I've looked across the forums and haven't found a thread *qyuite* like this.

It's National Youth Week in Aus and my town/ community are putting on an event called Carnivala, which is basically going to be like a Jesters Court, with bands, a Bocce tournament, bearded ladies, firebreathers etc. Which is where I come in.

My friend is basically a pirate. Hehe. (he looks like a pirate, especially when he dresses up) So he's going to be the star of the 'Fight The Pirate' Stand, and I'm his backing Wenchie Cheesy.

So. I'm pretty much reconstructing things I have into a wenchy outfit - A big white tee-shirt is turning into an off the shoulder ruffled peasant top, a black skirt is getting cut piratey, and the bottom of the teeshirt is going to get striped red and be all pretty with trim etc on the skity.

I'm also wearing white tights and my knee high chunky CFM boots.

So I think I havea  wenchy thing happening, but I'm not sure about accesories or mamkeup or anything like that -

I'm thinking a red headband/ bandanna thing, an eyepatch, I have an old antiquey pirate looking brooch to put on my skirt. I'm thinking maybe a denim patch of a skull and crossbones.

And as for makeup - any ideas? I was thinking red lipstick, and smudgy blue eys with lots of eyeliner. Messy chunky hair.

Overall, I'm thinking something similar to this, but without the bustier/ corset and a little less 'sexy'

I <3 pirates.
Definitely lots of smudgy dark eye makeup.  I would buy white lace and sew it onto the peasant top.  If you don't mind destroying your tights, then cut some holes in them and make some ladders (runs).  You could pin a feather or two onto your headband/bandanna, and do some of those beads-in-the-hair that looked so hot on Jack Sparrow.  (Actually, he's also a great example of pirate eye makeup.  Cheesy)
