|Time Taken :||An afternoon|
|I know this is a really over done cosplay, but I really like L's character so I joined the masses xD|
(I wore this costume at a small Tokyopop ReCon at Borders on Teesside)
I chose to make this costume because it was simple and I already had L's hair style. His character is easily recognized by most anime and manga fans, probably because of his dress sense and lack of shoes.
The overall making of the costume was easy since I had some blue jeans that looked like his, and I found a cheap white shirt in the local supermarket.
I didn't particularly want to wear a wig for this cosplay because, as I said before, I had my hair styled and coloured the same as the character's. This was most likely the thing that took the most time as I had to get my hair to spike up as much as L's does.
I bought a plain notebook and covered it with black and the Death Note logo (and 'Light Yagami' written inside) with some of the rules as seen in the manga and anime.
I learnt that you don't need to spend too much money while making a costume, it's easier to buy something cheap that looks similar and then modify it to your needs.
When I wore it I had quite a few people looking at me and wondering wether I am male or female (I'm female), and while I was there it was fun talking to other L cosplayers about how they made theirs etc.
