Way too many regurgitations in this presentation. Where are the backlines?? And all the male costumes look like rushed after thoughts. I thought I'd be gung-ho when I saw this, but I'm not that impressed. Pretty costumes, yet most are just generic and remind me too much of old costumes, viz Amazon, Parisan Gold to name a few. Side note: Sandra's individual is AMAZING!!!!!!! She never disappoints.

Pretty Pretty costumes but nothing revolutionary. Nothing that grabbed me. Lots of things I have seen last year from Tribe (especially the wirebras). Of course Solange thinking outside the box ! I love her costume the best and also Sandra. I can't wait to see how fast everything sells out though.

Gabby costume is ok. I expected something nicer. The costume they did for the last Miss TT was better. On her Facebook she said that was a version.. So maybe they have something better up their sleeves.

Meh, woefully uninspiring. Excepting the white, really like.

sooooooooo unimpressed:( this is the most un-innovative presentation we've seen from tribe yet. as almost everyone said above - a lot of repeated design elements. there's nothing NEW! even that red costume with the fringe is boring as hell. not even one costume with no feathers?? and so many monochromatic costumes! *yawn* i was really hoping to be wowed the way i was last year - when several costumes took my breath away. instead...i just feel like i watched a review of band launches from the major bands over the past 3 years. not a single backline was shown - which i'll bet means they'll be even more boring than ever. although i'm not impressed with the innovation, at least a few of the costumes are pretty. you can almost guarantee the backlines will have only a 10th of the jewels and feathers - and while we might be bored with the frontlines, at least the bling/detailing is something worth paying for! since when does 8 jewels and a cheap tiara on a backline warrant US$650??!! i'll bet we can count on far less than one hand the number of backlines that come with an actual headpiece. and then they'll expect us to pay extra for collars and armbands and whatnot. *steeuuuuups!!* will this push me to yuma?? we'll see...

in my opinion, bliss had a higher percentage of the best tribe/bliss costumes in 2011. but my fave was still in tribe, and ultimately the section i played in. i'll be soooo sad if my fave costume is in bliss this year cause the band is too small for my liking. this definitely leaves the door wide open for yuma...

Wow, just when I thought "Secret of Silk" was the lamest mas TRIBE did, this mess right here come and trump that. Costumes are pretty (yay for Ms Hordatt) but let's not front, 70% of the females not playing FL and individual. So where are the backlines? Who does a launch with no BLs? That launch had me all sorts of confused. Seriously half-baked.

Regardless, Tribers and the wannabes will fight to get in this anyway, sooo........ carry on.

Well once again TRIBE was consistent, consistently disappoints the masses. The best costumes, Cyprus and Ibizia while the others were just recycled creations from past and even present in this presentation. The male costumes FAILED as usual.
The best thing in this presentation were the flight attendants.(who say monday wear lol)
