Snow Miku 2014 Design Contest!

| Good Smile Company, Translated Post • Tags: ,

Piapro and Good Smile Company are working together once again to collect fan designs for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2014, one of which will become the official design for next year! The theme this year is ‘Magical Girl’, but the design must also keep the snowy, Winter theme. The design for Snow Miku’s outfit must also include a magical staff, as no magical girl is complete without her trusty staff! We look forward to seeing everyone’s lovely design ideas!

However the outfit is not the only thing we’re looking for this time! We’re also looking for the design of Magical Girl Snow Miku’s pet! The pet should also have a snowy, crystal or Winter theme, and should be based on an animal found in Hokkaido. We hope to see many cute and creative pets for Snow Miku 2014!

    Mamitan! I’m planning on entering but I have a couple of other questions:
    1. How many entries are allowed per contestant?
    2. Can I submit only a Miku entry and not a pet entry?

    That’s it!

    Thanks in advance for answering :D

      You can submit as many entries as you like, you don’t have to submit a pet. You can submit either or or both.

      as long as it’s still in the same overall design (as in chibi form and fits the template provided) I don’t see why not.

    They should choose three winners: outfit, pet and magic-item.
    There are some designs from which I only like the magic-item, and in others I only like the outfit hehe…
    I guess it’ll be a very hard decision…

    BTW, is there a size limit for the image?

    A question: I went to the piapro website to create an account and it was all Japanese, can I translate it and get an account and enter next year.(sorry, I just became interested in entering for 2017 design) and also is there a certain age limit?

    Questions about the contest( which is why I came here), is the competition only opened to Japanese or international? Is there an age limit? And lastly, can I translate the piapro website so that I can create an account to enter for 2017! (Sorry I just needed to confirm things, and I would love to enter!)
