Portrait of Cherrie


Cherrie, who was from the Los Angeles, California, USA area, said her friend brought her to the Ventura Pirate Festival at Ventura Harbor for the first time the day that we met and she was “having a blast.”

Cherrie pieced together her costume from various articles of clothing that she had. She believed that her costume represented a costume that a well-kept pirate’s wife or pirate’s mistress would have owned. A friend of hers gave her a few of the pieces and some of the pieces she had inherited.
