Enjoy Halloween all over again by looking at these trick-or-treaters whose photos were submitted by BHG.com users.
Butterfly from mmmcatee
Why we picked this: With pom-pom butterfly antennae, this first-time trick-or-treater is sure to get some sweet attention.
Lion from lkvannortwick
Why we picked this: This kid looks ready to roar in his lion costume. And check out that wild yarn mane!
Shark from barcena3
Why we picked this: We had to laugh when we laid eyes on this sweet roly-poly shark.
Little Stinker from jdittman1676111
Why we picked this: Somehow, this furry little critter in the grass makes us want to cuddle with a skunk. Yes, she's that cute.
Teddy Bear from i>c_paa
Why we picked this: Could he look any cuddlier? We didn't think so, either.
June Bug from creativePeeps
Why we picked this: June's apronlike wings are perfect for this simple costume.
Puppy Jack from kimbernic1
Why we picked this: We have never seen a kid so excited to be a puppy! His smile is absolutely contagious, and we love his spots.
Snow White from lkvannortwick
Why we picked this: This little girl makes a classic costume extra special with her wavy black locks. The oversize red bow in her hair adds the finishing touch.
The Pumpkin King from shandee3333800
Why we picked this: We love his wonderfully frightening face paint! Those hollow eyes and wide grin grabbed our attention right away.
Baby Ewok from Julie Thorup
Why we picked this: This costume was inspired by the baby's "perfectly sweet cheeks and big eyes," then pieced together with different elements of animal-costume patterns. We love the creativity!
Man in Yellow Hat & Curious George from estanding
Why we picked this: This classic duo makes knock-out costumes for two. Baby sister looks ready to live up to the Curious George moniker!
Dorothy & Cowboy from tavalon4114054
Why we picked this: The little dude's cowhide-and-red combo says "howdy." Is that Toto we see in Dorothy's basket? Sure, the pair may not be a common couple, but they sure are cute together.
Raggedy Ann from erinmaybanks
Why we picked this: This darling mop-top is too cute to ignore, and she's got the nose and lips to match her striking hair.
Hello Kitty from cochran41
Why we picked this: It's hard to believe that this kitty costume was handmade -- and that it stayed so sparkling white.
Garden Gnome from naysway2002
Why we picked this: This convincing gnome seems at home in his front-porch garden, and the clever costume looks simple to put together.
Jack(son) in the Box from tia84201
Why we picked this: Why not turn a kid into a life-size version of his favorite toy for Halloween? Besides, as with this costume, our favorite ones are the kind you can make with household items.
Princess Leia & R2D2 from aileencook
Why we picked this: We can hardly believe it, but both costumes are handmade. And there's actually a kid in that R2D2 disguise!
Little Pumpkin from sophiebutter
Why we picked this: This little pumpkin would blend right in with the rest of the patch, if it weren't for those big blue eyes!
Blue Witch from csuedial47
Why we picked this: Her blue-on-blue webby witch costume simply electrifies, and it couldn't go better with those bright eyes.
Hippie Dude from starhuntermom
Why we picked this: Those graffiti pants and handmade protest sign are loud and proud. Peace, dude!
Volcano Top from hildyh
Why we picked this: This kid deserves an award just for getting this intricate costume on and keeping it in one piece!
Popcorn from luvinmomx3
Why we picked this: Is that real popcorn? We think so! And it makes for an original kid's costume that, frankly, makes us a little hungry.
