And people here in Trinidad are getting ready for The Greatest Show on Earth!!!! People running ’round de Savannah at all hours, panmen fine tuning their Panorama pieces and there is an all-inclusive fete every Saturday and Sunday. Once of the most popular aspects of Trini Carnival is the Parade of Bands featuring ‘pretty mas’ i.e. masqueraders, mostly women, in beautiful, skimpy costumes. This is yuh time to get on!!!!! Mas camps spend all year designing and creating productions centred around a theme. There are many bands of various sizes, but three of the most popular large-sized bands are Tribe, Spice and Island People.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be showing makeup looks and ideas, inspired by the 2010 presentations.
The first look comes from Tribe, probably the most popular mas band in the country. For real, the costumes are gorgeous and so vibrant!!!!! This will be real eye candy on the streets of Port-of-Spain!! Tribe’s 2010 presentation is entitled ‘The Secret of Silk’ which is basically paying homage to all the regions in the world that have produced this fine material for centuries. One of the sections that caught my eye was Tyrian Purple (I wonder why!!!LOL!!)
This is one of my favourites!!!!
