In 2005 we decided that our captain was looking a bit un-captain like, a bit lacking in that classic pirate look. As was our first mate. So we set about to surprise them and surprise them we did. We created two full pirate costumes for the unsuspecting pair, wrapped them up in muslin and ribbon wrappings and presented the gifts. Their shock was gratifying, but seeing our captain, Winston Waters, still looking the well dressed pirate is more than thanks enough. This was our first costume collaboration!
