Memories, Outfits and Pictures From My First CARNAVAL

Hello everyone, how are you feeling today? If you are new here you should probably know that this blog has currently only one writter: me!

And as this is not a good enough presentation I should shared with you guys a little bit more about me. If you wondering how I look like, here are some samples: during the day I am a Unicorn, but at night I prefer to be a kitten

No, nothing like that I am both of these girls in the pictures above and yes I am dress up as a kitten and a unicorn , but for very good reasons: this week was Carnaval in Brasil, and if you don’t know how It looks like, don’t worry, I didn’t know either! This was my first real one and that’s why I need to share some details with you.

Around this time of the year (usually in February, but for some reasons that I have no clue, it was celebrated in March this year) we have a special holiday that happens for about four days straight. Now, just to create a picture in your mind, think of summer (a very, very hot day of summer), no school or work, streets are closed and full of people following this giant truck, that carries a group of people who will sing and dance and entertained everybody that follows them.

This last the whole day, for four days, and it extends to the weekends before and after too.

It is insane, people drink the whole day, dance, make friends, all dress up as whatever they feel comfortable in, almost like a mix of a festival and halloween!

So as my first carnaval, I was going to wear the ears I got for trick or treating in 2016 with whatever I had in my closet, but once I got inside the first store that very same day to get my friends something to wear, I couldn’t resist to the rainbow skirt, neither to the matching Unicorn tiara right next to it. So I bought it for a total of almost seven dollars, did some make up and went to these crazy streets in search of a very happy day.

Before I get to the point that I actually show you guys what I wanted in this post (which was the great pictures I took of my look) I feel like I have to share with you guys a little bit more of the rest of that day:


This is me and one of my girlfriend’s friend who was never able to call me Miss Mingrone, and named me Mississsipi!


Then we found a group of Dora The Explorar’s, and of course we needed a picture with them …


And this my friends, is what carnaval is all about hahah.

After that I intended to celebrate all the other days, including that same night where we went to a club to dance till my knees fall off.

But of course, I still needed to wear my kitten outfit, it was when I decided to do a tutorial (click here to check this post) and get a photo book about it, check it out:

That was it for today! I am already missing Carnaval, and hope to be able to celebrate a lot more holidays like this around the Globe, but for now that was it. Hope to see you soon, bye bye!
