Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I’ve always felt I’ve had a bit of an affinity for pumpkins! I much prefer sweeter side dishes anyway!
Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
|From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku dressed up a cute little devil for Halloween! Her dress is made in the image of a pumpkin, and the outfit is covered with cute and colorful lace and ribbons! She also features expressions with orange eyeshadow, fangs and wings, bringing out the little devil in Miku for fans to enjoy!
Together with her standard smiling expression, she also comes with a confident sneering expression and a special pumpkin head for all sorts of Halloween pranks! Optional parts include Halloween-themed items such as some candy and a jack-o’-lantern which can even be used as a head part for Nendoroid Petites! Enjoy this year’s Halloween with Miku by your side!
A slightly mischievous Miku perfect for Halloween!
Even the packaging is made to look like a jack-o’-lantern ♡
This product will actually be on sale soon! (｀・ω・´)
She will be on sale first at three different events!
Starting with MIKU EXPO 2014 on the 11th October 2014! (GSC Online orders will be available at a later stage.) The other places you can buy her are listed on her product page: Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Halloween Ver.
Let’s take a closer look, shall we? ♪
This is how the packing looks!
…I see some rather interesting expressions! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
I’ll be taking a look at each of them in detail!
First up we have her Standard Expression! ♡
Those little fangs on either side are just so adorable!!
The orange eye shadow also adds to the mischievous look! (*´Д`)
It’s definitely a rather different feeling to the normal Miku-san – personally I’ve really fallen in love with it! The way her eyelashes and pupils look have also been changed to have more of a Halloween look! ♪
Her expression isn’t the only thing that is cute though…
Orange x Black x White!
A Sexy Halloween Costume! ♪
The little balls around the bottom of her skirt look like little balls of cream, and the little bat wings on her dress are so very cute! ♥︎ ヽ(ｏ´∀｀ｏ)ﾉ
(・∀・) “Did you notice her legs yet?”
We’re joined by the figure’s planner, Hamako !
(・∀・) “If you look above the black and white striped socks, you’ll see she’s wearing a garterbelt!”
Oooh! I see!!! You can even see the little clasps on them! Σ(ﾟ∀ﾟﾉ)ﾉ
(・∀・) “We can’t show any more on photos here, but be sure to take a look if you grab her! The details are quite intricate!”
Let me be the first to say that I was very impressed!! I love seeing details on places that you normally shouldn’t even see!
So this is where Halloween Miku started from!
(・∀・) “Yep! The costume design was by Suoh-san, which then moved on all the way to becoming a Nendoroid!”
After the Nendoroid was announced, a more showy illustration was also made!
Both of the illustrations have a bit of a mature feeling to them, but also a kind of mysterious sexiness! (/ω＼)
The little bat wings on her back are a bit hard to see from the front, but from the back they’re very noticeable!
(・∀・) “They have of course been included on the Nendoroid too!”
Ooh! They even make use of transparent parts!
But even more amazing is that expression! She looks even more mischievous than before!
(・∀・) “My personal favorite – the confident sneering expression!”
It’s perfect! Good job!!
The expression brings out that mysterious feeling from the illustrations nicely! The directions that twin-tails are twisting in are also somehow rather sexy! ♡
This pose was my attempt at making a sexy Nendoroid pose! (=ﾟωﾟ)ノ
The standard expression would have also worked well, but the way that only one of her fangs is sticking out on this expression gives it that extra little bit of little devilish charm! Definitely not an expression I think you’d ever see on a normal Miku figure! ♡
(・∀・) “Hmm…. but there is another expression that also suits Halloween, perhaps even more so!”
W-What expression could possibly feel more Halloweeny than this mischievous looking little devil?! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
Wait! I remember! I saw it in the blister pack!
(・∀・) “A pumpkin head!”
At first the impact is rather huge… but after looking for awhile it actually looks rather cute!
(｀・ω・) “I was really worried when making this expression that it wasn’t going to come out cute enough for a Nendoroid.”
We’re also joined by the GSC production team’s Itashi Katahara!
(｀・ω・) “But once it was connected onto the hair and body, it actually came out looking rather nice!”
The expression alone IS rather creepy, but combined with the body she is rather cute!
I also look forward to trying the face on various other characters! ε=(｡・д・｡)
Aaaaaahh!! ( ﾟдﾟ)
The included pumpkin can be used to simply display beside her, or instead used as a head part for a Nendoroid Petite figure!!
(・∀・) “Nendoroid Petites want to join in the Halloween fun! I hope everyone enjoys the option!”
A little devil Miku ready to join you for Halloween!
She will be on sale at various events in the USA first, but will also be available worldwide from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP afterwards!
(・∀・) “The first place that she will be on sale will be MIKU EXPO 2014 in Los Angeles… and I will be joining the event myself too!”
No fair! Hamako gets to debut in America before me!! (´□｀｡)
(・∀・) “It’s my first time on an overseas business trip!”
Details about the event can be found here: http://event.goodsmile.info/event/hatsune-miku-expo-2014-in-los-angeles/?lo=en-us
If you see Hamako there, be sure to say hello! ヾ(｡｀・Д・´｡)ﾉ
