One Piece has a large cast of characters for cosplayers to give their renditions on, and one of the latest interpretations uses a low-budget NSFW design to incredible effect.

As many know, cosplayers use every trick in the book to bring characters from anime, movies, video game, and more to life. While some artists incorporate everything from intricate lights, textures, effects, etc, others tend to do more by putting on a lot less.

In a revealing cosplay, one fan created a hilarious way to get the best out of longtime series mainstay Boa Hancock as well as main protagonist Monkey D. Luffy in an impressive 2-for-1 design.

Toei AnimationBoa has always been a popular character for cosplayers to give their take on.

Using just a thong, straw hat and ample paint, popular cosplayer ‘Low Cost Cosplay’ was able to recreate some of the most iconic characters from the entire series.

The cosplayer painted on Luffy’s red shirt using a similar color that came down from both shoulders across either side of his torso and completely down both arms.

He did the same with Luffy’s blue pants and yellow sash belt. To make the cosplay easier, he’s only wearing the blue thong to paint over, but a bit of precision posing was necessary for the second part of the fit.

The cosplayer must have had some help from someone else since he has painted an intricate Boa on his back side.

Though for Boa’s most prominent features, he instead used his rear end to give his portrait of Boa the appropriate proportions.

When it comes to committing to the cosplay, Low Budget Cosplay actually does a great job in making sure his work isn’t compromised. The final shot of his dual-paint job shows him slightly crouched.

Even though there are cosplayers who invest tons of time and resources to make the best cosplay they can, Low Cost Cosplay shows there’s an art to keeping things simple.

A Sword Art Online cosplayer went viral on Instagram after sharing her transformation into popular anime character Sinon. The artist’s stunning take brings the Phantom Bullet heroine to life.

Originally written in 2002 by novelist Reki Kawahara, Sword Art Online exploded in popularity a decade later with its animated adaptation in 2012. Viewers around the world have fallen in love with its creative take on massively multiplayer online role playing games.

Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘hendoart‘ Hendo made waves on social media when she shared her costume based on the anime’s second season arc, the Phantom Bullet. The talented artist brought the beloved blue-haired sniper Sinon to life with an insanely accurate take.

While the series starts off with protagonist Kazuto Kirigaya getting stuck in the virtual world of Aincrad, the show’s later seasons take place in a different online video game. In season two, Kirito meets a fierce sniper with a deadly aim named Sinon.

Bringing the heroine to life, cosplayer Hendoart shared her mind-blowing transformation into the character on Instagram. Photographer ‘nerdypictures‘ captured the artist posing in her signature outfit. The costume is full of meticulous detail, and includes a cut out black and white bodysuit which runs under her green jacket and leggings.

Sarah recreated a scene from the anime, and mirrored Sinon’s battle stance by holding her iconic sniper rifle behind her head. The life-size prop weapon was created by ‘airsoftevike‘ and is so accurate that it looks as if it could have come straight out of the screen.
