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:
