i must say i am wowed at some of the costumes tribe has put out! espcially the ones wit the fabric painting etc adds a new look to the band, on a down side that snow owl costume is overly familiar? did someone say SILVER MIST? not feeling the back piece at all the only other thing thats got me again! is the fact the mens costumes all look a hot mess from the pics i seing nothing interesting severly watered down in the shaddows of the female counter parts you would have thought 2008 would have made them work harder on them, tribe wont be seeing my money for 2009...........:-)

OMGGGG!!! Bird of Paradise Frontline...here I COMEEE!!!..Also loving Kiskiee, Phaesant and Caged Canary.........ALL FRONTLINE.....oh Gosh I hope I get my first pick =(

While I will be playing with Tribe, I have to say that Spice definitely has one up on them for jaw-dropping hotness!

Reality is, most ppl are back-line - and these costumes are good enough, but not spectacular.

empressnatts said...

Nice costumes not draw dropping for me ...waiting on the close ups and price

DC Chica said...

The costumes are nice - but the ones I loved were frontlines, namley Birds of Paradise, Brazilian Macaw and Pheasant. I also loved African Love Bird Backline and the male costume is the best in the bunch.

Although the same designer did that 'Borat' swimsuit for both Spice and Tribe, I would say that it doesnt help that both of those costumes are blue! I not feeling that look at all, I keep getting flashes of Borat in his green swimsuit.

I waiting to see how things develop - namely prices and registration for us abroad

Thanks for the posts Saucy. I played with Tribe before and I give them kudos for organization and presentation. Somehow I thought the costumes would tell a better story for 2K9 tho. Feathers don't equate a bird costume and if it wasn't for the "Birds of a Feather" theme and the section tags, I would not know what some of these costumes are supposed to portray because they look like other "non-bird related" yet thoroughly feathered costumes I've seen before (eg. I could put Copia from Kaotic in Tribe and call it a white ibis, but it isn't).

I like the fact that Humming Bird added a little beak for effect. That's something I didn't notice in other sections even though I've heard it's there.

Well we all know when it comes to costumes, seeing them up close and in person makes a BIG difference so I'll be heading to the mas camp to get some close ups and take pics for myself and my friends overseas.

Just as i thought, i love the costumes. There are some that don't wow me and others that have me slack-jawed in awe. I think i'll be playing frontline next year because i need to have plenty feathers and fanfare.

bammykake said...

can someone tell me the "ups and downs" of being a frontline. my friend says fronliners dont have any fun because they have to look good for the band. is this true. what's the major differences of being a frontliner and a backliner besides the costumes. a lil help people i have to know which costume to choose

innerouterdivaPON said...

I dunno for other masqueraders, but in my opinion the ups and downs would depend on the band. If you're in Island People, I can tell you that one "down" will probably be the fact that you won't get the frontline costume you paid for if you get one at all (this happened to me 2 years in a row before I bailed out of that IP ship).

This year in Tribe, I wasn't in frontline per se because my section was just a with or without wings option. I remember that when it came to crossing the stage the section marshalls (dunno if that's what they're called)pulled all of the people with wings to the front of the section as if we were a kind of frontline. In that respect I guess if you're frontline you're expected to be the "face of the section", but this is just when crossing the stage.

We enjoyed ourselves as much as the other masqueraders and we were never made to feel as if we had to stay pretty for the cameras.

The "ups" of being in frontline are that the costumes are usually more extravagant which is great for people like me who enjoy channeling the inner diva for Carnival. For those who don't like bulkier costumes, backline might be the better option.

thanks for that... for some reason i'm stuck between "topaz" and "hummingbird" the more i see the "hummingbird" the more i like it.. i thought that dark colors make you hot. but i guess since it's a bra and bottom it doesn't matter i wish i could have them all (sigh)
