Over on Instagram, the user vanillecos got One Piece fans going with their take on the pirate.

As you can see above, this version of Luffy goes back to basics. The girl is seen wearing a scoop-neck tank in Luffy's vibrant red shade. A row of yellow buttons have been sewn on to mimic his top, and the cosplay features fleece-lined jean shots.
Aside from the outfit, Luffy comes together with long dark hair that is divide into ties. A scar was inked onto the fan's face in perfect style, and the look completes itself with a straw hat. The accessory looks like it was plucked right from the anime, so it would surely earn Shanks' seal of approval.
This stunning cosplay is just one of many that One Piece has earned this year alone. The manga made headlines the world over when it reached its 1,000th chapter at the start of 2021. Now, the manga is heading towards the climax of its best arc yet, so we can only assume more epic cosplays are to come of Luffy's gang!
