It's a wrap - Toronto Carnival 2016 done


I was very pleased to see so many men playing mas and looking outstanding wearing a full costume. Was there an increase in male masqueraders for Carnival 2016? Seems like it, which bands should consider a big success. 

 
 
 



 Going through our combined pictures, I’ve noticed a particular footwear theme this carnival. Ladies are back to sneakers, and a lot of plain white. Not many decorated shoes or boots. Could it be because masqueraders didn’t want to spend any more on shoes after the cost of their costume?

 
 




 
 



Trini-in-Toronto sure spent a lot of time in Lac Rose! Hmmm, I wonder why? 😉
Looking lovely ladies! 










 


 



When it comes to on point headpieces, this Pyrrhula Finch visor/beak takes the win. 









 
 

 
 
 

Super cute feline trio. 
 
 
 

Loved Nefertiti on the road. The way the halters and waistbands were decorated with that fantastic beading, and those headpieces:  Double Thumbs Up emoticon (Yes emoticons)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My favourite CNz costume. I mean, that necklace though! 😍

 
   



Get it gyrl!
