Get ready for angry and smiley faces like you’ve never seen them before.

Japanese artists love a good online challenge, with creative ideas like the ten-line game recently creating a storm on Twitter. Now there’s a new trending hashtag that’s got everyone’s attention, and this time it has everyone recreating their favourite anime characters using nothing but Twitter stickers.

Japanese Twitter users have been sharing their works of art with the hashtag “ステッカーで推し作れるのか選手権” which roughly translates to “Can You Make It With Stickers Championship”. According to the images online, you really can make it with stickers, so let’s take a look at some of their impressive creations below!

With a nip here and a tuck there, emoji faces can take on the appearance of all sorts of animated chracters.

One of the biggest hurdles appears to be recreating the distinctive spikes and wispy strands of an anime character’s hair, but some fans have found creative workarounds to help them out.

▼ Croissants are a top choice for recreating anime hairstyles.

Artists have been incorporating a variety of stickers like bows, hands, clothes, and even stationery into their designs to achieve the desired effect.

▼ Who knew fruit and vegetables could be so effective?

▼ And of course, Pikachu is the perfect shade of yellow for the emoji-filled challenge!

Since the trending hashtag appeared online in Japan this month, word quickly spread around the world, with designs now appearing from overseas as well. If you’re up for the challenge, don’t forget to share your images online with the hashtag #ステッカーで推し作れるのか選手権. Happy designing, everyone!
