It all started with my wife making me go to a "Work" pirate party, so I figured if I had to dress up I was going to use my ADHD and make the best Pirate costume there.

I did buy costumes and almost every pirate item on the web and then took pieces from each and cut apart fabrics to combine the most authentic looks. The Livingroom was a disaster for almost 3 weeks. I would watch all the Pirates of the Caribbean every night as I created the costume, or I should say costumes with as many times as I'd come up with a new idea and change everything.

I used a whole bag of 50 glue sticks as I can't sew at all, I created the wig from five different wigs and I used 10 glue sticks just on it. I spent hours at craft stores looking thru fabrics and items, as women looked at me with wonder since I was the only man ever there.

I won a camera for first place at my wife's work party and then Halloween came 2 months later and after another complete redo because of more ideas I thought of, my costume was done (I thought). We went to Vegas that Halloween and I must have taken over a 100 pictures with people, it was a real thrill and I'm addicted to all the attention now. I can't wait for this Halloween and of course I have already changed the costume more for this year and I've had to promise my wife that I'm finished (maybe).

Our 3 year old decided he wanted to be a pirate for Halloween, so we bought both him and his 1 year old younger brother, Andre, pirate costumes. Since we usually take them trick-or-treating around town and around our neighborhood, we wanted to take them in their wagon... But a red wagon just doesn't go with a pirate costume?. We also wanted to turn 3 hours of candy picking into maybe one hour or so. So we made a 'costume' for their wagon as well!

We dressed up their wagon as a pirate ship, and it made their costume so much better! Not only were they a big hit, but it was like having our own little Halloween parade around town! It was all made by us with materials we had at home, anything from cardboard, to PVC pipes, chain links, and aluminum foil. The skeleton on the flag and sail were painted by hand looking at a picture, without using stencils! It's our first project of this nature, so we're very proud of the outcome!

I used Simplicity patterns 3663 and 2834 for this Homemade Lady Buccaneer Pirate with her Parrot Couple Costume .

The Parrot.
I used red fleece for the main part of the costume. I then hand sewed 7 red feather boas, 1 blue boa and 1 yellow boa. It took hours and hours of hand sewing.

The Lady Buccaneer Pirate.
Jacket: I used a shaded heavy black flannel for the jacket. I added gold braid on the collar and around the bottom edge of the jacket. I added lace to the sleeves at the wrists.

Dress: I used black and white striped satin for the bottom of the dress and white satin for the bodice. I added a piece of lace across the front of the bodice.
