A rocket-riding Playboy Bunny that can be found, usually as a playable character, in several of Konami's Parodius (Parody + Gradius = Parodius) space shooter video games. Hikaru is generally accompanied by her pallette-swapped (blond hair, red outfit) look-alike Akane. While, story-wise, a unique character, Akane's practical reason for existence is to differentiate players who wish to use the same character in a simultaneous two-player game. Hikaru's (and Akane's) first appearance was in the 1994 Gokujou Parodius: Kako no Eikou wo Motomete (Fantastic Parodius: Pursue the Glory of the Past) installment of the series. Oddly enough, Hikaru also serves as a boss character (many times her usual size and dressed in a Tokimeki Memorial Kirameki High School sailor uniform) in Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius (Chatting Parodius Live!). Like most Gradius spacecraft, Hikaru can be continuously upgraded with speed-ups, missiles (2-way hawkwind type), double guns (tail gun type), lasers (boomerang shot type), options (fixed formation type), and a shield, the latter two of which sport cute white rabbit head designs.

I'm with chaos zero! It's crazy to think how much detail there is to this work, and how small it actually is! You may give us a tutorial how you work with some cool tricks and tips, but your tutorials couldn't give us your surgeon's hands!
Really cool!

I'm begging you to make either a picture or a video tutorial one day. Your customs are so cool and I tried working with paper mache, but it didn't work out too well. It's amazing how much work goes into these tiny customs of yours.
