Hatsune Miku (Dark Woods Circus)


Last Updated: 08-01-2013

The song is so beautiful and enchanting. I love just everything about it. I decided to make this costume right after seeing the music video because it really touched me. The design of Miku's character is very interesting, and as the video is drawn in a very simple style, I took some artistic liberties to make it even prettier and more detailed. So I designed my own version using the dress in the video as a base. Now I've seen this done in so many different ways, and everyone interprets the colors of the costume a little differently. I personally believe that the story happens in a very dark place, which makes the colors look muted. So this is what it would look like in daylight.

The song is made by Machigerita-P and art by Kokuto Yuki. In this song Miku has been transferred from an asylum, where her legs were replaced with an animal's, to a circus where she is forced to act cheerful and perform to the visitors. If she did not behave, they would throw acid on her face, which is represented by the flowers.

A description on how I made it will be shared on my Patreon page.

I wore this to VI Japan Weekend Madrid 2.0... What a mess it was. DX I had some issues with the organizers. But I was surprised by how many people recognized this version, I was even stopped by a random person on the street on the way back for a compliment!

I don't recommend the con to anybody, and for a better experience I also wore this to Animecon X in Finland in summer 2013. I got only four photos taken, but I got lucky and won the contest! I seriously thought people hated my costume for a while but it seems it wasn't true. XD All in all it was an awesome con, I met some of the nicest people ever.
