Jozlyn is 3 years old. She loves pirates, princesses, pink, and black; so I decided to design and make her a Pirate Princess costume. She loves it and wants to wear it every day. One benefit of making your own costume is that it can be worn daily and survive even playgrounds.
The pettiskirt was made with 60 yards of nylon chiffon and requires a lot of patience. I made the corset and lined the back with rows of elastic to allow it to fit a child of any size. The hat is made from a black knitted beanie with a felt brim sewn on. I then tacked the hat up at 3 points to make the triangular captain’s hat. I attached a flower made from leftover ruffles and added a jewel to the center. I got lucky and found the tights at Wal-Mart. Striped tights are very hard to find but can be found online for $10 and up.

My wife and I wanted to dress up in costumes that we’ve never seen before so we decided to be the Pittsburgh Pirates Pierogies. When most people think about the Pittsburgh Pirates mascot they immediately think Pirate Parrot, but there are four others who should receive recognition.
During the 6th inning intermission, four Pierogies race through the city of Pittsburgh and finish down the first base line in PNC Park. The four pierogies are Jalapeño Hanna, Cheese Chester, Sauerkraut Saul and Oliver Onion. We constructed these costumes by utilizing cardboard, fabric, stuffing and plenty of glue. We created small windows in our costumes so that we could eat, drink and talk without taking off our costumes. We incorporated Velcro so that we could open and close these windows at will.
As an entirety, these two costumes only cost us $50. These costumes were the hit of our party and we’re confident that they can be the hit at yours.
We were invited to a pirate party in West Virgina. We dressed before we left and stopped at a rest stop on the way. What a hoot!
The Pirate costumes were made from a stop at the thrift store then the dollar store. Stripped shirts and dark pants were on the list. Cut jagged edges and Wal-Mart pirate scarves, beads and tattoos. My costume was a left over from when the kids were small. Fake teeth and a legging with wood like drawings completed the outfit.
My 8 yr old daughter Katelynn just couldn't wait to try this Homemade Dead Pirate on. Just a bunch of shredded clothes. I made a crocheted chain brown wig for the stringy hair look, liquid latex and toilet paper with the usual face paint, plastic bubba teeth and a spray bottle of blood, cobweb and a few spiders and a little imagination and "wala' your ordinary dead pirate zombie.
