Hippie fancy dress costume!

Hi all,

I'm going to a fancy dress at the end of the month and want to go as a "hippie"! I have the flowery top, round purple glasses and I'm planning on tie- dying a pair of trousers and sewing in some flares to match the top.
What sort of jewelry should I wear?

And I have mid- length brown hair, I was thinking of doing two plaits with a headband, or should I leave it down and wavy?

Make up is another thing I don't know how to incorporate! Any suggestions?

Also- I would love to get some peace sign/ "flower power" tattoo transfers- does anyone know where I can get these in Dublin city centre?

Thanks for your ideas in advance!!!

Lots of wooden braclets or lots of beads or even better both!

For make-up I would say, really really natural but mabye paint a flower on your cheek.
You can get face-paints in most costume shops/toy shops.

Try Georges arcade for transfers or that costume shop of stephens green beside the Gaiety?
If not you could use the fave paints or a marker!

You could wear the hairband with wavy hair depending how long you hair is it might look better with plaits.

Hope its fun!
