Viviane Castro is known as the Carnival Queen, gracing the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during Carnival pushing the limits of nudity, much to the delight of everyone. This year, she promises she will wear nothing but Barack Obama body-paint on her nude body. Read about her Obama body art below and see photos and a video.
Viviane Castro is the 26-year-old Brazilian nude model and dancer who is famous for causing a stir in last years samba parades. The parades are at the center of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival celebrations. Getting attention for being ‘too nude’ at Carnival is an accomplishment. The official website is full of exotic naked pictures from past Carnivals. This is a celebration that has few, if any, real regulations on sexuality, sensuality, nudity and/or decadence. Kind of like any other Mardi Gras, if you know what I mean.
Viviane comes from a family of beauties. She has followed her mother’s footsteps. Her mother is Glorea Castro, who was a famous model and dancer in her day. Her mother was the most popular centerfold and pinup girl in Brazil in the 1960s. That was all before she met and married Viviane’s father. Viviane has said she plans the same life path. So far, she is doing her mother proud.
The 5′ 7″ Latina beauty actually got a penalty for breaking the Carnival nudity rule last year but it was not for Obama body paint. She performed as the samba school drum queen wearing nothing more that about 1.6 inch wide pieces of tape in strategic areas on her body. Well, she also had on an enormous feather and jewel headdress and high heels. But the rest was all her with itsy-bitsy pieces of tape. Her measurements are 34-24-36, so you can imagine how much the tape covered. Actually, you don’t have to imagine, her nude pictures are all over the internet.
The penalty doesn’t seem to have been much of a deterrent. She was already a famous model and dancer in Brazil. After Carnival last year, her fame grew beyond the borders of her home country. Now she is ready for Obama body art at Carnival.
This year she will again participate in the Sao Paulo samba school X-9 Paulistana parades. She has another plan that she will unveil during the samba parade on Friday, February 20, 2009. She has teased the public by telling them she will be wearing slightly more than she did last year.
She’ll have Barack Obama body-painting somewhere on her body, clearly not the first Obama body art but the most interesting Carnival body art we can imagine. She coyly declines to reveal where she’ll place Obama on her body, but he’ll be there … somewhere. Grin and wink.
Some have speculated that his face will be between her breasts with his ears covering her n*pples. Most people toss that theory out as the ears would cover much too much of two of Viviane’s ample assets. Still, it seems the most likely location. Having Obama on her derrière would seem just a tad disrespectful. And this is all about respect for the man who occupies the most powerful office on Earth.
“This year I will come back with minimal clothing again but honoring the great political figure Barack Obama,” Castro told the G1 Web site in comments confirmed by Neiva. “Everyone, in a certain way, is looking at him to create a good government and take the world out of the crisis.”
X-9 Paulistana’s parade theme is about the Amazon, but Neiva said the school decided to add the American president to the mix because “Obama will be different in making sure the environment is preserved.”
Aside from Ms. Castro, dancer Daniela Dufi plans to participate in the parade with Obama painted on her body. In fact, Obama is a central feature of the celebration this year. Obama plastic masks are the top selling masks at Carnival this year. The Obama masks are being sold at a rate comparable to rate that cheap multi-colored plastic beads are sold at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Numa Numa Yea Yeah
