5 adorable maternity Halloween costumes

One of the best things about being pregnant in October is getting to dress up your bump for Halloween.

Although it can be hard to figure out what to wear even when you’re not pregnant, don’t let that deter you from showing off your creativity this spooky season. After all, your bump is your best accessory when it comes to donning a costume.

If your growing belly is in need of a Halloween ensemble, here are 5 pregnancy costumes that are both clever and comfortable. 

1. Skeleton Costume

You can’t go wrong with a fun twist on a classic costume. This skeleton pregnancy costume lets you show off your little one’s X-ray with a fun mini-me skeleton graphic over the bump. You can purchase this comfy set almost anywhere they sell pregnancy clothes, but its relatively simple design makes it an easy DIY. All you need is a black long-sleeve shirt, black pants, and white fabric for both you and your tiny skeleton’s bones. 

2. Wilma Flintstone Pregnancy Costume

For the modern Stone Age expectant parent, Wilma Flintstone is a go-to costume option. A red wig, white dress, and a giant strand of pearls are all you need to look like the read-headed matriarch from back when she was expecting her own precious, prehistoric cave baby, Pebbles. 

3. Gumball Machine Pregnancy Costume

This pregnancy gumball machine costume is a great way to show off your creativity, as well as a clever reference for how the later stages of pregnancy can leave you feeling like you’re bursting at the seams. This witty DIY costume involves gluing or sewing a bunch of colorful fabric circles on a white t-shirt. A simple red beanie can work as the top of the gumball machine, while a red tutu or piece of tulle over black leggings is a fun option for its base. A piece of paper labeled 25 cents for the gumball machine’s slot is a delightful final finishing touch.

4. Winnie The Pooh Pregnancy Costume

Winnie the Pooh is one of the easiest costumes to recreate, especially when you’ve already got the belly. Since you’re all set when it comes to Pooh Bear’s tummy, all you have to do is find the right colors for this look to really come together. The articles of clothing themselves aren’t as important as long as they’re comfortable and match the color scheme. For her Winnie the Pooh costume, this pregnant TikToker layers a cherry-red t-shirt with Pooh written in yellow over a long mustard button-down knit dress. She finishes the look with a pair of knee-high brown boots and cute homemade yellow ears. 

5. Kool-Aid Man Pregnancy Costume

Easy? Comfy? Clever? Oh yeah! If you’re an expectant parent looking to win Halloween this year, look no further than this homemade costume featuring your bump as the Kool-Aid man bursting through a brick wall. To make this costume, all you need is a red t-shirt with the Kool-Aid man’s face drawn over your bump and two cardboard brick walls with holes for each arm to go through. A paper “Oh Yeah!” speech bubble is a fun final detail.
