Halloween Costume 20151. Zombie Fetus

If you’ve been complaining lately that the baby has taken over your body, then what better way to celebrate than with a zombie bump!

Materials needed: T-shirt/Top, Fake Blood, and a creepy baby doll

Difficulty level: Easy

2. Skeleton Family21 Genius And Strange Pregnancy Halloween Costumes.:

What’s more adorable than a family of skeletons? Even better if it’s how you’re announcing your pregnancy! And I love how the guy has his own version. You could get kids in on the act with whatever they like to eat on their tummies.

If you didn’t want to paint on a t-shirt, you could make the bones out of paper/plastic and pin them on (fold in half before you cut them out to get identical pairs/symmetrical bones). Creating a skeleton looks tricky, but is surprisingly easy.

Materials needed: T-shirt/Top, white paint/paper or plastic

Difficulty level: Pretty Easy

But if you don’t mind, and especially if you have a chap who can pull off ‘bedraggled shipwreck survivor’ this is a nice easy one.

Materials needed: White T-shirt/Top, Brown Paper, Headband, Red Fabric Paint or Marker Pen.

Whatever you choose, whatever your time or budgetary constraints, you can totally pull off a great costume when pregnant, you most certainly don’t have to fade into the background or go as a homicidal maniac.
