I would first like to state that even though Wyatt has been quite forthcoming in discussing certain issues he just wanted everyone to know that he is also very much involved with other developments at the mas camp and as a consequence could not respond to the comments when people expected him to.
Also, we basically came to an agreement that the MAIN issue in all this is communication since he is saying that all sizes are catered to at the mas camp yet that information is NO WHERE on the website. It was also admitted that the size chart, which looks similar to Ronnie and Caro's is incorrect as Wyatt himself had ladies try on different bras at the mas camp and they did not match the size chart, for example a lady wearing an A cup is not a Small but an Extra Small according to his measurements. While it must be a great job as a guy to be measuring bra sizes I think that the costume designers should have sorted all this out BEFORE registration begin, Wyatt is one man on a mission but unfortunately he is just one man.
From the impression I got it is also quite disheartening to him to be constantly reminded of the issues that arose this year, while he feels that people are not giving Island People credit for the fact that they are trying to focus on improving for 2008. While I agree that there have been some changes people are not as easy to forget when something goes wrong and until Island People have proven themselves for Carnival 2008 the fact is that people will always bring up past events; Wyatt you need to grow a thicker skin and not take things so personal. No one is beating you up or assigning blame all on you.
So where we are at is they ARE listening, albeit it might be too late for some, and Wyatt is working feverishly to provide a helpful size chart and would like all masqueraders registering locally to come in for a fitting. He also indicated that masqueraders registering online can request sizes that are not shown as they have costumes up to XXXL at the mas camp! On the point of the website he did say that changes will me made to include ALL information concerning sizes and costumes. Finally, there was a costume adjustment center at the mas camp this year and there will be one in 2008 so in the event that changes need to be made to the bikini or belt provisions have been made for such.
It was nice running into Wyatt as we were able to agree to disagree and agree at the same time. Thanks for listening!
