The Origins of Jack Sparrow

Jack Sparrow was born to Edward Teague, who named his son after his brother, Jack. Born on a pirate ship in the middle of a typhoon, Jack was already brought into the world with interesting circumstances and his life would prove he would never have a dull moment in it as he grew older.

Jack Sparrow’s Adventures

Jack sought to become a captain of his own ship, much like his father, and even served as a cabin boy on his ship for a little while, where he visited plenty of countries along the way. However, Jack grew fed up with the circumstances, specifically the mistreatment he suffered from his grandmother, and snuck into the study to consult the Pirata Codex, which justified his idea to run away. He snuck aboard a merchant ship and met Arbella, who joins him in the search for the Sword of Cortes.

The Costume: Get Jack Sparrow’s Look

So let’s copy Captain Jack Sparrow’s look! As always, we’re starting off with the basics. A pair of brown cut pants that are tucked under a white collared shirt, not buttoned. The layers that Jack wears are a lot, so hopefully, it isn’t too hot outside.

Next, you want a navy blue vest with silver buttons. Jack wears an excessive amount of belts, one brown and one red belt with gold patterned buckles that should rest along your waist, along with a tied white, long-sleeved, lined shirt. Next is the brown overcoat, adorned with gold buttons along the side and the cuffs, followed by one final brown belt resting across your shoulder, across your body. Go ahead and rejoice after putting on all of those belts and layers but we still aren’t finished.

The Accessories: Details That Matter

You’ll need some leather brown boots with gold buckles and three rings: one gold with a skull, another gold with a green gem, and one silver with a green gem in its middle. If you aren’t already equipped with facial hair, go ahead and get yourself a fake brown mustache and beard but don’t forget to make two braids out of your beard! You should be able to find a nice dark brown wig representing his dreads along with the patterned red bandana he wears around his head.

A fake brown gun and sword to rest at either side of your hips should keep you plenty defended and a brown pirate hat to rest on top of your head. Finally, add a little more style with an assortment of brown and red bracelets on your wrist as well as the infamous compass Captain Jack Sparrow uses to find his way. This pirate look was brought to life by the costume designers Penny Rose, John Norster, and Alexa M. Stone.
