You can make a gypsy costume using clothing and jewelry you probably already own. You might have to buy an accessory or two, but most people will have most of the bright clothing you need for a gypsy or gipsy costume. The Roma or Romany, as some call the gypsies, are a nomadic, free spirited people who may have come from Egypt and who travel in caravans or circus type groups. The idea of a gypsy caravan traveling around the countryside working as entertainment troupes and fortune tellers is a very exotic and romantic life style. It makes the idea of a gypsy costume rather exciting.
When you are making your costume use the loose peasant or poet shirts, longs flowing skirt (or skirts...wear two and hike one up to make it look layered), lots of colorful gold chains and jewelry. Exotic eye makeup...lots of black around the eyes with bright colored eye shadow. Perhaps a beauty mark somewhere near the corner of your lip and some red lipstick, nail polish and toe nail polish.
