Aye Aye, Captain! Captain hook costumes are a popular choice for costume parties or Halloween, because of the iconic and recognizable look. Captain James Hook is a fictional character from the children’s tale of Peter Pan, a play written by Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie. Hook lost his right hand in a duel against Peter Pan, which he replaced with a hook. As well as the iconic Captain Hook red costume, we recommend adding his signature hook and curly black pirate wig.
