On the Street...Carnival Costume, Rio

I love the contrast between the bright colors up front and the fogginess in the background.


Blogger athkor_thelightningbreather said ... (9:50 AM) : 

That's beautiful. The combination of the warm reds, oranges and yellows with the splash of green leaves and feathers at the bottom and top just is dazzling. And there's parrots! Is this just sitting out in a park in Rio? It looks to delicate (though I imagine someone wearing it would be very fierce looking indeed) to just be sitting outside.

The colors of this are stunning. I've seen some fantastic carnaval costumes and this is up there with the best. But it would be better if somebody was wearing it!


Blogger Erin said ... (10:05 AM) : 

who cannot but love the "carmen miranda" look of the costume(s)


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:15 AM) : 

So much color! Love the photo!


Blogger MAJoR said ... (10:15 AM) : 

Is this a Christian Siriano? :-) Cuz its FIERCE!!!


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:29 AM) : 

I love anything that has to do with Carnivale.
This costume is amazing.

put together

For the evening I like it, but I think it's a bit much for the day.

Blogger augusto said ... (11:13 AM) :

Very Mardi Gras but much more fstive.

Are the leaves real? And is that fruit I see?

I guess there is not a whole of fashion to really photograph in Rio, is there?

Samba school costumes are as much of a statement as you can get out there. I hope you are having a good time, though.

I guess when people wear almost nothing, they are left with their bodies only to show their style.

Although Brazilian, I have to say that I am ready for Paris, Milan, New York, Amsterdam fashion sense again.

Your blog is the only scape in my stressful work day. Thanks for making my day so much easier to cope with.

incredible! beautiful ornate costumes.

aaaahhhhhh...this brought to mind wonderful memories of carnaval, samba...and some of the reasons as to why I LOVE this country so much (coming from a mexican-american..); it has the most beautiful music in the world (I think), the greatest-looking people I've ever seen together and out-of-this-world creativity & resilience !! Thanks so much for the pics!! beijos

I mean... I don't see the big deal, I have 2 of these tossed somewhere at the bottom of my closet. When I wear it out and people compliment me, I just giggle and say, "whaaat, this old thing?!"




Anonymous M said ... (12:35 PM) : 

anonymous at 11:48, it's a shame you feel that way. You are clearly missing something. I live in Rio, and I can tell you there is A LOT of substance here, and "statements" everywhere. People express themselves incredibly through art and their personal style, (which I might add, is often quite unique- I'm sure, and hope, that the sart will post some more "real street style", not just people on the street near the Claro Fashion Week events). People offer a lot, even if they are not all the elite fashionistas y of in other cities.

Oh, and outside of the beach setting, people are not walking around half naked, as you imply. As Brazilian, you should know that.


Blogger The Man Who Knew Too Much said ... (1:41 PM) : 

Wow. This costume shows some great complexity. However, what really caught my attention is the background. Stunning skyline and the blurred out makes it even more attractive for a strange reason...


Blogger Bruna, prazer. said ... (2:39 PM) : 

I agree with m. I guess you should open your eyes to our culture. We are more than swim suits ans havaianas. Our style is revigorating, stunning, full of energy and fire. It's fierse! haha And just because we don't wear many clothes as european people it doesn't mean we can't show style.
I bet sart can show you this.

aweesome photos and the costume capts the idea of a happy and vibrating carnaval;

I love the leaves at the bottom.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (3:41 PM) : 

E um abacaxi? Amazing colours, textures and shapes! I cannot imagine using this in February's hot weather in Rio! Gorgeous!


Blogger Barbara said ... (4:01 PM) : 

Somebody actually wears that? Crazy stuff.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 PM) : 

That's beautiful... could you put up some close up/detail shots of it??


Anonymous phyllis said ... (7:08 PM) : 

I'd love see how it's made. Bet it weighs a ton too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 PM) : 

great style

Halloween 2009!


Anonymous Keri said ... (11:47 PM) : 

it's considered very ugly to put red and green together in Chinese culture but this combination looks fantastic!

This is a brazilian costume of carnaval. People wear that in school of samba.


Blogger Nick Couch said ... (5:02 AM) : 

That reminds me, I must get some new Christmas decorations this year.


Anonymous Fernanda said ... (11:15 AM) : 

gotta repeat it:
is this a Christian Siriano? :-) Cuz its FIERCE!!!

this is not the real carnival in Rio - please, I am Brazillian, I know. This is just what is shown, and works for the parade, but not on the streets where people wear shorts, flipflops and spaguetti strings blouses.
