LICHA JERNIA

 

Introduce yourself 

Hello I’m Licha Jernia; a 21 years old cosplaying for about 5 years now. My current character is called Kistune Blood. Fabric and needlework are my strongholds I also love to work with foam work, I’m a student and I cosplay professionally. I also work on commission to make costumes on order, I have more than 100 costumes in my portfolio and will continue to make more. I enjoy the detailing of work required in cosplays and would love to make a significant mark in this field.

 

What character would you cosplay as if you win the ICC 2020?

I will cosplay as Angela from Sakizou’s art.

 

Why do you deserve to win the FAN FAVOURITE AWARD AT  ICC? 

Many deserving cosplayers often don’t make it to the limelight due to lack of exposure in terms of costume making but due to lack of opportunity, I was one of them but with grit and dedication, I was able to take part in many national and international competitions. Things changed for the better this year when I won the DCC  2019 qualifier. My focus is on getting the cosplays as accurate as possible, research is a major part of my process, even the slightest related background helps in the making of a costume, Cosplay for me is not just about having fun, I take it pretty seriously and have constantly improved myself over these years. This journey will continue to do so and I would be glad to represent my cosplay community locally and internationally to make everyone proud who believed in me and have supported me.
