The Rise Of The Male Divo....

DIVO
A male diva. Considerably since o is for men and a is for women. Like chico and chica.
Male models who have good looks and a killer bod have become so divo.
Urban Dictionary
Someone pointed out to me that this year saw an unprecedented number of male Individuals in all bands for Carnival 2010, as well as the male version of the “backline individual”. I am guessing since the regular male costumes just do not cut it for ALL men, yes some want more than just a pair of board shorts, the alternative for men looking for REAL mas is to either go big with an Individual costume or jazz up what they were given with extras such as a collar… or more.

So, we now have males sporting wings to rival a Victoria Secrets model, corsets a la Lady Gaga and looking even more fierce than some female Individuals accessorized down to matching boots, airbrushing and gems! I tell you the men REALLY get into the Div-o role!

Do you think this trend is here to stay and would you support bands offering male masqueraders
1.The Option of a Male Frontline and 2. Costume Extras, including larger headpieces, which they can purchase to their costume in lieu of just the generic costume?
