Revelers Sport Inventive Costumes for Halloween Parade, Contest in Japan

KAWASAKI, Japan – Thousands of revelers gathered in the Japanese city of Kawasaki on Sunday for a Halloween costume parade and the chance to win prizes.

Besides the usual gory face paint, mummified nuns, a hamburger and fries, robots and cosplay characters provided just some of the inspiration to this year’s participants.

The 22nd edition of the event saw some 2,500 participants from all over Japan taking part in the festivities, the organizers said on the event’s website.

The participant deemed to have the best costume would be awarded 500,000 yen ($4,468), the highest cash prize in the history of the contest.

Halloween, otherwise known as All Saints’ Eve, will be celebrated all over the world on Oct. 31.
