The days of the pirates may be over but the charm associated with them is still alive. The fact people still flock to see movies about these daredevils proves that they are very much alive in the imaginations of both children and adults. It does not matter if you do not get to sore the high seas and drink kegs of rum everyday, but you can be anybody you wish to be on Halloween night.
It is on such a night, when the bonfires are lit, that you may catch the eye of some wench or mate with an adult pirate costume. When you dressed as a plunderer of the high seas, you never know how many hearts you will steal!
If you are a man, then you may choose to be a cutthroat captain or a rustic who is ready to use his rusty musket more often than required.
If you are a woman, you may be a naughty wench or an elegant lady with an aristocratic accent.
It is very difficult to get the right look if you try to make adult pirate costumes at home. While pirates did wear worn-out clothes, the real charm of their clothes lies in the fact that they were made specifically for traveling on the sea. Such fabrics are difficult to obtain and the easiest way to get the right look is to go for the stuff that is available with the online suppliers who deal in adult pirate costumes.
