Bachannal Factory Live From Pier 1

Cute Coloured Sneakers!

You know I am all about the boots for Carnival, particularly since the majority of masqueraders who choose the other option, sneakers, barely put the effort in finding ones that at least match their costume. Sneakers would be really cool too if everyone chose to customize them to match the costume, like Afro Chic does, but not all masqueraders go the extra mile when it comes to accessorising; everyone is different I suppose!

These sneakers from Old Navy come in five super bright colours that are perfect for Carnival, personally I would add some gemstones and maybe change out the laces but I am loving the colours, especially for the Island People section  Morgandani where I think sneakers would work well with this costume:

The other colours the sneakers come in, great for Monday as well if you do not want to do boots both days:

Kirk Thomas Makeup Artistry - Carnival Collection

Another makeup artist who is, unfortunately, fully booked for Carnival 2010 is Kirk Thomas, however I am showcasing a few of the looks from his creative work entitled Carnival Collection 2010. Kirk has intimated that these are inspirational looks, and even with the gem work the makeup underneath must still be stunning and beautiful:

Kirk is my  personal makeup artist of choice for Carnival 2010, I loved his work last year and promptly booked for me and my friends on Ash Wednesday. If you are interested in contacting Kirk Thomas Makeup Artisrty, check out his Facebook Group or  email

After more than 30 years of absence from the Carnival Calendar the Jaycees Carnival Queen Show is set to take place on 10 February 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Ballroom. After a revitalization of the organisation in 2008, members of the chamber decided to resurrect the show after hearing much about its history in Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival. At the Media Launch held at Mango Media, Dere Street, former Miss Trinidad and Tobago Faye Alibocus gave her endorsement for the show and did the official sashing of the participants. Seven delegates will compete for the title and the winner will be the representative of Trinidad and Tobago at an International Pageant.

The Show will be hosted on a much smaller scale, with emphasis on standard and quality. The biggest and probably most important change though, is the decision to align the show with a cause. The Committee has decided to use the show as a catalyst to increase awareness of persons living with disabilities and have thus partnered with the National Centre for Persons living with Disabilities. The theme of the show is “Beauty with Compassion……Making a difference in the Lives of the differently abled.

For those who may not know, the Carnival Queen Show was a part of Carnival history in Trinidad and Tobago having been a staple of Dimanche Gras night in the 1950s until the Government appointed Carnival Development Committee handed over control of the pageant to the Jaycees in 1959. The show was then moved to the Oval on Carnival Saturday night until its return to the Queens Park Savannah in 1963 until it ended in 1971.

The committee has received support from the National Carnival Commission, National Lotteries Control Board and other various entities but encourages Corporate Trinidad and Tobago to contribute to the cause of the show.
