The world of One Piece is a massive one with over 900 episodes of the anime aired and more than 90 volumes of the manga available. It stands as one of the greatest of all time, alongside other excellent titles such as Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter.
It’s no surprise that many excellent cosplays have stemmed from the long-running series. With a broad range of iconic characters to choose from, there’s a little something for anyone who wants to put on their best pirate hat. Here are the 10 best One Piece cosplays that look exactly like the characters.
10 Boa Hancock
As the eldest of the Gorgon Sisters, Boa Hancock is One Piece‘s most famous femme fatale. Her beauty is legendary and she’s known to be one of the most stunning women in the world. Her love for Monkey D. Luffy is so wild and untamed that it has been the cause of several conflicts throughout the series.
Thai cosplayer PooRin brings the lovestruck Hancock to life with a simple yet accurate look inspired by one of the character’s most famous outfits. Because details are essential in cosplay, PooRin even included a humorous edit for one of her photos — the hearts that visibly depict her love for Luffy.
9 Silvers Rayleigh
Also known as the “Dark King,” Silvers Rayleigh is a retired pirate that eventually becomes one of Luffy’s mentors. He’s an important supportive figure who teaches the protagonist about Haki, a strange power that needs to be awakened within each individual.
Professional Saudi Arabian cosplayer Vega pulls off a convincing Rayleigh. The wig and the glasses are spot-on, of course, but the outfit is perfectly detailed down to the spotted pants. Even the shoes are very much congruent with the aesthetic of the One Piece universe. All Vega needs is a flask and a sword and he’ll be good as gold!
8 Monkey D. Luffy
Monkey D. Luffy is the main protagonist of the One Piece series and one of the most popular anime/manga characters of all time. His quest to become the Pirate King is the basis for the expansive adventure.
It’s difficult to cosplay Luffy without looking like the average beachgoer wearing a straw hat, but French cosplayer SenchO expertly nails the character’s look. His outfits are top-notch and the accessories are brilliant. He even manages to capture that wide, overly excited expression that is present in Luffy’s eyes at all times. It’s an art form far more difficult to master than Haki.
7 Roronoa Zoro
Roronoa Zoro is a fun character to cosplay for several reasons. For starters, you get to wear a green wig or dye your natural hair (depending on the level of commitment). He’s one of the most dangerous members of the Straw Hat Pirates, so he’s obviously a fan favorite.
You also have an excuse to carry three swords around at all times, but the best part is that you get to tuck one between your teeth and not be considered absolutely insane. Cosplayer Hytez definitely makes the most of these perks while donning different Zoro outfits from various story arcs.
Crocodile is one of Luffy’s main antagonists — as if the large hook didn’t make it obvious. Anyone with a hook for a hand is bound to be a villain by default. Croc is built like a mammoth in the anime and manga, but all you need is a cigar, a nice coat, a green scarf, and a facial scar to form his look.
The defining factors for this costume are the quality of the hook and the ability to simply look like a bad guy. A Chinese One Piece cosplayer named Hydra nailed every one of these aspects in the best way possible.
5 Eustass Kid
Eustass Kid is part of a group of twelve rookie pirates referred to as the “Worst Generation.” His outfits are eccentric, with the most signature pieces being a pair of square goggles and a massive fur coat. Kid’s most notable weapon is the huge metallic hand that he forms out of scrap metal while using his magnetism.
Fogmonkey_cosplay‘s look covers all the bases for a perfect Eustass Kid cosplay, including the scars that appeared on the character after a time skip. The cosplayer boasts an impressive metallic arm replica that took a lot of time and effort to craft.
Nami is considered one of the more prominent characters of One Piece. She becomes the navigator of the Straw Hat Pirates early on and holds her own within the series. The navigator is a significant position seeing as how she determines which direction the ship will go while they’re out in open water.
Sammy from The Netherlands could just about double as the human incarnation of Nami. The orange hair and the brown eyes are obvious similarities, but the outfit is also detailed to the nines. The kimono comes courtesy of ezcosplay, which came packaged with the blue hair bow. Sammy also acquired the log pose watch from the same company.
3 Dracule Mihawk
Aside from having an awesome name, Dracule Mihawk is one of the coolest pirates in One Piece. He’s a levelheaded character who also happens to be the “Strongest Swordsman in the World.” You can’t ask for a better title than that.
Cosplayer Dorian Amaury is practically Mihawk brought to life. Everything from the contact lenses to the ensemble is brilliant. However, it’s the “facial hair” that really makes this costume and Mihawk might just have the best barber in anime and manga combined. His facial hair could probably cut through steel if he put just the right amount of effort into it.
Sure, Sanji might be a smooth operator with a composed demeanor, but his famous womanizing ways are the heart of the character. This is such a prominent aspect of his personality that video games like Jump Force prohibit him from fighting females. As the official chef of the Straw Hat Pirates, he’s one of One Piece‘s most beloved heroes.
Mastering Sanji’s look boils down to the wonky eyebrow design and a worthy wig. Cosplayer Eiki nails both of those things, plus he keeps a cigarette on hand for good measure. His sleek outfit of choice is also one of Sanji’s more well-known looks.
1 Roronoa Zoro
While Roronoa Zoro and Dorian Amaury both made appearances earlier on this list, this cosplay — and this photo in particular — was too good to ignore. With a little help from a talented photo editor, the cosplayer was transported into the One Piece anime as Zoro himself.
The costume is incredible and the fighting stance is impressively convincing. Then again, it’s hard to not look intense when you’ve got two swords in hand and the third one in your mouth. Even though this is just cosplay, Dorian could use it to prove his case for a role in a live-action One Piece project.
