  1. SKETCHES AGAIN UGH. I'LL WAIT TO SEE THE ACTUAL COSTUMES AS I HATE GOING BY SKETCHES. MOST TIMES THE ACTUAL DESIGNS ARE A LET DOWN COMPARED TO THE SKETCH & IT'S A SHAME TO EXPECT 1 THING THEN GET ANOTHER.
    LIKE I COMMENTED IN 1 OF THE MOSAIC POSTS I APPLAUD THE LOCAL THEME & HOW BEAUTIFULLY THE SKETCHES PORTRAY WHAT THEY'RE INTENDED TO BUT AGAIN I AWAIT THE ACTUAL DESIGNS. BURNING LOGS, A COAL POT & COCONUT BRANCHES COMING OFF OF SOMEONES HEAD IS A LIL TOO LITERAL FOR ME, SURELY A MORE ABSTRACT WAY OF CONVEYING THE SAME IDEA COULD HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED.
    I ALSO SEE WE HAVE YET ANOTHER BAND DOING A RED, GREEN & YELLOW SECTION. THIS BRINGS IT UP TO 3 I THINK, RED, ROYALITES & NOW MAS ACTION. IRIE!!! LOL
