It’s looking like a long road to Guild Wars 2. Do you need something to do? Are you in need of a new Guild Wars challenge? If you’ve got the skills, if you’ve got the creativity, if you’ve got a decent Internet connection, maybe you can enter the Plush Gwen Contest.
The contest is being relaunched because there was a lack of interest in the original contest. No one created a blog that was qualified to enter. The relaunch is to make the contest more inviting.
One of the last actions that Gaile Gray made as the ArenaNet Community Relations Manager was to approve the creation of the Plush Gwen. It is a rare prize, it’s custom made, it cannot be bought in stores and I think it’s adorable. Would a Plush Gwen doll be the perfect gift for you or someone special in your life?
The Plush Gwen Doll is about 9 1/2″ inches tall. The Plush Gwen has an iconic red cape and the familiar hair cut.
To enter the contest, simply enter a comment (on any open Photics.com post) between now and the official launch of Guild Wars 2 or December 21. 2010 — whichever comes first.
