Since I am 8 and a half months pregnant, I wanted a costume that would highlight my belly. I suddenly remembered the cute little big-bellied dolls I had as a kid: Treasure Trolls!
For this Homemade Treasure Troll Pregnant Costume I bought a pink troll wig online. It came with a purple heart gem on the hair part, which I did not like, so I covered the gem by hot-gluing fake diamonds onto it. I kept the heart shape but just changed the color.
I cut a heart out of a piece of skin-colored felt. I chose felt because it moved and lay better on my round belly than paper. I hot-glued all different sizes of fake diamonds until the heart was completely covered. I used double sided tape to attach the heart treasure to my belly.
Being pregnant and wanting to be comfortable, I wore a pink maternity sweat suit with just a sports bra underneath. I attached earrings to my fake troll ears, put on hot pink eyeshadow and lipstick and even wore pink contact lenses!

Halloween 2011 - Expecting Barbie and Ken
My husband and I just found out we were expecting a baby the first week of October 2011. We decided we wanted to announce our big news around Halloween with original Halloween costumes. I have always been a big fan of Barbie so I thought making a Barbie and Ken couple costume would be fun! So, we came up with, "Expecting Barbie" and "Daddy-to-Be Ken".
We received many complements on them, and everyone thought they were a great way to share our big announcement!
The costumes were made with 2 wardrobe sized boxes which we wrapped, on the inside and the outside, with wrapping paper. I cut handles into the inside of mine so I could hold it up, while my husband was just able to hold his by the bottom. We then printed out the writing we needed to decorate the boxes. Barbie was finished off with some belly "stuffing" and a wig, and Ken was completed with a Baby's Daddy t-shirt?.

I decided to make my Halloween Costume this year since, being 7 months pregnant, there wasn't much out there for me to buy. Being a natural brunette, I couldn't think of anything more fun than a Homemade Expecting (Pregnant) Barbie Costume!
