June 2018 in Washington, DC … “The Nation’s Capital”!

Things are really heating up in DC, and we’re not just talking about the weather!  Coming on the heels of celebrating the Washington Capitals' Stanley Cup Victory, we have the DC Jazzfest going on, and this weekend’s launch of the DC Carnival Experience!  While DC may not host an annual Caribbean Carnival Parade as done in many other cities, it’s month-long series of entertainment events which includes a wide variety of Caribbean artistes is second to none!  Check out the full schedule of fete events at www.DCCarnival.com and join in the festivities!  It’s about to get #Hot up in here, so remember to get your FlagFans in time to stay #Cool!  Wave your National Colors with Pride!

May 2018 Carnival Season in Full Bloom!

The frenetic energy of the Carnival/Mardi Gras celebrations that took place back in February just before Lent, has now washed up on the shores of North America and Europe with a new flurry of carnivals and music festivals taking place during the month of May.  Before this month is over, cities like Atlanta, Phoenix, Orlando, San Francisco, Berlin, and Ibiza will all see crowds gathered to re-create the carnival costumes and revelry, and partake in the Caribbean Culture of food, music, and dance.  We celebrate having made it through another winter, and give thanks for the opportunity to shed some clothes and bask in the summer warmth …. having fun with good friends and family.  It's about to get #Hot up in here, so make sure to stay #Cool!

Spring 2018 ... New Beginnings ... New Affiliations!

Warm Greetings to the Flag Fantasy Family!

We know many of you are still going through the usual bout of Carnival Tabanca as you reminisce fondly about what transpired just a few weeks ago at T&T Carnival (that's if you can remember), and wonder if you will ever feel such joy and excitement again.  We're here to tell you that "Yes You Can!".  This is the calm before the North American Carnival Circuit begins, and before you know it the weather will warm up and you'll be listening and dancing to the familiar strains of all the popular music you heard at T&T Carnival!

Here at Flag Fantasy, we're also excited about a new development "Across the Pond".  We have forged an alliance with Carnival Slayers, the UK's leading Carnival Page!  We are pleased to be working with them on spreading the joy and celebration of Caribbean Culture throughout the UK and beyond!  

Carnival Slayers was created by a passionate carnival enthusiast. Her ethos was to simply create something that was missing from the UK arena and to make a difference where possible. As a regular masquerader herself she understood the importance of what it meant to play mas, feel free, slay and to feel important by those camera lenses. During years of masquerading she had also seen the prejudice shown towards herself and others whilst masquerading which later prompted her to create a page that captured the many faces of carnival.

Carnival Slayers are a passionate, social media advocate of men and women who are comfortable with who they are. These beautiful beings bring their light to any festivity and they are believers. No matter which carnival band they're in, their sexual orientation, marital status, gender, skin tone, shape or size, carnival is their first love. It's their time to individually express their beauty. 

They know without any acknowledgment from anyone that they slaaaaay!! For that reason alone, all lenses should be on such masterpieces as they shake up every street that their energy pulsates through.

 

Looking forward to great things happening this summer, and also looking forward to seeing you on De Road!

2018 Trinidad & Tobago Carnival!

First of all, to all the Flag Fantasy Family ... belated Best Blessings for 2018!  As someone living in North America, all I can say is that it has been a long thaw from the deep freeze, and I can only hope that we've turned the corner and the worst is over! 

T&T Carnival is just around the corner, and as much as we look forward to it, we come to expect it to be surrounded by "comess and bacchanal".  This year everyone participating in "The Greatest Show on Earth" has been put on notice that "Thiefin' a Wine" (aka unsolicited "Dirty Dancing") is a punishable offense. That being said, many women who attend Carnival Festivities are familiar with the culture and realize that dancing with an unfamiliar partner can be taken in fun and jest as long a the situation remains respectable and comfortable on both sides.  To that end, we at Flag Fantasy encourage you to make it clear and let them know "When You're Hot and Want to be Coy About It!".

 

Have a Safe and Happy Carnival 2018!

2017 Miami Broward One Carnival!

No one would dispute the fact that the past few weeks ... perhaps even months ... have been some of the roughest in terms of the human toll taken by a series of devastating hurricanes, earthquakes and other national disasters.  It has truly left many of us mentally, emotionally, financially and physically battered.  It almost seems inappropriate to even mention the thought of Miami Carnival amidst all the pain and suffering.  However even as we speak, Caribbean people are organizing to "Party with a Purpose" in order to help those in need to rebuild and recover.  If we can help while we heal, then not all is lost! 

Only one thing is going on in Miami Columbus Day Weekend … and that's Miami Broward One Carnival!!!  Miami Carnival is one of the Greatest Shows on Earth!  You are invited to stop by our vendor booth at the amazing Carnival Pop Up Shop at Grand Cafe in Pembroke Pines on Carnival Thursday (10/05/17) Night and cool down with our FlagFans! Carnival accessories for you to RepOnDeRoad! 

Flag Fantasy is delighted to be one of the vendors at this fun Miami Carnival event organized by www.CarnivalPopUpShop.com!  What better way to stay cool than sipping refreshments and waving your national colors with pride!  On top of that, some of the sales proceeds will be donated to hurricane relief efforts.  Do your part to help.  Flags are Hot … Fans are Cool … FlagFans are both!

2017 Carnival Season in Full Swing!

 

2017 Carnival Season in Full Swing! from Flag Fantasy on Vimeo.

 

Calling all Carnival and Bacchanal Lovers!  This is the time of year we are on our highest state of alert. Despite the impending inauguration of the 45th U.S. president, WE JAMMIN' STILL ... WE JAMMIN' STILL!  We look forward to the celebration of Caribbean food, music, color and culture that is Trinidad Carnival and Bacchanal Jamaica!  Trinidad Carnival Monday & Tuesday fall on February  27th & 28th, which makes for a fairly long season of celebration that commenced even prior to Christmas.  Bacchanal Jamaica quickly follows suit and takes place in Kingston, Negril & Montego Bay from April 15th through the 23rd.  

 Lots of great music and fetes are sure to generate heat, so don't mind the cold, ice and snow here in North America. Plan ahead and prepare to stay cool with our FlagFans!  No sophisticated lady leaves home without it 😉 We thank BellisimaDesigns for the exquisite signature costume specifically created for Ms. FlagFantasy to flaunt throughout Carnival 2017!  Make sure to check out more of her fabulous creations.
