English term or phrase: wings and float members
In terms of a formal definition of parade costumes at the samba schools, they are figurative outfits worn by wings and float members, and aid as adornments to the theme construction and development. Wondered and created by costume designers and carnival producers, they are at first elaborated in drawings, the so called “costume design”. The materials used in the costumes are specified in this costume design as well.

učesnici na krilima i u pokretnim scenografijama (alegorijama)
Explanation:
Svaka škola sambe nastupa u paradi sa 3000-5000 članova. Oni su podeljeni na one koje hodaju (ala - wing), i na one koji su u pokretnim scenografijama (alegorijama), zapravo vozilima koja predstavljaju temu koju je škola odabrala.

Možete umesto krilo da kažete i ala, to je karnevalski termin.

Below, an example of a Float at Brazilian Carnaval. These allegorical cars help the carnaval producer tell the plot-story within the parade and are a contest evaluation criterion. Some floats are extremely rich and they carry people, statues, and other luxurious sculptures.

‘Alas’ – Ground Level Entertainment

For the samba parade each school is divided into sections called ‘alas’ or wings, with each wing consisting of 100 members or more wearing the same costume.

  -> Hvala Zorice. I vaše su dobre. Ona prva nam je i ista čak.

agree  Mira Stepanovic: Možda eventualno umesto "krila" odabrati neku drugu reč (sections) jer bez dodatnog objašnjenja može da izgleda kao da učesnici imaju krila. Ili možda U krilima (obzirom da su to grupe učesnika)?

  -> Da, možda je bolje U krilima, to asocira da postoje neka krila, a ne da učesnici imaju krila:-) Hvala Miro.

Wing
They are the building blocks of a school's parade - the school is split into several of them. A group of 20-100 people wearing the same costume and having the same purpose. The costume will illustrate a particular aspect of the school's theme. Every wing has a president who is responsible for the costumes (production and sales) and coordination of all the wing´s members' parade.

Every school's parade is highly organized and designed. They line up in a unique way to present their pageant. The schools are divided into a number of sections and each section has a number of wings of about 100 people wearing the same costume. Sometimes even 2 wings (approx. 200 people) have the same costume. You will find more details about the role and name of some special sections of the Parade on the other side of this page.
