VIVI FOR VICTORY!

Vivi himself lost against Pokemon Trainer Red (which I think is quite silly), but congratulations to the artist who sent in the “Vivi for Victory” poster!  It’s cute, clever, and deserving of its victory, I think.

Well done!

 

Let the “Vote For Vivi” Contest Begin (EDITED: NEW ENTRY)!

Hey Y’all,

I’ve received two entries for the “Vote for Vivi” contest.  One of these two lucky contestants is going to walk away with a copy of The Art of Final Fantasy IX!  To vote, simply comment either here or on the Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter pages (or email your vote to me) as to which one you like best!

Entry A:  How do you prove that you exist?

Entry B:  Black Mage

Entry C:  Vote Vivi  (Yeah, I added a picture past the deadline.  Sue me.)

In the interest of fairness, I will not be participating, merely counting the votes.  Votes will be accepted until Vivi’s next Character Battle begins, on September 8th.

Best of luck to all contestants!  Let’s get this started!

Campaign Poster Contest Update/Vivi Cosplay

Hey Y’all,

In my efforts to receive entries for the “Vivi Campaign Poster Contest”, I have received…  well, no entries (as of yet).  As such, I thought I’d sweeten the deal a little bit – the winner of the contest will receive a copy of “The Art of Final Fantasy IX”, a Yoshitaka Amano art book!

So you know, it’ll probably be used. But I’ll get a really nice used one. Cuz new, it’s $70, and I can’t afford that :p

So, that’s exciting.  Email me your submissions by 11:59 pm Wednesday, 9/4 (or later, I’m not that picky), and the voting can begin!  (You can also submit via Facebook or Twitter).

In other news, one of my readers sent along some great pictures of their Vivi cosplay that they did recently.  Thanks for sending the pics along – the costume is great! 😀

If only there were awesome places in Vermont where I could go cosplay Vivi, that’d be awesome…  Ah well, guess I gotta go to Montreal or Boston :/

Anyway, yeah, have a super day, guys and gals!  The contest is still very much alive!
