Death Note Cosplay: Beyond: Genius VS Freak by Redustrial-Ruin Death Note Cosplay: Beyond: Genius VS Freak by Redustrial-Ruin
These are re-uploads I held off on for a while. Not sure why. Oh, my little BB-bug. How I've missed you :heart:


I looked a little different as B back then. Before I made a failed attempt to fix my wig a certain way.. and before I was set on a certain way of doing the make-up. I think I might actually like this make-up better, though, now that I look at it.

I said that if i came back as B ever again that I would try to look exactly the same, but I don't know if I can make that promise anymore. I am itching to try new things and know there is room for improvement. Then again, I have never stuck to just one thing when it comes to B, so I guess it won't be terribly different. Maybe, just.. better? Hopefully.
I'm looking to make burn scars a regular thing.

anyways.. I think these pictures were very defining of me back in the day. (listen to me, like it was 10 years ago or some shit) Pff, so yeah. The one on the left was called "B's Identity Crisis", taken at Anime Boston 2008. It was the first time I was ever on the front page of DA and my first popular B picture, before Personal Styles. Nearly a year before, I believe. The right was from when I was new to cosplaying B and feeling him out. I actually took that on Valentines Day 2008. It was more difficult for me to develop him back then because as fascinated as I was by him, I only had so much to go on because the book hadn't been released here just yet. I find these pictures charming, though. God, I miss Beyond. I guess I'll keep repeating myself until I up and cosplay him again! lol. The possibilities..

But I digress. I've rambled on enough.
I'll leave it on one last note. These were originally uploaded separately with different editing. I had the originals still, and since I've learned a lot more since back then I tried to fix them. Did what I could. I put them both together because when placed side by side all I could think of was that quote, and I dug it. Enjoy the pictures, everyone. :heart: And as always, Jam is appreciated.

actually it is B aka Beyond Birthday, as the title and artist comments say.

My assumption is that most L groups accept B deviations because of how closely tied they are and because of the fact that B mimics L's appearance.

I got mine from Borders when it was first released :( So I figure you can probably only find it online now. You might be able to find it at a book store if they have a manga section.

:icontrollfaceplz: that was my face when I read about the possible scars XD any who... interesting and I hope you do return one day as B v.v to me you were the best I had ever seen on youtubez and I couldn't help but be a little sad when you stopped. Though I understand you had your reasons and I won't judge nor push/shove/other but yeah... even as early B you looked pretty sweet and I'm wondering what you used for "blood" on your shirt? (It's for my Halloween costume this year XD) Love to see what else your hiding hope to see it too!
