Hi,
Anyone have ideas for costumes for people who use a walker to get around? Creative things?

:-)

You could build a surround out of cardboard and make a lot of things.

If it were me I would make it into a Mack truck.

How about going as a grocery shopper? You could use the walker as part of a shopping cart and be shopping.

Use pieces of cardboard to build a haunted castle or haunted house and you can dress as frankentstein or a ghost or witch etc...looking out the window.
Or build it up into a haunted tree and you could be an owl.
Or it get a large stiff piece of cardboard to attach to the front, shaped and painted or colored to look like a coffin with a small opening for you to look out of. Old fashioned coffins used to have a little window, sometimes shaped like a bat with screening in.

You could also put some mountainous pictures on the walker and when people ask what you are, you could say "The Walker Mountains in Antarctica of course!" ;-)


Or some pictures of a lake and go as "Walker Lake" - there are a number of Walker Lakes out there.

How about putting a Texas Ranger (or other cowboy type costume) costume on and going as "Walker, Texas Ranger". :-)

That's a good one, SiteAdmin. A "walker Texas Ranger." That's funny. But on a serious note, how about a robot.

The robot would be a good one because it would take into account limited mobility.

I was also thinking that you could put some type of tray on the front of the walker, like a waiter's tray, and then go as a waiter or waitress.

Also, if you could get one of the airplane seat trays or something like it, you could go as an airplane seat with the tray folded down or as a really annoyed airplane passenger with the seat back in front of you folded down in your way.

Here are a few more:
1. How about french fries and a drink? The fries are the walker and the drink is you.
2. For someone on a respirator they could be a deep sea diver.
3. You could be a Christmas present. The box is opened and you are coming out as a doll or jack-in-the-box.

Here is a good one:

put a little model of a city on top of the walker, then dress up as Godzilla or some other monster coming towards the city about to CRUSH it.

For the walker texas ranger one...why not make the walker into a horse to go along with the cowboy costume?

OMG that is my FAVORITE IDEA ever.
You could go as a zombie, if you somehow attach a human doll to the front of your walker. You could slowly lurch towards him, hungry in your undeath!
