Ikebukuro Halloween Cosplay Festival Parade

The Ikebukuro Halloween Cosplay Festival is a large cosplay event in Japan where the city of Ikebukuro hosts cosplayers on its streets, parks and stores. The event was hosted by Dwango and Animate Ltd. and took place last weekend for its 6th year of operation. Unsurprisingly, the number of visitors reached a record high of around 123,000 visitors, including 21,000 cosplayers.

During the festival, people gathered together for cosplay related activities like a parade where 300 cosplayers marched across the city. New activities this year included “Ikehalo DJ Party”, a DJ show which featured anime/vocaloid songs, “Ikehalo Tea Party”, a meetup for anime/manga/game/cosplay fans, and “Coscheki Land”, an event where visitors can take pictures with 70 popular cosplayers and odorite (dancers).

The representation from anime series released in 2019 like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was a major highlight of the event.
