The Best Costumes From The Tompkins Square Dog Parade

This past Saturday, the 21st annual Dog Halloween Parade took place in New York City's Tompkins Square Park and let me tell you, the economic downturn had no effect on this year's extravagant costumes. Okay, well, there was an Occupy Wall Street Dog, as seen above. Click through to see who took home first place, as well as the costumes that didn't but might as well be appreciated for the adorableness that they are, anyway.
