There's nothing quite as much fun as a parade. Especially when there is so much beauty involved!

I love how you view the world!

One thing about Japan, I love all their street carnivals with all performers dressed up :)

Looks like I went to Japan at the wrong time. No Samba Girls for me, but I did see a little of the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Lori said...

Oh my...nice pics. Love the costumes. Happy WW:)

Those are some beautiful outfits! However I think I would fear losing my pants if I were them. :)

As EastCoastLife says, very pretty and sexy. We at CatSynth don't usually associate samba with Japan, but will certainly remember your photos.

Colorful is right - those are quite some costumes! I hope it was warm there that day.

I wish I could wear a costume like those out in public but I think my ultra conservative husband would freak!!!

CK you have outdone yourself with this one.

And as soon as I can get my eyeballs back in my head I'm going to look at them again!

Excellent photos, as always. Don't let the Brazilians see these shots. They will be jealous.
