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.


  1. 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.Dress%20Up%20As%20a%20Fortune%20Teller%20or%20Gypsy%20for%20Halloween%20Step%201%20Version%202.jpg
  2. Next, get a long skirt, preferably with a bohemian type motif. The skirt should reach your ankles.Dress%20Up%20As%20a%20Fortune%20Teller%20or%20Gypsy%20for%20Halloween%20Step%202%20Version%202.jpg
  3. 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.Dress%20Up%20As%20a%20Fortune%20Teller%20or%20Gypsy%20for%20Halloween%20Step%203%20Version%202.jpg
  4. 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.Dress%20Up%20As%20a%20Fortune%20Teller%20or%20Gypsy%20for%20Halloween%20Step%204%20Version%202.jpg
