Some of you might remember I, YoonAddicting, did a birthday project for Iwata Karen last year together with another fan over on Stage48.
Well, it’s that time again and we are looking for your submissions! So if you are interested please read on.
Last year we didn’t really put a lot of guidelines into place, which lead to some quite lengthy messages (up to 3 A4 pages :O), so this year we have a few simple guidelines:
Messages should be maximum be within 600-800 characters in English, if you are writing in another language, estimate it to be roughly the same.
Messages can be submitted in English, Japanese, German, Finnish and Swedish.
All messages, except handwritten ones, will be translated into Japanese.
Handwritten messages and drawings must be scanned before submission.
Please include your country and real name, so we can show Karen that she has fans all over the world!
As the official rules state, please do not include any contact info in your message/fan art. If you do, it will be removed.
Ikuchan will be having her seitansai on this coming Jan 18 of next year, and with that in mind, we’ve decided to make a birthday message collection project!
There hasn’t really been that much plan for this project yet since it’s just today when we have decided to make one, so please bear with potential lack of info, & don’t hesitate to provide ideas or ask questions.
To be honest, we’re actually kind of short in time for this project given that her seitansai is just less than a month away from now.
So right now, our initial plan is to make a poster which will be framed and can be hanged on the wall. The poster will contain all our messages. The design for the poster will be handled by @wahoho, but anyone who are willing to help may do so.
Typed messages only
Character limit: 140 characters (might still get adjusted, most likely for increase)
Language: English or Japanese
Include your name and country (excluded in the character limit)
Send your message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dec 29 – checkpoint (hopefully, at least more than half of the messages should be sent already by this time so that the editor can already proceed with pre-designing)
Jan 2 – deadline
Jan 3 – design and preview
Jan 4 – edit and review
Jan 5 – order for printing
Jan 18 – seitansai
Few adjustments or changes might still be made since we’re still at the planning stage right now.
Hope you all are enjoy the Christmas spirit at the moment!
