This year on Halloween I will be 34 weeks pregnant. Any ideas for a fun or scary halloween costume other than the typical shot-gun bride or pregnant nun? — Sam
HOLY SHIT, do I ever love this question! I was pregnant on Halloween 2008, but only two or so months in — so this didn’t really apply. However, I have seen some very stellar Halloween costumes donned by pregnant women — including this Death Star costume Siouxzi rocked:
I have a few other favorites up my sleeve…
A Pregnant Pause
A pregnant pause is often used in comedy to build up suspense — if you have no idea what I’m talking about, Wikipedia explains it. I LOVE this idea, and it’s dead simple: dress in all black, and paint a white pause symbol on the part of your top that will go over your belly. TA-DA! You just rocked Halloween and all you really had to do was get knocked up and wield a paintbrush.
Ok, so my husband suggested this, and I was about to shoot it down when he added “You could have a baby in there with a snorkel on.” I MEAN SERIOUSLY. Someone attempt this and send us photos, PLEASE.
Planets are pretty obvious: you can take your pick (or even represent for Pluto! R.I.P.) OR go for a “solar system” theme. You know, why be one planet when you could be the sun and dangle eight planets around you? It might get a little tricky depending on what it is you plan on actually DOING on Halloween, but it may be worth a shot. Similar ideas include dressing as the moon, the sun without the planets, or… I don’t know, a comet. THINK SPACE!
This most definitely is not everything — what did you guys dress up as when you were pregnant?
