The story is a bit stale now, but it was a rather bizarre story at the time. This will also be the first Halloween since the birth of the octuplets. Here is some basic information in case you are not aware of it all. Nadya Suleman was a mother with no income or husband yet had kids. She lived with her parents and got food stamps and disability benefits. This was not enough for her so she decided that she wanted more kids. She proceeded to get embryos implanted in her, which resulted in eight more babies in addition to the ones she already had and could barely take care of. To each their own, but I do believe it very irresponsible to have children you are unable to take care of. In her case they were produced by in-vitro fertilization. The fact that it was not natural and she could not take care of what she had caused public outrage when news broke.
This would definitely be one of the funny costumes that some people would wear this year. There are a couple ways you could go about it. You can use a wig for the long black hair unless you happen to have long dark hair. For the face you have a couple more options. The first thing you can do is just slightly make yourself up and use lipstick to make your lips look much larger. The average person would draw a line about a half inch above and below your normal lip line and color it all with the lipstick. Another thing you could do is get some fake scar skin and shape it to look like lips above and below your normal lips. You then color that in with lipstick.
I would just use some jogging pants and a blouse for the clothes. Black would probably be the best color. She dressed very plain, so you don’t want anything that looks to sexy. She always looked a bit chunky, so I would get them a bit baggy and slightly stuff various parts of it. With regard to the babies you can base it off of prior to her having the babies or after giving birth. For prior to the birth you just want to make the stomach look very heavily stuffed. You could wear a shirt that says something like future mom to the eight degree. If you decide to base the costume on after she had the babies I would use one of two ways. The first thing is that you could use a stroller stuffed with eight doll babies. Another thing you could do is make a back pack and make sure there is a way to stick eight baby heads out of it. The point of those is that you will be lugging the babies everywhere with you. For a little satire you could put fake food stamps someplace on your costume or welfare checks. Many have speculated that she will be getting a huge amount of public assistance for the next eighteen years as it would be nearly impossible for her to work.
That is how you make an octomom costume. It is not politically correct, but funny as anything.
Some online places that you can find some things for your costume.
