Lobisomem by Felipenn Lobisomem by Felipenn
Yes, a Werewolf!
Lobisomem is how the word is translated into portuguese...
He is a very important creature for the brazilian folklore, all over the country, countless cities have their own stories about this creature, mostly at the countrysides. This is why I put on him the clothes of a "caipira", what can almost be translated as "hillbilly".
Usually, it is told that he cames at night to steal and eat unbaptized children (Brazil is a very catholic country), other versions tell that when a son beats his mother, he will turn into a werewolf!
Hope you enjoy it!

Hilarious detail of the Lobisomen mythology: any woman they bites is turned into a nymphomaniac. Most werewolves eat people, the lobisomen just makes you really horny.Moral of the story: if you have to be attacked by a monster, make it the lobisomen.

Voce conhece um bom lugar onde eu posso encontrar alguns historias do lobisomem (seria preferido em ingles porque Portuguese nao e minha primeira lingua. Agradeco muito.

Oh, and great picture, love the redneck vibe.

If I remember my Portuguese correctly: lobo=wolf and homem=man. I would also love to know what the werewolf if called in Spanish. Of course, I could actually look it up on my own... [heads off]

You're right! Lobo and Homem!
Where did you learn portuguese?
Well... I really dont know where to find werewolf stories... All the ones I know I've heard personally or in the TV!
There's always countryfolk, specially the older ones, telling some sort of stories about it!
If anyway I can help you I will!

I lived in Sao Paulo for two years (a year-and-a-half in the captial itself, serving on a religious mission [nine weeks of intensive language training and then they unleash the gringos on the unsuspecting Brazilian populace for the next twenty-two months]), so you kinda' have to learn how to speak the lingua, otherwise you tend to go hungry ;P. Speaking it I'm fine. There's even a group of us at my work that speak Portuguese with each other, just to stay in practice. Reading, and worse, writing it..., that's a whole different ballgame. I still don't have the finer nuances of the language down. Que pena, ne?

hehehe Realmente, uma pena! Tem que continuar praticando sempre...
My english gets rusty sometimes too, after long periods without using it.
I've heard that portuguese is a very hard language to learn, its a little bit odd when I travel and see people from other countries amazed by the sonority of the brazillian portuguese!

Well, I was quite surprised at how Portuguese sounded. Yeah, it was much harder to learn than say French, but I think it has a certain sound and charm about it. It doesn't seem as vulgar as Spanish seems to me, yet there's an easy going familiarity about Brazilian Portuguese (and especially the more southerly accents, as opposed to the Carioca and Nordestino accents that, to me at least, resemble Sean Connery ;P) that just makes me feel right at home. I'm actually really glad and proud to know this particular language.
