Japan's Biggest Halloween Party Part 1 of 3

Oct 27 2013: Rabbits, ghosts, zombies, Disney and anime characters, creatures beyond imagination. By the thousands they visit the Japanese city of Kawasaki every October. To celebrate Japan’s biggest Halloween Party…

Isabelle: The little kids wearing the SGT. Frog Costumes were cuuute. ;u;
Kjeld Duits: @Bushae: Yes, this was a lot of fun. It is awesome to see so many dressed up people all in the same place. Too bad that they didn’t close the streets to other traffic for the whole day like they do on Ginza on Sundays. That would really make the day special.
Bushae: O my gosh, I don’t know where to begin describing how amazing this all is! OuO All the costumes are so perfectly done and artistic, it must’ve been like a dream to go. I love the girls with the severed legs and all the frilly masked victorian costumes and the funny ones like the guy in the chicken suit :)

Props to Kjeld for being a factual guru. :)
