Do you remember last year there was a meme going around of a little girl dressed as Spirited Away’s No-Face, the terrifying Miyazalki created creature who devours everything around you in a desperate attempt to be liked. Well, that little girl is back, with another terrifying costume from the annals of Japanese pop culture-dom — she went dressed as the Shimigami, Ryuk. Now, descriptions of anime can be thick as molasses sometimes, but this one, I promise, is simple! Ryuk is a death demon who mocks the protagonist of Death Note as he gives him the notebook wherein when a name is written a person dies. A terrifying and grim figure to say the least, and keeping completely on theme for the girl whose No-Face costume made someone CRY last year.
Even more fun? Her little sister dressed up as L — the detective who was on the hunt for the owner of the Death Note! Check out the comparison!
Awww! Spooky spooky awww!
We love it. What do you think of this little girl’s bad ass Death Note costume? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
