Penny Rose, a wonderful costume designer was chosen to make the pirate costumes for the series of Pirates of the Caribbean which starred Johnny Depp as the main character, Captain Jack Sparrow. Rose had been working for the film industry since 1970’s and she has till now been nominated 3 times and has won the Satellite Award for Best Costume Design and Saturn Award for Best Costume, for the films of the series of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
For Depp’s character she worked alongside Depp to create a very impressive pirate costume for his role, adding many realistic and unique features such as the many objects hanging in Sparrow’s dreadlocks and his signature leather hat. Having much experience, Rose was able to give Sparrow the proper look needed for a witty, cunning pirate, the look that Depp was able to carry with his role very efficiently, especially in the second movie of the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
