Who says Halloween can’t be oh~so~cute and adorable!!
Just in time for this year’s frightful ……(゜Д゜;)！！ festivities, HYDE~♥ returns for a now second encore to his now original Halloween Junky Orchestra turned “Halloween Dolls” version ^^!! If you go back to the Halloween of 2013 it saw the sequel which brought about a revamped and newly animated version of the original which brought together a pretty impressive cast of artists and musicians likened to the darkened and ghoulish style of HYDE’s trick or treat anthem.
A macabre filled nostalgic look back at the original and second coming of HYDE’s Halloween vision is included at end of this post ^^.
This year’s release as aforementioned has taken the edge off a bit as to say it’s gone completely idol~ly♥ as HYDE not only rewrote the complete lyrics to make them absolutely 100% idol~friendly, but he also had the choreography completely re~imagined as well giving it the maximum adorableness which youth will allow ….which pretty much says that it’s exploded ~* the cute-O-meter here, putting it oh~so~lightly!~!

Halloween Dolls are:
Lead Vocals: Watanabe Konomi
Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the Halloween Dolls take on “Halloween Party” is chock full of wonderfully ghoulish~animation and while the melody remains the same you so gotta love the lyrical makeover this version presents as it’s not unlike a school play performance as envisioned through pure youth and just what this much celebrated night of frights means throughout our wonder-years っo(*´∀｀)o！The cast here so adorably impressive too with their dance nuances and facial expressions, really enthusiastically bringing to life quite a cute twist on the festivities, and I so love their wardrobes ….makes you say Awww~♥ =)!
The “Dance” music video version is just a bit below…..

It’s that haunting time of year again!! And you may remember HYDE’s Halloween project dubbed the Halloween Junky Orchestra where he assembled an amazing cast of artists who came together to create pretty much the most fantastic Halloween themed anthem like ever!!!
Now fast forward to this year’s frightful festivities as on October the 16th HYDE released a reprise of sorts or rather a supped up version of last year’s Halloween Junky Orchestra as this time around the included LE DVD contains in addition to last year’s original full length music video, an all new HYDE featured version…a HYDE featured version with lyrics as well as a very entertaining and in depth making of clip~! which is most awesome~! Just reminds us that whether in dark makeup or not, HYDE is incredibly hot and oh~soooo handsome~♥!!!!
So here’s the 2013 version release of “Halloween Party” which comes housed in an outer slip case, unfortunately no amazing ~* poster extra this time around but nonetheless the additional content on this year’s DVD makes it also a must have like last season’s amazing production.
What I’ve decided to do here is revamp last year’s post for “Halloween Party” as I’ve kept all of last year’s content here intact while adding to it this year’s DVD extras which are as aforementioned brand spanking new for 2013. So the original full length music video can be found and viewed by scrolling down further into what will eventually become the original (last year’s) posting. Here atop I’ll be adding this year’s booklet scans as well as all of the new content from this year’s DVD =D.
~Halloween Junky Orchestra “Halloween Party” booklet scans~
In addition to the entire special guests all star cast and song lyrics this year’s booklet also features a complete run down of the ghoulish dance choreography broken down step by step as featured on the all new HYDE’s animated version music video. Now if only you could get your cat(s) to dance along with U =D.
~”Halloween Party” feat. HYDE version (music video)~
This all new version has HYDE himself going anime on screen as he is accompanied this time around with a backing dance troupe of skeletal cats!! It’s a most cool alternate take on last year’s masterpiece which also features a vast array of shuffling in and out backgrounds to go along with all of the dance choreography macabre!
~Halloween Junky Orchestra “Halloween Party” (making)~
Here HYDE himself talks us through everything from character development, designs and concepts to what it took to put together this massive project!!! The sets in themselves are quite amazing as one would expect an abundance of CGs here, however this making of dispels any of that as much of the sets are entire full scale atmospheres complete with buildings and more props that you can shake a bone @! The makeup…so cool too and if you enjoyed the original music video (posted a bit later here if you scroll down much further) then checking out its making of is indeed a must see.

And here you can follow along with this most catchy tune as the song’s lyrics dance across the screen line by line and what better way to check out those skeletal dancing cats again =D.
~The original 2012 release~
(originally posted on October 31st, 2012)
This release is really amaZing~*~~*!!! Windowed slip case, panoramic art gracing the jewel cases’ backing, second to none Halloween video clip~♥ and ohhhh that first press poster?
Yep it’s not made of the typical paper sort…..no no no I’m not quite certain but it’s much more like a vinyl print I’d have to guess and in its full gloss so ghoul~ly beautiful! (photographed above). I’ve just never seen such quality in a poster extra release ever!!..and I’ve gotten a lot of posters before! This one’s of the highest quality!!!
Somehow fittingly the scan below of the inner jewel case has taken on an obscured and ghostly representation…of course it’s just the spacing caused by the clear plastic jewel casing and yet……a rather fun effect as I’ve never scanned one of these before.
