If you don't slap on a fake goatee, you're not trying hard enough!

How to Make a Pirate Costume Out of Clothes You Have

When it comes to Halloween costumes the pirate costume is an old classic. Pirate costumes are easy to find in stores, and even easier to put together at home. In fact, if you need a Halloween costume in a pinch it is one of your best options. Best of all, to make a homemade pirate costume you do not need any craft or sewing skills, just a little high seas fashion advice!

    Things You'll Need

    • Button Up Shirt
    • Pants or Skirt
    • Vest
    Show (8) More

    Instructions

      • 1

        Find a standard button up shirt. A blouse or dress shirt works fine. Shirts with ruffles or puffy sleeves also work great. Use tea to stain the shirt, to make it look more worn and dirty. To do this just put a few tea bags in hot bath water and soak the white shirt for a few hours. Ring the shirt out and hang it to dry.

      • 2

        Look for black trousers or a skirt. Either should have a semi-loose fit. Tie a couple of scarves or a bandanna around the legs of your pants or the waist of your skirt.

      • 3

        Find a pair of tall black boots. The boots should look worn out and scuffed up if possible.

      • 4

        Layer the outfit with accessories. A striped or solid vest can go over the shirt. Wear a large black belt around your waist. Pull the shirt out above the belt so it looks puffy. Pirates also stole a lot of money and jewels, so no pirate costume is complete without costume jewelry. Look for faux gold medallions, rings or pocket watches in your jewelry box.

      • 5

        Wear an eye patch over one of your eyes. A piece of black fabric secured with elastic can work if you don't have an eye patch. You can glue beads and faux gemstones on it if you like. Many pirates bedazzled their eye patch.

      • 6

        Wear a scarf or bandanna on your head. Loose ends can hang or you can tuck them under if they are short enough.

      • 7

        Find a plastic sword or make one out of cardboard. To make one, just cut the sword and handle in one piece out of cardboard. Paint the handle brown or black and the sword silver or gold.

    How to Make a Sexy Lady Pirate Costume

    How to Make a Sexy Lady Pirate Costume thumbnail
    Make your own sexy lady pirate costume for Halloween.

    Real-life pirates may be scary, but the fictional ones in movies such as "Hook" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" are comical, lovable rogues. With their flamboyant clothes, pirates make a good choice for a fancy-dress outfit. The look is a very versatile one and you can make your costume racier if you want a more grown-up look for an adults' party. A sexy lady pirate costume is fairly easy to make using a few old clothes and some simple materials and sewing skills.

    Things You'll Need

    • Large white shirt
    • 3 feet by 18 inch black fabric
    • Scissors
    Show (8) More

    Instructions

      • 1

        Rummage through your own wardrobe for a large white shirt. If you don't have one, ask a friend or significant other if you can look through their closets. If you can't find or borrow a shirt that will work, look in department stores and secondhand stores. Buy or borrow a pair of knee-high black or brown boots.

      • 2

        Lay the 3-foot by 18-inch black fabric on your work space so the 18-inch edges are on the left and right and the 3-foot edges are the top and bottom. Make a tiny pencil mark on the top edge of fabric 3 inches from the left edge in the top left-hand corner. Make a mark on the left edge of the fabric 6 inches from the top in the same corner. Draw a straight line between the two points. Cut along this line and discard the small triangle. Repeat in the top right-hand corner.

      • 3

        Cut a 1/2-inch hole in the bottom left-hand corner, 1 inch from the bottom edge and 1 inch from the left edge. Cut another 1/2-inch hole 1 inch above the previous one. Repeat until you reach the top of the left edge. Repeat on the right-hand side.

      • 4

        Cut an 8-inch-long horizontal slit that starts 10 inches from the left edge and 2 inches from the top edge. This slit should run parallel to the left edge of the fabric. Repeat on the right side. Your arms will go through these holes when you wear the waistcoat.

      • 5

        Wear the large white shirt and the waistcoat. Thread one of the 5-foot by 1-inch black ribbons through the bottom hole on the left-hand side of the waistcoat, then thread it through the bottom right-hand hole. Pull the ribbon tight, so the waistcoat closes up and you have 2 1/2 feet of ribbon coming through the left hole and 2 1/2 feet through the right. Cross the ribbon that is on the left across to the right and thread through the next hole up. Cross the ribbon that is on the right across to the left and thread through the next hole up. Continue crisscross lacing as you would a pair of shoes until you reach the top of the waistcoat. Pull the ribbon as tight as possible each time. When you reach the top, tie the ribbon in a firm bow. Unbutton the shirt buttons that sit above the waistcoat.

      • 6

        Lay the 4-foot by 16-inch black fabric so the 4-foot edges are the top and bottom. Cut a 1-inch slit in the top left corner of the fabric, 1 inch from the left edge and 1 inch from the top edge. Cut another 1-inch slit 2 inches to the right of the first. Repeat until you reach the right edge.

      • 7

        Sew the 16-inch-long left edge of the 4-foot by 16-inch black fabric to the 16-inch-long right edge using a backstitch. Turn inside out so the rough edge and stitching are on the inside.

      • 8

        Thread the second 5-foot by 1-inch black ribbon through one of the holes, then weave it in and out of the holes until you have taken the ribbon the whole way around. Put the skirt on and pull the ribbon tight and tie it in a bow.

      • 9

        Cut an eye patch out of the 4-inch by 4-inch black fabric. An eye patch is a triangle shape with slightly curved edges. Cut a 1/2-inch hole near the left side and another near the right side. Thread the 2-foot by 1-inch black ribbon through the left hole and fasten it with a knot. Put the patch over one eye and take the ribbon round the back of your head. Pull the other end of the ribbon through the hole on the right side and fasten with a knot. Cut off any extra ribbon.

      • 10

        Wear your fishnet pantyhose and knee-high black or brown boots.

    Tips & Warnings

    • Wear your hair down in a messy, tousled fashion. You could braid small sections of your hair near the front and tie them with colored ribbons.

    • This outfit would fit a size 8-10 female. Vary the size of the black material to make it larger or smaller depending on your own size.

    • Use colored ribbon instead of black for a bolder look.
