How to Dress Up As a Fortune Teller or Gypsy for Halloween
Do you want to be a Gypsy or Fortune Teller for Halloween or a costume party? If so, then this article is for you.
First, acquire a turban. Black is a good color to get for this. If you don't want to bother with a turban for the whole night, wrap a plain red scarf around your head.
Next, get a long skirt, preferably with a bohemian type motif. The skirt should reach your ankles.
After that, buy a shirt that looks like it could be part of a pirate costume. Many costume shops sell these. If you have a loose, white, cottony blouse, that will work as well.
Get a thick brown belt. Wear your skirt high-waisted, and tuck your shirt into it. Wrap the belt around where the skirt meets the shirt.
Brown boots are excellent footwear for a fortune teller/gypsy costume.
Add large, chunky necklaces, but not too many or it will look tacky. Make sure it matches your clothes and that there are not very bright.
Brown bracelets or anything that matches the theme (beads are a good choice for bracelets too) around your wrists.
Finally, rings. Nothing with a big stone, just plain metal that looks authentic.
For makeup, add eyeliner and blush. For your costume, depending on the color and other variables, red lipstick may look good.
Finally, items like tarot cards complete the look.
