Include in your comment below a way for folks to contact you - this will be published in the book along with your photos - can be twitter, facebook or mail address.

A few weeks ago, submissions for the Mirai Suenaga Fanart was opened and the response was amazing! Folks from all over the world have been submitting a load of Mirai Suenaga fanart to be featured in the Worldwide Otaku Report.
The Worldwide Otaku Report connects you with the anime industry and I want to highlight the talents of folks around the world who consume and enjoy Japanese Pop Culture. The book is being published by Ascii Media Works who brought us titles like Toradora, Oreimo, Railgun and more.
This time round, I'm featuring the talents of cosplayers as our mascot character Mirai Suenaga. All you need you to do is upload your selection of photos of yourself as Mirai Suenaga cosplay to World Cosplay or Deviantart (preferably both) and we will choose some to be featured in the book.
Ascii Media Works are not paying you for your work however so if you think thats bad then probably best if you do not submit anything. If however, you are a long term thinker and see this as a good opportunity to get your work out infront of many eyeballs (in particular the eyeballs of the anime industry) then submit away!
If you would like to submit photos of a cosplay that you have already done, make sure the full res is uploaded and leave a comment below with a link to the photo (This applies even to the cosplayers who have been featured in the Mirai Suenaga Cosplay page). We cant print anything in the book without your permission.
Look forward to your entries!
Below are some of the recent Mirai Suenaga cosplays we've spotted from around the world!
If you need reference materials for making your costumes, you can also find it at the end of this post.

Update! Have tweaked the eyes so that Mirai does not look so...yandere ^^; Got this back from Good Smile this morning - this is what we are going to base the final product on.
There are many more parts that come with Mirai - all will be painted by end of next week. Then we will take the Release Photos for pre-order. Mirai Nendoroid will be featured in many of the Japanese hobby mags too. We plan to take her to events around the world too - one soon in Taiwan and AFA Indonesia, AFA Singapore etc.
And here are the sort of instructions that I create for the folks at Good Smile production team to follow. Just confirmed today is that Mirai will come with the "M-stand" - the same one that comes with Nendoroid Popura - that stand was specially developed by Max Factory - "M" for "Max Factory" but I like that stand a lot and makes it easier to pose so "M" for "Mirai" it is!
Everything below from initial announcement with the old face.
Announcing the Mirai Suenaga Nendoroid! Have waited many moons for this to happen but started to get that tingling feeling back in November - the Mirai Suenaga Weiss Schwartz happened shortly after and now the decoration master is ready just over half a year later.
Mirai Nendoroid was first displayed at the Wonfes last weekend to an audience of over 40,000 for the one day event - which was only 7 hours long.
Mirai Nendoroid will come with a pack of 1/8 scale sized pack of Moekana - thats the full set of 50 cards! This stand shows the actual size of the cards - perfect for doll owners too!
And for folks who dont know what Moekana is - its the Japanese learning series that I released with Good Smile Company that changes the way we learn the lingo. I've just received another order from Good Smile Company - that means Moekana is in its 3rd print run!
Read more about Moekana and find out how to get hold of yours.
Mirai also comes with her sidekick Retrokyu.
Retrokyu transforms into Mirai's Retrograde Suit - the transformation sequence illustrations recently added to his page.
*Aiming* for pre this Summer with a release this December - hopefully in time for Comic Fiesta.
Mirai-chan next to Wakana Sakai of Tari Tari.
Later that day at the Good Smile Company offices for the live broadcast.
Retrokyu will come with his own stand.
While I left the production of Mirai Figma to GSC - Mirai Nendoroid is the first figure where I worked on the development. I worked on the face parts, Itasha and mini moekana.
The eyes that you see on the Mirai Nendoroid will be a bit darker on the final version so that the pupils dont stand out too much.
Mirai's hairclip is supposed to be white but decided that it looks better in silver for the product.
Face parts will be compatible with all Nendoroids so that you can mix n match!
Another Mirai-fan spotted.
So cute I want to eat.
With Yoshimi at the GSC offices after the broadcast.
Will be updating this post and bumping it to the top when photos from the other parts come in!
But before I leave, I want to thank all of you for making this happen - thank you for your continued support!
The idyllic land of the Sylvanian Families is always expanding, and this year sees several new buildings and vehicles arrive.
Recently I’ve been challenging myself to go walking up and down mountains for no apparent reason but to see what the view is like on top. At first I scheduled the hikes for the days when my son stays with … Continue reading →
