Brazil Carnival Costumes are distinctive clothes that make carnival hotter. The colorful and stylish costumes are really impressive for all the visitors.

However, here comes a bad news saying over 50% of Brazilians think the carnivals recently are visitor-oriented too much so that it is getting more and more commercial.
