Get a huge orange t-shirt or sweatshirt, and paint a jack-o-lantern face on it (or glue on black felt to make a face.) Use elastic or a belt under your belly to give it more of a "pumpkin" look.

Go as a pregnant bride or a pregnant nun

Or just use any old costume that would work equally well pg or not (witch, literary character, etc.)

For an indoor halloween party, I'd say wear a cropped top and low rise pants, and paint your belly orange like a pumpkin! Or paint a monster face on it.

I was thinking Catholic School Girl or Nun... but i'm sure those have been done and I don't have the garb for such costumes.

Skeleton with a baby skeleton on your tummy

Paint yourself green and go as a Jade Buddah

Depending on weather:
Short shorts, white tank, colored bra, Pigtails etc...

Get the clown costume with the huge wire hoop waist... IYKWIM! I look hillarious in it, and as my belly is still smaller than the artificially created one, it is uber comfy!

When I was pregnant with my first child, to a Halloween party I wore a short black tight dress with black tights and a white circle with an "8" drawn on on my belly....an 8-ball!

I don't guess either of these would be very simple, but I was thinking about geting a big cardboard box and fixing it up to look like an oven. get it, like you have a bun in the oven? Or (not sure exactly how you would accomplish this), but go as a big jar of Preggo Spaghetti sauce. =)

I saw a costume like this for sale online. It actually looked horrible and I thought it could be much better done homemade!

At first I was thinking of dressing as a tree (brown pants, green top with leaves) and trying to build a nest around my belly, which would be an egg. But I think I'm going to go with pregnant bride or pregnant prom queen.

I saw one once that I loved - the woman wore a one-piece longjohn set dyed dark green, and made a cap for her head to look like a pea pod - and then had a light green shirt on underneath with buttons undone so that her belly hung out - a pea in the pod!

Funny this thread is here, I was thinking of this last night.
I was thinking of being a Playboy Bunny who saw better days. You know bent ear, ripped fishnets, holding a 'can' of beer in one hand, obviously pregnant.
Wonder how many people would think it was funny...

This is actually what I was thinking about doing! I saw a belly painting gallery on a belly cast site I was looking at, and I loved the idea!

Me! That's great. I had a friend who dressed up as a "fallen" angel, blacked out tooth, crooked halo, pregnant. It was pretty funny.

When I was pg with Griffin, I wanted to be a "pregnant pause" - wearing all black and attach/paint two vertical white lines on my (clothed in black) belly. You know, like a pause button on a VCR/DVD/whatever.

DH said nobody would get it. I still think I was freakin' clever.

may my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living whatever they sing is better than to know  - e.e. cummings

I had a friend that painted her tummy as a watermelon when she was pregnant. When the baby was born, they took a picture of her, naked, in a watermelon bowl (watermelon cut in half and then all the 'meat' taken out to leave just the rind) and used the two pictures in the birth announcement.

When I was 7 months pg, I got orange and black face paint. I wore a black sport bra paired with black yoga pants, so that my belly was exposed. I painted my entire belly orange, then painted on a pumkin face with the black paint. It was awesome and I got tons of great reactions when I answered the door to hand out candy!

I am definately living in the wrong neighborhood. You all have MUCH better ideas than anyone around here. If I bring the candy, can I come visit you for Halloween?

How about for only slightly pregnant? I don't know that I'll be showing all that much (already pretty fluffy!) by Oct 31st. But I still want to explore options that cleverly play on my pregnancy... I was thinking of a shirt that said "senior, class of 2025" for wearing to school that day (I teach high school and the seniors all have shirts like that) but that's all I got. Oh well, I can always go as the girl with the pearl earring again! Nice and comfy, can still wear it even with the tummy growing.

ooh, such a good thread. I'm having a Halloween party and I'll be 22 weeks at that point.

So far I was thinking pregnant Bride of Frankenstein but you guys are all so creative!

Since I don't have much of a belly yet I don't know that I can do any of the costume ideas that involve the belly but I do like the belly as a pumpkin idea!

I've also seen a costume where you wear a sash (like miss america), but it says Miss conception.

I guess you could dress up or casual for that one and they'd get the idea.

I've heard of a gumball machine, a speed bump (yellow line painted on black outfit), a fish tank painted on your belly, a deviled egg, hmmm
and the basic basketball or pumpkin painting.

My mom was Mother Nature when she was pregnant with me.

When I was pregnant w/ DS my DH painted a pumpkin on my belly. DS LOVES seeing the pictures of my pumpkin belly!

I love the ideas everyone has!
