2 introduction Welcome to the carnival costumes PowerPoint. We are going to tell you all about the carnival costumes. How they are made and where do they come from (etc.)? We are sure this session is not going to be boring and that you will find it fun and interesting. There will be lots of stuff for you to do Like: quizzes, puzzles, designing costumes and much more for you to do. So I hope you won ’ t get bored and that you will really enjoy it !!!!!!!!!

3 Information on the carnival costumes. As you can imagine carnival is not a one or two day event. It takes a lot of time, effort, planning and organisation to put a Carnival band together, leading to a successful event, which has participation, involvement and enjoyment of all our diverse communities, in the areas where the Carnivals are held. In terms of Costumes it takes many weeks of welding; sewing; gluing; applying feathers, foil paper, glitter and lots of creativity, energy and patience. The first step is to come up with a theme or overall concept for the band and to develop costume illustrations for each section of dancers. Costumes are then sewn, decorated and fitted to each individual dancer. All this creative activity takes place in what are referred to in the Caribbean as “ mas camps ”, where team work and organisation are crucial to creating an award winning production. The larger costumes are usually more difficult to design and build. Huge frames are created by bending wire into shapes and then covering with paper Mache, foam and other materials. Science (Physics) plays an important role, as the costume must be able to move and dance across stages and streets and not fall apart. Many different forms of decorations and materials (natural and man made) are used to transform the costume into a dream of the mind ’ s eye. Created primarily from wire, netting foam and paint these awesome costumes mesmerize and dazzle spectators. Our step by step video of how to design costumes and how to make a head band will be useful to understand the practical steps of constructing costumes for Carnivals.
