I wish I wasn't so busy today, I would get more creative with my interpretation of the #fallforcostume #challenge #day17 theme of #last.....but I don't have the bandwidth, so here you go, the last event I was at. I loooooove how this Mary Read look came together, and as usual @shuleraj captures a moment perfectly. I was about to review the shanties I had to start singing for the visitors a few minutes after this snap. So, here's to another day with @redthreaded's #fallforcostume2019!

I'm going to let this one count for days 14 #stitching and 15 #blue of the #fallforcostume challenge hosted by @redthreaded -
This dress is incredibly important to me. I got engaged in this dress just over two years ago, and it gave me the confidence to believe I could sew my own wedding dress (which I did!)
Believe it or not, this was my first foray into the world of historical costuming. It is also my first hand sewn garment (with the exception of the three seams that put together the mock-up of the bodice which became the lining). The pattern is from #patternsoffashion which took me absolute ages to track down a copy of. The material is not historically accurate AT ALL and I couldn't care less. It signaled the start of so many wonderful things and quite literally changed my life. 
Ok. I'm done being dramatic over a dress now. Carry on.

I highly recommend this book for those pirate historians amongst you.  A great narrative of the true men of the golden age... #pirate #piratehistory #goldenageofpiracy #ditroidgra

A little view of our #space yesterday for the Palmetto Pirate Festival at Berkeley County Museum and Heritage Center. #Day13 of the #fallforcostume #challenge by @redthreaded is #space, and since we don't have anything futuristic in our repertoire, here's my interpretation. We include the colors of a captured prize, a few maps and charts, a whimsical silk scarf or hat here and there, a sail rigged up for shade, and *Voila* - Calico Jack Rackham and Mary Read come to life.
.
.
No whimsy women pirates in corsets here, just a gal in men's clothing, because that's what she'd have worn. The most accurate female sailor/pirate is 100% guaranteed to be the most boring. In other news, I LOVED the freedom of men's clothing! Trousers forever!

Day 9. Swing

Listening to German pirate music does not help my concentration on maths homework, but it did help me get in the mood for inking this sketch. Loosely based on Black Bellamy, the richest pirate on the seven seas.

Now I've finally got all four seasons of Black Sails! Funny thing is that first season is pretty mediocre, and the last three are frikkin' phenominal! Seriously outstanding! Take a gander Game of Thrones, this is how you end a series!!!
IN OTHER NEWS, I've completed my first assignment in Film Studies! The first course have simply been about "learning how to speak film", or how a film is composed. Next course is Film History, which starts next week!

Alright, this warrants another piratey day!
.
This day 1720, The notorious pirate Captain "Calico" Jack Rackum of the William, along with Anne Bonny and Mary Reed, just as notorious female pirates, inspirations for free thinking men and women alike, captured 2 British merchant sloops.
.
We know of the account as one of those poor plundered sailors, one James Dobbin, spun his tale in Philadelphia near two-hundred years ago!

Happy #tealtuesday everyone! It's time for another #studentspotlight! 
This week we are #pressproud to introduce you to Sydney Watson! 
Sydney Watson, a student researcher at the Athenaeum Press, collects archival research to demonstrate that piracy, as an occupation, was linked to the unemployment rates after the War of the Spanish Succession. 
Displayed here is a timeline revealing how piracy was a product of local and global politics and the economy.  The timeline provides viewers with a breakdown of the two similar careers that influenced piracy, privateers and buccaneers.  The timeline also explains the events that took place during the Golden Age of Piracy, 1650-1730, and how the pathways of the four main characters in the exhibited unraveled. “ As an aspiring journalist, I have always been interested in reporting the truth. When I first joined the Athenaeum Press, there were designers, photographers, and researchers, all excited to demonstrate their talents and create an exhibition. I was excited, but worried how my passion for news would be able to assist these dedicated students on research focused in the past. I found my place with the press, when I became an asset in researching archival data through old newspaper artifacts. I soon realized, that covering history is similar to covering the present. Each has a story to tell, and the truth deserves to heard.” Watson’s research is displayed in the Rough Seas and Legacies exhibition at Horry County Museum. It is a part of a large collaboration brought to you by the members of the Athenaeum Press, and students at Coastal Carolina and East Carolina University.

This exhibit was brought to you by the Athenaeum Press at Coastal Carolina.

August of 1710.
The crew of the South Seas Jest has stopped at Burnaby Inn in Tortuga, a small island off the coast of Hispaniola, to drink ale and sing merry melodies. Johnny Dougall, a young Irish gunner is particularly fond of playing the concertina and singing about his native Cork back in ol' Ireland.

Reposted from @ahencyclopedia - "The pirates of the ancient Mediterranean were not, for the most part, the outsiders who knew no country’s allegiance and were the enemies of civilization as they are frequently depicted in novels and other media. They were often employed (or at least encouraged) by one government against the interests of another and were relied upon for slaves by wealthy private citizens and governmental agencies. Governments themselves had no qualms about resorting to piracy during war, and some of the most famous ancient pirates were military or political leaders. Even the famous Cilician pirates could be bought for the right price as is clear from their involvement with Mithridates VI (r. 120-63 BCE) when he employed them against Rome.

In the modern day, pirates are frequently imagined along the lines of Jack Sparrow and the other characters from the popular film franchise Pirates of the Caribbean or the television series Black Sails. These pirates are modeled on the notable figures of the so-called Golden Age of Piracy (1650-1730 CE) and War on Piracy (c. 1716-1726 CE) and, in the case of Black Sails, on the work of the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson (l. 1850-1894 CE) and have little in common with the ancient pirates of the Mediterranean.

The ancient pirates were quite often crews providing a service (notably the capture, transport, and sale of people as slaves) for governments or military contingents acting in the interests of their own government although there were pirates who acted independently purely for their own self-interest and profit.

Piracy is first mentioned in the Egyptian records during the reign of the pharaoh Akhenaten (1353-1336 BCE) and was still being practiced in the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages (c. 476 -1500 CE). The pirates of the Golden Age of the 17th and 18th centuries CE were nothing new. They were following in what was, by then, an ancient tradition."

On September 7, 1695, the treasure laden Ghanjah dhow, the Ganj-i-sawai, (anglicized as the Gunsway), belonging to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, was attacked and captured by a fleet of pirates led by Henry Every. The fleet was led by 5 other pirates. Thomas Tew, aboard the Amity, was known as the Rhode Island Pirate. He had family in Rhode Island and often stopped in Newport. Joseph Faro, aboard the Portsmouth Adventure, was from Newport. Richard Want, captain of the Dolphin, lived in Newport for a time, and was outfitted there and spent his money there as well. William May (or Mayes), aboard the Pearl, was also from Rhode Island and previously served under notorious pirate William Kidd. May later retired in Newport and operated the White Horse Tavern for many years. These 6 pirates made away with £600,000 in precious metals and jewels, equivalent to around £89.6 million today, making Henry Every the richest pirate in the world. This led to a £1,000 bounty being offered by the Privy Council for his capture, and the first worldwide manhunt in recorded history.

Bartholomew Roberts, also known as Black Bart, was the most successful pirate of the Golden age of Piracy.

Starting off his career as just a regular sailor, he quickly realized being a captain was the way to earn him fortune and respect. After his ship was captured by pirates, the captain of the ship took notice of him and brought him aboard. After that he quickly showed an aptitude for the pirate life, working his way up through the ranks.

After his ship was attacked on the island of Principe and the captain was killed, Roberts started his own crew and went to avenge the death of the captain. He is quoted as saying his famous line “For I have dipped my hands in muddy waters, and have found it is better to be a commander, than a common man” when he became a captain.

After that he had one of the most successful pirate careers in history, taking over 400 prizes in his lifetime. Eventually though, his ship was cornered and Roberts was killed by the Royal Navy, but not before cementing himself in history as one of the most famous pirates of the Golden Age.

A flintlock I made in grade 10 for @workshop.127! I plan to do a second in the future, and may include a decorative trigger. The flint mechanism is a custom metal cast.

Nassau, also known as New Providence Island, was an English territory in the Caribbean.
Founded by the British in 1670, it originally went by the name Charles town. It prospered as a colony before being burned down by the Spanish in 1684 during of the many wars Spain and England had during this time period.
By the beginning of the 18th century however, it became the home to many crews of pirates, who made it their own personal kingdom, free from civilization.
It was the home and base of many famous pirates, including Charles Vane, Jack Rackham, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, Benjamin Hornigold, and Edward Teach, also known as the infamous Blackbeard.(pictures the the television series Black Sails)
