This month’s contest celebrates the traditional March 3rd Japanese holiday of Hinamatsuri, or Girls’ Day. The contest is to design and color a pattern for Ivy’s kimono! Download the line art below—you only need to complete the kimono section of the picture to enter. The pattern can be traditional Japanese or completely original.

Any medium is accepted for this contest.


The Japanese word next to Ivy on the artwork is Hina-matsuri: ひなまつり

“Hina” means “chicks” or “small like a chick” and “matsuri” means festival. In Japan, families with girls have a set of small dolls called “hina-ningyou” (hina dolls) which they display during March.

The actual festival is on March 3rd. They also call it “Girls' Day” as this festival celebrates girls and offers wishes for health and good fortune. On this day it’s common for girls to wear kimono and eat colorful sweets made of rice.

The prize is a new 4-piece set of Pink Multiliners. The winner will be selected March 16th.
