Captain Hook was actually one of my favorite costumes to make. This was the year of Savers. I tried to use a lot of things from there, to save money and time. This DIY Captain Hook Costume worked out well:
Coat: Is actually a red robe. I edged the front lapel with gold edging (sewing it on with transparent thread). On the sleeves, I put thick lace, which I gathered and then sewed in. The red robe was a lifesaver!
Shirt: I showed a strip of thick lace down the front of a women’s turtle-neck ike a “frilly shirt”
Captain Hook also needs striped socks (I found these at Costco, they were actually mine).
The pants are women’s capri pants (you can only imagine how hard Iaughed when Drew was trying those on)
Shoes are just black and the wig is a long curly wig.
We’ve been lucky enough to borrow cool hats at times from friends. They really help make the outfit. I have seen tutorials where they make the hat out of a thick black foam (just cut an oval out the size of their head) and then glue on a few fancy feathers (you could even edge it with a boa). It’s mostly about the feathers.
This captain Hook costume is one of my favorites, and buying at Savers made it really easy! Be sure to check out my other Peter Pan (and other) costumes in my Halloween Costumes Category!
