Pirate costumes are a staple of Halloween; it seems like every year we see an abundance of swashbucklers, in both adults and little ones. With Samhain coming upon us, many are looking for the best deals on a full outfit, which can get pricey, especially if you add in props like swords and parrots or authenticate it with real leather boots.
WholesaleHalloweenCostumes has a pretty big selection to choose from for every age, with prices ranging from $19.99 to $179. Included in the choices are “sexy” costumes, if that’s your thing, and several styles for kids. They also offer free 2-day shipping for those of us who have left costume decisions a little late.
Party City also has a pretty good selection to choose from and, at this time, don’t have as many “out of stock” items as WholesaleHalloweenCostumes. They offer free shipping right now and $9.99 3-day shipping, with prices on styles starting at less than $10 and going up to nearly $200. For about $40, you can get a boys’ ghost ship pirate costume that comes complete with shirt, pants, mask, belt, boot covers, and bandana.
Of course, if you find yourself running out of time and can’t wait for a costume to be shipped–or don’t want to count on it arriving before the big night–there are options of the homemade variety. There are tons of ideas on Pinterest for easy costumes that don’t look thrown together, and the good news is that you can probably find the items you need from a local thrift store.
