Continuing on with the Vocaloid series, here's the second set from Vocaloid, the super cute Rin and Len Kagamine! This pair was made with small feet in mind - the shoes are a size 6 in womens.
These two were sold as a two-for-one in the Vocaloid series. Meaning that for the same price, you got both Rin and Len's voice packages in the software! And they're so huggable and cute. It's not even funny. Normally I don't like yellow as a color... but somehow, they make it WORK.
For tasteful internet users, you should recognize their poses very clearly. That's right, they are doing the Caramelldansen. I still remember that trend like it just hit the raging masses. One small video triggered this massive user response to have all of anime do the dance. In tribute of that, Rin and Len are posed dancing as well. Aside from that, there's a lot of new stuff in these shoes that I've implemented. Things such as using an additional marker to my usual acrylics, and allowing some paint to run on the sole of the shoe.
Copic's Multiliner pens were used here to create the musical notes that run along the straps at the top of the shoe. There was a lot of juicy design in the top of the shoe, so I added to it by throwing musical notes for good measure. Don't try and read too much into the notes, they're there to be pretty. Or maybe there IS an actual song there? Hm...
I did the usual adding of names here too - Kagamine Rin / Len are placed at the side of the shoe that faces the outside, and to top it off, the pink paint runs down onto the sole of the shoe! It's a super light coat, so it shouldn't peel off when you're walking about. I'll have to experiment with painting on the sole more - while paint on the sole is a risque move, the aesthetics of the design moving from the shoe to the sole is awesome, I think.
And finally, the mandatory number of the Vocaloid is placed on the back.
My next pair will actually not be the 3rd Vocaloid. I have another project that needs to get done first before I can get Luka in. That, and Luka needs a suitable shoe to look pretty on, which... has not been found yet. But rest assured, she'll be here!
