Take the old T-shirts of red and black (brown) colors. From the first cut out a large triangular piece for the bandana. The second is cut into thin strips. Sew them to the bandana and weave three of them to make pigtails. Decorate the "hairstyle" with beads.
To make this important item of the pirate wardrobe, Dad or Mama's white shirt is suitable, if she has long sleeves. To give it the necessary look, you can either sew a lace or a shuttlecover to its cuff, or fix it above the usual position. It is also worth decorating the shirt collar. For this, the same lace is good.
You can sew it from an old jacket, cutting off sleeves and sewing large shiny metal buttons, as well as pockets.
You can sew it yourself or give an appropriate look to an old hat. For this, 3 fragments are cut to the size of the boy's head . Then they are glued on the hat. If the headdress has wide margins, then they can be fastened to the crown so that a triangle turns out. On the hat you can glue the image of "Jolly Roger", cut from paper.
Here you can completely manage any pants of dark color, preferably without the "shooter".
Two trapezios are cut from the piece of leatherette and each part is stitched along the side. Fix the resulting sockets on the boot top. Decorate shoes with large shiny buckles.
In the movie, Jack Sparrow had a long white sash in a thin red strip. It can be made from a piece of fabric or a suitable long scarf.

For example, a very natural "hairstyle" is obtained if you use black kapron tights (4 pairs). They cut into pieces from side to side and stretched so that twisted laces-rings are made. Then they cut and get flagella. When the "strands" are ready, the base is made. To do this, use a wide rubber band in black and sew the crossbeams from one ear to the other, plus one transverse - from the forehead to the nape. Then fixed on the basis of a circle of flagella, with the top in several places pinned bandana.
Regardless of the costume, you will need to use a contour pencil to paint your eyes, beard and mustache on your Jack Sparrow. If there is a desire, use the purchased "vegetation" for the face. You can also tie your head with a black ribbon with sewn pigtails, such as on a wig, to make a beard, like a pirate.
Although the makeup will be enough, perhaps your son will want to wear a mask. To supplement her New Year costume Jack Sparrow, you need a printer. On it, print out the image of the pirate's face, cut out and paste on cardboard. In the upper part, the stapler is fastened with the same piece of cloth that went to the bandana. Cut holes for the eyes. Fix a mask on the mask, which will be hidden under the wig.
If you carefully watched the film, then remember that something was shining on the belt of the pirate. This detail of the suit was a compass. It can be made from any box, pasted it with foil.
