Pirate Costume

Get a sneak peek at this DIY toddler pirate costume for Halloween!

I trust that everyone has had a spectacular Halloween!

This one was so much fun for us.

This was our little man’s first time to go trick or treating!

I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but he absolutely LOVED it.

He was basically walking around the neighborhood chanting, “CANDY!”

We started off in the wagon to which the hubs geniously hooked up our candy corn lights.

There was no missing us walking up and down the road!

My little pirate was sooooo cute!

(Ignore the bribe candy in his hand and half a mustache…)

His costume ended up being super simple to pull together.

Blue and white striped onesie

Thermal long sleeve white shirt (b/c it was a little chilly)

Inexpensive black sweatpants from Walmart cut with ragged ends

Pirate hat

Foam sword


Vest, boots, and loot bag made from felt (see how I made them here!)

Belt made from red ribbon

Failed attempt at a cool pirate mustache

(I made the ‘stache only to have him pull half of it off before we ever left the house. It was going to take too long to get the other half off easily so we just went with it!)

I was hoping if he wore a mustache then the little man would be more likely to keep his on.

We can see how well that went…

I have been loving all of the homemade Halloween preggo shirts I’ve been seeing in blogland so I decided to get in on the action.

I had some cool demon horns to wear so I made myself a fun little demon peeking out of my belly.

Did I mention my horns lit up?

Too fun!

I thought it would be really fun to have a treasure map on the back of the vest.

I’m loving how it turned out!

Faux boots.

With these, the little guy was able to wear his regular shoes while these made it look as though he was wearing pirate boots.

They ended up looking great!

The full tutorial for these can be found here.

And, of course, you can’t have a pirate without a bag of loot!

So this is his custom loot bag for all of his gold coins.

Full tutorial for the loot bag here.

LOVE that your horns lit up!! And your son makes just about the cutest lil pirate I've ever seen!! He sounds just like my Little Man! Instead of saying "Trick or Treat", he would just scream, "MORE!" when they opened the door!!
