Haiti's voodoo enthusiasts are not the rich, as we all know. This often means that detractors of this religious practice often question the rationality of spending rituals. Often exorbitant in relation to their standard of living. Among the obligations of expensive rituals, the dress of rituals. Almost every year the voodooists make the effort to have new dresses made in the colors and in anticipation of the new feasts of gods that are coming. It is a practice that is part of a sort of tradition of Haitian sapology. A game, not to get rid of an opponent, but rather to gain the favor of gods. Creativity is at the rendezvous, women and men alike every year revisit fashion, European and African colonial influences. Creations that will feed others next year.
