Well a little birdie told us that the Bliss costumes were going to get a little facelift. Well I expected a slight tweak or two. I certainly was not expecting a complete rework of Ice Warriors and Solaris. So here is Solaris and Ice Warriors take two:
Solaris is almost unrecognizable. Most of the costume has been completely scrapped with the exception of the tubular gold chain. Most obvious is the colour change which went from gold/orange/ yellow to blue/ lime green. The design on the bra and the waistband are completely chaged.The back of the waistband is a piece of cloth that hangs to one side. The frontline version has a backpack instead of the large armpieces before. I think much better use of the gold chain compared to the previous version and the colour are fantastic . Down the the bracelet accesories......I am truly shocked, 110% improvement!
I had to do a million double takes on this one. The colour combination is now teal/grey/purple. No trace of the former shade of blue. The icicle headpiece and the oversized back pack are gone. We now have giant fetahered shoulder pads and a cute headpiece. Please note the funky pink walls in bliss mascamp sometimes causes some distortion in the colouring and I was so excited that I forgot to take an overall shot with my digital camera instead of my blackberry.The transformation is amazing. Similar style gems are being used but a lot more colour brought into the costume.
I really need to give the designers a round of applause! Well done! This is what i was hoping to see in Bliss to begin with! I can see some people jumping off the TRIBE bandwagon very shortly. For close up pics of both new designs click here.
But wait! Its not over yet !! Cyclon is a "dead man walking" and will be removed from the lineup as well. As we speak a NEW costume is being photographed for addition to the band. Stay tuned!
