News from Island People Mas

Carnival aficionados,

We invite masqueraders and supporters of all Carnival Bands to experience a launch like no other in Trinidad & Tobago. No matter where your loyalty lies (LMAO) we welcome you to enjoy our 'ground-breaking' presentation this Sunday, August 17, where we take the level of Carnival Launches to 'new heights'.

We’ve given you an enchanted forest, a desert of beauty, and brought out the animal instinct in you. Sunday, look towards the sky for a view of the Earth.... Heaven on Earth – It’s what you make it.

A Special THANK YOU to all of our loyal supporters!

“The Fun Has Really Just Begun”

Oh! By the way... Although you may have seen the unofficial leak of our 2009 Carnival Calendar on the internet, we invite you to collect the printed version of it this Sunday at the Launch. We’re flattered to know our annual calendar is such a hot and awaited item that someone felt the desire to share it.

And since they are not upset about the "leak" *cough *yeah right* cough* of their photographs HERE THEY ARE!!

I took the liberty to remove the calender details from off the pics so you can have a better look at the costumes:

More pics from Island People's launch will be coming to you on Sunday night/Monday morning. Pity I will not be able to go LIVE as I did for TRIBE as I will be attending the launch as a regular patron with no media access to set up the equipment.

I am afraid there is simply no way to run a laptop for hours plugged into thin air!! So, make note of that for all those who will be wondering why there is no "LIVE FROM ISLAND PEOPLE LAUNCH" as I did last year.

Ladies and Gentlemen Island people knows how to make a male costume look damn good and masculine at the same time. I feel as if tribe and IP should join forces letting tribe do the women and IP the men that would be a killer combination.

cause from what i saw from tribe only African Lovebird could get my money but i only seeing half of this male costume and i ready to sell my house for it. I really looking forward to seeing the rest of the male ideas.

DeeDeeB said...

trinbajan in toronto said...

LOL at alphamale86. Your too much!! I must admit that those costumes look damn good. The section I wanted in Tribe is sold out, so onto the next band.
