Halloween, Church Street, Toronto, 2016

What a difference 17 years make. In the 90s Church Street Halloween was mostly gay men in drag. This year it was mostly Japanese  and some Chinese and Korean girls doing cosplay, so it was more like an anime convention. The costumes were a lot better in the 90s.
