There are several variations of pirate costumes for kids, men and women. There’s the pirate wench, the Buccaneer, Captain Hook, the Cutthroat and the Caribbean costumes to name a few. In recent years, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, and Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow pirate character in those movies, have fueled the popularity of the pirate outfit even more so.
The popularity of the pirate stems from a rich history steeped in high adventure and menace, both of which tend to peak the curiosity and men, women and children alike. Thousands of years before the Spanish began hauling silver, gold and other treasures from the New World back to Spain, pirates sailed the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, setting up pirate communities in Cilicia, which is now part of the country of Turkey. There were Barbary Corsairs and Vikings who sailed all over the Atlantic and terrorized European coastlines, and they were also active in the waters surrounding the continent of Asia. As ships began to be built bigger and better, piracy began spreading into the New World. And the history of piracy has become deeply embedded into out culture and myths.
For men, the pirate is a good choice because it complements their inner “wildcat,” and for the ladies it suits the same purpose – to bring out the “bad girl” in them, all in the name of good, clean fun. In addition, there is just something that is downright sexy about pirates, and when many people think of pirates, images of high adventure, danger and excitement tend to flash through our minds. Such excitement is something we all tend to fantasize about or be in search of in our daily lives but, for the most part, it tends to elude us. So, Halloween is the one time of year we can don the pirate attitude and act out our fantasies, sharing in good times that will be provide a lifetime of memories.
