Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci gives Hatsune Miku Haute Couture Glamour. If you thought that Hatsune Miku couldn’t have any better makeover, you were wrong. Riccardo Tisci has envisioned this vocaloid’s diva in a totally different light. And, let me tell you: it’s amazing! Hatsune Miku is the most famous idol hologram existing right now. As you know, Hatsune Miku is a sixteen-year-old girl from Sapporo, Japan. She has long pigtails, blue fluorescent hair and sings like heaven. She’s an idol, not only for Japanese, but also for many in the States and around the world.
Being a hologram is no excuse to have a designer make an incredible makeover for herself. And so, this is what Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci did, and we must say, it’s amazing! According to Tisci, “she’s so cool.” Taken away by this diva, he has designed a unique outfit that “has multiple types of lace with some crocodile trim, and intermittently, though you can’t see them from far away, there are individual Swarovski crystals.”

Volks started taking preorders for upcoming DD Hatsune Miku. Usually, a customer can only buy Dollfie by winning a lottery, but Volks is selling DD Miku on a made-to-order basis. That means everyone who placed an order during the preorder period can buy it! This is fantastic!
See how beautiful she is. So majestic.
In addition to Miku doll, there’s going to be an additional dress set for sale, featuring one of Miku’s most popular songs, Senbonzakura.
Preorder period lasts till December 1st, 2013.

If you are a passionate Miku fan, you might have heard about the life-size Hatsune Miku figure dressed in Louis Vuitton outfit that showed up at Bunkamura Orchard Hall on May 22nd. It was made in collaboration with Hatsune Miku’s opera, “THE END.”
Life-size, 158cm tall Hatsune Miku figure displayed at the reception event of THE END
Although there wasn’t any public announcement, a limited number of miniature replicas of this Louis Vuitton x Hatsune Miku figure were given to guests who attended the reception, and the event was for invitation only.
Therefore these figures are extremely rare! We’ve found a few of them appearing on YJ auction recently.
Acclaimed Vocaloid producer livetune (also known as “kz” who composed Packaged and Tell your world) released his latest album “Re:Dial” on March 20th. On youtube, there’s a music video featuring one of the songs recorded in the album Redial.This video is created and directed by the world-reknowned artist Takashi Murakami and his team of talented artists, Kaikai Kiki’s Studio Poncotan Animation Studio.
Team up of Takashi Murakami and livetune is already quite a dream collaboration, but Murakami is not the only one who contributed to the making of Redial music video. With character design by talented arnimator/artist mebae (who also designed album cover) and choreography by Ken Maeda (who directed ending theme dance sequences for anime Pretty Cure series), no doubt the video turned out amazing with a perfect balance of cool and cute!
Check it out for yourself!
Murakami will also premier his first feature film he ever directed, Mememenokurage (EN: Jellyfish Eyes) on April 26th (English site). Livetune’s piece “Last Night, Good Night (Re:Dialed)” featuring Hatsune Miku is used for the film’s theme song as well. It’d be interesting to see how the two creators continue to work together in the future.
