Coolest Homemade Pregnant Pumpkin Farmer Halloween Costume

At almost eight months pregnant, I was forced to get creative to come up with a unique costume that would showcase my growing belly and not try to hide it, so I made this Homemade Pregnant Pumpkin Farmer Halloween Costume .

First, I took an old pair of overalls and carefully measured and cut a hole in the middle to fit my bare belly. My husband was supposed to do the painting but he had to leave for work early. Not ready to give in so easily, I stood in front of the bathroom mirror and started painting myself using regular Halloween face paints and cosmetic make-up brushes.

I was thrilled with the realistic results and VERY surprised by my newly discovered talent! Most people didn’t even know I was pregnant and that the pumpkin was actually my bare stomach until they reached out touched it….their reaction? Priceless!

As word spread, complete strangers were coming up to me. It was a fun day and my older kids were thrilled that mom had such a “cool” costume.

  1. Sweet and great idea- looks great and really hard to find out, that the pumpkin is your belly-
    wish you all the best for the sweet inside of your “pumpkin” :))
    I love the idea

  2. I’m 8 months pregnant, and I had no idea what to be for Halloween. That is the coolest idea ever. I guess I know what I am going to be now!!

  3. I LOVE it!!! It doesn’t even look like your stomach…it seriously looks like your holding a pumpkin in front of you!!! Very NEAT idea!!! :)

  4. Wow, that is amazing! I didn’t realize you hand painted it until I read your story. Great job!! Love it!

  5. Wow I was very confused when I read your story that you said you painted it, I had to keep looking at it until I finally realized it was not a real pumpkin!!!

  6. i’m so using this idea! i thought of painting a pumpkin on my stomach but this is too cute and my dad is a great artist!

  7. that’s to cute when i was pregnant with my 1st baby I painted a pumpkin on my tummy but I never thought of wearing it out. so i end up wear my dads work clothes n went as a fat man but i think Im doing this one this year it just to cute

  8. I am 8 month pregnant, and I was in search on the costume when I came across your picture. I didn’t want to be an over or pregnant nun… so when I read your story, I knew I had to use your idea. I didn’t find an overall, but I wore my old jeans, long white tank top (which I had to cut out in the belly area), and a farmer shirt on top. My pumpkin wasn’t as realistic as yours, but it was a Jack-O-Lantern, and you are right, at first everyone thought I drew on the shirt, and only after they touched it, they figured it was my bare skin.
    Thanks a lot for the idea! It was unique and I had a great time at my own Halloween/BabyShower.

  9. i love this! i want to do it, but i think it will be too cold to do. I’ll be 25 weeks, and I’m really excited! thanks for the idea!

  10. I went a step further and my husband is wearing “farmer” outfit also with a shirt that says… “OFFICIAL PUMPKIN SEED PLANTER”
