YUMA Question and Answer

Here is a compilation of Questions and Answers specifically asked of YUMA designer Richard Dookhdeen from Richard and Anthony Productions on the Trinidad Carnival Diary Facebook Fanpage. If you are not a Fan you are missing out on ALL the action over there, so what are you waiting on, join now: 

Does Apache Frontline come with a bra?
  • Yes the Apache frontline option comes with a Bra, a red based pink sequined bra in the size ordered when you register.
What are the sections that are offering corset options in YUMA?
Heavenly Sword Frontline, at the launch, the tiara the model wore looks different than the one shown in the professional pics. Which one will be offered during distribution?
  • The option shown in the professional pics/website will be the option delivered, often we re-style a costume for ramp, to create a desired visual effect.
Is the monokini for Luxor Frontline adjustable?
  • The monokini is also one of the infinkini options, meaning you con tie it to achieve a custom fit.
Is the Tyris Frontline bottom that salmon color seen at the launch or gold as seen in the professional pics?
  • The bottom for TYRIS is the Coral shown at launch.
Do the Frontline costumes that have wire bras have the option of having a regular decorated bra instead?
  • The Frontline costumes do not offer a full bra option as far as I know , but I am sure if you call the production department , they will be happy address that concern for you.
Can masqueraders order tiaras matching their section to wear on monday at an additional cost to their large head piece?
  • Any additional items for costumes such as tiaras , can only be confirmed through the production department, they will be happy to answer this question for you.
For Apache what is the standard MALE headpiece if you pay nothing extra?
  • The standard male head dress for Apache male is a native american HEADBAND , this can be viewed in our showroom.
Can any thing be done to help spice up the back of Tyris Frontline.The back of the collar seems a bit plain... The front of the costume is so sexy that I don't just want the back looking boring... You get these beautiful colors at the front then the back of the collar is standard?
  • The back of the collar has since been addressed and is no longer "plain" .
Have there been any changes made to the Luxor Backline headpiece or will it remain the same as seen in the photos
  • Luxor Backline has NOT been changed
I heard that there are no other options for Backline costumes such as: monokini, tankini. I have a friend that does not want a 2 piece. Is this correct?
  • There are no special options/ alternatives to Backline costume other than those shown in house, on the website, or at the launch.
Would the Luxor Backline bra remain as a halter? I really hope so. I remember Taurus last year looked like a halter but we got a normal bra.
  • Luxor , Tyris and all the other Bras in YUMA are multiple adjust, style bras,they can be adjusted in several different ways to ensure a custom fit.
The "small wings" for the Final Fantasy Frontline, are they the same size as those from the launch? Or are they a bit smaller?? Would you guys be offering a back photo of that costume with the wings?
  • Final Fantasy Frontline wings are the shorter of the wings shown at launch, the premium frontline are the wings that go all the way to the floor.
Is there a backpack in Spawn Frontline? I didn't see one at the mas camp on the mannequin...
  • Spawn Frontline is one of the back pack optional sections in YUMA , meaning , the backpack is an addition to your costume.
Can you tell me what the size range is in inches for S, M and L bottoms. Thanks in advance.
  • uUually we go by industry measure which is : Small-28-30, Medium- 31-34,large- 35-38 But  I urge you as requested by YUMA to put your Waist and Hip sizes on your registration card .
Can I get a wire bra done for Call of Duty Backline or can I pay and get it done myself?
  • Call of duty does NOT come with a wire bra option for the Backline as far as I know .
I would like to know if the Apache Frontline headpiece is the same as the Backline large headpiece as appears in the professional photos... thanks!
  • There are differences between both versions of the Apache shown , the regular option is a bit shorter than the Frontline option and the Frontline has a bit more embellishments
