Pirate costume for Carnival 2018


We will start off with a rather simple costume, but also quite popular when Carnival arrives. We are obviously talking about a pirate costume that we can put together with a white blouse, a white skirt and the appropriate accessories.

If we are inspired by the image we see above, we can create this costume by wearing one of those white shirts without sleeves and a long skirt. It can be striped like the one in the photo or be in black or burgundy. You will also need boots (or high heeled boots) and if you want you can add a black vest.

In a costume shop, and without spending too much money, we can buy a headscarf that matches the color of the skirt, a patch for one eye, and a pirate sword or a gun.

We will show you how to do the makeup for this type of costume. You can choose to watch this tutorial that we show you now.

Anyway, we still have to wear a costume and, therefore, we suggest the following: for you to be a simple cowgirl.

Wear tight jeans, boots, a blouse like the one you see above (or similar) and you are ready to go! You just need to add the essential accessories such as the cowboy hat, the vest, the belt and the gun. Do that and you will look perfect.

Just bare in mind you will be wearing a cowgirl hat.

To achieve the look of the picure above is easy, since it will involve wearing clothes that are shattered. Whether it’s a dress or jeans and a T-shirt, the key is to rip the clothes, stain them and throw a little artificial blood in them as well.


Perhaps the difficulty lies in the makeup. There are several tutorials and videos on the Internet for this, but the key’d be to get a very pale foundation for the face, some artificial blood and dark eyeshadows to be able to draw dark circles and that you look haggard. The best thing you can do is wear a dirty messy hair.

Another very good option for the hair is that you leave it without washing for at least a week, then you card your hair properly and then apply some powder throughout the hair so that you look like as you’ve been a zombie for a very long time.
