23 Of The Most Outrageous And Amazing NYC Halloween Parade Costumes!

by Julia Lynn Rubin

Each year, hundreds of puppets, people, and tons of bands come together for the Vintage Halloween Parade in New York City.

The parade is open to anyone wearing a costume to participate in, and never fails to draw some absolutely incredible ensembles.

These stunning photos capture not only the magic of the parade and the wide array of visual delights, but the hard work and effort each participant put into their costume. Some people spent months in advance working on their costume!

Here are some of the most amazing costumes from over the past few years, courtesy of their respective photographers.

Please SHARE these amazing photos from NYC’s annual West Village Halloween parade with all of your friends!
