How to Find the Coolest Pirate Costumes

Ahoy, mates! Nowadays, pirate costumes are one of the most enticing outfit choices during Halloween and other occasions that call for a bit of spark. Although a pirate costume might seem too elaborate, making your costume realistic is actually easy.

Remember these treasured tips so that you can become a Jack Sparrow in no time.
For men, the basics include pants and a long-sleeved top. The bottoms typically come in black or brown so that the look is grungy. As for the long sleeves, they need to have a wide and open neck portion. You may top it with a light brown vest for a more authentic look. Boots are always a must for every pirate costume. Don’t forget the final touches like a large-buckled belt, pirate’s hat, attachable hoop earrings, black eye patch, and even a wig. If you don’t have a wig, just go for a bandana. You may even roll one of your sleeves up and put a fake tattoo on your forearm.

As for women, just switch the pants to a long light skirt with uneven hem. Wear cropped tattered pants underneath the skirt. Peasant tops with tight bodices are the suggested pirate costumes for women because they accentuate the chest area and play down the waist area. Women can go all out with accessories like layered bangles, large hoop earrings, and a lot more.

The hair can be let down or braided as long as it will not appear too polished. Pirates are often journeying which is why they have a ragged appeal

    I don’t bother buying pirate costumes. I just use online shops to get idea. Then I create my own. Its much more fun. I buy all sorts of accessories to make the outfit complete and the end result is always unique.

    cant believe how cheap some of these are. Amazon is killer for prices. God help the independent trader of costumes

    Rather cheeky styles coming up under costumes. Probably crossing the line between good honest partywear and adult sauciness.
