When I was pregnant with my first daughter I wanted to be fat bastard thinking what a funny costume it would be but being to tired and not feeling the holiday spirit I didn't. I swore if I got pregnant again during that time of year I wouldn't pass up such an opportunity. I then got pregnant with my second daughter and out came Fat Bastard Costume.
I made his hat from a dollar store badge, felt and plaid fabric. The coat was a real coat that I sewed felt items onto to make it look like it belonged. The kilt I sewed by hand and ironed every pleat in prior to stitching. The shirt was a tank top I wrote on with a red marker.
The facial hair was some old fur seat covers my mom got from the second hand store at her job that I cut and glued to my face with Halloween face glue. My belt was some old leather left overs from when my son was Blade one year and some felt material that I tied around my waist with a shoe string.
The sock covers were plaid fabric I stitched together and tucked into my sox and the shoe covers were made from white felt with elastic straps underneath to hold them in place. My big turkey leg was a maracca that I covered in paper mache and then painted with brown spray paint.
My daughters love of her unborn brother had me thinking quick when I realized I had to dress all of us for a Halloween party. I managed to do it with just 4$. I found white pants and a white shirt in my closet, and bought a yellow tank top for 2$ at the Dollar store. I cut a big circle out of the tank and safety pinned it on to the belly of the shirt. Voila, mommy and baby brother are now an egg.
I found boxes that were out for recycling and bought some dark red and white paint (another 2$) at the Dollar store. I cut and painted some strips of bacon and used some boot laces for tying the bacon around their necks. Daddy and his little girl match and together we were breakfast.
My daughter was thrilled and the other party guests couldn't believe how great we all looked together. All for just 4$. The picture with daddy doesn't have the white pants cuz it was too cold out for trick or treating in capri's but I wore them for the party.

Homemade Baby's First Halloween Costume
This Homemade Baby's First Halloween Costume is morbid, light-hearted and kind of cute, all in one.
When you are pregnant it is difficult to not only find an outfit that fits for Halloween but also one that celebrates the time of life you are in. I made this costume "Baby's First Halloween" because it fits my sense of humor. I thought the idea was hilarious. The whole outfit cost $1.50.
I went to a local thrift store and bought a doll that was a little beat up and used its arms and legs. I stuck them to a flat piece of card stock and poked them through some small holes that I made in an old shirt. The purpose of the card stock was to keep the arms and legs from going all the way through the shirt. I added the cute little trick or treat bag to make it a little less morbid and more light-hearted.

Since it isn't very often that I am 9 months pregnant for Halloween, I had to come up with a great costume. Instead of the bun in oven or painting my actual belly, I came up with being Wilson from Cast Away. I had to wear semi-normal clothes for work so I decided on maternity jeans, my son's father's shirt and a white tank with a red hand-print.
