this and this. Since there is no official artist for Miku, there have been a wide variety of interpretations of Miku. Including a cosplay from my friend Mikari who did a cosplay of Miku cosplaying as Alicia from Valkyria Chronicles.
Hatsune Miku is the second generation of the Vocaloid series of characters. The original ones are Meiko (female) and Kaito (male). After Miku came the third generation of Vocaloids Rin (Female), Len (male), and Luka (female). Like Miku, they are sampled off of well known voice actresses and actors.
Miku is ubiquitous in the anime world, you will see her cosplay all over anime conventions. She was the figure used on a BMW Z4 E86 on the Super GT during 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Team Cox used her on their Porche 996 GT3-R. Toyota recently revealed that Hatsune Miku will be its official spokesperson for the Toyota Corolla in the United States.
Her Concert will be on July 2nd in the Nokia Theatre, it will be a day to remember.
