These 21 Pregnancy Halloween Costumes Feel More Like A Trick Than A Treat.

Pregnancy comes with a lot of little problems: the clothes that don’t fit, the odd food that you crave odder hours and frequent bathroom breaks are just the tip of the belly bump. As any mom will tell you, bringing new life into the world is amazing and terrible all at the same time. 

Especially when it comes to holidays. With Halloween coming up, pregnancy can get in the way of finding the perfect costume. But for these ladies, it was an opportunity to get creative. Some got a bit more, um, creative than others. Take a look!

1.) Troll Doll

2.) Basketball Family

3.) Mama Bird in Nest

4.) Beer Belly

5.) Mermaid and Pearl

6.) Pin Cushion

7.) Skelo-family

8.) Zombie Baby

9.) Squirrel and Acorn

10.) Pumpkin Farmer

11.) Unicorn and Baby Unicorn

12.) Bun in the Oven

13.) Pilgrim and Turkey

14.) Bowling Pin

15.) Octopus

16.) Luck of the Irish

17.) Housewife and Milkman

18.) Clown

19.) Beach Babe and Volley Ball


21.) …mermaid?

Hopefully some of these costume choices aren’t hereditary. Yikes.

8 Halloween Costumes No One Else Will Have In 2014 (Photos)


Halloween is right around the corner — and if you’re one of those people who gets physically ill when you see someone wearing the same shirt as you, you’ll want to make sure you’re not wasting your time on an uncreative costume.

There’s no shortage of lists available for people who want to find the most popular costumes for 2014, but if you want to truly set yourself apart this year, you’ll need to think outside the box/tightly-sealed plastic bag containing an outfit made of odd-smelling rubber.

These costumes might not be the most conventional outfits out there, but if you want to be truly original this Halloween, you really can’t go wrong with any of them.

An incredibly minor character from “Frozen”


This marks the first Halloween since the release of “Frozen,” which means that half of the people hitting the streets will be either dressed as Elsa, that other princess, or the snowman whose name I’m sure I’d remember if I even had gotten around to seeing the movie.

You probably aren’t going to find many people dressed as the Irish Dignitary who barely appears on screen and whom you probably forgot about entirely until seeing his picture. It’s the best way to be original when you don’t want to stray too far from the rest of the pack.

Jaden Smith at Kim and Kanye’s Wedding


Batman costumes never actually make you look as cool as you want them to, but that hasn’t stopped at least one Caped Crusader from showing up at every Halloween party in the past couple of decades.

This year, I suggest you set yourself apart by dressing up in the white Batman outfit Jaden Smith wore to Kim and Kanye’s wedding. Bonus points for figuring out a way to throw some extra emphasis on the first letter of every word you say.

Chris Pratt


Chris Pratt was the Jennifer Lawrence of 2014, and you’re sure to see your fair share of Star-Lords and Andy Dwyers at parties this year. However, if you really want to set yourself apart, I’d suggest simply going as Chris Pratt.

All you have to do is throw on a pair of jeans and a generic t-shirt while approaching everything you do with extreme enthusiasm. The best part is you can also tell people you’re Seth Rogen, Jason Segal or Mark Ruffalo if you get bored at any point.

Solange Knowles

You probably remember the infamous video of Solange Knowles going after Jay Z in an elevator after the Met Gala — a video that reminded the world that Solange Knowles still exists.

Nobody really knows what Solange looks like, so all you really have to do to successfully pull this off is find the couple that decided to go as Jay Z and Beyoncé and do everything you can to ruin their night in under 30 seconds.

If you can get your hands on a giant cardboard box, you can also go as The Elevator.



First: Pick a mildly entertaining talent, impression or one-liner that you can consistently complete in less than six seconds.

Once you show up to the party, start doing whatever talent you picked and keep doing it until all the people at the party lose interest and asks themselves why they cared so much in the first place.

A YouTube Prankster


At one point in time, you might have had to put in some effort to pull off this costume, but nowadays all you really have to do is provoke as many people as possible and yell, “It’s a prank!” when they decide to stand up for themselves.

If you want to take it to the next level, film yourself doing this and then actually post it to YouTube. There’s a pretty good chance you’ll go viral.

A “Game of Thrones” fan


There are plenty of characters to pick from if you want to spend this Halloween dressed as someone from “Game of Thrones.” However, if you want to avoid the drawn-out duel that will inevitably occur when you run into a second person with the same costume, you need to think outside the box.

My suggestion? Skip the characters and go as a fan of “Game of Thrones.” All you need to do is pin a “Winter Is Coming” button to your “Keep Calm, and Khaleesi” graphic tee, and you’re well on your way to the perfect costume.

Make sure you refer to the series as “A Song of Ice and Fire” and stress that you enjoy the books more than the show. If you’re going to do it, you want to do it right.

Someone Who Hated The Ice Bucket Challenge


The Ice Bucket Challenge took over the Internet for a few weeks back in August. If you’re going to a Halloween party this year, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to find someone dressed up as the Challenge — just so everyone else knows that they’re aware of social trends.

Of course, you can’t mention the Ice Bucket Challenge without talking about the people who went out of their way to let everyone know how stupid they thought it was. It might have raised millions of dollars for ALS research, but that didn’t stop people from complaining.

If you really want to capture the spirit, throw on a five-panel hat and an ill-fitting Hawaiian t-shirt before tracking down the guy with the Ice Bucket Challenge costume and berate him for begging for attention.

I can’t think of anything that better sums up the spirit of 2014.

I Create Costumes For My Children And Photograph Them In Magical Scenarios

As a teenager or even young adult I woudn’t dare to call myself “creative”. It all changed when I got my first DSLR. Then my son, Jacob, was born. I discovered Pinterest, gave birth to my second child – Barbara, learned to sew… All these episodes have made me who I am now.

I’ve been photographing my kids since they were born. I’ve taken hundreds of thousands of photos. But it was about a year ago when I started looking for something more unique. Being inspired by amazing photographers from all over the world I was trying to find my own way to capture my children’s childhood. And I still am.

I create costumes by myself. Mostly, every single piece of the outfit for a photo session is made by me (except for the shoes) I generally use the cheapest available fabric I can get. I also try to choose a location for the photo shoots near my home (usually within 20 km).

A photo session lasts no longer than 10 to 15 minutes (when it comes to my daughter, aged 3, 5-6 minutes MUST be sufficient). I never pose my kids. It is a story or a tale told during the session that makes them react naturally.

I am not a professional photographer. By profession I am a teacher in a secondary school in Poland. Photography turned out to be my hobby, so as sewing. Both of them give me a huge amount of energy. My head is full of ideas for next pictures. If only a day was longer…

5 Non-‘Sexy’ Halloween Costume Ideas To Be Less Than Predictable This Year


It’s that time of year again when you try to remember the magic that Halloween used to bring you as a child. You remember when it was cool to dress up as a kid, then it became dorky when you were a preteen and teenager. Now, it’s expected that you go all out as a 20-something.

But what if you’re just one of those girls who can’t pull off the “slutty” look? There’s just something about being a slutty-pirate-fairy-nurse that just doesn’t appeal to you.

You’d flaunt it if you had it, but frankly, you’re lacking the confidence to give it a good ol’ college (post-college) try.

Never fear! I’ve come up with some costume options that will cover up any skimpy French maid dress or cleavage-baring sailor suit.

5. Favorite historical figure or author

How about going as Eleanor Roosevelt? Or Susan B. Anthony? Even better, how about Charlotte Bronte?

No one will know who you are, but think of how fancy you will feel in your floor-length gown holding a Pabst beer. If people ask whom you are going as, you can give them a free history or literature lesson — at least until their eyes start glazing over and they walk away in boredom.

4. Anything round

A pumpkin. A balloon. A beach ball. There are so many different costume ideas you can conjure with this shape! The best part is, none, and I mean none, of them are sexy.

Why stop there? Triangles, squares, octagons — the options are limitless.

3. Return to childhood

Have a costume you rocked when you were a kid? Think about resurrecting it (just make sure to buy it in an adult size; otherwise, you will be wearing something even smaller than the women’s costumes at Target).

Who doesn’t love a giant cow costume? You looked awesome in it when you were just a toddler, so why not wear it now? It may not get you any numbers at the Halloween party your friend throws every year, but think of how many one-liners you can pull off when you’re sporting large spots and a tail.

On the other hand, all the ones I can think of are pretty lame.

2. Quirky cultural references

Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus hasn’t done anything too outlandish this year, but no worries! We have the bendable iPhone 6, Shia LeBeouf with a paper bag over his head and cronuts. Again, all not exactly sexy (though, we might argue Shia LeBeouf is sexier with the bag on).

All we need is some creativity, and we have the perfect Halloween costume for the hip, savvy crowd you hang out with. No doubt it will involve a good portion of your time, money and superglue, but everyone will be jealous of your artistic genius, right?

1. Pajama party

If you are looking for the ultimate lazy girl costume, you can never go wrong with the classic sleepover/hungover/stayed-up-all-night look. The great thing about this costume is that it literally just involves rolling out of bed. Hair too perfect? Mess it up a bit.

On that chilly Halloween night, you’ll be nice and toasty in your footie pajamas, and completely covered! Granted, you might get a little hot if you decide to hit the dance floor when you are out and about with your friends, but no one will try to get you into bed because you’ve obviously just been there.

No one said finding the perfect Halloween costume was an easy thing to do, and when you want to dress to impress, the pressure might be on. When thinking about giving in, ask yourself if you really want to pay $49.99 for that “Deluxe Sultry Pixie Costume” with glittery wings.

Yeah, I thought so.

Game-Changer: This Startup Just Broke Kickstarters All-Time Funding Record With A Scream Mask That Has A Mouth Slit So You Can Still Eat Chicken Tenders

Crowdfunding campaigns are a dime a dozen, but every once in a while, something truly exciting comes along that takes the internet by storm. Thats exactly what happened earlier this week, when Austin, TXbased startup Into Solutions Inc. launched what very quickly became the most successful Kickstarter campaign of all time. The product? A Scream mask that has a mouth slit so you can still eat chicken tenders while wearing it.

So. Much. Win.

Within an hour of going live, the campaign for the chicken-accommodating horror mask had already soared past its $1 million goal, and in less than two days, it has managed to rake in over $22 million from more than 70,000 individual backerseasily taking the record for the highest-funded project in Kickstarters history!

The design of conventional Scream masks fails to intuitively address the wearers need to consume chicken tenders without impediment, reads the About section of the products Kickstarter. With a horizontal feeding slit across the mouth area, our Scream mask provides a simple yet elegant solution to the chicken finger problem, creating a Scream maskwearing experience thats unrivaled in convenience and fun.

Though the Kickstarter has barely gone live, demand is already overwhelming supply, and a recent campaign update cautions that, due to manufacturing limitations, new backers might not receive their masks until months down the road. However, donations have hardly slowed, as consumers are clearly extremely excited at the prospect of finally being able to keep their Scream mask on when its time to eat meat.

How many of these incredible new Scream masks do you think youll buy? Tweet/Facebook us and let us know!
