Kahotan Post Office: August 2015 – Part 2

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The 25th of every month is pudding day! You can’t not eat pudding on pudding day!! I prefer my pudding to be set well rather than too sloppy!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at some more of the photos that were sent in to me for my…

August 2015 Twitter Header Image!!

You can find the previous part over here:
Kahotan Post Office: August 2015 – Part 1

The theme for July and August was ‘Summer‘! ☆ 

As usual a rather simple and very open topic, but I got all the photos I was hoping for! Everyone was able to portray the Summer through their figures so perfectly!! ♥︎

A big thank you to everyone who send in their entries!! Unfortunately I can’t feature every single photo that was sent in due to lack of time and space, but I promise I enjoyed looking though each and every one of your photos!

Anyway, let’s take a look at some more lovely photos! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Come Together, play together!

– Sakurazawa

Danboard and Miku playing in the water together! ٩( ‘ω’ )و
The water spraying up around them really makes it seem like they are splashing around!

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

Here in the uk, summer means it’s time to enjoy your motorbike, so I thought this was fitting.

– rdavisipad

Bike Miku with her cat-eared helmet and sporty outfit captured in an epic pose rounding the corner on her bike! Even the course has been recreated and the light effect on her bike looks so realistic!!

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

As soon as Noel arrived at my house we went out for a walk in the sun! This was taken out at a sunflower field near my home. Everyone take care during these hot months!

– Under B

Recreating a scene directly out of the anime series! What an ideal situation for the adorable Noel! The smiling expression suits her so nicely! ♪

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

see a flower in my hair, whether by wearing it I’ve seen kawaii ? (/ω\)

– bamsmiku

\ Kawaii yo!! /

Such a lovely set of colors and even flowers in her hair make for a beautiful Miku-san! What a lovely smile she has on her face! ♥︎

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

\\ Raku-sama, How do I look? //  ٩(ノ≧ڡ≦)

– Allgroassai

I think I should turn this photo into a pin-up poster! It’s perfect! ♥︎ That mischievous look on her face together with her white swimsuit and sparkling ocean in the background! Lovely!

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

singapore is a hot country which is summer all year round

one of the places to cool down is the singapore river

– boss

Kongo cooling down by the Singapore river! The buildings in the background make for quite a unique but very suiting background for Kongo and her ship parts! ♪

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

Miku was performing live on a sunflower stage so I snapped some shots of her! The heat is really something this Summer! Be sure to drink lots to avoid heatstroke!

– Yumemiya

Miku-san under the glaring Summer sky finishing off a song with a cute wink! ?? Outdoor performances have something about them that really gets me feeling excited! I want to head under the sun with her and cheer along! ♪

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

Sonico cooling off by the falls. This was taken in the fountain behind my home.

– Neil

This photo looks like it should have come out of one of Sonico’s photo collection albums! She is shining in more ways than one!! (´□`。)

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

The theme for my photo is ‘The End of Summer’.
“I know you wanted to play a little longer, Rensouhou-chan…”

– Risuko

I feel a little sad looking at this photo… ・°・(ノД`)・°・
The darkend tone really adds to the feels… Don’t worry Rensouhou-chan, we can come back next Summer!!

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

A bikini model photo taken by some sand dunes at a resort!

–  Takunoyuki

Sakura Miku trying on a very suiting swimsuit for some sexy shots at the beach! Driftwood, the sea and the sand… definitely a full page photo material for any bikini magazine! (●´ω`●)ゞ

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

Hello from England!

My nendoroid petite Tsukasa took a trip to my Nan’s garden.

She liked the plants by the pond!

– Little One

She’s like a little fairy surrounded by all the lovely greenery! Going outside with figures and giving them some fresh air can lead to some lovely discoveries!

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

Hiei: Admiral! Let’s go out for a bit, the weather is lovely!

– Ooga

A straw hat, net and cage for catching some Summer bugs!! It suits her rather well!! I’m sure Hiei enjoyed her Summer day out with the Admiral! っ(。・ω・)ノ゛

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

The first thing that came to my mind for ‘Summer’ was a camp and barbecue with friends! ^^

Sheryl: “Ah~♪”
Ranka: “Yummy! Kira! ☆”
Hozuki: “…”
Mikasa: “I brought watermelon, ice-cream and snacks!”
Miku: “Leeeeeeeeeeek!!!!”

Going out to get together like this makes for a fun Summer! ♪

– Tomo

Tomo was the photographer of the adorable Sheryl and Ranka from last time around! Back again this time capturing a very exciting looking barbecue! There are so many things to see!! (*´Д`)=з

Plus there was even one more photo from Tama that I want to feature!

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

One character that fits perfectly with the Bon Lantern Festival is Hozuki!! He looks so lovely even in Nendoroid form that no matter what photos I take of him they always come out looking amazing! This one was one of my favorites to take! ♪ The lights around him make use of actual dried ‘hozuki’ (Winter cherries). 

– Tomo

The gentle light surrounding him in this photo makes for such an amazing, mysterious atmosphere!! The hand-made lights really add to the effect too!!

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

let’s take a break and have fun at the beach!

Honoka, Kotori and Nico chan are waiting for you to jump in…

~ureshikute tanoshii ne summer day~

– Kanarinana

Such a smart idea to remove the bottom of the bodies to make it look like the girls are in water!! I would never have thought of this!! I might steal it for myself sometime though! ☆

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

Sakura chan thank you for this ice cream~~

Nagi-chan and an ice-cream vendor Sakura-chan standing together for a very cute photo! ★

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

Nothing reminds me of Summer more than the ocean! (っ´ω`c)

– Dakeusa

Deep Sea Miku-san! The darker tones of the photo really bring out a ‘Deep Sea atmosphere as well! The use of shadows is also really nice… I wish I could see more!

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

The warmth and cheer of Summer,
The charm and cuteness of figures…

These photos were all so different and yet all captured Summer for me in figure form!!
