The Carnival Rumour Mill!

I have been reliably informed that the breakaway band from Island People Mas will definitely be looking to venture into Carnival 2011. The persons involved in this new band have severed their affiliations with the formerly mentioned Island People and are currently looking for the hottest designers out there as they did not hold a "designer" position in Island People.Names like "Sandra", "Crystal" and "Ruana" are being whispered about as potential designers for said new band. I am liking the idea of using the young, forward thinking designers and this person certainly has the cash to fund a new band... but we all know money and costumes are only part of what makes a new band successful. Hopefully they learn from predecessors mistakes as I am quite interested to see how this new band fares and whose crowd they will pull.

In other Carnival news outside of Trinidad and Tobago, for those who were wondering looks like TRIBE Toronto is still in the works. Sources say they are scouting for designers and designs;however , the standard is pretty high. Looks like TRIBE Toronto wants to give you Trinidad quality costumes! You can check out the website as well.

And finally, one band for New York's Labor Day will be getting a touch from the dynamic duo (so much for taking the year off!) as I hear they will be doing the sexy designs for Ramajay Mas! Looking out for that one as well.

OMG! I am so affected by this post. My NY band and my T&T band. The NY band for the better, now I dont know what in the heck to expect from IP for the 2011 SMH (just when I had it all figured out)

hmmmm i must say i loved ruana design for 2010.

Taal was fabulous and only because of this blog i knew who designed my costume.

I have a fear that all these separations will affect us the masqueraders in term of quality costumes, congestion on the road, band size (i prefer a band between 3000 - 4000) and the services provided.

Yes finally some quality for Labor Day. Ramajay had their issues last year, which I let them know most vocally but if the costumes are blow your mind exquiste they will get my money again. Gym time will not be in vain!!!!!
Oh and that is also another issue we only hv 5 hrs this yr for the parade I wonder how that is going to workout???

If that Ramajay rumor is true then great. Finally we get to see some REAL costumes on Easterm Parkway. And for real, that new time limit imposed on all NYC parades will be a bitch. I think I staying home this Labor Day.

As for IP, I patiently await those designs now with the supposed design team changes.
