The 17 Most Insane Pictures From the Doggies and Tiaras Pageant

For last Friday’s Doggies and Tiaras Pageant, contestants pulled out all the stops to try and take home the coveted crown.

The event took place at Toyota of Manhattan on 11th Avenue and was divided into three categories: Active Wear, Talent, and Glamour Wear. While dogs of all shapes and sizes strutted their stuff in front of judges hoping to impress them and grab the gold, the event also raised money for Yorkie 911 Rescue, a nonprofit organization that places Yorkshire terrier rescues into loving homes.

In the end, King Tut and ZZ were crowned king and queen, but it was a close call.

Check out all the insane costumes — and behind the scenes action.
