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).
