Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, a Pirate's Life for Me

Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, a Pirates life for me!!
When I was younger and wasn't dreaming of being a princess, I wanted to be a Pirate. This was made worse, in later years, by the Pirates of the Caribbean - let's face it who could resist Johnny Depp dressed like that, I'd have done whatever he told me -  and then when I got my first out of school job as a living historian, I was considering it could become a reality as I wanted to specialise in historical costume! That all changed when I met HellBone and had to find work in a country I didn't speak the language of, BUT the idea of being a pirate still lingers in my brain, and luckily for me in SL I can be just that... 
There are some amazing pirate costumes available in SL but when I saw this one I wanted it... Unfortunately it was a gacha and so I let it be at the time of release, I wasn't sure I wanted to play to win a set, then I found a full set in this pretty sky blue colour and knew that was the perfect colour for Pirate Captain Rudhmellowen Laguna... The complete outfit is an Alchemy original, and it comes in various colours with other things added to the rare versions - this is not one of the rares by the way - but even the non-rare colour sets have hats and eye patches to match the amazing coats.
Then to complete the look I remembered that buried deep in my hoard was a nod to the Pirates of the Caribbean - and therefore to that sexy Captain Sparrow - in the form of the BAMSE Cursed Necklace.
I was ready for adventure... Now any self-respecting wannabe pirate captain knows that there is only one place for Pirates and that would be Tortuga... SL has it's own version of this place, a land called BLACKSPOT Shipyard.. Here you can commandeer a ship, you can drown your sorrows and perhaps even bury your treasure! It's well worth checking out, and who knows you could even become part of my crew hehe...
