Gerard Kelly....

In keeping with the vein of Kiddies Carnival, another band launches today. Gerard Kelly will present his 2007 presentation "Wonders of the World" at a family day, complete with face painting, bouncy castle and horse rides for the kids as well as performers such as 3 Canal and Surge advertised to attend.The band launch takes place from 2pm to 7 pm at the Jean Pierre Complex.

Gerard Kelly is also producing a section in Dream Team called "Tempo" and you can get further information from his website on both projects, however no photos of the kiddies costumes are posted as yet.

Rosalind Gabriel 2007

Rosalind Gabriel's website has been updated with her 2007 Children's presentation "Many faces, one Nation". Each costume has a huge "face" depicted on a backpack and from the drawings when you look at the costume without focusing on the masquerader it looks like a giant costumed person; very nice effect. As usual the costumes are fantastic, but pricey.

The very elaborate section Faces of Elizabeth is $1595.00, my favourite "Faces of Shahrazad" is $1695.00 and I see this year she has a section reserved for "teen girls" called "Faces of Mother Nature at $1695.00. When you consider that adult all-inclusive costumes can be had for the same prices of some of these children's costumes they are expensive, but having seen Rosalind Gabriel's costumes before I know each costume is beautifully made, well crafted, very creative as well as the kids do get full use of the costumes. They participate in kiddies Carnival each weekend starting from February 3rd 2007, as well as their big parade on Carnival Saturday AND on Carnival Monday and Tuesday!! In addition, Rosalind provides her own music truck on the road and the option for parents to participate as she designs a costume for those wanting to accompany their kids on the road.

To her credit each year Rosalind Gabriel has sponsored costumes to the girls and boys of St. Mary's Home in Tacarigua. From her website it states that the 50 costumes are rotated each weekend of competitions so that at the end of Carnival each child would have been afforded the opportunity to "play mas". St. Mary's Home is an orphanage and they welcome donations; last Christmas I donated toys, books and foodstuff and it would be nice if those of us who reside in Trinidad can also make an effort this Christmas to donate something, no matter how little, to these children.

For those of you with children who would like them to play mas in 2007, have a look at Rosalind's website as she is offering online registration. And even for those without children,you can simply enjoy looking at the costumes as they are not only beautiful but show that at least with the youth, the creativity in designs of our Carnival costumes is still there.
