Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Today’s Early Bird special is a scale figure of Vocaloid Hatsune Miku’s Taiwan and HK tour look!
Her look is based off of ordan’s illustration of Miku for the 2019 MIKU EXPO held in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
You might think Miku’s outfit looks more or less the same from a quick glance, but you can really see how detailed and modified her outfit has become to match the locale of her 2019 tour! One of the most impressive parts of this figure is her retro microphone, which just screams of vintage Hong Kong. (∿°○°)∿
With a closer look, you can really see all of the details of her adapted uniform - her sleeveless white shirt has been remade with a mandarin collar and some pankou to resemble the look of a qipao. Her tie’s metallic shine really brings it front and center and helps it pop against the softer colors of her outfit.
Even her square-shaped bands for her hair have had a Chinese flair added to them. While the shape itself hasn’t been modified, the bands hide a lovely camellia flower within. The petals of the flower, nestled tightly together around a small bunch of yellow anthers, look so full and ready for a plucking! ԅ(‾⌣‾ԅ)
But one of the most standout parts of this figure is Miku’s long, luxurious hair billowing out around her! Her colorful tresses are in their trademark twin tails, but the movement of her hair as it’s swept up is perfectly captured. The strands have been carefully sculpted twisting and turning, creating a wispy and voluminous touch to her signature hairdo. (⺣◡⺣)♡*
And something you might notice that is a bit different from the illustration is the placement of the ribbons around Miku. In the illustration, these red ribbons originally hung down around her, but these ribbons now sprout from the ground beneath her figure form. Shaped almost like a faberge egg around her, these strands of gorgeously patterned ribbon seem to envelope her and also serve as a base for Miku (look at her carefully positioned foot and the bent ribbon!).

But one of the most striking parts of this figure is Miku’s gentle expression. Amongst all the movement and brilliance of the figure, her mellow expression creates such a striking yet subtle contrast to it all. The softness of her bright eyes, matched with her slight smile, really brings the beauty of this figure to a whole other level. ♥～(‘▽^人)
