I cried, literal tears, when I figured out April 14th was the cutoff, not the deadline. I have worked over twelve hours on my peice and now it will not be entered in the contest. I wish this would have been made a little clearer beforehand!

I didn't realize that April 14th was the voting day...not the deadline. I feel so discouraged...all that work!


Hey, you still have plenty of time to get started on next year's mascot!

Ahh!!! Three hours until zero hour! I'm so freaking nervous....I hope that I win, but at the same time there were so many mascots I would be happy to have win. Gah!

[EDIT]

Oh. My. Gawd. Hour and a half till votes close. Is it totally wrong that I'm staying up for this? I'm just excited to find out who wins!

NDKumori1: Blue Beauty Kumoriko is our winner and new mascot

Hot on her tail was second place winner MisuKumori4: Our Misterious Kumoriko

And closely followed by our third place winner ALKumori14: Magical Kumoriko

I love the new banner, don't get me wrong, but I have a few thoughts.

I don't see how the three winners are supposed to be the girl next door that lives in Oregon that has her trusty umbrella in case it rains.

I guess the voters decided on looks over what we were going for.

Aw well. . . .guess there's next years mascot contest.

I've already started on next year's mascot. I just got so bored, and I enjoyed this years drawing so much that I thought, hey, why not? And I chucked the last one out so fast that it turned out sloppily anyway. Bah. I'm just bored is all. Are the rules going to be the same for next year's contest as well or has anyone cared to even think that far ahead?

And at the same time, how are they *not* what you just described? Honestly, not everyone knows what Oregon looks like, or what next door neighbor girls are like either. Infact some of the entrants are probably not even from Oregon and will be attending Kumoricon for their first time ever. I'm not sure what you were expecting out of the contest but...maybe enter yourself if you didn't next time =) And show us what you think would work better!

Totally.  I personally find your comment uber- condescending.  Somebody is MY neighbour, so as their girl next door I'm the anime and game addicted cosplay spaz.  So however you think the entries don't suit your taste, tough, really.  And I'm glad quality won.  I'd be upset if something poorly drawn, but close to whatever you think girl next door means won.

neo's girl won and she looks pretty normal to me.  She's got on warm clothes and boots and she's happy, even if it happens to be raining.

How is that not "girl next door in OR?"

just because kumori girl isn't in jeans, a t-shirt, and sandals doesn't make her not be kumori girl.  Hell, I've seen girls dress almost identically to that in my area and still go outside with an umbrella, LOL

Rules for next year will be similar but not "exactly" the same. There will be a "rules" page to review once the link gets all fixed and pretty.

Our trial run went pretty well for being the first time, but the system showed some not so little flaws and will be revamping for next year's contest.

Just like the fan art room it will have continued voting while last minute submissions can still be recieved. Submissions for the 2007 mascot will be accepted from May 1st 2006 up untill September 4th. Voting will begin on September 1st and end on Sept 4th 2006 right after closing ceramonies for 2006.

Almost finished with my next adult mascot. Are the rules page going to be up soon? I've just been working on it for fun, so I'm not going to be terribly broken up about it if the submission I've been working on won't be accepted, but I do want to start on next year's mascot sometime soon. Just wondering when the page is going to be up...

Its a kumori thing... the mascot is based on our symbol... the oval with the umbrella girl but we did have one person turn in a kumori couple this year which I thought was pretty cool.

I've finished the adult version of my next entry to the mascot contest. It can be found here. Currently working on the chibi.

I like to call this "Revenge of the Rubber Ducky". It's the same girl I entered for this year, only a year later. Longer hair, older face, updated clothes. Same umbrella and ducky and cloud.

It's taking soo long to draw these, but I'm glad that I have the time to do it for this next contest. This last contest I did everything in a rush and even then it was late.  :?
