|L was a really simple costume to do, but sooooo much fun! The hardest part was styling the wig, but I think I did a good job. I loved running around being cute and with no shoes on all day ^^ Although I gots a bit dirtie XP|
I learned that sometimes the easiest costumes reap the biggest rewards, in terms of attention, pics and how you feel about it. I wrote a skit inspired by the work of Animosity Cosplay (a cosplay group in the US who did the Naruto Algorithm March and Akatsuki the Musical on youtube) involving L, Raito and Misa and a whole host of songbytes, and we won the Audience Wild Card award on the saturday. We had the BEST time doing that and it was incredible to have so many people cheering for us on stage, thank you to everyone who did!
L is an amesome character, I love all his little quirks, and (being a bit of a yaoi-head, episode 25's little fanservice moment XD Cosplaying as him was one of the most fun things I have ever done and I recommend a Death Note cosplay to anyone starting out and not sure what to cosplay as.
