Carnival Tights

For ladies who wear Carnival tights getting a perfect match can be a problem due to the limited brands and shades available. The most popular brand is Silky which sells at Samaroos, Wonderful World and Micles in Trinidad; this brand comes in low waist as well as sheer to the waist and sells for around $35.00 TT or thereabouts. So far this has been my brand of choice since it matches my skin tone, though it is a bit shimmery, as I prefer the matte look which appears more natural.

Me in Silky brand tights (note the shimmer):

So when I saw these tights that Afro Chic wore for Carnival over the years looking like she was not wearing anything at all I wanted to know where she got them.

Afro Chic in Sensacion Tights

According to Afro Chic the tights are quite sturdy because she was able to wear them both days with no runs, the shade she wears in the photo is Carmelo ( think that's the same shade of Silky tights I bought as well) and she even went out on a field trip to show us bloggers exactly where to get these tights:

The name of the place is Pasarela and it is located on Frederick Street, Mall 58 (same mall with Cleve's).

The store is ON Frederick Street, so you can see it from the outside.

The available colours are: Brown, white, carmelo (which is the colour that I use), Canela, Arena, Salmon, N/Claro and N/Caf.

The brand name of the stocking is SensaciĆ³n and it is made in Colombia.

XL is the biggest size and the measurements for that size are: 160-180cm and 69-79kgs.

They do have some in stock now as well as samples, and they will be getting in for Carnival as well.

Gerad Kelly's website is up

Children's mas band leader Gerad Kelly launched his 2008 presentation "How?When?Why?" on September 23rd and the website is finally up! There are 6 sections available for the kiddies and prices range from $795.00 to $1495.00, I swear some of the kiddies costumes are just as expensive as an adult costume! So, if you are looking at options for children's mas check out "How?When?Why?" as only a few children's bands are available online.
