Coolest Pregancy Costume- Cat Eats Fishy

My daughter was 9 months pregnant and came up with this great idea for a costume for herself. We just bought some tight black pants, and a black shirt at the resale store for $2.00. She got the cat tail and ears a while back at the resale store as well for $1.00. I used paints that I had at the house that I use to paint arts and crafts with.

Cut a hole out of the shirt so her belly is exposed. Painted the fish tank and fish then the surrounding area I painted black so it would match the shirt and the fish would stand out.

Kerri wore this all night and entered a costume contest. Yep, she won 1st place with this costume and even made the local area newspapers, because they all thought it was too cute. She had the baby 1 week later. Can you guess what they dressed as for Halloween the next year? Yep Momma was the cat and baby was the fish. I am trying to send the pic of baby in her fish outfit. She is a big fishy now!!

  2. Dear Mrs.,

    If I could sew, and was an artist maybe I would do the same. However, I am neither, but I enjoy seeing creative, special costumes sewn by caring, lovable parents. Sometimes anything that comes from the heart is better quality and love than buying from the stores.
    Congratulations and loved your idea, I too am pregnant with our second child. He is due in January 10-15, 2010.

  3. Love this pregnant costume the best out of them all! Great idea to make the baby a fish the next year. Did you dress as a cat the next year too? Love this whole idea.

  4. 3 babies later, and everyone of them has been my goldfish. This is still my favorite costume I’ve gotten to sport while pregnant:) Thanks for all the comments!
