DIY Pirate Costume

The company's having a costume party soon, and I don't really want to buy or rent a costume that I'll only use once. What to do? When in doubt, DIY. The theme this year is Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm not going to fashion my own hat, eye patch, fake beard, dirty clothes, etc., so I opted to come to the party as a music pirate. All I need is a customized shirt. The front will have a picture of a skull-and-crossbones wearing headphones. At the back of the shirt are the words MUSIC PIRATE in bold white. Put on a pair of real headphones and an mp3 player to complete the look. Neat, huh? Hopefully, there are no RIAA agents at the party.
