Animal Instinct update

Just a tiny bit of news for those curious if to buy those leopard print boots; I have been reliably informed that though there are sections using animal prints those sections are a minority. The costumes have been described as "different", "Hot" and "Hot". As usual Island People is trying to keep as much information under wraps as possible before the unveiling !

TRIBE section names!!

Thanks to 'rah for the following information (good looking out girl!)

Butterfly Bliss
Water Nymph
Autumn Sprite
Pixie Dust
Black Magic
Lady of the Lake
Goddess of the Chase
Myth of Babylonia
Mystical India
Silver Mist
Sun Goddess

To add to that I think Black Magic is Monique Nobrega's section, Butterfly Bliss is Gail Cabral's, Mystical India is Quita Correira's and Silver Mist is Leasel Rovedas. The teaser costume in yesterday's Express is "Autumn Sprite".

Not so blind item (borrowed from Perez)

Which popular band is apparently working magic to have their website up and running on Monday. I am not sure if to believe this myth until I see it with my own two eyes!

Seems like ONE band launch is too much for this band, plans are in the works to go above and beyond what everyone is expecting and have TWO launches instead. The first a Broadway style production at Queen's Hall that will leave guests wondering if they are seeing "Lion King" and the second billed as a huge party for their sexy masqueraders. Hope people do not act like animals when they realise the first launch might be special invited guests only!!

Finally how could it be that one plans on keeping a launch where all the rum in Trinidad is made and one does not secure a bar license? Reads like a Hollywood production to me, are we to believe then that the venue was the demise of the launch that failed to take off?

Breaking News.. Harts Launch Canceled!

Due to "Administrative Issues" Harts band launching, slated for tonight, has been canceled!! All persons with tickets can either go into the mas camp for a refund or put the payment towards their costume for Carnival 2008.

However, please note that the mas camp WILL be open for registration on Monday July 30th and the website is expected to be up in two weeks time.

Looks like I will have to be making a trip to the mas camp on Monday to get some costume details (and hopefully photos) for all those overseas masqueraders who were eagerly anticipating viewing Harts costumes tomorrow.

This has been quite a surprise today! That means TRIBE's launch will officially be kicking off band launching season for Trinidad Carnival 2008.

It's a Jungle out there... Amimal Instinct update

Let's take a breather from the TRIBE madness, if you will, to announce that the Sonia Mack section for Island People's 2008 presentation Animal Instinct is not Panther, as I first reported, but "Black Widow Spider"! The rumored colours for this section is black and red.

Black Widow

Other sections that have been mentioned are:








I am awaiting confirmation on the rest of sections from my source, but we can definitely look forward to all sorts of exotic animals from Island People at their launch on August 12th.
