[Cosplay] Vocaloid!

December 4, 2012 at 12:59 pm (cosplay(コスプレ), doujin(同人), otaku word)

 Hi, everyone how’s the things? I am doing alright. OMG, now it’s December? This year is going to end soon…alas, how come time flies? I go to work, cosplay, and meet people…these things repeat and repeat. Oh come to think of it, I met up the blogger who comes to my blog, tasukihoneybunny in October. Well, we met up in Ikebukuro and had dinner. Thank you for the meeting, I enjoyed. I like to meet people from everywhere because whatever they talk about is new to me. I am all ears.^^ 

 So, let’s start today’s entry. I have never been interested in Vocaloids, but sometimes I have to learn and try new things even if I am not willing to. Yes, vocaloids are quite a good example. The vocaloids I have known are Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Len&Lin, Megurine Luka, Meiko, and Kaito. What is vocaloid? Now there is no need to explain, but if you are interested or would like to know about it more, you can check here. It’s a singing voice synthesizer programmed by YAMAHA. You can compose a song and make a vocaloid sing your song. The vocaloids have a decent singing voice even though it sounds like a robot to me. Of course you can get your vocaloid to sing whatever you want it to sing.

 Of course, this vocaloid things are amazingly popular among cosplayers. The interesting point is, costumes are different depending upon the song. Some of them are very gorgeous and cool. You know, I can’t even count the number of the songs. It’s really countless. One of my internet friends, Hinano told me she likes Megurine Luka. I wonder if she still follows. Anyway, I had to learn some songs in case I speak to new cosplayers or go to karaoke with my cosplaying buddies. The vocaloid I have cosplayed is this.

 This is Kamui Gakupo which is voiced by Japanese V-kei singer, Gackt. This cosplay was very challenging and difficult. The character is hard to understand because once again, the theme is different depending upon the song. The song I tried with my friend is Ryu no naku hakoniwa yori 龍ノ啼ク箱庭拠リ[From the miniature garden where the dragon howls]. This costume is so heavy that it was hard to move and strike a pose. The wig is also heavy! What is this? I am like アゲ嬢[agejou]! 何これアゲ嬢みたい! If nothing else, this costume somehow reminds me of takaradsuka. It’s so elegant…

 This photosession took place at the museum and the rose garden. The photographer Maah-san brought the cosplayer he associates, and she cosplayed Megurne Luka. She is a really nice cosplayer, and I think she makes a wonderful Luka. The museum was a bit too dark, but Maah-san tried his best. I would like to say thank you to the two. Also, as for the rose garden, it was a bit pity because it was too early for roses. Even that, the photographer Yoru-san did a great job.
