It's no secret that a pirate costume is always a good choice for any costumed occasion. After all, who wouldn't want to look like they live on the open water, do whatever suits them, and answers to no kings? But, have you ever stopped to think about what kind of pirate to be? We'd have to say this Sexy Spanish Pirate Costume is the perfect swashbuckling ensemble for your Halloween party!
To find out why, open your history books to the "Golden Age of Piracy," which is basically where the pop culture idea of pirates comes from. During this period, the Spaniards were the head honchos in the Caribbean, and Spanish galleons (huge, heavy cargo ships) taking treasure back to Spain were some of the hottest targets for pirates (because "treasure"). We know you're still asking why Spanish pirates are such cool pirates to dress as, since it'd be kinda shady of them to plunder their own country's ships. Well, it's because many of them actually attacked other pirates that had stolen treasure from Spanish ships! So, many Spanish buccaneers, like the infamous and wickedly named Amaro Felipe, were actually "pirate-pirates" which make them pretty fearsome!
Phew, sorry about the lecture, but we love talking about pirate history, almost as much as you'll love dressing up in this sassy swashbuckler outfit. This bold, ruffled costume comes with almost everything you need to make every other pirate you meet throw down their arms. Just add a pair of fierce buckled boots and a pirate sword, and you'll be the hottest marauder on the Spanish Main!
I absolutely loved this costume. There were no issues whatsoever. It's fairly short, so I suggest you wear some boy shorts or or something to cover your rear in case you bend over. I also won the best costume contest at a Halloween party that I attended.
I bought this costume for 2015 Halloween and I loved it. I loved how it looked on the model with a petticoat so I bought one and it made a big difference in my costume. When it arrived the hat was flat and flimsy and the feather was really small so I put a 20 gauge wire throughout the red trim and added a larger feather I purchased from Jo-Anne Fabric. I also bough the black and gold boots to go with it. At the end of the night I was a finalist in costume contest. I got so many compliments on it.
Generally I wear a size 6. After reading reviews, I determined it was better to try a larger size so that it would fit around my chest (I am a 36D). I ordered the L and it fits well. A medium might have worked too, but I like that there is some stretch and give now. Only disappointment was the hat was a bit crushed, but it seems to be shaping up so that I can wear it (no feather as pictured either). Also, no tulle under the dress. So order one if you want it. I am very excited to wear this to a costume party this weekend.
