Event Competition Winners

Art Competition
Theme: Anime/Manga Halloween Character Design

🌟1st place – Patricia Cruz

Judges comment: Amongst all the amazing character designs this year, Patricia’s KING PUMPKIN of the Pump-kingdom is really captivating in its design and the thought the went into it! King pumpkin screams out the theme of Halloween all throw-out the story, design and colour. While having a spooky appearance, its back story gave us a heart-warming feel! We would be thrilled to have some soup from king pumpkin.

🌟2nd place – Jae-Eun Park

Judges comment: What we like about SAM is that he’s unlike any other reaper we have ever seen. He has a job that in unheard of yet so important in the Halloween time which ties to the theme very well. We can thank SAM for the fun activities such as pumpkin carving and delicious pumpkin spice lattes: smile and of course his goodest of boys, Hain.

🌟3rd place – Rebekah Purchase

Judges comment: It took a moment to be WOWed by Rebekah’s Character, but is probably its winning point. The level of scariness in the character beyond its facade would have someone screaming in terror while also having quite the elegant appearance. We hadn’t realized how scary she was until we saw her eyes underneath her face. In this case, we would have fallen victim over her charm!
