Goody Rag.. ..

Well I must say I did have a of an opinion about TRIBE's goody bag that was lacking in goodies especially when I heard that Island People got a fabulous goody satchel filled with real goodies like eyelashes, slippers and body jewelry. But if it is one thing I can say is that TRIBE was consistent in that everyone got basically the same goody bag and everyone did indeed get a BAG as part of the promised ultimate package experience.

So it was with surprise that I FINALLY laid eyes on what some Island People masqueraders ended up getting; the goody RAG. Before seeing it myself I had doubts of the fact that it really existed, I mean did they run out of satchels for everyone knowing how many masqueraders they registered?

Anyway, if you want to see a photo of the goodies, sans bag, take a look at "I'd Rather Be in TnT's " blog about her Island People experience and you will be rewarded with a photo of the goody rag. I must say though the slippers were cute and a nice touch, though they ran out of colours and sizes!

Myth....or Magic?

Amid rumors on Facebook that TRIBE’s costumes have already been on display and seen by persons who allegedly broadcasted this fact on the radio (96.7FM) I did some investigating of my own to get to the bottom of this story. Consequently several interesting tid bits of information were revealed in my quest:

*Costumes are in the first stages of design and screening.

*Loyal customers will again be rewarded with the T.L.C. card….process begins in May/June!

*Expect costumes with wings (as many of you have been begging for) as well as beautiful and unique headpieces with lots of feathers!

*Band launching will be SOONER rather than later; no date revealed as yet.

Jumbie!!


Brian Wong Won who produced the Jouvert band "Mas Jumbies" is taking the Jumbie to Broward Carnival 2007. The joint effort between Brian and large band Major Players will see "pretty mas" by the name of "Jumbie" hitting the streets if Miami.

The private band launch is carded for late June with the public launch immediately following a week later. Jumbie's website will be up next week and we can expect to see costumes on the website the last week in June.

Now I really admired Brian's vision of jouvert mas and anyone reading his blog detailing the journey to realisation of Mas Jumbies knows that it was a labour of love. I can only imagine his take on "pretty" mas for Broward Carnival. For updates keep checking Brian's blog and remember the Jumbie website will the launched next week.

p.s. You can see photos of Mas Jumbies for Jouvert on Brian's blog.
