For my 10k 2.0 post, I thought I'd make a fun thread. I've been meaning to show of pictures of my Piratitude, as I've got a fairly good amateur pirate regalia set up. Of course re-enactors and rennfaire people have better ones, but we work with what we have, don't we?
So, I'm posting pictures of that. And encourage everyone to post pictures of themselves (as they are comfortable) in their full, or partial, regalia. Perhaps just show off what items you have so far, and complain about what you need, and how expensive hats are. This thread will of course lend itself to discussion of piratical apparel, and where to get it, shortcuts, etc. Spread the wealth, and all that.
So, here we go: He's A Pirate!At a meeting, proposing and explaining a resolutionThis one shows off the cuffWithout the coat: The causal Pirate. Also wearing a name tag.Explaining something about my boots to someone
I also will wear the hat pretty much anywhere I can. So, while in high school, not really much on weekdays. But weekends and vacations, it's on all the time. on the People Movers at DisneyAt an Obama rally in October '08
Hats are from Captain Jack's Pirate Hats.
Very good quality and variety of designs, though expensive, and even more so if you want it waxed and sealed for waterproofing.
I bought the coat
from the Pyramid Collection.
Besides that and a few shirts though, they don't have too much pirate stuff for men. It's more of a magic/fantasy catalogue for females, really. But online (or not) catalogs are good places to find these kinds of things. My shirt is from the local Party City. You can find some good stuff at local costume shops, but you have to really look. For instance, their "boots" are just plastic tops you put on top of sneakers to make it look like a boot but not really. I'll post a picture of my earlier costume later. *shudders*
But they usually will have a poofy shirt or two that are actually fairly decent.
So, what sartorial splendor can you share?
