Ryuk Costume Looks To Be Just the Right Amount of Zany
Ryuk is an interesting character. He’s a death god in Death Note and popular with fans of the series. Ryuk has a striking and crazy looking appearance, and Instructables user Tatterhood did a fantastic job of creating the character’s costume. She even carried around an apple (one of his favorite treats). She made or altered every piece from the latex mask to the bracelets to the clothing. The process she went through to make the leather ensemble is creative:
The leather outfit was made of over 80 pieces of leather patch-worked together. I used an old ill-fitting trenchcoat, bought a few coats from Value Village and was given an old pair of pants from my brother in law. I took them all *completely* apart, so I was left with (mainly) rectangular pieces of leather. Individual pieces were drafted and cut out, given texture with a wood-burning tool and sewn to other pieces. Zippers, grommets, studs and cords adorned the pieces, along with kneepads and a spine (both of which were formed by soaking leather in water and leaving them around light bulbs and an ice cube tray).
