Is it Captain Hook or Jack Sparrow you be looking to dress as, Matey?
Take a look at these famous pirate characters from Pirates of the Caribbean or the famous kids movie, Peter Pan, and get some ideas on costumes and make up to use when you assemble your homemade costume.
-Large gold hoop earring (clip-on, if unpierced ears)
-Dark old pants
-White puffy shirt
-Wire coat hanger
Make sure you have all the materials you need to assemble your costume before you begin. It is much easier to have everything on hand and ready to use rather than have to keep stopping to go and get what you need.
How to put the costume together:
1. Use the scissors to cut the bottom of each pant leg at the cuff and go up and down in a zigzag motion. Cut until
they appear old and worn out.
2. Put on the the white puffy shirt and add the vest over the top of it.
3. Add the long belt or tie the sash around the waist.
4. Tie the bandana on the side of the head, covering one ear.
Here are some fun ideas for costume accessories to match your buccaneer disguise.
5. Put the earring in the ear not covered by the bandana.
6. Cover the eye with the patch or the dark make-up.
7. Bend the wire hanger into the shape of a hook and cover with the tin foil.
8. Put on the glove and hold the hook in your covered hand.
The pirate costume with the hook is a great outfit to match someone's Tinkerbell costume if you like the idea of a couples costume.
Choose a pirate name for yourself. Make it rugged and gruff...I might be "Porthole" Juliana Barbossa" or "Ratu Rosanna Buston." You also have to remember, if you are going to walk the walk...talk the talk...remember to say ahoy, matie, shiver me timbers, arrggg, and aye alot while you have this outfit on. Grab a bottle of pirate's rum and if you have a stuffed parrot tie it to your shoulder.
