DIY Girl Pirate Costume

Looking for a fun and creative costume idea for your daughter’s next Halloween party or school event? Why not try a pirate costume? With a little creativity and DIY work, you can easily transform your little girl into a swashbuckling pirate queen!

Here’s how to make a DIY girl pirate costume:

Materials needed:

  • White t-shirt
  • Black leggings or pants
  • Red scarf or bandana
  • Black boots or shoes
  • Black felt fabric
  • Gold foam sheet
  • Black ribbon
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Black eyeliner


  1. To start, cut strips of the black felt fabric into thin long pieces. These will be used to create the “pirate” look. Glue them onto the t-shirt in a crisscross pattern on the chest and arms.
  2. Cut the gold foam sheet into a circle and glue it to the center of the t-shirt over the black strips. Let it dry for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.
  3. Take the black ribbon and tie it around the waist to create a belt. You can also glue on some gold buttons or patterns onto the ribbon to make it look more pirate-y.
  4. For the bottom half of the costume, have your daughter wear black leggings or pants along with black boots or shoes.
  5. Use the red scarf or bandana as a headband. Simply fold it into a triangle and wrap it around your daughter’s head, tying it at the back.
  6. To complete the look, use black eyeliner to create a “pirate” eye. Draw a black line above the eye and a dot underneath. You can also draw on a scar or some freckles to add more character to the costume.

And, voila! Your DIY girl pirate costume is complete. Your daughter will be the talk of the town at her next event!


  • You can also add some accessories such as a toy sword or eye patch to complete the costume.
  • If you want to add more layers to the costume, you can wear a white or black long sleeve shirt underneath the t-shirt.
  • If you don’t have a red scarf or bandana, you can use a red t-shirt or any other red fabric to create a headband.

With some creativity and DIY magic, your daughter can rock a fun and unique pirate costume. Happy DIY-ing!

If you’re planning a Halloween celebration and want to create your own costume, why not try a girl pirate costume? While store-bought costumes are convenient, they can be expensive and look like many other costumes. Making your own costume for a special occasion is fun and rewarding. With a few simple materials and accessories, you can make a unique and authentic pirate costume.

To start, choose a bright colored dress that has a long skirt. You can find such a dress at a thrift store, or make one yourself. Try a bold color like teal, mustard yellow, or red; or, select stripes or floral patterns for a nautical style. To create the effect of a pirate’s corset, wrap a wide ribbon around the midsection of the dress and tie it in the back.

To give your costume a touch of swashbuckling flair, add a pirate hat. Craft stores usually carry fabric trims that match or coordinate with the dress and can be used to make a pirate hat. If you’re really crafty, you can make a feathered hat of your own. Attach an eye patch to the hat with a bit of elastic for an instant pirate look.

No pirate costume is complete without a sword or a cutlass. Look for plastic or wooden swords at a costume shop, or make one out of cardboard or foam. Add a belt or sash to the dress and secure the sword in it. If you’d rather go for a parrot on your shoulder, look for a large stuffed animal to bring your costume to life.

Finally, it’s the accessories that will make your costume stand out. Choose chunky jewelry or antique-style pieces to complete the pirate look. Consider adding a bandanna, a faux leather purse, and/or a pair of earrings with skulls and crossbones to complete the ensemble.

Whether you choose to make your pirate costume or buy it ready-made, you’ll be sure to have a great time wearing it. Making a costume is a fun do-it-yourself project, and you’ll be sure to stand out in the crowd this Halloween.
