Dragon Ball cosplay taps into what a realistic Piccolo could look like.
Dragon Ball might have had its previous shot a live-action adaptation in the past with Dragonball: Evolution, but one awesome cosplay has gone beyond that by imagining what a truly realistic Piccolo would look like! Piccolo’s live-action debut alongside Goku and the others are the hilarious snowball that ended up bringing back the Dragon Ball franchise as a whole, but all these years later it’s still hard for many fans to forget how Piccolo and the rest of Akira Toriyama’s characters were treated in one of the most infamous live-action adaptations of all time. So fans are taking things into their own hands.
Piccolo has one of the more notable designs in the Dragon Ball franchise overall, but it seems like there’s still a way for the fan favorite Z Fighter to make it in the real world if enough care is put into making it happen. That’s especially the case with artist imprincedeguzman on TikTok, who has really taken off with Dragon Ball fans for a Piccolo cosplay that puts a cool realistic spin on the famous Namekian. Now it’s just a matter of following this look if Dragon Ball ever goes live-action again. Check it out below:
