This Misa Amane cosplay is the girliest thing I have ever done. If you read a few of my posts here, I think you'll know that I prefer cosplaying male characters. But what made me do Misa is the love for her personality.
Misa Amane is from Death Note. Her character in the story is a famous model who fell in love with Kira: Light Yagami. She was dubbed the second Kira because she also possessed a Death Note of her own.
She did anything Light asked her to do just to make him love her. I believe all of us, in one way or the other, will do anything for the one we love.
What I love about her is under that bubbly personality and foolish love for Kira, Misa is unexpectedly an intelligent girl. At first, I actually assumed that she's a bit dumb because her stupid love for Kira and his mission. But then, we learn that she was actually careful on her actions and plans - not a quality we expect from someone who loves a man she never met.
Anyway, setting that aside, here is my Misa Amane cosplay.
The photo above is from the O-Bon event. I was the one who created my top from a long-sleeved shirt. The sleeves was turned into arm warmers. It is my first handmade costume and I am pretty much proud of it.
I did not have a decent shoot for this cosplay. The following photos are taken by my mom.
This time I have a decent pair of arm blades. The one I wore in the O-Bon was made out of hard plastic folders. They were not very durable so I asked a props maker to make a pair.
It's a little bit difficult to move in this cosplay. It was a challenge for me during the event. But it was all worth it when I won best in costume. Yaay!
I want to cosplay Misa Amane again. I have a different version ready.
All I need is an event or a Death Note shoot. Exciting! :)
