One talented cosplayer has blown fans of popular anime Death Note away with her dark yet adorable take on polarizing wannabe model, Misa Amane.

Death Note took the anime world by storm when it was adapted from its manga form in 2006, the psychological thriller with its supernatural elements gripping fans across the world with its addictive story and fascinating characters.

The story follows the battle of wits between Light Yagami, a school prodigy with a newfound ability to kill people at will via the titular Death Note, and L, a mysterious police detective with a mind as brilliant as Light’s.

One key player in the tale of Light and L is Misa Amane. The up-and-coming model appears to be a stock character at first glance, but there is far more to her than meets the eye, with a dark past and a twisted psyche that manifests itself more and more as the story progresses.

Death Note’s Misa Amane has become an iconic character for casual fans and cosplayers alike.

Cosplayer Chiyakicos tapped into that complexity perfectly, utilizing Misa’s darker aesthetic via both her costume and makeup to construct an incredible real-life Misa.

Her outfit is on point, the lace fingerless gloves that cover her forearm beautifully contrast her skin, and match well with the lace bodice. The statement choker with copper skulls and bold red gemstones flawlessly blend the line between sweet and dark.

Her hair is a stunning white blonde with loose beachy waves, tied into two tiny pigtails at the crown of her head to reflect Misa’s original look.

And most striking is her flawless makeup, saturated blood red eyeshadow and matching lips are beautifully applied, the color tying in with the choker and red nail polish and bringing the whole look together. The contrasting whites, reds and blacks give it a stunning animated feel.

Commenters on the series of photos called it “beautiful,” “stunning,” and “the best Misa cosplay yet,” and with 1500 likes on the images combined, its clearly a been a hit among Death Note fans.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
