Our smashing chums at Camden’s Escapade are offering 10% off their range of seafaring attire for all you KOKO revellers for this month’s Sailors vs. Pirates party.
To get suitably dressed for the occasion, head on over to their site, select your items of choice then when you checkout use the code YOHOHO and shiver me timbers, 10% off is yours!
They’ve got a vast range of items suitable for the soiree – from full costumes to cutlasses, bad teeth to boots, so let’s get you started with some ideas as to what to wear:
Sailor’s are military men therefore have to be fit and strong BURSTING with testosterone and muscles. If you lean to more of a slender build and never win at arm wrestles, then we have the solution: a shirt with pretend pumped up arms!
See them swoon as you strut about with your great big foamy arms bulging in all the right places. Who cares that it doesn’t match your skin colour! They’ll be so bowled over by your manliness, they’ll be blind with lust.
Lady Pirates aren’t that common. They don’t look like Keira Knightly either. As if Pirates have all their own teeth for a start. Yes just as the “real woman” doesn’t have Keira’s figure, “real lady pirates” are a burly lot who never say no to a kebab and can drain a crate of blue WKD in seconds. Suffice to say this get up is size appropriate for such tasks.
Celebrate your curves! as the patronising women’s mags say before telling you to lose weight on the next page. If anyone asks who ate all the cutlasses, just give them a real reason to wear that eye patch.
If you don’t fancy sporting a peg leg or a bell bottom for the night, then why not come as Neptune, the mystical sea god? It’s the other obvious choice of dress up isn’t it?
Command order and respect as you part the seas of the KOKO crowd with your authoritative ways and great big stick. We can’t guarantee they’ll listen but a guy in a big blue skirt will most likely grab their attention.
Do you have a tiny head? Love a hat but forever drowned in its stiff fabric structure? Your prayers have been answered – it’s a tiny sailor’s hat!
Finally the solution for those with shrunken bonce syndrome, the answer to your fancy dress woe. Or indeed general hat woe if you’re happy to wear a sailor hat come what may. We just want to make your life better. Nothing more.
If you take care in your appearance and fond of grooming then this is your accessory of choice for the night – a luscious pirate beard and wig.
Not in the obvious black shade, this dove grey, plaited set will make you stand out from all the other riff raff pirates as one who appreciates the more refined pillaging and looting in life. It’s luxe pirating if you will, exclusively for the more sophisticated amongst us.
