Since 2012, it is a kind of tradition to hold an annual contest to determine Nendoroid Snow Miku’s design with a defined theme. Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Strawberry White Kimono version are products of that contest in the last two years.
Fast-forward to today, and we are facing the contest run for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version and this year’s theme is magical girl and pet – it certainly reminds me of that particular magical girl and her contact-obsessed companion. XD
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?
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
Costume design contest for Snow Miku 2013
Similar to last year, GSC and PIAPRO set up a Costume Design Contest for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2013 version.
While the theme for last year’s costume was jewellery and crystal, this year’s emphasize is sweeteries, such as cakes, candies, and tarts. Obviously, since this is a design for SNOW Miku, those sweeties should have a snow or ice theme embedded into the design.
The contest has started since yesterday, and the deadline has not been announced yet. If you are interested to participate, you might want to see further details on the source links below.
