Did you hear about the new pirate movie?

It's rated ARRRRRRRRRRRR for too much booty.

I was able to see Pirates III this weekend. Nothing better than seeing Johnny Depp on the big screen for 2 and 1/2 hours. Ahhh...

Anyway, in preparation for the movie, some friends of mine threw a Pirates party complete with a contest for the best costume. I need to confess: I love dressing up. I am only encouraged further if there's any chance for costume competition. I had to scrounge around the house a bit but what do you think?

I took an old pair of pants from my concert band days (Why we still have them 10 years after I graduated is a mystery.)

And tucked them into Johnny-Cherie's conservative boots.

I added an Old Navy shirt in the Rainbow Bright variety,

And covered that with a ridiculously over-sized, mismatched shirt.

I accessorized with an eye patch, one of Julia-Gulia's earrings, a belt, and a toy sword

Next I needed a handkerchief. I opted for red but you could always choose psychedelic if you happen to be a pirate stuck in the 60's.

I download a skull/cross bone picture from the internet and taped it to a Zorro hat turned (glued) pirate.

I borrowed a stuffed toy monkey and what did I get?

ARRRRR ya ready?

Oh, and I won Best Costume.

NOW GO WALK THE PLANK!!!

so was the movie pretty good? I think you should have worn the costume to the theater. I wore a star wars costume to the opening of the last Harry Potter movie. The dressed up Harry Potter fans kind of glared at us. good times.

Nice pirateness. The last time I was at a costume party, I went as Zoro. It was a great get-up (all items came from the Sally Anne), but the contest winner was a white guy who dressed up as Huggy Bear.

Love the pirate look. I showed it to my daughters and they were impressed. I'm also a major Johnny fan, Orlando Bloom too, come to think of it. Time to see the movie ...
