What To Be For Halloween When You’re Pregnant & Don’t Have Time To DIY

If you are a pregnant person right now who is looking for a celebrity or fictional character to emulate for Halloween, you’re in luck. Between the Kardashian baby boom, and the multiple pregnant Mamma Mia! characters you could dress up as, Halloween in 2018 is a good time to have a baby bump.

But pregnant or not, chances are you do not have time to DIY an elaborate costume that you saw on Pinterest or Etsy, which is understandable. But with a little imagination, you can whip up a witty Halloween costume with clothes and accessories you probably have in your house already or can easily buy in a pinch.

Ahead are a handful of pregnant celebrities and fictional characters that you should dress up as this year.


Khloé Kardashian

The carefully orchestrated Kardashian pregnancy reveals this year began with Khloé, who announced her pregnancy on Instagram, then confirmed it on Ellen.

What you need: There are a few ways you can play pregnant Khloé. Maybe you buy a pair of maternity Good American jeans? Or stick to workout clothes and a blonde ponytail? Or maybe you go all-out in recreating her pregnancy announcement, with jeans and a Calvin Klein bra?

Donna Sheridan (from Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again)

If your squad decided to dress as Mamma Mia! characters this Halloween, first of all, that’s amazing. And if you’re the mamma of the bunch, you could easily copy Donna’s or Sophie’s style. Bonus points if you get a friend to play auntie Christine Baranski or grandma Cher.

What you need: A knit poncho or pair of maternity overalls will do the trick.

Cardi B

Cardi B’s pregnancy was pretty iconic from start to finish: She announced it on SNL, twerked at Coachella, graced the cover of Rolling Stone, and slayed at the Met Gala. Serve one of her many different looks on Halloween night, okurrr?

What you need: Check out Fashion Nova for lookalike pieces that would work as a costume. Since you have the bump, why not go for the all-white dress she wore on SNL?

Kylie Jenner

As Kim Kardashian West recently put it, Kylie’s pregnancy was “the best-kept secret of our generation.” Although technically nobody saw Kylie pregnant until after she had given birth, chances are everyone will know who you are.

What you need: Wear an all-black outfit, “disguise glasses,” and the Stormi-inspired Kylie Cosmetics lip kit if you can score it.

Chrissy Teigen

Dressing up as the mother of the cutest children on earth, Miles and Luna Legend, seems like a daunting task, but it’s worth it. Since we all know how to pronounce Teigen properly now, you can go around correcting people all night if you want.

What you need: A Nintendo Switch, a copy of Cravings: Hungry For More, a taco truck, a silk robe, and a headband of the day.

Evelyn (from A Quiet Place)

Those who prefer dressing as spooky characters over cute ones on Halloween should consider going as Evelyn (played by Emily Blunt) from the apocalyptic thriller A Quiet Place. You don’t have to be completely silent like she was in the labor scene, but you might want to shh people for effect.

What you need: A long floral maxi dress and a sweater.

Serena Williams

Since giving birth to her daughter Olympia, Serena Williams has become an outspoken advocate for maternal healthcare. Seems only fitting, then, that you should honor her.

What you need: A fierce tennis outfit and maybe some Snapchat spectacles.

Kate Middleton

Meghan Markle and the Royal Wedding may have stolen the show this summer, but just one month prior, Kate Middleton gave birth to the third royal baby.

What you need: A chic ensemble, immaculate hairdo, and a fascinator if you’re into that.
