Not One Of The Chosen ?

Dear Sauce

It seems as if the mas band Tribe is really an all-inclusive band catering to a select few.

Now don't get me wrong I am a masquerader who has played mas with this band for the past 3 years.

However, I must tell you that I am really ANGRY, when I saw your page this morning and saw the pictures of Mystery of Loulan. You see Sauce,this was my first pick and I fell in love with the costume since I saw it at the launch, subsequently it was said that this costume was an INDIVIDUAL, I even called the camp where the young lady who answered the phone informed me that individual means ONE.

Imagine my surprise to read this good morning that individual is a word Tribe manufactured to mean PREMIUM, I mean since when did Tribe become Oxford scholars who invented new words to suit their needs?

Who were the chosen ones that were privileged enough to get selected for this costume? And why was this information not released to the general public?

Now I am happy to say that I am a frontliner for the section Zari and my costume is gorgeous even though the wire bra will take a little getting used to. But the unfairness of it all seems a bit much, after all this is a carnival band where the priority of the band leaders was supposed to be that you got the section that you wanted and that you are guaranteed two days of fun and revellery in the sun, not a whose who and a selection committee for a lucky few.

Upset Masquerader.

*Items in the costume have been tailor made to certain masqueraders, hence not every "Individual" will have the exact same costume! You will notice some Bras are different, and some Belts are different and some entire Body wear is different for this costume.

P.S. Individual is the term assigned by TRIBE, this costume is really just another Frontline Option called the "Premium".
