Go for Ritsuka 'cause he's cuter and you get to wear ears! :o You could do Rukia, but she's kinda overdone and I think you'd be cuter as Ritsuka. But if you do Yachiru, please promise you'll make that little Kenpachi snowman plushie thing. Please. Haha! If you like Bleach, you could also do Hanataro...

Okay, Norrington might be a little out of place, :roll: but I'm sure anime people would recognize...I think the fan bases overlap. I mean if people dress up in Harry Potter crap, I'm sure some Pirates would be welcome. Otherwise just do Raphael cause he's cool too.

Yeah, James Norrington! He's my favorite character! :D Is that weird?

I think it would be cool to wear the white wig that he has in the first movie. But in the second one, there's definitely some facial hair going on.

If you can do basic sewing, here's a good way to make ninja sandals...

And the cloak... it's quite a pain, so good luck. :)
I think felt would look fine and would probably be easier to cut and work with than other fabric.

Um, I'm guessing the point is to have them look jagged, right? Otherwise you would hem them. Hmm...why not try painting them with glue? It might be cleaner-looking and stronger.

That is the cutest icon. Ever. Oh Lon Lon Ranch! ^^
