You’ll need lots of face paint to pull off this brilliant costume idea – inspired by Roald Dahl’s legendary Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

10. Fortune Teller and her crystal ball
We love the creativity that’s gone into this fortune teller and crystal ball look. Think loose baggy pants, lots of gold jewellery and heavy eyeliner. And for a more DIY friendly crystal ball recreation – try wrapping your bump in kitchen foil and securing with tape. Your friends are sure to get the idea.
Dress up as Juno and Paulie Bleeker from the hit 2007 film Juno that made a star of Michael Cera and Elliot Page. We think this is a pregnant Halloween costume idea expectant mums can get on board with, due to the appealing comfort factor of this outfit.

This outfit combo is arguably one of the funniest pregnant Halloween costume ideas. With your bump masquerading as a cow’s udders for the frightful night.

A few cut-out black felt spots then finish the cow look off perfectly.
16. Dirty Dancing
“I carried a watermelon?!” Pay homage to the iconic line from hit film Dirty Dancing with this alternative Johnny and Baby outfit. We reckon you can draw the watermelon on a white t-shirt easily with a few green felt tip markers. They’ll be no second-guessing on who you’ll be either.

Show them who’s the mother of dragons with this fun Game of Thrones inspired costume. And pick up an almost identical Emilia Clarke style wig online at Amazon.
28. Tennis ball
This expectant mum came to play for Halloween in this hilarious tennis ball-inspired costume. Find yourself some yellow fabric and get crafty at copying an iconic tennis ball by brands like Wilson or Slazenger.
