MikuStar’s Header Image

300-Deep-Sea-Girl-Wndrenvy 

MikuStar's header for July 2014 features one of the most beautiful Hatsune Miku figurines ever created, filmed by a most talented figurine photographer - Singapore's Wndrenvy. The Deep Sea Girl Figurine was sculpted by Iwanaga Sakurako (Shokubutu Shojo-en) and is based on an illustration by ODESSA (Haruyo & Maque) which was in turn inspired by the classic song by Yuuyu featuring Hatsune Miku.
