Any loose blouse, especially an off-shoulder top made from a lightweight material, is a good choice for a fortune teller costume. When choosing skirts, go for long, layered ones and avoid form-hugging skirts. Layer several skirts with varying lengths, and finish the look with a large, bright scarf.

When tying a scarf around your head, let the edges of the scarf hang at the back of your head or on one side. Create a skullcap appearance by tying a square bandanna. Wear soft leather sandals with stone decorations, or select knee-high leather boots that look natural.

To complete your fortune teller costume, prepare tarot cards, a belt pouch and a crystal ball. A paper plate tambourine is another eye-catching gypsy accessory. Carry a black cat with you if you have one to make your gypsy fortune teller costume more interesting.
