My name is Captain Bonny. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny

This is Captain Rackham. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_Jack

We met on the high seas and after many fights decided that we worked well together. Captain Rackham proposed a merger of our forces, but me being a solo kind of gal it took a little convincing!

I began to realize the error of my ways ....

....and agreed to our merger.

Captain Rackham then revealed that he was also interested in a different sort of merger.

I took a page from ChainCrafts http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=390581.0 for the action shots and narrative. Thanks for the inspiration!

I made both captains' costumes from Simplicity patterns and found items. All of the jewelry you see was crafted by me except for the earrings and my coin belt. Captain Rackham's bandanna I embellished with bead strands. I am especially proud of his eyepatch which I made to look as though it were permanently attached to his eye socket. I added thumb tacks (no I didn't actually use them to attach it!) for decor and used garmet tape to adhere it.

My dress was made from some super awesome VINTAGE 70's knit fabric I found at a yardsale that begged to be used for something totally cool. Though the sewing wasn't that intense it took several weeks to put it all together. I hope you like it!

Please be kind, I'm a Craftster Challenge virgin. Wink

Very nice. This is what I look at for inspiration as I want to do this for my husband and I next year.

Dream Big! My dream is to one day own a Bernina sewing machine. Smiley
