It's that time of year for my six themed costumes quickie build...

2010: Lord of the Rings
This year's theme was "P", so we chose Pirates of the Caribbean. Luckily, I already had a mostly complete Jack Sparrow costume:
Since that photo, I darkened the boots with more Pecards lotion, darkened the pants (by rubbing them against my overly dyed scabbard) replaced the Anna Marie buckle with a DMC/AWE version, got an accurate linen shirt, made a new baldric and, of course, got a new sword.
