random question (not food or politically relevant)

**UPDATE**

I posted some pics from the party here:

I ended up using a plus size shaper slip stuffed with a couch pillow
and I realized the next day that I left the baby at the bar; somehow sadly appropriate

and interestingly enough, the bartender asked if I was really pregnant and I felt like if I had been he wouldn't have served me.  It was a private party for the first couple of hours, then open to the public after 11 and I got more then a few disapproving looks and stares when they opened the doors.  Kind of an interesting vision of the perception of the mother.

anyway, we had a ball and stayed up way too late.

Will and I are attending a Hollywood theme party next week; we have decided to dress as Britney and K-Fed.

My idea is to stuff my shirt, no bra, lots of eye-liner, carry a doll around with me and smoke a lot.  I wish you could all see Will in his do-rag, undershirt and baby-blue NNY cap.  I'll post pix when all is said and done.

My question:  I'm not sure how to stuff my shirt.  My initial thought was to saran-wrap a throw pillow to my mid-section and pull a fitted tank over it.  I need it to stay in place for a while and it would be nice if it were comfortable...
Anyone faked a pregnancy before?

how about using a TIGHT TIGHT tank under the tank to hold the pillow in place? or an ace bandage wrap. i imagine plastic wrap being sweaty and uncomfortable. perhaps a pair of maternity underwear/pants to help support the pillow/smooth things out?

but it is refreshing you are doing brit/kfed when they WERE a couple. now you would have to, uh, remove all body hair and wear short shirts and skimpy tops. and look like you are on the verge of a breakdown.

;D I sometimes wished my  children were faking it, but they were always in there.

Possibly an oversized leotard under your clothes, with that stuffed? The saran wrap sounds like it might work, but be really uncomfortable. I would anitcipate perspiration and itchiness around your back.

hehehe, let me tell you, this costume concept has generated a LOT of ideas around here, most are utterly inappropriate and I simply don't have the balls to try some...

;) ahhhh, the Great Panty Debate.

thank God we only have a smattering of the *issues* that these two poor souls possess...

you guys are right about the plastic wrap.

I need bigger boobs...

I second the Ace bandage idea.  I think it will create a sturdy and smooth shape and will be more comfortable and adjustable if necessary throughout the party.

Maybe you could put a pair of panties in your purse, so they're visibly hanging out, to insinuate that you are not wearing them.

Not to sound dumb; but what would lavender and tea tree oil do?

hehehe

a skin colored leotard, so your belly could hang out under your shirt? (Or am I thinking of someone else?)

I did a show where I had to be pregnant for a few scenes (a musical no less so I had to dance with my giant belly!) and I found a hideous, yellow maternity bathing suit to stuff!  It kept things all in the right places and looked pretty realistic... or least reaiistic enough to freak out my mother!

er uh..now your going to have to shave your head to be Brit  ;D

yeah, I just saw that also... she went into a beauty shop and asked to have her head shaved.  The lady wouldn't do it but handed the clippers to Brittney and the hair is gone!  :D

reading the responses, what about some pantyhose that are big? you could pull them up over the pillow and use it to smooth stuff out

I think the bathingsuit idea would work well.  That should hold whatever your stuffing high & in place better than pantyhose, which might droop or expell your load unexpectedly...
you could also stuff your top then, too, but that's up to you.

yikes, that's, er, graphic ;)

the leotard/bathing suit idea is a great one.  the tank/panty hose works, but your afore mentioned warning was definately a concern.

still sorting it out...

thanks for the link, gotskates, I almost spit my coffee thru my nose reading the order form.
I don't have an extra $500 for the costume, however the "weighted vinyl bladder w/ conditioner and repair kit" has earned enough "unintentionally visual" points to get printed and hung on the studio wall for a while.  :)

I have a few friends who have been recently pregnant and I'm hoping they still have some bathing suits lying around.

I tried one of my bodysuits last night...laughable really. darn snaps  ;)
