a list of stores/sites you can check.

yankeegirl said...

Mornin Hottie...
It's not bad..funny, but not bad!!
I'll email you for that list. Thks!

Karabana said...

I know you can buy another bottom (I did), I thought I heard they gave a second pair.

amprincess said...

karabana - I played in Peter Elias section in Tribe this year & when I collected my costume he gave me 2 panties. So I dunno if it was just him or if other sections did so too.

Karabana said...

yeah, that was it amprincess, thanks... guess ya never know till you pick it up what extras you may get...
