The prototype was first revealed back at WonFes in February, but ever since she has been through change after change, a few more changes and then another change… to get her ready to be officially announced!
I feel it’s been a long struggle to get her looking perfect, but when you really take the time to enjoy this figure, you can see all the hard work that has gone into it!
Today I’ll be spinning her around in order to show off each and every angle of this lovely figure! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
Deep Sea Girl Miku is a rather long figure, which makes photos for the blog (and web team) rather difficult. You can get a good feeling for how big she is in the first photo up above! Remember that size as you have a look at each of these photos!
Let’s start off from the front!
This is of course intended as the main angle to display her from! (`･ω･´)
Deep Sea Miku has a sweet smile on her face as she looks up toward the surface of the water. The balance between her body, dress and hair is simply magnificent! The figure is also too big – I can’t use my screen as a background like normal!
Moving a little bit to the left!
From this angle her adorable face is looking straight at you! The positioning of her thighs can actually be quite revealing from this angle! But I checked… nothing is showing in this photo! (・ω・)
She has a very slim bodyline overall, and her skin appears to have a lovely lady-like softness to it!
A look from the direct left!
The first thing you have to notice is the amount of volume her hair has! The manufacturing have been joking about how exactly this is going to be done… but it’s really no joke! It’s some very complex sculpting!! But I trust the GSC manufacturing team will find a way around it!! (((゜Д゜)))
And to repeat what I said from the previous photo… those thighs are really at a rather revealing angle!!
The left-side back!
All you can see his her huge hair!! As she is posed as if underwater, her hair is all floating up around her in a very gentle looking scene!
Most figures focus on the x-axis and y-axis, but this one also needed to think about the z-axis while she was being sculpted to ensure the hair was floating around as if she was underwater. When you look at her from a different angle you’ll notice just how different the hair looks! It’s incredible!
Directly from the back!
From the front you can only partially see some coral reef around her, but there is a lovely reef visible right from the back as well! It’s actually rather large and has quite an impressive presence just by itself! Σ(゜Д゜;）
A lot of you may think that the figure could simply have done without this particular reef at the back, but it creates a lovely contrast with the darker black and blue colors of Miku, which really pulls the figure together beautifully!
Plus, figures need to look great no matter what angle you choose to look at them from! There needs to be balance all around the figure to ensure it is a solid product that fans will appreciate forever! Even if it’s a view from the back, that shouldn’t be a reason to cut corners!
Moving onto the right-side back!
I ended up writing an awful lot about the coral reef, but Miku herself is certainly not to be forgotten! Her beautiful, thin back and the way her hair is tied up at the back both look magnificent! Even through you can’t see her expression from this angle, it’s still a work of art… （*´∀｀*）
A look from the direct right!
It’s quite hard to see from the photos, but just look at how the frills on her dress are piling up! Even the texture and wrinkles seen on the original illustration have been faithfully recreated as a part of the figure! If you’re a fan of the original illustration there is no way you could so no to this!
And a little more to the right!
I think this is my personal favorite angle!! (=゜ω゜)ノ
When you take the picture you get a good feeling of the difference is distance between the reef and Miku herself, which really adds to the underwater effect! Plus just look at those sexy feet! They’re so delicate and beautiful!
Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.!
She’ll be up for preorder tomorrow!!
It’s so much fun taking pictures of a such a big figure!!(`･ω･´)
I tend to zoom things up much larger than they actually are when I take pictures for the blog, but even so Deep Sea Miku still looks amazing! She really is a load of fun to photograph! Tomorrow I’ll continue my review in standard Mikatan style, taking a closer look at the most interesting parts!!
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
