As a One Piece fan, one of the prized item that I always had been wanting to get was the straw hat worn by Monkey D. Luffy. Finally my wish has came true as it is now available for preorder via Premium Bandai!
The straw hats are specially handcrafted by, Shoji Ishida, a master that specialises in the creation of straw hats, and was placed 2nd in an international competition in France.
The crown of the straw hat is 57.5cm and it retails for 4,980 yen on Premium Bandai. I’ve just placed one preorder for myself and hopefully it will arrive by Aug 2010.
The straw hat would be a great accessory to wear on a nice sunny day when I go out for photoshoots.
