So my daughter (12yo) has an abiding crush on Captain Jack Sparrow of Pirates of the Carribbean fame. Not Johnny Depp, mind you, Jack - the drunk pirate. Not so sure of her taste in men here! But, I tell myself that it is a phase and she will eventually pick some reasonable real, non-drunk individual to be her life mate. (Right? Please humor me and tell me I'm right! Embarrassed Undecided)

ANYway . . . She wants to be JS for Halloween this year, and so the crafting begins!

My father, who is very crafty in his own right, made her an awesome leather tricorn hat for her birthday in August, and my mom sewed up a nice rust-colored bandanna.

I made her the vest, the pleather belts, and took a used tea-towel (for those authentic stains!) and took a red sharpie to it to give it the red strips JS has on his sash. The shirt was purchased and dyed with tea, and I didn't get around to making her pants - she just wore black leggings, which looked great!

She did not wind up wearing the bandana - too much stuff in her hair! Here she is in all her glory:


And another pic of her at a neighborhood event with my hubby in his (slightly rearranged) potato head costume:

Today I made these hair accoutrements:


I made the large bone out of Sculpey (it's a bit bendy, but I think it will work). I took a bone from a plastic skeleton to use for one of the beaded strands - it's wrapped with different kinds of chains and has some beads on it and then below it. I then just used a bunch of beads I had on a leather cord for the other strand, and used various odds and ends (and some sculpey beads I'd made a while back).

Picture of JS to see where these things came from:


I am in the process of making his two wide leather (made of fabric that looks like leather) belts, and then have to make the vest and pants. Bought a pirate shirt and dyed it in tea this afternoon. Will eventually post pics of the whole thing, but here's the starter!

As always, thanks for looking! Grin

Thanks! My parents belong to a living history organization called The Brigade of the American Revolution (BAR), and my dad has made his own wool tricorn hats for years (along with his uniform, canteens, musketballs, etc)! We were just lucky he had some leather that was about the right color to use for this hat!

I think girls of all ages like Capitan Jack Sparrow Smiley  Bad guys are attractive for women Wink
I really like Johnny Depp as an actor though, trying to follow his life and career. Read that he owns this villa in France https://tranio.com/france/adt/1635106/,12 bedrooms and a guest house  Shocked

Ha! Yes - I understand the attraction of JS, but personally prefer Johnny Depp on the whole! I'd love to visit him in France!

Hahaha... She'll get over JS. I had a crush on Knightley when I was around her age. And the costume, it looks pretty legit. can you put on that facial hair and that mascara?
