Misa from Deathnote?

Hello everyone This is my cosplay of Misa from Deathnote. It's my...3rd costume I think that I've made, and since I don't have a sewing machine all the parts I had to make myself were handsewn =_=;;; Additionally this costume was actually thrown together kind of last minute, and I'd like to improve it so it's better for the next convention, so any suggestions/critique would be appreciated.


I do read the deathnote series, but I've never quite paid that much attention to Misa, and since I was rushed I didn't study the reference pictures very well, so there may be things that I'm missing. @_@;; (on that note, if anyone has good reference pictures of Misa in her schoolgirl outfit that would really help. The only ones I managed to find were photos of other cosplayers, but that's usually not the most reliable reference...)

Wow, you make a great Misa, this costume is very well done. My one nit pick is that I think that the wig should be longer, and Misa has no need for apples.

I can't reall see the costume, since your turned to the side and bending over and not facing the camara, but your face shots are very nice.

Hmmm.....looks good to me. My only observation is this: I think Misa's Deathnote has a different design on it. The desing you've got is deffinitely Light's, but I feel like I've seen her book with a different cover. You might want to double-check to be sure. That's all.

Misa has a different book then Light. The writing is messier and doesn't look to be English. As stated before, she has no need for apples...Unless Rem loves them too and we just don't see her scarfing them down.
The hair should be a little longer. If you were using your own hair, I'd say it's perfect, but with wigs, there isn't as much excuse since you can always add extensions.

oohhh, thanks for all your responses everyone.

ilikeyaoi >> since Raito said all shinigami love apples I thought maybe misa would carry them around too XD; although thank you! The wig I used was actually longer but it was curling in at the ends, if I straightened it out it would probably be Misa's hair length, but I wasn't very successful X_x I bought it online (off cosworx actually), so I wasn't even sure how long it would really be and what kind of color it would be, so... D: in the picture it looked longer. >_<

kakashi>> you're right D: I added more pics now, thanks >_<!!

Partisan>> really? damn, I should really fix that then XD;; although if I remember correctly did Misa and raito switch deathnotes at one point?! I didn't know Misa's was different though, thanks!! <33

EvilAuthor >> this was my first cosplay using a wig, so it was kind of hard to tell what length it was from the website, and I don't know how to cut a longer wig/add extensions. It'd help if you have some tips on that...

If that was your first time with a wig, then you did really good with your first attempt. Finding a good wig is very tricky which is why I try to use my own hair when I can.
Since you apparently have a Light cosplayer to run around with, if you can't find [or are unable to make] Misa's Death Note, when someone asks you can just say you're holding on to your boyfriend's notebook while he talks to his scary friend with the pointy teeth.

Very good Misa costume. I like it a lot. Here are some pictures I took of Misa's death note. It's lettering it different from Light/Raito's and its REALLY beat up. The poor book look like it's been dropped about three hundred times and the pages look waterlogged. Sorry the picture aren't very good, but it's the best I could pull up with my camara. I don't have a scaner. XP

Yea. The book is trashed. I sugjest buying a book, 'accidently' dropping it in some tea or something [yellow pages that way...makes it look older], running it over with your car, and then covering it up in dirt for a little while...Not too long or you'll forget where it is. Once the book looks like it's been to hell and back, then put the writing on with white[or silver] sharpy or craft paint.
For my Misa cosplay, I have everything except the book. Until mine in made, I'm telling people I gave my book to Light for safe keeping

Thumbs up Improving the Misa look

I'd say put a tie in place of that chunky bow.
more goth-looking clothing and jewelry would work perfect as well for misa(you can pick some up at your local Hot Topic)
the stockings are cute, but make sure to take out a razor and put punk cuts in them , sealing them with a safety pin[heehee, i do this to mine on a normal day ^^]
because, well, misa tries to look hardcore(doesnt work though xD)
