The Monster Mash

fuzzHow many drag queens did you see last night? If the answer wasn’t well over 3,000, then you weren’t at the Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village. The Avenue of the Americas was packed from Spring to 21st, not only with your traditional devils, witches and Teletubbies, but also Popes with blinking LED crosses, Transformers and a Scrabble set.  Even New York’s finest showed their support (right). After the jump there is a small, delightful cross-section of the best of All Hallow’s Eve 2007.


The West Village‘s Top 5 Costumes of 2007

1.  Beta Max Tape – Move over VHS!  The old cat is back in town.

2.  David Bowie circa 1983 (pictured) – This guy was a real Space Oddity.

3.  Toof Fairy (pictured) – Just like in your childhood dreams!

4.  Dorothy (pictured) – We’re certainly not in Kansas anymore.

5.  Giant penises – Whether being pushed around in a wheelbarrow or marching erect, these guys were all over the place.



 Honorable Mention:

I’m not really sure what this guy is, but…
