Shortly, following the release of their costume prices, Spice's website was up and running. We did get some more information from the website about the costumes. For instance, only 5 sections will have a corset option: Dupioni, Haute Couture, Jubilee, Tres Chic, and Walk of Fame. I am so glad that Haute Couture and Jubilee will have a corset since these are my two faves; also, the corsets will set you back TT$500. So the cost of the Jubilee FL for me will be, TT$5795 + TT$500 but Haute Couture is a little cheaper at, TT$5395+TT$500.
We do get some close up shots of the costumes but there's no 360 view like on Yuma's site. I can't see the back of Jubilee and not sure how the waist band looks on the bumsee. But you do get all the angles for Haute Couture. I would also like to see what the decorated corset looks like especially since some masqueraders felt short changed this year with the sparsely decorated corsets.
This year, everyone who registered online had to collect their costume on the same day despite their section which was a disaster. I had paid and registered at the mas camp so I did not have to go through that mess but I would have to use the online option for next year or get someone to pay the downpayment for me in Trinidad.
****Bliss update: I called the Bliss mas camp and since I don't know any committee members, they asked me to send an email requesting registration for the section that I am interested in and they will get back to me....hmmmmm......this is not surprising...the bottom line is that if you don't know anyone on the committee...find another band.....Spice 5...
