DIY Fortune Teller Gypsy Halloween Women’s Costume
Many moons ago, 2001 to be exact, I created an eBay account. The concept was genius: auction-style and “buy it now” listings for anything you could possibly want or need in your life. Even those hard-to-find items, like vintage decor, retro dresses, or one-of-a-kind collections. I was hooked! I even created a business buying and selling for years (a proud Power Seller, in fact) before I entered the blogging world.
I’m still a loyal eBay customer, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to partner with eBay on creating a costume for this Halloween. This was a chance to get really creative with one of my favorite shopping platforms, too!
Figuring out a Halloween costume was the hardest part because there are SO MANY possibilities, especially with eBay at your fingertips. One thing that I kept in mind while thinking of my costume was purchasing pieces that I could also integrate into my everyday wardrobe. My style is already boho-inspired, so a fortune teller or gypsy made a whole lotta sense to me!
WHAT I PURCHASED
For each item I bought, I used the “Buy it Now” feature so that I could get the items as soon as possible. Here is what I purchased:
BLACK Gothic Belly Dancer Dance Dancing Gypsy SILVER COIN HIP SCARF SHIMMY BELT – $19.99 w/ FREE shipping
4 Pcs Gold Head Chain Jewelry For Women Gypsy Bollywood Halloween Indian Headband – $18.99 w/ FREE shipping
WOMEN’s SKIRT INDIAN GYPSY BOHO PEASANT BOLLYWOOD DANCE SEQUINS MAXI Skirt 1size – $19.99 w/ FREE shipping
Womens Ladies Low Mid Block Heels Booties Ankle Boots Zipper Shoes Wedge Pumps – $20.99 w/ FREE shipping
5-Piece Ring Set, Witchy Gypsy Bohemian Boho Hippie Style, Geometric Midi-Rings – $7.09 w/ FREE shipping
Gypsy Costume 3-Coin Hook Earrings, Bohemian Boho Ethnic Turkish Jewelry – $4.09 w/ FREE shipping
To finish the look, I purchased these coin dangle earrings, which added more jingle and depth to my costume.
My top is simply a white lace bra that I already had in my closet. Other options for tops include a peasant top, a cami, or tank top.
For makeup, I went with dark gray eyeshadow, dark red lipstick and lots of dark eyeliner. For hair, I used a flat iron to create beach waves. Easy peasy!
Fun, right? And now I have fun jewelry and clothing pieces that I can wear every day, too.
