Costumes of Blackbeard
If this Halloween you are wanting to be a pirate – but a pirate that is not too very famous, one good option is to try a costume of Blackbeard from Pirates of the Caribbean. Blackbeard is an especially recognizable choice as one of his main features is that he has a long dark (some would say black!) colored beard.
Let’s take a closer inspection at the look you are trying to achieve….here is an image of one of the costumes worn by Blackbeard in the movie. Notice how the outfit is very serious looking…and actually also quite plain. The focus of the whole look is unquestionable going to be the face…
Now that you’ve see the look you’re trying to achieve in the photo, let’s take a closer examination of this pirate’s face, and what you’ll want it to look like. Look at the pictures below. Notice how the beard is not only long, but also has what appears to be dreads. It also comes all the way up the side of his face and blends with his actual hair.
The hat is a key addition to the costume. Notice again the lack of adornment on the hat. Keep it simple and black!
Pirate boots – or more specifically buckaneer boots will complete the costume.
And don’t forget a few accessories… one that was worn in the movie was a large dark ring..here’s a picture…
