Trivia: Did you know… that Jack Sparrow’s iconic pistol isn’t a prop? It’s a real weapon!

Do you find yourself humming along when you hear the famous Pirates of the Caribbean theme? Then you’ll love our selection of pirate costumes

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise returned with a stunning fifth movie, in which Captain Jack Sparrow goes out to look for Poseidon’s Trident. Jack is seeking to free the Black Pearl from its tiny glass bottle prison. In addition, the terrifying Captain Salazar and his ghost crew, who escaped from the Devil’s Triangle, seek revenge upon Jack Sparrow.

The movie has been praised for being beautiful and fun. A lot of talented designers worked on the movie: the costumes in Dead Man Tell No Tales are simply incredible!

Whether you’re looking to recreate a costume from the movies or to create your own, take a look at our pirate costume ideas!
