Jack Sparrow Costume
Jack Sparrow must be the most famous pirate today even though the name is a fictional one. He is the star of the Pirates of the Caribbean films starring Johnny Depp and also of the children’s book series Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow which were written to go with the films.
If you want to be a pirate at Halloween or at a fancy dress event, a Jack Sparrow costume must be the first choice. It’s a very attractive costume. There are three examples of the costume below. Clicking on any will take you to more choices to buy.
The Prestige costume is more expensive but definitely the more impressive costume comprising many parts:
- brown jacket
- white pirate shirt
- blue vest
- across the chest belt with a buckle
- brown pants
- boot covers
- bandana with beaded braids attached to it.
This is the officially licensed Pirates of the Caribbean 3 costume. If your friends can go with you as Davy Jones and Elizabeth Swann, you’ll definitely make a big entrance.

In the first film Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) Jack is out to get his ship the Black Pearl back from his mutionous first mate Hector Barbossa. Elizabeth Swann, the daughter of the Governor of Port Royal is captured and held hostage by Captain Barbossa and his crew. The film is about Will Turner (friend and admirer of Elizabeth) and Jack Sparrow’s attempt to rescue Elizabeth. The film was highly successful as were the two sequels.
A real life pirate who Jack Sparrow could have been based upon was Bartholomew Roberts. Bartholomew was known as Black Bart. He took 470 vessels prisoner. His ferocity was so well known that many ships surrendered without a fight.
He served as a sailor before his own ship was captured and then took to piracy. After only six week on a pirate ship, he was elected captain after the death of the previous captain. He dressed like a Georgian dandy and his style was like that of Jack Sparrow in the films. Unlike Jack, Bartholomew was a teetotaler and drank tea.
Jack Sparrow could well be modelled after Black Bart but in any case a Jack Sparrow costume makes a fantastic outfit!
