I find matching clothes to be unnecessary. I'm glad many Japanese people feel the same way.



Q: Who cares what other people think?!?!
A: Japanese people do.

Halloween has been getting bigger every year since I arrived.
I expect over 100 people to attend my Halloween costume party this year.

I will have pics on my blog after the party.

Maybe one year I'll be able to come to Japan around Halloween time~ I think it would be a great experience (^^) Especially if you can get tickets to that yearly(?) concert thing in Tokyo.

it seems people feed off the torment of those they think fall in to place lower than they do where I live.However, that doesn't seem to effect me.
i quite enjoy the reactions i get from coming to school in my favorite gothic lolita dress, a pair of cat ears, some army boots, make up, and floresent striped socks(lime green or purple). then the next day it's a pair of jeans, converse and my fave band tee. then the next day something extreme...etc.
it really depends on my mood...
'im pretty much the resident weirdo at my school.
cool..
it doesn't matter what they think, because i am gonna be famous,
wether that makes me a sellout or not,
i couldn't give two f***ing shits.
halloween is my fave holiday!
and no, i'm not just being stereotypical..f*** you.

fear the double post! augh!

heh, awesome. I applaud doing what you want/believe, despite how society or the people around you feel about it (with a few exceptions.) heh, I'm not sure how I feel about attempting to get famous as a form of revenge...but if it floats your boat, go for it.



thnx boboloko for the sig!

haha new years celebration in the US is really different than that of japan. shit, i wouldn't mind taking off of work for three days and celebrate the coming of the new year. because i'm still young, it's more of a party night rather than a mochi and family type of day. we stay up all night partying and burning fireworks and basically get drunk.

obon, yeah we celebrate that here in hawaii. it's probably on a smaller scale than that of japan also, but it's here. i used to go when i was a child, but i'm too old for it already. i remember the last time that i went though, there were mostly little children and a lot of old people dancing.

...this is just my perspective on the situation...

Masegu's point is that Halloween is an American holiday, so why should people in Japan be expected to celebrate it. Just as Obon is an Japanese holiday, so we don't recognize it in America.

Do the Japanese celebrate this holiday? If yes, what are the differences between their celebration and the way Americans celebrate this holiday? Or isn't there any Halloween-stuff in Japan yet ...?

Would be so great if anyone of you would tell me about it


Have a nice day!!

Greets,
Lars
In japan they don't celebrate holloween i think that is why they have cosplay and like harajuuku, and gothic lolita and ect....maybe or maybe not....nevermind...i really dunno...sOrry
