Okay, so you’re already cute and extremely confident. Why not try to emulate your favorite Death Note character Misa Amane? Whether it’s cosplaying or everyday life, follow these instructions and you’ll look and act like Misa Misa in no time!
Misa’s clothes are kind of Goth/punk, in a very Japanese way.
The artist said he wanted her to have the Gothic Lolita style, “To be a bit different and unique”. If you don’t know what that is, there is a wikiHow on this website, a Wikipedia page, and you can also find the Gothic Lolita Bible, which is a magazine, in the Graphic novel section of your bookstore. Of course, none of her clothes are exactly Lolita, but they do have some influence. Buying an actual Lolita dress would be a waste of time and money in this case. Clothes that are similar to her style are at Hot Topic and stores like that.
She is short (5′) so she wears platforms and heels a lot.
If you are tall, this may not be for you. (Unless you want to, of course.) And if you cannot walk in these types of shoes, either try to practice and get used to it or just ditch them. Get some combat boots or something of the sort. It’s a good idea to have them look uber punk.
Her hair is blonde,
but do not feel inhibited by that, because in the live-action movie, the actress is a brunette. Her hair is usually up in high pigtails, or half pigtails, and she also has bangs. Her hair length is pretty long, but do not feel inhibited by that, either…
You can always get a wig,
if you really want to be authentic.
Misa’s makeup isn’t too dark; contrasting her clothes.
The basics are a given. (You know, eyeliner,(whatever color) lip-gloss, a little blush) Don’t go too crazy on the makeup. Save that for her clothes.
In the manga,
a lot of her jewelry has crosses on them. In the anime, they are more fleur de lis. Feel free to do either… or both! Or if you’re not cosplaying and you want to adopt this into your own style, find your own signature jewelry!
Contrasting her clothes, Misa is not uber-Goth/punk.
She smiles and stuff. Don’t be afraid to laugh loudly. Misa is loud, and rude sometimes! Speak your mind.

Misa is VERY loyal to Light.
So if you have a boyfriend, do the same. Be faithful. But in the beginning, when she contacts Kira, she is border lining stalker-esque. Don’t do this. Do not stalk people who catch your interest or you admire. You could get a restraining order.
Misa is confident!
She doesn’t walk with her head down. She isn’t afraid of anyone. Don’t fear yourself or anyone else. Just be who you are and shun all who tell you otherwise!
Misa wears A LOT of accessories, be it chains, skulls, necklaces, or zippers; just be sure not to overdo it…
