K.H. asks from Huntington, WV

Hello, ladies- I am asking you to put on your thinking caps and offer some suggestions for adult Halloween costumes that would be particularly clever for an obviously pregnant lady! By Halloween, I will be almost 8 month's along and we always have an adult-only Halloween party with some of my friends. Nothing too risque, but a little irreverent is OK. Also, I'd like to keep the cost down. I would LOVE it if there are some suggestions for an accompanying husband's costume. So far, the only thing I can think of is going as an apple and he as a worm (not sure he would be too keen on that!!)

Thanks, ladies!

What can I do next?

When I was 6 months pregnant, a friend painted my belly like a jack o lantern, I wore a button down (with most buttons undone) that I tied behind my back and draped a piece of ivy around my shoulders. I called myself "Mother Earth." Everyone loved it.

When I was pregnant I went as a nun and my husband went as the devil. We got a lot of laughs about it. We also thought since my husband has a pretty round belly, of dressing him as a woman and me as a man.

A friend who was 8 months pregnant at Halloween went as a mummy. Get it?! It was really funny. She did spooky face makeup and wrapped herself in toilet paper. Her belly was sticking out which was awesome but you could wrap it up and it would still be cute. Have fun!

How about going as an oven with a bun in the oven. You could use a box and draw on it or put aluminum foil to look like an oven. Your husband could go as a chef.

Well, I'm pregnant, too and my 2 yr old son is into bugs and I'm thinking about being a spider, since I already am built like one, with my round abdomen and all. I thought it would be really easy to make, it could probably be done with a leotard body suit with the extra arms sewn into it. I probably won't end up doing anything, but if it worked for you, maybe you could be a black widow spider that's about to devour your spider husband.

First thing I thought of when I read your post is a cow with utters where your lil' blessing is and your hubby could go as a farmer. BTW, I did a simple google search of Pregnant Halloween costumes and they are even catorgized by creative, cute, funny etc... here is a sample of what I found. :)

Hope these give you a few ideas...

and I also found this:

For those of you who are proud of your bulging belly and want to show it off, here are some costumes that involve painting your bare belly and using it as an accessory. All of the following costumes will require you to cut a large hole in the front of your shirt that will let your beautiful belly pop out. You'll probably need help from someone else for the belly-painting (preferably a decent artist), and make sure that the paint is non-toxic before applying to your skin—no costume is worth harming yourself or your baby!

1. Classic Jack-o-Lantern—paint your belly orange with a classic smiling face. You can wear ordinary street clothes, or overalls with a flannel shirt and a straw hat.

2. Fish-Bowl—paint a fish and some bubbles on your belly, then wear a light blue or white outfit. (hubby could go as a fisherman)

3. Watermelon—paint stripes on your belly in 2 different shades of green to look like a watermelon, then dress like a farmer.(hubby could go as a farmer too)

4. Bun in the Oven—paint a loaf of bread on your belly and dress like a chef. (hubby could go as a chief chef or table)

5. Peek-a-Boo—if you know a really good artist, you could have them paint your belly to look like your baby is peeking out. Ordinary street clothes would work fine with this costume.

6. Crystal Ball—paint your belly white or light blue, and dress like a gypsy. (traveling salesman)

7. Pea Pod—paint your belly green, then wear all green and cut a vertical slit in your shirt to let your belly show through. (hubby could be a farmer)

8. Basketball—paint your belly orange with black stripes, and dress like a basketball player. (your hubby could be a referee)

Baseball player-your belly is the baseball and hubby could be a bat... look here for more info:

My girlfriend went as a magic 8 ball when she was very pregnant. She used a black sweatshirt (a tshirt would work too if its warm out) and cut a hole in the belly part. The she used blue tinted saran wrap in the hole and glued a piece of paper behind the saran wrap with a funny 8 ball saying. (reply hazy, my sources tell me...) The she painted a white circle with a black 8 in it on the back of the shirt. She just wore black pants with it. Im not sure about your hubby though. Maybe another fun toy. Barrel o monkeys, or a rubiks cube. A big box with painted squares would work good for that. Anyways, just an idea for you! Hope you guys have a blast with it and Congrats!!

When I was pregnant, I went as a magic 8 ball. I wasn't keen on painting my belly, so I made a shirt. I just got a yard of white fabric from the store and a permanent marker. I took a long-sleeved black shirt and pinned a white cicle of fabric on my belly with an eight drawn on it.Then I cut out several triangles with the typical responses ("sources say no" "try again later" "It is certain" etc) and placed those on the back of the shirt. I wore black pants with it to work and I got a lot of laughs! Your husband could always go as a pool cue!

I also thought of your belly being a pumpkin. Perhaps you could be a scarecrow holding your "pumpkin"? Or have a bunch of harvest foods (corn/stalks, wheat-stalks, zucchini, squash & other gourds)all over your body (made from paint, felt, or fabric). Could look pretty cute.

Somebody below suggested a baseball, with your husband as a bat; what about your bump being a basketball, you being a basketball player, and your husband as the goal?

You could be a "pod" and the baby can be the "pea" in the pod. LOL
Or, maybe you could dress like a chef and your baby can be the "bun in your oven". You could get a plain black shirt and use fabric paint to draw a hot dog bun or something on your belly. LOL

I can't think of an accompanying costume right now but you might think of something to go with it , but it would be cute if you could find a costume or have someone make you one that looks like you are holding a pumpkin in front of your belly, like maybe a headless pumpkin man/women, as your belly would be the pumpkin.
I thought that would be cute. Maybe your husband could go as a horse?LOL

Actually, my brother did something funny several years ago. He went as a barefoot and pregnant woman. You and your husband could switch roles- Your husband could dress up as the pregnant woman- house robe, wig with curlers, pillow belly, etc. He could even black out a tooth for added humor. And you could be the husband- "beer gut", white tank top, blue jeans, john deer cap, fake mustache, etc. Not sure if your hubby would go for this, but it would be a hoot and inexpensive to get together. My brother won two costume competitions in the same night with his get-up. :)

I was 8 months along with I was pregnant, and I went as "Rizzo" from Grease. My husband was Kanicky. The outfit was so easy. I had on black leggings and I found a pink coat at the thrift store and ironed on "Rizzo" and "Pink Ladies". I think I still have it if you want it! I know at the end of the movie she found out she really wasn't pregnant, but it was a fun costume anyway.

I don't know if it would be too irreverent for you, but I went to a costume party a few years ago and one of the girls was pregnant. She had on a T-shirt with an alien face right on the front of her belly and had taken apart a doll and attached the arms and legs so they looked like they were coming right through her skin and T-shirt and had ringed them with red paint (blood). It was slightly gross, but extremely inventive and funny. She even told a story about being abducted and now was having an aliens baby. Your husband could go as the alien.

Something really easy and low cost is to wear all black, like sweats or other work out clothes and simply pin empty candy wrappers with small safety pins all over your clothes. Use popcorn bags, popcorn, and old movie stubs as well. You can be the Floor of a Movie Theater! Your hubby can be a theater usher with a flashlight and/or small broom and dustpan.
Happy Halloween!

You could be a pumpkin, or a cue ball for a pool game, you could even choose something square and have a box around your belly. I saw a cute cupcake for kids in the Pottery Barn kids catalog, he could be a fork or a glass of milk! You could be a pregnant nun and he could be a priest. No, I don't think it is anti religious if you don't intentionally do it for that reason....you could be a pregnant man and your husband could be the wife....silly ideas but better than him being a worm! ha ha
