Winners Announcement

Thank you all for participating in our Rain Dance Contest!
These umbrella designs really awed the judges with their intricacy and beauty~
Here are our wonderful winners!

1st Place


Anniverse Rain Dance contest entry by TBeeBee

Judges' Thoughts

○ This entry is absolutely stunning. It's a very unique and innovative twist on an umbrella design, that suits the Annie very well! I also especially love the extra details showing the functions of the umbrella, as well as its' extra details!

○ I have never seen an umbrella like this this before! I love how both practical, functional and elegant it is. They have clearly thought about how to store this Umbrella away, how to easy carry it around as a handbag when closed, and how it looks like an over-sized bonnet when in use. Blending the traditional aspects together with the modern transparency is impressive, and it does not look off. The transparent bits would provide a beautiful hue on a rainy summer day, and the endorsement is clearly shown to be custom made for this Annie. That this is her umbrella, and hers only.

○ I think this entry is super unique from the rest with its dome-shaped appearance. I also instantly knew which Annie this was at first glance! The soft colors are very appealing alongside the little intricate details is has.

○ This entry is a beautiful match for the Annie it was inspired by. The attention to detail with all the decorations being used in such a way as to honor the blessing while also not taking away from the functionality of the umbrella is truly amazing. The transparent parts being mixed with the traditional elements takes my breath away.

○ I think that Terra's umbrella is incredible! The Annie is instantly recognizable because of the incorporation of her iconic headpiece! On top of that though, the creativity of it really blows me away! There's nothing like it among the other entries, and I've personally never seen an umbrella like this in real life either, but the design just makes so much sense!

Judges' Thoughts

○ This one, definitely! I saw the peony shaped umbrella and immediately thought of Damien. I especially love how it closes like a peony flower, it's very clever! The little gems going around the umbrella and the handle give it an extra touch of detail to bring the design out!

○ I have to go with Tee's! I absolutely adore the incorporation of his necklace onto his umbrella! I knew it could only be one Annie when I saw it! The overall design fits his aesthetic perfectly! Like even though the handle of the umbrella isn't a mimicry of anything on his design, it absolutely belongs with him and fits perfectly as a design element!

○ The way the umbrella closes, in a manner similar to a flower about to bloom, is truly unique. The small detail with the gold chain and the little red gems are a great accent to the white of the umbrella, while also staying true to the colors of the Annie. A beautiful piece.

.: Rain Dance Contest :. Umbrella by BiShakalaka

Judges' Thoughts

○ The long feathers at the rear of the umbrella catch my attention instantly. Not only is it a great way to show of the blessing of the Annie, but is also a beautiful and unique element that helps to add a sense of elegance to the design. The tassels at the front are a great choice as well, adding a veil of sorts between the Annie and others.

○ A beautiful and functional design, that brings some mystery and romace into it, with hanging veils. It gives a sense of privacy and beauty. The design itself looks very practical to use, light weight and with a design that truly fits it's owner. You can certaintely imagine this Annie going down the street with this umbrella, without it looking overwhelming. I adore the handle having the blessing upside down, as well the wings at the top, resembling the Annie's headpiece. One would almost think it's the Annie itself who turned into it.

○ Oh boy, where do I start with this beauty of an umbrella! The veil in the back makes the umbrella have a dainty, delicate appearance! All the jewels hanging off from the rim of it alongside the detailed handle really does bring out the beauty of the design even more! Even the more hidden details inside the umbrella itself works together with the rest of the design to make a perfect harmony~

Honorable Mentions


Rain Dance Contest | Crowned Sorcerer by seucwi

Judges' Thoughts

○ I am so in love with Seu's umbrella design! There really isn't any element of the Annie that didn't get a shout out in the umbrella! The alternating color of the ruffles on the inside of the umbrella, the spiraling gold details, the gem-link chains he's adorned with, the tassels, the stripes, and even the cutout on his pants are all present! The detail in the umbrella topper is a perfect harmony to the Annie's signature hat, and I think the two go beautifully together!

○ The details in this entry are what immediately caught my eye. Not only does this umbrella design represent the Annie it's inspired by gorgeously, but the amount of care put into each and every intricate detail is very clear. It gives off a lovely magical feel that is very very fitting to Anniverse, I feel!
