Mac Farlane rules in Kings, Queens prelims

Celebrated mas designer Brian Mac Farlane’s creations dominated the National Carnival Kings and Queens preliminary competition on Thursday night at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain. In the King category, Malak Yahweh-The Praying Mantis, portrayed by Gerard Weekes, captivated the modest audience as he crossed the stage with choreographed movements mimicking the creature he was portraying. The black and white costume with a huge mantis head had eyes that seemed to glow in the dark of the Savannah stage. Mac Farlane’s Queen, Dr Charisse Bovell, had a successful night, after her dismal performance last year when her costume collapsed in the finals.

Bovell portrayed Mother of Humanity-The Weeping Madonna, which was impressive with its intricate designs which were being tweaked by Mac Farlane’s assistants up to minutes before she crossed the stage. Bovell placed first with 454 points, 20 points more than her closest competitor Kay Mason who portrayed Amethyst Rising. This year’s show was a somewhat scaled-down affair with 74 participants crossing the stage, compared to more than 100 last year

The costumes this year, although notably smaller, featured the artistic details and construction which have become synonymous with Carnival Kings and Queens. Regal colours and themes were also notable during the show with numerous participants using purple and gold in their costume design.
