Pirate costumes make for fantastic Halloween fancy dress. Ever since Johnny Depp pulled on the Jack Sparrow outfit back in 2003 for the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie a huge following was born into the swashbuckler genre. With a massive variety of pirate costumes available in the shops you should be able to find something to fit your taste. Be it a short, bright pink frock that demonstrates your femininity or a long, spooky buccaneer fancy dress kit there are pirate costumes for everyone.
The original Jack Sparrow costume has been very popular with guys for years now and with the continued release of further movies in the Disney franchise this shows no sign of going away any time soon.
As Halloween fancy dress pirate costumes are a great choice as they can be worn as the old traditional dress or altered to create a completely unique outfit. Taking influence from the POTC films you could turn a standard costume into an undead variation by tearing the material a little and adding some extra detailing. Splattering fake blood over the dress, adding a plastic sword and a pirate hat will certainly enhance the look and styling of the outfit.
