      Gar, Thank you and welcome aboard… there be and extra share of limes and doubloons for you autistic-hook(hee hee).

      Except for the obvious plastic hooks, swords, and flintlocks – we have created everything out of repurposed clothing items – including the hats! A thrift shop’s women’s department is a treasure trove of pirate garb – if you look from the right angle. For the hats, I have always watched out for those made of felt with a wire sewn into the outer edge of the brim; they are easily molded.

    Ahoy there matey! This be t’ finest pirate since Long John Silver’s scurvy crew sailed the Spanish Main!

    So impressed with the costumes — wish I could be that creative.
