My daughter decided to dress up as an old lady for halloween last year. Her costume was so simple and got laughs from almost every house we stopped at that night! My other daughter even complained that people were giving her sister more candy because they liked her costume so much! The greatest laugh was from the balloons we used for her chest and bum!! Also, it was quite a hoot to watch this "little old lady" run full speed from house to house while swinging her cane in the air! The best part of all was the price--only a couple of dollars for the hairspray. The rest we were able to find around the house or borrow from grandma!


gray hairspray
"old lady" style dress
cane or walker
4 balloons (blown up only part way)
tennis shoes


  • Style hair and spray all over with gray or white hairspray. Blow up balloons to desired size for chest and bum. Pick out an old lady style dress and put "chest and bum" in place. Tie apron around waist.

  • Be careful not to blow up bum balloons to big since they tend to ride up as the evening wears on!

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your costume is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
