Myst Antigua Unveils

Myst's theme for Antigua Carnival 2009 is "Unveil" , the unveiling of costumes (their band launch ) takes place on Sunday April 26. Now I am totally convinced that this band is owned by someone with shares in Island People mas, I mean second year, second time reusing Island People's costumes from Trinidad Carnival. This trend annoyed me last year and annoys me again this year.

I wonder how it works exactly, does Island People order extra costumes in anticipation for Myst? Do they sell the costumes that were not collected from Trinidad Carnival or do their suppliers in China keep materials on hand to produce costumes for Antigua when needed? Do masqueraders in Antigua know that the costumes are from Trinidad Carnival and if so does that affect their decision to play mas in Trinidad at all or do they simply wait for the same costumes (cheaper) and play mas at home in Antigua? I would really love to know how this process works.

Island People should offer their masqueraders with SO many issues a chance to "do over" by offering them a FREE all inclusive experience with Myst for Antigua Carnival once they played in any of the sections that will be recycled in Myst. Now isn't that a cool idea? And which sections do you think will be Unveiled next Sunday? My first guess is the obvious, TOUCH! I am also guessing Midnight Bloom and Chocolate & Caramel.....what are your picks and if you are an Island People masquerader how do you really feel about Myst Antigua?
