Pirate Costumes

The Clothes: The clothes serve as a "base layer" which you can accessorize over to complete the outfit!

  • Pants - The pants will preferably be black, although gray and brown are also options. Tight or baggy will do. Cut the bottoms of the legs off, in a zig zag pattern to look old and worn out, so that they are just below the knee.

  • Skirts - A skirt for female pirate costumes can be long(peasant-type) or short. To make it look tattered and old, take some scissors and tear up the bottom to cut it shorter and to make it look tattered and old.

  • Shirt - Find a white long sleeved button-up shirt - the baggier the better. Since pirates weren't always the cleanest of people, try and stain it up a little bit and even tear it in certain areas. If you are able to locate a long-sleeved white shirt that has ruffles on the cuffs and maybe even a Victorian style ruffle on the collar, then you are very lucky! This would suit a pirate costume well!

  • Rings, earings, medallions, jewels.
  • Bandana - to be worn under or instead of ye pirate hat

  • Spyglass
  • Hook
  • Peglegs
  • Missing Limbs-- Tuck an arm or leg into your outfit.
  • Missing teeth-- use tooth blackout
  • Gold teeth
  • Gold Coins
  • Swords
  • Pirate Pistols
  • Fisnet or pirate stockings
  • Tattoos-- Download Some Pirate Tattoos
  • Belt - the wider the better! Don't forget a BIG buckle.
  • Pirate sashes -simply tie a long scarf (or piece of fabric) around your waist.
  • Boots
  • Vest - red, black or striped should do!

Where to Find All of It: Finding all of these items for homemade pirate costumes is much easier than you might think, and much cheaper as well!

  • Your Own House - Check out your own house and closet. You never know when you might have an article of clothing or accessory that will suit your costume just fine!

  • Local Thrift Store - Go to places like the Salvation Army and Goodwill and any other stores in your area that are secondhand and dig in! You would be surprised at what you can find in these establishments! You may even be able to find boots and other accessories.

  • Garage Sale - This is similar to going to a thrift store--the only difference is you are most likely going to pay even less! You might find a shirt or pants for 25 cents, and who can argue with that?

  • Toy Store - The last place you will need to go to is a toy store, primarily for the sword. This can be found anywhere from Wal-Mart to the dollar store!

  • ONLINE COSTUME STORE - There are some items that may be harder to find--such as the hat--that you may need to look at a costume store for. Shopping online saves time and often money.
