CLASSIC HORROR MOVIE MONSTERS COSPLAY COSTUMES, weirdest club nights and nightclubs in TOkyo Japan, Uguisudani, strange vinyl latex costumes, handmade pumpkin mask, Japan crazy weird, the mummy, bride of frankenstein wig and makeup, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde face

Last last weekend, while you were cleaning your room, Yukiro Dravarious and friends were conquering Tokyo’s wildest fetish cosplay party, Department H. Here is Yukiro’s report. (You can see my previous coverage of the party here and here.)

We went fabulously late to the most extravagant event I ever been to: Department H. It’s located in Uguisudani on the Yamanote line, so if you live close to central Tokyo, it’s well worth the extra minutes to ride there from Shinjuku or Shibuya (where the parties normally take place). I had only been once before (for the Bizarre World TV episode co-hosted by our lovely La Carmina). I found the party surprisingly amusing, and this time was no exception.

My friends and I did a team-cosplay effort as The Bride of Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (at the same time), and The Mummy. As you can see, we went with a classic horror movie monster theme. (Jekyll/Hyde is, of course, Happy Phantom in another guise.)

It started off with a bang: all the drag queen or transexual-like people went on stage to show off their amazing costumes. A cat-walk to die for! That day, they had closed the bar to everyone’s surprise so we had to buy cheap “combini” (convenience store) booze instead and we were allowed (and expected!) to bring it inside the venue. A very rare experience in Japan.

Carmina’s note: I am in LOVE with Manabu, the dashing creature in the polyester shirt! I want to marry his Prince Valiant haircut!

Department H opens at midnight and the entrance fees are 3000yen with dress-code, 4000-5000yen without dress-code. So this party really gives you a discount for your effort.

From the bizarre to the disturbing to the amazing, it’s all here. If there is a slight possibility that a fetish or outfit can be done, it WILL be done at Department H — no matter how weird. Such as a cow riding a huge red “robotic-van” octopus. It was available for all of us to try for free and was rather insane!

On the huge stage there were various odd performances. In between the shows, they showed some very “interesting” films that you could watch all day, if there wasn’t a party going on…

Department H is a party worth cosplaying for. Everyone is super-friendly and extreme-ness is appreciated (a rare value in this society!). I recommend that you check it out if you’re in Tokyo on the first Saturday of every month.

Round-up of my latest CNNGo articles (see all of them here):

Baby mice wine, bat hearts, and other resilient folk medicines (read about strange Asian remedies)
Tinkering with Asian toy cameras (I try out the Ikimono and Super Fat from Superheadz in Tokyo)
The true international house of pancakes (yummy photo gallery of Asian pancakes, including cute faced ones)

I think I want a vegan chocolate chip cookie now…

Song of the Day #286: Aicle. – Hammerhead (If you haven’t heard of this Visual Kei band… you have now.)

      I was so distracted by her cross-eyes that I didn’t even notice that! It might be from a random stall in Harajuku… I’ll keep my eyes peeled next time.

    Lovely! Where are all the lovely Decadence crew? Traveling perhaps! Very nice indeed!

      Hm, the crowd doesn’t really overlap… Department H doesn’t have goth/Cyber music or bands, so the people who go to Decadence for the music won’t come to this…
