More of the Kings and Queens Semi-Finals

Our favorites were the beautiful Queens. The costumes and dances of the Kings went more towards the dark side of Trinidadian history. Queen154

We’ll just show you a few photos from the 20 kings and 20 queens we saw. The finals narrowed the field down to 10 of each. King_197

There were a few exceptions to life on the dark side, and we’re pleased to say the eventual winner at the Kings Finals was one of our favorite costumes. We’ll show you his costume taken on the last day of Carnival, the Parade.

We’re happy to say the winning Queen was a young lady carrying and dancing in her own costume portraying the “Joy of Paradise”.
