Melissa & Doug Pirate Costume Role Play Set
When looking for good quality kids dress up clothes, you simply can’t go wrong with ANYTHING from Melissa & Doug. They are simply put, AWESOME. (See these reviews for their fire chief and doctor role play sets.) This kids pirate role play set is no exception! Quality fabric, excellent details, fun props, machine washable!!, and easy for kids to get off and on… and a GREAT price. Check this one out first, I’d say – ESPECIALLY if you’re looking for pirate costumes for kids that turn into dress up clothes that get worn a LOT!

Rubies Halloween Concepts Children’s Costumes Pirate King
This is a great Halloween costume – high reviews, kids look great in the customer submitted photos (see amazon link below), and fantastic cheap price. HOWEVER… be warned that this likely won’t last a long time in your dress up box. It’s your typical Halloween costume synthetic material. Perfect for one night or two of fun! (But… compared to the Melissa & Doug one above, there’s not much to it.)
Comes with the sash, head band, pants, and shirt. Boots not included. Available in Child Sizes S, M, L.
4.5/5 stars by almost 190 reviewers
InCharacter Baby Boy’s Pirate Boy Costume
Want something more colorful than the red/white/black normal pirate costume? This splash of royal blue and the rich brown pants give this costume something special. Check out the customer submitted photos (Amazon link below)… it’s SO cute!! Perfect for Halloween or a Pirate Party!
Comes with everything you see on the picture except the sword. Reviews say definitely go a size up from your normal one. Available in 2T, 3T, and 4T.

California Costumes Little Boys’ Ahoy Matey Pirate Costume
This is also one of the most frequently purchased pirate costumes for kids online… and it’s very well received! They’ll definitely look like smooth and dashing pirates in this one!
There are 3 parts to the costume – the red and gold details all either attached or printed right one. The sword is unfortunately not included. Reviewers say it runs small, so order a size up!

Rubie’s Let’s Pretend Princess Of The Seas Costume
Love this one! There are some seriously great details with this outfit that make it a fabulous girls pirate costume! Labeled as a “Pretty Princess Pirate”, this costume will appeal to your “girly girl” who needs (or wants) a pirate costume for a dress up party, or likes the idea of going “wild” for Halloween… yet still loves glitter, gold trim, and fun bows. Lots of great reviews, and some super cute customer pics (click through to Amazon to see)!

Disguise Disney’s The Pirate Fairy “Pirate Tinkerbell” Costume
Here’s a twist on pirate costumes… if your little girl needs a pirate costume for one reason or another, but isn’t really into them, why not pick up this adorable “Pirate Tinkerbell” Pirate Fairy costume?? It’s girly – sparkly and pretty, comes with the detachable wings and a character cameo, and is a ton of fun!
4.3 / 5 stars rating by nearly 50 reviewers
Fun World – High Seas Buccaneer Girl Toddler Costume
This Buccaneer costume for girls is also a great buy! It includes the dress, belt, hat with bandana and boot top covers – all she needs to look the part of a (very cute) little pirate girl! Although brown items look like leather in the pictures, reviewers advise that they are more of a felt-like material – just a head’s up. Overall, very, very well received though!
