Who was it that was going to do the coat for you?
Im planning on getting mine from Scott at Yordreem

Thank you! I still have to do a makeup test, so once I have the wig and mustache and goatee, it will look better.

Just thought I'd update. This is what my cosplay will look like for Otakon
This is as complete as it will be for a while, as I have basically no money now lol

That's fantastic, mate! Frankly, it looks better than mine.

Thank you very much!

You should be a pro Jack Sparrow impersonator, you have the proper look for him

I appreciate that. I'd like to, but I unfortuitously have not the resources to make my costume more up to pro standards, such as your own.

I think your costume looks great! If you have the act down, you can definitely be a pro impersonator
I don't look anything like him and I'm trying to do pro impersonating now

So I went to Anime Midwest this past weekend and I got some really nice photos taken of me
I thought I'd share them here. Not much has changed on the costume besides the fact that I bought a new baldric (ACME Brand) and finally have an accurate DMC/AWE Anna Maria belt (got that from a trade).

Looks great. I'm really wanting to revamp everything about my Captain Jack.

I need a decent vest like crazy, cause all the ones I've ever used are gone. Don't know how, but they are. The more I see others' boots, the more I hate mine. XD
I need an actual shuge sleeved shirt, and my belts are still cheap pleather. Also, a pair of actual drop front breeches would be fantastic, but the faded khakis are just gonna have to work for awhile...

UGH. Need money. Or donations. Maybe a sign: "Will dance and make funny faces for better costume."

Thanks!

You can get a pretty good vest here and then heavily modify it (re dye the front, replace the fabric on the back, and replace the buttons). That's the vest I am using in the photos above. Or you could just go for it and buy a Yordreem vest, his vests are considered among the best.
As for boots, I bought boots and just added the cuffs to them. I think I completed these boots for $60 which is pretty cheap. I do hope to upgrade to CAboots though. I don't have proper drop front breeches but with the sash and belts no one really notices that they aren't drop front. That's just one of those unseen details that I will eventually sort out but it isn't urgent now.

Anyways below are pictures of my recent On Stranger Tides updates.

I have the wrong Piece of Eight and my wig isn't 100% completed yet (yea I ran around for one weekend with an incomplete wig lololololol), but it will be complete by Otakon so I'll probably post more pics up from that.

Also side note about the professional thing... you could totally take events with the costume you have now. If you have the act down and you already have the look and the costume, people will definitely hire you. You can make upgrades to your costume as you take on more gigs, so basically let the gigs you get serve as a way for you to pay for your costume.
If you want more information on how to start as an impersonator feel free to PM me.

Hi Sweeney! I'd be happy to answer any questions about being Jack for hire as well! More jacks for more questions!

The three of us should get together and just run around like chickens. It would be glorious.

One Jack Sparrow a while back suggested that for a convention we should all do different versions of Jack from The Locker scene. It would be cool to recreate that scene with a bunch of Sparrow impersonators xD

Just thought I'd quickly post a couple of the most recent pics I got from NY Comic Con this year. And this time I actually have the correct PO8 for my bandana! lol.
I am missing the chicken foot though, but yea I guess I just can't ever have all of his accessories in my photos can I? I am also missing the Dragon ring so I am wearing the Stolen ring on my thumb to keep balance, but no one seems to notice really so I guess that's okay.




These photos are by Edbophotography on Facebook
