Best Parzival Costume Guide
Parzival is the avatar used by Wade Watts, the main character in Steven Spielberg’s 2018 film Ready Player One, based on the novel by Ernest Cline. Wade is the narrator of the film, as well as the main protagonist, and is portrayed as a video game obsessed young man who doesn’t socialize well. This results in him becoming a bit of loner. He is particularly obsessed with a video game creator named Halliday, who created a virtual reality world called OASIS.
As Parzival, Wade can be the adventurous hero he feels he can never be in real life, which is part of what makes the virtual reality world so important to him. If you’re ready to conquer OASIS as the avatar Parzival, you’ll need a Black T-Shirt, Black Pants, Denim Vest, Extra Life Token, Parzival Waist Bag, Blue Body Paint, White Wig, Ready Player One Key Pack and Blue Converse.

Wade Watts is the narrator and main character of the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One. Fans would be aware the book was adapted into a blockbuster film of the same name in 2018, directed by screen legend Steven Spielberg. Wade is an orphan, having had a troubled upbringing which has left him with no family, no friends, and very few social skills in the real world. Through isolation and loneliness, he turned his hand to video games in order to escape the reality of his life.
In the virtual reality world of OASIS, he uses the avatar of Parzival as he attempts to unlock all the Easter eggs hidden in the game by mysterious creator Halliday. Parzival is named after King Arthur’s knight, Percival, who was the one to finally find the Holy Grail, which is fitting for Wade’s quest to unlock all the secrets of OASIS.
