More Still To Come!

So, by now the email has landed in every one's inbox and section favourites are already being chosen which has me thinking TRIBE is going to sell out, without question, in a heartbeat when registration begins. I cannot wait for that saga, but another chapter for another day in the Carnival Soap Opera that 2010 is turning out to be.

With all the thoughts, discussions and opinions on the costumes being bandied about at the moment I am still holding out to view what is in store on Saturday. There is nothing like a live band launch to see the costumes in all their three dimensional, mobile glory so we are definitely in for a show on Saturday.

Also, the frontlines for private sections Mystery of Loulan (designed by Solange Shaw Gopaul), Lapis Lazuli (designed by Melissa James) , Zari (designed by the "Cocktail Girls") and Threads of Morocco (designed by Sandra Hordatt) are NOT shown in the booklet. I have been reliably informed that Loulan has two frontline options , graded as hot and hotter and that Ms Hordatt will once again showcase her signature design element in her frontline costume, something to look forward to for all those who crave that brand of sexiness!

All secrets have certainly not be revealed it seems!


Island People Model Search

And they are alive! For a minute there I was wondering why Island People was so quiet...

Island People Mas, is looking for fresh faces to model in their highly creative calendar and launch for Carnival 2010. It Could be you!

Please attend the Model Search on Monday July 27 at the IP Mas camp at 11 stone Street from 5-6pm

Ladies, wear a bikini under your clothes, Guys, wear shorts. You will be photographed in your bikini or shorts. Please do not wear plenty make up and come with your hair out/down (NOT PULLED BACK)

We are looking for all ethnicities and for traditional Indian style Dancers.
Rumour has it their launch of Kuchela will be the weekend of August 15th

Spice Costume Booklet

It was quite a pleasant surprise to get a link to the online version of Spice's Costume Booklet since I was not as lucky to acquire one at the band launch on Sunday. The photos are looking professionally styled and seeing the booklet has solidified which costumes are my personal favourites; my opinions remained unchanged.

Isis is absolutely gorgeous, I would love the frontline headpiece with the regular costume minus the fabric, plus more beads though, if this was my pick in Spice. Thailand still gets my vote but the shoulder pieces were left off the frontline in the booklet, or maybe this was an element added later, so that little detail that made the costume so special for me is not translated effectively, Greece looks quite regal in the photos and Rubies of Mumbai is gorgeous!
