The Halloween Conundrum

Weeks ago I had planned out in my mind that I would have a beautiful baby girl dressed as the cutest glowworm for Halloween. OBVIOUSLY, that is not going to happen considering she is still quite content lounging in my belly (in a Mike Meyer's-esque voice I keep thinking get out of my belly). Either way, she is in there and now I have to come up with a last minute costume. Yesterday they held a costume contest at the Rec center (where I am currently teaching aerobics). I quickly pulled on a full body leopard print leotard, black leg warmers, a cut up belly shirt, a bangle bracelet and long dangly earrings. I thought I looked like a rockin' aerobic instructor...umm plus a giant belly. I taught the class, got pretty sweaty and then walked out towards the office to sign my time card. While walking to the office I strolled past 3 high school girls. Immediately one girl turned towards the other and whispered (in an all too loud voice), "Ewww Gross!" Apparently I didn't look as good as I thought I did.

Conundrum: I need a costume for tonight's Church Party!

1. The aerobic outfit is out! I cant go around unintentionally grossing people out.
2. I have a cheerleader's outfit. I could be a pregnant cheerleader (but is that really a good idea for the Church party?)
3. I have a basketball uniform. I could paint my belly to look like a basketball and keep it exposed all night. (Once again, should I be showing off my belly at church?)
4. If you have any last minute ideas, please drop me a line!

Go as the Queen Bee. Wear a big yellow sweatshirt and paint or sew/glue black stripes on it. Or easier is probably a big read sweatshirt and paint a stripe down the middle and then large dots on the sides for a ladybug.

One of my friends wore a white shirt and painted on the lines & shapes to make the tummy part a soccerball. Or be a big m&m. Cut out two giant felt/fabric circles and use acrylic paint (or fabric applique/ironed on) for the letter - or just put the letter on a sweatshirt.

Or another one I saw of a pregnant lady was she was a white trash trucker - so the belly was her beer belly, ha ha.

Hahahahah!!!! You're Gross! Man - how many times must I have done that as a teenager? Sad to be on the receiving end now. lol

I like Leslie's ideas. Bugs are a good way to go. :)

Or better yet, go with the Mike Meyers character and go around all night saying, "Get out of my belly." :P

You could wear a black shirt, and cut a little baby skeleton out of white felt and affix it to the belly of the shirt. I saw a pregnant lady with an outfit like that once, and it looked awesome!

ps- did you get a picture of the rockin aerobic instructor outfit? If so, you should post it for us!

I was hugely pregnant at Halloween time with Athena and I went as a spider. I made extra legs, wore a tight black outfit, and put big red eyes on my belly like it was the head. :)

I was a pumpkin when I was prego. The kind where you stuff it all full of newspaper so you are a huge sphere.

You could go as that pregnant man (remember him?).
Or a nun!

hmm, very hard to decide. 1)Frankenstein's wife that is pregnant. Fortune teller, the belly as your crystal ball.
2)Mother Earth - paint your belly like a globe.
3)You can make an "oven" out of a cardboard box, and wear it around your waist (with a cut out for the oven door), and have a "bun in the oven" costume.
4)Sumo wrestler
5)Kool-aid man

ok thats all i found!!
