About Light Yagami Costume

Light Yagami is a genius student who is well-liked by his peers and his family members. He also has a strong sense of justice like his father. This strong sense of justice is the reason why he wanted to rid the world of criminals after he stumbled upon the Death Note. What started out as a quest for justice, though, became much more sinister, as Light started to view himself as a god because of the notebook’s power.

This ruthlessness made some viewers consider Light as the antagonist of the series instead of the protagonist. Despite his evil nature, you will never really see it in his appearance. Light is a handsome and well-dressed individual that looks more like a model citizen than a ruthless killer. If you look at the cosplay photos, you can see that dressing up as Light Yagami is like transforming into the perfect individual that can do no wrong.
