There’s no denying that a pirate costume is the perfect 18th century costume with a dash of criminal ruthlessness and dandy flair. Loveable rogues like Jack Sparrow have made a buccaneer the go-to dressing up choice for many fans. Recent additions to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise have even tempted rock royalty like the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards and Paul McCartney from the Beatles and Wings.

For most of us today a pirate costume is a means of connecting with a sense of adventure – beyond the land and the law. Of course that adventure is only boosted my the prospect of immense wealth, whether pillaged from merchant ships or found buried on a remote island.

Pirate costumes also present ample opportunities both for buying a readymade Halloween costume and making your own DIY pirate costume for cheap so you can save a few doubloons.
