    Me and a few other anime fans are making a Death Note movie trailer for school. Looking for advice on making a Ryuk costume, would prefer that it cost as little as possible. Please help

    Moved to conventions/cosplay

    But.... Honestly; in order to self make a medium quality cosplay you're looking at $200+ USD in materials especially if you do not have a lot of the basic materials on hand already not to mention the required labor? Do you have any sewing skills at all?

    Even shopping for clothes in similar in appearance so you don't have to sew will come at a price (especially the boots which are usually $60+) Then you have the make-up and the feather portion/accents of the costume. You're looking at a minimal $100 for the costume even going the 'cheap' low budget way which is a lot for a school project........

    I guess you can wear black shirt and pants, paint your face grey, carry an apple and call it a day since it's just that... a simple school project... No need to put all your effort and money on something you'll likely only wear once.

    You could probably use a cheap foam for the spikey stuff. And I would youtube some videos for his facepaint because I've seen that done really well. Op-shops can be a great place to start....
    But like @blueangel06661 said, making cosplay tends to get very expensive, very quickly.

    Try watching the live action version of Death Note (2 movies, three if you count L's last case). You may be able to get ideas from the movies, although I think the live action Ryuk may have been a digital creation.

    Thanks to everyone who responded to the thread! I think the link to the makeup tutorial will be especially helpful since i have a friend with all the materials at hand to do it who can probably do it. Also thanks to anyone who gave suggestions on ideas for making the costume itself i.e using crafting foam for the spiky things on his shoulders. Any future suggestions and ideas are appreciated, so if you have any please share

    After you get your Ryuk look on, take a photo and post it. I am sure I am not the only one whose curiosity you touched.
