Hi IshWitch (et all),

I was reading your profile and saw that you list "Pirate" as your costume... so I thought I would share a picture of me (for your enjoyment) a few years back masquerading as a Pirate at the Club Med in the Bahamas... "Shiver Me Timbers!"

Nice costume SD!

Since we're sharing, here's my motley from my acting gig in the indie B-movie called NinjaPirate.

Sidenote: See the snow? The script called for a hot day, so while the crew had coats and shot the illusion of a warm sand bar...our thin costumes made it possible to cut glass with our nipples!

Awesomely Rockin' Costume SD! Do you own that? or was it a rental or something? It is beautiful.

My halloween theme for my yard and party is Pirates (with skeletons) this year. So I will be in need of a Pirate costume. I've been looking around, but I may end up making one, depends on my free time, which lately has been zilch! :)

Hey Sickie, how did they make a frozen Lake Mich look like a hot summer day? That is too funny! Our youngest is an aspiring movie director, we hope to get him in the next rotation at FullSail in Orlando. One of his friends that just graduated with an AS there is already working on a pilot for this fall. Our son went to a casting call for POTC last November, but they needed people who had passports. That would have been so awesome!

Keep those Pirate pics comin' everybody! It's giving me great ideas!

I made/assembled it. I make most of my costumes. I usually buy components, like at value village (but the Poet shirt I am wearing was purchased in Paris at a Period Shop) and then I modify and embellish to get the desired look I want.

I wonder how the director explained your "cold air breath vapors" in a hot dry setting?? :googly:

Did the movie ever get released? And are you sure "B" movie is the correct classification...not much of a crew there unless that was B-cam... seems more like a "D" movie - LOL

LOL As far as I know, the breath wasn't seen because of the angle to the sky- but what do I know? heh

Fullsail is supposed to be a good school, however I haven't visited it. Tell him to keep on going for his dreams!

Yep that was and is me in the last picture.

Heyya SD. :) Yep. Small cast and crew. Supposedly released this July at some point. Small indie less than an hour long. Hey, I love being in B-movies as much as I love viewing them! heh The pay is just icing on the cake. I think they are planning to actually release it for free viewing on the web. (?)

Ok, this is really me in Cheese land. I am the good looking one. Ok, none of them are me. I am the one who started running when they started pointing and running after me. It just wasn't pretty. But, I had to get the shot weather I lost my life or not.

That's what I do!

Makes for such a much better costume.

I've always made all of our costumes.

When our kids were little our oldest's favorite costume was a redcoat soldier. A girls brushed nylon fleece bathrobe from good will with white felt for the cuffs and edging. Gold craft painted on buttons. A musket bought at Disney World. A tri-corn hat from a trip to a museum. Baseball pants with white soccer sox. But the best find was a pair of guys shoes that actually had a big buckle for 50 cents at a charity store!

Please enlighten me, okay?

Do you portray pirates because they are neat characters to dress as or do you believe that they are indeed scary beings. I know that in history, they were definitely persons to dread, but the pictures you've displayed here are quite friendly in nature even though a few have on skull masks. Please note that I am not in anyway downing your creations. They are very nice. I only ask because I've been comtemplating a theme for next year. (Yes, I'm thinking of next season. Makes things easier when you go to Spencer's After Halloween Sales ;) )
Pirates are characters that I enjoy. But, not the lovely, well-dressed, jolly creatures I often see. I've always loved the flesh-rotting, foul-mouthed, pillory and plunder type pirates.
Maybe what I'm looking for are more Zombie Pirates than anything else, ya think?

I'm going to dress my skellies as pirates and design some scenes around the theme for my yard this year as well as have a pirate theme to my party.

So I guess you'd say that my pirates will be post zombie state! LOL! I know pirates were horrible raping/pillaging beasts, same as vikings, but I have always been fond of both, choosing to see them in the romanticized light that history has given them. Isn't that the American way? ;) I am the same with all of the classic monsters, it must be why I prefer the classics to the new monsters of Michael and Freddie.

Well, Honey...

I must be from another country because the uglier, nastier and meaner the better which would probably explain my two former choices of husbands. :eek:
