I'm cosplaying as L from Death Note.
And I know that there are like....a million L cosplayers already, BUT THIS ISN'T FOR A CON.
Actually, me and a buddy of mine want to cosplay L just for the hell of it. XD
For the purpose of confusing people at school the day of Halloween...
For making people at the mall give us weird looks, yes?
That's why we're doing it.
Now, an L cosplay is SUPER EASY.
Big long sleeved white shirt, blue jeans...
That's pretty much it.
But I still have a few questions.
I need to find a good wig.
L's hairstyle can probably be achieved with a wig with a few layers in it, right?
Use gel spray to hold the hair in place....flip strands here and there...It shouldn't be too hard to style it.
But I just need to find a good wig.
Now, I can't cut hair or anything like that...So I'd like to find a nice black wig that has a good style and everything.
Can anyone show me a place that sells good wigs?
Or a place that sells a type of wig that I'm looking for? :[
Or, just give me any tips in finding a wig! :'D
I've heard that human hair wigs are easier to style than synthetic wigs..
But then I've heard that they fade......
I've also heard that synthetic wigs hold their style better...
But I've seen a lot of REALLY BAD LOOKING synthetic wigs...
So can anyone point me in a good direction? :/
Help me out here? I've never bought a wig. XD

I found this, but like I said. I KNOW NOTHING. About wigs. ;3
Please to be helping me? :'D
My second question...
Me and my buddy are both cosplaying L for the hell of it.
Yes. TWO L's. TWICE THE AWESOMNESS, AMIRITE?
Anyways. Even though we're both gonna be L, I thought it'd be cute to chain us together like Light and L... XD
Can anyone show me a place that sells cuffs like that?
They're probably quite easy to find, but I'm too lazy to look.
So any help there? XD
My next quesiton is....about L and the issue of shoes.
I'm all for wearing ratty tennis shoes like L does....
But I'd much rather go barefoot.
That's a problem. There is NO WAY I'm walking around completely barefoot.
I don't mind the fact that people would give me looks..
But it's....the ground is DIRTY.
And I might step on something and hurt myself... XD
So I was wondering, is there anyway to fix this?
I was thinking...
I'm a dancer, and we have to wear these things on the bottom of our feet to protect them, and they help us slide around a bit, yes?
Well, they're pretty much invisible. They go on the bottom of our feet, and connect to our toes (and I've seen some that wrap around your feet like a bandage ) but I've never seen one for the entire foot.
I was thinking I could do something like that?
I was even contemplating on getting the sole of a shoe / a gel sole pad, and bandaging it to my foot, then using make up or something to cover it up a little (like...I forget what it is, but don't some girls who do crosplaying do cosplays where they wear open jackets that reveal bare chests and stuff? I think they use some kind of paint or something to make it look like the color of their skintone? I'd liek to try and use that...).
Do you guys think that'd work? >>
Or do you have any better ideas? :3
And my last and final question.
Makeup. It's not a big deal really, but we'd like to make ourselves look like L as much as possible.
Light foundation, to give us a pale look...
Eyeliner on our lower lids to make it look like we're sleep deprived. XD
But is there anything else we really need to do?
I know L has some PRETTY FREAKIN' HUGE EYES.
And I already have those (seriously, my aunt called me E.T. when I was first born....photo to prove it? BIG EYES
, AND MORE BIG EYES
But the other girl who's cosplaying as L with me doesn't have big eyes. Is there any way to make her eyes look bigger and rounder?
I mean, I know you can't make her eyes appear to be HUGE, but I bet there's a way to make her eyes look a little bigger, right? XD
Also.....is there anything we'd really need to do to make us look...more...L-like?
Like, put on makeup to give the effect that we have a slightly different facial shape?
Or should we just go the way we are ( or do I need to show pictures of ourselves to give you an idea on your answer? XD ).
This post is a lot freakin' longer than I originally intended... XD
Thank you in advance to those who help? :3
