Dragon Ball Piccolo Cape

A lucky Dragon Ball fan may soon channel the stern countenance of the Z-Warriors’ most dignified member, Piccolo. A promotion on the official Dragon Ball Twitter account is commemorating “Piccolo Day” (May 9th) with a contest. The winner will receive a unique wearable replica of the cape worn by Piccolo and frequently seen in Dragon Ball [Thanks, Game Watch].

Check out the tweet below.

The Dragon Ball Piccolo cape is a one-of-a-kind item, created by hand and crafted to resemble the Namekian champion’s distinct cloak. The white cape has a high collar that covers the wearer’s chin, with layered cloth that also covers the shoulders and chest. Its stiffened shoulders extend far outward to add presence. The replica itself measures 145cm from neck to hem (about 57 inches) and about 110cm (43 inches) wide at the shoulders.

To participate in the Dragon Ball Piccolo cape giveaway, people need only follow the official Dragon Ball Twitter account and retweet the contest announcement sometime before midnight on May 15, 2022. The winner will be notified via Twitter DM in June 2022, with the prize shipped out in July. Unfortunately for overseas fans, the contest is only open to those with an address in Japan.

The Dragon Ball Piccolo cape giveaway contest is open to those in Japan and runs until May 15, 2022. The next Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Super Super Hero, is due out in June 2022. It will feature both a yellow Piccolo and Gohan wearing the cape.
