Avast ye, matey! So Halloween is coming and you want to dress like a pirate, eh? Well pirating is serious business, so pirates have to look good while they sail the seven seas.

Buccaneers and Lobsters are giving away Pirate hats, swords, pistols, eyepatches, and bandannas to help you with your costume! Simply visit our forums and answer the simple question to be in with a chance to win
Old black trousers or jeans. You want them to have a snug fit and then cut them off just below the knee. You can pull and fray the ends to give them a ragged look.
If you wish to dress up like a female pirate all you need to do is get a black skirt instead of trousers. Skirts can be either long or short. If you want a short skirt it is best to get something knee length so that you can take some scissors and tear up the bottom to cut it shorter and to make it look tattered and old.
Any colour but preferably white. You want to avoid a work or school shirt. If you can find one with frills on the front or cuffs thats perfect!
This bit is easy. Nearly any vest or waistcoat will do. Try and avoid designs unless they fit the costume.
Black or brown leather, no laces. If you dont have boots Black loafers or Oxfords will do, the more scuffed the better.
Hat or Bandanna:
A pirate never leaves home without their trusty headgear! Ideally youre looking for a tricorner hat but anything that looks piratey will do. Wear a bandanna under it for the real pirate look. If you have longer hair you can put a few braids in it.
Belt or Sash:
Brown or black leather belt, the bigger the buckle the better. For a sash the best thing to do is tie a scarf around your waist.
Earrings and Jewelry:
Pirates loved to show off their bling! If you have your ears pierced you might want to wear big gold hoops.
No pirate would dream of going anywhere without their trusty cutlass. A toy sword is best but you can make your own out of cardboard.
