Quoted from BRS wiki, so basically, dude creates character, dudes friend creates song about character, Miku sings song~ :3

wow so much positive responses thank you for the support.

I think I will switch between topless and a short tank top occasionaly, just to mix it up a bit. and boots look good on this plus the song you sent was awesome : D

Also as stated, I did some digging around before deciding to do this.

Black Rock Shooter was originally a drawing, it was coincidental that it had the same hair as Miku. A song writer liked the picture so much it inspired him to make the song "Black Rock Shooter" (using Miku's voice) into which the artist was credited and was asked permission before submiting it to a Japanese version of Youtube which got 2.2 millions views. Thus setting of the fan base we know today.

or so I remember reading anyway

Hopefully that eased your pains, just as you eased mine :3

Go for it! I think the worse thing that could happen would be if you were mistaken for the main character from Ao No Exorcist, and that isn't that bad, all things considered. C:

I had no idea. That's really interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Ryo is known for using miku and he fell in love with Hukes work, tho Huke did change her design a lil to not be confused with miku, I think that is were the short pony tail on her side is shorter then her longer one

But I don't think it worked, seeing how many people were still confused and thought she was miku

BRS OVA is based off the song BRS, and the character BRS too. The song was sang by Miku and she was depicted in the video as BRS, there is even a Black Rock Chooter fan art and video based off Hachune Miku xD and all the other Vocaloids in BRS version in fan arts and cosplays. You should see the original video and original fanart, everything was made long before the OVA by an artist called Huke and a friend of him.

I think the companies producing the BRS game and OVA want to get money with something that isn't their property, and in order to avoid being charged for copyright infraction they say "it doesn't have anything to do with Miku", when it's a blatant copy (they even copied the animation of the video song lol).

It's the danger of Vocaloid programs: people create characters, dresses, stories based off them, then a company copies everything and make a profit for themselves. I really hope they're paying Huke and his friend for this.

I would love to see this! Black leather and big guns? Sounds like the perfect thing to genderbend.

My only question would be how you'd pull off the rather revealing nature of the costume... I personally think going shirtless with either open-chest or part of your coat zipped up would look very good for male BRS cosplay.

I was going for an open chest with the jacket when I do it topless but I think coat zipped up as well would work. As for the jacket itself do you think people would mind if I altered the size of the jacket possibly reaching my knees or thighs?

I saw an amazing genderbent Black Rock Shooter at AWA. He was shirtless and had the jacket at his ankles, and his wig looked like a dark navy/black black Kaito wig with some dark blue streaks; it was really, really cool (although I didn't ask him how he made the gunsword). As for the jacket, I think people would understand if you didn't want your jacket running all over the ground getting dirty/stepped on. Knees or thighs is understandable for length.

I think your right on that one

I'm not sure how people can stand having there clothes scrap across the floor getting it dirty.
I don't think I will go for a wig, always been a natural hair kind of person, will possiby do the black hair but with a gradient of navy blue at the ends or at some points of the hair.

On another note how would I do the flaming eye?

The flaming eye... um... oAo;;

The sort of hardish see-through plastic people usually use for Kamina's shades? /help failure You could make a sort of scooter (as in OVER 9000!!!!!11!1!) with a wire sort of thing (like people do for Vocaloid headphones, as seen in Ameer's avvie) and bend it around. :B You'd have to make sure the plastic/foam/whatever you use for the blue flame isn't too heavy, though.

Or just be really dedicated and lite a propane tank right by your eye! 8D Because that would be really, really safe... OuO;; (Oh god it's like my advice gets worse/stranger with every post)
