    i am planing on making my first replica costume that of Edward Teach as portrayed in black sails.

    i have some experience in garment making and want to do most of it myself.

    i intend to make first the clothing, then the sword, then, time permitting the bandoleers and pistols

    i have searched google and pinterest for reference images. and am going through the episodes looking for good images but finding things like closeups of the detail on his jacket cuffs and around the buttons.

    can anybody recommend places such images might be found, or a good guide on doing this kind of research.

    You might want to check out The Captains Quarters as he has made an exact replica of his hat since he was able to acquire the original hat from the Black Sails auction. He also made my Anne Bonny hat replica to go with my screen worn costume.

    These photos are from the auctions last year;

    I cant help you with this costume in particular but I have three of the screen worn costumes from the show that I would be happy to take photos of should you or anyone need more reference photos; Anne Bonny Season 1, Jack Rackham, Mark Read
