A pregnant belly can be a great Halloween accessory! We’ve put together this huge list of pregnant Halloween costumes. A lot of them also work as couples costumes! Many can be put together with items you have around your house or only cost a few dollars. If you DO have to buy something for your costume, hit a few garage sales in the next few weeks and maybe you’ll find it for sale for less. Thanks to all the readers who shared their great dress up ideas!
1. What came first: Chicken or EGG? Husband can be chicken, dress in all white, yellow party hat for beak, and red glove for comb. You’re the egg!!! dress all white, and paint belly Yellow for the yolk. Thanks, Christine!
2. “Miss Conceived.” Wear an old prom dress, tiara and sash reading “Miss Conceived”. Husband goes in a suit as pageant announcer with microphone. Thanks, Karen!
3. Adam and Eve. All you need to do is wear something green get some flowers from the craft store for your hair and leafs to cover you and get an apple maybe a plastic snake won’t cost more than a few bucks for flowers and 99cents for snake and add some leafs to hubby. Thanks Tracy!
4. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. Dress up like the classic toys. Make these costumes yourself. Use brown-colored fleece or felt to make the body, and colored felt or fleece to make the rest of the parts. Use hook-and-loop fasteners on each piece so friends can put you together and swap your parts. Thanks Claudia!
5. Mummy to Be. Wrap long, thing strips of cloth (cut up an old sheet) over an outfit of white or gray sweatpants. Apply make up accordingly! Thanks, Gwen!
6. Plug and socket. Have a cord coming out near your belly button area or you can be the plug and baby is the socket. Wear a black jumpsuit of overalls easy to find. Make a pattern or what a outlet looks like and layer it over the jumpsuit. I think you can buy a outfit online if you do not want to make one. Thanks, Mikelle!
7. Baby Zombie. We are also having a zombie party and my unborn child will be a baby zombie coming out of my belly. It’s probably not my most tasteful costume but I think it’s kind of funny. Thanks, Sarah!
8. Housewife and milkman. I’ve also seen some costumes where the woman dresses as a preg 60’s housewife and the man dresses as the milkman.
9. Pregnant cat. I’m pregnant, due Dec and Im going to be a black pregnant cat… I want to be able to play with the makeup and Im gonna get the cat ears & tail and wear black and attach two rows of nipples on the front:) Thanks Chasidy!
10. A sneetches couple. All yellow outfits, add some yellow feathers can get cheap if you tear up yellow boa!!! But you will be a sneetch with a star on the belly.. Paint a STAR on the belly.. Thanks Christine!
11. Clothes line. One year, my friend and I went as trees with a clothesline in between with little clothes hanging from tiny clothespins. We had fun, but after awhile wanted to “cut the strings” and separate so as not to be twins. Thanks Sunnymay!
13. Football player and cheerleader. I had a friend who was pregnant at Halloween a few years ago, and her husband suggested they go as a football player and a cheerleader in trouble. It was hilarious, and everyone loved their costumes. Thanks Sarah!
14. Bag of jelly beans. Use a clear trash bag, cut out holes for arms and legs, slip it on and then blow up balloons (jelly beans) to fill it up. Add a tag that says Jelly beans 15 cents and a ribbon around your neck. My SIL did this years ago… Thanks Theresa!
15. Bearded lady. Put on a fake beard…instantly transform yourself into a bearded woman (like they used to have at the circus). Being a bearded pregnant woman would make it even funnier without any extra effort (or expense). Thanks Ruth!
16. Sea horse and a fishing pole! Thanks Kamita!
17. Egg and sperm. Thanks Kamita!
18. Little red riding hood and the wolf. Thanks Kamita!
19. Plumber. Try being a pregnant plumber, with low-hanging jeans, a work shirt, a baseball hat and a fake mustache made out of construction paper. Thanks Claudia!
20. Gypsy With Crystal Ball. Rub the belly/crystal ball and predict whether it will be a boy or a girl. Wear a long, flowing, gypsy-like skirt and a white or black plain shirt. Use cloth paint to draw a crystal ball over the belly. If the shirt is white, paint a black circle on top of a little stand. If the shirt is black, paint a white circle on top of a stand and fill it in with white paint. Get creative with the crystal ball. Jazz up the outfit with flowing scarves, a lot of jewelry and makeup and a head scarf. Thanks Claudia!
21. Man With Beer Belly. Poke some fun at the opposite sex by turning a baby belly into a beer belly. Wear loose-fitting jeans, men’s jeans if possible, and a stained old T-shirt. Wear a men’s cap and draw in a little five o’clock shadow with a makeup pencil or body paint. Carry around an empty beer bottle or can and shove a remote control in the back pocket for good measure. Just don’t actually drink any beer. Thanks Claudia!
22. Pregnant Nun and Priest. Be scandalous and dress up like a pregnant nun with her oh-so-friendly priest. Nun costumes are loose and comfortable, so your figure will fit it well. For the priest costume, wear black pants and a long-sleeved, collared black shirt or a long-sleeved, black gown with a collar. Insert a piece of white card stock in the collar. Wear a large cross necklace, if you’d like. Thanks Claudia!
23. Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Dress up like Tweedledee and Tweedledum from “Alice in Wonderland.” These round twins are over-the-top and eccentric. Make a costume out of silly, oversized overalls and a Hula-hoop to create the perfect, round waistline. Decide whose personality better suits “Dum” versus “Dee.” Write your Dee and Dum names on your hats. Thanks Claudia!
24. Sumo Wrestlers. Rent sumo wrestler costumes. You two will be the hit of the party in your big costumes, and you’ll have built-in comfort when sitting with all that padding.Thanks Claudia!
25. Pumpkin. I got an orange maternity top and used felt to cut out eyes, nose and mouth. Then, I used two sided tape to attach the felt to the shirt. Yes, admittedly it didn’t stick that well. I guess you could try sewing it or using velcro to keep it attached better. I liked the idea that I could continue to wear the shirt after halloween, too. You could come up with your own variations and improvements on the idea. Thanks, Michele!
26. Juno and Paulie. (From the movie “Juno.”) For Juno, wear an orange and white striped shirt, jeans, a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, and Converse or a similar style of sneakers. Wear your hair in a ponytail and carry a giant jug of Sunny D or a giant Slurpee or Big Gulp cup. For Paulie, you need a burgundy T-shirt, yellow shorts, yellow wristbands and a yellow headband. Add tube socks with yellow stripes and a pair of running shoes. If one of you is artistic enough to pull it off, paint the “Dancing Condors” logo from the movie onto the shirt with yellow fabric paint. Thanks, N. Davis and Mvbg.
27. Fried egg and bacon. Your bump would be the yellow and be circled with white poster board…while your husband could have long cardboard enhanced with brown paint with a face cutout. you both could wear chef hats and carry flippers…sounds quick and easy to me!!! Thanks, Margaret!
28. Basketball hoop and player. Paint your belly to look like a basketball, you dress like a pole and hoop. Have hubby dress as a basketball player. Thanks Robyn!
29. Sauce and chef. You can go as a jar of Prego Spaghetti sauce and he goes as an italian chef. I cant wait to be preggo for halloween so i can do this idea! Maybe next year! Thanks, Ashley!
30. Ultrasound. You could go as an ultrasound machine with the picture of your baby taped to your belly…it would be the baby’s first Halloween too! Thanks, Michelle!
31. Toddler & Tiara in training. Fashion a tiara out of a silver belt and silver cardboard with some doodads. Put it around your waist with a tag that reads “Toddler & Tiara in Training.” (You’ve seen Toddlers & Tiaras, right?) Your husband can go as the dad. He probably already has the costume for that Thanks, Kelly!
32. Giant Legos. Make your costume out of spray painted cardboard boxes & plastic cups!! Thanks, Brandy!
33. Cat and fish bowl. A friend of mine did this when she was pregnant, and it was adorable! Dress in all black. Get black cat ears and a tail from the store, or make your own using black fabric. Draw a cat nose and whiskers on your face with black eyeliner. Tie up the black shirt or cut a hole in it so your belly is showing. Paint your belly to look like a fishbowl (this is the part that really makes the costume cute and unique!). Thanks, N. Davis!
34. Mother Nature and Father Time. Mother Nature, make a wreath of ivy and fake flowers (super cheap from the $ Tree) to wear on your head. On top, wear a green shirt tied up or with a hole cut out so your baby bump will show. Paint your belly blue and green to look like the Earth (if you’re not artistic, there are lots of websites you can download a free Earth stencil from!). Finish with a long brown or green peasant skirt (I always see these at Goodwill and thrift stores) and sandals. For Father Time, wear a long bathrobe in a neutral color like white, brown or black, tied at the waste with a length of rope. Draw “wrinkles” at the corners of eyes with eyeliner, and use flour or baby powder to make hair look white. Add a white beard (I’ve seen these for cheap at places like Big Lots and Walgreens, maybe even the 99 cent store or $ Tree would have something that would work). Accessorize with lots of different kinds of clocks and watches (especially pocket watches, hourglass timers from board games and the old-fashioned twin bell alarm clocks) – they can be worn hanging from a necklace, pinned onto the robe, etc. Complete the costume with sandals and a cane or walking stick (you could even use a really large stick from your yard for this!). Thanks, N. Davis!
35. Skeleton family. All you need is black sweats for you and your hubby and some fabric paint for the bones! Dont leave out the sweet baby… paint a skeleton baby curled up in the fetal position on the stomach of your shirt and Im sure everyone will love it! Plus plain black sweats are really cheap and comfortable… since you will be expecting in January you will want to stay warm and comfy! Hope this helps!!! Thanks, Gloria and Liz!
36. Bun in the oven and Baker. Really easy to do:1. Go to Walmart or even a Dollar store. Buy 2 matching aprons and oven mitts (I recommend a solid color like blue, green, red, etc). We did a light blue because we had a boy.2. Then go to Party City and buy 2 chef’s hats…they had cheap paper ones.3. Go online find a picture of an oven with a loaf of bread in it. I think I found a picture of an oven and then one of bread and used the Paint program (on most all PCs) to merge them together. I labeled the apron across my chest as “Bun in the Oven” (I used packing tape) and put the oven/bun picture on the belly area. Then across my hubby’s apron “The Bunmaker”). You could even have your hubby carry around a loaf of French bread. I think I spent $15-18 total for all this, maybe even less than that. People at work got a kick out of it. Thanks, Holly and Larissa!
37. Hippies. We went as hippies…we used store bought costumes. Mine consisted of pants and a lime green tube top and vest so my belly was completely exposed. Everyone that didn’t know I was PG kept coming up to us and poking at my tummy exclaiming how cool and real our “love child” looked. Even after I told them there really was a baby in there, most still didn’t believe it was real. Thanks, Stephanie!
