Wednesday WIN

 Happy Hallowe'en, everyone. To celebrate the spooky occasion, here are some costumes from this year's 22nd annual Tompkins Square Hallowe'en Dog Parade in New York City.

Butthead is my favourite.

Here are some more that I thought were particularly funny and creative.

All pictures came from this page.  Check it out for many more hilarious and very creative costumes, and find out who the winner was.

From Hermione's Heart


Roz said...

LOL, these are hilarious. I pity the poor dogs!

ronnie said...

Poor dogs. The last one made me smile.

Thanks Hermione.


Lady Koregan said...

Oh dear,

I'm very sorry, Hermione, but I think I would call some of these a fail...

No one's dog should ever be wearing handcuffs!

Hermione said...

Roz - I think they get used to it over the years.

Ronnie - I liked it too.

Lady K - Who knows? Maybe it's quite common in NYC :-)


SNP said...

Happy Halloween. Thanks for sharing the site and the pics.

Anonymous said...

Very funny. Thank you.

Minielle Labraun said...

What a riot! The 50 shades? OMG dogs?
I too love butt head.

Hermione said...

SNP - Happy Hallowe'en to you too!

Joey - You're most welcome.

Minelle - The fact that two dogs appeared in 50 Shades costumes makes e wonder how many others were dressed that way but didn't get their pictures posted.

I love the corgi (now isn't that a coincidence).
The look on his face is so clearly: "OK, I have done it for you. Now can we please return to normal? I'm SOOOO ashamed of this."


As amusing as these were I promise any dog that I ever share my life with, that I will never dress them up as anything.


Unknown said...

Very cute. I couldn't dress up my doggies in SM regalia, though, what if they discovered they liked it? Where would it end?

Hi Hermione,
This is a little off topic but it does fit in with the day. My husband and I were downtown on Saturday night, near one of the more popular streets for clubbing. Of course many young adults were in Halloween costumes - the usual clowns, cops, nurses, etc. It raised some questions which you may enjoy:

What do prostitutes dress up as for Halloween? What about transvestites? Catholic school girls?

We were having a good laugh coming up with answers!

Hope you enjoyed and have a spooktacular night!

Happy Halloween Hermione!

Aimless Rambling said...

They are so cute but I feel so bad for the dogs. They hate it so.

Happy Halloween to you

Hermione said...

Bas - I think Corgies are very sweet, and patient too, to put up with that costume.

Prefectdt - I don't dress mine up either, but it's very common.

Lill Ian - That's a can of worms you wouldn't want to open:-)

A Lurker - that's so funny! I suppose they dress as whatever the opposite is.

Zoe - And the same to you!

Sunnygirl - I suspect some of them enjoy the attention.

A friend of mine went to a home improvement store and took a ton of little paint sample cards. He showed up at our Halloween party with the cards all around his neck and said "Look, I'm 50 Shades of Grey!" *rolling eyes*

Hermione said...

Lea - LOL! That's similar to one of the ideas for costumes in our national paper. Wear a bathing suit, then attach hundreds of grey paint samples to it (how? hot glue gun?) so that it looks like a mini-dress. Carry a rope and wear boots to complete the ensemble.
