Amazing, I love how you used the yarn to create an effect. I can't really describe it. The picture is amazing as well as the setting and the costume. Overall, I LOVED IT! Although I do wish that the costume included the 01 on Miku's arm. Also, I think that the megaphone was a great prop. I know it's part of her costume in "Love is War", but I think it looks fantastic! The colors are spot on, and her makeup fits the costume. The cos-player and the photographer did a stunning job! You should keep on doing Vocaloid stuff. Awesome job!

Well for starters, I really liked the photo, is one of the best cosplays I've seen, I love the mystery photo projects, until the hair is real, ie not seem plastic as others I've seen, well designed suit the megaphone is very real and the pose is perfect, but I see only one error, 1 = the thing on his arm (not if it is a manga or something XD) does not seem as credible, but hey, nothing is perfect, well that's all, remember this is constructive criticism, nothing to criticize! luck, sigue asi de bien tomando fotos

amelia aut, peace

I thought this was a amazing cosplay and probably the best cosplay i've ever seen!
I like how you look so mysterious in the picture. The expression on your face displayed...what Miku's like in love is war.
The background is amazing and suits the picture
The way you made your hair fly up was AWESOME!!!
There was nothing that bad about it, i guess.
I think you put in A LOT of effort, which is really good.
The outfit was almost perfect, you just forgot the 01 on Hatsune miku's arm.
I think you did very well and keep on cosplaying!

I LOVE this nya~!!
this is the best cosplay that I've seen of....any anime really
I mean I've seen pretty good cosplays of Miku and other anime but this is the best I've seen nya~

I'm listening to Miku now (The Disapearence of Hatsune Miku) and I'm looking back and forth and I dont really see anything missing nya~

and I like how that hair is flowing like that cause Miku's hair often does that when singing
her hair also goes over her eye when singing Love is War which you also didn't miss nya~

so I LOVE its nya~ great job nya~!!

This is a beautiful photo! I love the snerfy of the cold blue colors and the stark cold-looking setting. The smooth soft skin and flowing hair gives it an underwater quality that again works e with the blue theme. It also has a soft ethereal quality about it- almost angelic. I like that the lines on the ground, the horizon, the cloud formation and the hair all converge on her head. It powerfully draws you in.

My two major issues are perhaps related to the character/story so they may be unavoidable.

The red rope is a major distractor for me. First the warm color doesn't fir in the cold blue scene. The hardness, particularly the clump at her waist also detracts from the soft ethereal quality. The red out-of-focus line on the right side draws the eye away from the central focus.

the sleeve on her arm is too heavy and disproportionately large for her size and proximity with her face and detracts from it. The cut-off hand leaves me with an uneasy feeling.

Lastly, I think that the horn is too close to the top edge which gives it a cramped feeling and it seems she's shouting at the border. I would have preferred to see more open sky which would have given the feeling of her shouting to the empty heavens, and that + more of the cold sky would have added to the bleakness and amplified her desolate situation. I would have preferred the hair not be cropped at the end, but to flow out and freely into the emptiness. It may not have been in the frame.

Still it's a dramatic picture that really draws you into it and her situation.

You look beautiful! You fill the role well because your overall physical appearance works well for the cosplay. You chose a perfect day to cosplay a song like this, and it really sets the mood. I don't want to sound stupid here, but how did you get the hair to do that? Is it strings or real wind? You'll have to send me a note about it. And might I add that you look like Luna Lovegood? The only reason I didn't have a full 5 stars on originality was due to the fact that you don't own Hatsune Miku; Krypton does. Overall, it looks beautuful! This is more than worthy of a favorite!

Something many people forget to do when they take pictures is to avoid having the main piece of the picture in the center. The rule of thirds, while somewhat basic, are often ignored. You used the rule of thirds nicely.

The color scheme is notable too. If the picture had just been Hatsune Miku in a barren field, it would have been boring. The red string, which pops against the cyan of Hatsune Miku, adds more depth to the picture. It makes the barren, plain background almost fitting.

The background does not have to be super colorful and exciting. In fact, I think that having a more interesting background in this picture would have taken away from it. It would have distracted us from the focus of the picture. Giving us nothing to look at in the background forces us to notice the pure artistic beauty in the foreground, a detail that would be easy to miss if you had chosen an exciting and colorful background.

Overall, this is one of my favorite pieces of photography that I have seen on this site so far. I am very impressed with this. I am having trouble finding something wrong with it, but the point of a critique is to help you improve, not to praise you. I almost feel like this critique is a failure because it cannot help you improve. Sorry, but great job!

Am I correct in assuming that this photograph is an image representation of the song, 'Love is War', sung by the Vocaloid – Miku Hatsune? I think the general theme of the song is portraying the emotional struggle and pain one goes through when it comes to love, and I think this image portrays the feel of the song to almost perfection. I think that the incorporation of the megaphone is a brilliant idea, it represents how much Miku yells out in the video, and one of the lines of the lyrics (English translation) states, 'oh, to see you pleased with someone else... earnest love, that is sin. I will show how I feel. The megaphone I tried shouting in was broken'.

I think that the approach taken to represent the meaning of the song of which inspired this is brilliant. I think the red string that's included in this shot could represent the entrapment one feels when in the situation the song's about, also, as the first line of the song states: 'now there's no where to go in the heart of this love'. The colours the model in this shot is wearing and the general dull background could also be linked to the lyrics of 'Love is War', and I think that the colours compliment each other in some ways, whilst the model's the main focus of the shot and stands out somewhat against the dreary scenery. I also love the dramatic sweep of Miku's hair; I think it definitely annunciates the dramatic of the original movie video and the general message being portrayed here, I think it's a lovely effect.

I can say that I've been through some sort of struggle when it comes to love and I can definitely relate to this song, I'm guessing a lot of other people can too, and I love the representation and understanding that's been shown in this photos. Absolutely amazing!
