Best Dressed at the Fete - Bishops All-inclusive

Bishops:
These two former beauty queens definitely have an unfair advantage over the average party goer in that they have been schooled by Peter Elias in fashion styling, however they look great nonetheless.


My pick for Best Dressed at Bishops among the photos on triniscene are these two ladies; I especially like the top of the lady on the left !

2 Ha'quai

Small band 2 Ha'quai finally updated their website. The band launched last year and photos from that launch can be seen on trinicrew.com. The band comprises 5 sections and is all-inclusive. From the photos of the launch I see one section has been upgraded, and frankly speaking some of the other sections needed a little tweaking as well. I firmly believe even though your band may be small the quality of costumes should not be compromised. That being said I do like Fancy Fancy Sailor and Overnight Tahiti.

The sections and prices are as follow:

Fancy Fancy Sailor:

Price $ 1300.00 (F)
$1500.00 (m)

The Queen's Sailors:

Price $1700.00 (F)
$1200.00 (M)

Voyage from San Luca



Price $1800.00 option A (F)
$1750.00 option B (F)
$1200.00 (M)


Overnight Tahiti

Price $1900.00

Pirates and Wenches

Price $1800.00 (F)
$1200.00 (M)

The mas camp is located on 1 Nepaul Street, St. James

Eye Candy



So I went to West Mall yesterday to pick up my tights at Micles and popped into Eye Candy to see what Carnival accessories they have in stock. Well, the bad news is that they will not be carrying the sequined hot shorts that they sold last year, the good news is that they do have in stock the hot shorts pictured on the mannequin in gold, silver, pink and white for $89.00TT. You can also find the same shorts online for $9.99US as well as sequined shorts for $18.00Us at My Diva's Closet .

Personally I did not find a wide variety of accessories as compared to Wonderful World which has the same stuff and more. In addition to body jewels, on sale are a variety of false eye lashes, glitter, coloured hair spray, makeup, sequined caps and feathered masks. Eye Candy also has the silky, matte, low waist tights at $45.00TT. If you are playing with Harts I was informed that Eye Candy got a sample of all their costumes and have accessories to match. The owner of Eye Candy, Tricia, plays with Harts as an individual religiously every year so she is the one stop shop for Harts' masqueraders.

The one accessory Eye Candy carries and Wonderful World does not is shoes! They have these really cute sequined sneakers that come in silver, bronze and gold and are perfect for those not wanting boots but looking for something fancier than plain sneakers. The sneakers are priced at $250.00 TT.

The only thing is that they are not leather, made in China from a synthetic material and felt somewhat stiff to me. I did not try them on so I have no clue how they feel on your feet, but if you are still looking for shoes they are worth checking out.
