Eeek Jack is awsome XDD Bwaha, I saw pirates of the caribbian last night, it was so awsome. Me and my friend dressed up as pirates for it. (*loves Johnny depp so much*, hes so sexy as a pirate >:3)

I'm not going to dragon con, but the resteraunts sound really cool. I think its a great idea.

I'd love to make Barbossa's hat .... Sounds like it would be fun. I've always been in to pirate stuff, which is why I love One Piece.
Ebay is selling some of the props, oh the patterns you can make off those images. ^_^

Barbossa's hat reminded me of a gardner hat hehe ! my dad loved the hat as well ! u can easy make a regular pirate hat w. his hat as well by just folding teh ends up and eather buttining it up or sewing it.
lol oo must see props!

I was actually thinking about cosplaying a sezzay female pirate for Halloween. Score, now I have an excuse to make a corset. I just hope I don't fall off a cliff trying to breathe in it. *lol*

I want to say they are a faded navy/black. I dont know exactly how you could go about getting them to look old and faded but yah, I think that's what they look like.

Yay! I wasn't the only one who dressed up for the movie. My friend and I did, although it wasn't really authentic cosplaying. They were fairly generic costumes. But here's mine.

Hehe, I went to the movies the other night and these pirate cosplayers were in line. :D Obviosly we all know what they went to see. Then afterwards, some jumped inside the bus that was in front of the theater (in the pouring rain) and screamed "We claim this bus in the name of blah blah blah" followed by more screaming from their fellow pirates outside. It was amusing, don't you just hate it when these type of things hapen and you never seem to have a camera handy??

Oh my goodness! What I would have given to see that! *lol* Sadly, there were no cosplayers at either showing of the movie when I went. Hmmm, maybe I should go see it again and dress up. XD

Well, this was a movie theater in the middle of nowhere in a small section of civilization & college campus in Indiana, so I wouldn't expect anything in town here. ^^

Yeah, my love of pirates and such has always been there. I rp/rp'd a few pirates and tend to collect silly pirate stuff and wheeee! The movie was all...well, totally made me want to cosplay Jack Sparrow...like a total nerd. O,o; I downloaded a bunch of sea shanties and friggan Irish drinking songs like What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor and the like and keep listening to them. There's one song I want to do a skit with ...but pirate skits at an anime convention? Or even a sci-fi one? Is that right? ahhh so obsessed...

And for the obsessed like me, there is this crazy fun massive online rpg thing called Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates. Just check out the site. It's wicked cute. I go by the name of Ysabel.. :D

08-12-2003, 05:05 PM
..ack yur image didnt work Taru-chan. maybe the site is haven image problems.

OOOOOOOOOOOO Nirv yur ppl were a pirate? thats so coolness! i dono about my family line like that well to know if mine were or not. i doubt it though haha !

08-12-2003, 06:46 PM
My family tree involves around blood and guts. Knights, Pirates, WW1 Commando's, WW2 Hero's etc.

Skullez
08-12-2003, 07:02 PM
one that i only konwof on my side was in ww2. most my family are imigrants =e.e= ! and cant speak english to well...so its ahrd to get noraml talk about them. but thats for the ones i visit on ocassions.
..but anyhoo ! thats cool how you know so much of yur family line !!

I know American teens usually find history boring. But most English teens take interest in it, especially when it can shape the future ;)

Skullez
08-12-2003, 09:02 PM
heh you asume to much. personaly i love history. just b/c i dotn know much of my family past all to well dont mean im not dead into it =P.
right now im taken goverment and world hostory. goverment is a different story cuz im not a democrat or a republican. im a independent.
but yea most teachers in us schools dont teach most teens here the intresting stuff.
so i just go look for myself.

Nirv
08-12-2003, 09:53 PM
I agree with your last point. I had to revise the Russian Revolution, which was well boring. Battle of Hastings and WW2 Africa Campaign was the shit.

Muaha...I did a quasi-pirate wench at a renn faire this year, though I just grabbed a random bandanna and ended up looking more like a gangsta-wench.

I'd like to do a Mary Read costume someday, but there are about...what...three reference pictures existing of her?

I haven't seen Pirates of the carabbean yet, I'm planning on going today if everything goes as planned.
I've alwasy like pirates and pirate related stuff (lol, my sis and i are redecorating out bathroom w/ a pirate theme even).
I'm thinking I'm gonna do a random pirate girl for halloween this year.

Coolz, I havent even had the chance to start yet. We plan on making it a rule that you are required to wear a pirate hat (that we will hang outside of the door) if you go in there....don't know how well thats gonna fly but we'll see, heh.

On a side note...

Anybody know of any historically accurate (or semi accurate) female pirate patterns? I'll i ever see in the pattern books are those dresses that are cut in zig zags at the bottom w/ a sash around the waist or something (you know, those cheesy generic pirates). I want it to be accurate (i'll probably modify it anyways so I can wear it to the clubs but I want it to be based off what it would really look like). I want to start soon so I can have it done for halloween.

WEell I have Illistrations of Anne Bonny and Mery Read. There from a pirate book i have, but im sure its the best help that u can get for a acurate pirate lass costume. most pirate women dressed as a man cux in the pirate creed if a women was caught posing as a pirate it was death.

the image is in my gallery if u are intrested in the maken costumes part.

Jun_Kazama
08-21-2003, 12:42 PM
Ah..okies...Maybe I can modify it to be like a more girly type outfit then...I actually wanted a dress or skirt so I'll see what I can come up with...
Or also I saw some patterns for a gypsy type costume at the fabric store so maybe i can use that for part of it..Granted it wont be accurate but I like the way it looks aslo. This costume is gonna be for going out clubbing in and stuff so I want to look cool too ^_^

I'm sure I'll think of something^_^" I'm planning on going to the library and doing some research on it,

For my chick pirate costume Im using Simplicity pattern # 8851. It has patterns for a lil corset vest type thing, skirt, and poofy shirt. Check it out, it might be able help yah.

I have some pictures of our PotC cosplay. One thing I found interesting is if you don't have hair like Will Turner (which I don't), getting a 3/4 wig is amazing.

Hair extensions are wonderful when being pirates.

I also looked on ebay when they were selling the original costumes. One of the comiedic (in my eyes) detail on Jack and Will's pants is the removeable flap, I guess for easy bathroom access >.>; But its a hoot to add to pants anyway lol.
