I got my boots!

So after hearing from Carnival Jumbie that Natalie's boots have doubled in price, now starting at $600.00TT I started seriously looking online at alternate footwear. If you want the whole low down on why Natalie's prices have raised take a read of Carnival Jumbie's blog.

Anyway, there I was feverishly searching my favourite sites for boots and by the way Overstock.com has some great footwear and good prices, I ended up at Amazon.com and found this pair of boots for a grand total of $15.00US!! It was exactly what I was looking for which is a knee high pair of wedge boots that fit the calves snug as my calves are skinny, and it looks comfortable. The ONLY thing I do not like is the fur, since I am thinking it might be too warm but it is fur TRIMMED so that means it is not lined with fur and I can, with much patience, remove the fur. I think a pair of scissors and a razor blade will do the trick.



I intend to spray the entire boot in gold and then decorate it from there since I already have an idea of what I want the finished product to look like.

There are other colours in a similar style for more money such as this brown one which will go quite well with Island People's Bear costume:

The launch of La Brea


2007 Medium Band debutantes Image Nation will launch their 2008 Carnival presentation "La Brea" on October 14th at the Creative Arts Centre, University of the West Indies. The Launch is scheduled to start at 5 pm and admission is by invitation only.2007 masqueraders can collect their invitation from the mas camp which is located on the corner of French and Buller Streets Woodbrook.


One More Section Sold Out in Harts

Despite being one of only two large bands that are NOT offering their masqueraders that all-inclusive package (Mc Farlane is the other) Harts is steadily selling out sections like no body's business! This time the section 300 is sold out bringing the total count to seven sold out sections.

I have to also add that Prince of Egypt female costume is priced at a whopping $3735.00 for the section leader! As gorgeous as it is that costume is pretty expensive, especially as it is costume ALONE at that price.
