http://therovingroninreport.blogspot.com/2012/10/tokyo-decadance-halloween-2012-cosplay.html

Went to Tokyo Decadance’s recent Halloween bash. Here are the pics and video (including last year’s event). I went as a Pirate Samurai as a send-up to the Wako who were actual Japanese pirates many of them samurai 500 years ago.

Japanese Cosplay Halloween – Tokyo Decadance Halloween 2011

 

Here is some footage from last year’s Tokyo Decadance Halloween event that I never got around to editing at the time because I had just got my camera and didn’t know how to use it. I was late anyway to the event and ran out of battery but still some interesting shots.

This year’s event is at Christon Cafe in Shinjuku on October 20th starting at 11.

Zombie Japanese Maids and Resident Evil S.T.A.R.S. Girls

Went to a small event in Shibuya promoting Zombies and Resident Evil/Biohazard Cafe. There were several zombie maids – 2 being zombies I had met before – but fortunately the cute Resident Evil/Biohazard girls of S.T.A.R.S. were there to keep them in line.

Tokyo Decadance Pirate Christmas

Tokyo Decadance Pirate Christmas
Have Yourself a Piratey Little Christmas, Maties!

Christmas has rolled around once more and Tokyo Decadance that eclectic melting pot of subcultures celebrates the holiday season with Santa and Pirates. One gives while the other takes. Considering the latter have probably been on the naughty list for so long that it’s only natural that Pirates should want a little for themselves.

Rolly Teranishi sings Rocky Horror songs in Japanese

For your surreal entertainment – two songs from the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show sung in Japanese with a bit of English by ROLLY Teranishi.

Rolly Teranishi was a member of the Japanese rock band Scanch before going solo.

Here ROLLY performs “Science Fiction/Double Feature” and “I’m Going Home.” He’s a big fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and has played Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Japanese stage versions.

This was at the 2009 Tokyo Decadance Halloween party.

Another fun-filled Tokyo Decadance event with sexy sirens, wickedly wild witches, ghoulish goblins, devious devils, rollicking robots, newhalf ninja, vicious violinists, plundering pirates, alliterating *ssholes, and god knows what else for Halloween.

Also in attendance was Rolly Teranishi who performed at last year’s Halloween event. Here he sang two songs from the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show in Japanese with a bit of English.

Hoichi the Earless(?) and Pretty Devil enjoy Tokyo Decadance

One of my favorite costumes at the event was the girl dressed up as Hoichi the Earless even though she still had her ears. This is from an old ghost story where a blind biwa player unknowingly played for the ghosts of a defeated samurai clan. In order to save him from eventual destruction, Buddhist priests covered his body in sacred texts but they forget to cover his ears. When a ghost came to fetch Hoichi, the sacred writing prevented him from seeing the biwa player save for his two ears which he ripped from Hoichi’s head.
