Has anyone done it? I want to start working on it as soon as possible. I'm a mess with a needle and a thread so if someone could point me in the direction of where I could buy the costume or atleast some good sources that would be great.
 
Afraid I can't help much, but it's refreshing to see someone dress as a POTC character other than Jack. Nothing against all the "Jacks" on here, just like to see something different sometimes. I did skeletal Barbossa years ago (far from screen accurate) from found and modified stuff. Good luck and post progress pics
 
Ragetti's costume is rather plain.

Here's some good ref pics.

The breeches, vest and shirt can be easily had from any historical re-enactors supplier like Jas. Towsend & Sons, or any providers of pirate and/or renfaire garb, lots of stuff on the bay.

Depending on how accurate you want it to be and how much you want to spend, suitable items could probably be found by thrift store shopping, also. That would include some big old buckles--if nothing in the belt section, check large women's purses for a good buckle.

His most difficult item would be his coat, and you could mod an old suit coat, if you bought an old suit so you'd have the material from the pants to make those turned back lapels.

Thanks guys for the tips and wise words. What turned me on to the Ragetti costume is its simplicity (to me) and I have never costumed as a pirate and look nothing like Jack Sparrow. :lol
