Here Are the Best of the Best!
We were blown away by all of your submissions! We couldn't be more impressed with our furry fans. Even though we could only pick one winner, we decided to give out special awards to a pack of runners-up. You know, just for barking rights.
Click through to see all of our favorites: You'll have to scroll to the end to see who we chose as the top dog!

In the spirit of #ShriekorChic, little Calisi simply nailed the chic look with her embellished witch hat. She's certainly cast a spell on us.

Kona's "shriek"-inspired "Octo-Pit" getup is nothing short of outrageous. We have to admit this costume gave us goose bumps. It turns out Kona's grandmother made it herself. Color us impressed!

Cosette loves to dress up for Halloween. In the past, she's been the Tin Man and "Frankenweenie." But we both agreed that the mask she's wearing this year belongs on a runway. Do they allow dogs at Fashion Week?!

Quincy Bean decided to be a biker this Halloween, and we're not messing with him. The closest we've ever gotten to being bikers is riding on the back of the tractors on Martha's farm. Happy tails, Quincy Bean!

Well, obviously we got a kick out of these two kitchen warriors, even if they could use a few pointers ...

Best Pop Culture Costume
Confession: We're huge "Breaking Bad" fans. Here are Dunder and Munster doing thier best Walter White and Jesse Pinkman impressions. They are the ones who knock ... our socks off!

Coolest Cat ... Er, Dog
Walter is one bad dude. He looks like one of the Blues Brothers to us, and we dig his style.

Best Retro Costume
How could we not love a bulldog in a poodle skirt? Daisy Gordita the bobby soxer makes us want to have a dance party!

We love that her name is Candy, because it looks like sweets are this chocolate Lab's favorite thing. She'll even tolerate wearing a costume for her treats. But Candy, we think your "Tigadore Retriever" costume is fierce -- and we love that it's a no-sew DIY!

And the Winner Is ...
... this garden-inspired trio! Charlotte, Walter, and Sophia's handmade costumes really resonate with us because they represent what we love most -- being out in Martha's garden. And since Martha's costume this year was inspired by orchids (if you haven't watched our "Shriek or Chic" video series or seen Martha's 2014 costume, click here!), we felt these adorable pups make for the perfect complement. Congrats, you three!

Honorable Mention: Cutest Cats
Okay, so our contest was only open to dogs. But Loretta Jo and Duane the Sphynx cats are so perfect as Coneheads in their cozy little sitting room that it made us think next year, maybe we'll open up the contest to pets of all persuasions. What do you think -- should we do it?!
