No Love yet

It has been one month and 17 days since D Krewe's launch on September 15th and the website has been "under construction" all this time. Daily I do see progress as 12 sections with prices are now available for viewing, however you still cannot register. Since there are 19 sections in the band "Love is" we await the other seven sections to make it unto the website. Sources have indicated that registration starts this weekend, we shall see.

As for the layout of the website, I would have liked to see bigger close up pics when you click on the links for headpiece etc. Personally I think the photos are too small and you do not get to see the detail of the costumes. In addition to the main D Krewe website several of the "outside" sections also have their own websites; thus far I have found individual links to the sections "Love", "Fantasy", "Tantric" and "Lust". These website provide more photos, contact information for section leaders and even the option to register outside of Trinidad and Tobago.

Mau Brothers - Fantasy



Pois Doux Productions - Tantric


Utopia International - LOVE



Sound FX - Lust


When outside sections are presented this way and not under the umbrella of the band it reminds me of the Poison days. On one hand it is great to be able to communicate with the section leader, and on the other you are not sure if all sections will meet the same standards. It was my experience in Poison that your total satisfaction really depended on the section you chose, especially in such a large band. The quality of costume construction differed from section to section as well as what your "all inclusive" package entailed and even what goodies were in your goody bag.

The trend with the other more popular all inclusive bands to have uniformity with all sections meeting the same standard in terms of everything provided such as lunch, drinks and goody bags ensures that each masquerader will get the same service and amenities. This is a trend I hoped to see newer bands adopt as well, but I guess variety is what makes Carnival so refreshing.

Here is hoping we get some Love this weekend and all sections are finally revealed to those who patiently awaiting D Krewe.
