Carnaval Countdown!

In a mere 9 days, Carnaval Brasiliero Austin will be going down. If you aren’t familiar with this event, it’s a ginormous dance party with samba music, performers, and tons of half to nearly naked folks with spectacular costumes. This is my third year attending,  and I anticipate there will be many more.

I’ve been working on costumes for almost two months, and now that we’re down to the wire- of course, I’m not done. I’ll have to be hauling ass to get everything finished on time! This is the sketch I came up with before I ever started costumes, with a tentative theme of black leather and feathers. In the next couple of days I plan on getting outside to take better pictures of all of the elements I’ve finished so far.
