We spent a night out on the town in Tokyo’s Shibuya this Halloween weekend to grab some incredible photos of cosplaying revelers.

The Shibuya area, known for its nightlife that skews towards ludicrously drunk 20-somethings, has become increasinly inundated with cosplaying partiers each Halloween season. The festivities usually kick off two weekends or so before Halloween itself, culminating on whichever Saturday is closest to the official holiday with a veritable horde of costumed revelers looking to show off their often elaborate, hand-made outfits. And this being Japan, the native home of cosplay, for every one shoddy, store-bought “sexy (insert noun)” kit, there’s someone sporting a meticulously handcrafted ensemble that would look perfectly at home on a big-budget movie set.

Over the years, Halloween in Shibuya has grown into a can’t-miss attraction. So, we paired up with Tokyo-based photographer Cal Widdall to scout the streets this last Saturday for the most eye-popping costumes. Enjoy!
