NHC 2019 


INDIVIDUAL costume services


"When it comes to Carnival Art, Melissa Simon-Hartman stands out. Born in London with an Afro-Caribbean background (Trinidad and Ghana), her costumes break the barriers of the conventional, never fail to stupefy, and always, amaze..."

| My Notting Hill Carnival |



Legion Mas was founded by Melissa Simon-Hartman, making its debut in 2017 as the first cosplay inspired carnival band to be officially sponsored by London Comic Con. Legion Mas’ band launch was held at the London ExCel as the official after-party of the May London Comic Con event.


In 2017, Legion Mas presented a Shakespearean inspired theme ‘Much Ado About Some Ting’ which introduced professional makeup prosthetics to the carnival world.   


In 2018, Legion Mas presented the controversial all-white theme, ‘Afro Deities’, which was inspired by the Orisa, Obatala.


For Notting Hill Carnival 2019, Legion Mas will be providing a limited number of Individual costumes for the following bands:


Release D’Riddim

All Individual costumes are made-to-measure one-off pieces.
