Japanese Art Students Turned Themselves Into Famous Paintings, Including The Biggest Fail Ever – Ecce Homo

Sandwiched between Tokyo and Yokohama, Kawasaki is a Japanese city famous for its heavy industry, open air folk museum, and… one of the biggest and most colorful Halloween celebrations in the country.

This year, body paint artist and SFX makeup wizard Amazing Jiro has delegated his students to the 22nd annual Halloween parade in the city of Kawasaki. About 2,000 people marched the streets wearing their costumes while 120,000 excited spectators took pictures and videos of the spooky crowd. However, none stood out as much as Amazing Jiro’s 6 students. Together, they dressed up as some of the world’s most famous artworks and their effort won the main prize of the event, the Pumpkin Award, as well as 500,000 yen (about $4,400).

The chosen artworks were Elías García Martínez’s Behold the Man, Pablo Picasso’s The Weeping Woman, Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, Vincent van Gogh’s self-portrait, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Continue scrolling to meet them!

Everyone's griping about the fishnet stockings and high heels (in the FB comments at least), but why is no one talking about how super cool and well done those costumes are? Especially "Ecce Homo"!

Yeah, most comments are on the fishnet stockings. But it's Japan where weird things/fashion seems normal.
