  4. WOW!!! I don't understand where all this negative feedback is coming from to such a beautiful color palate. The color story here is rich & stunning.

    Admittedly the direction of the theme is not particularly apparent because I'm not really sure what the story line is. Given the nature of this theme it's not as clear cut to gauge & understand the direction that the design team has chosen to take as opposed to an obvious theme such as this past years Birds Of A Feather where the concept didn't require any effort to figure out what to have expected. I guess once the site is up they'll provide a narrative which would give better insight as to the story line behind the portrayal name/theme.

    It's almost like persons are expecting TRIBE to redesign the wheel here with their designs with all this nit picking bout recurring elements. It seems like as far as persons are concerned TRIBE should never ever reuse a braid, fringe, trim, jewel, color combination or design element that has been used before (even if it's their own & works just as well with this design, concept, portrayal or theme as it did with the previous). Geez I guess that's what you get for being at the top of the totem pole, you get heavily scrutinized for a portrayal that would awe & excite persons were it an offering from any other band. Ah the blessing & curse of being TRIBE. Oh well!!! I think the designs work & are beautiful. I was just slightly impressed by the designs based off of the pics on triniscene & was almost swayed by all the unfavorable comments till I viewed the more detailed pics from Saucy's photobucket galleries. My reaction went from slightly impressed to impressed. I grew to like those that I already liked even more & some that didn't wow turned out to be very stunning & all in all the entire portrayal looked way more exciting to me once I got through all 400+ photos from Saucy (lol).

    Don't understand where persons are trying to make comparisons between TRIBE & Spice when in my opinion none can be drawn. Not even having their portrayal theme compromised, design elements copied & stolen (both of which they had to revamp & rework to stay a step ahead of their saboteurs) & having their photos leaked could bring the "competition" close visually in design & color appeal to TRIBE's presentation. I look forward to the offering from TRIBE's one true competitor though, Island People, they've been very hush hush & low keyed in the lead up to their launch & that could only mean 1 of 2 things. We should either be in for a treat or otherwise, I'm expecting it to be the former, at least I'm hoping it is lol.

    But as always TRIBE, you can please some people sometimes but you can't please all the people all the time. I for one am pleased. Can't wait for the NY launch. I'm prime up & ready to step out on that red carpet on Aug 9th lol.

    Peace, love & blessings to one & all ;)

  5. professor, i was expecting ud say something like that.

    and what u and ny mentioned b4 is what i expected most of saucy's bloggers to say: its about the 'ultimate experience.'

    maybe i and the rest of us are shallow. or maybe tribe is using those designs to see who are the loyal masqueraders.....iono. imo from far the costumes will outstand:i absolutely love bright colours however im not a fan of humoungous headpieces or feathery backbacks which is what they have (for a silk theme...or is that suppose to be silk feathers). and as i said before im a fan and jewels and BEEEEEEEEADDDDDDSSS (lol) which they are lacking. and therefore even w/ those big backpacks the costumes look skimpy which i don't really like. i can deal w/ a plain bra but i must have sum swooshing and swashing from my waist down. it may be going out of style but i LOVE it!!! thats y if anything, the lapiz costume wud get a 'B' for me.

    and that's just my opinion on tribe.

  6. LOL YEAH I AGREE THERE'S VERY LITTLE "SWOOSHING & SWASHING" IN COSTUMES RECENTLY, THE BEADING SEEMS TO BE MORE & MORE CONFINED TO JUST THE MID-FRONT SECTION. AGAIN I GUESS IT'S IN RESPONSE FOR SKIMPIER COSTUMES FROM REVELERS.
    MOST ALL THE COSTUMES IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HAVE SOME SORT OF SILK FABRIC INCORPORATED SOMEWHERE ALBEIT OVERSHADOWED BY FEATHERS. I'LL AGREE THAT SILK FABRIC COULD'VE HAVE PLAYED A MORE PROMINENT ROLE & TAKEN CENTER STAGE IN SOME OF THE PIECES BUT THEN I FEAR SOME PERSONS WOULD'VE THEN ACCUSED THEM OF TOO MUCH DRAPING OR BEING TOO COVERED UP OR SOMETHING.
    THE ROAD EXPERIENCE IS A CRITICAL PART OF THE WHOLE CARNIVAL EXPERIENCE THOUGH & IN THAT REGARD TRIBE CAN'T BE TOUCHED BUT I DON'T THINK THAT THEY BY ANY MEANS ARE SITTING ON THE LAURELS & MAKING DELIBERATE ATTEMPTS TO PUT FORTH MEDIOCRE DESIGNS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY'LL PROBABLY SELL OUT REGARDLESS AS SOME PERSONS HAVE BEEN IMPLYING ON SAUCY'S BLOG. I THINK THEY FEEL LIKE THEY'VE PUT EFFORT INTO THEIR PORTRAYAL & THAT IT SHOWS & IN MY OPINION I CONCUR WITH THEM CAUSE I THINK THE COSTUMES ARE HOT. BIRDS OF A FEATHER WAS A MORE WOW PORTRAYAL CAUSE UP UNTIL THEN THERE WERE DESIGN ELEMENTS THAT THEY USED THAT HADN'T REALLY BEEN SEEN USED BEFORE BUT THAT DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM HOW BEAUTIFUL A PORTRAYAL THE SECRET OF SILK IS. I THINK IT'S SILKY SMOOTH LOL :)
