This came with one comment: "I had heard about this costume and that party a lot, but never expected to ever see a picture! Facebook is cool, if only for the old people!"
I don't know who posted it on Facebook, though. Somewhere I have some photos from that pirate party too, and from the preparations for it. I already had the papier mache parrot. I just wired it up with a harness, and made two [see-through] eye patches.
