So, apparently Crunchyroll is doing a contest to help coincide with having their first simulcast film, the Wake Up Girls movie that was broadcast and screened starting last week.
From the forum post:
To celebrate the movie as being the FIRST simulcast movie on Crunchyroll, we're doing a costume design contest for Wake Up, Girls!
If you guys have already watched the movie, then you know the girls don't have any sort of stage outfits yet, so it's up to YOU GUYS to design them some cute and creative costumes!
We'll be picking 3 winners to receive these awesome SIGNED posters with the autographs of the real life Wake Up, Girls! voice actresses!
Even more exciting, the judges for the winners of the outfits are none other than the Wake Up, Girls! themselves! That's right! We'll be sending the best designs over to Japan for the real Wake Up, Girls! idols to decide the top three they like the most! "
Is Yamakan's production team so fucked that they can't even come up with clothing designs for the wugs?
What are you talking about? The WUG already have an official outfit.
Here's my design.
FUCK THIS GAY SHOW
That's a school uniform costume and not really a solid stage outfit. What they're in need of is something like the Forever Star or Vampire Girl outfit from Idolm@ster.
Terrible choice, that covers too much.
It needs to be a smaller, lewder swimsuit.
There's also this from the mobage.
I'm sure we'll get to see it later in the show.
Wait, they actually think disgusting Western pigs can come up with cute designs? Yamakan, what the fuck are you thinking?
what horrible production schedule is this if you have not enough designers and no designs for anything? What the hell is Yamakan doing?
It has no actual influence, it's just a lame promotion.
You guys do realize they're not going to actually use the winners right?
I mean you guys can't all be THIS retarded right?
OP's link is the only source posted so far, and it doesn't explicitly suggest that they won't use them, so no, we're not retarded.
From how long it takes to produce a single episode of anime to how long the contest needs to be completed, do you honestly still think that there's enough time to get the designs in? If you do then please kill yourself right now.
I'll bite. I enjoy designing outfits and I've followed both Idolm@ster and AKB0048 pretty closely, but I need a theme.
Anyone got suggestions for a theme?
Just two days ago, it was revealed that Yamakan's team was still trying to wrap up episode 3 of the anime.
The human reproductive cycle.
Wake Up, Girls! = breakfast foods
something loosely based on the cosmic and funny costume with the blinking light strips.
>please kill yourself right now.
Holy Jesus, calm your edge.
I want to ask how slutty the outfits can be, but it's too much effort to register on CR just for that.
Someone should copy an existing outfit and submit it and watch it win.
I said please, motherfucker.
>Even more exciting, the judges for the winners of the outfits are none other than the Wake Up, Girls! themselves! That's right! We'll be sending the best designs over to Japan for the real Wake Up, Girls! idols to decide the top three they like the most!
Implying that they will even get to see those, generally it's all done by the publisher or agent.
>Agent: "Hey girls, here are some sketches by gaijin-sans"
>Seiyuu (without turning around): "That's nice"
>Passerby: "WHITO PIGGU GO HOMU!"
Here's a rough sketch for an idea. I'm thinking of a cream-and-chocolate color scheme, or something brighter, like hot pink/black/white/navy blue.
