Imitation, Copying or Inspiration?

I was told that the readers of Trinidad Carnival Diary are "digging way too deep for s**t" when looking for comparisons between Bachanal Mas' costumes  and costumes from TRIBE and Island People.

You be the judge of the HOTLY debated topic. Are these costumes imitation, copying or a result of inspiration?

Just For Fun Sneak Peek

Since most of the band/section leaders/designers from popular Trinidad Carnival bands are busy shopping for supplies and materials in New York at this very moment, it's time to turn the Carnival attention to the region. I recently had the good fortune to preview  in person costumes for Just For Fun's St Lucia Carnival 2010 presentation  entitled "Great Loves of the Past".

The costumes are looking pretty nice, however I cannot show them in their entirety as the band has not officially launched as yet, however just for you, here is a teaser!
