Raiders Rewind and Remix!!!

For those who are interested in Virgina Caribfest which takes place July 14th to July 15th , costumes are now up on the official website for viewing. One section from the troupe "Fantasy of Culture" is already sold out!

While checking out the costumes I noticed this costume called "Lieutenant" from the troupe "Pure Passion":




Which, to me, looks very much like Island People's "Raiders of the Desert"


And the best part is the price, it costs ONLY $100.00US which includes food and drinks on Caribfest, a goody bag and party discounts. That price is exactly what I personally thought Raiders of the Desert was worth seeing as it is an "outfit" and not a costume (Jean and Dinah also falls in that category as well if you think I am only bashing Island People!!). So for those who played in Raiders you can rewind and remix your costume for Caribfest, hey for the price it cost you might as well use it twice!

Check out the rest of the costumes here.

Do you want to be Branded?

I remember after Carnival in 2006 getting a similar email from TRIBE like this one I got yesterday:

"Branded" - The Movie is looking for extras to do carnival all over again!

If you have your Carnival Costume and will be in Trinidad

Sunday 1st April, 2007 then we need you!

Come and play Carnival again on Sunday 1st April!

Please call Kristen @ 772-4289 for more info!

I did happen to see the movie that was made in Trinidad last year called "Backlash", only because one of my mom's co-workers had a small speaking part ( he was the driver of the truck who was unceremoniously thrown out of his vehicle on the Lady Young Road) and he gave her copy of the movie. Although it can be considered a C- movie (the acting was so lame) it was not too shabby as it was shot entirely in Trinidad, and the island looked beautiful! The best part of the movie, to me, was the scene shot at Mystic Hemp where the two female lead characters were fighting oblivious to the owner of Mystic Hemp who was jamming to some music he was listening to on ear phones!

For the life of me I never understood why almost every scene was punctuated by a shot of masqueraders in costume, I guess that symbolises "Trinidad". Oh, and I have never had a cocktail served to me by a waitress on Maracas beach, but that does happen in the beginning of the movie Backlash!

So, if you are in Trinidad this Sunday and your costume is in tact call Kristen, you might actually get a snippet in the movie and forever be branded on celluloid!
