Hi! Ah, Halloween. It definitely had a different feeling than back home. I decided to explore town after class to see what the festivities were like.
At about 6:30, the group met up in Shimokitazawa for the party. Here, we showed off all of our sweet costumes.
Yuki, the Joker, was by far the best.
Grant got to come along! Representing with Captain America. Er, Amerika. And then there was Tom the crab. lolol. His costume may have been my favorite.
There's a huge space when I posted this in between this text and the next pictures and I'm too lazy to try to fix it. =]
I just re-realized the fantastic photobomb that Evan did in the picture on the left. lolol.
I didn't really take any pictures in the actual bar. It was very small and had about 30-40 students from Seijo there. It was all-you-can-drink, so I drank the FiSh outta a couple cups of water.
I'll steal some photos off of Facebook where I look halfway decent. lawlolz.
There's just so much greatness about this picture. Aroma sneaking in the background, Grant's expression, and Takahiro wearing my bee wings.
Tom and Grant, who is finally wearing his mask the right way:
I'd say about half the party was socializing and the other half was taking pictures with each other. Evan and I were the only ones thinking "but what about the dancing?!" and started a little dance party in the corner.
Another different custom was that everyone changed into regular clothes and out of their costumes before going back home instead of just wearing it on the train. IDGI! haha.
I went around town the next day, expecting to see Halloween candy and merch on sale to get rid of, but it was all gone. It was like Halloween never even happened. There were even Christmas decorations and candy already out, which I guess is pretty much the norm everywhere.
BUT where is my discount candy that I wasn't going to buy but wanted to see?! Zo disappoint.
Oh, and by the way:
Yesterday, I went to Disney Sea with Yuuki and his hometown friend, Taeko. I think that will need a post of its own, though. Another time soon, hopefully! Today, Evan and I have to give a speech about UWM at the Seijo festival. Oh gosh. Yeah, I'm going to go practice now.
I miss you all and hope everything back home is going awesome. Oh, and that you played Animal Crossing on Halloween. I really missed that this year. @___@ All my virtual animal friends.
