Find Your Women's Gypsy Fortune Teller Costume Ideas

If you're looking for women's costume ideas, a fortune teller gypsy costume is a great choice. There are many reasons why buying or making a gypsy or fortune teller costume can be a fun experience. You will find that some people refer to them as gypsies, while others refer to them as fortune tellers. In actuality, a gypsy is someone known for their skills in dancing and music in general, while fortune tellers of course, tell other people's fortunes.

Gypsies can also tell fortunes, which is where the two get confused. Either way you look at it, the costumes are exactly the same. Both gypsies and fortune tellers would move around, not often having a "home" but offering their various skills to townspeople. Both gypsies and fortune tellers often went barefoot, but you can choose to wear sandals with your costume.
