Ideas for dessing up as a cranky old lady for halloween?

I'd like to be that stock cranky old lady with the horned-rim glasses for halloween. She's often in cheesy comics/cartoons, but I don't know where she originates from. Anyhow, suggestions for how to do this?

I know, this should be an easy costume but I'm just not great at these things.So far I plan to wear:
- bathrobe and horrible loose clashy nightgown
- maybe big, low hanging boobs, maybe not
- hair in curlers
- horned-rim glasses preferably with gemstones
- Is there some way to give my reddish brown hair a blue/purple tint?
- What do I wear for makeup?
- What cranky things can I say?
- What props would be good (I often see her with a rolling pin, or cigarette, or a drink)
