Rumour Control

So, apparently there seems to be a claim by several persons that they have seen Spice's costumes for 2010 and they are letting people know it! There is some truth to this as it is a fact that certain vendor/s in New York have shown customers and store patrons items being used for Trinidad Carnival 2010.

While there has been a "vendor leak" in terms of showing of materials used in certain sections of the band (one vendor claimed that someone walked in as he was packing up goods to ship to Trinidad) there is not one person who has seen ANY of Spice's costumes in entirety with the exception of the designers and the band leaders!

No one knows FOR SURE if there will be lots of feathers or a little feathers or exactly how the bits and pieces they were privy to are going to come together on the whole costume. as a matter of fact I know the designers are so upset they are planning to scrap an entire section because of the leak!

Personally I think the vendor leak is extremely unprofessional as they are also showing materials and even costume photos from other bands as well. With all the competition among the mas fraternity it is simply not one would expect from a supplier.

Anyway, the very first look of Spice's costumes will come TOMORROW and for all those who were blown away with just a glimpse of beads and trims in a store, wait until you get a tease of what is to come!

Are you ready to Spice it up?


Mas Appeal in VIBE

Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is featured stylistically in the June/July 2009 Issue of VIBE Magazine, a pictorial feature called "Mas Appeal". Although the magazine has been on news stands for a while you can now view the online version HERE.

I am pretty surprised that during all the jamming on Carnival Tuesday that an actual photo shoot was taking place on the streets! Great photos.
