Fall is upon us again, so it is almost time to choose your Halloween costume! If you are pregnant, you may wonder how to incorporate your bump into your holiday festivities. Reusing costumes from the past will likely not work, so it may be time to look for something new. There are many fun choices out there for Halloween costumes for pregnant women.
Halloween Costumes for Pregnant Women
Looking for cute and amusing Halloween costumes that are specially designed for pregnant women? This collection of costumes will make you stand out from the crowd!
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, a 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. 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?
3. Mike From Monsters, Inc.
I had a Mike maternity shirt when I was pregnant with my second. 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 a monster face to put on it.
4. The Death Star
For Star Wars fans out there, this maternity shirt lets you go as the Death Star. The image on this shirt is of high quality and comes printed on a comfy black shirt to give the full effect. Plus, you have the option to make this shirt long-sleeved or short-sleeved.
5. Cat With Yarn Ball
You could improvise if you dig the black cat look, but a sexy cat is out this year. All you need to do is pair your black maternity shirt with a ball of yarn attached 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 in the Halloween festivities.
6. The Grinch
For some real laughs, dress up as the Grinch who stole Christmas! Get some green tights or leggings and a green leotard, and cover your shoes, neck, and wrists with faux green fur. Take it over the top by painting your hair and face. You’re sure to be the life of the Halloween party!
7. Sexy Bunny
Even though you’re pregnant, it doesn’t mean you have to give up being sexy! Check out this sexy bunny costume in this form-fitting pink dress. One of the best things is that you can remove the accessories and wear the dress by itself after Halloween.
Show off your “babe-o’-lantern” in this Jack-O’-Lantern Maternity Halloween Dress. This is a fun, adorable twist on a classic costume, and it’ll look great in pictures. Even better, in soft and breathable fabric, you’ll be comfortable wearing this dress all day and night! The other option is getting an orange maternity shirt and cutting out a jack-o’-lantern face to tape to your belly.
9. Alvin and the Chipmunks
This is a great and easy DIY Halloween costume. The expecting mama can dress up as Theodore, Dad can be Simon, and your older child can be Alvin! This is actually what our Editor-in-Chief dressed up with her family when she was pregnant with her second. She bought different colored sweater shirts for the three of them, some fake round glasses for Simon, and cut out some yellow felt to make an “A” on Alvin’s sweatshirt. Such a great idea!
10. Kool-Aid Man
Well, this is too Kool. 😉 Check out this awesome DIY Halloween costume this couple made. All you need is a red shirt, a fabric marker to draw on the face, and some cardboard and markers for the sign and brick wall. You can really make an entrance with this costume!
11. Construction Worker
You’ll need a hard hat, a construction vest, a white shirt, and some comfy jeans for this costume. Add a “Bump Ahead” sticker to your baby bump, and you’re ready! This also makes a great couples costume, as your hubby can dress up as a construction worker too!
Here’s another great DIY Halloween costume for pregnant mamas! E.T. is a classic.

This idea is too clever!
13. Care Bear
How adorable is this costume?! We all know each Care Bear has a cute design on their belly representing their personality and power. Choose your favorite Care Bear and design your own look! This mama did a fantastic job making her own Grumpy Bear costume.
14. Magic 8 Ball
Another great way to keep yourself comfy is by going as a Magic 8 Ball. Pair your black leggings with a black shirt. Then, add a white circle with a black 8 to your belly. If you double up on the shirts, you could also hide an answer on the second shirt, such as “ask again later,” as people will undoubtedly ask you questions!
15. Baby Captain America Escape

19. Disco Ball
Using your belly as a disco ball is another great way to incorporate your bump into your Halloween costume.
