Louis Saldenah's Secerets of the outer limits

We went to the Saldenah's launch tonight, and as always we had a pleasant evening. The costumes looked really good. And there are 15 sections with countless possibilities for costume options. If you can’t find something here you like, then I don’t know what to say.
This year they moved the launch up to a venue on Finch and it was a lot better, they had nice high ceilings so it wasn’t as hot as Embers, and there was a large stage and enough room in the hall for people to spread out. We have some more shots that we will post later (because I am falling asleep now). But I really think you will like what we have up so far.

At the bottom of the post, there is a list of section leaders, section colors and names which we picked up online (ingenious)... someday every band will do this the night they launch… very helpful.
I hope you all like the pics, the mas camp opens on Sunday at 1 pm. Checkout their website for details (There is a link on the right hand side of the blog.)

Good Job Louis, you are in for another epic season




This costume was called Mother of the Universe, and it was designed specifically to address the needs of more mature masqueraders who are looking for a costume with lots of cloth and coverage.

I went to the launch on Friday night. I thought it was the best band launch so far. Both CNZ and Saldenah have beautiful costumes, but I think in my opinion Saldenah steals the show! Even the male costumes look good and very creative. Their front lines look amazing; their making your $400 worth it. I didn't see much "skimpy" costumes either, which I noticed alot with CNZ. I guess CNZ attract a more "youthful" crowd, not too sure...
Overall, I think I've made my decision and I'm going to be playing with Saldenah this year. =)

I find both presentations rather similar in that both bands have many skimpy, super sexy heavily jeweled costumes. Both have made more massive headpieces and backpacks & collars this year.
Hmmm, do others think more feathers are worth $400?

I think both bands did a great job with their presentation. The costumes are all really beautiful. Mascaraders should be happy that they dont have to stick with just one band this year, they have lots of options. Saldenah has his followers and so does CNZ, so I think they will both get high numbers in terms of registration.

Karabana I think more feathers are worth more money if the costume looks great. Nothing worst than spending $400 dollars or more on a front line just because it has a big back pack of feathers but the costume sucks. Having a back pack or feather collar doesn't always fit a specific costume.

Can't wait for your "Who you paying wit" blog post. I always look forward to that. I am intereted to see who everyone is going with this year.

You're welcome Lisa. I work hard for the money.
Oh wait, no I don't.
;-) lol
As for Caribana shoes.com, their ad says Saldenah costumes, so there's an affiliation, but you can always call them to ask if they'll do other bands...
