Our favorite outtake from our nth Death Note photoshoot. Inspired by The Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover, but we weren't really recreating it. Otherwise there wouldn't be five of us and L would have been Paul McCartney with no shoes. Haha!
And yeah, I guess Near and L aren't supposed to have shoes BUT we were in a commercial area and we couldn't risk them stepping on something on the road and possibly hurting their feet whenever we had to run back to the sidewalk when cars would pass by. And don't forget... L wears shoes when he's out - like in the university and while playing tennis.
It took us so many tries to get this shot right... Erving says the focus was insanely difficult. Even though we needed it to be fast, autofocus just wouldn't work so he was on full manual. So we had to keep posing and running away when cars would drive past, while constantly watching out for guards that might apprehend us for taking photos! Hahaha!
El as Mikami Teru myself as Yagami Light China as Amane Misa Jessie as Near Sibey as L (The other 7 or so other cast members are not in the photo, sorry!)

EDIT! So many people are asking about it so here is the location info: This was taken somewhere around Bonifacio High Street, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig here in the Philippines.
SECOND EDIT! I'm sorry we can't provide a print of this photo. It's out of respect for Tsugumi Ohba. The cosplay and photos are our own work, but it wouldn't be fair to profit off another person's intellectual property.
