A Mello costume is guaranteed to be a hit among millennial cosplayers who experienced the wonder that is Death Note.

Mello is the secondary antagonist of the second half of the Death Note series. As the older of L’s two successors raised at Wammy’s House, he has a major inferiority complex.

He is a genius with extraordinary intellect, but the very concept of only being the second most intelligent person eats away at him.

Because of this, he verges on immorality during his obsession with taking down Kira and is shown to be ready to do “whatever it takes”.

His badass punk Mafia look truly says a lot about his character, because he joins forces with Rod Ross, a leading Mafiosi, after going to America.


You’ll Need:

  1. Leather Vest
  2. Golden Yellow Wig
  3. Black Leather Pants
  4. Cross Necklace
  5. Wallet Chain
  6. Leather Gloves
  7. White Belt
  8. Black Boots

DIY Mello Death Note Cosplay Guide

Mello may not be the most beloved Mastermind of Death Note, but he became popular due to his bad-boy aesthetic.

His jet-black clothes and choice of accessories became a style beloved by fans for all the things they conveyed underneath.

Start off with Slim-fit Black Leather Pants, coupled with a Silver Chain on the side. Purchase a Sleeveless Black Vest with a Zipper upfront for the torso.

Next, buy a glossy pair of Black Gloves for your hand. Follow up with a pair of Black Boots with Buckle Straps running across.

Find yourself a thin White Belt for the pants and a Silver Cross Necklace with Red Beads to adorn your neck.

Finally, you will need a Short Blonde Bob Wig for his hair, bright Golden Yellow in color.

About Mello From Death Note

Mello’s real name is Mihael Keehl, a child who was raised at Watari’s orphanage for gifted children in Winchester, England. He possesses an excellent mind but sometimes he lets emotions get in the way.

After L passes away, he and Near are asked to work together to capture the criminal Kira. Mello refuses due to the sheer number of differences between them and sets off to handle the case on his own.

Mello is not purely evil though, because he showed genuine care for Matt’s well-being and even apologized to Soichiro Yagami for his fatal wounds. Additionally, he works very hard for everything, unlike Near who is naturally gifted.


What is the most famous quote from Mello Death Note?

1. “No matter what I have to do, I will get it before Near.”

2. “I’ll live my own way.”

3. “I’ll kill anyone who gets in my way. I’ll be number one.”
