And here is.. THE BLING!

This year my Carnival preparations included pimping out a H.O. cup (which we later termed the “bling cup"). The cup started life as part of the Bmobile Panorama Lime package; subsequently Bmobile would give away thousands of these cups at fetes, goody bags at the airport and to all Island People masqueraders so I am sure many of you are now in possession of this cup, which can be used for pimping out next year if you so desire!


Anyway, Mystique was the first to come up with the brilliant idea to use this cup as the base for blinging out, and her cup was actually the very first one to be decorated. The metal of the cup made it great for apply decorations with a hot glue gun, and the handle has a neat feature which can clip on to a string or in my case my pouch.

For my cup I used about 180 gems, sequins, braid and swans down for the “fluff”. Hey, it was a H.O. cup so I pimped it out good! The decorations stayed on surprisingly well, none fell off or came loose as I had feared, even with cold drinks poured inside of the cup. At the end of the day my fluff did become wet, in hindsight it was not a practical design element though it did add to my bling factor!

My Bling Cup!




I absolutely loved my cup as the TRIBE cup I got in my goody bag did not match my costume in any way and this cup added to the overall Frontline H.O.ness! Thanks to Franny for this wonderful idea, but apart from Mystique, Afro Chic and myself sad to say I did not see any other Bling Cups on the road! When you ladies are frontline H.O.ing it out you cannot do it half way, you have to go all the way. The job of a frontline H.O. entails having your makeup on point, FAB footwear, cute pouch and now add a H.O. cup to you list for 2009!
