New Yorkers do Halloween better than anyone else, and now that it's officially fall it's time to start making plans and figuring out the logistics of your topical Dumpster Fire costume.

To help navigate the freakshow, we've rounded up some of the more unconventional parties happening on Halloween weekend this year.
