This seems to be my signature costume. Even though I've forever branded myself with the actual Sparrow ink, after about 6 years of wear, I've actually grown tired of wearing this. It is a fun costume to wear, and it's always the hit of any party, but I cannot bring myself to confined to just one character. Therefore this does not see as much action as it once did.
I personally hand inspected a full Curse of the Black Pearl movie worn costume, and with measurements, pattern copies and color matches, I was able to assemble all of the soft pieces exactly. The majority of the rings, buckles and buttons were all cast from screen worn items (in some cases, from the exact same molds used for production). My own personal hat was made by the same company that supplied the original movie. After a few revisions over the years, there is no possible way for me to take this costume to the next step, as it's already fallen off the pier in accuracy.
