’Tis the season to spend way too much time and/or money and/or creative energy on dressing up man’s best friend in the best Halloween costume EVER and impress everyone in New York City. Everyone, that is, except your dog, who – as you drag him through the park, trying to make sure his angel wings/Jaws fin/sparkly MJ paw gloves don’t fall off – will plot to kill you in your sleep.

Meanwhile, we’ve rounded up arguably the best dogs-in-costume events happening this weekend and next, all over New York City. Bring it, bitches! (You too, studs!)
