As we reported previously, American Apparel threw a big Halloween party this year at their Shibuya store. After the Shibuya event ended, the crowd (at least, those over 20 years old) headed for Roppongi for the afterparty. The all-night event – a co-production between Mercedes Benz & American apparel – was officially called “Trypt for Halloween Boo Night supported by American Apparel”.

At around 10:00 p.m., the afterparty kicked off at the Mercedes-Benz Connection in Roppongi. There was a costume contest at 1:00 a.m. where one awesomely costumed winner walked away with a 50,000 yen (USD$639) American Apparel gift card. The second place costume took home a 30,000 yen (USD$378) gift card and third place a 15,000 yen (USD$189) gift card.

The Halloween partying didn’t stop until the first trains started running (at around 4:30 in the morning). For those who couldn’t attend, we brought back lots of snaps for you to enjoy. Be sure to click on the pics to see them in high resolution!


A big thanks to American Apparel and Mercedes – as well as all of the Tokyo Halloween Party attendees. If you’d like to know more about the party, you check out the official Facebook page.
