I love everything Captain Jack Sparrow, his effects and his affects........

I do not love everything POTC, nor everything Johnny Depp--Just Jack!


I wish I had not fallen in love with Jack and all his stuff.  Dateline Feburary 27, 2008.  I was out in the garage, had the door up cause it was  a  nice day and I was moving around some boxes when a friend came ambling up the driveway and said, "Do you think you could make  a  costume for me"?  Ten little words that have made  a  gargantuan impact on my life!  If someone had told me then that I would succumb to OCD and surrender nearly every waking moment to the relentless pursuit of things Captain Jack Sparrow, I'd have laughed them off the planet. But here I am......


I think it all started with the first Jack thing I ever actually owned--a Mad Eye Moony Tricorn.  It is so esquisite, so beautifully made, so Jack and it quickly became an item I very much adored.  And when I was working on the coats and had to be me own model at times when no one was around to help me, it was a little trippy--it's like you get the coat on and Jack just kinda comes out!?  It's real weird, and I'm female and not a costumer myself and not an impersonator, but that don't stop the essences of Jack being there!!


I don't have all that Jack stuff....

I don't dress up as Jack.....

I don't impersonate Jack.....


I made the vest, shirt and two frocks for

others, but I don't want them for myself,

I just like the little things really,


The palm glove and wristwrap and Christmas ornament and compass I made.

The MR rings & PO8 and bandana and kuchi strand and Davey Jones key and Aztec coin

     and Sparrow tattoo stamp I bought.

The tricorn and baldric I got in trades. 

The Letter of Marque I need to finish.

And some POTC stuff I buy when I catch it on sale, books,

    stickers, markers, doodads of any and all kinds.....

I have the toy sword needs the repaint and the Zizzle toy pistol that needs a mod/repaint

as well.....


Things on my wish list,

the Jack doll by Tonner

The Jack Medicom 12" doll with fabric clothes

the skull ring

the Sparrow flintlock like the one Mr.Smith had made cause it is BEAUTIFUL

stuff for my charm bracelet


And I guess not everything CJS, there are a few things that do not interest me,

The breeches, the wig, the boots, the facial hair, the syphilis scar, the gold teeth, the sash, either of the belts, the mum's head--in fact I specifically HATE that shrunken head and the pelts and chicken foot and snake vertebra all that gross stuff........the fertility charm--cause Jack wouldn't even need that.....

and I guess that's about everything.............


This is my 'secret addiction'.  My friends and family don't really know about it.  Well, they know I made the frock coats and that Ihat I was kinda into the movies for a while, but I gradually quit talking about it with them cause they didn't understand and were beginning to think me peculiar!
