And now for a short but sweet interview with Captain Shayna of DressLikeAPirate.com:
Q: Cap’n Shayna, when did you first get interested in pirates?
A: Well, I started many lifetimes ago as a Washerwoman at Southern California Pleasure Faire, so I always knew a subculture was there. I took a left turn in 1978 or so when I heard my first Ramones song and went in a different direction; it wasn’t until I went to a pirate themed wedding that I realized that the subculture was still there. Since I’m too punk rock for Renaissance, Pirate fits me perfectly.
