My name is Carol Hughes. I've owned Custom Costumes of Rochester for 25 years now. Today, I'm going to demonstrate some basics of costuming to you. How to dress like a 70s hippie. Well basically you can start with a pair of bell bottom ratty jeans. From there you can go to those real pointy necked shirts or a Dashiki or a T-shirt, preferably a tie dyed T-shirt. If you don't have those on hand, you could probably pick them up at a thrift store or the local consignment shop. You can put on the peace symbol. You can put on beggar beads from Vietnam or just any long strands of beads. For a girl you want long stringy hair, straight usually and for the boys they do shoulder length hair and a beard or you can do an afro because they were big into that. That would go with the Dashiki and my name is Carol Hughes, and that's how you dress like a hippie from the 70s.
