Jack Sparrow is the swashbuckling pirate character from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. You can make a costume just like Jack's by first starting with the appropriate pirate trousers. A dye technique to an old pair of jeans will give you the thick, sturdy trousers Jack wears, then you just need a few other items to finish off the bottom part of your costume. Plus, making the costume pieces yourself will cost less than purchasing the items new from a costume shop.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Find an old pair of jeans in your closet that you don't mind using for the costume.

  2. 2

    Mix a brown fabric dye with a few tablespoons of water. You can purchase fabric dye at most craft stores, and the instructions on the box will indicate exactly how much water to mix the powder dye with.

  3. 3

    Pour the dye mix into a bucket filled with two gallons of hot water. Submerge the jeans in the dye bath and let soak for one hour.

  4. 4

    Remove the jeans from the dye bath and run through the washing machine. Dry the jeans in the dryer after the wash.

  5. 5

    Wear the jeans and tie a red sash around your waist like a belt. Wear black boots that come up almost to your knee, tucking the jeans into the boots.
