I’ve recently been getting into Death Note – I’d heard about it before, but as I was never really much of an anime fan I never gave it much thought. I happened to be really bored one night and decided to watch the first few episodes online, and was hooked within minutes! I’ve since watched the entire series and plan on reading the manga as well; my boyfriend noticed how much I liked the series and even got me a stuffed Ryuk & a replica of the Death Note on my birthday (I’ve since augmented this small collection with a stuffed L and Near, and hope to get the Misa and Light ones as well in the near future)! So when I saw that the internet alterna girl legend Francesca Dani had some photo sets of her doing some really well-done Misa Amane cosplay, I freaked out a little bit and decided that I just HAD to share it. I mean, even if you’re not a Death Note fan (and if you’re not, you really should give it a shot), you can appreciate a hot blonde dressed up in a kick-ass gothic lolita outfit, right? And for those of you who are already on the Misa-Misa bandwagon, this will probably make your week! So enjoy, and yes… the Death Note that Francesca has in these photos is the exact same one that I have – awesome, right?
