Coolest 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.

  10. I will be just about 29weeks when Halloween is here and I was so lost as to what i was going to wear, this is PERFECT!

  11. I’m totally doing that this year! I’m making mine a bit more gruesome looking though.. looking like the baby is busting out of the shirt by making the holes look more ripped open and adding a little fake blood :) totally going to use a little trick or treating bag too, just so people don’t think it is too brutal.

  12. I did this same costume today at work and WON money for most original costume!!!!
    The only thing I did differently is I had the baby sitting vertically rather than horizontal as in the pic. So the arms are at the top of my belly and legs at the bottom.
