I'm handing out candy at my friends' apartment on Halloween so they can take their daughter to the party in their building and trick-or-treating.

What should I be? I'm talking low-budget, pregnant-lady-friendly, most likely something I can find in my house and put together the night before.

Ready? Go!

Don't be anything. Halloween costumes are for kids.

What about this:

an oven (cardboard square around your belly with knobs and such...your belly is the 'bun')
your stripey shirt from the picture a few posts ago might work...

You should wear white shoes, possibly with red stripes near the toe.

A tan body suit with a red , preferably sparkly, circle over Drew with three black circles.

Then you'd be a bowling lane!

You could even drink a beer because you head would be the bowler...

I found these ideas on a website, so I can't take credit for them. I think the fish bowl and baby peeking out are my favorites.

1. Classic Jack-o-Lantern—paint your belly orange with a classic smiling face. You can wear ordinary street clothes, or overalls with a flannel shirt and a straw hat.

2. Fish-Bowl—paint a fish and some bubbles on your belly, then wear a light blue or white outfit.

3. Watermelon—paint stripes on your belly in 2 different shades of green to look like a watermelon, then dress like a farmer.

4. Bun in the Oven—paint a loaf of bread on your belly and dress like a chef. (A lot like wendy bird's idea)

5. Peek-a-Boo—if you know a really good artist, you could have them paint your belly to look like your baby is peeking out. Ordinary street clothes would work fine with this costume.

6. Crystal Ball—paint your belly white or light blue, and dress like a gypsy.

Don't know how you feel about bare-bellying, but they're pretty cute ideas none-the-less.

A nun.

Well, those are all good ideas. Not sure how I feel about painting my belly, Roxi and Japruf, so those are probably a no. Cute ideas, though!

Wendy Bird, I wore that shirt yesterday, so no dice there!

A nun would work if I could find a black sheet. Not sure about that, though. Although Mother Teresa always wore white, didn't she? That'd be much easier. But if I wear a white sheet, it's just like I'm a ghost. Maybe that will have to be it. Or a KKK member. But I don't think the kids would get that.

i keep picturing the bee costume john belushi wore on SNL.

wendy bird said...

you could just wear your everyday clothes...and carry a doll...make people guess what is going on.

nun's funny because you're pregnant. It'd be a shame not to take advantage of the great costuming asset you've got there... so my vote goes against kkk or ghost. then pregnant nun sortof makes me think of agnes of god. Did you ever see that? I don't remember it too well, but I think it was pretty freaky. I'm sure you'll figure something good out.
