It’s the end of October and Halloween is right around the corner. When it comes to Halloween, one of the favorite traditions is the costumes. In fact, today’s topic of coloring pages is among the most popular choices for Halloween costumes. Any guess? Hint: They are no stranger to strange seas and ships.

Pirates are those who rob, steal, or perform other criminal violence upon other ships or in coastal areas. The ships used by the pirates for their acts of piracy are called pirate ships. While real-life pirates are dangerous and have caused serious damage to property and lives, the fictional pirates in films or books with stereotypical characteristics have gained immense popularity.

If you haven’t read or watched the film or series adaptations, get ready for an adventure time.
