Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m currently at the NicoNico offices, preparing for today’s broadcast!

Today we decide the 2016 Snow Miku Design!!!

A big thank you to everyone who send in entries!! ヽ(・ω・´(`・ω・´)ノ`・ω・)ノ

The theme this time around is…
Winter Sports in Hokkaido! 

This theme allowed for some really original ideas and some lovely designs to come though! We also once again had a separate contest for Snow Miku’s good friend Rabbit Yukine! Tonight we find out which Miku-san will become our Snow Miku for yext uear! I can’t wait! (●´ω`●)

Yesterday, I posted all the contenders up on my Twitter account! There are a total of four designs for Miku and four designs for Rabbit Yukine to choose from! These were chosen by both Crypton and GSC together… but the final choice between these is in your hands now!! (`・ω・´)

 – 2016 Nendoroid Snow Miku Outfit Candidates-

1: SNOW MIKU 2016 / Saine

My design for the 2016 Snow Miku outfit! I decided on a rather stylish design that would look great with a snowboard or skis!

Her knitted hat has holes on the sides that allow her twintails to pop out! (I picture her snowboard or skis having a piano key pattern!


2: Owly Owl Snow Miku 2016 / Kotatsu Otogi



3: Snow Miku 2016 / Yunii

This was the first color scheme that came to mind for Winter Sports! My friend didn’t seem very convinced though… hopefully I can prove him wrong!

It’s an outfit kind of made in the image of a polar bear but still with a touch of class! The scarf includes gloves at the ends!

04: Snow Miku / Niboshi 

A design that anyone will recognize as Snow Miku with one quick look! I took things back to the classics a bit, but with some special new touches. She is wearing short pants allowing her to move about easier in the snow, It’s an outfit that would work great for snowboarding, skiing, skating…. anything!
