I thought I would try and put together a Halloween costume from my own closet.
As I get older, its less likely I dress up.
And even less likely that I want to spend a great deal on a costume I wear once.
So I tried pulling a Pirate costume together from my own closet.
If your out of time and in a pinch.. this post is for you!
The first thing I did was google “Pirate chick” for some inspiration.
What does a girl pirate look like?
There are two types:
What makes a pirate costume:
– Leather skinnies / full skirt
– Puffy Blouse
– Sailor Hat / Bandanna
My Pirate Look
I choose a plaid skirt and boots as the staples to build off.
I found my most puffy blouse, and vested it for a corset look.
I added a bedazzled headband as a bandanna.
A rope belt to give a nod to the “sailor” feel.
Then i picked up a bottle of rum
“why is the rum always gone” – captain sparrow.
Make up and hair:
I made my eyes as dark and sloppy as possible.
Then I was liberal with my blush to give a dirt/sun filled skin look.
Lastly I made my hair coarse then added a random braid.
All together I think its not that bad!
What do you think?
Would people be able to figure out I was a pirate?
