There’s nothing quite like donning a pirate costume for a fancy dress party, cosplay event, or Halloween tricks and treats, and selecting the right pirate costume accessories helps you stand out from other partygoers. Whether you’re looking to be an old sea dog for the day or a sizzling wench for the night, choose the right accessories to make your costume the contest winner.The Basics
There’s a lot to consider when putting together pirate costumes. Hats, striped trousers, vests, and billowing shirts are necessary. Put together the swashbuckling outfits piece by piece or get complete outfits to make dressing easier. Jack Sparrow and Blackbeard outfits give you and your friends everything you need to look like your favourite pirate heroes; all you need to do is bring the pieces of eight.Accessories
Pirate costumes are perhaps one of the most widely recognisable Halloween costumes, so whether you create your own outfit or select a full costume, you want to accessorise and make it uniquely you. An aged-effect sword adds a fun element, while golden hoop earrings and a leather eye patch help you get into character before the party. Foam swords even allow you to participate in mock battles, without losing an eye.Other Pirate Looks
If you aren’t going out for the night, but instead staying in watching a pirate film, consider slipping into a pirate fleece onesie. Polar fleece has longer fibres for a fluffy feel, but flannel fleece onesies still provide the same snuggly warmth. Alternatively, there are even inflatable costumes bound to add humour to any occasion.For the Whole Family
There is more to choose from than men's pirate costumes. Let the whole the brood join in with a family of pirates and get costumes for the women and kids, too. For very young children, tabards make a great choice because they slip over the clothing your children are wearing.
