To be honest, I never dreamed of cosplaying a Death Note character. I like the series, but no specific character jumped out at me enough to make me want to cosplay as one of them. And besides, it is overdone and Light and L are way too simple.
But then my friend Maya cosplayed as Misa during Sugoicon 2008. My friend Roger wanted to get a photoshoot of her outfit. After that, we had a general cosplay photoshoot in general. It was mainly for Death Note but a few of us were different characters from other series.
Then I remembered that I had a shirt that looked like Matt's that I had never worn. When we all had to take a break for a while, I changed into the Matt outfit, which I had everything for at home (lawl closet cosplay!). Later on, we all got back together and did more of the photoshoot and played lazer tag in cosplay.
Normally I would never cosplay out in public because I'd rather not get the weird looks and laughs (surprisingly there were no laughs), but I did it for the sake of the photoshoot.
The outfit was really simple. I used the wig from my Vanessa outfit, used my old Radical Edward goggles, my striped shirt, jeans, gloves from my Vanessa outfit, and Maya let me borrow her boots. To make the lines on the pants, I tied shoe strings around my legs. Yeah, pretty ghetto, but it worked when I had such little time.
