Kawasaki Halloween 2014

Date Published: Last Update:2015/05/18 Entertainment, Pop Culture & OTAKU , ,

October’s about to end in few days and that means Halloween parties are held in different parts of the world. Spooky stories and scary costumes are what Halloween is synonymous to nowadays. Halloween in Japan, though not celebrated for tradition, is loved by many Japanese people. Last October 26, the biggest Halloween event in Kanto Area or possibly all over Japan, the Kawasaki Halloween 2014 was held and thanks to the internet, we will be able to see how the event turned out.

From our first post about Halloween in Japan, we know that Halloween events in Japan are getting bigger and better each year. As the country who gave the world cosplay, it is not surprising how it will be eventually loved by the Japanese people.

Kawasaki Halloween

The Kawasaki Halloween is an annual event held in La Citadella in Kawasaki City. La Citadella is an area designed to look like a little Italy. It is located near the Kawasaki Station. The street is full of Italian restaurants and other Western-themed shops. It is a truly befitting venue for an event coming from the West. This year’s event was graced by more than 2500 participants. Below are some of the photos we gathered from around the web.

The uploader says that he saw one of his childhood traumas, the Alien from the film of the same name, but instead of getting scared, he was charmed by the cuteness.

 

In Japan, anything can be cosplayed. Even food.

Pamphlets, telephone, and even the Instagram logo, yes, inanimate objects can be cosplayed too!

Popular characters from manga and anime are present. Above is Master Roshi from Dragon Ball and a Colossal Titan from the hit anime Shingeki no Kyojin.

Some also cosplayed werewolves and other were-animals.

What do you think of these photos? Are they kawaii or kowai? Share it with us in the comments!
