So last February it was Carnival week here in Trinidad and Tobago.
Carnival is usually celebrated in schools as well as in parades on the street.
We also get a public holiday on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.So the Friday before some schools celebrate by having Calypso and Soca performances and having inter house, inter class and/or inter form competitions .This year for Form Two, I was allowed to make the costume for my Form. The character we got was the ' Fancy Indian ' the Traditional Mas character was based on the Indians from North America. Here are the pictures of the final costume which one of my best friends wore in the performance:
This is a picture of the sketch of the costume.
unfortunately I did not have enough time to make the belt
The back with out the cape
This is one of my best friends Chelsea who goes to school with me she portrayed the character for judging;)
I would like to say that there was no way this costume could have gone up on stage with out the help and support of my parents,all of my family and of course all of my amazing class mates who stood up for me.
