halloween is nearly here. i wrote before about this great maternity costume on instructables. but lately i’ve been seeing my pregnant friends on facebook (who i haven’t yet hidden from my news feed) posting and discussing ‘clever’ halloween costume ideas that incorporate their baby bumps.
after a little precursory searching of google, it’s easy to see that for whatever reason, all sense of creativity and humour goes out the window when a pregnancy settles in. most of the ideas in an average image search include women painting their bellies with flowers or fairies, or else as a watermelon or basketball:
of course, there are always the women who don’t want to give up on the halloween sexy. so you got knocked up – don’t let that stop you from being a sexy nurse or a sexy devil or a sexy pirate:
i say, if you’re going to do it, go big or go home.
variations of the zombie baby is still one of my favourites:
and, of course, being the jersey shore fan that i am, this pregnant snookie is a close second. (oh wait… that’s no costume).
