If you take a walk through California’s Disneyland in Anaheim, you’ll notice groups of people with tattooed arms, wearing studded patch waistcoats.

Here we are, face to face with a patch of Minnie and a tattoo of Walt Disney’s head! Who are these Disney gangs?

Portuguese photographer Eduardo Leal noticed and documented this trend in a photographic reportage. His series “Chávez Chic” showcases the “fashion” paraphernalia of those in attendance at the funeral of Hugo Chávez: t-shirts, badges, glasses, earrings, hats, etc. In Venezuela, there is even a word to designate these “Chávez fashionistas”, or “Chavistas”. The passionate link between Hugo Chávez and millions of Venezuelans goes as far as to even find its’ way into clothing.

What happens when the world of travesty and the world of childhood meet? When these two worlds cross over, we dive into the world of the AB/DL, “Adult Babies / Diapers Lovers”.
