It’s no secret that a pirate costume is always a good choice for any costumed occasion. After all, who wouldn’t want to look like they live on the open water, do whatever suits them, and answers to no kings? But, have you ever stopped to think about what kind of pirate to be? We’d have to say this Sexy Spanish Pirate Costume is the perfect swashbuckling ensemble for your Halloween party!
To find out why, open your history books to the “Golden Age of Piracy,” which is basically where the pop culture idea of pirates comes from. During this period, the Spaniards were the head honchos in the Caribbean, and Spanish galleons (huge, heavy cargo ships) taking treasure back to Spain were some of the hottest targets for pirates (because “treasure”). We know you’re still asking why Spanish pirates are such cool pirates to dress as, since it’d be kinda shady of them to plunder their own country’s ships. Well, it’s because many of them actually attacked other pirates that had stolen treasure from Spanish ships! So, many Spanish buccaneers, like the infamous and wickedly named Amaro Felipe, were actually “pirate-pirates” which make them pretty fearsome!
Phew, sorry about the lecture, but we love talking about pirate history, almost as much as you’ll love dressing up in this sassy swashbuckler outfit. This bold, ruffled costume comes with almost everything you need to make every other pirate you meet throw down their arms. Just add a pair of fierce buckled boots and a pirate sword, and you’ll be the hottest marauder on the Spanish Main!
