In the field of engineering where males are the dominant gender, females find it hard to form their own groups or sororities. It is typical that in an engineering class of 30 to 40 students, there is only a maximum of 5 females, 8 at most. An even smaller ratio applies in the engineering workplace.
But it’s not always that these engineering females get along with each other, which leaves each of them open for male friendships.
That’s what Rebeca Abrantes exactly did. She now studies computer engineering – Rebeca is one-fourth of the women in her class of 60 students – in the first technological university and one of the top ten engineering schools in Brazil, the Universidade Federal de Itajubá.
When it was time for her to get married, she got her engineering bros to join her in a bridal photoshoot. Because she had no engineering sisters in the first place.
Her now-husband Renato Sinohara approved, even joining the rather unusual but fun-filled bridal photoshoot.
“I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. I was looking into some “making of” pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, drinking champagne and all, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that,” she said in an interview with Bored Panda.
To say that the outcome is adorable and witty is an understatement. Rebeca got her engineering bros to drink cheap booze, play dress-up, and fake-shave their legs while wearing pink robes the entire time.
“The photoshoot was super fun. Everyone was taking shots of cheap booze and sometimes we were laughing so much that we had to take some time to recover and go on with the photos,” she said.
Here are the photos below as posted in Rebeca’s personal Facebook account:

Rebeca said, “I am very happy with the photos. Sometimes I look at [them] and find myself laughing like crazy. But I never imagined this would become so viral.”
