It’s a tedious expectation, a certainty of dull hours and duller rewards: Halloween is creeping ever closer but seems impossible to enjoy. Pregnancy defies the season, you’re certain — it will leave you without a costume to claim or candy to search for.
The truth is far kinder, however.
You can share in the thrills (and treats) of the holidays. You simply must first find the perfect style:
The Baker Beauty
Expectant mothers understand the importance of laughter (it helps to compensate for the hormonal havoc that’s constantly wrought). No greater giggles will be achieved than with the pregnant baker costume. This ensemble celebrates the power of the pun, with women able to mention their little buns in the oven. The costume offers kitchen-worthy pieces: white hat, jacket and pants. These all boast flexible seams, which allow individuals to adjust the fabric accordingly. Lycra fibers ensure comfort.
Beaches, Bellies and Bouncing Balls
Pregnancy isn’t to be a solemn thing, with an ever-changing figure meant to be hidden from the world, deemed too unfamiliar to offer. A celebration is instead required, and the beach ball costume makes such a celebration simple. This is a style for the bold. Individuals must dress themselves first in a bikini (a maternity suit is recommended for the appropriate waist accommodations).
The bare span of a belly must then be painted to resemble a beach ball. Reds, yellows and blues should be smeared across the skin and will summon all attention. This costume should only be worn in warm conditions, however. Outdoor events should be approached with caution.
Bowling for Laughs
Confidence can often wilt in the wake of pregnancy. Soon-to-be mothers may find themselves unsure of their new silhouettes. However, Halloween isn’t to be forgotten with this burst of uncertainty — it’s instead to be embraced with a costume that can compensate. Gain smiles with the bowling ball design.
This simple ensemble will allow women to focus on their evenings instead of their worries. A black foam pad is worn, with strategic cut-outs offered for arms and legs. Across the pad is a collection of dots that resemble finger-holes. The design is basic but the reward is undeniable: uniqueness that doesn’t demand an excess of skin.
Bare Bones Approach
October is the month of ghouls and goblins, the wailing ghosts. A costume should therefore allow individuals to mimic all of that monster madness. Those with a flair for the dramatic (and the mildly macabre) should indulge in the season; and a skeleton suit allows that to be easy.
This piece is crafted from breathable black cotton. Across the front is a rendering of bones, with the inner-workings of the body exposed from head to toe — and even the belly. Women can prove their pregnancy by painting an image of their children within the design. It’s an unexpected humor that is certain to delight.
Halloween isn’t to be denied — it’s instead to be experienced with your child. Are you ready for excitement?
