Dread Pirate Roberts Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
There have been many Dread Pirate Roberts throughout the years, but Westley might probably be the most romantic of them all. He did save his beloved Buttercup even after years of not seeing each other and thinking that she betrayed him.
When he came back for Buttercup, Westley hid his identity by wearing his Dread Pirate Roberts get-up. This consisted of a black Renaissance tunic, black pants, black boots, black head cover, black eye mask, and a sharp sword. Here’s everything you need to look like the Dread Pirate Roberts.
