Pirate costumes are
a great way to celebrate Halloween, Christmas, Chanukah or Talk
Like A Pirate Day. In fact, pirate costumes are a great way to celebrate
birthdays, Cinco de Mayo or even Secretary's Day. In fact, pirate
costumes should become a standard part of your Casual Friday wardrobe.
Heck with that, pirate
costumes should become part of your everyday wardrobe, my matey.
Pirate costumes have been around as long as pirates themselves.
In those days, they did not call them costumes, however, they called
Now, back in the day, those swashbucklers would, yes, wear buckles
to hold their pants up, but they also wore fancy pirate hats as
well. Today's costumes are not the same without a fancy hat. Yes,
you may opt for a fancy dancy bandana, but nothing says full blown
pirate costume like a big old captain's hat.
Besides a hat, no pirate costume is complete without puffy shoulders,
big black boots, an eye patch and a sword. Throw in the parrot and
your pirate costume will sing like a little schoolgirl at recess.
Okay, so that's a squeal.
The point is, why go half the way when it comes to pirate costumes
when you can purchase the whole smorgasbord of options to go with
it? That said, your whole family should be endowed with pirate
costumes so everyone can celebrate like scoundrels together.

Why, pray tell stop at pirate costumes and why not construct an
entire pirate motif inside your home or apartment. This way your
costumes will not be out of place one iota. Do you think Jack Sparrow,
Davy Jones or Captain Hook had art deco furniture in their dwellings
as they lounged around in their pirate costumes? No, I say, No!
You can also bet your bottom dollar (or doubloon) that Robert Louis
Stevenson wore several pirate costumes as he was penning Treasure
Island. In fact, my Long John Silver seafood loving friend,
it wouldn't hurt you to take your whole family, wearing costumes
out for fish and chips every once in a while, now would it?
Nay, I say, Nay! And, the next time you're at the old folks home
doing a little community service for that DUI you picked up after
hitting the bars one night, why not dress all those old scallywags
up in pirate costumes? They'll love it. Of course, don't make like
a real pirate and steal from them or that would be just plain tacky.
