Become Captain Avery for Halloween for Less Than $10

Ahoy, mateys! Want to sail the seas as Captain Avery from Pirate101 this Halloween? Turns out, his garb is easier to create than you think – and you can do so for less than $10 by using stuff you have around the house, borrowing accessories from a friend, or making a visit to your local thrift shop.

First things first: You’ve gotta have a cockatoo of your own. Head into your sister’s room to see if she has a stuffed bird you can borrow. If you can’t find one, have your parents take you to a local thrift store. You can find all kinds of loot at these stores for only a couple of gold pieces.

For the captain’s coat, visit your dad’s closet for a long, over-sized jacket or shirt that he’s willing to get rid of. Have your parents pick up up gold trim at a hobby or fabric store and ask them to stitch or hot glue the trim along the edges of the coat.

To cover your peg leg and get Captain Avery’s unique sailing pants, you can wear a pair of pant that are too short or cut the bottoms off some old ones you don’t wear.


To make your captain’s hat, take an old hat and have your parents help you fit some pieces of felt around it to make that unique shape. If you live near a Halloween store, take a look at its selection of Pirate hats that have the same look and feel as Captain Avery’s for a discounted price.

Whether you’re swabbing the deck or counting your booty, the captain’s accessories are the most important part of the outfit. Find a large belt and cut a square out of cardboard, color it gold, and weave the belt through it. Take brown work or winter gloves and tuck them under your sleeves for Captain Avery’s signature look. You should be able to find an inexpensive, plastic sword at a local discount store. To make your own cutlass at home, have your parents help you cut the shape of a sword out of cardboard and cover it with aluminum foil.

Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot to be just like one of the most successful Pirate who ever lived. The important part of Halloween is having fun, celebrating, and sharing with your crew. Enjoy your Halloween as Captain Avery and have a safe, fun night.

    Clever, but I’ll be doing a clockwork. Not necessarily one from Pirate101, but a clockwork with a creepy mask nonetheless.

    i’d think of like a dragon with 45-inch teeth if i can and give it 4 pairs of wings, then just give it details

  10. Vengeance Anders / Oct 14 2014 5:59 pm

    I’m going as a plague doctor. You have to love the beak docs, eh? It’s the mask. And the profession.

    plus I’m probably going to be Elsa from Frozen for Halloween or my tinker bell costume from last year. I didn’t do trick or treating last year because I had a really really bad ear infection and you don’t want one
