Films: The films are perhaps one of the most liked areas, which have gained the huge popularity in the recent times. “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie series is one of the perfect instances in this respect. Protagonist Captain Jack Sparrow and other characters of the film provide a lot to the people. Jack Sparrow-style pirate costumes are popular among both men and women in the present scenario. On the other hand, a number of animation films have also been composed, such as “Sinbad! The Legend of the Seven Seas”, “The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists” and more.
Literature: A number of books have also been written on the pirate themes, which we can categorize into two categories – non-fiction and fiction. The non-fiction books comprise of biographies of the notorious pirates. “A General History of Pyrates” was the first account written on a number of freebooters of pre-medieval, medieval and renaissance eras. Besides, the books on the detailed descriptions of some famous freebooters have also been written separately. Some of the freebooters, on which the biographies have been written, include Blackbeard, Mary Read, Calico Jack and Anne Bonny etc. In the fiction, we can mark the novels, written on the pirate themes. “The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientist” and “The Pirates! in an Adventure with Communists” etc. are the popular books on the pirate themes.
Festivals: The pirate festivals are celebrated in various cities in the western world, which are the perfect instances for the people’s interests in the pirate lifestyles. In addition, a special pirate weekend is also organized in the renaissance festivals. These special pirate events provide the demonstrations of the lifestyles of the raiders. Pirate games, pirate-style entertainment, contemporary entertainment and a lot of other things can be witnessed at these festivals.
Clothing: The pirate clothing is the major subject of allure among the people. This is the clothing in the dark shades, which pirates used to wear in the medieval and the renaissance eras, or the fictional pirates wear in the movies. This clothing has become the fashion trend in the recent times. Such clothing is worn a lot in the pirate festivals, weekends and many other pirate themed events such as Pirates of the Caribbean birthday parties. Besides, you can wear them in a number of casual gatherings and parties also.
There is no doubt that the lifestyles of the pirates are alluring more and more people today. But, have in mind, this popularity is because of their bravery and funky styles, and it has nothing to do with the outlaw acts, which they used to perform.
