A fashion contest was run for the original release of Paradise Kiss, too, & the winner's design was featured (very briefly) in one of the later episodes, & sketches by the winner & some of the other entrants were shown after the end credits in the photo sequence. Here is a link to some entries from the original contest, along w/ some commentary (in Japanese, of course).

I have a question: Is there a limit on how many entries a person may submit?

& another one: The Rules state that all entries must be in jpeg format in the 1st line, but that they must be gif, jpeg, tiff, or png in the 2nd line. Which one is correct?

Animax Asia also held a fashion design contest recently for the premier of its Paradise Kiss dub. In fact, the voting ended yesterday, but you can view the finalists' designs here.

The winner will be declared on Saturday on a fashion show (in the Philippines) with their designs used in the catwalk.

Here's a preview of the fashion show.

And the winners (the designers and models)

All styles are acceptable, but we recommend focusing on something gothic lolita, lolita, or high fashion.

What's the difference between Gothic Lolita and Lolita fashion? I had always assumed they were just two different words for the same thing.

Oh, this is cool. I think I'll come up with something and enter this. I doubt that I have a good chance of winning, but I'd probably be mad at myself if I completely passed up a contest like this since I love fashion design. And I've been kinda wanting to see Paradise Kiss.

Gothic Lolita is pretty much the same as Lolita, except that its more, well, gothy. Picture Alice in Wonderland as Lolita... now picture Alice in Wonderland in black as Gothic Lolita.

Why Parakiss all of a sudden? Did the manga end or something?

The manga has been done for a long time. This is for the anime. The first DVD is being released on December 19.

What is the criteria for judging? What is more important, the actual design or the quality of the artwork?

Will the ParaKiss contest be handled in a similar manner like Le Portrait de Petite Cossette Contest or even the Kyo Kara Maoh Fanart Contest? (considering the contestes involve Geneon)

Plus, about when will winners be announced? Is there an approximate date to look forward to?

1. The contest will be judged on a combination of design/creativity, and execution. Obviously, if you have a wicked gorgeous idea... but it's a blob of crayons on paper, your idea probably won't come through as well. Anime smile But don't worry about it. A great design is a great design, no matter what. I'd rather see creativity.

2. Yes, they have to be girls. I mean, they can be boys wearing girls' clothes, but it's a contest for women's fashion. Smile

3. The contest will be handled somewhat similarly to the Cossette contest. The winners will be selected by both Geneon and ANN staff. I'd say..... people would know ~ a week after the contest ends.

4. There's a million and a half kinds of Lolita (sweet lolita, wa-lolita, elegant goth lolita, etc, etc, etc), but don't worry about it. We're not really going to favor any particular style over another.

5. You can send in any of the picture formats listed (beyond just JPEG).


Hope that answers everything! Have fun with the contest. Anime smile
