    Default When I grow up - costume help

    I'm going to a party this weekend with the theme "when I grow up" and I don't know what to wear!

    I will be 32 weeks pregnant at the time so I do have a bump. Other than that i'm pretty short and a size 8/10 depending on the make of the clothes.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!

    Wear your own clothes and say when I grow up I want to be a mummy

    A few ideas that would be comfy:

    A toga and say you want to be a philosopher
    A black cloak and wig and say you want to be a judge
    Hospital scrubs and say you want to be a surgeon or nurse
    Track pants, t-shirt and high visibility vest with helmet and say you're a construction worker or traffic controller
    Green and gold sports clothes with a medal around your neck and say you're an Olympian

    Would any of those work?

    I agree with SumaStarlet.. wear your maternity gear and say you want to be a mummy.. even bring along a toy pram and baby haha.

    Or you could get a Mrs Claus outfit and say you want to be Mrs Claus.

    These are all great, keep them coming!

    My ideas were along the line of Mrs Claus or a mum. One of the girls is going as "made of money" (maid outfit with money stuck everywhere) and her husband is going to be "filthy rich" (not sure how they're doing that one)

    It would be so easy if I wasn't pregnant because I would dress up as a ballerina and I have heaps of other costumes. None work with a bump though

    How about a scientist? All you need is a lab coat over your own clothes and safety glasses. Don't worry if the coat doesn't button up over your bump, lots of folks in laboratories (especially supervisors) wear their coats open and only do them up when they're actually handling samples/chemicals. Or swap the glasses for a toy stethoscope and go as a Doctor?
