The Dread Pirate Roberts

Spanish Edition

The Princess Bride

Last Updated: 08-28-2011

Our cosplay group "...And Sewing Is Half The Battle!" sponsored a big-screen showing of The Princess Bride at the Historic Artcraft Theatre ( We invited all of our cosplay contacts, Facebook fans and the general public to attend Saturday's showing in costume as their own Dread Pirate Roberts franchisee. So, rather than recreate the movie's costume accurately, we had versions ranging from Cammo Pirate Roberts to Femme Pirate Roberts to Dread Pirate Roberts Corporate Management (it's a franchise, after all!) to 1920s Dread Gangster Roberts (complete with spats and tommy-gun).

My version was pretty close to Westley's film costume, with the addition of a Spain-inspired fringed sash. I was the "Dread Pirate Roberts Spanish Edition -- Because No One Expects The Spanish Edition!"

(...and yeah, Princess Bride by way of Monty Python. You can totally call me a nerd now.)

The costume itself was made in one night out of two yards of black crepe and a scrap of crepe-back satin. Shirt, mask and sash were constructed for this event; pants, boots and sword were already in my closet. (But I'll probably get some more mileage out of the ensemble in the future by adding a hat and cape and calling myself Zorro.) ;-)
