The Halloween season is fast approaching and it’s time to start thinking about what costume to wear. If you’re pregnant, you might be struggling to find something that fits and is comfortable to wear all night long. Fear not – we’ve got the perfect DIY costume for you: a pregnant skeleton costume!
Materials you’ll need:
– Black leggings
– Black long-sleeve shirt
– White fabric paint
– White gloves
– Black beanie
– White felt
– Glue gun
– White ribbon
– White tulle
Step 1: Preparation
Make sure you have all the essential materials at hand, put on the leggings and black long-sleeved shirt, and lay down some newspaper to protect your workspace.
Step 2: Painting the Skeleton
Apply some white fabric paint on a paintbrush and start painting the skeletal structure on the shirt. For the spine, draw a straight line from the neck to the bottom of the shirt. Then make ribcage structures on each side of the spine by drawing long and thin lines. For the arms, paint the shoulder blades and bones as well as for the hands. Paint the thigh and fibula bones on the top of the leggings.
Step 3: Felt Bones
Cut some bone shapes using the white felt, such as the flat top pelvis bone and the smaller arm and hand bones. Then, with the glue gun, attach the felt bones to the shirt, pants, gloves, and beanie. Add some white tulle on the arms, legs, and beanie as if they were spider webs.
Step 4: Finishing the Skeleton
Loop some white ribbon through the bottom pant holes. Tie it in a knot along the thigh sides to accentuate the hanged and skeletal look.
Step 5: Hooray, you’re ready for Halloween!
It’s time to put everything together and admire your creation. Slip into your newly made pregnant skeleton costume, grab some black boots or flats, and you’re ready to show off your unique DIY costume.
