Cosplayer Deanty M. Muchtiarsyah from Indonesia is a Hatsune Miku fan. Like a lot of Hatsune Miku fans, she cosplayed the Vocaloid diva at a recent convention. Her picture got posted on Facebook, and within a day had racked up nearly a thousand likes and hundreds of comments. Why? Because her Miku cosplay was in line with her Muslim beliefs.
If you think her cosplay is adorable, then you’re like most of the comments on Facebook. However, not everyone agreed with her altering Miku’s look, or her religion. The negative comments on the Hatsune Miku Facebook page range from ‘Ew,” to “Cosplay accuracy 0/10.” There are even a few bigoted remarks. Overwhelmingly, though, the comments compliment her cleverness in adapting the cosplay to her faith and the loveliness of the cosplay overall.
What do you guys think?
