Vintage Saucy

Yesterday saw me playing truant and staying home from work, so I decided to do some cleaning and lo and behold stumbled upon some Newspaper clippings I had of the few times I appeared in print. Among the archives is this gem taken at the launch of Tantra a special section in Poison 2001 which was headed by my friend Darlene Beddoe and her partner Giselle Joseph. That's me in my Tantra Baby T chatting with Paul Richards:

This was the second time Darlene was involved in a section, her previous experience being under the banner of Galvanize with Marlon, Tisha and Wyatt in alliance with Rocky when they brought a very popular special section in Barbarossa. At the moment I cannot remember the name of the costume but Sandra Hordatt was the designer and Leasel Rovedas was photographed wearing the costume which made the front page of the Express Carnival magazine that year.I do recall being at the mas camp on Carnival Friday helping them hot glue decorations to the costumes however!

After that first foray into mas the trio split, Rocky remained with Barbarossa and eventually migrated to Poison, Galvanize went to Poison and are now a part of Island People and Darlene also went to Poison and is rumoured to be bringing a section with Pulse 8 for 2008. So there you go people, a little Carnival history and a glimpse at how long I have been involved in this whole Carnival drama outside of being a masquerader; I have helped made costumes, promote sections and seen the inside of a mas camp one too many times over the years and I am quite privileged to have had the experience.
