We've been on the hunt across cyberspace
for Light Yagami cosplayers, willing to share their secrets via a questionnaire written just for this purpose.
The latest to provide some insight into
her cosplay of Kira is the USA's
- who also kindly posed in costume with a banner, welcoming you all to this Month of Kira on Death Note News; as seen in the announcement of its launch.
Keep up with Cayanna Carma's Kira cosplay and all the rest on Facebook. Now here is she with her experience and tips on cosplaying Kira.
Cayanna Carma on Creating a Kira Cosplay
Do you/have you cosplayed Kira now or in the past?
Yes - currently.
Have you any anecdotes about your experiences cosplaying Light?
Scared the daylights out of a lot of people when asking for a signature.
It was honestly very fun, because I helped a cosplay group "Squad Six" and worked in a group of other Death Note characters.
Cosplaying as Light Yagami, I got a chance to play Chess with an L cosplayer and I won! 😏
How would you go about creating a costume for Light Yagami?
I draft, so I normally see things in my head and make it really.
What clothing and/or props do you feel are essential Light Yagami costume items?
Bag of chips, Death Note, apple, flip phone and handcuffs.
Is there more to cosplaying Kira than the outfit? (Look/behaviour etc.)
Oh yes~ I had to keep that small smirk for the entire time while in cosplay. Also writing violently and trimming my nails down to look like I chew them.
What's your professional opinion about ready-made Light Yagami outfits, such as those in the Death Note News Cosplay Store? Any other pieces in there decent enough for a Kira cosplay? (Be honest!)
I honestly enjoy people who buy cosplay or Make it. As long as you have fun in the cosplay I am all for any cosplay.
If not anything there, where would YOU source items to cosplay Light Yagami?
I guess you could go to a clothing store or a yard sell and hope you get lucky
Any last tips for anyone reading, who wishes to create their Kira cosplay from scratch?
Have fun building it.
Would you like to have a go at answering these questions on your own behalf?
