Bleach: Deathberry by behindinfinity Bleach: Deathberry by behindinfinity
Deathberry is a nickname Kubo Tite sometimes uses to refer to Ichigo in chapter titles. It's probably the combination of words that describe parts of Ichigo's character. The word "death" comes from death god, since he is after all a shinigami representative. And "berry" comes from strawberry. Although his name is written with the characters ichi ( 一 ) as in "one" and go ( 護 ) from "guardian", his name meaning "one who protects", it's pronounced the same way as イチゴ, the Japanese word for "strawberry" (a fact he is sometimes teased about). On a related tangent, "ichigo" can also mean 'one' and 'five' if the "go" is written as 五. That's why he has a sign that says "15" on his bedroom door, and he sometimes wears shirts with the number 15.

As with the nickname Deathberry, this shot was meant to depict two sides of his identity - the seemingly regular teenage boy (whom Kubo Tite sometimes dresses in the craziest outfits in his illustrations) with hair as striking as his personality, and the Hollow he struggles to suppress inside him.


Eighth of the Bleach Casual Artbook-Inspired Cosplay Series Whose Title Is Far Too Long Come On Don't Take Me Too Seriously About The Title. More info on this photoshoot :bulletred:here:bulletred:

Happy Halloween! Watch out for those Hollows!

Note: The effect on my Hollow eye is editing for now, but I'm considering ordering a pair of sclera contacts from [link] (if you need them as well, just look through the site for the Scarecrow lenses) for when I seriously consider cosplaying Hollow Ichigo/Shirosaki, which is a scary thought. I'll be needing to save up for those contacts if I decide to go through with it, haha.

Muajajaja..How funny..Onion That's really good cosplay. It's hard to find good Ichigo ones since it's really hard to pull off the orange hair. Awesome! :D

Are you trying to confuse me?! I hate when I don't know whether a cosplayer is a female or male one. Because if you're a girl, then you are an awesome crossplayer, and if you're a boy, you're still awesome. xD
