Channeling the Heavenly Yaksha: Becoming Donquixote Doflamingo

From Tyrannical Ruler to Cunning Manipulator: Tips, Techniques, and Outfit Essentials for Doflamingo

Doflamingo is subdued in a battle against Luffy and- wait, wait, wait. Not the timeskip. Let’s start from scratch. Born a Celestial Dragon, he turns out to be the antithesis of his benevolent father Donquixote Homing. His father leaves the nobility to live among the commoners and the entire family is persecuted with the father dying and the mother always on her deathbed. Doflamingo is the one who commits the patricide.

Having underwent a traumatic childhood, Donquixote Doflamingo forms the Donquixote Pirates and deals with trafficking of weapons and production of artificial devil fruits. Member of the Shichibukai; he topples the Dressrosa government and wrongly employs his Ito Ito no Mi power for manipulating the public, and whatnot. Eventually, Luffy gets the better of him in a fight and he is sent to Impel Down to rot.

The underworld broker ‘Joker’ can create, control, and manipulate strings at will. Moreover, Doflamingo demonstrates the ability to awaken his Devil Fruit powers, which enhances their potency and grants him even greater control over whatever is in his vicinity. Doflamingo also possesses Haoshoku Haki which aids him in asserting himself and exerting his willpower over others. He can manipulate people by controlling them like puppets, literally.

Portraying Doflamingo: Capturing His Charisma and Malevolence

  • Be remorseless: Because of whatever he went through, Doflamingo turns out to be extremely merciless since he perceives weakness to be unacceptable.
  • Indulge your egoistic tendencies: Basically, ‘Joker’ has a god complex and looks down upon others while considering them to be worthless.
  • Have a taste of anger and resentment: His desire for revenge fuels much of his ambition and drives him to seek control and domination over others.

Creating Doflamingo’s Look: Key Elements and Styling Tips

  • Sunglasses: His glasses have a purple tint, adding to his enigmatic aura.
  • Suit: Doflamingo’s suit is tight-fitted giving him an elegant and sophisticated look.
  • Accessorization: The accessories like a belt, serve to further emphasize his wealth and status, as well as add intricate details to his overall look.

“Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed. Whoever wins this war becomes justice!”
