Cheap and Easy Pirate Costume Tricks

Want to get into the spirit of "Talk Like A Pirate Day?" Join us this Saturday (Sept 19) for a Pirate Party on International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

An easy and inexpensive pirate costume:

1. Find a pair of old black pants and fringe the edges with scissors.

2. Tuck in a big gold or white blouse. Tie a red scarf around the pirate's waist and a bandanna around his/her head head.

3. Clip on some gold costume jewelry, then add an eye patch and a pirate's hook (all inexpensive party store finds).

4. Dab on black face paint for a beard and missing-tooth makeup.

5. If you've got a stuffed bird in your toy box, use craft wire to attach it to your pirate's shirtsleeve.
