In this case, it's not just a bad case of FOMO (fear of missing out). If you're not in Brazil, you are missing out: The annual Carnival celebration kicked off on Friday and the party ends tomorrow.

Hundreds of thousands of tourists flocked to Rio and São Paulo this year, as per every year, to take part in the roving street parties (called Carnival blocos). Also like every other year, everything is extravagant: The bigger, the better. The glitzier, the better. And it better be sexy. Or else, why bother?

Here are 10 (11 counting the above) pictures that will only make your Carnival FOMO even worse. WARNING: They are potentially NSFW, because at Carnival, if you got it, you are flaunting it.
