Me, as pirate. It was so fun! I've always wanted to be a pretend pirate, so it was a dream come true. I bought the hat and the tattoo sleeves new, but everything else is thrift store. Harley Davidson boots (the only heels I own now): $4. Leather pants with rip in butt: $7. Shirt that I cut up: $2. And then a few accessories, like earrings, shell necklaces, and one necklace made of coffee beans and walnut shells and some other kinds of seeds: $10 I probably spent a total of about $35-40. And I won first prize at the party we went to! I got a jar of homemade brandied pears, but even better than that was the adulation of everyone there (the judging was done by clapping).
The studious pirate. Sue did my makeup. My earrings are so old school that they're clip-on. I braided all my hair except my bangs.
