Like last year, Tokyo’s party scene loves to celebrate Halloween as an opportunity to dress up in weird fashion or naughty costumes and dance the night away. Although this foreign holiday is not yet here, this Saturday was one of many pre-Halloween nightclub events at the Trump Room. Located in Shibuya, it is a small but nicely decorated club with three rooms on three floors.
The party was presented by bunny.×Tokyo cherry×Dead or Alive and called Mysterious Halloween Night – Tarot Fortune Teller, because it featured not only popular DJs from Tokyo and Nagoya, but also a small booth with a girl reading tarot cards for a measly ¥1000. However, I was more interested in the costumes and attires of my fellow partygoers and tried to capture the best of them. Sexy nurse outfits were rather popular this year, as were ballet costumes from the Black Swan movie, the usual Japanese cosplays and Western gothic/horror classics.
