Pre-Halloween Vibes   Leave a comment

There are some days you feel like going out and you don’t know why. I haven’t even been thinking about Halloween so much lately, but I ran into a friend from high school in Jamaica (in Shibuya of all places) a few Fridays ago and he invited me to an early Halloween party. If you had a costume you got in free. What you see below was my costume; a scarf. Needless to say, they weren’t trying to let me in, but a DJ took a liking to me and put me on a guest list. Birdimusprime in Japan! I hung out with an interesting crew and took some pics of the Party, which was held at the Trump Room. Decent music, crazy costumes and an early preview of the madness to come for Tokyo Halloween 2010. What’s going to happen this year? We’ll see. Check My Jamaican in Japan TV videos for the video I shot last year and read my 2009 Tokyo Halloween article. I think this year is going to be BANANAS.

A pirate scarf isn’t necessarily the ultimate costume to use to try and get into a party for free, but somehow, I winged it. Ladies, meet Captain Black Sparrow, but then again, i’d be number two, there was already a Captain Black Sparrow in attendance : p

Captain Black Sparrow got the most attention, with the Ringling brother’s fellow coming in at a close number two. With nothing but a scarf, I think I just scared people for most of the night.

Once you’ve lived in Japan for a while, the words “going out anywhere” and “convenience store” become synonymous. There isn’t a night you will party without making pit stops and these places, called “conbinis” for drinks. As tipsy as most of these guys already appeared, we made the stop anyway, running into a few clowns… literally.

Inside the party there was a sort of retro circus theme, I guess this explained why a lot of people were dressed like clowns or circus acts. Cool vibe, the place was chock full of people.

Four floors with a roatation of DJs. The top floor was the best, white a white decor and a bloody red theme.

She wasn’t in costume, but like a lot of people during Halloween, this girl was letting it loose on a pole. On a regular table. Not sure what that has to do with Barnum and Bailey’s circus. The Amazing pole dancing lady? : p

 

I look forward to seeing what can happen this Halloween 2010!
