We cannot wait to see what director Adam Wingard (You’re Next) does with his adaptation of the manga series Death Note. But while we wait, let’s check out a truly awesome bit of cosplay!
The central character of Death Note is of course Ryuk, and cosplayer Grellish so impressively turned himself into the Shinigami that we just had to share. Photographed by Keyaroscuro, the full body costume makes a pretty good case for the character being practically brought to the screen, though we assume he’ll be entirely computer-generated in Wingard’s film.
Willem Dafoe is voicing the character in the live-action adaptation.
But enough yapping. Check out the badass cosplay below!
In Death Note…
A student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone begins a crusade against evil in order to rule the world as a benevolent human god. Then a deadly game of cat and mouse begins when a reclusive detective begins to track down the young man, attempting to end his reign of terror once and for all.
