Ryuk (Death Note) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween 2019

Costumet Team

When you watch him, it’s easy to forget that Ryuk is a cunning and unapologetically ambivalent Shinigami. After all, he loves video games, is shy around girls, and is unhealthily obsessed with apples. But this grim reaper doesn’t actually care about the people around him. He thinks of death as entertainment and will cut ties with you as soon as you lose your interesting qualities.

Aside from his adorably misleading qualities, not much can be said about Ryuk’s appearance. He definitely looks like someone you want to be careful around. Ryuk wears an all-black ensemble complete with black feathers. He has a white grayish skin tone and big yellow eyes. Here’s everything you need to look like Ryuk.
