dh and i are going to a local anime con today.  it's the first time ever that we go to something like that.
and the only manga/anime i am currently obsessed with is DeathNote.  wasn't really feeling like cosplaying, but i had to wear something fun.

so i made this from a nice pink t-shirt that i got in the mystery shirt clearance from MAKE magazine's store.

it was from makerfaire and had a cute robot on it (just like the top left corner of this image, which is actually from a great tutorial about making a scarf from t-shirts)

but it's really not my favorite look for a robot so i made an L fangirl shirt out of it.  i used a print-out from the anime (same image as in this page of the manga) to help me cut out the t-shirt fabric appliqués.  i use the iron-on sticky film (i'm blanking on the name of it right now) and then sew over it after ironing.

later i sewed down the offwhite layer, and added his eyes again in white. i sewed down the black but you can't really see it (plus, amazingly, i think i am starting to be able to control my sewing machine a bit better).

requisite dorky action shot:

i also have another shirt that has a velvet E on it in a similar font to the famous L (an E can be cut to look like an L) and i might appliqué that on the back, or something, later.  it happens to have the same pink background!

the quote is on velcro because i would like to be able to make him say different things.  the character tends to say some memorable stuff, that is fun to parody.

Love the shirt - you did a great job on him. Love L!
And what a fantastic idea to make the text bubble changeable.

thank you for the nice comments!  i hope you guys will try making something like this.  it's not that hard, really (the iron-on stuff makes it easy) ... the sewing part is a little hard but i'm below-average at sewing.

i have added a new photo(s) after i got impatient and fixed some things this morning.

ETA: really shocked  Shocked  at the con i had like 10 girls compliment me for this shirt.  they were mostly surprised i made it myself.   Grin Grin Grin

This is really cool, and it looks so professional! I've linked my non-crafty friend to it so he can fawn over it Cheesy
