Gypsy Halloween Costumes

Gypsy Costumes

The choice of wearing a Gypsy costume for Halloween is a good one. Whether true or not in real life, Gypsies are imagined to have colorful costumes and to be cloaked in mystery, which makes for a great theme for the season.

Part of this is due to the lifestyle chosen by Gypsies of living very private lives, giving occasion to rumors and gossip, enhancing their reputations for better or worse.

That imaginary concept of the Gypsy generates a lot of creative ideas for costumes, and include some wonderful color and concepts to have fun with.

A number of women decide to dress as a group of Gypsies, which is always a terrific experience to enjoy together. Some couples also choose Gyspy attire as a theme for their Halloween costumes.

This first photo is of a more modest Gypsy costume. It works because it's true to the genre, but you probably would only recognize it as Gypsy because of the head piece. The flared sleeves look really nice, as to the simple but pretty colors.

If you're crafty or creative at all, the Gypsy clothing style lends itself to fairly easy creations to make, as the woman below shows. Think in terms of some layers, the shawl, wrap around the waste, and the piece on the head, and you can put together a Gypsy costume that looks great and is cute. Oh, almost forgot, remember the beads too, as you see around her neck, as well as the jewelry bracelets. Combined, all of these elements make for a great Gypsy costume.

While I'm not convinced Gypsy women would be caught in this type of clothing, these women evidently think so, and are obviously having a lot of fun dressed together as a group. But ladies, you should have had the typical gypsy head piece to make it look official. They look more like belly dancers than Gypsies, but they don't seem to care, as they're having great fun dressing up as Gypsies together..
