Band Launch Season- My picks!

Hey Beauties and Boos,

We're in the middle of 'Band Launch Season' and I love it! This Saturday I went to Fantasy Carnival's 2014 Band Launch presentation and I must admit I wasn't blown away until I saw the costumes up close.

Opuhala is definitely my first pick. I always wanted to play mas in a red or pink costume so it is no surprise that this is one of my favourites.

Pearls of Tangaloa came in a close second to Opuhala. This costume was absolutely STUNNING on stage. I can image how beautiful these pearls and gems would glitter on the road. I don't know- I'm writing this and having a very difficult time deciding which is truly my favourite!

Tribe's presentation was last week Saturday. As per ususal Tribe/Bliss delivered some beautiful costumes.

I had a hard time deciding which costume was my favourite- I've picked Secrets of Silk. Though it's a red costume, the blue gems remind me of Xi Ling Shi (my favourite costume to date).

Take Me To came in second. I love the back piece! The designer did a good job recreating the 2012 theme.

Harts was one of the first bands to have their 2014 presentation. Harts delivers some stunning frontline and individual costumes. Popoca was definitely my favourite. It's no surprise that this section is already sold out!

Who will I play with this year? I honestly have no idea. Each band (so far) has delivered some gorgeous costumes so this is going to be difficult!

The Nazar Boncuk charm

...or the ‘evil eye charm.’

This charm has been in existence for thousands of years but recently, I’ve noticed that it’s made quite the reappearance. I think the Kardashians caused this style to skyrocket the way it did. I first sighted Brooklyn Decker with this charm and later on Kim K wearing a Rachel Roy  rendition.

Tradition states that the eye stares back at the world to ward off the evil spirits and keep you safe from harm. It is worn to keep away jealousy and maliciousness and can be worn or placed on your favourite possessions.

Danielle Boodoo-Fortune

Who is she? Awesome. That’s pretty much all you need to know.

Seriously though, she is a very talented Trinidadian artist. She is actually the beauty responsible for official banner/cover artwork. On June 29th she will be hosting her first solo exhibition- The Criatura, at the Art Society of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Criatura is both woman and untame creature. She feels, somehow, that there is something between her and the forest. She half-remembers things that she cannot quite name.

Danielle’s work is very elemental and uniquely made. Each of her treasures are handmade and wherever possible made from recycled and found materials.

I am very excited to attend the opening night and I hope to see you there on Saturday at 6.00pm.
