    OK....

    ... the tux poll got me thinking... we can see that DIS enthusiasts are more likely to pack a tux than the avergae DCL patrons. The average for a DIS patron initially being maybe 48% likely versus 10% for non-DIS patron based on eyeballed estimates from DIS folks with an opinion.

    But... what about PIRATE COSTUMES? Among our activly posting/voting DIS community members I'd like to try and get an idea of who brings/packs a Pirate costume ... or part of a costume for the cruise? So here is my latest query for your armchair entertainment.

    FYI... in the past it seems the average ratio of hits to votes has been 10 hits for every vote on threads with a good general appeal. And for the polls with less general appeal the ratio increases... no surprise there eh?

    At any rate, thanks in advance for either your interest or wry humor! Oh yeah... if you're so inclined than please post your FAVORITE image of YOUR PIRATE COSTUME(s)! Here's ONE of mine from Sept 2005!....

    Although you can't tell from these images ~ we acccented the weapons and children with several glow sticks for the on deck party. This photo was taken just before dinner w/o glow sticks. Matching costumes that were kindly picked up for us by a thoughtful DIS family we met through the DIS cruise meet! And as a CORRECTION to the question in the poll that makes reference to the free RED DCL bandanas - it seems they have substituted the red ones with glow in the dark print for plain black ones. I missed that.... :confused3

    DW and I will be doing nice pirate costumes, like something from Party City or some place like that. She may even make our costumes herself. But, we will definitely be dressing up for Pirate Night. pirate:

    We packed full pirate costumes including flags... I also bought a bunch of pirate tattoos and gold coins to pass out to all the kids. They were a big hit!

    Here is my DH and son (2) I asked my husband if he would dress up for pirate night... he said no. Then I said, what if your costume was sweats and a tee shirt... he said ok... and Mr. Smee was born. I took house paint and painted the shirt with the stripes and cut sweats of.. Nothing he could say! lol

    We love the party but wear tropical shirts for the occasion. Just an FYI our bandannas were black with skull and crossbones in April - we tried to wear these but they kept falling off.

    We don't know what the DD's will wear in March, we know they won't fit into these anymore.

    Since we are talking pirates here, I flipped over the calendar above my desk this morning and look what the photo on the calendar is, it was so cute I had to take a photo of this. Sorry for the flash glare, but in front of the bear is the bounty he "collected."

    This is our assistant server, Teodore, and DD. For pirate night she wore a peasant style blouse, skull jewelry, and a pair of flowing gouchos to complete the look. DD loves pirates, so this was her favorite night on the ship.

    We don't get dressed up in full-out pirate costumes, but we did and will wear matching pirate shirts that we copied from someone on the DIS. Enough to get into the festivities, but also not too much for DH and DS to handle! :teeth:

    We also had some pirate hats, a sword, and several eye patches for those that wanted to wear them, even though they were not in this picture. Our girls started out wearing the bandanas, but then I guess they took them off after dinner. We loved Pirate night. So much fun!

    We will be on the May 21 Wonder. I ordered pirate costumes from buycostumes for my dd8 and ds4. For my dd1, I think we are going to cut up an old pair of jeans, haven't been able to find her a costume. Not sure if my husband and I will dress up.
