Lingerie or mas?

A band launch in November? Hah, no, I just had to come out of hiatus to post about the 2010 Victoria Secret's Fashion Show. Every year the wings get BIGGER & bolder. But the designers have been adding so much more to some of the bras & panties, that they really look like carnival costumes! Didn't the fashion show look like a band launch to you?

Tell me this doesn't look like mas!?!

Finally someone put these two things together: skulls & roses!!

This is a favourite because of the peacock feathers in the wings, which I just love.

Massive peacock wings, golden wiry "backpack," tail feathers =Individual!!

Make room!!

So angelic huh? I like the headpiece, er, the jeweled crown

I'd add jewels to the boy shorts and a rhinestone headband

Of course, bubble wings!

Reminds me of the Spartacus slaves. Love it!

Serious hardware on those wings

Pompoms, cute. Butterfly pride


This one for the boots. STOMP!!!

I know what's missing from making these mas are waistbands (& headpieces). But that's easily fixed. It's a long, cold fall & winter with nothing to hold us over until the launches start here in May. So I enjoy this annual extravaganza, and some of these creations go on my Caribana costume wish list. Hey, we can always hope!
I think Victoria Secret's should come out with a band...

What I wouldn't do to get a hold of those peacock wings, omg!

And I think the Toronto Revellers made an announcement as to their theme for next year, I hear they are doing, "The Wizard of Oz". Kinda excited to see what they make out of it.

I agree with Anon..I love the themes this year... CNZ's theme is "Mystical Creatures"..oh my oh my..I cant wait to see what they look like. I am definately feeling you on the Fairy...if they do it well..it will sell off :)

Their band launch is May 7,2011..so lets see what they do with the theme..It has to be all about presentation..When i was thinking of it I thought of things like fairies..leprachans..dragons...unicorns.. there is just so much they can do with this. Lets just hope they do it GREAT.. I am very excited.
