21 Pregnancy Halloween Costumes for Growing Bellies

Bump
Looking for an easy maternity Halloween look for October 31? Consider one of these clever DIY pregnancy costumes designed specifically for your bump.

Marsupial Mama

Why we love it: This cute and creative costume idea is doubly as darling when you pair up with a pregnant pal!

-- Idea via Coolest Homemade Costumes

Baby Mutant Ninja Turtle

Why we love it: Already got a little one who loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? This is how to win his heart on Halloween. Pizza (the preferred food of the TMNTs) not required—but definitely encouraged.

-- Idea via Pinterest

Bubble Gum Bump

Why we love it: Put the bubble in bubble gum with this gumball machine Halloween costume, which is cute for kids, but would also show off a burgeoning baby belly.

-- Idea via 'A Casarella

No Bother Here

Why we love it: This adorable Winnie the Pooh-inspired costume is easy to assemble, and comes with a built-in idea for a partner who is about as enthusiastic about Halloween as Eeyore is about, well, anything. A polo shirt and shorts and voila: Christopher Robin!

Pitcher's Mound

Why we love it: Not only is this baseball belly a total home run in adorableness, but it's an easy win, too. This mama pulled it together last minute using things from around her house!

-- Idea via Ashley at From Dahlias to Doxies

Beach Babe

Why We Love It: You affectionately call it your beach ball, so go with it! If you're not up for baring all, pair a bikini top or tank with a long, thigh-covering sarong.

Pregnant Potato

Why we love it: A Mrs. Potato Head costume is the perfect way to cover your bump this Halloween; especially if you aren't ready to reveal your pregnancy. Baby belly not included!

I Carried a Watermelon

Why We Love It: Does pregnancy have you feeling like you're lugging around a melon? Turn that thought into reality with this delicious, is-that-what-I-think-it-is costume.

-- Submitted by Sarah S. of Amanda, Ohio

Troll-or-Treat

Why we love it: You won't have to troll for fun in this costume. Bonus: You can rub your baby bump for good luck!

Bump on Board

Why We Love It: Yep, there's a bump in the road -- yours! Pair this funny painted street sign with a construction hat and traffic flags to complete the costume. Wear a button-down if you want more back and side coverage.

Nesting for Real

Why we love it: The bird sitting in a nest costume idea for moms-to-be gives an entirely new meaning to the term "nesting" and would be easy to DIY. One thing is for sure: this getup would win any costume contest, hands, er wings, down.

-- Idea via Costume Works

World Peace

Why We Love It: Accessorize your peace bump with hippie tie dye and bell bottoms.

Mother of Pearl

Why We Love It: This inspired and gorgeous costume is certainly an original use of your bump.

-- Submitted by Holly N.M. of Jacksonville Beach, Florida

 

Basketball Star

Why We Love It: Throw on an athletic-looking top and shorts, and voila -- you're a WNBA player. Conveniently, the basketball is already included.

-- Submitted by Jessica B. of Monroeville, Pennsylvania

Easter Egg

Why We Love It: You'll have had that bambino by Easter but you can still take inspiration from painted eggs.

Hello World!

Why We Love It: Your world will revolve around that baby of yours, so why not give everyone a preview of coming attractions. Not-so-artistic mamas can print out a globe map, cut out the continent shapes and use as stencils.

Hawaiian Holiday

Why We Love It: Not so good with a paintbrush? This hula girl costume is paint-free, and the supplies are easily found at party supply stores. Clearly, this get-up is best for warmer climates (grass skirts are not known for their warmth).
