- Apply your favorite toxin-free belly oil and top with Tummy Butter.
- Now you look like a Hallow-queen!

4. Avenger's Endgame Mom-Thor Costume

A hilarious tribute to the iconic, offbeat character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What you will need:

5. Pregnant Lady Emoji 🤰

6. Pac-Man Family Costume
Another cute way to celebrate pregnancy and family during Halloween is with Pac-Man-themed costumes. The mom takes center stage and dresses up the baby bump as the iconic Pac-Man, while the rest of the family becomes ghosts!
With just a few materials and a bit of creativity, here are the things you can do to make this:
For the mom, wear a black shirt and pants to create a Pac-Man silhouette. Paint Pac-Man's face on your baby bump with yellow fabric paint and that’s it!
For the dad and kids, wear white shirts and black pants to create the ghost silhouettes. For the ghost bodies, cut a colored, see-through fabric into ghost-like shapes. You can go for the ghost shape with a clear umbrella and a pointed bottom to make it easier. Make eyes by cutting a white cloth into ovals and a blue cloth into pupils. Put it all together with either pins but I recommend using glue or tape for safety, and voila! There’s definitely going to be a lot of Pac-Man-style munching on candies!
7. Baby or Toddler Snail Costume
For those with little ones who aren't expecting, here's a bonus treat. Consider crafting this DIY snail costume for your baby or toddler. It's a creative, affordable, and utterly adorable way to join in the Halloween fun!
Gather your materials.
Cut 6 feet (1.8 meters) of kraft paper and crumple it up.
Uncrumple and roll the kraft paper lengthwise. Then twist it up.
Tightly roll the twisted kraft paper into a spiral and use hot glue to secure the roll as you go. Hold the roll in place for a couple minutes each time you add glue.
Repeat Steps 1-4 to make a second spiral.
Cut two 1 foot (30.5 cm) pieces of kraft paper. Then roll and twist them. These will be the tentacles for the snail’s eyes!
Glue the pom-poms to the top of the tentacles and add on googly eyes if you have them. Then glue the tentacles to the headband. It works best if you wrap the ends around the bottom of the headband. Be sure to hold them in place to secure the glue for several minutes!
Cut a piece of cardboard so the length is slightly larger than the kraft paper spirals and the width is slightly smaller than your child’s back.
Poke holes in the corners of the cardboard. Measure around your child’s arms (like your fitting a backpack) and adjust the length of the rope or ribbon. Tie the rope or ribbon onto the cardboard.
Glue the kraft paper spirals together. Once the glue has dried, turn them on their side and glue the snail shell onto the cardboard. You’ll need a lot of glue to secure the shell so be sure to hold it in place for several minutes!
Save this DIY Halloween costume for kids & toddlers!
Materials you'll need:
- kraft packing paper
- Cardboard Rectangle
- rope or ribbon
- hot glue gun
