I’m always on the lookout for cosplay that goes beyond the usual mainstays, so when I saw someone dressed as Ryuk, a shinigami from Death Note, I had to speak with the cosplayer to find out why they chose to cosplay from that manga/anime. She caught the eyes of the judges, too, because she won 2nd place in the Amateur category.

By Eric Mesa

Eric was an avid comic reader in the late 1990s. He then took a hiatus from comic reading until 2011 when he dove head-first back into comics. Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
