Go Big or Stay Home?

One thing I absolutely love about this blog is that I have gotten to meet so many diverse, interesting and special people who are all as crazy for Carnival as I am; some of those being prettidolli, creator of the definition of a frontline H.O. and the commandments that comes with it (she is also responsible for the rules of a solo superstar) as well as franny whose motto is “GO BIG OR STAY HOME“. Prettidolli I can say has singlehandedly caused a marked increase in demand for frontline costumes ( I swear everrrrybody is playing frontline for 2009!) and though she has been M.I.A. for a while I am hoping that the costumes on Saturday will lure her out of the woodworks with their rumoured fabulouslity (did I mention one masquerader who has seen ALL TRIBE costumes went into hyper ventilation mode?). As for our Individual Diva, franny, I am only waiting to hear which band she is going to grace with her absolute diva-ness as an Individual masquerader for 2009.

Anyway, I am amused and possibly flattered that the mantra that these two ladies have preached from since the birth of this blog has been embraced by the likes of the “Kadooment Divas” and “Sweet 7“. Kadooment Divas are seeking to take boots, tights, makeup, lashes..the entire Carnival Diva ensemble to the ladies who play mas for Crop Over. While Sweet 7 took franny’s motto of GO BIG OR STAY HOME and held an event where she sold makeup, lashes, pouches and body jewels to masqueraders for St Lucia Carnival.

Now I have been to both Crop Over and St Lucia Carnival and cannot recall seeing masqueraders bothering to keep on costumes for the day, far less wearing boots, sporting a bling cup and a pouch to match their costume!! The times are a changing I tell you; not only are they importing our (Trinidad’s) costumes but our frontline H.O.ness as well!!! The H.O.itis is spreading. Check out pics of St Lucia Carnival 2008 here.

Kadooment Divas are back again holding their open house, actually it was this flyer they sent me which inspired today’s post:
