But she’s smarter than Rick Ross and she meant a crop-top and a mini-skirt – not shoes, since Vuitton shoes ain’t all that (I’m kidding you guys, she’s wearing the shoes too). Miku’s latest outing is an opera, with a full orchestra, as operas should be, and a hologram singer. It’s entitled The End and orchestrated by the ATAK multimedia music group – so, not your typical Stravinsky or whatever. And from what I hear, people were mostly concerned about the lack of a person on stage; not so much about the fact that it was an electro-acoustic performance through and through (not just the vocals). Either way, it’s amazing. And the outfits were designed by Louis Vuitton via Marc Jacobs, so a bit more western than her typical cybermaid clothing, which a lot of people also found weird I guess.
But now Miku has been immortalized with life-size statue posted up in the Bankamura hall, un-towering at a kawaii 5’1″ (let us be reminded that she is 16 years old, which may also account for her slightly dysmorphic figure) and wearing said Vuitton outfit. After a run of selected dates in Tokyo, the performance has just been renewed and some dates have been announced for overseas dates at the Théatre du Châtelet in Paris, mid-November. Check out a video below for an idea of what a Miku show looks like and cross your fingers that it comes to an opera house near you, so you can finally take your mom and/or girlfriend out to a decent place for once.- Gnou
