With Halloween around the corner, we dove into our closets to find quick and easy costumes to please all manner of costume and cosplay enthusiasts! Our focus today is on the elusive L from the popular anime Death Note!
This Halloween costume can be pulled from most closets, but just in case you don’t have a white shirt or blue jeans, we went ahead and located some for you on the cheap at Target. The main staples of this costume are L’s spiky black hair and the under eye shadows that indicate insomnia. For the wig we chose , and if you don’t have a friend or family member to borrow makeup from, simply stick with Target and find a black and gray matte eyeshadow – sans sparklies.
Want to take your L costume to the next level? Find a black leather diary and write “Death Note” on it. You can also use one of L’s many defining traits, such as crouching in chairs or only eating sweets and see who among you is an anime fan! You might make a new friend, something which L is certainly lacking! Maybe you’ll even run into someone dressed up as Misa Amane!
