Queen of Carnival in Trinidad

My friend Abenaa took me to her home of Trinidad to play Carnival this year. She ordered the "Gold" level costume, and ended up with one of the biggest headpieces in the band. The theme was "Empire of the Sun," and here her face and feathers capture the light perfectly!
