The Li'l Dutchman is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It is a ghost of a pirate ship with the Team Fortress 2 logo and three skulls (a skull with crossbones, a skull wearing the Soldier's helmet with rockets replacing the crossbones, and a skull wearing the Scout's hat and headpiece with baseball bats replacing the crossbones) on its sails that floats behind the player. When worn by the Demoman, the skull on the front is given a pirate bandana and an eye-patch over the left eye, and the crossbones are replaced with swords.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
