Things That Go Bump In The Night: Best Pregnant Halloween Costumes

Check out our favourite ways to incorporate your baby bump into an awesome Halloween ensemble

Don't let your bump make you feel like a lump this October 31st. Harness the power of your pregnant curve(s) and get inspired by these weird and wonderful costume ideas, that make your belly the main event this Halloween!

Whether you have weeks to plan or need an idea you can turn around quickly, there is something for all you moms-to-be out there.


Go as the world's coolest teen pregnancy, and take a partner or friend as Paulie Bleeker. All you need is a striped tee, skirt over jeans and your collaborator can simply don gym shorts and a sweatband. Take along a large carton of sunny-d to really top off the look!

Bumble Bee

All this costume needs is a stripy yellow and black tee shirt, black tights and some antennae’s. It’s the perfect, comfy costume for a mommy-to-bee that you can embellish as much as you want. Plus, if it’s good enough for Beyonce, it’s good enough for us.

Baseball player

We’ve all seen the basketball bumps popping up at Halloween, but what about a Major League twist on the theme?

Miley Cyrus' wrecking ball

We don’t all have a Halloween party in the diary, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get a last minute invite. And when you do, a simple idea like this will blow your friends minds! Bring out your inner Miley without getting undressed--cover your bump in aluminium foil and wear a black tee over it with the bump cut out. Pop on a chain necklace with a clantily-clad Barbie doll affixed, et Voila! Ms Cyrus would be proud.

Bun in the oven


For the craftier among us, this costume is a real winner. Although it requires a certain amount of imagination and artistry, the actual costume itself calls for little more than a cardboard box and some paint. Accessorize with an oven glove to round things off.

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Get weird and wacky with a Dr Seuss inspired costume. Who needs a partner when you and baby can be Thing 1 and Thing 2! Throw on something red, find a blue wig and you're good to go!

Here’s an udderly great way to incorporate a bump into your costume! You’ll need a black top with white patches, a pink belly and for the udders, you could even use customized baby pacifiers! You can try the look with or without a farmer friend, who just needs a checked shirt and hat.

Be your own Jack 'o' Lantern this October 31st by disguising your bump as the spookiest of all the vegetables. Face paint and a steady hand will make for a great costume that requires very little preparation. Wear autumnal colours to match and you're good to go!

Housewife and milkman

Channel your inner retro chic as a 50’s housewife and get your partner in crime to go as the milkman! This cheeky costume will give partygoers something to talk about and is super easy to assemble. Wear something polka dot with an apron and get your companion to go in all white, with cap, bow tie and some moo juice to boot.

Construction worker

Incorporate your own little work-in-progress by dressing up in a construction themed costume. Get yourself a hard hat and a high vis jacket or flannel shirt. For bonus points make a 'Bump in the road' sign and stick it on your belly. Borrow a tool belt or make your own, adding a hammer, measuring tape or even a handy pocket for your cell phone!
