Dogs in costumes: 2012 Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade (slide show)

Costumed canines came out in droves for the annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade.

We're always amazed by the creativity of contestants at the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade, which took place on Saturday. This year was no exception: Among the more clever outfits we saw were pups dressed as Evita, E.T. and one of the sandworms from Beetlejuice. Unsurprisingly, some of the costumes had a political bent: we found at least one dog dressed as unemployed Big Bird, as well as a pup sandwiched in a binder full of dogs. But our favorite by far: "Mutt Romney," a pooch in a Little Tykes plastic car (with an effigy of Romney's dog Seamus tied to the roof) that was festooned with the sign "47% of dogs rely on their masters." Click through for even more of our favorite dogs in costume.
