Outrage at Singer’s “Inadequate Miku Cosplay”

Chinese and Japanese Vocaloid fans alike have been outraged at a Chinese singer whose on-stage Hatsune Miku cosplay was “an insult to Miku fans” by way of its sheer sloppiness.

A September concert by Chinese songstress Moraynia (or Liu Xin) has been widely derided on Sina Weibo for donning an “inferior” Hatsune Miku outfit, with fans moaning that she was “insulting cosplay” and “not even trying to look like Miku.”

The video:

The fact that she apparently took only 4 minutes to change into the costume and even omitted the holy twintails “because they got in the way of the dancing” has them particularly annoyed:

“I cannot believe she omitted the twintails!”

“That isn’t Miku’s costume, and that isn’t Miku’s hair. What is this, Chinese Miku?”

“Just playing dress-up is not cosplay!”

“Did they even bother getting Crypton’s permission for this…”

“It looks nothing like her.”

“What would anyone expect from China but a cheap rip-off?”

“Quite funny that she ditched the ‘tails because they got in the way of her dancing…”

    I sense underlying intent, as if to downplay the image of Hatsune Miku.

    Those people who care have too much time on their hands. An obscure foreign singer on the other side of the world gives a crappy concert. So what?

    Maybe it isn't a miku cosplay... just a funny clothing and a blue wig

    I wonder if this is really supposed to be a Miku cosplay. Looks more like she simply copied elements of Miku's for her own stage outfit ...

    Really? With failKaito on one side and failLuka on the other? You really think this *isn't* supposed to be a Vocaloid cosplay?

    I don't see what the big deal is, everyone knows that Chinese knockoffs never resemble the real thing.

    Not true, I picked up four random things on my desk and only one was made in china...
    A jar of spices, made in EU.
    An ink bottle, made in germany.
    Pack of batteries, made in EU.
    And only the clown nose I got from somewhere is made in China.

    I also picked up four random things: a speaker from my laptop, a coffee cup, a remote control for the DVD player and an electric razor. The cup was made in Thailand. The other three in China.

    Your pack of batteries might be made in EU, but the component inside your batteries is very likely to be made in china

    three words - L.O.L. I'm laughing my ass off right now at how effective this PR-campaign turned out. I mean - people (including those actually knowing what they're talking about) keep saying how "this isn't Miku", so basically this is a hype about how "someone random" put on a "random costume"....and people scream "it's not Miku"? I applaud the troll that was the first to say it IS her.

    yeah, I don`t understand this. it`s not the case that just one detail is different, EVERYTHING is different. so now if someone uses an accessory in that color it is automatically labelled "a Miku cosplay"?!?

    But they may also be the Katsuras and Tasuke Aoha.

    Hilarious that if you omitting the 'twin-tails' suddenly it's not Miku. Is it that weak of a character that recognition is based on one feature alone?

    I think it's a combination of things.
    If I recall correctly, there are plenty of non twin-tails Miku designs out there that are immediately recognizable.

    Just goes to show how bad this "cosplay" is.

    Maybe if the wig didn't look like a bloated melting afro. It doesn't even need to be twin tails.

    Hmmm, I dont know. It may be likely that her or her producer is a miku fan. However, except the color of her custom, I don't see anything like miku. Calling it a knock off is a bit over reacted. Like I said, Chinese knock off bunch of crap and we all know it. There are also some Chinese originated design that we omitted (on purpose or not). Such as the dual sim card smartphone exists long ago( approx more than 10 yrs) and the Chinese are the 1st designed and made them. Also the smart watch that can even make calls were made by them 8 yrs ago long before any stupid Samsung smart watch. They even wrote their own buggy OS with linux before any android device exist. Well, whatever, people will keep ignoring this and the next time a few Chinese dude rip something off and then all Chinese will be labeled as bunch of a holes only know how to copy like they have a choice of government and can force the office to do something about it. Chinese innovators also suffer badly and they are usually the 1st to get hit by this. As a Chinese engineer, I can say there are young innovative and enthusiastic people in China develops stuff that are out of totally new ideas. It is just the higher up are bunch of short sighted, fucked up money grabbing scums that undermining innovations and the true development of the country. Well, what do you expect anyway, it is communist. As long as the short term GDP maintain high, they don't give a shit.

    This is a joke right? The worst insult to the whole world are the "Miku" fans themselves. That singer is hot and she's doing a big favor to those weirdos, they should be praising her instead of insulting her... Well, that's exactly why they're a bunch of weird morons in the first place.

    I think the anon at 02:05 was pointing out that this girl is putting on a live show and doing her best to please the crowd, whereas Miku is just a program and doesn't give a shit.

    A Miku without twintails is not a Miku I know. This is blasphemy.
