ahhhh so many cute entries @o@ hopefully I'll have time to submit one more, but for now have this:



I was surprised that many people decided to stick with normal narukos! After doing a bit of research and watching many videos from this year's Yosakoi Soran in Hokkaido, I decided to go with a fan prop; however there were so many possibilities to choose from (fan, drums, clappers, swords, etc.) Watching yosakoi groups dance is amazing! Their energy is infectious and I so want to go to a festival if I ever visit Japan <3_<3 Their split second costume changes and the amount of props they can carry actually make my jaw drop. If I have time I'll submit another design for a normal naruko. Good luck all!!

@Forcize: Whoa, you really went the extra mile! Beautiful art, and beautiful Narukos. O^O

@DK: I AM LOVING THESE CREATIVE ANIMAL NARUKOS seriously that's cute too.

@Harokiti: My pleasure. Yours is still my favorite. Kitty eating little fishies omiguh I can't even
Just
*wants*

@Starlogic: Haha, thank you so much! I'm glad you like them. I realized a little late I didn't align the holes off-kilter from each other enough on those feathers for the covering/uncovering of holes to be visualized with the drawn example though. I leave it up to the judge's imaginations. quq

Seriously considering making myself the wing narukos just to test how melodic of a beat you can get going with the added sound versatility. What kind of wood do we even use?!

I made the naruko myself, painted, glued, glittered, beaded, and I based it on naru! very simple but bold, like a blooming sakura

This Naruko was inspired by one of my favorite characters, Yaya Sasame. Who is voiced by Kaya Okuno from Wake Up Girls.
Like i said this Naruko is inspired by Yaya and therefore it's a representation of what i see in her.

Yaya is bit Stubborn but she cares for her friends and thats why this Naruko Contains The favorite Flowers of all the Yosakoi Club members and not just hers.
The Flowers are-
Naru - Cherry Blossom
Hana - Bluestar
Yaya - Rose
Tami - Lily
Machi - Sunflower

This Naruko is dressed in Yaya's colors,
The main Naruko Frame has her Coat's color.
The Beaters are painted with her hair color tones.
This Naruko has tiny decorating flowers since this club seems to love them.

All in All this is a small representation of a giant character .

There's a story behind this one. I bought all the materials to make a Naruko, but my family was on vacation, so we were busy. Then I had to move back to college, and the materials were left behind. My dad who is a fantastic artist was going to help out, but it never became a reality...

So here have a badly drawn cloud naruko complete with lightning bolt!

@dongaloli: fan is a good choice to dance yosakoi, there some team like Honiya or Torakku use fan, even some team use drum (SHIN 2010), umbrella (Mugen 2014, SHIN 2013), shamisen (SHIN 2012), but yosakoi had some rule, base on Kochi Yosakoi festival's rule (Kochi Yosakoi festival is the oldest yosakoi festival):

Base rule: most all odoriko must use naruko to dance, and the song every team who join the festivao must had a part of song name Seichou. I'm not sure about Kochi Yosakoi just only japanese team but I didn't see any foreign team in this festival

Harajuku Omote...something... Genki Super Yosakoi festival's rule: I'm not really clear Super Yosakoi's rule, but lot of foreign yosakoi team can join the festival

Soran Yosakoi festival's rule: all team who join the festival must a part of position/move create a wave. You can search channel OdoriSamurai on YouTube, they had a part to pull out they yukata, had a wave move...

Most of japanese team use naruko an allmost time when they perform the song, but they still use differents things like fan
So that's why we design a lot model of naruko

You still have chance if you have time. Even you only have 15 min, you should post your idea in hera, your design in here. Sometime you participe some contest not for prize, but you'll receive fun.

Like yosakoi spirit, at Kochi Yosakoi festival, even a lot of teams who don't win any prize, but they participe so much, becase they want to feel happy, feel fun, to connect with people, to dance with everyone

There still have time, right now, in my country (GMT+7) is 23:38, that's mean you still have time. So why don't you take the pen, paper and.camera to make your idea to design?

I based my naruko on the first time naru saw hana because she said she wanted to be dazzling like the moon and it was a a really beautiful night. I made the white bits softer than the black bits because the moon always looks softer than the sky.
