I first started shooting Tokyo Decadance back in 2006. At that time the event was held at tiny clubs and you could count the number of people. These days, Tokyo Decadance is huge and even tours major cities in Europe.
Co Co Dancer Asami Yauchi (left) has been with Tokyo Decadance since its very beginning. She is truly an original.
They are still fun events to visit, though, and I love shooting there. Especially when the event is combined with Halloween and you get a combination of lolita, goth and gruesome Halloween creations. During the last Tokyo Decadance in Tokyo there were some very scary corpses. And also some sexy ones.
From colorful cute to gruesomely dark, Tokyo Decadance Halloween has it all.
To some, Tokyo Decadance is a way to feel free.
While it allows others to connect with a deeper self.
For most it’s just a chance to have lots of innocent fun. Dress up and dance!
