As a kid, pirates like Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Hook are pirate costumes that would be amazing to wear, but as long as it is stylish, any swashbuckling costume with a sword will do. The best part is that this costume is great for both boys and girls.
The category of ninjas is vast, especially if you consider that you can include zombie ninjas into this genre of costume, but it is likely that your child will find being a talented ninja the perfect costume.
