Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
How to Make Davy Jones’ Costume from Pirates of the Caribbean
Centuries in the sea did Davy Jones a number on his looks. His pirate shirt, coat, gothic pants, thick belt, hat, and boots all have an old-world twist as seen its worn state and under-see growth. Replicate these sea elements with glue-on shells and a little powder to dust the ensemble. For Davy’s monstrous features, opt for an alternative octopus-inspired mask and lobster claws.
Steal the costume party scene with this Davy Jones look! Below is a quick way to cop his outfit:
|1||Octopus Mask||To keep things light and less sweaty, wear an octopus-inspired beanie-slash-balaclava mask.|
|2||Tricorn Hat||Top the mask with a tricorn hat.|
|3||Vintage shirt||Keep the costume period-dated with a vintage shirt.|
|4||Black tailcoat||Dress the part of the Flying Dutchman captain with a tailored coat.|
|5||Thick Belt||Style the shirt with a thick black belt with large buckles.|
|6||Gothic Pants||Cop medieval-inspired trousers to match your top and coat.|
|7||Dark Spats||Wear your polished loafers with boot-length spats to complete this bad-ass costume.|
|8||Lobster Claws||Then wear a lobster claw on one hand.|
|9||Sea Shell appliques||Decorate the look with sea shells in place of barnacles for a fun underwater touch.|
About Davy Jones
Davy Jones is a character at the film franchise “Pirates of the Caribbean”. As the immortal captain of the Flying Dutchman, he was originally tasked by sea goddess Calypso to ferry dead souls to the next world on his ship. He fell in love with Calypso which led him to eventual heartbreak and betrayal. This made him take his heart out and store it in the infamous Dead Man’s Chest.
Davy Jones was also responsible for turning the Pirate Brethren agaist Calypso and in turn wreaking havoc to the oceans. As he grew angry and violent, his appearance also changed resulting to a mix of sea creatures combining on his person.
