Halloween in Japan

Harajuku Fashion Walk “FUNtasy Halloween Night” Party Pictures

Halloween may not yet be as popular in Japan as it is in the West, but more and more people here celebrate the spooky holiday every year. One of the reasons that Japanese people love Halloween is the same reason that people everywhere else do – it’s a great excuse for a party!

This year, the already-super-dressed-up-and-colorful Harajuku Fashion Walk crew threw a big bash called “FUNtasy Halloween Night” at club Milkyway in Shibuya. The event was supported by several popular Harajuku fashion brands, including Super Loves and Hyper Core. The quirky colorful J-rock band Broken Doll headlined the event. Other musical acts included ADIZ / ex-Lancer>>Bee (whose singer is KERA model Ayumi Yamauchi) and Full House. The DJs for the night included ITARU (this guy has the most amazing two-tone hair you’ll ever see on a guy), Emuoka, and Asacho (the super-fun girls in the pumpkin costumes).

Between the bands, models walked the stage in clothes by Super Lovers, Hyper Core and Broken Doll (which is a fashion label as well as a band). Harajuku Fashion Walk participants also had their moment onstage to show off their own personal styles. In addition to the music and fashion, HiMiKo, machico, and KERA model Kurebayashi performed live painting. Kumamiki’s brand Party Baby, as well as mrntpls, Tamamura Nodoka, and Broken Doll set up booths to show off their handmade goods.

Kumamiki and Junnyan were nice enough to invite us to the party, and we brought back lots and lots of pictures to share with you! Happy Halloween everyone, and please click on all of the pictures to see them in super-extra high resolution!

Update: Just added a new video from the party, please check it out!
