In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave viewers a better look at all the details that went into creating her One Piece costume. She even drew letters on the back of her fingers to spell out ‘DEATH’ to mimic his hand tattoo.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
