Calling all ye scurvy lasses and marauders of the high seas! This year be the best year ever to be a female scallywag. There be many a fine house full of land lubbers just awaitin’ ta hand over the chocolate coins and lollipop gems! No matter what yer age Spirit has a pirate costume just for you. Check out adult outfits, girl teen ensembles, and even infant girls. Pirating isn’t just for boys anymore!
You’ve got to dress like a swashbuckler if you want anyone to take you seriously! The girl shipmate can expect a variety of adorable ensembles; everything from colonial style ruffians, too cute toddler girls like Pinky. Classic scallywag ensembles are swiftly giving way to the hip new punk look. Corsets get replaced by tough looking studded belts. Unwieldy captains’ hats are being replaced by skull printed bandanas. Even the sweetest toddler outfit includes a pink skull and cross bones on Halloween! Still not piratey enough for you? We have tons of pirate accessories to help you out. Eye patches, hats, even gold coins and parrots! And the arsenal is fairly impressive too; swords, daggers, pistols and hooks abound. It can be so hard to choose…
Now that you have your costume, little girl or not, ye’ll be needing ta learn to talk like a pirate! Proper freebooter vocabulary is a must and will lend authenticity to your child pirate outfit. Try to sprinkle every conversation with threats to “keel haul”, “lower the boom”, “flog” and of course, forced “walking the plank”. If threats are not appropriate, go for friendly insults. Old favorites include references to dubious parentage and various common sailors’ diseases. For example, a pleasant greeting: “Happy Halloween, you louse bitten son of a lonely goldfish! Hand over the chocolate or I’ll be forced ta lower the boom on ye.”
Fans of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” will certainly want to be in full costume to celebrate Halloween. For the Caribbean rover girl, you can choose to be one of Captain Jack’s crew in kid marauder garb, or a damsel in distress. The big difference? Petticoats. Raiders have a hard time getting away with wearing large petticoats while climbing the ropes and battening down the hatches before a big storm at sea. If you were to attempt such an unenviable task, voila, you’d be an instant damsel in distress.
