Did you know why pirates are often represented with a prosthetic hook on one arm? That idea originated with Captain Hook in the story of Peter Pan. The author of the original Peter Pan play, J.M. Barrie, seems to have taken his inspiration from the real-life privateer Captain Christopher Newport, who lost an arm in a battle and went on for twenty years, raiding Spanish and Portuguese ships in the Carribean and helping to establish the colony of Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in North America.
A pirate hook is a must-have accessory for a pirate costume, and this project shows you how to make one.
