META Drops Get Ups For Crop Over
One Bajan Carnival band has got the look when it comes to celebrating the annual Crop Over celebration later this summer.
The META Band debuted its costumes for Crop Over in Barbados this summer. The looks include a Dead President-esque costume with black feathers, a matching fishnet top and a black beret. For the men, a feathered headdress with matching Bermuda shorts and a dream catcher like necklace fit the bill.
The carnival group’s theme is the rising of the phoenix in human form, and their costumes were created to reflect that vision, conceptualized by the band’s leader, Pretty Boy Records CEO Trevor Pretty.
The band will be in full costume as they “jump up” through the streets of Barbados’ capital city, Bridgetown, during the Carnival’s “Grand Kadooment Parade” Aug. 7.
Crop Over is a days-long annual Bajan that features parades, parties, dinners and other fetes and runs the first week of August.
