Jake and the Never Land Pirates is a musical interactive animated Disney Junior show that won the Annie Award for best children’s show of the year. It not only allows for the child to be entertained but also helps with learning skills as well.
Jake and the Never Land Pirates is based on a band of young pirates that include Jake, Izzy, Cubby and their parrot Skully who spend their days competing against Captain Hook and his side kick Mr. Smee for the treasure.
Jake and the Neverland Pirates are based off of the widely popular book and movie called Peter Pan and today I want to show you how to create your own Izzy costume.
They have taken Peter Pan basically and turned him into a young boy pirate that stars in a children’s cartoon series. The new season of Jake and the Neverland Pirates aired on January 3, 2014. It is in its third season, with number four in the making.
Izzy Pirate Costume
To make your life easier here are two pre-made outfit choices that include all the items you’ll need, just add your own personal touches and you’re ready to go!
Homemade Izzy Costume
You will need the following supplies:
- Red bandana or a piece of red fabric that is 17” square
- Grey fabric (long enough to wrap around the child’s waist for a belt)
- Black yarn or ribbon
- Yellow duct tape
- Four large buttons
- White T-shirt
- Dark blue vest or jacket
- Blue jeans or pants
- Brown boots
- Brown cardboard
Take the white t- shirt and cut off the collar and make a v shaped cut in the front of the shirt in the center of the neck line. Also make a few v shaped cuts in the sleeves of the shirt. Using a needle sew/stitch an x at the v in the front of the shirt at the collar line.
Next you will need to make the vest, if you are using a jacket cut it to make it into a vest. When you have done that use the yellow duct tape to outline the vest with. You will also use the duct tape to cover the buttons with to make them yellow. You then want to attach the buttons to the vest.
Then you will need to cut out the letter J from the yellow duct tape and attach it to both of the boots. Add a yellow strap to the boots using the yellow duct tape.
The last thing you need to do is draw a sword shape onto the card board and cut it out. The rest of it is putting the outfit together and having fun. If you don’t want to spend the time making the costume you can always buy it out of the store. There are also online websites that you can purchase the costume from at reasonable prices.
Jake and the Neverland Pirates have won two awards including the Annie Award and the Young Artist Award and were nominated for Daytime Emmy Award as well. The group runs around having fun and retrieving things back from Captain Hook that he has stolen. Each character in the series has their own catch phrase that they stick to and makes them unique.
