Well… after my inspired ideas for making a Hannah Montana costume, my daughter has CHANGED HER MIND. We are now on the hunt for a Gypsy Princess costume for Halloween. Our first Halloween Party is this weekend.. and will need to get the Halloween costume together in next few days. Here is what I have come up with so far:
Making Your Own Gypsy Costume
White Peasant Blouse/Shirt for a Top : This will tough for us to find… It is COLD right now and no clue where I will find. Our small town does not have a gypsy apparel shop. I feel this might be make or brak for the costume. I may just take mans white shirt and use elastics on arms to get a poof effect.
Vest: Also hard to find- but we will go to second hand stores to look. Wish me luck on this one.
Black Wig: Would be nice to have.. may have to settle on using a curling iron.
Silk scarf for Head: Have ton of these left over from the 80’s.
Gold Hoop earrings. Got these.
Bangles for wrists and Lots of beaded necklaces: Thank God for the dollar store.
Tiered skirt or Full flowing skirt. Yay! We have some of these.
Eye makeup- will most likely go nuts with eye make-up and mascara… red lipstick, etc.
