Ikebukuro Halloween Cosplay Festival 2015 Photo Report

DSC_4782

Recently, Halloween's been getting really big in Japan's large cities. In particular, Tokyo has started seeing grand gatherings on the big night in city centers like Ikebukuro and Shibuya.

Part of how the Japanese do Halloween focuses on cosplay, just like in North America, but instead of witches and vampires, the most popular costumes are those of anime characters! Knowing this, we sent a team to photograph the amazing Halloween cosplays at the Cosplay Festival in Ikebukuro. The results are gathered below for you to enjoy!

Like the promiscuous vice-president from Prison School? Or how about the terrifying kakuja from Tokyo Ghoul? Those, and other anime favorites were all present, and are in this gallery for you to check out!

Enjoy!
