Pirates have always been a popular character for children to dress up as. With events like ComicCon and other conventions drawing in younger attendees, the pirate costume is a go-to for these events. Also, the pirate is a favourite for children at Halloween. Whether it be at a party or out ‘trick or treating’ you’re bound to find a young swashbuckler or two looking for treasure – or sweet treats! It’s no wonder a pirate is such a popular choice for young children.

For younger children, we also see tv shows such as ‘Jake and the Neverland Pirates’ which has a mix of male and female pirate characters. Here are our best pirate costumes for kids.
