An incredibly talented cosplayer has flexed their costume skills on both TikTok and Instagram with their real-life recreation of L from the anime Death Note, securing hundreds of thousands of likes on TikTok alone.

Death Note was a hugely popular anime when it originally ran from 2006 to 2007, but to this day remains an entertaining show for new and old audiences alike thanks to its fascinating cast of characters and gripping plot.

The show follows the story of a young man named Light Yagami who finds a notebook that allows him to kill people simply by writing their names, aiming to rid the world of all evil with his new found powers.

L’s unique habits and incredible mind have made him a hugely popular character among fans, and many have taken up the challenge of trying to cosplay the intriguing detective, including cospoxia.
