Costume Information

I wanted to do both a casual cosplay of Light ( the one he wears when hand-cuffed to L ) and his classic trade-mark school uniform. I went for the casual outfit first since I was running low on funds at the time, but I did really want to commission someone to make the beige jacket for me to go with it and make it more distinctive-looking ( the one he wears when talking to Naomi ). Unfortunately I've yet to get myself a jacket, but I would still like to get one eventually ^^

For the casual shirt I bought a plain black v-neck and some white fabric-paint.
I marked out the lines I wanted to paint with masking tape and dabbed it on with a paintbrush. I didn't get the crispest lines in the world but I don't think that they look too bad as long as it's not a really close-up photograph.

My school uniform was commissioned, though I did ask them to change the colour of the trousers to grey since they were making all of their Light trousers in a chocolate brown colour. In the manga colour illustrations they show as grey, though in the anime I found it difficult to tell just what colour they were meant to be due to all the heavy athmospheric lighting, so I decided to go by the original manga.
