Every Sunday is Halloween in Harajuku. On the bridge between Meiji Jingu and the Harajuku train station, "CosPlay" girls gather and engage in fierce, erotic battle ... actually they just stand around and pose for pictures, boring unerotic bastards. Before I got there, I'd assumed they all dressed in Goth/Victorian-style outfits, but they wore other kinds of costumes as well. Apparently they dress up as their favorite comic book, video game or cartoon characters. I waited to see if Princess Allura from Voltron would show up, but sadly she did not.
