Pirate costumes are always a great choice for a Halloween costume. The portrait of a pirate has certain elements which come together and form an image of a bawdry, shabby and inebriated scalawag – and that allows you to have great fun getting in character at Halloween.
Pirates are looked upon as rough, evil characters who spread mischief for a living. They are a form of depravity in society.
However, they are not mythical creatures but actually exist in the real world. They are man’s worst form on water.
These pirates have innumerable dissipations and these buccaneers are one of the media’s favorite villains. That’s why you’ll want to dress (and act) like one this Halloween.
Being dressed as a pirate for Halloween is not news to anyone. It is one of the more popular choices amongst many.
However, this popularity is not just because the portrayal fits in perfect with the concept of Halloween.
The attention media has brought to pirates, especially the one in Pirates of the Caribbean, has engraved a special place in the hearts of many – giving costume makers a chance to really show their creative flair.
Today, finding a perfect pirate costume is not difficult in any capacity. Almost all the costume makers have pirates’ costumes, although the variety varies, depending on the size of the shop.
The most common costume consists of lose, torn clothes, with a pirate hat and a parrot or a bottle of rum. This fits with the common perception of pirates.
In general, there is quite a lot of variety for you if you are a pirate fan and are looking forward to becoming one for Halloween.
The very generic ones include the basic concept of pirates molded into different costumes. Some of which have eye patches, while others have hidden faces.
They are also given fancy names like ‘plundering pirate,’ ‘rogue pirate,’ and ‘captain cutthroat.’
Since the basic concept of being a pirate is an individual who spends most of the time traveling across oceans, washing clothes in salty water and hardly finding any time for personal hygiene, the spectrum of possibilities that costume makers have at their disposal is wide.
Luckily, this diminishes the possibility of you and you friend ending up at a Halloween party, wearing the same costume. You can even go as a group of swashbucklers.
The other type of pirates’ costumes are the ‘inspired’ ones. Captain Jack Sparrow is a household name, thanks to Johnny Depp’s impeccable display of the character from the Pirates of the Caribbean, which was initially popularized by Disneyland ride by the same name.
Ever since, whenever people think of pirates they think of the characters from the movie. At least in our generation, they do.
Costume shops which sell such costumes hardly miss having costumes of the characters of the movie, whether it is Jack Sparrow, Blackbeard or Will Turner.
Furthermore, the costumes are not just called ‘Jack Sparrow costume’ or ‘Blackbeard costume’ but have given different names like ‘Jack Sparrow Deluxe’ and ‘Jack Sparrow Men Plus.’
This even furthers the already extensive range, giving people choices over choices to choose, according to their liking.
The range allows you to be able to dress as these rogue buccaneers, regardless of your taste and budget.
A pirate costume is not amongst those costumes which hang around in your closet year-round and get fresh air on Halloween only.
It can be used for different theme events and parties. This increased demand also ensures that you do not find it difficult to pick out your size.
We can conclude that if you are a pirate fan, you’ll count the days to October 31st with anticipation.
