This gorgeous and intricate figure is based off of a winning illustration by Pomu (ぽむ) - now let’s check out how incredible of a job Good Smile has done in making this illustration come to life!

**┬┴┬┴┤_・) pssst, Miku was sculpted by Kawahara Takayuki, the awesome sculptor behind the Sakura’s Stars Bless You figure and Saber’s Motored Cuirassier figure!!**

One of the first parts to check out is Miku’s hair - it’s caught billowing out behind her, like a soft, mystical cloud. The movement of each part is incredible and makes you feel like you’re floating in the air with her! (*^v^*)

The combination of translucent and opaque colors for her hair also helps to really elevate its stunning appearance!

Another spellbinding detail of this figure is the fabrics of her dress. The weight of each layer has been recreated so perfectly, from the heavier ruffles on top to the thin, lightweight lining on the inside of her dress. Even the lace trim of her dress is breathtakingly sculpted with a realistic look! w(°o°)w

With an ever closer look, you can really get a sense for the level of detail with this figure. Look at how the lines of her neck and collarbone have been sculpted - the left side of her collarbone is more pronounced as she raises her left arm! ( ゚∀゚) ノ♡

You’ll also notice the number of accessories adorning her hair, dress, and microphone. They all play homage to some of Miku’s songs - it really brings back so many memories!! (╥ω╥)

Taking a step back, you’ll see how Miku is posed elegantly drifting in the air with her arm extended toward the sky, as her fingers nearly graze her microphone. It is really such an uplifting pose *badum tss*; puns aside, she is posed this way intentionally as Pomu’s illustration is titled Reaching Ever Higher.

It’s the perfect embodiment of Miku’s journey until now and what’s still to come in the future! ✧*。٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و✧*。

How is she posed floating, though? From her giant ribbon behind her, of course! Again, the weight of the fabric is captured perfectly, as the satin bow seems to slump slightly. However, this part of the figure is essential in keeping Miku posed - it really is amazing!       ू(ʚ̴̶̷́ .̠ ʚ̴̶̷̥̀ ू)
