At a demonstration by vehicle wrap company YMG1 at itasha exhibition Moe-Haku 2010, we've got our first chance to witness the process of itasha-making.
Here's some videos and pics of how a sexy Chevrolet Corvette Convertible was turned into a Hatsune Miku itasha, totally gorgeous in a different kind of way.

Fitting the huge sticker to curved surface must require a great deal of concentration.
The excess sheet is cut off after the decal is affixed.
Smaller decals are cut out before applying.
By the end of the day the Corvette was virtually unrecognisable. Here are some pics we found of the finished car on ASCII.jp.
