Animals

Lion from lkvannortwick

Why we picked this: This kid looks ready to roar in his lion costume. And check out that wild yarn mane!

Animals

Shark from barcena3

Why we picked this: We had to laugh when we laid eyes on this sweet roly-poly shark.

Animals

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.

Animals

Teddy Bear from i>c_paa

Why we picked this: Could he look any cuddlier? We didn't think so, either.

Animals

June Bug from creativePeeps

Why we picked this: June's apronlike wings are perfect for this simple costume.

Animals

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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!

Characters

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!

Characters

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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.

Characters

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!

Other

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!

Other

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.

Other

Hippie Dude from starhuntermom

Why we picked this: Those graffiti pants and handmade protest sign are loud and proud. Peace, dude!

Other

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!

Other

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.
