Road to NYCC '11: Design Contest Craziness!

With New York Comic Con less than a month away, companies are starting to promote their NYCC plans.  A couple of the promotions we found are design contests that require a little work ahead of time, so get ready!

First up, our friends at Red Bubble sent us some info about their design contest.  You have to create your very own, original, comic book character.  No rules on powers, dress, good or evil; they just have to be awesome!  The winner gets their creation on a Red Bubble exclusive t-shirt to be sold to the masses at NYCC!  All entries will be shared with the fans, and the top 20 vote-getters will be seen by Red Bubble top staffers, who will pick the winner!

You can get more details right here.  There are only a few days left to enter, so get started now!

Are you a Red Bubble fan but not a design star?  Don't worry, they have a ton of giveaways planned for during NYCC, including stickers, cards and bags, and even some limited edition NYCC t-shirts and iPhone cases.  That's not even the big news - on Saturday and Sunday, they will be giving away one years' worth of free t-shirts from to a lucky winner.  You can find Red Bubble at booth 1938 so make sure you add their booth to your schedule!

Are you in love with the Android guy?  Do you want to make him better?  If you do, tokidoki and Metro PCS need your help!  They are looking for a fan to design a new tokidoki-inspired Android to decorate their booth at NYCC.  The top 20 designs, picked by tokidoki's creative director Simone Legno, will be posted on Facebook for fan voting!

Check out this page for all the details!  You have until October 1st to enter, so get started!
