XPAT'S Section Launch - Portraits of Autumn

Randy Dowden's Photos

XPAT'S (Saldenah) section Portraits of Autumn launch was last night at Meadowvale Community Centre. They've brought out another shiny, bright costume with a big & bold front line backpack. Cool golden cape.

So what do you think?

I love the costumes! I prefer the backline over the frontline though

Okay, I don't usually do this but I'm going to give constructive criticism. The cape is throwing the costume off, it should be bronze or metallic red. The headpiece is also off the red coque feathers used in the collar should incorporated into the headpiece. I think by adding more burgundy and red the section would look less like Eustace own. The design of the costume is really nice, it just needs tweeking a little.

Please don't kill me for saying this.

Hey Carnival Divaz, Thank you for your constructive comments. Unfortunately there is absolutely no red in either the Fronline or Backline costumes. Perhaps it showed that way in the photography due to the lighting. Our colours are Orange, Bronze and Burnt Orange with hints of gold...You are right, we are tweaking the headpiece as we speak...

Anytime Winston, please send this blog pictures of the updated costume, as we are eager to see it. Great Job.
