Pregnant? What About Halloween Costumes?

Pregnant?  What About Halloween Costumes?

I know they enjoyed helping and the day after Halloween they were still lifting up my shirt to see where the pumpkin had gone. They were a little mad that I had washed off my womens costume. My husband and group of friends go out every Halloween (usually as a group). I was 8 months pregnant and wanted a womens costume to show that. I started with a cardboard box and spray painted it white. I found some knobs from an old oven and sprayed painted them silver around the bottom for the knobs. For the “burners”, I cut out round cardboard and used pipe cleaners to create the look. I cut the “door” and used saran wrap for the window. Finally as an after thought I added the “backsplash” and wrote “BAKE WITH CARE” on one side and “TIMER: 7 WEEKS LEFT” on the other side. I was 8 months pregnant and came up with a great way to use my big belly!

I took over with the face while they went and put their costumes on. As we were trick or treating I didn’t think anyone was paying much attention to my belly. I had a few people looking but it wasn’t till we went to my brother-in-law’s house that I realized people couldn’t tell whether it was my belly or a t-shirt.

I bought some felt from the craft store and cut and pinned together a big diaper and I also cut and taped fake nipples on to simulate being naked:) It was a great, fun womens costume that got a lot of laughs. Very easy to make. The most expensive part were the Pajama pants. We had a blast and I know our little guy (born November 26th) will see this photo of my costume and have fond memories of his stay.

For my husband (who was a great sport) I bought a plain white apron and chef hat. I used felt to cut out the “THE BUN MAKER” and put silver glitter around it to make it stand out. Needless to say we were the hit of the night. Everyone loved it and it was fun to show off my belly! This was a real womens costume! I already had a cream colored shirt so I began searching for something to wear on the bottom. A pair of Pajama pants did the trick. Click any item to see more details.

Homemade Halloween Costumes

We bought flannel shirts, a toy rifle and old jeans from a Good Will store so the only thing we paid anything for was the wigs. I got this womens costume idea from seeing a fat man draw on his stomach and making it whistle. I was 7 months pregnant the first time I did this costume and figured if a fat man can do it then so can a pregnant woman. I had heavy shoulder pads in the jacket but to make shoulders you can also use 2 small balloons and tie them around your hips. Staple or attach gloves to the end of the sleeves for hands.

Halloween Costumes Ideas for Preggies

(but not the ones directly below)

I had bought some inflatable beach ball frogs from Oriental Trading for a child’s party. I had two of the round little cuties left over and… INSPIRATION! at 8 1/2 months pregnant, my belly, only somewhat larger than the beach balls… well maybe half again as large as the beach balls (sigh and chuckle) appeared to be perfect Mama Frog size! So by the time I sat the two little frog balls in my lap with my decorated belly, I had an entire frog pond in my lap (and incidentally, it felt like I was carrying an entire body of water for the whole last month of pregnancy – ha ha ha)!

I was sitting around thinking I wanted to do something special this year with my boys before our new baby arrives. I thought what better way to make it special than to go trick or treating with them (I usually let dad take them out) so therefore wanted a womens costume. I drew the outline of the pumpkin on my belly with the help of a mirror then let the boys (6 and almost4) fill it in. I know this was a special way to connect with my boys. A big Sumo Wrestler was just the costume!

Halloween Contests

Every Halloween a number of venues host contests that have a womens costume category. If you’ve got a particularly creative or detailed costume, you can actually win quite a bit of money in some of these contests. If you’re serious about competing for the cash, you’re going to want to spend some time shopping for and comparing womens costumes to find just the right ensemble for you.

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for costumes on sale for Halloween or you’re just trying to go to a fancy dress party on the cheap, is here with the cheap costumes that will help you save big and still look fantastic. I wasn’t to sure what I wanted to dress up as. Because of my situation I didn’t have much choice except for a womens costume with a stomach showing. I just found an old black shirt, painted my favorite number on the front and back, bought sweat pants to match, got high white socks and painted a stripe up the sides. wore my black shoes and put my hair in pigtails. My nephew played ball so the bat came in handy!

My sister painted a baseball on my tummy and of course I wanted my soon to be son’s name on it so she put his name and #1. I was so happy with my costume I got lots of compliments! I made the hat out of a laundry basket covered with poster board and a sash. If you look carefully you can see tiny eye holes. I wore a button down cotton sweater on my hips- filled the arms with stuffing and added gloves in place of my hands (my real arms were in the hat!). This womens costume took maybe an hour to make! I bought a towel rack and spray painted that also.

What you need for this is 3 large poster boards, a man’s jacket that will fit around your hips (goodwill or thrift store is a great place to find it) yarn for the hair and either flesh colored fabric or a flesh colored tight fitting shirt. The easiest way to make it is to use the flesh colored shirt and draw a face on it. If you are not pregnant you can use a pillow under the shirt. To make the hat you take two of the poster boards and tape them together to make a cylinder. The third is cut up to make a brim and taped to the hat. Cut two holes for your eyes and disguise them with the center of a flower. Attach hair to either the hat or the shirt with tape or stapler. When you put the hat on your arms are actually folded up in front of your chest helping to hold the hat up. The jacket is buttoned around your hips. Yuck!
