Yuma – Imagine…

Nothin’ but a teaser!

This morning the tiniest little costume image was circulating, I tried to see it on bbm to no avail. This afternoon this was video was released, so maybe now you have more to imagine? If you pause at 15 seconds and stare you can get a pretty good view of a second costume.

Butterfiles, Beasts and Bacchanal – Tribe Carnival 2013

Let me start this by saying this is my favorite Tribe presentation to date. Ole time something being my second favorite. The reason is simple, all together on the stage, it looks like MAS! It is not out of the box, over the top creative, but it is colorful, pretty and to the point of the theme. Yes it has been done before, and yes this is much younger, much sexier, it’s 2012 for goodness sake, nothing is how it “used to be”.

Below I have included the descriptions and photos from Tribe as well as a photo of the actual butterfly that the costume is to represent. Most of the costumes do an excellent job of portraying their namesakes. During my impromptu butterfly research I also discovered that the Issoria is actualy the Issoria Lathonia, which is known as the Queen of Spain butterflies. Interestingly I searched high and low for a “ray of light’ butterfly only to find that the closest thing to it is the butterfly ray/moth fish that looks very much like it’s costume counterpart. Papillon is the french word for butterfly, as well as the memorable 1982 presentation by Peter Minshall. I’ve included a picture of his presenation as the image embodies what I grew up thinking mas should look like and is why I’ve fallen for the stage presentation of Tribes 2013 launch.
