Was looking around for Disney Store Halloween 2010 plush because I just love "Miracle Magical Halloween," and I happened across these images... It's coming up on four months since the contest and three months since the prizes were awarded, so I thought I'd just go ahead and post them before we get to Sweet Duffy 2012.
These are the UniBEARsity towels that Wondering won for herself and her friend the linguistics expert in our postcard contest! I hope the linguistics expert did get one of them, too.
This was our first real contest, and several Duffeteers participated although one winner totally dominated the competition. Well, I guess there are kind of two winners, since Wondering had help from her linguist friend who doesn't post here. I thought everyone else might still be curious what exactly the prize was. I also just wanted to post photos so that folks know that when I say there will be prizes, I am true to my word.
I was wrong about one thing, though. These are totally still available at the Disney Store, but at 300 pts each, it takes a bit of time and money to spend the ￥30,000 you need to actually get a set, plus the annual ￥500 membership fee for the Fantamiliar card. Normally the prize would have been more Duffy-related; I had actually planned to make something myself. But I knew from our chats and her Wish Lists that Wondering likes UniBEARsity, so I thought that such a limited, Japan-only, not-for-sale item would be a total surprise and a real treasure for her. It was also a major goal for me to find something that both she and her friend would be able to share, but that would not just be exactly the same thing. And since I didn't know if the friend was actually a serious Duffy/Disney fan or not, I figured at least a towel is something she might use, and that way she won't argue with Wondering too much over who gets Mocha or who gets Pudding! I was so excited when I learned about this promotion. I really thought I had found the perfect prize for the person who won, even though I had to buy a few extra things to earn enough Fantimiliar points to get them! Anyway, here's what they look like:
There, finally, I can check something of my Wunderlist now!^^
