    I bought it at The Spirit Halloween Store. They have a website and probably still have it available.

    It was a nice lite costume on a steamy Florida evening, but it would have worked well if it was chilly out too with some leggings and a long sleeve shirt.

    Have fun. :wizard:

    Thank you. We're debating BBB or this as dd (8) wants to be Elizabeth Swan, but she has seen all 3 movies and I can't figure out which style she is referring to. She loved this outfit on your child.

    Ok I am hoping to get an appt for our May trip. My son is in a pirate stage. We even did his room in pottery barn style pirates. Fingers crsooed that there'll be a slot! He will go crazy for this. He has a pirate costume and Peter Pan costume that he wears everyday in the playroom.

    Has anyone noticed the price on the Hook costume??

    my DS will be 6 weeks shy of 3 years old when we go - is it still impossible to get him in?

    I haven't been there since 2009, but it used to be $45. Then you would have to add on the hook for $3, and I think the hat may have been extra. With the old Captain's package they grouped all of that together. I'm not sure how they are handling it today.

    We were there yesterday - DS had a GREAT time and looked amazing! His "pirate expert" makeup guy was super and really hammed it up with him.

    Costumes - there were only three available directly at the pirate league, one for girls (DD got that) and two for boys... neither looked like Hook, but maybe that one was around the corner in the bigger shop. At any rate, they were all between $55 and $65 - ouch! But they're cute!

    My only very minor complaint is that DS chose the face with the all-white skull-like look (forget the name of that one)... he looked *so* cool, but when we tried to take the makeup off later the black stuff around his eyes was painted all the way into the corners, the edge of his eyelids... honestly, I don't get my eyeliner that close! So, it took forever to get off, and he ended up with a thin rim of eyeliner for the rest of the day and puffy eyes from the effort of getting it off.... he sort of looked like a druggie (lol). So maybe if you choose that face, ask that they go easy right around the eyes!

    :rotfl: Yes, it's called the TPL eye liner look (we've all had it). Check out the first post for tips on how to remove the black paint!!

    I shared your pictures with Ken, the Pirate Master, he remembers your DD being quite the pirate and stating that she was not scared of anyone! Thanks for posting them!! :rotfl:

    How much are the photos you have to purchase in order to get the rest of the photos added to your photopass card?

    also, do they take as many photos here as they do at BBB? If I remember right, BB takes pictures during your entire progression through the process. Seems like they took 25 or so pics 2 years ago for some friends of mine.

    I'm so glad I found this thread. We just read about this and wanted to do this for DS. He was pirate for last year's MNSSHP and for Halloween, so this will be lots of fun for him.

    The photo pricing is listed in the first post of this thread, it's easier to keep pricing there in case things change.

    No, unlike the BBB, they do not take portraits during the process, only at the very end. They'll take a couple posed portraits, usually only 2 or 3.

    I have an appointment for my ds on the first night of MNSSHP for 3:20, the latest that was available so far. Here is my question if I do not plan to attend Magic Kingdom for that day, except for the party, will I be able to get in for my appointment with just the party ticket, since they let those last year in with a party ticket at 4?

    I was told we could not enter using our party ticket until 4pm. If we want to enter earlier we would have to use our regular park pass. I guess we will have to use our park pass because my boys have appointments at Pirates league at 3:10pm. The latest was 3:20 I believe.
