Firstly the launch started late so that meant the live feed was also delayed, no biggie since I almost forgot about the live launch and was able to catch the start of it.... when I finally got streaming video! The link on Wee's website was not working for me and their sponsor BLINK, who advertised that you could view the live launch on their website, had no link at all! I finally got to see the live streaming of the launch on Trini Fetes.
The quality of the video was pretty poor, very grainy and the colours were muted, not to mention the camera man showed some poor angles. However one could still see enough of the costumes to decide if they were interested .. or not. I saw the sections Paradise Plum, Cocoa bean and Chocolate Passion before my attention was diverted elsewhere, such is the caveat of viewing the launch at home!
When I got back to the computer I saw a black section.. and a white section with HUGE wings; I still do not know the names of that section or anything else after the first three to be honest. From what I have seen the costumes look pretty good. I would have liked to have still photographs of the costumes to look at in more detail or even the video of the launch be available for download to look at it again. I guess we have to wait for the website to see better photos of the costumes.
Kudos to Wee for trying something different with the live streaming of the launch, I hope this is a trend that other bands can adopt for the future.
Wee's mas camp is located on the corner of Kathleen Street and Bournes Road.
