Pirates don't wear glasses! Those were the first words out of my five year old's mouth about my costume. But more about that later on in this post.
ME, IN THE CLASSIC CAPTAIN MORGAN POSE. Don't tell anyone, but that rum bottle in my hand is actually Whalers coconut rum.
The beads were woven into my actual beard and they were a hell of a lot easier to get in than out. I used old fashioned moustache wax to make mine stand out like that, the chest hair is real, Mr. Smee from Peter Pan wore glasses so why not me, the costume cost about fifteen dollars top to bottom and the clothes were all from the thrift store with the exception of the tattoo sleeves which aren't really shown in any picture but trust me they looked cool. They came from Wal-mart and cost about a third of the total price of the costume. But still, I spent more on rum than anything else.
