The Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise returned with a stunning fifth movie in which Captain Jack Sparrow goes out to look for Poseidon’s Trident. Jack is seeking to free the Black Pearl from its tiny glass bottle prison. In addition, the terrifying Captain Salazar and his ghost crew, who escaped from the Devil’s Triangle, seek revenge upon Jack Sparrow.
The movie has been praised for being “the most beautiful Pirates movie by a landslide” (cnet.com). Furthermore, a lot of talented designers worked on the movie: the Pirates of the Caribbean Costumes in Dead Man Tells No Tales are simply incredible, among other things.
Whether you’re looking to recreate a costume from the movies or to create your own, we’ve put together some pictures you can use as inspiration for your Pirate of the Caribbean costume!

We love a genderbent costume. This stunning cosplay of Jack Sparrow is an example of a great women’s pirate costume! Ladies, why not become a pirate captain yourself!

There’s no denying it, costumes are better with friends. Why not opt for a group pirate costume, like these cosplayers dressed as Elizabeth Swan, Jack Sparrow, and Will Turner? You’re sure to be a hit at any con or Halloween party. Alternatively, dressing up as Will and Elizabeth makes for a great couple’s costume.

The Pirates of the Caribbean movies have become a staple in our pop culture, and yet, its success was not nearly as certain as people might think.
