      Disguised Wolf from pearl2215

      Why we picked this: My, what great costumes you have! Could this fairy tale pair be any sweeter?

    • Characters

      Laney the Scarecrow from britty211

      Why we picked this: These two button-nose faces are a sweet autumn pair! Our favorite part is the patch-covered floppy hat.

    • Characters

      Tin Man from cragelhorst

      Why we picked this: Metallic material never looked better than in this straight-out-of-Oz costume.

    • Characters

      Wonder Dog from lilflowerlover

      Why we picked this: Yes, the getup is great, but we'll admit: Her facial expression says it all.

    • Characters

      Jack Sparrow from steel1936622

      Why we picked this: We can't think of a better costume for a Jack Russell terrier. From the beaded wig to the pirate ship backdrop, the details are perfect.

    • Characters

      Frog Princess from leonard.kate

      Why we picked this: Maybe we love how this dog's curls contrast with the frog's slippery-looking skin, but it also could be the costume's hilarious bulging eyes and wide-open mouth.

    • Characters

      Monster Face from jenniferbuehrer

      Why we picked this: Just look at that face -- his little Shrek looks ready to take on the scariest of ghouls at the Halloween party.

    • Dogs as People

      Be-bop Kelsy from brooke3l

      Why we picked this: It may not be worn by the most obviously appropriate dog breed, but the poodle skirt on this teenybopper is too cute to ignore.

    • Dogs as People

      Two Hippies from jennygret

      Why we picked this: An impressive amount of accessories adorn this peace-loving duo, especially those flowing black wigs!

      Dogs as People

      Aloha from photocraf

      Why we picked this: Their costumes may not look like they were made for the canine form, but these two Golden Retrievers wear them well.

      Dogs as People

      Two Little Indians from bkiss94738

      Why we picked this: We fell in love with the moccasins and braided wigs on these little faux Native Americans.

      Dogs as People

      Pug-a-Haunt-Us from ruffred7

      Why we picked this: This dog is sporting a prime example of all-out-awesome Halloween garb. The war-chief portrait is a nice touch, too.

      Dogs as People

      Puppy Longstocking from teekfiftytwo

      Why we picked this: It's all about those outrageous braids. Honorable mention goes to the stockings, of course.

      Dogs as People

      Harley "Ruff" Rider from msbugg10

      Why we picked this: Our readers voted Harley the winner of BHG.com's Halloween Pet Costumes contest in 2008, and we love him, too! The sign, which offers a "100 bones reward," is especially clever.

    • 15 of 40

      Dogs as People

      Wobbles the Biker from brygidat

      Why we picked this: Clearly, this 4-week-old miniature Chihuahua was born to be wild. Although, we wonder, should "Wobbles" and "biker" really go together?

    • 16 of 40

      Dogs as People

      Doggy Fashionista from hautepaws

      Why we picked this: From the jean cuffs to the leash, we found the most fashion-forward diva on four legs.

    • 17 of 40

      In Uniform

      The Matador from hautepaws

      Why we picked this: We are suckers for irony. We can't imagine a cuter fearless bullfighter than a cowering Chihuahua. (Are those pink claws we see?)

    • 18 of 40

      In Uniform

      Firedog from lovelyrita321

      Why we picked this: Never fear when this fire chief is near; he looks alert and ready for action.

    • 19 of 40

      In Uniform

      Locked Up from allie1002

      Why we picked this: The face on this pooch says one thing: guilty.

    • 20 of 40

      In Uniform

      Cop Kitty from vfalso

      Why we picked this: Details make this costume shine -- from its handcuffs to the shiny badge. Besides, we don't see many cats willing to pose in a costume.

    • 21 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Puglet from pwd11

      Why we picked this: This little piggy is downright hysterical. By the look on his face, we're not sure if he enjoys his costume -- but we sure do.

    • 22 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Daisy Bug from ltybug

      Why we picked this: We loved her pom-pom antennae at first sight -- and we can't deny those sweet eyes, either.

    • 23 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Lion from blindambition1730

      Why we picked this: Aren't lions supposed to be ferocious? The irony of this dog's shy face makes it the perfect king of the jungle -- for Halloween, at least.

    • 24 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Stegosaurus from lacey_9382

      Why we picked this: A dinosaur dog is such an original idea; we've never seen one like it. The fact that it's handmade makes it all the better.

    • 25 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Giant Bees from cheryl.dufficy

      Why we picked this: This honey of a pair looks right at home by the flowerbed.

    • 26 of 40

      Dogs as Other Animals

      Mouse in Cheese from Tianshingi

      Why we picked this: What a presentation! That block of cheese is actually a doggie stroller undercover. To top it off, it's handmade, and so is the Shih Tzu's costume.

      Dogs as Other Animals

      World's Biggest Fly from jodylbm

      Why we picked this: Those mesh-strainer eyes are ingenious, and the rest of the getup is simple but just right for a fly.

    • 28 of 40

      Devil Dogs

      Little Devil Dog from emily.holmes

      Why we picked this: Fiery cape, pointy horns, mean scowl -- we get the point. Don't mess with this bulldog!

    • 29 of 40

      Devil Dogs

      Pearl from sarah.marie.86

      Why we picked this: Pearl's eyes don't exactly reflect the fiendish gaze of her mask, but that makes her all the more adorable.

    • 30 of 40


      Argh, Matey! from mzmariness

      Why we picked this: We love the skull-and-cross-bone hat, and that clever, safer, sewn-on sword replacing the real thing.

    • 31 of 40


      Halloween Pirate from mesteele86

      Why we picked this: We had to smile when we noticed this pirate's oversize hat doubles as an eye patch. And his candy-corn bandana fits the occasion just right.

    • 32 of 40


      Captain Beau & Captain Rhett from texasbelle1021

      Why we picked this: These matching poodles are back from last year with another great Halloween ensemble. The three-tone pirate getups are handmade, too.

    • 33 of 40

      Traditional Costumes

      Burfurd the Pumpkin from hbboop

      Why we picked this: What a perfect dog for a roly-poly pumpkin costume. A wreath of leaves makes a great frame for that bulldog's face.

    • 34 of 40

      Traditional Costumes

      Hot Dog from ttmire3

      Why we picked this: Sure, it's an old idea, but this hot dog looks like it just jumped off the buffet table. Great job making a cliche look fabulous.

    • 35 of 40

      Traditional Costumes

      Ghost Dog from kelly.dixon

      Why we picked this: We love how this dog makes such a classic disguise new again. (Although we wonder how long he stayed undercover.)

    • 36 of 40

      Other Animals

      Ballerina Piggy Sue from doreen.lumbrezer

      Why we picked this: The thought of a pot-bellied ballerina won us over, and anyone who makes a pig this cute deserves some serious recognition.

    • 37 of 40

      Other Animals

      Nightmare on the Town from loveq9z

      Why we picked this: Such a masterpiece gives new meaning to the term "night mare," and really deserves a round of applause. Imagine seeing this horse in motion -- whoa!

    • 38 of 40

      Other Animals

      Movie Star from Patricia21

      Why we picked this: We definitely didn't expect to see a pet turkey, but this one delivered with style!

    • 39 of 40

      Other Animals

      Rooster from senyshin

      Why we picked this: We have never seen a chinchilla in costume before, but this furry little rooster must be as good as it gets.
