Police inspect the sexiest Halloween costume in Shibuya this year
The biggest story about Halloween in Japan this year has been Shibuya’s attempt to cancel it with an insane police presence, another (unenforceable) ban on drinking in the streets for several days (actually in place since 2019), and large amounts of public money spent on advertising and billboards declaring that street parties and people in costumes are not allowed. They even fenced up poor old Hachiko — what did he do?! — in an effort to prevent people gathering in the district.
It hasn’t stopped people going there, of course, but in lesser numbers and with lower degrees of energy. The halcyon days are over.
We still spotted some decidedly provocative examples of costumes in Shibuya and Osaka, which is apparently emerging as another center of this street cosplay culture. Ikebukuro, in contrast with its southern neighbor, has also embraced Halloween with an actual organized cosplay festival, despite Toshima’s own efforts to gentrify what was always a charmingly unsophisticated district.
The Halloween season is still relatively warm in Tokyo, which encourages people to dress in skimpy and sexy costumes.
Here’s exhibit A: a practically nude woman, nominally dressed up as Hello Kitty and receiving an inspection from the boys in blue. Yeah, we’re sure their curiosity and insistence on taking a closer look is entirely driven by concerns about legality.
If this extraordinary looking lady seems familiar, you might know her from her internet fame. She’s Sunnybunny (aka Sunny Bunny Cupcake), a model who prances around at events almost naked except for some nipple pasties and barely-there panties. Oh, and she’s sometimes bald and her skin is usually dyed some wild color like green or pink, and insanely long nails.
The characters she plays vary, but an alien theme is common. She dressed like this to strut her stuff down the runway in Paris.
Her breasts are quite something, as is her curvy waist and butt, though we’re not sure if fancy the prospect of having sex with someone who’s green.
We’re not quite sure how Sunnybunny makes money as a model engaged in this kind of style of cosplaying (appearances at events and parties?), but we hope she enjoys a long and productive career doing what she does.
Although she was spotted in the wild, out on the streets of Shibuya, we think she was actually on her way to or from a party/event where she was appearing as part of the official cast of performers.
Here she is with some friends.
And here is exhibit B.
This fine specimen is what you might have seen on a visit to the Halloween street party in Osaka last weekend, as shared by Takataka online (among snaps of other cosplayers).
Sadly, he censored the picture before publishing it, blurring the best part of the image! We’re sure your imagination can fill in the rest.
