    Bit of a funny question but does anyone know where I can find a really nice pirate costume thats a size 16/18? I'm taking my little girl to a princess and pirate party at disney world in 3 weeks and she's getting done up as a princess (she already is one so she may as well look the part!:D) and I've finally decided I want to go as a female pirate. Only problem is all the ones I can find look really cheap or cost an arm and a leg! Only other thing I can think of is to make one up myself off e-bay (like the idea of a corset to hold in those soft bits around the middle!lol).
    Anyone else got any ideas?

    I do like some of the ones from America but I'm a bit concerned about delivery times as I leave for my holiday on 2nd May.

    You could do a female pirate - with either gypsy type tiered skirt or trousers ... combats would look good, or thick tights and boots. Stripped thin jumper, wide belt, eye patch, curly black hair, dangly ear-rings .... ooooooooooooooo getting carried away here now!!!!

    Gotta remember that it's in Florida which is quite hot this time of year so I think thick tights and any kind of jumpers are a no no, but I like the gypsy skirt idea!
