return to the cosplay

Mrs Bugg looks pretty fierce with those daggers! Mr Bugg’s flintlock pistol would probably aerate her nicely from a distance, though.

only missing the parrot this time

However, an acceptable alternative to the parrot, the lovely red frock coat, is an excellent substitution. Throw a tricorn hat in there, and you are golden.

an excellent choice

When presented with no good options, always choose something that involves (a) weaponry; (b) wooden legs; (c) parrots; and/or (d) great big bushy beards. A combination of all four of those? SUPERIOR.

Funny, I don’t remember him having a pirate hat. Ah, hell, let’s just run with it. Also: Mrs Bugg as the ship’s figurehead, YAY!

pirates vs ninjas, part one million

Oh, man, Mrs Bugg is going to do some damage with those wicked spikes on her boot-heels.

the other fight club

The Buggs will use absolutely any excuse to : Fight Cosplay Cosplay pirates or ninjas Chop off limbs in the name of convincing cosplay Transcript: Mr Bugg is the pirate this time, with a swashbuckling feathered hat, cutlass, small pistol and eyepatch. He’s also got one peg-leg and one regular leg, with what I strongly suspect is a very cool, pirate-y boot. Mrs Bugg is the ninja, and she is all in black as we would expect. She’s flourishing a trident in one hand and nunchucks in the other, and her leg is raised and ready to kick Mr Bugg’s hat clean off him. The text reads: “Sometimes you just need to have a pirate vs. ninja fight.”  

pirates!

Can I just say right now that I’m glad they didn’t re-enact the beheading and/or the tying of Bugbeard’s head to Maynard’s ship? Because ew. Transcript: Mr Bugg is cosplaying as a Royal Navy captain, waving a flintlock pistol and grinning hugely. Mrs Bugg, meanwhile, is rocking a peg leg and a huge beard, waving a cutlass which was apparently not enough to stop another cutlass being poked into her chest. A bloodstain is spreading across her chest, and she looks sad that her life of profitable piracy is coming to an end. The text reads: “Bugvember 22, 1718: Bugbeard the pirate is killed off the coast of North Buggalina.”  

arrrrrgghhh

That’s some superior pirate cosplay there, guys! I should get them a good galleon to go plundering in. Transcript: Mr and Mrs Bugg are in full pirate regalia. Mr Bugg has cut off a leg and inserted a peg leg, and is waving a cutlass and a musket while a parrot sits on his shoulder. Oh, and he’s wearing an eyepatch. Meanwhile, Mrs Bugg is wearing a killer tricorn hat with the skull and bones on it. She’s cut off one of her hands and replaced with with a hook, and is also waving a cutlass. She’s also sporting a great big bushy beard, which we know she likes. The text reads: “Adn … Buggs with props. Arrrrgghh … Capt. Pointy and GrapeBeard.”
