Pirate costume

After cubs last night and after collecting rest of gear needed for Daire's camping trip we started on pirate costume.

Bandana for head (stripey silk hanky)
Two of my shirts :- white one underneath with cloth belt around waist and sleeves rolled up and blue shirt over that looks like a coat.
Sports socks with trousers tucked in and pushed up to knee.
Sword with hand guard: bamboo stick sprayed with silver paint and cardboard/duct-tape guard.

Daire has good sword technique gleaned from the Princess Bride (and not Pirates of the Caribbean he says).
