Sneak Peak of India.........

Mc Farlane has provided us with a preview of his 2007 presentation "India: the story of Boyie", with sketches of three out of his fifteen sections posted on the website now!The media launch will be held on Tuesday December 19th followed by the launch of the website on December 20th.

The images on the website have only served to whet my appetite, leaving me wanting for more! The costumes presented so far are beautiful, I must say, and once again I am loving Mc Farlane's costumes; the blue one looks gorgeous as well as the burgundy and gold.

Looking forward to his launch and more costumes!

Calling all Jamettes

If you are registered with the section Jamette in TRIBE be prepared for a phone call soon, that is if the mas camp can get ahold of you. Someone sent me an email concerning the corsette option of Jamette and I promptly followed it up with a call to the camp myself, to verify the information I received.

The situation is this, apparently TRIBE is calling those who registered in the CORSETTE option of Jamette to advise that for those needing additional support a strapless bra (of your own) might be needed. Apparently the corsette is made from a spandex fabric with boning to the front, and the ability to lace up and tighten the back BUT there is no cup support. Therefore the corsette does not fit like a "bra" but more like a tight tube top. Looking at the photos that little detail of it having no cups might escape some, but it was one of the first things I noticed when viewing the costume, and when I was considering Jamette I preferred the bra option. Imagine a D cup or DD wearing a tube top bra less, see how uncomfortable that might be, especially jumping around all day?

I think TRIBE is trying to put damage control in place before masqueraders collect their costume and are left fuming when it does not fit the way they expected, hence the reason of calling as many people as they can. Now, honestly, if I were registered for the corsette option thinking that it would fit properly I would be quite upset to get a call informing me otherwise, I mean, the costume is NOT cheap. Possibly some compromise can be reached if you think you will not be happy wearing a bra under the original corsette, maybe taking the bra option instead or having them decorate your own corsette.

So, for those who have not gotten the call and need more clarification on this issue you can email or call TRIBE yourself for more information.

Three Sections Remaining in Island People

For those still looking for costumes, Island People only has three section left. At the mas camp the sections still available are Cacti, Sahara Jumbie and Nubians, all female only.

Online registration is still open but you only know which sections are open when you try to register; on that note some people who tried to register online and the costume was not immediately available, were sent an email stating that they will be put on a waiting list in the event that persons holding registrations do not make payment. So, overseas masqueraders still have a small chance of getting a costume online.

Fireman costume wanted


Remember my girl friend who registered in Le Soleil Brule, the same one who was in New York when registration was taking place at Island People, procrastinated and her first choice of Sacred Sand was gone; the same person who ended up in Le Soleil Brule and had issues with the bra sizes? Well, she attempted to switch her Le Soleil Brule costume for Sacred Sand by placing and advertisement over at Carnival Junction, but that did not work out. Then she came to the conclusion that she was going to sell her costume since she was so disappointed with not getting her first choice; when the buyer did not come through she changed her mind and said she would play mas after all. Now, she has yet again announced that she would not be playing mas in Island People and is looking for a Fireman costume in TRIBE! Imagine, just a little over two months to go and some people are still having costume issues, that's why these things need to be trashed out early!



When she found out Sacred Sand was sold out, I did suggest her registering in Fireman as it was her favourite section in TRIBE, and there was still some space available in Fireman at the mas camp and online. But at that time she did not see my logic and it is only now that she has come to a conclusion that she really likes Fireman and felt like she was just settling for Le Soleil Brule. A costume which is not her first choice, and she feels that she would be disappointed come Carnival knowing that she does not like her costume very much. The conclusion is that she is ready to ditch the other girls she registered with in Le Soelil Brule and come join me in Fireman.
