My absolute favourite costume from D'Krewe for 2011 is TEMPO! The colours are just vibrant and BEAUTIFUL, and I like the big headpiece (as compared to, say, the section Drums). I notice most of their sections do not have a frontline...wondering what the reasoning is behind that but liking it anyway because it does make me think of affordability (not that I am overpaying for my frontline, it's actually a little lower than what I budgeted!).
I look at that costume and say now this carnival, this is MAS! Anyone not in a section yet should get in this!
2nd runner-up: Iron & Steel...you get the metallic sense from looking at the costume, and the extra swirls and beading are just a nice touch to me. I love that splash of blue feathers...adds the fun and some softness and helps make it another beautiful costume! That particular shade of blue is hot!
Would love to know who's getting in these two sections (or any of D'Krewe's other sections) for 2011! D'Krewe is on Facebook so check them out and get all their contact information as well as see who you'll be jamming down the road with comes carnival Monday and Tuesday!
