I started on a budget also. My costume needs improving also but it works. I have a mix of items from Ebay and I started with a Costumebase belts and baldric. the Costumbase Baldric ripped and I also upgraded one of my belts to a real leather belt. My wig and hair accesories came from Tyrannical Piratical Treasures. I would like to upgrade my boots and pants if I can get some extra money.

my baldric is heavily modded fun foam, funny because I have no sword.....I may buy a pistol (or 2) the next time I'm near seaside Oregon.

I've seen a brace of pistols, Queen Annes to be exact in a pawn shop in my town so am saving to buy them. Pretty beat up and to my knowledge not the real deal but they are cool enough

I've just finnished making my baldric the on saturday and the materials only cost me about $16 plus the price of the buckle XD

Even better, the leftover materials gave me more than enough to make a tricorn. it looks good and because it's dark it looks more like the OST version. Smile

Agreed! Very nicely done!

Oh, and also, if people are looking for a less expensive baldric alternative (like the ones Mojo posted above, but even smaller price tag), consider one of mine!

http://www.etsy.com/listing/70141147/custom-sword-hangerbaldric-for-pirate

If you provide the buckle, I can make a DMC through OST version for around $85. Mind you, it won't have French edging, nor will it have embossed leather. But for a "close enough" budget alternative, I think it's pretty good (in my completely unbiased opinion ;P). Otherwise, I can make a CotBP version for $75 (sans buckle), like the one pictured.

Wow, mate, for a budget costume.... that looks AMAZING! It's easy to look SA when you have the funds to fork over for the top-of-the-line stuff. I'm far more impressed with people who use their own creativity to pull a great costume together on a shoestring budget.

I second those wise words! When a venture is not easy, and it borders on the obsessive to almost destruction, then the victory itself once caught tastes that much sweeter Wink

I was browsing facebook this morning to find a comment from a friend of a friend who has been acting on the set of pirates of the caribbean 4, he's one of the guards in the scene when Jack is in London, he said:

"Having actually seen the real Cpt. Jack (as well as countless stuntmen, body doubles and even a hand double) I can honestly say that the impression was excellent! The body language and facial expressions were very realistic! Well done Collin, you've obviously put a lot of time and effort into perfecting the Cpt. jack routine!"

I am always amazed at how the Jack costume transforms everyone's look. You seem to have a similar face shape to pull off a pretty good Jack as well. I'm anxious to see you when you get your beard braids attached. Also just need a little more coloring on your skin, weather it be getting a tan or using more makeup. Excellent.
