Carnival band Xaymaca has been getting mixed reactions to its costumes after the prices went public online.
After patrons were promised a full reveal at a glamorous launch last Friday, Xaymaca posted its packages late Monday night – and Twitter isn’t too happy, judging from the comments.
According to some Twitter users, Xaymaca’s costumes are ‘too basic’ to be fishing between US$625 for only a monokini and US$1,200 for a full getup when rival band Xodus has much more competitive prices.
Checks made by BUZZ show that Xodus’ premium section, Envy, has frontline costumes starting at US$710.
On the other hand, a few Twitter users weren’t so bothered by Xaymaca’s costume prices expressing surprise they aren’t that much higher than the other bands.
