On October 31, SUSHISAMBA takes inspiration from the COSPLAY (costume + play) subculture of Japan. The theme not only spotlights our cultural roots, but it also pays tribute to the anniversary of our renowned COSPLAY Tuesday Night party in Miami.

Some history: COSPLAY originated as a type of performance art in which participants dress to represent a specific character or idea. Most of these characters/concepts are derived directly from pop fiction including manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasty movies. In Japan, teenagers gather in Tokyo's Harajuku district to engage in COSPLAY.

On Halloween, all SUSHISAMBA locations will feature a spooktacular dessert special and a colorful COSPLAY cocktail.

At SUSHISAMBA rio in Chicago and SUSHISAMBA 7 in New York City, fully costumed (head to toe) guests can enter for the chance to win $1,000 cash in our COSPLAY COSTUME CONTEST. Judging will held throughout the evening, but the winner will be announced by MC between 9pm and midnight.

At SUSHISAMBA park in New York City, fully costumed (head to toe) guests can enter for a chance to win a $200 gift certificate to SUSHISAMBA. Two runners-up will receive a $100 gift certificate. All particiants will be photographed and a winner will be notified by phone/email within the week following Halloween.
