Yeah. This is a bunch of Ramonas for some kind of Scott Pilgrim contest I guess.

I wanted to colour them traditionally - but there was no time to, like, mess it up. So here are my lame ps-skills  

~*~*GRAND PRIZE WINNER*~*~

Here’s the GRAND PRIZE WINNER!

At first I felt like it was almost unfair for these to win! Look at how great these all are… I have never heard of Hanna K from Sweden before but now I want to see everything she ever does.

She did six Ramonas (plus a few more after!) and not only are they all cute and unique, they all look like something Ramona would have worn in the book (but didn’t). The colors are bright and poppy and fun and every outfit is delightful.

Congrats Hanna K!!! Please send me an email so I can send your prize! (bryan@radiomaru.com)

That wraps up the contest!!! I’M SO GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED AND I’M REALLY SORRY IF I COULDN’T GIVE YOU A PRIZE OR HIGHLIGHT YOUR ENTRY HERE — I LOVE EVERYONE :0 :0 :0 :0 :0 :0 :0

These are all too cute - I think my favorite redesigns are the top blue x black outfit and the mint x coral ensemble.

CONTEST. #RamonaStyle

radiomaru:

This is a tumblr drawing contest. For fun.

(If you can’t/don’t draw, I apologize, but I just want to try this out; I’ll hold a broader contest in a few months when Scott Pilgrim Color Edition Volume 3 is coming out.)

imageHOW TO ENTER:

1. Draw Ramona Flowers in your own style (ie don’t copy “scott pilgrim style”, but if your style is similar, that’s fine)

2. Put her in an outfit of your own invention (ie not one from the books or movie; it can be real-life clothes; it doesn’t have to be completely made-up; you just have to put her in something I haven’t seen her in before)

3. (OPTIONAL) Give her a unique hairstyle!

4. BUT… she has to be recognizable as Ramona Flowers! If I don’t recognize her, you will be disqualified!! (tips: her choker, star bag, goggles, her general sense of style, etc

5. Draw it, put it on your tumblr, tag it! TAG: #RamonaStyle

RULES:

This has to be a drawing — 2D hand-drawn artwork. Lines and/or shapes and/or colors. No sculpture, collage, photo manipulation, essays, animation, 3D renderings, etc. Paint is fine. Computer drawings are fine.

You have to have your own tumblr account and use it to post your entry.

EDITED TO ADD: You must draw a full length portrait of Ramona Flowers from head to toe. An “outfit” in this case includes shoes (or socks, bare feet, whatever; show her full body).

The contest is open to anyone in the world ages 13 and up.

Enter as many times as you want.

PRIZES:

I want to give out a few Scott Pilgrim Volume 2 Evil Editions (the Lucas Lee cover) since I never got to do a contest around the release of that book. I also have a bunch of other random stuff lying around, like super cool Japanese and other foreign editions of the books, miscellaneous swag, random original drawings, etc. I will put together a cute personal prize pack for 3 WINNERS.

Winners will be chosen entirely at my discretion and based on style, originality, fun factor, and Ramona-ness.

DEADLINE:

One week from today - let’s call it THE DAWN OF WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16th in case you’re on the other side of the planet from me. Final winners will be posted on FRIDAY, JANUARY 18th.

REMINDER:

I am running this contest all by myself while also attending to the rest of my super-busy life, so bear that in mind. I know a lot of people will instantly ask me a bunch of questions, but I want you to try and take the information in this post and try to proceed based on what you already know! If you’re confused about anything, make up your own rules!!!

And…… have fun!!!

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 08.20.12
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving community of costuming that exists today and cosplay communities such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. In honor of the many fans who’ve displayed excellence in the mastery of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into our own super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Check out this week’s round-up of the Best Cosplay Ever on ComicsAlliance, featuring Robin, Fushigi Yuugi, Jesse Quick, Ramona Flowers (above), and more!
P.S. I’ve been a bit backtracked on my cross-posts of BCE over the past month, but here are all of the previous installments of BCE(TW):

Sex Bob-omb VS The Twins T-shirt, $10, TeeFury [today only!]

This shirt is here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff! Check out this amazing t-shirt design that Bamboota created, inspired by the epic battle of the bands scene in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (complete with double dragons and a giant fluorescent yeti).

Pick up this shirt for $10 before midnight tonight on TeeFury!

Ramona Flowers Subspace Coin Purse, by Neighborhood Story, $10.

Just the thing to carry all of your post-fight coin rewards!

It’s 3.35” in diameter and 1.25” deep and it can hold ALMOST as many coins as you see in the second image (unfortunately I don’t know how to sew subspace, otherwise it would be endless.) It’s fully lined with durable hot pink stretch denim, and closes with an (almost) matching turquoise zipper. ^_^

More color combinations are coming soon, but for now, this baby is ready to ship!

And for those of you who are looking to further capture Ramona Flowers’ swagger, Jamie is also selling an impeccably accurate custom-made Ramona Flowers jacket (as seen on the cover of Scott Pilgrim vs. The Universe).
