Kids Pirate Halloween Costume Ideas
Arrrgh! Is your kid a pirate? Is he on a quest to find his sunken chest? Pirate costumes can be a fun way to celebrate Halloween, and it doesn't even have to be expensive. Here are some ideas on how to put together your own creative kid's pirate Halloween costume:
Clothes / Headgear
The first thing you're going to need is some tattered clothes that can fit a small frame. Keep an eye out especially for the stereotypical red-and-white striped long-sleeved shirts that pirates always seem to wear. You can either dig through piles of clothes at the thrift store, or you can buy a pre-made pirate costume, but there is something to be said about making it yourself, since it would be unique.
You can get a three-cornered pirate hat, but a red bandanna would get your point across, too. Try to get something with a skull and crossbones on it. You might also want to get an eye patch to complete the look.
Pirates have to look pretty, too! In this case, though, you'll mostly want to go for some fake stubble. Sparsely rub some brown or black makeup on your kid's chin until it looks like a 5 (or 10) o'clock shadow.
Depending on how you feel about introducing your kid to fake weapons, a 15th century-style revolver or a saber can be a great accessory for a kid's pirate costume. Just make sure that they're clearly plastic, of course. You don't want to scare the neighbors!
