IF YOU ARE “kraving” a quality Crop Over experience, look to spend thousands of dollars.

But the reason for that, says Avery Hackett, bandleader of Krave The Band, all boils down to quality, craftsmanship and unique designs. It is also about the entire experience.

That is why their costumes are being sold for US$2 200 for frontlines; midlines can start at US$770 in some instances and backlines can cost US$525 and more. And while many people are raising eyebrows at the prices, most of the sections have been sold out.

To register, revellers have to pay a 50 per cent deposit on costumes, and one of the two queen pieces, which cost US$2 500 each, has already been snatched up. (NS)
