Who do you play Mas with? – Gen X of course.
What preparations do you take for Miami Carnival day? Deciding on which GenX costume suits me taking into consideration the design, the colors, the feathers, how skimpy it is; and if I would feel comfortable in it and making sure the costume fits right. Choosing my makeup, jewelry, accessories and shoes to match the costume. Having all my personal necessities to take with me; the nice thing is I can leave it in my locker with GenX and have access to it all day in the parade. Of course, part of the preparation is going hard in the gym to make sure my body is Carnival ready. Stamina! Can’t forget to attend the Soca fetes leading up to Carnival to get me pumping.
Why GenX? Their costumes are amazing, the Music truck is the bomb, their organization and service both at the Mas Camp at distribution and on the road Carnival day is the best. Don’t even talk about the DJ’s and the vibes on the road, it’s amazing. Everyone is so nice – the staff, the security, the masqueraders, it just all good and lots of fun.
