Cosplay Wednesday – Hatsune Miku
The VOCALOID diva Hatsune Miku has received a lot of love as of late. Not only was it her sixth birthday on August 30, the rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F recently made its US debut. To celebrate, Gamers Heroes takes a look at the finest Miku cosplay in all the land.
Hailing from Saitama, Japan, “Cosplay Queen” Saya had long since taken a liking to Hatsune Miku. Not only has she done hundreds of Hatsune Miku cosplay shoots to her name, she also has a dedicated fan base thousands of members strong. While it is true that anybody and their mom can don the Hatsune Miku wig, Saya was one of the few that can pull it off with panache. Little details like the colored fingernails are present and accounted for as well. She even had her own VOCALOID crew, with fellow cosplayers filling the roles of Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, Kaito, and Meiko.
Unfortunately, Saya has since passed, but her cosplays and her love for Hatsune Miku will always be remembered.
