As seen on the world wide web

The Internet is an amazing thing; it hosts a wealth information that can be found while sitting in the comfort of one's home, it can be a social utility that connects people with the same interest around the globe, it is even a place where one can shop, plan a trip or find pieces of Carnival costumes with the click of a mouse.

I cannot take credit for discovering all of these on my own, one blogger found the spider legs, while searching for Monday wear for another blogger I came upon the body suit and the body armour was also a result of looking for roman costumes for the hubby. Edited to add that I also found the Spider Legs ONLY selling online.

This isn't the first time that I have found pieces of Carnival costumes online either, I found the crystal Nylon Pool bra and the entire (defunct) Rain costume for sale at one website. Once designers in Trinidad use something that is seen on the world wide web trust me, it is bound to be found sometime or the other.

This is all in good fun, I am not sending anyone to plagiarize costumes, but it is quite interesting to see where some "designers" get their inspiration and also to have an idea of the prices of these items! Quite interesting indeed:

Roman Breastplate - Fantasy Costumes $24.99

Harts - BEN HUR

Spider Web Lace Bodystocking - - $14.19

Island People - Black Widow Spider

Black Widow Spider Costume - My Divas Closet - $60.00

Black Widow Spider Legs ONLY - $24.99

Island People - Black Widow Spider

Finally although this is not an "exact" copy of TRIBE's Myths of Babylonia, clearly one can see that it is certainly close enough to draw inspiration from:

Sexy Greek Goddess Costume - $39.000
