The Good Smile Company x Piapro collaboration for Snow Miku 2016 has begun! That means you can now submit your designs for not only next year’s official Snow Miku design, but her pet rabbit Yukine as well (yes, even he’s returning again!).

The design theme for submissions this year is “Enjoying Hokkaido Winter Sports“. Winter sports are popular in Hokkaido, so it’s the perfect theme to help spread that bit of extra cheer next year. A required design element is a “Knitted Cap” for Snow Miku’s design, so don’t forget this!

The designs for Snow Miku 2016 and Yukine are to be submitted separately, if you decide to try submitting designs for both. A design template for Snow Miku is provided, which are required for use for this year’s submissions. Yukine has no template, so you are free to think of unique poses.

Japan Airlines Flight Attendants Dance to “39 feat. Hatsune Miku”

A recent promotional video shows the flight attendants of Japan Airlines (JAL) dancing to the popular Hatsune Miku song “39” in cheer style outfits, to help promote their participation at the upcoming Niconico Chokaigi event later this month.

The support and love for Hatsune Miku from a company as large as JAL is certainly something to see, and they’ve definitely attracted the interest of the Vocaloid community demographic. They will be be offering a “flight simulator” activity, along with the chance of a stepcar photo (this is a thing?) at the event. I wonder if we’ll ever see a Hatsune Miku itasha jumbo jet?

Niconico Chokaigi will take place between April 25th and 26th at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Center in Chiba.

Fan Hatsune Miku Concert “Yozakura MIKU LIVE Party 2″ Held At Lake Ijira, Japan

One of the major topics of interest in the Vocaloid community is concert events. Nearly every fan wishes to attend one at some point, while others simply cannot attend enough of them. During the time gap between official events, or in areas where official concerts may not be seen, you will find that fans will come together to celebrate with their own miniature events.

One such event titled “Yozakura MIKU LIVE Party 2″ recently took place at Lake Ijira, Japan on April 4th, and had a gathering of at least 100 Hatsune Miku fans from local and distant areas. The event was arranged by Ijiriko and several others, and included a lunch party, 2 hour fan concert, and an astronomical observation event. The latter event was cancelled due to rain (it’s a running joke in the Japanese Vocaloid community that Hatsune Miku is a rain girl).

Another common practice seen by Hatsune Miku fans at gatherings in Japan is the “Hatsune Miku Shrine”, where fans will place their dolls, figures and plushies on a single display (as seen above). You see many original items, but also a number of fan creations and modifications, and it makes for fun photos for everyone attending.

Then of course there is the concert event itself, which now has a full upload on YouTube, courtesy of Ijirako. You can enjoy the video below! The full setlist is also available in the video description (in Japanese).
