24 Dogs With Better Halloween Costumes Than You

The Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade is, obviously, NYC's best day of the year. Masses of pet owners show up annually to show off their beloved canines dressed to the...well, nines. With all the pomp and Instagram-worthy moments, it's kind of like Fashion Week meets the Thanksgiving parade—only better, because dogs.

This year was no exception. I saw everything from mermaids to pumpkins, Ewoks to tacos (like...at least three tacos). Take a look at some of the parade's shining stars, and maybe take a step back to reevaluate your own Halloween costume? You might need to step up your game.
