It's a way of life, more than happiness...

Do you see the countdown revellerz??... NEXT weekend is Carib2KGrea8...

So, #1:
Find you band! Get in your section!

Sextant Horizon reminds me of the fabulous Ariel bra & Gypsy skirt colour from last year. I like the waistband/skirt, good job.

Fuzzy yet soft material creating a rugged piratess look, cowrie shells & beads - no wonder Shipwreck was a fast sell out. Very cute.

There's no shortage of heavy Bullions & Baubles on this plain purple bikini, and that's what really makes it a costume (& very pirate-y). Keeping them on and the chain in place on the road will be quite the task.

This doesn't have the wow impact like it did during the launch, but that's simply because the display of Caw Caw can't do it justice like the model did. I also do have to agree with Hubby's point that the feathers cover cleavage. For smaller gyrls, that obviously isn't a concern, but for me...

Misty Dawn

The only male costume on display, Treasure Island - good on you, Ross!

Love the skull waistband, very much in keeping with the theme. I've played in 2 of Ross' blue sections before and was very pleased with the well made waistbands, headpieces and bras.

Cpt. Morgan's Wenches

On the right skin tone, Kacikie will look fine. I like the style of the different waist band. It'll be worn differently on the hips as it's straight across as opposed to a v shaped belt. I originally wasn't feelin the headpiece, too devilish for me... but it may grow on me.

... and, just call me Anne Bonny!
& Trini-in-Toronto, er,
Calico Jack is gonna help me pillage & plunder!!!
After seeing this costume from the launch and website pics, I knew this had to be played in boots - so, I've got my black boots, & I'm good to get on!!!!!!

Naughty corset must go with fishnets, which I'll be wearing, because if there ever was a costume that screamed black fishnets, this is it!

C a h wait to wear this headpiece!

Registering for Carnival Nationz was a Trinidad style experience we're not accustomed to here in TO - long line for hours in the hot sun. That's the name of the game for this ├╝ber popular band. I've been pleased with my friendly communications with section leader Jeannine. You could say I have high expectations for this band, so far so good, & I'll let you know of course how it all goes down.

...find a partner & come let we play...

OOOh...we in the same band again this year! I love your costume choice though, I really love the corset detail on the waist band. And you are too right that costume screams nothing less than sexy boots!

Im in Sextant Horizon, which is quite ironic, because at first I hated the waistband (when you were saying you loved it), but it grew on me. And I am quite excited to pick up my costume on Wednes.

See you on the road!!!!!!!
