last minute pirate costume idea: pirate hat (from Affordable Treasures Los Gatos-also love this one online) / large golden hoop earrings / lipstick c/o Bobbi Brown “Plum” / black v-neck tee / suede fringe vest / leather and rose gold watch / nail polish c/o Londontown “Bell Flower” / red and black stripe pirate pants / pirate sword (similar here) / black boots (old, also love this pair)
It’s entirely possible my kids really loved the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie this summer. So much so, that they decided our whole family would dress up as pirates for Halloween; except for my teenager who is going to be a Pusheen.
This is the first time we have all coordinated our costumes; minus my teenager. It’s been really fun putting pirate costumes together, so much so that I had to make a last minute pirate costume for myself! I went to Affordable Treasures in Los Gatos and picked up this hat, these pants, and this sword. If you’re interested in dressing as a last minute pirate too, I linked to the pants above, and a similar sword, and similar hat.
A pirate costume is really easy to make. You can use any black or stripe pants you might already own, black boots, a black tee (which I’m sure you own), gold hoops earrings (if you don’t own a pair-grab this pair, they are so lightweight and amazing!), and a black vest. My vest is from last year but I managed to find it online here. The only “big ticket” item you need to complete the look is that hat. The sword is really inexpensive.
My cute little nine-year-old son took these photos. He did a pretty good job! Instead of “say cheese!” he kept saying “say arrrrrrrrrh!” while he was snapping the photos. I think you can see the amusement in my face. haha
