Easy Maternity Halloween Costumes to Try This Year

Picking a costume come October 31 is already hard enough, but add a growing baby bump into the mix, combined with a super-limited selection of maternity Halloween costumes available online, and we wholeheartedly understand why someone expecting a baby may choose to opt out of the holiday entirely. Our best advice? It's all about getting creative with your getup (that means it's time to put those DIY skills to work), dear parents-to-be, because there are so many adorable, clever ways you can (and should) incorporate your bump into your look this year.

There are, of course, a handful classic pregnancy costumes that you simply can't go wrong with—we're talking about Juno MacGuff—and then there are those getups that may not immediately come to your mind. Once you see them, though, you won't be able to forget them, because they are simply too cute to stop thinking about.

For example, how's this for a maternity costume? Dress up as a gumball machine, taping colorful pom-poms onto your bump. Or how about going as an egg—a pretty eggcellent (and easy) look that only requires a yellow T-shirt, a simple white tee, and some scissors.
