For Fun: Barnaby’s Surprise Birthday Party 2011!

Hey, everyone loves surprises, right? Right?! We’re a bit more classier than getting the Birthday Boy mugged in a back alley while being all alone, though. So we decided to do something else to celebrate the birthday of one Barnaby Brooks, Jr. on October 31st.

How to take part:

Make something that falls under the following categories and take a photo of it!

  • Arts & crafts: handmade items such as plushies, birthday cards, traditional art, or other handicrafts. (Note: You can make part of the present digitally and print it, the photo must be of an actual item!)
  • Food: birthday cakes or other birthday themed food.

Let your creativity flow! Remember that all presents must indicate somehow that they are for Barnaby. You can include him in the photo in same fashion as in Friend Rice Event, but it’s not required as long as it’s clear from your photo that the present is for him. Since these are presents for Barnaby, they must be actual items. Please don’t send in cosplay photos or digital fanart. We’ll make a gallery of all the presents to celebrate his birthday together with everyone! You can freely promote the event to your friends, the more the merrier!

You can send your photos to mail[at]thisissternbild.com at any time before 12:00 (noon) CET on October 31st.

P.S. There’s also a Halloween themed event to celebrate Bunny’s birthday!

    • Sending them to Morita would be kind of amazing to do, but it’s pretty challenging. Stuff like that has to go through the agency and all that jazz. (The thought did cross my mind, no lie…)

      • Agreed – but it would have been amazing if it was possible. XD I’d imagine his office would be buried in Bunny fan-made items then. :’3

  1. I have a question regarding the cosplay aspect of your post. I’m making a Kaede costume, so would it be okay for me to dress up in it and take the picture of my gift as if she’s giving it to Barnaby? The gift would be something separate, but I thought that could be a fun picture idea. Even if I can’t do that, I will definitely make him a gift, so thanks for organizing this!

    • No cosplay of any kind, sorry. The event rules don’t exclude making the present from another character to Barnaby, so you can make it from Kaede to Barnaby if you want.

      I have some other event ideas, if this one goes well I hope we can arrange something for the cosplayers in the future.

  2. This sounds like heaps of fun so I’ll definitely do something! I don’t know what just yet but… I’ll think of something. It’s for Bunny, after all. 😀

  3. I was so sad I missed the rice event! I definitly want to participate in this one! *w* Ah, I already have so many idea’s~ <3<3 I hope my Wild Tiger figure and Tiger mobile arrive before it. I want to do something with them too 🙂 I love these events, thank you for making them! I hope we can show them to the T&B crew again!

  4. So excited for this! Thanks for organizing another event!
    Feeling uncreative lately, but will try to put something together for this. 🙂
