I had this idea a few weeks ago about trying out a Steampunk themed Vocaloid. I was intending to do MEIKO
, and my ideas seemed to come in a few short bursts at a time.
For one, my knowledge of Steampunk may not be as up to par as i believe it is, so if i make any mistakes or if you have any suggestions please please PLEASE let me know, this is why im posting it up here, because i have a feeling that an entire subforum worth of information and people cannot be wrong.
Vocaloids are (in simple terms) Singing Androids, so my first initial idea was to model the base of the cosplay after a musical wind up doll of sorts. I was going to make a key to place on my back, and perhaps two small half-moon gears on the shoulders to give it a more rustic look.
I piled together a few pictures to explain how the costume would look
. I know it may look poorly done, but i do better if i just show instead of tell. I also have the picture of the doll joints i just recently learned how to do on there.
Hopefully you guys will accept my idea, and i hope even more that i really am blending the two together correctly. I thought it was a cool idea.
