Cosplayer Emmaraldcos has stunned fans of the anime Death Note on Instagram with a gorgeous recreation of up-and-coming model Misa Amane, capturing her gothic yet adorable aesthetic.

The manga Death Note pulled in a new wave of popularity after it was adapted into an anime in 2006. Its captivating thriller-like plot and morally gray characters made for fascinating viewing, its main characters L and Light providing a gripping personality duality.

But the primary female protagonist Misa Amane’s vibrant personality and stunning outfits have given cosplayers plenty of inspiration for recreating Kira’s number one fan.

In the show, Misa is an aspiring model, with a by and large cheerful personality but a horrifying past, all of which make for an interesting character that captivated fans.

The 2006 anime is one of the most popular series in Japan.

One such fan is cosplayer Emmaraldcos, who set out to recreate one of Misa’s more gothic looks, putting a shinigami-spin on the usually innocent looking girl.

Her hair looks as if it has just been pulled from the animation itself, with the sleek blonde locks framing her face and blunt bangs that help Emulate Misa’s face shape exactly, topped off with a black ribbon.

Her layered necklaces and spiked choker give the perfect edge to the outgoing Misa, looking perfectly in place next to the fishnet gloves that cover her forearms, and make her black and green nail polish pop.

Her makeup is an artwork in and of itself, with the saturated blush on her nose and under her eyes illuminating that anime-like cuteness, but with the perfectly blended black eyeshadow balancing the look out and keeping its gothic roots.

Emmaraldcos puts her own unique spin on the eyeliner too, with intricate shapes hanging from the bottom lid that give her a certain otherworldly quality.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is just around the corner, and a talented fan of the show has shown off their incredible take on the Survey Corps’ Mikasa Ackerman, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.

Since its debut back in 2013, fans across the globe have been enamored with the story of Eren Yeager and Mikasa, who become refugees when one of the giant humanoid creatures known as Titans breached the walls that protected humanity and killed Eren’s mother.

Determined to destroy the creatures who killed his family, Eren vowed to join the Scout Regiment and head out beyond the walls to kill every Titan he saw, and free humanity from the threat for good. Mikasa, who made a vow as a child to protect him always after he saved her life, quickly followed him, and the inseparable pair joined the war together.

Talented with a sword in her hand, and an expert at swinging through towns or forests using her ODM gear, Mikasa is one of the most feared and dangerous members of the Scouts. Despite her personality sometimes leading others to think she is cold or standoffish, Mikasa is a true fan-favorite, thanks to her incredible skill and her undying love for Eren. She’s so popular in fact, that she has become the most cosplayed character from the series.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in the popular anime.

Cosplayer ‘jeisuzukii‘ brought the character to life in stunning detail, capturing the Scout’s black hair perfectly, and making sure to wear the iconic red scarf that she is rarely seen without, and has become a staple of any good Mikasa cosplay.

She is also wearing the recognizable brown leather jacket that anyone who is part of the Survey Corps wears, complete with the Scouts’ recognizable logo, a pair of white and blue wings known as the ‘Wings of Freedom,’ a symbol of hope that they make escape the tyranny of the Titans.

The cosplay is truly stunning and looks like it was lifted straight out of the anime. If a live-action Attack on Titan was ever commissioned, it would be no surprise if it looked exactly like this.
