View Full Version : Death Note - Misa - Alternate Outfits
05-03-2008, 06:40 PM
For our Death Note cosplay group, we're all going as Light, L, Misa, Mello, and Near. However, our cosplayer for Misa has a problem with outfits. Most of the outfits she's found she doesn't think her mother would allow.
Does anyone have pictures of the different outfits Misa wears and/or suggestions for a... uhm... I guess, less-revealing outfit?
Thanks in advance for any help.

What does she define as reveling? I mean her standard outfits (http://www.miyabi-japan.co.jp/store/images/figures/Misa_Amane_RAH.jpg) don't seem bad in terms of showing skin... basically along the lines of any school girl outfit... she wears panty hose to boot.... So if her mom finds that offensive, then I don't think she should cosplay Misa, as that's her trademark style, the whole gothic edge, and skirts being a common feature in her outfits.
As you've noted, she's found a few of Misa's outfits and they all follow a similar vein - and I'm sure she's seen the show, she has a couple standard outfits and deviations in a few episodes (I think ep 17(she had an outfit that looked like a skirt with suspenders), the last ep, and the one where she goes on a dinner date with Lights ex... those are the ones that stand out anyways).
Perhaps she could go as the reporter that Light has a fling with? Or the women bodyguard for Near...?

Well, most of Misas outfits to me arent that bad, but,
one of her costumes I've never found that bad.
It's rather popular too. But, I can't find a screenshot of it at the moment, but heres cosplayer wearing it:
The skirt looks a bit short, but its rather medium in length, mid theighish.
Theres not much other to pick from, pretty much all of her clothes are skirts with theigh high socks.

You could tell your friend to wear soffe shorts or spandex under her skirt. That way her mother wouldn't have to worry about her revealing anything.
I'm not a skirt person, but if I did wear them, I know I'd be doing that every time. ^.^

You might actually get more help if you post this in the anime section, as this particular forum is only for things that don't fit into the categories already covered in other forums (like fantasy and sci-fi movies and tv shows).

The classic Misa outfit consists of a white blouse/red tie/black skirt which isnt too short at all!! Out of all her outfits its the most modest and I struggle to understand why anyone would have a problem with it!!

Here are some. I don't think they're revealing.
(I think she is weaing this - http://gallery.digik.net/view/13717 - Under her jacket in the pic above)
(The one above is a dress, you just can't really see it since the white fluffly stuff is covering it)

The only outfits that I could picture her mother having a problem with are Misa's black dress (that she wears when she first goes to see Light in the anime), and the pink outift she wears when the 2 FBI guys come over (I forget the episode). But you could always alter costume designs. You could make a skirt longer or stuff like that. Also, she could always do the standard Misa outfit (white top, black skirt, red tie). Good luck with your group! DEATH NOTE FOREVER!!! :D

In one episode where she's singing her happy death song, she's wearing a Gothic Lolitaish outfit whichis VERY covering.
Here's the clip...

school girl misa is probably better considering there is something covering her legs
