You can also add pieces from a quick trip to your nearest Thrift or Second Hand store to complete a great costume. I'll be giving you many many ideas to use in the "Last Minute Costumes" series, here's the first round:

.Ultimate Fan.

Gypsy - Fortune Teller Costume

This is an easy as pie costume that either males or females could easily do. You can either choose someone who you actually like but it would be a lot funnier to pick someone people know you dislike. You could also go for someone cheesy like Yanni, Michael Bolton, Andy Dick or Richard Simmons. Or something funny like a cartoon character or something off the wall like a type of food or board game. Just take a note from football fans and take it over the top!

What You Need:
- Buttons
- Tattoos
- T-Shirt
- 8x10 Poster

You can easily make home-made buttons with some glue, printed pictures, cardboard and safety pins. You can either draw tattoos on yourself or have a friend help, take a plain T-Shirt and deck it out with markers and print your own 8x10 poster of your choice.
