Anyone here ever read any of the manga Death Note? Because I was curious if any of you had ever planned on doing Death Note cosplay.

I adore death note, I recently did an L cosplay. You could check out my image gallery or just go here. ---> http://www.livejournal.com/community/death_note/55580.html?mode=reply

The user Cvy also did a nice L cosplay. I actually recently asked about a Light (Raito) wig in the wig forum. I don't think the ideas can truly manifest until some people who want to do Ryuuku or other Death Note shinigami's come out. It's a tough costume to do, but it'd make a nice small gathering with just one at a convention.

Death Note is *awesome*. For next year's Otakon my friends and I are trying to organise a cosplay for it, but it looks like it's going to get bumped for D.N.Angel. Too bad...

I love Death Note~

Not sure if I'm going to do DN cosplay but you never know right?

Death Note rocks....!

Pandatarou: Your L is pretty cool, I like the contrast and your eye makeup :3 but--aw.. you dont like the pairing? ^.^'' I tried to do L first but my hair is much shorter than his and won't style right.. so I put together a Raito from my brothers' closets and a wig i had for another costume.

And Cvy is really cool also, but all the way in Singapore ;_; I wanna have a photoshoot with an L. playing Chess....(or Go, ehehe) the first con I'm bringing Raito to will be Ycon though, ohohoho~! To have a really good Ryuuku I think you'd need experience with theatre/effect makeup.. and a really tall/bulky model... but I agree, it'd be damncool to see.

...I love my black book... I'm planning to take my costume to the local cemetary for a shoot >:3 Raito's such an easy costume, but if I didn't have anything to separate me from an ordinary schoolboy, I'd get mistaken for a Battle Royale kid...

I adore Death Note. It is, quite possibly, the most intelligently-written manga I've ever come across. I'd love to do L, but because I look just awful with bags under my eyes, I'll probably opt for Raito instead.. that, and L is such a simple costume, so I'd feel a bit unfulfilled. It isn't cosplay unless you've frustrated the hell out of yourself sewing into the wee hours of the night the day before the con! :p

panda_tarou, your L is excellent! You two have very similar facial features. ^^ I'd love to see you wear that to a con!

If anyone is intereseted in seeing some Ryuuku cosplayers... there are a few listed in D+Cosnote (the deathnote cosplay search site. jp.)

Ryuuku links: http://www.acpit.com/~rental1/atlinkb/linkdisp.cgi?ID=dcosnote&KEY1=j03&RT=s1&SORT1=1

some pretty awesome stuff :3 and I looooove all the Raito cosplayers XD

I dug around all through the net and found some spectacular L and Raito cosplay, some of which I've attached to this post - check them out! The Japanese really know their stuff.

Death Note is a wonderful manga, though a tad unbelievable at times. "I believe that Kira did this, but maybe he wanted me to believe that... or knew that I would know that he wanted me to believe that he knew that I'd know! Yeah! I got him!" Regardless, I love Raito's transformation and reasoning, and L is just so quirky and unusual that you can't help but adore him.

L and Raito would make great rainy day cosplay - I'd definitely be up for a few pictures sometime!

I just recently had a mini-L-photoshoot ^_^;

Looking for a Raito to play games with. XD

I am going to cosplay misha in the next few month with my friend Koenta as L *_* Though i like L more, i do not think i can pull him off^^; (my hair is too long)
I just adore the manga, every chapter is flood with information and intense suspense. It is just ingenious.

jetspectacular> i really liked your raito cosplay ^____^
panda> wahhh *_* L L L!! you really cos him well!
Dawn> your L is adorable too >w<)b kyaaa

Thank you guys for all the wonderful comments!

And I would enjoy wearing my L to a con as well, though I'm too poor to go to cons anymore, oh college life sucks sometimes. XD~ And I bet there would be about x500 other L's as well. :D
