Halloweekend--Part II

Halloween in Japan just keeps getting better and better. The amount of fabulous costumes (and people in them) seemed like it tripled from our first Halloween here 3 years ago! As someone who thinks that this is the most wonderful time of the year, I'm happy to see Japan moving in the right direction!

There are pretty much two places in town that throw the best Halloween parties, the first being TK6 (the bar and restaurant where Jacob works):

Yup, I recycled the 'ol Gaijin (foreigner) registration card again from two years ago (replica of my Certificate of Alien Registration card that all foreigners in Japan must carry with them at all times!). I've never before recycled a Halloween get-up, but besides being a sweet costume (if I do say so myself), I figured the only place it could get its Halloween propers was in Japan. Plus, I'd be lying if I didn't say that it helped me save money for my upcoming trip to South Korea as well!

Poor Jacob, though, had to work his tail off in the hot kitchen all night. Just so you know, hot kitchens aren't conducive to masks or melty face paints. I suppose going as "Crystal's husband" is scary enough for most folks anyway:

Back to the awesome costumes:

After TK6, we headed to the club A-life for the biggest Halloween dance party in town! There was blood. There was sweat. There were drag queens. Plus, I won 4th place in their costume contest! It's doesn't get any better:

The happiest of Halloweens from the far East, everyone!
