Fall is upon us once again, which means that it is almost time to choose your Halloween costume! If you are pregnant, you may wonder about the best way to incorporate your bump into your holiday festivities. Reusing costumes from the past will not work, so it may be time to look for something new. There are many fun choices out there for Halloween costumes for pregnant moms. Check out our list below for some inspiration.
50 Halloween Costumes for Pregnant Moms
1. Gumball Machine
The gumball machine’s shape lends itself well to the outline of your growing belly. All you need is a white shirt, red skirt, and some pom poms or felt circles of all colors. Just glue the gumballs onto the belly of your white shirt, and you are all set. This one is fun and colorful.
The sheer size of an avocado pit lends itself well to a pregnant mama’s costume. All you need to do is draw the shape of an avocado on a large piece of presentation paper or cardboard. Cut holes for your head and belly, then paint the avocado flesh with shades of green. Make sure to add straps to put your arms through and pair them with a brown shirt to depict the pit color accurately. This DIY post will tell you all you need to know. Bam! Guacamole, anyone?

If you love the sexy cat look for Halloween, you do not need to give it up this year. This costume lets you be a leopard, even while pregnant. This comfy leopard-print dress even comes with kitty ears to complete your cat look. Who said pregnant still can’t be sexy? This dress is a showstopper.
4. Mike from Monsters, Inc.
When I was pregnant with my second, I had a Mike maternity shirt. It was green with his giant eyeball on my belly and a smile. My oldest loved whenever I wore this shirt. It also lends an idea for your Halloween costume. You can go as Mike from Monsters Inc. If you can’t find a shirt like the one I had, you can always get a green maternity shirt and make your own monster face to put on it.

For Star Wars fans out there, this maternity shirt lets you go as the Death Star. The image is of high quality and comes printed on a comfy black shirt to give the full effect.

If you dig the black cat look, but a sexy cat is out this year, you could improvise. All you need to do is pair your black maternity shirt with a ball of yarn to your baby bump. Let some of it hang down, but be sure that it isn’t a trip hazard. Add some black leggings, kitty ears, and a tail, and you are all set to go! By changing up your black cat costume, you will be comfy as you partake of the Halloween festivities.
