Disclaimer: This blog is not intended to influence anyone to play with any one Carnival band over the other. Even though I may be privy to information from many sources this does not influence my views and opinions;the views expressed are solely mine.This is a place to come and get a little carnival info (how ah buy it is how ah selling it), look at some costume pics, "listen" to me talk about mas and occasionally vent or speak my mind.Use with caution!
Hi Saucy,BAJE GIRL SEARCH 2008I frequently visit your blog looking, hoping, wishing for any updates or comments from anyone on Cropover bands.I question why Cropover band organizers seem to be in no big hurry to get their band and costumes in order and get the word out to potential masqueraders. I guess I'm so used to the fever pitched frenzy of Island People and TRIBE that occurs months and months before Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Do you know or can you solicit responses on what really goes on behind the scenes for Cropover Planning?
Is there some element of secrecy that warrants waiting until last minute to publish costumes and begin registration? Does everyone in Barbados know about things us foreigners are not privileged to know about as yet? I'm starting to get the impression that I should find a local contact to ensure I get in a band.Please see this email I got below from Baje International.They're NOW looking for models! At least this gives some glimmer of hope but Cropover is only a few months away. What do you think?
If you believe that you are beautiful, smart, confident and possess a unique yet intriguing personality, then you might have what it takes to become one of our 2008 Baje girls.
In addition to gaining invaluable experience, ladies will receive free costumes, and be featured and promoted in our media campaign via the web, radio, press and TV. The few ladies chosen will become a part of the Baje family and receive free entrance into Baje events for a whole year.
If you are interested and between the ages of 18 and 26 years old, please send a photograph and a brief overview to
