Halloween Costumes

It's October and Halloween costumes and parties are coming soon!  Are you going to be dressing up? Have any ideas for fun costumes that accommodate or show off the bump?

Re: Halloween Costumes

  • I had a bump at Halloween last pregnancy (8.5 months along) and dressed up as a clown. It was really fun. Sorry for the close crop, it was a group shot.

    We have a Halloween party next weekend at 20 weeks and I'm not sure what to dress up as yet. I also dress up with my kids to take them trick or treating, so whatever I go with has to work at 24 weeks, also.

  • I've looked and looked and now planning to pull this off with DH for our Halloween party!
    This is awesome!

    This is what I am doing too. My son is dressing like Mario. I am trying to get my husband into the act to, but he is being lame about it.

  • @lainikins I think DH might play along, but he also has a blow up T-Rex costume that he hasn't gotten to use yet.  Getting DS to dress up with me might work better!

  • @3plus1equals4, my son wanted me to be Princess Peach. I am not going to be Pregnant Princess Peach while he is Mario. Not happening. He was ok with this solution.

  • DD1 will be a tornado. DD2 will be a cow. I will be a house. DH will be on a hunting trip and won’t be home until that evening. We only do the trick or treating the business district of our town during the afternoon.

  • I'm lazy so I'm going for the Wednesday Adams "I'm a homicidal maniac.  They look like everyone else" costume aka I'll be wearing normal clothes

    I will probably do this again for work. I work at a school and the kids loved it last time I was pregnant. Plus I still have the shirt and some black felt
    This is what I'm doing! Except I bought my shirt off of amazon.

  • We might so Winnie the Pooh... Me as Pooh with the big belly, DH as Tigger and DD would be Piglet.

    I love this one! I've done a pretty good job of hiding my bump from my students. 1 or 2 might have their suspicions, but otherwise I think they're pretty oblivious (they're at that age...) I'm going to get the shirt on Amazon and wear it as my "coming out" costume at school.

  • I’ll probably end up doing the pumpkin one too. DH is a neuroscience PhD student right now and really wanted to make DS (15mo) a scientist and have me and DH be lab mice...but we’re planning to go to Halloween at the zoo and they might not appreciate the reference to animal testing, eep. DH is pretty used to it since it’s his job so I had to point out the potential backlash to his costume idea...

  • @winnie1122 that's a really cute idea though! But I would feel awkward at a zoo. That sounds like a lot of fun.

    As the wife of a scientist, I can totally appreciate this costume, but I understand what you mean about the zoo peeps not seeing the humor ;)

  • On the flip side zoo people probably feed mice to snakes, so maybe they can’t be mad? Lol

    These are all so cute!! @karcerplus3 I love the Sneetches idea :D 

    I was pregnant during Halloween last time, and totally intended to dress up... but ended up celebrating by eating an entire bag of Reeces PB Cups instead. I don't know if I'll have time to put together a costume this year. DD is going to be a "scary monster", and I plan to sew that one. I like the idea of the pumpkin shirt, that's cute and I could get away with wearing it to work.

    My dream family costume is Princess Buttercup, Westley, and the kids as ROUSes :D Perhaps next year...

  • I'm not sure what I'll do. Probably just a shirt. H is going to wear his Deadpool jacket and mask. Dd1 is going to wear a dinosaur jumpsuit and dd2 an owl jumpsuit. Ds2 is going to be a stormtrooper and dd3 chose a Wonder Woman costume,
    G 12.04 | E 11.06 | D 11.08  | H 12.09 | R 11.14 | Expecting #6 2.16.18.



  • DD is going to be Boo from Monster's Inc and I'll be Mike (painting a big eyeball on a green shirt) and DH will be Sully (painting purple spots on a blue shirt).  Overall a cheap year on costumes but DD makes the cutest Boo so we had to lol.

  • @ahoneycutt12 We did something kind of similar for halloween last year. I wasn't pregnant at the time but...I found an adult Sully pajama onesie to match the Mike costume my son picked out (his room is Monster's Inc. themed) and then my sister came over dressed as boo and we took him around the neighborhood. I was so sad my husband was working 2 hours away and ended up missing trick or treating otherwise he was going to dress up as Roz haha this year, we haven't taken DS to look for a costume yet but I found a really cute/seemingly warm lion costume I'm going to try to magically persuade him to like in the store. If he does, then my husband and I both have lion pajama onesies and we can be a 'lion pack' haha

    @amb929 oh that would be so cute!  DD just turned 2 so I'm still enjoying the she wears whatever I put on her stage of Halloween costumes lol

  • @ahoneycutt12 when did your DD turn 2? My DS turned 2 in June and he has A LOT of opinions. He mostly lets us dress him but not for bed. His pajamas are the gentleman's choice, always.  :D We passed the costume section of Babies R Us recently and he pointed at the Mike costume he wore last year. I would just re-use if we could squeeze him into it lol
    Enjoy the fact that she lets you dress her for all long as you can! I hear little girls can be become rather opinionated on that matter  :)
  • @amb929 Her birthday was Sept 29th.  She definitely has her I won't wear that kind of days and I know better than to put anything with big bows or those super frilly pants because that is just asking for a toddler tantrum
