Homemade Pregnancy Halloween Costume Ideas

1. Gumball Machine Costume 

When it comes to DIY Halloween costumes, this one is a winner and best of all it’s easy to make. All you need is a pair of black leggings, a white shirt, and a red skirt. Make a gumball machine out of felt and colorful pom-poms and attach it to the rest of the outfit and you’re good to go!

2. Avocado Costume 

Avocado costumes are also a popular favorite at the moment. You can use your baby belly as the avocado pit! Just trace the shape on a large piece of poster board. Cut a hole out for the ‘pit’ (your baby) and paint it with different shades of green. Attach straps to the back to slide your arms through. Put on a brown t-shirt underneath and you’re ready for the party.

3. 'Here Comes Trouble' Costume 

Remember the game “Trouble” that you played as a child? Well, you can transform yourself into a version of the game, pregnancy style. The shape of the “Pop-o-Matic” is perfect if you’re pregnant. Be sure no one tries to play the game by pressing on the center!

4. 'Mummy' to Be 

DIY doesn’t get much easier than making a mummy costume. Simply wrap yourself in white cloth or even toilet paper or make a shirt that resembles a mummy. This is a great last-minute costume idea if you aren’t able to buy your costume early enough or if you don’t want to spend too much.

5. Fishbowl Costume 

This is a fun costume that doesn’t require a lot of materials. You’ll need a comfy black dress, some blue material to make a fishbowl, and some other material for the fish.

This fun DIY costume is bound to delight everyone who sees it. Pop Nemo ‘inside’ the bowl for an extra creative touch.
