View Full Version : Help! [Light Yagami from Death Note]

06-20-2008, 05:56 PM
My cousin and I were cosplaying from Death Note for fun and I chose to be Light. When I got in costume I realized how much I like cosplaying him (despite the fact I hate him, lol). I've made my face look more masculine and worked on an evil glare, but I still need that evil smile. I've tried and nothing works.

Also if you see something that you think I could improve on, please tell me!
(I am going to cosplay Light when he has longer hair...it's easier for me to use my natural hair - all I have to do is pull layers out of a ponytail - rather than purchase a wig)

to do the evil smile you just kinda do a half smile then make your eyes look angry! and make sure u dont show your ear wen you do your hair like that^_^

I'm planning on getting a wig...maybe...that's my natural hair, lol. It's hard to get it the way I want without hacking it all off >.<

I think your hair suits Light just fine. The first picture looks eerily like him. :D But I agree it's hard getting a nice evil smirk just right. I would just practice in front of a mirror for a bit.

I've got a ponytail in the back that I can hide with the other layers and beneath the collar of the shirt. I've got better pictures of me as Light, after I practiced looking evil, lol.
