Pirate Costumes for Kids

Pirate fancy dress ideas for boys and girls (or lads and lassies if you're a pirate!)

Ahoy, me hearties. Pirate-themed parties are very popular these days, and whether you're hosting a party (maybe with a Pirates Of The Caribbean theme) or you're kids need to dress-up for a party, a school play or just general dress-up at home, then you've come to the right place for ideas. Further down this page I'll bring you some pirate-themed party ideas, but I'll start with the costumes.

If you're looking for a big range of pirate costumes at the best prices then you can't go far wrong with Amazon. All of the leading fancy dress suppliers use the site, and because the competition is so rife, you can benefit from low prices.

Are you from the US? I've hand-picked these best-rated costumes;

The most popular and best-rated costume for your lad(s) is the one above. It comes in sizes small to large and includes a striped shirt, black, cropped trousers, a belt with a skull and cross bones and red headband. Priced at well under £10 it's great value for money. Please note that it does not include the eye patch and sword, but accessories are listed under the costume at Amazon, and you can also read about these further down this blog post.
