Pirate Outfits: A Treasure Chest's Worth of Value

We know that one of the most popular Renaissance costumes of all time is pirate outfits. It is easy to see why: Imagining that you are a swashbuckler on the seven seas can be a heck of a lot of fun! You get to have sword fights, assemble your mangy crew, loot and plunder, look for buried treasure, and most importantly Ė You get to talk like a pirate. When it comes to being a pirate, there are no specific uniforms, so you are free to outfit yourself in any manner you see fit.
