The time has finally came! Snow Miku 2019 and her rabbit partner Yukine design submissions are now open! We’re getting a brand new theme for this year, that is, “Princess” in the image of Hokkaido’s Snow. Now is your chance to take on this once-in-a-year opportunity to have your very own designs featured in the next Snow Miku festival! The collaboration opens a little early compare to last year’s. Is it perhaps getting earlier with each year?
