Picture of ePirate Costume: A Modern Take On Piracy
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...).

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.

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.
