This afternoon I finally paid a visit to the Island People mas camp to have a look at the costumes for their 2010 presentation Kutchela.
As stated before by many who visited, the service at the mas camp is pretty decent. Before you even walk into the gate, the security is there and there are lots of staff dressed in IP Kuchela jerseys.
I saw the elusive Dane Ignoringandneveransweringyourletters Lewis at the entrance and made my way inside. (I had the boys with me and wasn't feeling confrontational).
The placed is decked out just bordering on tacky and all that jazz, but overall while I think the theme has been interpreted nicely, nothing blows me away.
If I were to play with IP, I would play in Bindi FL with the backpack despite the fact that it reminds me of Kaotic's Beau Jolais of 2009, same colour, same feathers.
The other section that I would play in is the Chutney Baav (wings option only) and Morgandani (wings option only) and I would still probably make changes to those costumes.
Sonia Mack STILL has no costume in the mascamp, and it doesn't look like the diva will have any costumes there, as this greeted me when I went there this afternoon:
Let's hope that the same service continues from registration to costume collection to on the road. Best of luck to the IP masqueraders!
