    Background: RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

    The annual Rio del Janeiro carnival -- a programme of dancing, drinking and exotic costumes -- is now under way. The costumes, called fantasias, are among the most exciting spectacles. After parading through the streets of the Brazilian capital, and taking part in Samba competitions, the competitors for the best costumes parade before an enthusiastic audience and a panel of judges. The costumes cost a small fortune -- even though some of them are, to say the least -- on the small side. Prizes are awarded to both men and women for originality of costume. Most of them incorporate vast amounts of ostrich feathers and sequins. The fantasias are the result of months of painstaking work on the part of the competitors and prizes are highly valued.
