First Look At Brazilian Fiesta

Hi Saucy, Dimples here. 

After a much anticipated Carnival 2010, today I was able to collect my costumes from Harts in Brazillian Fiesta/Latin Fire. I got to the mas camp at about 5:30pm, and the entire collection process took about 10 minutes. When I got to the mas camp, there were no lines and only one person was leaving as they just colleted their costume.

There were three windows, one for each section that is scheduled to collect. When I got to the window assigned for Brazillian Fiesta, I was greeted by three men who checked my ID, got my costume and head piece and also complete my carnival order. The gentleman who took my payment was extremely helpful, as he made out my receipt for me (because I was paying for my costume and someone elses'), and advised me that Harts gave everyone bigger bra sizes when they realized the bras were small fitting. He also took out everything in the box and showed me that i had everything.

I must say I am very satified with my costume and the money I spent. My only complaint is that the head piece is too small and since it is a short elastic band, there is no room for adjustment.

There was also a flyer in the box stating the following rules:
1. you are not allowed personal security unless approved by Harts prior to Carnival
2. on carnival monday you must wear enough of your costume so that you are identified by security
3. men must wear their shorts printed with Harts 2010 logo on both days
4. wristands are to be worn Tuesday ONLY along with full costume

The band leaves from Gray St. and Tragarete Rd St. Clair on Monday 10:30am and on Tuesday at 6:30am.

I have include pictures of my costume and goody bag for you

Demand YOUR Road March!

"JMC is encouraging all masqueraders to stand up if the dj's do not play the song you want to hear to cross the 'stage'. Demand YOUR road march, not theirs"
That was my friend's status on Facebook over the weekend and I love it so much it became the topic of discussion for the new episode of Bacchanal Factory . I feel pretty strongly about the DJs that hype you up to cross the stage with the song that the crowd WANTS but then plays the song THEY want when it comes time to cross the judging point.

So, who is going to stage a standoff on the road Carnival Monday and Tuesday until we get the song we want to parade in front of the judges with and which song are you voting for to take Road March 2010?
