Halloween Costumes – Pirate

So much hairspray, you would never know.

Arrrggh-n’t you ready for Halloween? Ok, cheesy part over. I couldn’t help myself. As I’ve said before, I have three Halloween costumes. Pulled this one out for the first party. It was a hit and didn’t cost me a dime. I have to say though, I don’t know too many people that have a closet that runs the gambit from hippie to old lady to Victorian-era. Mine does.

I gathered the following (plus another maroon scarf and every piece of gold jewelry I owned):

Corset, fluffy white top, scarves, pirate boots

I happen to have a fluffy white hippie top and went perfectly under my corset. The corset, I wore backwards so the ties were in the front, to get that pirate waistband look. I tied the maroon floral scarf around my waist to layer my look. Topped the look with the pirate boots which have been sitting in my closet forever, but were perfect for this.

For my hair, I had my friend curl the heck out of my super fine, super straight hair. Curled and added half a can of hairspray to my do, then pinned a maroon silk scarf in as a headband.

Don’t forget a pair of black or black patterned shorts. (I went with my Gap pair I got this summer. Cotton, flow-y and had a gray pattern on it.)

Top it with every gold necklace I own, and POOF! You’ve got yourself a pirate. See, so easy.

Now, only two more costumes to go. I can’t wait!
