Has anyone here ever cosplayed as Near from Death Note? If so, would you mind giving me some help on where i may obtain

White Pants
White Wig?

The white wig i know most of everyone recommends Scruffys but currently they are Out of Stock for it. So if anyone else knows a decent enough site to get a Near wig or a white wig that will be a good substitute to scruffys?
If the White wig is restocked at cosworx and i decide to get it, can anyone tell me if once i get it do i have to trim or work on it a bit to make it look like Near's?

As for the white pants i suppose i can get them at K-mart but if anyone can tell me somewhere else i can get them i'd appreciate it.

Also i need tips on make up for Near o.o

Check List
White button Up Dress shirt [X]
White Socks [X]
Near Finger puppets: L,Mello,Kira [X]

Edit x1
This is my first time cosplaying so i hope i will be able to do a good job at it o.o. I'll be attending the New York Comicon/New York Anime Festival 2010

Okay, there is already another thread about this. You should look for it before you start a new thread.

But to help you, for the wig, I recommend Cosplay Station (http://www.cosplaystation.ca). There the wig is already pre-styled.

And as for pants, the suggestions were scrubs or to make them yourself (if there were anymore I can't remember).

And I'm sure you'll do fine ^^

No problem, but remember with scrubs that the material probably won't match the material of the shirt, which may make the outfit a little awkward. I don't know yet since I haven't got around to doing my Near cosplay yet. ^^ Good luck though.

The Scruffy wig is, unfortunately, not going to be restocked (soon, at least.) There are a few good options (which would all require a little styling to be accurate.) Looking through some good cosplay wig sites turns up:
Long Scruffy in White. (http://shop.cosplay.com/wigs/cosworx/scruffy-l/scruffy-l-white.html) Longer than what you need, but you could easily cut off the extra length.
Zephyr's Soft Random (http://shop.cosplay.com/wigs/zephyr/soft-random.html) in White, or maybe in Silver. Might be a little short.
Airily's Wolf Base (http://shop.cosplay.com/wigs/airily/wolf-base.html) in one of the white or silver colors, if you want to go for a high-end wig and practice your wig styling skills.
Arda Wigs' Hansel (http://kingdom-arts.org/arda-wigs/hansel%20063%20silver%20gray.jpg) looks pretty nice, although they don't make it in pure white, so it won't work if you don't want the silvery-gray look.

Could you post a picture of the shirt you're planning on using? A dress shirt might not be the best idea. Near wears pajamas.
I don't know how you feel about sewing, but if you're up for it, Near's outfit would be a pretty easy project, even if you're a beginner.

I think it's awesome that you're going to have the finger puppets! Did you buy or make them?
I'll be at NYAF too, maybe I'll see you there! :)

Do you have a guess of when soon will be for the scruffy white wigs? I'll just buy the Long white Scruffy and style it if they can't restock by 1-2 weeks before the NYAF. Thanks for the suggestions =]

I can try for a better lighting of the picture if you can't see it well. But if its not the best idea to wear this shirt then i will go with your idea of sewing :D, hopefully my mom can help teach me the basics of sewing >_<.
Finger puppets i bought but since they didnt't have a Near Finger puppet, imma try to make it o.o
Hopefully i will see you there too at the NYAF =] will you be going as L or BB?

Thrift stores are your friend. I made my Near cosplay from thrift store items and clothing I already owned. And of course a wig.

So you got your wig from thrift store items?

For the pants, N actually doesn't wear white pants. Lots of Near cosplayers forget this.

If you look closely and pay attention, N actually has extremely light blue pants(faded out). You can find jeans like these at Target and Walmart.

he wears both depending on the medium i figure he likely has more then one set of pants so stick to pale fade out colors of a nuetral and you'd be fine.

As everyone's already said, this cosplay definately needs a good wig, if this isnt a dead thread i'd like to advise you look into the wig in this link:

this one ---> http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=92_270&products_id=257


It's really high quality, it comes pre-styled, and it's made of really good fibers, I truthfully buy all of my cosplay from here and www.cosplayhouse.com you should definately look into these...

Anyway, good luck with your cosplay, I hoped this helped d(^w^)b
