Nendoroid Snow Miku: Blue Parfait Style

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Blue Parfait Style

Since its announcement a few weeks ago, some creative folks have started submitting their design to PIAPRO in order to participate for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 Design Contest.

Among the current 200+ submissions, Blue Parfait Style is my fave entry so far, personally. It features twirl twintails, a beautiful maid dress (+ cap), as well as a tea set as additional accessories. The design has such a classic European feel, which is one of my favorite theme. ^^

Well, which one is your favorite entry, Nendonesian? Kindly see all the entries by visiting the source link below. XD
