Clearing things UP about Sunny Side Up and UP!

For some reason there is an erroneous circulating talk that the Carnival Sunday Breakfast Fete Sunny Side Up has now  been re branded as UP (Uber Pramie). I must say it is a very clever marketing ploy for a new fete to confuse patrons with a similar name in the location of the previous fete, but rest assured the two fetes are NOT the same.

Well, to clear things up let me break it down for you. Carnival 2012 will see a NEW venue for Sunny Side Up moving from its previous location on Palm Avenue, Diego Martin to St Micheal's Parish Hall, Wendy Fitzwilliam Boulevard, you can get ALL the details about Sunny Side Up via their website:
 http://www.sunnysideuptt.com/#/ssu2012/


UP(Uber Pramie) is in NO way affiliated with Sunny Side Up, it is not a break away party, it is not the SAME party  nor do any of the committee members of Sunny Side Up have any involvement with UP. The only things these two parties have in common is the word "Up" in the name of the fete, that they are both breakfast parties and the price is the same. UP as far as I understand is the brainchild of a resident on Palm Avenue who took over Sunny Side Up's former venue, it is a BRAND NEW fete for Carnival 2012. If you check out their website you will see the promoters behind UP: http://upevents-tt.com/

Saucy's Year End "Best of..."

Best Post Carnival 2011 Fete 
TRIBE - Las Lap 
I think I had more fun at Las Lap than on the road! 

Best Band Launch 
TRIBE 
Best VIP/Media area, best backstage facilities, best time had at a launch for the season for me.

Best Crop Over Event 
Scorch Cruise 

One word - Epic! (so epic I have ZERO pics of the actual event!)

Best Female Costume
Apache - YUMA 
That headpiece is all I have to say! 

Best Male Costume 
Harts- Zelos
Yes it's another Indian Mas by Harts but I am loving the colour combination on this one and this is the only costume where men will wear a large feathered headpiece!

Best costumes by a new band 
K2K Alliance
PHOTO SOURCE: http://www.caribbean-beat.com/
Fashion meets Carnival minus the bikini and beads or loads of fabric.
VERY creative effort by the Norman sisters for their first foray into designing an entire band.

Best Costume Revamp
Island People
Hero designers saved the day for Island People
 and they were not too proud to ask masqueraders what they wanted and give it to them.

Best Band Launch Model 
Sian Mac Intosh 
Sian sold EVERY costume she modeled for the season and no doubt a body inspiration for many women for Carnival
TRIBE - Cyprus Frontline
Bliss - Bali Frontline
YUMA - Angry Birds Frontline
Explosion - Phoenix Frontline

Best Carnival Band Website 
Yuma
Now if only they had close up shots of the costumes, but the videos take win! 

Best Carnival App
Machel Montano 
If you don't have it yet what are you waiting for?

K2K Alliance - Monday Wear Launch

I am guessing that the accessories match each of the 7 sections  of K2K Alliance "The Waters" and that these are examples of variations on how to tie/wear the Monday wear.
