It is professional theater grade makeup, with that said, it can still run and smudge during the day. The Boney and Multi-eye will smudge the most. The smokey and black eyes are perfect for a hot day.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the great info in this thread.
I wasn't sure if my soon to be 4 year old b/g twins would do well at the Pirate League, but seeing all your photos and hearing everyone's good experiences has helped convince me this would be a memorable event. My daughter is the princess type but she's warming up to the idea of having a sword...

I called today and had no problem getting the exact time and day I wanted. The twins will be going in at the same time, too.

My only concern is that my son will never let me put a temporary tatoo on him, though he has been OK if people paint on his hand. He can also be shy at first meeting so glad to hear how good the CMs are at working with our little guys!

On the phone I was told to bring our own brushes. Do the CMs do the girls hair in any special way? I couldn't tell from the photos, other than seeing most of the girls wear their bandanas...

Thanks!

Don't worry about taking a brush; they read the same spiel if you're booking at BBB or TPL. There is a little twist done for girls, nothing too big. The pirates will not use a brush, even if you bring one, they'll just use their fingers.

Thanks! That's good to know. My DD hates having her hair brushed and this was one of the reasons we decided to not do BBB and try the League for her.

We have done this and it is my son's (4) favorite by far thing in all Disneyworld. Today he wanted to go back to the Pirate's League (and see the bad bad white faced pirate), tomorrow he wants to go back to the Pirate's League, don't ask him what he wants to do or what his favorite ride is, this is all he wants. My daughter (6) did it and really enjoyed it too, although she's not half as obsessed as her brother.

They do it really well, I have to say. It is a whole "experience". My son remained in character the whole day and got lots of attention. We did Pirates of the Caribbean afterwards and he was the entertainment at the queue, he practiced earnestly in Sparrow's tutorial... it was lots of fun. And very good value, I mean, only the "treasure" chain they give them was over 15$ in the pirate shop next door.

yeah, I was shocked at the quality of the madallion necklace, heavy metal not cheap stuff. I was worth it. We just went last month. I had only made an appointment for my boys (DD had done BBB 2 days earlier) welll she wanted to do it to, so they took her right in with the boys no appointment. I was so impressed and thankful for helping me avoid a possible toddler melt down.

I was hoping to get your opinions. I will be with dd at BBB at 8, DS's apt at PL is for 9. I can only assume that I won't make it to his apt, I can't guarantee that we will be there. DD has the photoshoot after her apt as well.
This being said, I have read (I assume I read it here) that there will be a photo Pass photog there. Is it silly that I give dh to give the photog a little note from me with a tip just saying to load up on pictures as Im not there? I don't know the 'rules' of the photopass. I just want lots of pictures since I won't be there. Im hoping dh will be taking lots of video too.

I am not 100% sure since this is our first trip but I don't there there is a photopass person at PL the way they are at BBB. I could be wrong but I thought I had read it several times. I am a little disappointed too. DD has BBB while DS has PL. I will miss DS's transformation but I think it is best to do it this way instead of taking 2 hours from a day when the kids won't be doing anything while the other is getting made over. DH has promised he will take tons of pictures.

Just thought I would tell everyone BuyCostumes.com is having a buy one
get one free on their clearance costumes. I just bought two really cute
kids pirate costumes and got them both for 24.99 including shipping. They
had boys, girls and adult costumes.

That's good to hear, are the sizes pretty accurate? I forgot to
mention that the sale ends July 25th.

I bought DS their pirate skeleton costume a few weeks ago. I ordered it in a small (he is 7 and weighs about 50 pounds) and it is a touch big, but he's a skinny little thing, so I would say they are accurate

I intentionally bought my DS's Pirate costume a size big when I ordered it. I was worried about how much he would grow since we don't go till Dec. Not to mention that MIL is a professional seamstress...so she said to get it big and she can take it in when we stop by on our way to WDW. The Rosette costume I picked up for DD is perfect. I really do think their costumes are true to size.
