here is the costume I've been working on all month in preparation for Halloween! I'm super happy with how it came out, and I hope you guys like it too.  Everything is handmade except the shoes, hat, and jewelry unless otherwise noted.  I only just found this forum, so hello.  On to the pictures!

The Hat

I hand sewed on the embellishments on the band.

I made this necklace out of buttons, two earrings, and a piece of leftover chain. 

The ascot, made of leftover lining fabric, and leftover trim from the hat, and a piece of ribbon.

Pouch made of faux leather scraps filled with plastic coins, embellished with an old earing.

Which was hung on a belt made of two children's belts hooked together, and a close up of the fring and trim on the waist of the skirt

Which hung next to the cool toy gun!!

This is the eye patch, I put the wierd looking button I found on it to make it more pirate!

The coat and jewelry etc.

Close up of the cuffs

Closeup of coat buttons

All trim on the coat and bottom of skirt is hand sewn.

Closeup of the back of the coat detail

Back of the coat

Whole view of the costume on the dress form

And finally,


I had a terrific time.  I wish Halloween lasted longer than a day!!!

Please comment Cheesy Thanks for looking!

Ok, I fixed all the images! yay!

I'm pretty impressed.  The hat is awesome! Did you make it from scratch?  If so how?  If not, where did you get the base?

I've seen a lot of pirate costumes this Halloween, but yours is very original! I LOVE the green... and all the little details! You should be very proud. Smiley

Wow sweet costume, I love how many embellishments you put on it, it looks great, the greens are awesome. You remind me of Alyson Hannigan, hehe.

The detail you put into it is fantastic - the trim & buttons alone! Sheesh!  Looked great...

Thank you so much for your wonderfull words.  It's always really flattering to hear that your work looks professional!  I did get a couple of people who asked me where I bought it Cheesy  I got my boots from Hot Topic at a half price shoe sale a while ago.  I was in looove with them. Cheesy

I'm really glad you like it.  I wanted to be a different very rich pirate captain! Thanks again!
