I'm using dinosaurs instead of boats, it's decided. I hope it'll work out better than dinosaur lords did...  :P

Goddamnit those anti-piracy videos. So irritating. Especially because the people who have to sit through the damn things are the ones who bought the bloody film in the first place - pirated copies don't usually have that!  >:(

Hmm.... The first thing I thought of when I saw this theme was the film Treasure Planet. So many potential forms of piracy I'm not sure which one to pick ;D.

I can't believe nobody commented on xia's photo yet... ;D
Was that a thing for everybody in 2012? Are there photos of Wolfie dressed as a pirate (eh, @Nighteyes?), or the older oldies?

I hadn't commented purely on the basis that I thought it was a vision induced by my feverish brain.

It did remind me of the year my little sister dressed up as captain hook to go with her friend as peter pan for Halloween. Apologies if you were seeking more, though I do agree with Raptori on its awesomeness.

Nah it was just @xiagan who did that. He acted out an entire story through a series of photos of him dressed as all the characters in the story. Xiagan the parrot was quite cute but Xiagan the pirate princess was all kinds of wrong. Took months to burn that image out of my retinas.
