Death Note: Walk This Way

Our favorite outtake from our nth Death Note photoshoot. :lol: Inspired by The Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover, but we weren't really recreating it. Otherwise there wouldn't be five of us and L would have been Paul McCartney with no shoes. Haha!

And yeah, I guess Near and L aren't supposed to have shoes BUT we were in a commercial area and we couldn't risk them stepping on something on the road and possibly hurting their feet whenever we had to run back to the sidewalk when cars would pass by. And don't forget... L wears shoes when he's out - like in the university and while playing tennis.

It took us so many tries to get this shot right... Erving says the focus was insanely difficult. Even though we needed it to be fast, autofocus just wouldn't work so he was on full manual. So we had to keep posing and running away when cars would drive past, while constantly watching out for guards that might apprehend us for taking photos! Hahaha!

:iconbehindinfinity: myself as Yagami Light
:iconsnowpeachdrop: China as Amane Misa
:icondollgoddess: Jessie as Near
:iconsiberianclaws: Sibey as L
(The other 7 or so other cast members are not in the photo, sorry!)

:camera: photography by Erving Go

:icongrinclub: EDIT! So many people are asking about it so here is the location info: This was taken somewhere around Bonifacio High Street, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig here in the Philippines.

:icondesudesuplz: SECOND EDIT! I'm sorry we can't provide a print of this photo. It's out of respect for Tsugumi Ohba. The cosplay and photos are our own work, but it wouldn't be fair to profit off another person's intellectual property.

An interesting capture. Reminded of older times;
'Walk This Way' by Aerosmith.…
It also made me think the 'Abbey Road' Album cover by the Beatles.

Lawful you can not market it as official material and Tsunami Ohba is not a struggling artist at all. It is your photograph as well. Same with celebrities in the open.

Well, if we start with the logo of the anime
that probably is a reminder  of the quality of the entire series.
Those 3 fonts inclined, destroy the complete composition of the logo,
looks like the thing is gonna crumble at any moment...
And about this peace of work, I can't see any originality on this,
people crossing a street, imitating The Beatles and that legendary album cover,
This representation has been made for years, some with better results than others,
I don't know, for me this is nothing to be amazed for...
Just my opinion, I'm probably wrong, like usual...
Ladies and gentlemen...

Shinigami Road! :8Bclap: :8Bclap: :8Bclap: :8Bclap: :8Bclap:

Well it sucks that you dont like it, but this cosplay is pretty good. Don't just call a cosplay bad because you don't like the anime.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl
