The captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, Monkey D. Luffy accidentally ate a paramecia-type Gum-Gum fruit, which caused his body to gain properties of highly stretchable rubber. In addition, Luffy eventually learned to use a mysterious ability known as Haki, which literally means “ambition”.
After Shanks saved his life when he was only 7 years old, Luffy decided to achieve the tantamount goals of finding the titular treasure and succeeding Gold Roger as King of the Pirates. Ten years later, wearing Shanks’ hat, he set out to sea to gather a crew and sail the Grand Line, where the One Piece is supposedly hidden.
A spectacular photo taken by the cosplayer himself! Yes, according to Tiranical, Amiel Amores took this photo of himself. I have no idea how, but you can visit his Facebook Page and ask him yourself. Thanks again to Tiranical for sending this!
