Thanks for Entering your 2014 Winter Header Images!

Good day to you all.

Kaho-tan here (@gsc_kahotan).

Christmas Day is finally upon us!

My family actually celebrated yesterday, so Christmas for me is already over!

However, it looks like things are just only starting to begin elsewhere in the world! (Gazes into the distance)

Well…

Prior to this, we solicited “2014 Winter Header Image” entries via Kaho’s Post Office!

⇒ 【Enter Now!】Winter Twitter Header Image & Live Webcast Info etc.

And we received a whole lot of entries!

Thank you all so much!  (Bows deeply)
I made an announcement today via Twitter as well, but the Christmas themed header that I’ll be using both today and tomorrow will be this photo by Luka!

*Due to size limitations, this image will be trimmed for header use.


There’s nothing more wintery than Christmas! Rin-chan once again wanted to wait up to meet Santa this year, but it looks like sleep got the better of her…

 

That’s just too adorable!! ε=(。・д・。)

And the Nendoroid Dress-Up Pajamas were just perfect for this situation♥︎

But that’s not all!

From the day after Christmas, I’ll be using this photo by Leonoph as the header image.

 

*Due to size constraints, the image will be trimmed and text will be added for use as a header.

 

On my way to the Winter Wonder Festival in February of this year, I took a photo of this special attack.

 

Even with her pouty face, Snow Miku is just so cute♥︎

There was a big snow storm that Wonder Festival… I hope the weather is better next year…!

All of the photos we received were truly spectacular, so narrowing it down to these few entries was really hard work…!

Thank you all again so very much!!

Today we’ll be taking a look at a few more of the entries that were received.♪

* I’ve adjusted the brightness of some of these images before posting them.

It very rarely snows in Chiba Prefecture, so realizing that this was my chance I ran outside and got to shooting. 

But naturally, since it was snowing outside, it was so cold that my shutter hand was shivering – lol.

I’d also like to thank Miku for holding up in the cold weather as my model.

Handle Name:  Yukikon

Miku’s excitedly running around in the snow☆

I want to play with her in the fluffy snow, too ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─

My piano was always in the perfect lighting XD so I took a picture of her with the piano. Which make sense because she’s a singer!

HN : Nisha さん

To think that a picture of Magical Girl Snow Miku came from far-away Melbourne♡

I love the way the lighting in the photo brings to mind a calm winter’s day ♪

Nothing says winter like “snow.”

And if you’ve got snow, you’ve got “snow huts!”

Here you can see a Nendoroid-size snow hut that I made.

Handle Name:  Tsukintokkai Nanpyon

Nendoroids playing in the snow!  At this size, I’d want to try making a snow hut, too♪  And I love how Sakura Miku is there, too♥︎

Over here in Osaka, come winter a big duckie makes an appearance.

A duck you just can’t help but smile when you see.  If you even have the chance, you should go see it at least once.

Handle Name:  MAHOKONA

I’ve seen this duck on the news a hundred times!

I really like the how all the Black Rock Shooter characters are sitting comfortably around the kotatsu, unmoved despite the unusual atmosphere♪

━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─

“Whoa, it’s so cold!”

“Take that!”

Here they are having a bit of fun in the garden.  You’d expect nothing less from Hokkaido girls♪

Handle Name: Katou Kon

The narrative element to these poses is superb!!

And the ribbon in Miku’s hair is so cute♡ I want to try this myself… !

━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─
In addition to these, we received so many photos!

Thank you again so very much (´□`。)

But on the other hand…

Even if it isn’t looking wintery outside, maybe you plan to go look at some Christmas lights today or tomorrow…!

Or you want to go out for a photo shoot over winter vacation…!

And so on and so forth, I’m some of you out there have plans to take your photos in the near future.

That’s why we’re going to continue to accept entries for our winter themed header image!
