Overall the costumes were okay but the venue was entirely too small. Word of advice: Please apply foundation over pasties to match the models skin. The pasties became an eye sore because it distracted viewers from seeing the detail in the bra. Also sometimes less is more, some of the makeup on the models were too much. If your head piece is large and detailed, simple makeup is required. Chocolate City have come a long way from being a t-shirt band. They still have a ways to go, but they are making steps in the right direction. Only one section needs a full revamp.

And so it begins

This weekend marks the beginning of band launch season for NY Labor Day Parade. The first band to launch will be Chocolate City on Saturday and Sesame flyers and Karma Mas Band on Sunday. NY bands and section leaders need to promote their launches a lot more. The only three band that everyone keeps hearing about is Ramajay, Sesame Flyers, and Freaks NY. Please start flooding everyone’s page with launch info and details about your band. Show people that there’s a lot of options out there that caters to all different types of people, different size and shaped people, and people from different nationalities.
