Amanda LaPalme Teams with Notifuro April 04 2014

Amanda LaPalme who use to go by the name 'Dragon Duelist Girl' has been a long time competitive YuGiOh trading card game player. Ever since the age of 16, she has traveled to several YuGiOh championship events and on a few occasions placing in the top 10. What attracted Notifuro to Amanda was her natural ability to free hand draw and paint. Amanda has been creating custom play-mats and cards for about two years now. One of our favorites is the one of Freeza from DragonBall Z. Amanda's heart and dedication has made the wings on her back grow, allowing her to soar real high and gain popularity. In 2013 she started to live stream various games on Twitch TV, most noticeably League of Legends. Amanda then custom designed a cosplay outfit of Jinx from League of Legends, where she appeared at Youmacon. A video of her voice acting as Jinx can be seen below.

 


Below is an interview conducted between Amanda and 4gamer:

Q: What was your first opinion about Notifuro when they reached out to you? As you most likely are contacted by hundreds of people everyday to do things.

A: Well, as you deduced. I honestly wasn't sure what to think since everything looked fairly new; I've been previously contacted by a number of people launching similar projects and they all were flops or never followed through. After a few months of observing Corey's dedication to Notifuro, my cynicism evaporated. 


Q: How will you be contributing to Notifuro?

A: In whatever way I can be helpful. I'm an artist and cosplay enthusiast, and we already have a few ideas in the works. By the end of this year, I hope to have contributed some shirt designs and travel to events with Notifuro and cosplay at their booth!


Q: Are you excited to see your artwork come to life on articles of clothing?

A: Of course! I think that's something most artists unanimously wish to see for their work- others enjoying it, even enough to wear it! I think that's a great honor and hope my designs will be good enough.


Q: Can you give your fans some hints to what your first design might be?

A: It's themed towards the game community I'm actively involved in. :)


Q: Lastly, will we see any Pokémon ball bra's in the future?

A: Hah. Sure, if Notifuro makes a Women's department.

 

The Notifuro team supports Amanda 110% in anything she does.
We are really excited to have her on board and can not wait to see her artwork being printed onto our clothing. Amanda will be joining us at certain conventions so stay tuned for more information if you wish to meet her in person. If you can not wait to see her, be sure to check out her Facebook fan page where she posts her artwork and cosplay photos regularly. https://www.facebook.com/amandalepanda

Tokido Wins Shadowloo Showdown 2013 October 13 2013

 

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi AKA "The Murderface" has struck again with a most impressive showing at Shadowloo Showdown 2013 #SS2k13. He secured top 8 placings in each game he chose to compete in, including Second place in KOF13. Icing on the cake was a victory in the completely stacked Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition ver 2012 tournament. 

 

With this victory Tokido secures his place in history as the first winner of a unique Notifuro Zangetsu award. Thanks to everyone at Shadowloo Showdown, Boss Logic and especially all the players and spectators that make these events live. Stay tuned for more...

 

Very special thanks to Mad Catz Tokido's sponsor, great supporter of eSports, and the Fighting Game Community. Shout outs to Markman 


Notifuro to Award Shadowloo Showdown 2013 Winner of Street Fighter with Zangetsu! October 11 2013

This year at Shadowloo Showdown (2013) - Notifuro has donated a custom hand painted katana sword to the event, in which the winner of Street Fighter will receive. Normally the sword would of been laser etched onto the blade but there was an issue with shipping carved blades to Australia. Notifuro also plans on 
handing out swords to many gaming events in North America in the near future.
 
A bonus to receiving a sword in general, is Notifuro has chosen the bankai sword form of soul reaper Kurosaki Ichigo (named Zangetsu) from the hit anime series Bleach. Not surprising since Notifuro has its roots from Japan. 

If you haven't already seen the live stream of the event I suggest doing so now, as there are  only several more days until it is over. http://www.shadowlogic.com.au/

           
 



Notifuro to Include Miracle Battle Cards with Clothing October 06 2013

To promote their way into North America, Notifuro is including random Miracle Battle cards from Japan with most of their apparel items. Example, get a shirt & get a card in the bag. Get a hoodie & possibly get 2-3 cards with it. Miracle Battle cards are from a Japanese trading card game similar to 'Yu-Gi-Oh'. Most of the anime's associated with the game are from Shonen Jump, so only expect getting such cards from series like, DragonBall Z, Naruto, Hunter X Hunter, One Piece & Toriko. We think the American audience will really appreciate the extra gift with our gear.
