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.

While this is certainly cute. I find it interesting that not all, but most, of these dogs are tiny. I'm guessing larger dogs would never put up with these costumes...which makes me kind of sad for these little guys.
