J-Halloween 2015: Ladies' Bargain Cosplay

J-Halloween 2015: Ladies' Bargain Cosplay

J-Halloween 2015 is Coming!

It’s that time of the year, and while some stores are already putting out Christmas supplies and decorations (remember, we're in the heart of Japan, not Wisconsin), for now the word(s) on the street is still HALLOWEEN, in TOKYO! We too, are quite excited. 

Now, new readers can be forgiven for not knowing that Halloween has become a pretty big deal over here. As has gone on in the U.S. and other parts of the Western/Western-influenced world, Japan has embraced Halloween as an event that’s just as much about adults partying, cosplaying, drinking, and drag-queening as it ever was about kids collecting candy. This is a very good thing. 

Our friends over at Tokyo Otaku Mode - the very same who've brought us the Hikaru SkirtJapanese Girls Underwater in Knee-High Mecha-SocksJ-Darth VaderJ-Iron Man, and much more - are continually assembling very decent cosplay gear that requires much less of an...investment, both in time in and monetary resources. Perfect for October 31.

Ladies' Bargain Cosplay: 

Nothing below exceeds $65.00, which isn't too bad for a full outfit. We don’t care if these were meant for it or not, we're officially recommending them for J-Halloween 2015. See more images and a whole lotta cosplay links below.
