All Quiet On The Carnival Front

Well at least so it seems! Apart from bands releasing themes for Carnival 2013 and a few band launch dates the Carnival gossip has been relatively quiet. The thing is behind the scenes the drama is unfolding but everyone is giving me information OFF THE RECORD which is quite frustrating. So, I am going to give you a five point update of what I have heard so far .



* One band is on the hunt for new designers as their legendary design team is now exclusively doing costumes ONLY for another rival band. This means masqueraders should not only expect to see costumes by a few unknown designers but one veteran designer is stepping up to plate and I heard she has several wow designs in store. Maybe change can be good sometimes.

* The biggest behind the scenes bacchanal is brewing between bands that are "poaching" committee members from each other. People are flip flopping and section leaders are supposedly looking to go over to newer pastures. Expect to see familiar faces in new places for Carnival 2013.

*One sophomore band is expanding, I was informed that we can expect 15 sections next year. Hopefully this time they will actually have room for OPEN registration. 

* I am getting excited for things I have been hearing happening over at TRIBE, and I have to say the thought of going back "home" is a very real prospect. One of my FAVOURITE designers is doing more than one section (hopefully) so I am pretty excited 

*And finally, keep an eye out for bands that won't be making it on the road for Carnival 2013......
