It was Halloween again in Tokyo and folks got out and about in all kinds of getups from scary to funny to sexy to cute to just off-the-wall. I hit Roppongi like I usually do during the Halloween time. It's one of the few times I go there. I don't bother going to the clubs because they are generally jam-packed and you can't see anything hardly. The streets is where the action is where you can see all kinds of fun outrageous stuff. It beats standing 1-3 hours in line just to get into a club where it takes you 20 minutes to get a drink.
I did go to club Feria on Halloween night to participate in a Halloween contest (didn't win). I went as a pirate samurai so I was bristling with weapons (plastic and wood) both pirate and samurai. Due to their over-the-top security protocols I had to surrender up the whole lot of them including my kasana - an umbrella with a katana hilt. It was ridiculous and pissed me off royally (which may have cost me 3rd place). I later came to understand that this was due to a gang rub out just 2 months ago when a guy got beat to death in a Roppongi club. Glad to see Roppongi hasn't lost any of its nefarious roots. Anyway, still had a good time and saw a lot of great outfits.
Enjoy the photos!
