Halloween Costumes for Pregnant Women

Updated on August 24, 2014

Pregnancy doesn't mean you are limited to choices for Halloween costumes. It just allows you to get more creative and have fun. In fact, pregnancy gives you costume choices that others wouldn't be able to pull off. Some costumes are better when given a homemade touch, but if you don't have the time to assemble an outfit you can always purchase a maternity costume.

Paint Your Belly

Many pregnant women choose to dress up their future arrival by painting their belly. Some ideas are pumpkin or jack-o-lantern, the world, basketball, a fish bowl, a monkey, child trying to get out, and a baby in the womb. The artistic possibilities are endless.

Mummy to Be

Take an old white sheet, cut into strips, and soak it overnight in strong tea. Let the strip dry completely and wrap your body with them. You can use brown, gray, and black face make up to look mummified beneath the costume.


Buy a bear costume and cut out the belly. You can then paint your belly with your favorite Carebear design.

Bun in the Oven

Dress up as an oven with a "bun" inside. This is a cute play on words. Even the father of the child could dress up as the baker. Although you can buy the costume, you can also make your own version by using a cardboard box, aluminum foil, etc. Your belly becomes the bun.

Gumball Machine

This is a cute costume. Simply take a clear garbage bag and fill will small, multicolored balloons. You can wear a red skirt or red pants along with a red ball cap. You can cut out a spot in the bottom of the garbage bag to fit your head through. Then cut out holes for your arms to fit through. After putting on the bag and filling it with balloons, use the drawstring of the garbage bag to pull it tight to keep the balloons from falling out.

Zombie Baby

If you are looking for a shock factor this Halloween, consider creating a zombie baby. It isn't difficult to assemble and you are sure to get a few double takes. All you need is a doll that you can cut the face and arms off, some latex, paint, an old t-shirt, and some fake blood. For added affect the mom-to-be can also be a zombie herself using latex, paint, and fake blood as well.

Trick-or-treating From the Womb

This is similar to the zombie baby creation. Simply attach baby doll arms to a t-shirt, add some fake blood, and a small trick-or-treating bag or bucket. You can glue the arms to a base made of fabric, poster board, or whatever else would be lightweight but sturdy enough to support the weight of the arms.

Then cut two small holes in the shirt and using fabric glue, glue the base to the shirt. Then you can use fake blood for an added affect.

Finally, add a small trick-or-treating bag or bucket. You can glue the bag or bucket to the arms so you do not have to worry about it dropping and having to pick it up. If you prefer the bag method, it can be handmade out of felt and decorated with Halloween flair.

Take a cardboard box, cut out the top and bottom, and paint it to look like a brick wall. Attach suspenders to it. Next, make a pair of legs to lay over the brick wall.
