Gypsy, or a Dainty Pirate by racehorse87 Gypsy, or a Dainty Pirate by racehorse87
Dressing up for a costume party. I aimed for pirate, and I think that I landed in gypsy. Either way, I'm happy.

The laced bodice/corset deal was made by me. It's reversible. =D

The blouse was originially olive green, but I bleached it.

The skirt is from Reitman's.

I wore this outfit also to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire later on in the summer.

I like this a lot! I'm aiming for this exact sort of in-between look when I go to the Renaissance Fair. It's a wonderful shot as well as wonderful inspiration.

True. It was my first Renaissance festival that year. I came up with a more piratical look for the next year: racehorse87.deviantart.com/art…

Awsome costume =D. I have a quiston, for the renaissance faire I'm going as a pirate and I was wondering how you got the headscarff thing [whatever you call it XD] like that?

I hope that you were able to sort the headscarf out yourself, as this is clearly too late to be helpful, but in case anyone else is wondering ... the scarf is a long rectangle and I basically made a knot in the headscarf and used a lot of bobby pins to get it to stay that way. This is easier with a square scarf, which I tried out the year after: racehorse87.deviantart.com/art…
