K2K Complimentary Monday Wear for Trinidad Carnival 2012

K2K Alliance and Partners has released some more information about their Christmas Gift for masqueraders. Triniyute, Shello and Tess attended the Monday wear launch before Christmas and treated us to some early photos.  However, it is fantastic to see the professional shots of the models in various imaginations of Monday wear using the lovely blue(…)

K2K – I in dat!

I am happy to announce that I will be playing mas with K2K Alliance and Partners for Trinidad Carnival 2012! Since K2K’s exciting launch, I have had many phone and email conversations with mas aficionados and masqueraders about K2K’s costumes.  And a few questions always pop up: Yes the costumes are beautiful but: -can you(…)

The Reveal: K2K Alliance Monday Mas

There is a very old saying that states: if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans. Well, someone at K2K Alliance told God their plans. And the comedy was not lost on Him that their Carnival 2012 presentation is called The Waters. When the TC Crew received our invite to attend the(…)

Trinidad Home Studio has shared a fantastic video from the K2K band launch for Trinidad Carnival 2012. I like to see videos of costumes more that photos because the movement of the costume elements is very important.  It’s especially necessary when considering the larger creations that come with elaborate backpacks and headpieces.  Last thing you(…)

K2K: When Mas and Fashion Collide

K2K: When Mas and Fashion Collide

I first became aware of the existence of K2K Alliance and Partners when I heard that there was yet another new carnival band entering the arena for Trinidad Carnival 2012. By the time they launched in September, I had already decided where I was playing mas.  As a result, my interest in K2K was more(…)

Men don’t have to play mas in glorified board shorts

Men don’t have to play mas in glorified board shorts

A little while ago I happened across a post entitled “Men pay for costumes too!”.  In it Akil laments the fact that male carnival costumes seem to be an after thought.  The ladies costumes are all elaborate and blingy while most male costumes are just glorified board shorts.
