Pirate Costumes​ for Kids

PiratePirate Costumes for Kids

A great topic to do with children is pirates.  Who doesn’t like to get dressed up as a pirate? In fact, I wouldn’t say how old I was when I and a group of friends dressed up as pirates and hired a barge for the day, swinging out plastic cutlasses around, having a great time and getting lots of encouragement from passers-by of all ages.  So why not give some thought to pirate costumes for kids – get them in the mood. They can have a great time, writing ransom notes, counting up their pieces of eight, calculating how much treasure they will get once they have ransacked 8 more ships, etc., etc.

Pirate costumes are ideal for any themed children’s fancy dress occasion, pirate parties, Halloween parties, World Book Day or just having fun at home.

Make your own pirate costume

Here is a super idea for a pirate costume you can make yourself in under an hour.

It’s a pirate’s life for me!

The instructions are here – in Spanish – I think.  However, I think you can follow the pictures easily enough.


What about a silver pirate’s hook?

This one from http://craftyourhappiness.com/2016/09/14/ahoy-mateys-it-be-talk-like-pirate-day/ is pretty impressive!

You do need to find a silver paper cup.  (Actually – you could probably use any colour you like.)

This one is more do-able and fun to watch as well!


Maybe you don’t want to make the costume?  So let’s see what is available:

(All of these are from Amazon UK and I get a small percentage of anything you spend but this doesn’t affect the price you pay.)

IKALI Kids Pirate Costumes, Boys Stripey High Seas Caribbean Buccaneer Fancy Dress Up Outfit for Party


I don’t know why this is described as a boy’s costume – I think it would work equally as well for a girl.  There are just 3 pieces to the costume, hat, t-shirt, and trousers even though it looks like more.

At the point of writing, this is available for half-price – you might be lucky.
