As Tyra Banks always says… “Do you wanna be ON TOP?!!” .. Word has it that a certain designer’s ULTRA FRONTLINE sections which has COMPLETELY sold out, has YET to be completely paid for services rendered!!
It seems that this on-going issue with designers not being paid what is owed to them has also “crossed over” to the North American Carnivals… Who is ending up in ah BLACK HOLE this year because of non-payment of bills?! News to the Sauce is that this is a section that DRIPS OPULENCE on the road and was everything I advertised in an earlier post. The ULTRA FRONTLINE can rival many of Trinidad costumes….
I also heard that a certain section leader rumored to be the “laughing stock” will BE the one who LAUGHS LAST when the section is TRULY revealed in all of its “VIXEN-esque” beauty come May 30th and sales will expect to soar all the way to VENUS! All this talk, yuh know de Sauce does only report it how ah does get it eh! Doh make me look like BOZO de Clown!! Hmmn! the North American CARIBANA Carnival is making me think I have to make a cameo NEXT YEAR cause this year I’m already Cropover bound!
On another front, designing DARYL’s UNICORN section in Carnival Nationz continues to make strides with a “first” in Caribana history! The only section to be OVERSOLD topping previously held numbers within the camp and not only that “get this” the costume “resale” drama has spilled onto facebook, where notable “designers” are also trying to get into the “action” by re-purchasing costumes online via facebook threads! I guess “you really would get HORNED if you are not in this section!”
Back to the issue at hand though, EXACTLY how much do DESIGNERS charge for their services? I couldn’t imagine it being THAT MUCH, when the end result is a spectacular section that propels your band into Carnival history and makes YOU the source of “costume envy”?
