One of the biggest attractions to grace Hokkaido’s annual Snow Festival has undoubtedly been the Snow Miku sculpture that goes up every year. The Digital Diva makes her appearance in the form of a gorgeous snow sculpture, that attracts visitors from around the globe.
Since her first appearance in 2012, Snow Miku has become such a draw that she’s taken on an identity of her own, among fans. It’s not uncommon to see the character appear in countless pieces of merchandise, from figures, to cars.
I kid you not, freaking cars.
Anyway, with Snow Miku making her 2015 début next month, we’re starting to see character goods start to make their way to retailers. Volks, makers of the popular Dollfie series of ball-joint dolls, unveiled their Snow Miku Dollfie Dream doll earlier today.

The doll, which costs a whopping 65,000 yen ($548.75), will be available for pre-order starting on February 7. Snow Miku’s doll will be sculpted by the same person that handled 2013’s Hatsune Miku Dollfie. It will be dressed in a silver winter-themed outfit (mittens included!), and built to the same standards that all Dollfie dolls are held to.
Plus, it’s just adorable. Whether it’s $548 adorable is in the eye of the beholder, but that’s always a given on matters like these.
