Cosplayer Alyson Tabbitha gave the word crossplay another definition recently when she dressed as Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.

She transformed her face with Mehron and E.L.F. products – including adding facial hair – and ended up looking quite a bit like Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow.
Alyson created a step by step tutorial showing how the look came together:
