Japanese Take Halloween To a New Level With “Every-Day Situation” Costumes

Did you know that there’s a subculture in Japan called Jimi Halloween (地味ハロウィン) which roughly translates to “mundane Halloween”. The idea behind it is as mundane as it sounds – people dress up in a costume that tells a boring story and involves plain and regular clothes. The whole thing was started in 2014 by a small group of adults at Daily Portal Z who “kind of wanted to participate in the festivities of Halloween, but were too embarrassed to go all out in witch or zombie costumes”. Scroll below for the best boring costumes and get inspired for your next Halloween outfit!
