I recently attended a Pirate Comic Con event and wanted to dress up as a pirate. I managed to put together a costume using items of clothing from local charity/thrift shops. My mum made me a pirate hat from an old straw hat. I also had my handmade treasure map which I previously blogged about. I also bought a plastic sword for my outfit.
My mum took me to the beach to get some good photos with the pirate costume on.
Here is the link to my pirate map:
