Hypnotic Mas Band makes a Bold statement n their 2019 Bahamas Carnival costume release Saturday, Jan 12 at 1 Cru, Gladstone Rd. The costumes are a bold decorative take on sexy lingerie. These pieces look great in the night, but can they withstand the beating of Carnival bacchanal? Even, moreover, the Bold line does not represent or fit the varying body types of the local market and the growing population of obesity in the Caribbean diaspora. One would ask who does Bold truly represent? Is Hypnotic Mas Band looking for a particular type of masquerader like many boutique bands throughout the Caribbean?
We present to you Bold by Hypnotic Mas Band for the 2019 Bahamas Carnival Season.

The Carnival Critic Review:
Bold’s product launch took off with a burst of energy the rocked the crowd. Regardless of the rainy weather most of the crowd socialized without complaints under covered areas to the mix of old, new and vintage soca. Their first line Boujie got onlookers in place and ready to be wowed. They were as bold rolled out a colorful line of costumes with equally tantalizing titles.
The printed, iridescent, animal print and lace ensembles that served as the base of the pieces gave a great head start to beautiful pieces. However, some pieces seemed incomplete in thought and production beyond the ready-made foundation. The headpieces that adorned some of the models were beautiful though common. Where present the jewelled leg enhancements added a modern upscale vibe. The completed costumes need to be finessed before they are ready for the road.
The cut of the costumes did not offer variety and seemingly did not provide a practical fit nor much bust support. While Bahamians tend to run short the length of the costume’s body may prove to be a challenge for taller or shapely persons. I was disappointed to see no “boy short” cuts just thongs. Carnival should be inclusive to all body types and style preferences.
All in all, the costumes were more lingerie-esque than bacchanal. I would have like to see more creativity and less off the wrack. I have concerns that as is, they may not survive the road.Post Views: 377
