The costume chaos and revelry of Japan's gigantic Shibuya Halloween celebration isn't for everyone. That's why for the past five years, office workers at entertainment media group Daily Portal Z (whose creative resume includes a woman crafting handmade pigeon shoes to make friends with pigeons) have responded with a growlingly popular e Halloween party called "Jimi Halloween". "Jimi" means "plain" or "understated", and the concept was to provide an alternative costume party for people too embarrassed to hit the streets in elaborate costumes and zombie makeup.
If anything, the yearly mundane costume party has yielded perhaps even more creative output than it's Shibuya counterpart, with attendees churning out hilariously understated costumes inspired by both the most niche and everyday people you encounter.
For example, a man who found a cockroach and grabbed whatever was immediately around him to use as a weapon.
Or a woman who showed up at a BBQ but clearly has no intention of helping out.
As you can see, some are so specific they require a bit of an explanation, but once it hits you, it's more thoughtful than your standard bloody zombie! Here's a few of our favorites from this year's party.
