Hippie Halloween Costume Ideas
Is it the dawning of the age of Aquarius yet? Well, either way, why not join the drum circle and have a go at some of free love? Have your girl twirl around in her ankle skirt while you make a pretty flower child garland for her head. Thereís no better time to be a hippie than on Halloween. Here are some Hippie Halloween costume ideas:
Male Hippie - Groovy beard, man. If you donít have any facial hair, youíre going to have to grow some or get a fake beard at the party store because no self-respecting hippie ever shaves. The same goes with the hair on your head-it should be long and unkempt.
Find yourself a wig thatís a little on the ratty side. In many Halloween stores, you can find a pre-made hippie costume that comes with both. Other kinds of hair that a hippie may avoid grooming could enhance your costume, but itís up to you if you want to go there.
Next, find yourself a tie-dye shirt for that classic hippie look, or make yourself one if youíre crafty. Grab some ripped up jeans from the thrift store and youíre all set.
Female Hippie - You have a lot of options here, but just remember that the late 60ís were a colorful time. Try to find a psychedelic-looking baby-doll dress, or a peasant-style shirt with a colorful pair of bell bottoms. You could also try buying or making a patchwork skirt out of colorful fabric. If you donít have long hair, a wig is a must. Wear a headband or a garland of flowers on your head.
Accessories - Hippie accessories for both genders include peace sign necklaces, groovy John Lennon glasses, and unshaved armpits. Ready to party like itís 1967? Put on an awesome hippie costume this Halloween!
