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!
