Is Captain Jack Sparrow the most iconic pirate costume of all time?

When it comes to halloween costumes that become classics, there a few iconic characters that come to mind like Darth Vader as well as the ever-popular Superheroes from Batman to Superman. But at top of all those great characters, the Captain Jack Sparrow Costume inspired by Pirates of the Carribean is in a league of its own.  It’s been over 10 years since the first instalment of Pirates of the Carribean in which Johnny Depp played that irreverent, eye-shadowed and slurring pirate that became a smash success at the box office.  Of course with Disney, every box office success means that there will be a sequel, or four…

So with Johnny Depp agreeing to star in Pirates of the Carribean 5 with a release date in 2015, it seems that the Jack Sparrow costume will continue on the silver screen for a while longer.  But what makes the character so amazing is that Johnny Depp actually admits to wearing this costume from time to time. So if you can imagine that you are one of Hollywood’s A-list actors and you could chose any of the costumes you wanted, you decide to wear the same costume that you have worn already in four different films. Of course,  Johnny Depp is a pretty shrewd guy and despite have been in many other great costumes (e.g. Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands, Dark Shadows, Tonto, etc.) he knows that above all others, people identify him in the Jack Sparrow costume.

In a interview following the recently released The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp talked about how he would travel around with his Jack Sparrow costume. He didn’t say whether he also travels with the makeup kit, but I guess being Johnny Depp that he probably has access to some makeup artist wherever he goes. You can check out this feature article from E!.

But what seals the story about Jack Sparrow as an iconic figure is Johnny Depp’s interview below.

If you don’t have the patience to watch the full interview, go to 8:11 to hear John Depp when asked who of all the characters would have influenced him the most.  You won’t be disappointed to hear that its that rascal of a character, Jack Sparrow.
