Steampunk Pirate Costume Ideas For Halloween

Steampunk is a way to combine the past with a future that would’ve been if steam technology was the primary source of power. Though it started as science fiction and fantasy, today steampunk has spread into clothing, art, home decor, and pretty much everything that one can imagine. Airships are a major fascination for most steampunk enthusiasts. And when there are people sailing through the skies, there are always pirates to do their plundering and pillaging on those airships. A steampunk pirate in that way is similar to traditional ones that used to sail the seas.

Many steampunk pirate personas are inspired by pirates such as Blackbeard, Henry Morgan, and Bartholomew Roberts. However, these personas usually have a modern twist to them inspired by the retrofuturistic ideas of steampunk. Here are some ideas that you can use to complete your steampunk pirate persona for this Halloween. 

Steampunk Pirate Headgear

Headgear is an important part of any steampunk pirate persona. A captain’s hat would be the most simple headgear to go for. Apart from that as steampunk pirates sail through the skies, it is also important to have basic protection for your eyes, nose, and mouth. A pair of goggles and a mask can be useful for that purpose. You can also wear an eyepatch as an indication that your pirate persona has been through many hard battles and emerged victorious.

Here are some of our recommendations.
