"Arrr, 'tis a mighty fine hat ye be wearin', matey." Who hasn't longed to hear those words? If you've always wanted to be a pirate for a costume party, Halloween, or International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th), then dream no more. We have the pirate costume you'd be willing to walk the plank for. And to top off that costume, we offer quite a few might fine pirate hats to choose from.
The typical pirate hat is a large tricorn. They come in quite a few varieties including black or brown, cloth or leather-like. Often they come with an attached bandanna or headband lining or trim. Pirates were often a flamboyant lot, so some hats even have beading or hair braids. If you don't want a full hat there are separate bandannas.
Pirates are a popular costume for women. There are rough-looking women pirates, pirate wenches, and sexy pirates. With all the pirate costumes for women it's no wonder that there are a lot of hats for women too. Some are not much different from the men's hats. Others are lacier and more feminine. There are also mini hats that clip on or are held in place by a headband.
Pirate costumes can be pretty elaborate. They can include many layers of jackets and shirts, big boots or boot covers, and lots of accessories. But pirate costumes can also be made very basic and cheaply. If you're dressing for a costume day at work or for a one time party you might not want to go all out on a costume. An eye patch, a pirate sword, and a pirate hat can be enough. For these costumes you can get one of the cheaper pirate hats that are not meant to be taken as seriously.
