Halloween is coming up! It’s on Sunday this year.
Do you guys have any plans?
Not yet. I heard about an event for teens at the mall.
What kind of event?
You can go trick-or-treating inside the mall. Free candy is given out at shops.
What? Only little kids go trick-or-treating. Don’t you think?
No! My sister Tiffany came trick-or-treating with me until she was 15.
I think it sounds fun!
Is Halloween celebrated in Japan?
Well, I never went trick-or-treating in Japan, but I always loved dressing up! Sometimes, I attended a neighborhood Halloween party with my friends.
I like dressing up, too. On Halloween, you can be anything for the day!
I already have some ideas for my costume this year.
You know, there’s a costume contest with prizes at the mall event.
That gives me an idea!
I want a one-of-a-kind costume this year! A Halloween costume like that is not sold in stores.
What do you mean?
Min-jun, you and Ayane are talented designers. Will you two make a costume for me?
Brilliant idea, Brandon! I want one, too!
Hold on. We don’t have that much time until Halloween!
Here’s a suggestion. I’ll make my costume and Emma’s, and Min-jun will make his and Brandon’s. How about it?
Well… OK! It’s a deal.
What are you looking for today, Min-jun?
Hi, Kiara. I’m going to make two Halloween costumes. I drew these designs. My friend wants to be a vampire.
Let’s see. I have a velvet vest and a wool cape.
Wow! These are perfect for a vampire.
Look, I found a top hat, too!
When was this hat made? It looks old.
Actually, it’s new! The seller used old silk fabric to make it.
