Beautiful Cicada! Please consider adding this to The Hoppers mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8096...
Yes it is a Cicada, unlike its bigger relatives, this one has a very fragile and soft body. It is abundant at the start of rainy season (june to july).

Definitely a cicada of some sort, but it's extremely unusual and I can't find reference of such a colorful cicada on the internet. Normally I'm able to get it right off the spot, but this fella seems to be a bit rarer. Hopefully someone else will help you narrow it down!
