Kahotan Post Office: Spring 2015 Edition (Part 3)

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m finally coming to the end of a very long string of cavity repairs at the dentist! It has taken a lot longer than I expected it to…

But anyway! Even though we’re now a good way into April, some chilly days from Winter are sometimes still cropping up! I think it’s time to make sure we’re well into Winter my taking a look at some more Spring Photos that have been sent in to me!!

As always, a huge thanks to everyone who sent in photos!! 

I know I asked for more photos of Spring in the previous Post Office post, but I never expected the number of photos that came through! I got more in a few days than ever before!! Unfortunately there are far too many for me to place them all on the blog, but I’ll be introducing some of my favourites over the course of two blogs!

Let’s get started!! 

* Lighting, etc. in certain photos have been slightly tweaked for the blog.

My old Miku is being a good leader and showing the New Miku her way around the cherry blossoms!

– momo201x

The way she is peering back with a big of a haughty expression captures the story so nicely! I wish I could see more of their adventures! ♡

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I took this photo at my garden, just want to show you all that Saber can enjoy springtime too. By the way I love your blog  d(-_^)

– Pshyga

Saber looks upon the flowers with a slight blush on her face! I wonder what she’s thinking…? (*´Д`)

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I found Sakura Miku enjoying some sake hidden behind some cherry blossoms, but it seems she was quite surprised to see me!

– Takurou

 

I can just hear her saying something like “Ah, you found me!” when I see that expression! It’s so cute! The focus and shadows of the blossoms also comes together so nicely for a really lovely situation!

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I found Miku-san enjoying a nap in the Spring weather…

 – Komugi-sama

She seems to be having a very relaxing snooze! I wish I could join her! (*_ _)。O0

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I am from Indonesia and sadly we do not have 4 seasons like Japan has and its hard for me to replicate the cherry blossom trees.

Best of luck for you and the whole GSC crew for bringing us more Nendoroids XD.

– Kappamike

Tsukiko-chan with a lovely smile and peace sign! ♡
There might not be four seasons in Indonesia, but I can feel the gentle warmth of Spring beaming from this cute photo! (。・ω・)ノ゙

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

A photo that captures Spring… how about ‘Night Cherry Blossoms’!
Snow Miku is waving goodbye to Sakura Miku as Winter changes into Spring! ♪

– Tsukin Tokkai / Nanpyon

Snow Miku’s lily of the valley is glowing?! Awesome!! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!
I hope your Mikus enjoyed their night time outing!

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I wanted to show Amatsukaze the cherry blossoms, so I took her out with me to the park! There was quite a strong wind on the day, so I was rather worried she was going to be blown off the tree, but I was happy with the result!

– Luka

Amatsukaze’s innocent smile let’s you know she was glad you took her out to play! It looks a bit like she is standing on tip-toes to reach up to the blossoms! Very cute! ♥︎ (。・ω・)ノ゙

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

Petite Miku and a tiny flower that may soon be covered by a city.

– Scientific Name: Shirohananakurogo

A fairy-like petite Miku out with nature! Such a heart-warming photo! ε=(。・д・。)

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

Hi! My name is Aye Thiri Thaw, from Myanmar. In Myanmar, Thingyan Festival is known as Water Festival for welcoming Myanmar New Year. Padauk is the theme Flower of Thingyan Festival. It blooms only once a year in April. In Japan, Sakura flower blooms only once a year so does Padauk. Sakura Kinomoto Nendoroid is the first Nendoroid that I collected in my life. Here is her expression when she saw Padauk.

– Aye Thiri Thaw

Sakura-chan with the Flower of Thingyan to welcome the New Year! ♡
A lovely photo from Aye Thiri Thaw all the way in Myanmar!

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

I thought I would apply to have my photo as your header again! (`・ω・´)ゞ This is a photo I took with Himesama while the blossoms were still in full bloom!

– Bouzu

The gentle and lovable princess matches with the pink blossoms so nicely! I should have joined you to enjoy the blossoms with her!! (/ω\)

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

This was actually taken last year! A photo of Miku experiencing Spring by finding a strawberry in the yard! It was such a strange shape that it actually looked rather cute!

– Matsu

Miku-san’s eyes are sparkling at the strangely shaped strawberry! (●´ω`●)
I wonder if she ate it after this photo!

*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:*☆*:;;;:

What a lovely selection of photos!!

Once again a big thank you to everyone for your Spring Photos!

You can really tell how much people love their favorite characters through their photography!! It’s always such a pleasure to see!  I will still be doing one more blog on the Spring photos, in which I will decide on my new header for my Twitter account!

But for those of you who are waiting for the next theme, I’m now looking for photos for my Pre-Summer Header!

 

ヽ(・ω・´(`・ω・´)ノ`・ω・)ノ

The theme this time around is…

‘Male Figures’!! (・∀・)

Most items from GSC are of female characters, but more and more we are increasing the male ratio due to the high demand! For those of you who already own some handsome male Nendoroids, send me some photos showing them off in your favorite poses!!
