Blue Smoke Mas: Atlanta Carnival 2016
My compadre Lingy aka Lingywashere and I were asked to help design costumes for a new Atlanta Carnival band called Blue Smoke Mas.  They are a small band that want to offer a more affordable carnival experience to those that want to play mas, but don’t want to spend $300 - $400+. 

Oh how I would love to be able to design some $800+ costumes, but I had a good time designing these.  They were pretty simple designs, like I said we were aiming to keep costs low.  If you follow my carnival tutorials then you've seen how I make the collars and leg pieces... and just like the leg piece, the belt design came from an unlikely place...

Here are a few stolen moments of us in the lab, enjoying some chunes and Jesus Juice. What can I say, even when I'm working I like to have a GOOD TIME!

If you dig the costumes & price and want to join us on the road for Atlanta Carnival you can Register Here: Blue Smoke Mas

PS:  We are still parading in Decatur with the rest of the awesome Decatur bands, you can find more information about the road march route on
