This Instructable will detail the creation of a modern day pirate costume. We've all heard about torrents and pirates stealing data, but what do these guys actually look like? Here's my spin on it.

What you'll need:
For your head:
  • A bandanna
  • A flash drive
  • A clip-on earring
  • A Bluetooth headset/computer headset
  • An eye-patch
  • Headphones (Mp3 player optional)

For your body:
  • A black t-shirt
  • Spray paint
  • Paint pens/more paint (you'll see what I mean)
  • A computer mouse
  • Velcro
  • Sewing skillz! (and a needle and thread)
  • An old CD/DVD (or new, whatever floats your boat)
  • An Ethernet cable
  • Buttons, the ones with the safety pins on the back

Step 1: Buttons

I decided I would wear some buttons to further the idea of the pirating. I got pictures of the uTorrent logo, the Pirate Bay, and Lifehacker and printed them out. Then, I simply cut and glued them onto existing buttons (because I don't exactly have a button maker...).
Hahaha, Utorrent.
I like your bandana. I guess you like pirates.
G'NERD, to the core
That is so awesome. Two thumbs way up!
Thanks man! Can you vote for me in the book contest since you liked it so much?

Thank you!
YAR! A great idea! My son, a modern pirate would love this! Sorry I didn't comment earlier. Was too busy playing NES games on my PSP.
Haha thanks man. Care to give me a plus? ;)
Yar, course matey. I also liked the button idea, as I haven't plundered any loot latetely, and can't afford an Isohunt T-Shirt.
Nice man, Nice!
Thanks Muff.
