An expecting belly can make for some really fun and original maternity Halloween costumes. Think of it as you're soon-to-be born's first Halloween cotume and a rare opportunity to have a costume "prop" that no one else has. You can disguise your belly, color it, show it off, incorporate a special pun like "Bump" or "Bun in the Oven" and just have a whole lot of fun showing your belly off. To be pregnant is great, but to be pregnant during the Halloween season is even better!
