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

Costume design contest for Snow Miku 2013

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.

What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
