Pirate Costume: Ideas
Depending on one’s time, budget, and talent, pirate costumes can be elaborate or simple. You can buy a variety of costumes, but if you want one that is tailored to a specific colour scheme or size, consider making your own pirate costume. Look through pattern books at your local fabric store for costume ideas, or consider these alternatives.

Pirate Costume: Looks
The captain was the ship’s commander, the man behind the wheel, and the guy with his booty all over his body. The captain needed to be cunning and ruthless rather than refined. It should be noted that women can be pirate captains as well! For the costume, avoid wearing a form-fitting top. You can find a tuxedo shirt at local thrift stores and costume shops (especially after Halloween when everything goes on sale). Wear a man’s white dress shirt if you can’t find a tuxedo shirt. Here’s how it’s done: Put on the tuxedo shirt.
Attach a white lace handkerchief to the neck with a fancy gold pin. To complete the look, sew a lace ribbon to the shirt’s cuffs. The refined pirate captain frequently wore knee breeches: Put on a pair of plain white dress socks or white women’s stockings. Squeeze into a pair of several sizes too small black sweatpants. Pull the elastic cuffs all the way down to just below the knee. High boots were not usually worn by captains who wore breeches: Wear a low-ankle boot or loafer-style shoe. Rubbing dust on the boots or shoes will distress them.
Notes To Remember
Most pirates preferred the traditional tricorn hat. When worn on the head, a tricorn resembles a triangle. A costume shop or dollar store can provide you with a suitable hat at a low cost. The scalawag was the deckhand, cannon loader, and crow’s nest occupant. He was filthy, messy, and dishevelled, with a mean demeanour.
A deckhand, unlike a captain, was not concerned with appearing in command. Choose a shirt with a tunic style or a jersey knit. A dark-colored satin shirt can also work for this costume. Remove the buttons and sew the shirt shut. Remove the collar by cutting it off with scissors (don’t worry about being too precise).Remove the cuffs in the same way you removed the collar. Cut a 6 inch slit from the neckline to the bottom of the chest. Make shoelace holes on both sides of the split shirt. Lace the shoelaces through the holes just like you would a shoe. Tatter the shirt’s bottom and add strategically placed holes, slits, dirt, or dark paint. Rubbing some shoes in dirt will scuff and discolour them. You could also go barefoot if there are no safety concerns and the weather permits.
