Making a life-sized Hatsune Miku statue is not easy. What's more, it takes time. Lots and lots of time. This, for example, took six months' worth of work.

Hatsune Miku is a virtual idol who also stars in a series of Sega music games.

LEGO builder Chaos Brick documented the construction process. It's not step by step, or better yet, brick by brick, but the photos are a fascinating look at how the finished piece came together.

There's even the gratuitous panty shot. In LEGO.
