Costume for sale...already!

Well remember I wrote about Carnival Junction in an earlier post and how my friend got her costume sold on that site earlier this year. I have a habit of checking various Carnival related sites ever so often and to my surprise when I checked Carnival Junction today....1 costume is up for sale!!!!

If you want to respond to the ad you need to visit Carnival Junction.

And if you have a Goddess Backline or Frontline for sale 2 people are interested in buying those as well.
Looking through the mas galleries on triniscene many beautifully made up faces stood out.Since I have posted links on make tips, inspiration and do it yourself guides, I wanted to also post these faces so you guys can see real people wearing makeup for Carnival. Some of them are elaborate while others are simpler but still impressive, and as you can see the faces look great with the makeup still intact even though the photos were taken at different times throughout the day:

Creative Monday Wear

When I took a peek at Island People's online registration page I saw that they are offering a complimentary pair of boy shorts for Monday wear. Going by what was offered this year I am guessing their masqueraders are going to get some sort of top, boy shorts and headband to wear for Monday. That is such a cool idea, see I have no problem with people not wearing full costume on Monday but I still think the band should look somewhat uniformed and providing Monday wear achieves that. I know Brian Mc Farlane also gives Monday wear, and I am hoping TRIBE gives us a nice little baby T/T-Shirt and a sailor hat so we can be a band of sailors on Monday (pssst allyuh hear meh TRIBE!)

But for those who don't get Monday wear I went searching through the archives on triniscene.com looking for creative ways to "hook up" a costume for Monday. I think these folks did a good job!

TRIBE in Poison- 2004


I am loving their spin on the Indian Costume for Monday, they made their own outfits!

Sequin Shorts like what is sold at Diva's Closet:


Ms. Thang went creative on the top Island People provided for Monday wear:

If it is one thing I have come to realize as I searched the Carnival Monday photos is that more people than I thought did wear alot of their costume on Monday. Probably since I have never worn any part of my costume on Monday in recent times that I never noticed or paid attention to the fact that many people do wear theirs!

Quite a few females in most bands wore both the belt and bra while others wore the bra alone. It took lots of searching through those photos to find people who were NOT in some part of their costume, even with Island People who provided Monday wear I saw several photos of girls wearing their costume.

And it seemed like almost everyone in Tribe came out in everything except their headpiece on Monday!

Dream Team and Genesis News

I totally forgot that Dream Team's Mas Camp was opened on Friday the 29th, so I will be making a trip there next week to see how everything is set up, as well as check out the costumes in person and get a peek at the prices!

From their website, which is not up and running fully as yet, they have indicated that the mas camp is ready for registration.

Genesis will be hosting an open house on October 6th at their mas camp at Picton Street, I guess that launch held last Saturday at Pier 1 was the real thing!Their registration begins on October 9th.


More photos of Genesis' launch can be found at Triniscene, Islandevents and Trinipulse
