We weren't sure what to expect on our first cruise (Alaska) so we just wore pirate Mickey shirts that I made from a design I found here on the Dis. Plus my children had hooks for their hands. We fit in pretty well as far as attire because a lot of people don't dress up on the Alaska cruises (a few go all out but many don't do anything)...but next time around we're going to do more! It was fun!
The family with Captain Hook and Mr. Smee
The children acting piratey!
DH and myself. I made the costumes
Some really good friends of ours. The Jack peeking over from the back,is the DCL cast member,the one in front is a friend of ours.
I have a costume, will wear it again in July. Granddaughter has a costume, grandson just wants a pirate t-shirt and a hat. DH has pirate mickey ears bandana and wears a pirate t-shirt. We didn't dress up on the Alaska cruise last June though. Will dress up in July for Pirate night though.
LOVE the costumes, how fun!!
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.
This was our group on our MR cruise:
and DH & I on our Hawaii cruise:
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.
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'm planning on dressing up for my 3 day and this post worries me
I started off just wearing a pirate themed tshirt and after two or three cruises I decided to order a custom pirate costume.
I think we will
I will dressing up in a full costume with my kids on our 3 day Dream cruise : )
We will all be wearing costumes.
We will all be in costume too! It's alot of fun being a pirate!!!
We cruised the Fantasy last October and our costumes did double duty for MNSSHP.
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.
