A tweet from Good Smile Company’s Hamako has given us a surprise reveal on the Figma Sakura Miku by Max Factory! She was originally announced at this year’s Summer WonFes but was hugely overlooked; this latest reveal comes from a quick look by Hamako at today’s Magical Mirai 2019 exhibition booth in Osaka.

She’s based on a visual by KEI for the collaboration with Hirosaki Sakura Festival as the official supporting character. More details on the figure are expected soon. Stay tuned!

The winning Snow Miku 2020 design has been revealed at Magical Mirai 2019 in Osaka! The winning costume design for next year comes from the Chinese illustrator and #3 design finalist, Maple.

The costume titled “Horn Miku” features Snow Miku in a marching-band uniform with a french-horn as her instrument, and is surprisingly both cute and beautiful!

Congratulations to Maple! We look forward to seeing the various collaborations and celebrations featuring this art at next year’s Snow Miku festival in Sapporo. Below is one of Maple’s more recent sketches of their own costume design.
