Disguised Wolf from pearl2215
Why we picked this: My, what great costumes you have! Could this fairy tale pair be any sweeter?
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.
Tin Man from cragelhorst
Why we picked this: Metallic material never looked better than in this straight-out-of-Oz costume.
Wonder Dog from lilflowerlover
Why we picked this: Yes, the getup is great, but we'll admit: Her facial expression says it all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Two Hippies from jennygret
Why we picked this: An impressive amount of accessories adorn this peace-loving duo, especially those flowing black wigs!
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.
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.
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.
Puppy Longstocking from teekfiftytwo
Why we picked this: It's all about those outrageous braids. Honorable mention goes to the stockings, of course.
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.
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?
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.
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?)
Firedog from lovelyrita321
Why we picked this: Never fear when this fire chief is near; he looks alert and ready for action.
Locked Up from allie1002
Why we picked this: The face on this pooch says one thing: guilty.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Giant Bees from cheryl.dufficy
Why we picked this: This honey of a pair looks right at home by the flowerbed.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
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!
Movie Star from Patricia21
Why we picked this: We definitely didn't expect to see a pet turkey, but this one delivered with style!
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.
