The voting result

The voting result

The final design for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2013 version design contest has been announced. As you can see in the pic above, among the four finalists, the winner is the 4th one:

Design Finalist #4 for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013

Design Finalist #4 for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013

IMHO, hoodie + white mage-like costume + unique hairstyle for Miku = WIN. I cannot wait to see how the real Nendoroid would look like later on. ^^

Well, what do you think about the voting result, Nendonesian? Do you think the winner deserve it or there is other design(s) caught your attention even more? XD

Note: My favorite design didn’t even make it to the top 4, but I am still happy with the vote result. XD

(Thanks for the news tip, Stella!)

    I’m not quite pleased with the result. I think the other 3 designs were closer to the contest specifications. I mean…I can see a hint of winter in this design but pastry?? Where?!

  2. TakoTalk says:

    I do like the winning design, but I wanted #1 to win.

  3. Ruciferia says:

    I think it looks like a Yuki Onna rather than a White-Mage

    I’m very happy this design one. The wedding kimono is beautiful. There needs to be more kimono nendoroids!

    I am not a huge Miku fan but I love this design I would buy this version just for the style of kimon she looks awesome and there is not to many kimono nendos I will buy her gladly

  6. ._. i are dissapoint. i was hoping that the winner would be more winter and sweets themed seeing as how that was the THEME OF THE CONTEST ugh… its cute but it is a little disappointing to me that it has to be the nendoroid for winter miku 2013, im not saying it wont look good but i just wish one of the other had won for this particular miku theme i guess.. when i saw the post on mikatans blog and saw the 4 finalists i was like .. i have a bad feeling the 4 is gonna win.. and it did XD its cute still so congrats to the winner and congrats to the other finalists. hope next years winter miku will look good with my other winter mikus.

      She looks warmer than the other three, kinda resembles a yuki onna and her whole head looks like a Japanese sweet.
      I think it fits the theme more than well enough.

    I’m disappointed, it’s not copypaste enough.

  8. Minzuki says:

    None of my favorites made it into the finals but I’m glad 4 won.It had the most unique design and I’ve always wanted to have a Miku nendoroid with a different hair style.1 was cute,2 was ok but it didn’t really have anything to do with sweets besides being a maid and having a straw in her headset,and 3 looks too much like the winter coat version.

    Snow maiden miku epic winn!

  10. Yamaneko says:

    I’m glad that this one won 🙂 Other look too plain. Maybe I will consider getting it.

  11. Shien says:

    I’m glad I went and voted, because the final result was so close! #4 was my favourite, so I’m ecstatic and will definitely be getting her, but I would have been happy if #1 or #3 won as well. #2 just looked too similar to the previous designs for my taste.

    I think the winning Miku is an original take on the theme. They kept the original Miku’s hair colouration, her hood is a giant mochi for the ‘dessert’, the kimono and hairstyle makes her look lovely and elegant and she still has snowflake patterns. Plus, ichigo daifuku is fun to make and ridiculously tasty. *o*

    I wonder what accessories she’ll come with? She still needs her headphones. I want a tiny moon rabbit companion or mound of mochi! Or maybe they could continue the strawberry theme.

  12. For me it doesn’t really look like ‘snow’ miku, doesn’t snow miku need to like ‘merge’/ ‘connect’ with snow? I mean, I don’t really like it. But it’s unique let’s just see what will heppen.

  13. Bulletsmith says:

    I kind of like the kimono style of the 4th design. But yeah, my fav design is the 2nd one. Too bad it did not pass the vote ^^;

  14. arachni42 says:

    I love it! It fits the theme but is very cute and creative.

  15. hoshiko says:

    I absolutely love the design! I might just get my first Miku when it comes out later. Can’t wait!

  16. […] seems that the annual Snow Miku festival at Sapporo, Japan has begun as various pics and design of Snow Miku 2013 is starting to appear […]
