Halloween is almost upon us. The time for shameless costume-wearing, pumpkin carving, and the consumption of more candy and whisky than you’d typically allow yourself. In the states, kids will be trick-or-treating, while here in Japan, masses of cosplay-wearing people will flood the streets, drinking, playing music, and going nuts.
Halloween is a little different in Japan. Costumes are much more important, after all, it is the land of manga, cosplay, and anime. In Tokyo the celebration can get quite chaotic; crowds flood the city, the roads close and it’s all a big, fun mess.
So, in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, we want to see how you’re celebrating this year and give your costume the international recognition it deserves.Simply send us a photo wearing your best costume and you’ll have the chance to win free whisky, gift cards, candy and more. As a special bonus, we’ll also be sending the first 500 submissions a free Japanese treat (terms apply).
