Ichigo Ellysea (France): Ichigo started cosplaying many years ago, when wigs couldn’t be found so easily, buying stuff on internet wasn’t even possible and tutorials barely existed. She mostly makes her favorite kind of costumes: detailed, shiny fabric pieces, but she also takes great pleasure in crafting and especially painting armors. She also loves going on stage with friends and trying to put out the best skit she can, because that’s what helped her fight her shyness.
This great cosplay procrastinators finds every excuse she can to do the things she loves: she loves video games, used to read a lot of manga (she even was a manga translator for a few years), likes SF, fantasy & comics. She has been a costumer for a costume rental store during a few years also, position she gained by showing what cosplay had taught her, proving that even without the correct schooling, you can achieve what you want if you put your mind into it.
Ichigo has represented France during the very first World Cosplay Summit finals and, since then, she has won her fair share of contests she keeps following her path in the cosplay world.
Ichigo Ellysea will be giving a workshop at FACTS Spring Edition 2017. The schedule will be online soon!
