After watching the Netflix series I fell in love with this character! I knew of him before then but the series really made me truly appreciate what the character stood for. I opted for a genderbend of the original comic version of the character since it was a more iconic look. Fun Fact there was actually a female version called Power Girl in an alternate universe so technically it’s not really a gender bend 😉 This was yet another simple cosplay. I made the top and head band in a couple hours and just recycled the chains and arm bands from my Avatar Korra cosplay!
This is probably the proudest if not def one of the biggest moments in my entire cosplay journey so far. Out of over 4000+ applicants from around the world, I have been chosen as one of the top 20 One Piece cosplayers in the world and will be heading to Japan in a couple weeks!! I am also in this week's edition of Shonen Jump Magazine! My friend was able to snag me a copy! Words cannot express just how much this means to me, to be actually in the pages of this publication is the ultimate honor for a cosplayer and anime fan like myself. I am eternally grateful to the World Cosplay Summit Organisation, Shueisha, and Toei Animation for the opportunity and ofc to Oda sensei for creating such a uniquely amazing series!
