If you’re from Lake Charles, then you know about the Louisiana Pirate Festival. And if you’re going to celebrate like a pirate, you have to look like a pirate. These are some of the components you’ll need for the perfect pirate costume.

Bandana

Many pirates boast bandanas. Of course, it’s up to you how you wear it. You can tie it over your eyes as a nod to the “Dread Pirate Roberts” or sloppily around your head like Captain Jack Sparrow.

Hat

If bandanas aren’t your pirate-style, you can opt for the dramatic skull-and-crossbones hat. You can also swap between a hat and a bandana throughout the day.

Ripped Clothing

A pirate goes through a lot—and so does their clothing. Whether you choose cutoff pants or a long skirt, you’ll need to make sure that your clothing is somewhat tattered to show off the pirate’s life you’ve survived.

Eyepatch

A pirate’s eyepatch represents their battle scars, which of course means that you’ll need one. An eyepatch gives off the ultimate “don’t mess with me” vibe.

Sword

You can’t be a pirate without the pirate’s classic weapon. Whether you have a small dagger or large sword as a prop, you’ll need some kind of sword to give off pirate power. Just make sure it’s not real.

With these accessories, you’ll have everything you need to pull off a convincing pirate costume. Nissan of Lake Charles hopes to see you and your costume at the Louisiana Pirate Festival!
