For the most hardcore Halloween fans, there was also the annual costume contest, where dogs (and their humans) strutted their stuff for a panel of judges and emcee Giuliana Rancic.

Check out a few of the victors and our personal honorable mentions below. And if your dog still needs a costume idea for this year, might we suggest Eleven from Stranger Things?
