We all wore black t-shirts with an iron on transfer I found on the Disigns thread (Mickey Pirate for DH, Minnie for the rest of us). I also bought little kits that contained an eye patch and a big hoop (clip on) earring for our girls ... they were around $4 in the gift shop onboard. We all wore the DCL bandanas. It was fun ... the kids felt like they were dressed up for pirates night and DH (who would NEVER dress up in full pirate gear ...) didn't feel like he was "too dressed up". Plus it was inexpensive and easy to pack.

My family and our awesome servers on our 2008 cruise. (Didn't have one from last year's cruise on this laptop)

Our next cruise will be Alaska, so I don't think we'll have room in our suitcases for the costumes, otherwise we'd be dressing up again!

I'm kind of thinking along the same lines Mike.

(He did end up going to the gift shop on the Magic for some accessories, though, b/c without it he just looked like he'd fallen into a really unfortunate bag of laundry). I wanted to turn "real" clothes (that I could wear in real life) into something pirate-y looking. I wore red denim capris; a top with flowy sleeves from the Banana Republic Outlet; a denim vest (Goodwill); a yellow scarf I already had, tied as a waist sash; giant gold hoop earrings (the biggest and cheapest I could find at Target); and a big brass key ($2 at Michaels) on a long necklace chain, and black flats.

When we went to dinner (first seating) we didn't really see any other adults dressed up... but by the time we left dinner, we saw a bunch of people more dressed up than we were!!

Love your outfit! I also try to find clothes I can wear in real life and make them pirate like. Your combination is very cute and I just might have to copy it a bit!

We did on our three day Dream but felt kind of silly since almost no other adults did. I am trying to decide if we should on our four day or should not bother until we do a seven day.

I started off just wearing a pirate themed tshirt and after two or three cruises I decided to order a custom pirate costume.

We dress up. It's fun to show our kids that we can be can be kids too. It's fun to take place in the party. I would feel out of place not dressing up.

Do what works for you.
