Characters

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.

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?

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.

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?)

In Uniform

Firedog from lovelyrita321

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

In Uniform

Locked Up from allie1002

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Pirates

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.

Pirates

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.

Pirates

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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!

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!

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.
