I'm looking for info on pirate garb, but also on other things piratey :-) My honey wants clothes like Cap'n Jack Sparrow (which I doubt I can make!) and we're both interested in learning more about real and faire pirates. And, of course, I've always wanted to write a story involving pirates, but since I know nothing about ships, etc....it's been on hold. So, if anyone can point me toward websites selling pirate garb, pictures of different garb, histories, info, ANYTHING...I'd be eternally grateful! For us it's more a learning experience than a "show me something to copy," since a) we'd never do that, b) where's the fun in that? and c) we can't afford much now anyway! Ahh...but my thanks go out to any who can help fuel my dreams...

One of the biggest sites would be No Quarter Given, which has a ton of information on it. I'll try to come up with a few more. ;)

As you can tell I have just a FEW websites. :lol:
I think these will get you started. :wink:

This site was sent through the PCRF mail list to help those of us who are on the newly commissioned HMS Dragon. :-)
