Are you feeling lucky?

Just when I thought nothing could be worse than the "claw boob" costume comes this, fighting for the title of worst costume design of Carnival 2009.. even worst costume design EVER!

Hey at least the nether regions are "lucky" with those strategically placed horseshoes!






No wonder several committee members of THIS band (which may never get off the ground from what I am hearing, owing to "very poor registration") have flocked to be birds of a different feather!!!

Not to mention leaking the heavenly calender from the printers by persons affiliated with THIS "lucky" band was such an idiotic move that it backfired and the saboteur got FIRED from their day job!

Never a bacchanal free moment in Trinidad Carnival!

My my that is really one HUGLY costume lol.....Another note, from what I have heard as well about this "lucky" band is that they are about to go kaput.

afro chic said...

This is what...the frontline or something?

afro chic said...

My bad...clearly it was done for Kiddies Carnival next year. Cause no SANE thinking sensible minded ADULT going to be wearing no damn HORSESHOE on dey head and bress right? RIght? :|

Saucy aka "The Sauce" said...

lol that IS the frontline

dougla_1 said...

Oh gorm, the things some models have to put up with, i.e putting up with a "safe" box decending from heaven for awesomeness sake. Here in the name of luck, this unfortunate lady had a horse shoe placed in her eye and places unmentionable, where only a nerves of steel surgeon can deftly removed them without further injury!

buublenut said...

NOT EVEN IF IT WAS FREE!!! but I wonder if people would lol

but really to be lucky there needs to be a horseshoe up her a$$ too lol

Sorry saucy - hope that don't break your posting rules :(

dajewel1982 said...

whoa!!!! and its frontline??? these horeshoes really throwing me off!!

CARNIVAL ENTHUSIAST said...

The headpiece I could work with....the horseshoes in the other places are a bit over the top and not sensible. Designs don't always have to be so literal.

Tr|n|gYa| said...

I going to go against the grain and say I like the costume, especially the colour! :)

sexy eyes said...

I love the colour and the head piece, but um yeah a lil too much horseshoe :D

babydoll said...

I agree wit sexy eyes. Great Color and headpiece but without all the horseshoes!

squeezle said...

I absolutely adore this shade of purple. It is my very favourite colour. And I will never be able to look at it again without visions of this monstrosity crossing my mind.

Damn my eyes!!!!

HQ said...

That is purely terrible! What were they thinking? Oh no!

elsa said...

I hate to be the first one to say it. I was browsing through the ELEMENTS band, and guess what I found, the very same purple horseshoe costume, as a frontline. I couldn't believe my eyes. I must admit, I love the headpiece, and the color, but the feathers on the crotch, and the horseshoe, please give me a break, and to think this costume was approve by the Designing committee, oh my good Lord.
Come one ELEMENTS BAND, let's be more creative.
To be honest with everyone, I now see why Saucytrini, is so critical when critiquing a band, I am so tired of the same thing over and over.
I must say TRIBE has the best costumes by far, I do like some of Island People.

joe said...

Merci me! after I thought Mirage was horrid they come with this gobar.Check dem horseshoes on lady luck buss nah, aye fadda!!!

CandyWash said...

Hhmmm... (i'm taking a moment to get my words together to comment on this costume...)
I like the colour don't get me wrong very nice colour.
But WHAT IN JESUS NAME??? ( i had to bring the lord into this because he alone know what the designer/s of this was thinking)
What they had some left over horse shoes and decided to use it up before they rot or something??? And what is with all the feathers???
And this is the "frontline"?? Mercy Mercy Me!! Hhmmm.... and the poor misguided soul that will be wearing this on Carnival Tuesday... Hhmmm.. i shall pray for her!!!

Carnival Diva said...

IS THE FL? LOL OOH LORSH...*goes back to find something, anything good*

comes back...ok, people will you PLEASE STOP doing DRUGS!! It's not helping your creativity at all!

salty said...

i dont find it's so hideous.

joe said...

Salty, are you seeing what everyone else is seeing? The only nice thing on that costume is the colour feathers, but that's about it.

Mas-ah said...

hey, don't hold back now, tell us what yo guys really think.

I personally like the colour very much my worse costume thus far is that blue complicated strappy mess from island people.

you know the one with all the different connectors and buckles and chains and complication bar none?

put a picture of that up to this one, seriously?

this is the worse?

not for me!

Saucy aka "The Sauce" said...

Heavenly Sky Mas-ah? Hmm, interesting choice! For me it would be Mirage and Lady Luck FL (the one pictured here). I can go through every band and find a worst one eh, doh get me wrong.. but the concept.. the design.. the HORSE SHOES.. nah for me this is the worst of all bands for 2009 so far.

Of course you free to dislike any costume you choose, and I hope people do not flame you for your opinion! We are all different people with different tastes.

We might surely see someone rocking this come Carnival Tuesday !

mjsbunny said...

I feel sorry for the designer. Oh dear!

But like saucy said, each band have their worst costumes. IP have a couple (and what's with all the fancy poses on the site?) and TRIBE have they own. I just not feeling the bra on this one though. Maybe if they made it a regular bra...

Ms. Behaving said...

The color is great...the horseshoes [however] are NOT!

trinidoll1 said...

God don't like ugly atal!!!!! I wouldn't say its the worst costume ever, because I've seen worse...it is on the top of my list...I still wish this band luck even though they were "responsible" for leaking IP calendar pics!

Curlylocz said...

I think this falls in line with IP's Love costume. They took the theme too literally. If they removed most of the horseshoes and maybe kept the small ones on the belt, it wouldn't be a bad costume. The theme just too literal.

Carnival Jumbie said...

lol@ elsa and her 'discovery' , why did you think it was the same costume in two different bands???
Oh lawd I Laugh for the week with this post here. I hadda watch myself yes,ppl accusing ME of being Saucy .

Ms. Sexy said...

Curlylocz, leave my costume out of this. I love my IP costume, so much that I am making my own backpack. Everyone has different taste. its either you love or hate a costume. I am in love with love- FL while most people hates it. just like the luck, someone will love it. Thankfully you can see the designers vision with this one.

Curlylocz said...

LOL. I wasn't picking on the costume, not this time anyway. I was just making a comparison. But, I'm sure you'll get plenty love on the road in your costume, backpack and all.

Tiff said...

Yah, it really is quite HORRIBLE. I really can't understand the design aspect of it. It barely represents lucky, and is rather juvenile in its interpretation. The colour is nice, but that's it. The horseshoe really does nothing for the costume, it doesn't shape it, add to it, flow with it. Nothing. Terrible Terrible.

In fact to me, most of Elements costumes are just AWFUL and look like a CXC Art SBA project. Not a seasoned costume designer creation.

Anyone knows who is the designer?

bubblenut said...

Not the best costume I have seen but NOTHING could be worse than Mirage. Mirage looks like someone threw up on the poor model's boob.

Mas said...

This poor model I heard is one of the SECTION LEADERS for this section. She promoting hell hard too... Poor ting!!!

Trini Reds said...

Hey I think you guys are being a bit to harsh on this costume ... its gorgeous colour and I think it will look good on those people who chose to wear it for carnival ... it also sounds like people are being a bit unfair towards Elements too ... I had a real good time at their launch and I have also been to one of thier after work limes that have also been pretty decent ...

Trini Reds said...

Oh yeah and Mas what's wrong with promoting the band you playing in or on the comittee for or whatever? I sure if u was in Tribe or IP or Harts you would have been promoting hard as well. Personal attacks are pretty immature.

shandygirl78 said...

wow...Isn't this the same band with the hideous red costume with all the bowas? And the other costume that has flames on one side and all kinds of other drama going on the other side of the same costume?
Well at least they are being consistent. They will definitely be remembered for something in the 09 season. Every one can't be the best. If I were them I would send out a statement saying they were aiming to have all the worst costumes for 09 on purpose as a sociological experiment or something along those lines.
Oh, BTW the red one with the bowas is still slightly worse than this....just slightly.

Mas-ah said...

I agree to some extent with trini reds.

its one thing critiquing the costume, but we do not need to personalise the critique into engaging the activities of the model in her attempts to promote it.

let's leave the model out of it, she must be ripped up as it is looking at our attacks on this piece of art here.

doh get me wrong eh, pong de scotume to pieces if you like but give the model and the PEOPLE a little resoect nah.

oh gorms man be nice because we know the costume isn't!

I still say that blue mess from IP worse than this, but ok.

Mas-ah said...

I must apologise for my mispelling, my mind goes a lot faster than my fingers could ever go.

apologies!

chinup said...

to be fair, I happen to know that this model is not only a section a leader, but also had a hand in desinging this interesting costume. So although the attacks should be kept PG in respect for the fact that you do not know her personally, ahmmm she could be held accountable for some of this uproar and outrage if u so desire. And where is the Spice man, all these Spice representatives come out the cracks to defend comess but when a potential masquerader is in need of questions to be answered not a spicy boyd in sight!!! I want my costume to get through before the homeless Elements seek refuge.
riiiight!

jv said...

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyysssssssssssss nah nah nah... but all yuh aint see that de model real cross that she had to portay these feathers and the horseshoe that is covering certain body parts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



this HAS GOT to be hideous

joe said...

Mas-ah I jus don't see it, I went back several times to IP's website to compare Heavenly Sky to madam Luck and still find this one is off its rockers but my stance remain Mirage is THE WORSE costume for the season.

Jumbie said...

no horseshoes for me.

isn't the designer Douglas John?

Ayanna said...

as majority said...D COLOR is nice...nice blend...black n purple..dats really kewl...
buh as for d design....I DOH THINK SOOO.....

JAH said...

I think it is just so petty for people from certain bands to get their people to blog bout other bands and dissing their costumes, it seems very obvious that a certain band is gettin nervous about a little competition and creating unnecceasary drama, and some people from certain bands should get their facts straight before posting information on other bands.

JAH said...

and from wat i hear and see elements seems to be doin very well, their after work limes on fridays seem to have quite the crowd!!

Saucy aka "The Sauce" said...

wow I wonder WHICH band is getting nervous?? Couldn't be any of the SOLD OUT bands right? LOL.

If only all those people at the after work limes actually registered for a costume!!!

The FACT is someone affiliated with the band that shall not be named leaked Island People's calender. The FACT is that people who were working with the band that shall be not be named are playing with TRIBE, LOL. I can even name names and tell you which section but you should know that right Jah ;)

Carnival Jumbie said...

Jah want me to dead here today yes. I would LOVEEEEE if Tribe would sponsor my blog then I would not have to talk about anybody but those who paying me. And if that was really the case then IP and Harts should have get blow up too and Tribe would have come out with ZERO criticisms. We all know that all the bands including Tribe get pong so how does your point make sense?
I am quite sure IP and Tribe are shaking in their shoes right now with all their sold out costumes.
Jah I guarantee you that 'the band that shall not be named' will have a bigger lime every Friday on the sidewalk right up until Carnival as long as drinks flowing. But a look inside the camp at the registration center will be the deciding factor on if they do wellor not.The point is to get ppl to pay their money not drink yuh into a hole.

AND WTF like I get clone, it have more jumbies in here boy?

Mas-ah said...

here nah enough bout this foolishness, anybody seen trevor wallace presentation? sauce you have any shots girl?

pinky said...

I never thought that Carnival had so much "BACCHANAL" Im a first time player and I cannot believe all this back and fourth. For all those that sold out then Great for those that are coming out for the first time Good luck and all the best...
