DIY Halloween costumes for pregnant women that you’ll actually want to wear in public

Being pregnant on Halloween is pretty awesome. The air is crisp, there’s lots of good horror movies to binge watch and no one bats an eye if you buy candy in bulk (even if you end up eating most of it yourself). But if you’re a mom-to-be who loves getting dressed up on Halloween, choosing the right costume can be tricky. Do you go super obvious, like painting your stomach as a pumpkin? Or do the overplayed gory zombie baby coming out of the shirt thing? If you’re expecting and can’t nail down on a costume game plan, don’t panic. Here’s some DIY Halloween costume ideas for pregnant women that are almost enough to make us wish we were pregnant again.

Because no one will dare to touch your belly without permission when it’s decked out like the Death Star.

For the mom-to-be who’s really craving avocados during her pregnancy.

Extra awesome points if you sing the song all night.

The perfect outfit for when your black maternity dress is the only thing that still fits, and you don’t even want to go to this stupid party anyway.

Raise your hand if you want to find out where this office is and apply to work there immediately.

For the family that is committed to the group costume, this Willy Wonka idea is perfection.

Congratulations, you just won Halloween.

Want to blow your firstborn’s mind and get them to warm up to the idea of a sibling at the same time? Turn your baby bump into a Ninja Turtle.

Forget dressing babies as Winnie the Pooh, it looks just as cute with a baby bump.

Because Castaway is a modern classic, Tom Hanks is amazing, and being pregnant makes you sweat like a beast, so this way you’ll actually stay cool while surrounded by drunk people.
