Captain Jack Sparrow Costume
Ever since Captain Jack Sparrow stumbled off his sinking ship in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, he stole our hearts and imagination. His permanently stewed persona is a strange brew with seemingly spur-of-the-moment decision-making skills and a moral code that's twisted like a sailor's knot mixed in. That salty brew is a legendary flavor that the Pirates of the Caribbean audience developed a taste for, which is why Captain Sparrow is still legendary to this day!
We don't know why it seems to be impossible to keep Jack Sparrow down. We've seen 'em try swords, hanging, and marooning, but the most painful attack always seems to be getting slapped by former love interests or blows to the Captain's ego. Are you ready to take on this legendary character? Return to the magic of the Caribbean with a Captain Jack Sparrow costume that'll have you longing for far horizons and full sails!
Adult Jack Sparrow Costumes
If you're looking to end every refreshment with an exasperated "why is the rum always gone?", you'll find the perfect costume on this page. Great for slapstick hijinks and staggering around the beach in a haze, there are plenty of ridiculous ways to parlay once you're dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow!
Men's Jack Sparrow Costume
Jack Sparrow's style is instantly recognizable. His time is typically split between the sea and a jail cell with little vacations in portside pubs, eyeliner deep in rum. We can't imagine that he has much time to change up his wardrobe! A good thing, too, because we love his eclectic look, and we imagine it serves him well in his travels. His captain's jacket protects him from squalls as well as weapons in hand-to-hand combat. His belt is always full of useful trinkets he's picked up along his travels. Whatever costume you choose, make sure you're carrying his compass so that you can be sure to follow your truest desires, all through the night!
Women's Jack Sparrow Costume
The role of Captain Jack Sparrow isn't just for men, savvy? Not only can a woman rock the traditional coat and breeches that is the Captain's uniform, but Jack's eclectic style easily lends itself to more feminine takes. The Ladies Jack Sparrow costume featured here makes the most of Jack's layered look. With multiple Santa Maria belts winding around the waist that cinch important accessories in place, you might even be more ready to sail the seas than in the original costume!
Other Pirates of the Caribbean Outfits
While Captain Jack Sparrow may have stolen the show as soon as he stepped off that sinking ship, let's not forget the other characters that had us hooked. Characters like Elizabeth Swan, the young William Turner, Hector Barbossa, and even the uptight British Officer James Norrington can let you transform your lone Jack Sparrow outfit into a group ordeal! It's time the group got back together anyway. And we bet you can find an epic reason to get them all out there on the wild seas!
Choose a women's pirate dress that helps you take on the role of the rough yet elegant Elizabeth Swan. Any roguish pirate costume with a scarf holding back brown locks will let you dress as William Turner, while an official army uniform is important if you want to join the anti-pirate league.
Jack Sparrow Costumes for Kids
If all your kid wants to do is swing from the mizzen-mast, and chandeliers, and drapery…basically, if your kids dreams of causing havoc where ever they go, then dressing up as Captain Jack Sparrow is a great way to vent that energy. Once they've got their Captain's hat, the adventure is on. Just be sure and remind them that all their rope swinging and balancing acts should be in designated playing areas, or you may be saying goodbye to a few light fixtures and window treatments, savvy?
Pirate Jack Sparrow
Becoming a pirate is always an adventure. Becoming the pirate Jack Sparrow, well, that's another level of adventure. Sure, some may call Jack the worst pirate that they've ever seen, but he's much craftier than any man in uniform will assume at first sight. Sometimes he's a Captain when in possession of the Black Pearl, but even when he's not, he's always thinking on his feet. He can escape a marooning by strapping together a couple of turtles, so they say! What better way to teach a tenacious nature than having your kiddo follow in the steps of the pirate Jack Sparrow, captain status or not!
Toddler Jack Sparrow Halloween Costume
Is there anything cuter than a tough toddler? We don't think so! If you're thinking of making your chubby little angel into one of the greasiest, hard-tack chomping, deal-breaking, rum-swilling pirates out there, we can't wait to see the results! Just trade the rum for a bottle of apple juice and add a little captain's hat and your kid will be ready. All that stumbling and word slurring comes naturally to those little ones! Teach them a few key phrases like "savvy?" and "drink up me hearties, yo ho!" and the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie may have to feature a junior version of everyone's favorite pirate captain!
Jack Sparrow Cosplay
Captain Jack Sparrow will always be a fun choice for cosplay events. His persona has expanded beyond Disney pirate fandom, and now people in Jack Sparrow cosplay can be seen bumbling through Renaissance Fairs, Steampunk events, and even city streets. If you want a real part of the action, you'll find what you need here, plus a few tips on how to customize your ensemble to your tastes.
Jack Sparrow Outfit
They say that when Johnny Depp began playing the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, he channeled a little bit of Pepe Le Pew and a lot of Keith Richards. The drunken charm of the two characters worked and took the world by storm. No matter the reason you're dressing up, you can channel that energy as well with a high-quality Jack Sparrow costume. Make sure you're paying attention to the little details like Jack's smokey eyes and the various resources he has dreaded into his hair and tucked into his belts. We'll go into more detail on what you can add to flush out more character in the coming cosplay accessories section, so, avast ye maties!
Authentic Jack Sparrow Costume
A truly authentic Captain Jack Sparrow costume is far from basic. Now, Jack didn't just have an eclectic style because he liked the boho look. If he wants to keep anything, it has to be on his person at all times. Otherwise, he'd have to set it down when hanging from chandeliers or jumping off cliffs. There are important resources tucked into his belts and sewn into his hair. The cosplayer featured used the Realistic Pirate Costume as a base and customized it from there. We especially like the added fur at the waist, a real-life accessory that many pirates used to attract any fleas, ticks, and lice that were hanging around. Once the fur was entirely infested, the pirates would simply throw it overboard. Disgusting? Yes. Ingenious? We thought so!

Jack Sparrow Hat
Weather worn and beaten by years of fighting and over-the-top antics, Jack Sparrow's Captain's hat is still a symbol of his power, no matter what it looks like. He also puts his hat to good use, using it to block out the sun, trap scorpions, and as a pitcher when he reaches cold, freshwater sources. His hat, or lack thereof, is often a topic of discussion throughout the movies. So should you choose to represent Jack Sparrow without his hat, you'll have to come up with a good reason why it's missing!
Jack Sparrow Wig
We've done a lot of thinking about Jack's hair. Buying his dreads may be the best way to go for most, because all that twisting and beading probably took place over a long time on sunny seas. In the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, he has twisted plenty of resources, tools, and souvenirs into his locks. Look closely and you'll see coins in a range of currencies, a handcuff key, and a bone carved into a "marlinspike", a tool used to mend sails while at sea. In short, his hair is like a seafaring version of a Swiss Army Knife. The featured wig features a good many of these wonders, including a long marlinspike and beads. But sewing on your own touches, like coins, charms, and even bones, can be a fun way to really make your Sparrow style pop!
Jack Sparrow Sword
Jack Sparrow might not be the best sword fighter but he is the luckiest. Jack Sparrow's sword is a bit longer than the traditional pirate cutlass, making sense because Captain Jack is more passionate about getting away unscathed than hurting anyone. Make sure you practice with your Pirates of the Caribbean sword before going out. We hope you won't get into any fights with it, but you gotta know how to pose like the seafaring dog you are!
Jack Sparrow Headscarf
A good scarf is one of the most useful items in a pirate's wardrobe. It's used every single day for sun protection on the sunny seas. It can also be dipped into cool waters and tied around the neck to cool you down. Use it to stop the flow of blood after getting clipped in a sword fight. You can even use it to signal for help after getting marooned on a tropical island! Layering the Jack Sparrow's bandana will be an important touch to your costume if there isn't a scarf integrated into your wig already.
Fun Facts About Captain Jack Sparrow
Between his slapstick hijinks and swift-witted jokes, it can be hard to get to know all the ins and outs of Captain Jack Sparrow. If you want the ultimate costume, you can get to know this character a little better by reading a few fun facts so that you can really get into character!
- Many of Jack Sparrow's legendary lines were completely improvised. One of the most consistent phrases that came from Johnny Depp's mind? That brassy yet brisk saying, "Savvy?". If you're feeling confident enough, maybe you can even adlib a few lines of your own!
- Johnny Depp wanted to make the character of Jack Sparrow a little rougher than the producers were ready to go. He knew right away that Sparrow should have gold teeth, so he went and had extra gold teeth installed behind his bosses' backs. Just goes to show that Sparrow was a rebel behind the scenes as well as in the movies!
- Don't try and stare into the sun like Jack Sparrow often does or you'll end up in an eye patch. Johnny Depp was actually wearing special sun protection contact lenses to protect him from the bright Caribbean sun.
- If you read the books, you'll find that Captain Jack Sparrow turned to piracy after refusing to participate in the slave trade.
- Jack Sparrow got his enchanted compass from the goddess Calypso in human form. Some may think he got the better deal, but we like to think Tia Dalma knew that he wouldn't know what his heart wanted sooner or later!
