Damn, I wanna have a costume for the premiere of this so bad! Luckily for me (sorta) one of my fave singers is doing a female pirate theme, so I might try my hand at that before attempting anything from the movie itself @_@

And grabby hands for that chair of epic awesomeness XD

zomg It has a name now!! lol I seriously hope they don't ruin the trilogy with this one- are Keira and Orlando Bloom still out on this one??

I'm cautiously optimistic with my expectations of the movie. I think # 3 came dangerously close to dragging out the whole thing too much, buuuuut, I'm still stoked to see it. I will probably have a good time, and, dammit, I'm dressing up in Something ridiculous like I did for all the others!

Though, I think I might do something more generic 18thc than a costume from the movie. It'll still be sweet.

This will be the first Pirates movie that is based on (or at least borrowing heavily from) an existing novel -- On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers. It's a fantastic book, one of my all time top five novels, so when I heard Disney was adapting it for Pirates 4 I was really excited. Definitely read it before the movie if you get a chance!

Ooooh, neat! Too bad my "books to read NOW" list is constantly growing and never shrinking.

I'm already brainstorming 18thc clothing--excited to finally have a use for the 18thc corset I made like...a year ago.

Keira is in Germany filming "A Dangerous Method" with Viggo Mortensen. She will not be in this film...
much as I love Jack (second only to Sam of my fave Johnny characters) I'm not looking forward to this installment for some reason. I'm still hoping to make my Jack costume. (Power Rangers atm is my priority :crylaugh:)

Oh, Jack Sparrow is going to grace whatever theater I'm nearest for the opening.

This is certain.

I think taking the Turners out of the story is a good move. It just fits the story. Their story is up, it's time to focus on Jack a bit more. The only thing that scares me on this is the fact that Gore Verbinski jumped ship. However, I do trust Johnny Depp. If he's still with the project, you know it can't suck all that bad. If he thought it would be bad, he probably wouldn't touch it.

I, too, trust Johnny as well as Geoffrey Rush. I <3 those two immensely.

As for Kiera and Orlando, they both said they're not coming back becuase their characters' story is already done, was finished in At World's End. Honestly, I'm not too broken up about it (they started to annoy me).

Purified- Haha, "jumped ship" hahahahahaha. ^_~

I do understand the reason for taking them out, I just hope this film is just as good as the others without them. And true, they were rather irritating.

Just a heads up since filing started a couple weeks ago they've just released the first pics from the sets. Nothing exciting right now from what I saw; just Johnny walking around a beach with the crew scattered around. Hopefully we'll start seeing some of the good stuff soon -crosses fingers for an epic mermaid design-

Personally, I've got my fingers crossed for an epic costume design for Blackbeard's daughter. Being that Penny Rose is back onboard, I have a feeling we won't be disappointed. :)

You two just made me smile. ^.^

You're welcome; it's what I live for :D

I watched Curse of the Black pearl today. : ) I think I may watch the second one here in a bit and do some more knitting. (DX I'm soo ready to be done with these Hogwarts scarves! I'm ready to do something else!)

lol Mr. Bobinsky is blackbeard.

Cuz I'm a blonde........yeah yeah yeah!

So a preliminary wig study of the recently released images of CJS on the beach.

We know there is blonde dreads and from what I can see their appears to be two long dreads that are about "to the stomach" length on JDs right side, one or two on the left side that are also "to the stomach" length, and a short chubby one at the left temple area. It is difficult to see what is adorned on each dread as far as wraps or charms/coins. Also with each image the colors vary from blonde to dark but that is the image quality.

The ponytail appears slightly longer and hangs about mid back now however I could be wrong about that fact.

There is one image in which it appears that Jack now has two long dreads that hang down the back as well but it is difficult to see if they are the actual blonde dreads

And finally it appears that one dread on JDs left side has a much larger length of dread wrap on it.

It is difficult to tell but it appears the overall number of dreads from AWE wig to OST wig has been reduced. It is just one big black blob but you don't see dread ends on his shoulders and chest areas.

I can't wait for some nice HI-RES studio photos to be release so we can get some details on this new hairstyle. I definitely will be heading in the direction of an entirely new wig soon!!! I finished one blonde dread but didn't realize that I only had one package of blonde Kanekalon hair. Bandana is done!!!!!:wink:

Small picture. It doesn't look like JD but who knows. A wee bit small.

Two long blonde dreads on either side. It appears that one or two of them have some sort of wraps on them.

"To the stomach" length dreads. Also the one dread that has the tan colored elaborate wrap almost the entire length of the dread.


Two long dreads on the back.

Short chubby dread.

Pics have been released of Penelope Cruz's character. I think she looks kinda nifty.

oooo! likes

Meh. I think I might be the only one so far who doesn't like Cruz's costume. It looks too much to me like she stepped off the front of a Simplicity (http://www.simplicity.com/p-2627-costumes.aspx) pattern (http://www.simplicity.com/p-3035-womens-womens-petite-costumes.aspx) envelope (http://www.simplicity.com/p-1970-costumes.aspx). The materials look expensive, but the overall look is cheap and kind of half-assed. And that makes me sad, because I love Penny Rose. :/

OMG Wow, it kinda does. I love her work too!! And that costume isn't anything spectacular, like her other pieces. I just wish they got more of a, um, "better" actress to be Angelica. : / Sorry, but she's just so....overrated. They should have a gotten a bit of a lesser-known actress. Maybe my mind will be changed when I actually see the movie.

I knew I'd be glad I joined this site!

I've been getting more and more hyped with each new set shot, I saw the "teaser" at San Diego Comic-Con in 3D and loved it. I'll be going as Jack to the midnight screening without a doubt and I am going to try and talk my friend into possibly being my Barbossa.

I'm a huge Pirates fan and I've loved every aspect of the films (the cast, screenwriting, directing, etc.) I was heavily associated with Jack throughout highschool and I have cosplay very well near completed but I'm working on finding the best wig and method for getting the eye makeup done.

I feel the same way.

Blackbeard (Ian McShane) has been sighted on set.

So, The bottom line is, In order to have an accurate OST Jack Sparrow. I need to carve an X into my cheek and a symbol into my chest. Most excellent.

If anyone's looking for more resources for the OST movie (now that it has been released), the rpf has a thread dedicated to it :

Now, back to scouring the internet for Angelica's paisley vest material! ><
