The jack-o-lantern is the quintessential belly costume for pregnant women. It's a great maternity Halloween costume that lets your personality shine right through because you can draw your pumpkin's face to match your mood! Here's how to transform your own bump this Halloween.
1. First, gather the body paint that you'll need to draw your pumpkin. To create the design you see pictured, you'll need orange and yellow paint. You may also want to use green to create a pumpkin stem or black instead of yellow to detail the facial features.
2. Before you start your design, make sure you're already wearing the shirt you want to wear with your pumpkin belly. It may be hard to change shirts later without ruining your design. If the weather is warm, a tank top will sit nicely above your belly. If it is cold out and you'll need to cover your design, be sure to allow the body paint time to set before covering it. It may smear no matter what, but the more time you allow before covering it, the better your changes are of keeping your artwork at its best.
3. Next, it's time to draw the pumpkin. You may need to recruit a helper, especially if you're late in pregnancy and have a particularly large “canvas” for your design.
4. The first thing you need to do is draw the outline of the pumpkin. Use orange body paint.
5. Next is the fun part! Design your jack-o-lantern's face using orange, yellow, or black body paint. Choose the color based on what you'd like the final design to look like. For example, if you want black features, outline them in black. Tip: Use an eyeliner to “sketch” the design before you commit to it with body paint.
6. Once you've sketched your pumpkin face, fill in the details with body paint. You may need to use a mirror if you don't have a helper to make sure you don't miss any spots.
7. Finally, don't forget to pose for a picture so you'll always remember your baby's very first Halloween!
It's The Great Pumpkin (Patch)!
Get creative with one of these variations of the classic pumpkin maternity Halloween costume!
- Skip the face and draw those familiar pumpkin grooves on your belly with black body paint. This design will be adorable on big and little baby bumps alike.
- Are you pregnant with multiples? Draw two pumpkins for twins or three for triplets.
- Feeling a little funky? Try mixing up the colors. A purple pumpkin with green facial features is an eye-catching variation.
- If you'll be outside in the dark, paint the face with glow in the dark paint. Whether your pumpkin's facial features appear on a dark background or on the standard orange color, the glowing three-dimensional face will create a delightfully spooky display!
- If you're particularly artistic, why stop with the pumpkin? Include the vine by adding leaves or even a few smaller orange orbs for decoration.
- Want to opt for something different? Draw a full Halloween moon on your belly instead with yellow body paint. Add the silhouette of a bat, a witch on a broom, or even a black Halloween cat for the perfect finishing touch!
Halloween is the perfect time to have fun and flaunt your mood, and this great maternity Halloween costume is the ideal way to do it. You won't have this opportunity very often, so proudly display that little pumpkin you're growing while you've got the chance!
