Eiichiro Oda's One Piece may be filled with cute and memorable women, but the only characters who have really experimented with different looks are the main women of the Straw Hat crew Nami and Nico Robin.
But thanks to a new line of formal figures, now One Piece fans can see how Boa Hancock, Vivi, Nami, and even Perona look in wedding dresses.
Banprestro is releasing a line of One Piece's women in wedding gowns and attire as part of the LADY EDGE: WEDDING collection. Nami, Boa Hancock, Princess Vivi, and Perona are each available in either a white wedding gown or a variant version featuring their signature colors. Unfortunately, this collection will only be available in Japanese arcades.
Coming to Japanese arcade as a series of crane game prizes, the LADY EDGE: WEDDING figures will begin their rollout between June and September with Boa Hancock being the first in the line available. You can find more images of the full collection here.
It's unfortunately been a while since fans have seen Boa Hancock and Perona, but Princess Vivi has recently shown up again in the manga as part of the Reverie arc. Fans were definitely happy to see her back.
