Shaquille Dent, a sophomore at Cleveland Institute of Art is making rounds on the Internet due to his unique and creative hairstyle. Dubbed the “Black Goku,”in reference to the character from Dragon Ball Z, Dent’s hairstyle shows that Black people really do love cosplay.

The animation major told Buzzfeed, that he discovered his hair could hold a spike in middle school and never uses a barber and only spends about two hours, twice a month, fixing the low-maintenance style.

Dent is surprised at the attention his hair is getting and told BuzzFeed the reason his hairstyle went viral was because of all of the haters bashing him for his hair — but ended giving him shine.

    There are a TON of black folks all over the world who cosplay, and participate fashion subcultures, including those from Asia (which I also do). How do folks not know this? You’d be shocked to know how many do it.

    There’s a tumblr called Cosplaying while Black. It’s not my thing, but it’s a really interesting hobby. Many of the people who do it make all those costumes by hand.
