Getting Ready for Rio

Although Rio Carnival is arguably much larger than Trinidad's while we start preparations as early as July, costumes for their Carnival go on sale from DECEMBER! Earlier this year I reported on the fact that their Carnival 2008 site was already up and running and subscribed for more news. Well, I was informed via email yesterday that costume sales will begin next month:

Dear Saucy Diva

Thank you for already using Rio Carnival Services and for your interest to take part in the main event of the Rio Carnival - the Samba Parade.

Costumes go on sale soon

As requested by you, we will send you an e-mail to advise you when all costumes are available.

We are pleased to inform you that preparations for the 2008 Carnival are on schedule, and that all 2008 Samba Parade costumes will be available for purchase by the beginning of December.

A few of them (the simpler ones) are already available. We are only waiting for the more sophisticated ones to be completed to put them all at your disposal at the same time. This way you will have the whole range of costume styles, schools and parading times to choose from.

All Rio Carnival costumes are produced in S, M, L and XL. Thus we will need only a few vital measurements after your selection, to give you the fitting one.

In the mean-time, you can already see our costume services on our dedicated page:

So, sit back while Rio completes its preparations, and be ready for action in December.

Should you have any queries, our full e-mail and telephone customer service is at your disposal.

Thank you again for your custom. Go with us for the experience of a life-time! We very much appreciate your business.

Isn't it interesting that they size the costumes in S,M,L and XL? I always thought that Rio Carnival was more a spectator sport but for those who might visit one day or just want to compare how their Carnival matches up to Trinidad, keep an eye out for the costumes and check out the Carnival page for some interesting information, like the fact that even though you are participating in the Carnival you still need a ticket to view the parade!
