These are some sketches I actually did a couple of weeks ago after I saw the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie (part 17?). I guess I would put the movie in the category of "have low expectations, and you won't be disappointed" :) It was easier to follow at least than the other recent ones. I did have fun though.
Anyway, I've actually been a fan of pirates (not real ones, mind you) since I was little. See photo:
That's me on the left :) How awesome is that?! The tattoos and facial hair is courtesy of my Mom and a Sharpie. Not sure how old I am in the picture... 6 maybe? That would make it around 1981. My sister to my left chose a more demure Arabian princess costume of some sort. The pirate thing was definitely my most favorite Halloween costume as a child! You can tell I'm really feelin' it.
And here is a photo of my super cute niece from a few years ago doing the pirate thing (a convenient excuse to post of picture of Katey):
She is way cute, but I don't think she's as into it as her Aunt Cara was in similar circumstances:)
How do you guys feel about pirates? Still cool? Or "over it"?
'Til next time.
