What you'll do
You will visit my design studio where (in your presence) I will create your Carnival costume. Drinking coffee, listening to brazilian music and watching videos about Street Carnival, you'll feel this vibe of never-ending party and I will teach you several techniques for you to create your own accessories. Then we'll go out together to the "bloco de rua" - Street Carnival procession with orchestra, stiltswalkers and dancers walking by the streets of the historical center of Rio de Janeiro.
I am an artist of Brazilian Street Carnival, designer and creator of costumes and carnival accessories. During one of my trips I fell in love with the culture of Street Carnival and moved to Rio de Janeiro to live this life full of joy and glitter. I started with making my own costumes and going out showing my art, then I learned to walk on stilts and entered several groups of Street Carnival (which are called "blocos") and nowadays I work on creation costumes for main performers, actors and musicians of this cultural movement. I would like to share my passion for this art of Street Carnival which happens during the whole year and never stops.
