Fan Creates Tiny 18-Karat Gold Hatsune Miku in Video
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Vocaloid idol Hatsune Miku has inspired countless figures in her day. However, fan and Niconico Douga user raku posted a video on Saturday of what may be the first tiny metal figurines of the popular virtual idol.
The video begins by showing the process of creating a 3D model for the figurines to use to make a prototype and mold. The process can be used to create gold, silver, and bronze Miku figurines. In particular, the video highlights an 18-karat gold version of the figurine charm.
The figurines may not be official, but Miku fans are in love with them. One net commenter said, "Amazing...." and others were impressed by the craftsmanship and curious about the cost of each piece.
