Hundreds of dressed-up doggies descended upon Tompkins Square Park on Saturday for the 26th annual Halloween Dog Parade, and it was an adorable sight to behold.
Halloween came early this weekend as New York Comic Con took over the Javits Center and surrounding area. I stopped in briefly to see if the Topps stand was selling the new Garbage Pail Kids series, “Disgrace to the White House”, and faced a crush of humanity as I tried to make my way to the Drippy Donald cards. Best thing I saw on the way there was probably the dude dressed as Barf the mog (half man, half dog– he’s his own best friend). Until the Spaceballs sequel actually happens, it’s the only thing we’ve got. Click through our slideshow to see who else made the scene, and then check out scenes from the cosplay cruise that served as an after-party.
“At what address do the Dursleys live when Harry is delivered at their doorstep?” demanded one of the guys from last year’s winning trivia team, the Remembralls. It was Saturday afternoon and they had come to host a Harry Potter trivia contest at PotterCon at The Bell House. “This is the missionary position of questions, people!”
Cue up Lou Reed’s “Halloween Parade” and click through our photos of the 41st annual installment, which rolled up Sixth Avenue last night with Whoopi Goldberg as grand marshall. Then tell us who wore it better: the humans or the doggies?
