Homemade Mr. Potato Head Pregnant Belly Costume

I was very pregnant on Halloween and was searching for a great Halloween idea that would be simple, easy and inexpensive, yet super creative. My husband actually had this idea of a Mr. Potato Head Pregnant Belly Costume though and I figured it couldn’t get much easier and it ended up being a HUGE hit! I tied for best Halloween costume at work and the kids trick-or-treating that night all got a huge kick out of it too!

I just took a black long sleeve t-shirt and cut a hole for my tummy. It ended up gaping a little so I stuck double-sided tape on some points to keep it to my skin. I bought the darkest foundation I could buy and put that all over my belly and then took parts from a Mr. Potato Head toy and stuck it on with sticky Velcro to my stomach. It took a few different types of adhesives to find one that would work on both the toy parts and my skin, but I’m sure if I had experimented ahead of time I could have found some even better adhesive options (I didn’t try it ahead of time though). Some of the parts would pop off when I sat down and when I drove to work with the seat belt so I had to re-apply a few of them once I arrived, but as long as I was standing and walking around they stayed on without a problem. I had SO many comments everywhere I went that afternoon.

Items needed:
- Black t-shirt
- Dark foundation
- Mr. Potato Head toy
- Adhesive

Super easy, quick and inexpensive too! Plus you have a future toy for your little peanut later on!

The Cutest Costume EVER!!!

potato head parts

I love this idea and want to do it. Did you cut the stick parts off of the pieces before gluing them on? Like the part that goes into the potato when the kids are playing with it? Just curious bc it looks like it but then the toy wouldn't be usable afterwards. Thanks!

Love This!

Were the sticks cut off? Otherwise, it doesn't look right and certainly doesn't stay on.

Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc.

My sister wanted to dress my niece as the little girl (Boo) from Monsters Inc., and I wanted to coordinate my costume for trick-or-treating, so since I was round enough to fit the part, I decided to be Mike!

I simply went to Michael's and got a green t-shirt that fit me, looked up a picture online and painted his face on the front, making sure to measuring out where my belly sat with it on... I couldn't find green pants to wear, so I just used black stretchy pants.

For the homemade Boo costume, she took a purple kids sweatshirt, cut off the sleeves, painted scales on with metallic fabric paint, and attached a mop to the hood, white felt triangles glued on for the teeth, and 2 pipe cleaners with Styrofoam balls painted to look like eyes. Underneath is just a white long sleeved shirt and thick white tights!

Both our Little Boo and Mike Wazowski pregnant costumes came out great! Super inexpensive and pretty original!

Coolest Pregnant Queen and Jester DIY Halloween Costume 33

Pregnant Queen and Jester DIY Halloween Costume

Queen and Jester! The pregnant belly is the Jester!

I came up with this pregnant queen and jester DIY Halloween costume idea when I saw a tattoo made to put on a pumpkin, which is just the same as a stick on tattoo for kids. You could also draw or paint the Jester's face. Then I bought a jester hat and cut a slit up the back and added strings and tied it around my waist. I wore a tank top and black pants, got a red cape and crown. You can do your makeup really nice, and look pretty, while having a funny costume! The entire costume cost me less than $30 and it was very comfortable!
