Green Honeycreeper Bra

Since the O ring bra was only recommended for A cups this is what the regular bra option for Green Honey Creeper now looks like:

Extensive testing has shown that the "ring bra" option for Green Honeycreeper will not provide you with sufficient support and would require frequent adjustment. Therefore, the bra has been redesigned to ensure that your comfort on the road is not compromised.


Size A to C





Size D and over

Vintage Tuesdays




As a person born in the era before bikini mas had taken it's stronghold on Trinidad Carnival I can still remember, as a child, my mother playing mas in clothed costumed regalia and even the scandal caused when women paraded in short pants! My most distinct memory, however the one defining presentation forever burned into my psyche has to be Peter Minshall's River.

The first glimpse of Minshall's brilliance that year,1983,when my mother took me to the preliminary King and Queen competitions; every one was in awe at the mechanical looking legs of the Man Crab costume, not knowing quite what to make of it as it was unlike any other King on stage that night. On Carnival Monday and Tuesday the River came to town! Peter Minshall designed a 100ft length of white fabric, held aloft by masqueraders, which from afar looked like a moving river of white fabric! Tuesday a riot of colour erupted as the white was doused with paint, I remember looking at this transformation of mas from one symbolism to the next and from my viewing vantage point of a youngster it was the most incredible thing I had ever seen!

Though I have grown to love playing bikini mas and get excited over the beads and feathers, no other presentation has ever had that effect on me as an adult as that was pure theater on the streets as today we simply indulge in a rolling street party. Critics constantly bemoan the loss of our traditional mas and many, many masqueraders today do not even know the history of Trinidad's Carnival or even the traditional characters that are almost extinct from the landscape of mas.

So it was with an extreme pleasure when I discovered a treasure trove of newspaper articles and first person accounts about Trinidad Carnival from the 1900s to the 1970s researched and compiled by the National Cultural Council. On loan to me, I have decided to feature these articles every Tuesday from now until Carnival 2009 with excerpts from the various years.



The feature today is 1900 to 1903
