THIS COSPLAY GIVES US AN IDEA OF HOW ONE PIECE’S MONKEY D. LUFFY COULD LOOK LIKE A WOMAN, BUT IN HIS VERSION OF LUFFYTARO
Currently, the One Piece anime, like the manga, is set in the Wano Country Arc. This stage of history takes place in this nation, which is reminiscent of feudal Japan for its customs.
In order to go unnoticed, Monkey D. Luffy and his nakama decided to dress in the custom of this country, in addition to acquiring other names. This is how Luffy put on Luffytaro, with which he is known to the inhabitants.
LUFFYTARO, THE VERSION OF LUFFY IN THE COUNTRY OF WANO
While he is there, he wears a kind of red yukata – traditional Japanese clothing – which has patches of light blue and dark blue fabric with circular motifs.
Around his waist he wears a yellow ribbon. The above is complemented by a pair of sandals, and of course, the inevitable straw hat. Something that also accompanies it is a katana. Luffy also decided to comb his hair the samurai style in Wano.
It is in this way that at least in the eyes of the inhabitants of that country he seems one of them. It should be noted that this outfit was used for a long time in the One Piece Wano Country Arc.
But with what the manga has advanced, he left it behind for one more similar to the one he always carries. The fact is that this appearance has become very popular in the series. There are many products based on it, among which the figures stand out.
ONE PIECE IS IN A VERY IMPORTANT STAGE
Of course, the fan arts are not necessary, and less the cosplays. In the case of the latter we have a new contribution. This time it’s from Magliocca Alessia (@ agliocca.alessia.nerd), an Italian cosplayer.
As you will notice, it is a gender bender interpretation. What we mentioned before can be seen in this interpretation. However, we think he has some problems. Especially hair.
We know that many cosplayers tend to accommodate the characters they play. But in the case of Monkey D. Luffy, a long hair does not go with the image of him.
A One Piece fan would notice that this cosplay is based on Luffytaro, but only looking at details like the scars. For the unfamiliar it is a difficult characterization to identify. It’s an interesting endeavor, but a few extra details and tweaks would have helped.
