So what makes a pirate costume ?
Most pirate costumes that people like to dress up in today are inspired by the Golden Age of Piracy in the 17 th century. This period has been generally romanticized and polished up by countless pieces of literature such as Treasure Island and many of the myths and legends passed down and recorded in books like “A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the most notorious Pyrates”. This lead has been followed by Hollywood movies with the likes of Errol Flynn and Johnny Depp as popular heroes/anti-heroes. The latest and probably most popular of all time being the Pirates of The Caribbean trilogy of movies
The reality of the time was not quite as benign as the myths and the pirates were viewed by the authorities at the time as ruthless, bloodthirsty thugs. Most were hunted down and not many lived to tell their tales into old age. But heck, lets not get too miserable…you’re looking for a costume to do some swashbuckling in !
A typical pirates costume should have :
an eye patch,
a pirates hat,
boots with large cuffs,
a jacket would be nice,
a puffy shirt,
belts and buckles,
a pistol and cutlass,
and wild hair and beard.
And pirates aren’t just men either, there are many adult pirate costumes for women too.
Women’s pirate costumes tend to vary from the authentic looking to the sexy and fantasy type outfits.
The authentic costumes have many of the elements of the male pirate costume, so you will find the hat, eye patch, waistcoat, belts and buckles and the rest. She may have a skirt in place of pants but that’s about the only difference.
The sexy outfits are verging on the wench like look. They are colorful, body hugging outfits that are sure to get your guests or other party goers all a flustered. They are flirty and titillating and guaranteed to have maximum impact.
