What You Will Need

  • Scarf for head
  • Rollers
  • Fake glasses
  • House dress
  • Knee high panty hose
  • Sensible shoes
  • Handbag
  • Walker
  • Sign for walker
  • Pouches for sides of walker
  • Tennis balls
  • White spray for hair optional


  • Add pink curlers to your hair. You can also spray your hair white if desired but we did skip this step.
  • Add a scarf over hair.
  • Wear fake glasses. These can actually be purchased at a variety of stores these days as they are fashionable.
  • Add on a house dress. NOTE: I would definitely wear something under this!
  • Wear your knee highs but roll them down a bit to get the full effect.
  • You will want to grab a hand bag as well. We actually filled ours with a bit of butterscotch so the old lady could hand out candy!
  • Sensible shoes are a must in this case.
  • Find or borrow a walker from someone. I sewed two pouches for the sides. These can be used to gather your candy on Halloween.
  • We also found the old age sign at Hobby Lobby and zip tied it on the front. Look in the party section.
  • Don't forget the tennis balls on your walker as this really completes the look!
  • That is all! Your old lady Halloween costume is ready to wear.
