Dress like Anne Bonny Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Anne Bonny’s typical outfit is very piratical as well as colonial-inspired. She wears a white blouse with pleats around the chest and a dark green lace-up corset that cover her from her waist to her shoulders. On her bottom half she is dressed in a dark green skirt with a slit or part cut from the side, knee high gray socks or stockings, and flat shoes with a buckle.
For accessories she wears layered leather cord necklaces, a pink crown of roses around the back of her head, and a short sword with a scabbard belt around her waist. She also has a red sash tied around her waist which adds a pop of color to the overall look. Here’s what you need to put together your own version of an Anne Bonny costume.
Anne Bonny Costume for Cosplay
|1||Blouse, white with pleats and ruffles around the neck||Anne wears a blouse like the one above, and has it so that the ruffles around the neck are foaming from the top of the corset. This gives a very jaunty and playful look to the outfit.|
|2||Skirt, green layered, with a slit or side cut.||This skirt is a great alternative to pants, it allows the same amount of movement but with an extra flair. You can easily get a skirt like hers but making a cut in it yourself.|
|3||Corset, dark green, covers full torso||Anne’s corset acts almost like armor sometimes, and is a very piratical addition to the outfit. You can hide knives and blades very easily inside a corset such as this one.|
|4||Sash, deep red, tie around waist.||Anne’s sash is a nice pop of color and a great accessory to the overall look.|
|5||Stockings, grey knee-length.||Stockings or socks to go under the skirt and cover part of the legs otherwise revealed by the slit|
|6||Shoes, black with a buckle, colonial style.||Anne’s shoes are very sturdy and no-nonsense. Perfect for a tough fighter like herself.|
|7||Gauntlet sleeves, brown leather lace-up.||The gauntlet’s act as a protection for her arms, and made her outfit more battle appropriate.|
|8||Necklaces, leather cord, layered.||Anne wears several different necklaces; you can start off with a choker, add a medium length one, and finally and longer one.|
|9||Short sword and scabbard with hip belt.||A fierce piratess cannot be without a weapon after all.|
|10||Flower crown, pink roses.||Tie the flower crown backward around your head so the flowers frame the back of your head like Anne’s does.|
|11||red wig||To finish off this look you can add a red wig to replicate Anne’s own red hair|
This costume is a fun option for any Assassin’s Creed fan. It’s an interesting outfit and with a little effort can make a phenomenal cosplay costume.
