Pirates of Penzance

No I am not auditioning for the local Amateur Dramatics society, (although I can see that making a nice retirement hobby) we are off to Penzance in a few weeks for our friend's 30th. It's a pirate themed affair and every party costume store I have been into or online sells only sexy pirate wench outfits!

My body is so past the stage of sexy wench more like haggered mother of two!

I tried to think of an alternative costume idea (we once had a party for my husband's birthday and someone came as a flag and another as a parrot!) and found these lovely skull print dresses!

I am thinking a skull dress, pirate hat and a swashbuckling plastic sword from the boy's dressing up box!

Which one would you go for or am I playing it too safe?!
