RAYS OF LIGHT
I love the colour combination of this costume. In reality it seems that the bikini is more of a pink base but the decorations are a sand colour.I definitely have to see this close up in real before I make up my mind about it. I notice they seem to have used shells as embellishments which is very much in line with the theme. I like the hints of blue throughout the sand coloured areas. Again, its difficult to assess unless you see it up close. I did observe that the waistband looks very similar to a belt that I have in my cupboard. Even with the added beading hanging I think it seems a bit scanty for a waistband but its difficult to see the clear beads on it. The FL has an added collar that seems to work well with the ensemble. I think it should all be ok in real life but I reserve judgement!
I liked this costume a lot when i saw it in the calender but I did not like it as much when I saw it on the night. It still is a very attractive, its very hard to mess up a silver costume (really?). I got the impression that the hanging beads had very little weight to it which may cheapen the look a bit. I hope that is not the case.The floor is a very basic costume overall. The style of the accessories seem to be rather popular in several sections this year. I really like how the back packs are molded to look like wings instead of just flapping behind you. The Fl has a cage bra. I think cage bras are starting to get a bit played out especially when the band has more than one FL with said cage bra. Its still pretty and sexy but I am getting tired of them. The FL is just dripped with diamantes, very flashy. I am not liking the little diamante asymmetric skirt as much as I initially did. It also comes with an embellished bikini bottom. I again will have to get a closer look.
I love the tribal pattern on the costume with the colour combination. Using that model in the calender just sold the costume completely. Its a fairly simple design but very well done. The headpiece is simply fantastic and the bra looks of a very high quality.I would love to get those bangle accessories to go with it as well.I am presuming that the backpack option is the FL. If that is the case, I actually think the floor looks better than the FL. The back pack looks scanty and the head piece is definitely not as fabulous especially if you were to compare it to Pheasant FL (Tribe 2k9). Its not worth the hassle if the floor is so great.
