Maternity Costumes for Expecting Mummies

October 5, 2017

Halloween is pretty much the best. Not only do you have access to all the candy you could ever want, but you can also dress up as (pretty much) anything you want. If you’re pregnant, it adds even more fun to the mix. Below are some great maternity costumes for expecting mummies. (See what I did there?)

The Classics

1. Bun in the oven
You can actually buy a bun in the oven costume here or here, though there is plenty of DIY potential to be had.

2. Skeleton/X-ray mom and baby
Maybe it’s morbid to say that this is super cute, maybe it’s totally appropriate? At any rate, you can find a tee shirt or full-length iron-on skeleton costume that highlights your baby-to-be.

3. Prego
Because it’s punny, and totally on-the-nose. And also, you’re totally prego.

4. Juno (and Bleeker)
This is a fun costume that works well if you like to coordinate costumes with your partner. You can actually buy the set here, or use existing clothing in your wardrobe to make it even easier to pull together.

5. Escaping baby
Yes, you can actually buy a version of this costume here, but it would also be a fun DIY project. If you like to skew to the creepy side of Halloween, try adding a little fake blood to up the shock factor.

6. Wrecking ball
If you don’t understand the reference, this is probably not the costume for you. But if you do, it still plays. Especially if it’s executed well. Also, there’s an actual tutorial on how to create this costume. You’re welcome.

Check out the video tutorial here.

7. Disco Ball
If you want a DIY costume with a whole lot of potential (and that could be super comfortable), this costume idea is for you. It has the potential to exude velvety, disco-y goodness. Bedazzling your belly could also be really enjoyable.

8. E.T. and Elliot
You’re going to definitely get bonus points for creativity if you rock this costume at your work party or other Halloween gatherings. It’s an award-winner for sure.
