My sister and I went to the Thrift shops in the neighborhood not knowing what we were gonna do for Halloween costumes. So I started by picking up a pair of blue plaited polyester man's pants and a cool blue dress shirt.
Then we went over to the woman's section and picked up a really loud dress (black with big flowers that were multi colored and really bright, we were laughing soo hard. She added a pretty scarf from my closet along with a pair of blue snow boots, the kind with the fur..real old lady type.
We added some jewelry with beads, all different colors. We bought wigs for $5.00, a hat for me at the dollar store and some glasses. Then we added the walker and the bike basket with some flowers in it.
We had a ball with our oldtimers Halloween costume, we didn't win BUT when we sat at a table at the contest all the older people sat with us they thought we were really and old couple, when they found out I was a woman they were laughing so hard.
Comments for Coolest Oldtimers Halloween Costume 5
I am a Senior in high school and I decided to make a Homemade Senior Citizen Halloween Costume. The costume I have is really cheap and easy to do. All you have to do is find a long skirt and a knitted shawl and a white long sleeved blouse to wear under.
Then for my feet I wore really simple slippers and to make myself look really old. I sprayed white haircolor all over my hair and put make up that made me look old. I used the regular make-up: blush, eyepencil, lip pencil, eyeshadow, eye liner, lipstick and mascara. Then I wore eyeglasses. I also made a cane out of a PVC pipe and painted it black with a gold design on the handle.
For my hunched back I put a ball of cloth and secured it to my bra.
Every year my sorority has a Halloween themed meeting the Monday before Halloween. Your “family” all dresses in theme together. My family and I all visited a huge thrift store the week before where we found the jogging suits and glittery visors. We all stuffed the suits in various areas, had a deck of playing cards, and glasses. It would recommend this outfit for anyone with an outside party because it definitely keeps you warm!
I needed to make a costume because I was limited with money. I am a college student who wanted to be funny so I decided to put together an outfit my grandmother wore. I used all of her props and decided to be an old women. It was the best Halloween party ever because I was comfortable and made everyone laugh.
