Kahotan Post Office: Summer & Figures 2016 Edition

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

It might be hot outside today, but I’m rather chilly here in the air-conditioned offices today! I’m wearing a hoodie in the middle of Summer!! :;(∩´﹏`∩);:

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the photos sent in for my next Twitter header change! ⇒ Summer Twitter Header Image!

The theme this time around is…
Summer & Figures!!

Thank you to everyone who sent in their photos!! They are always such a pleasure to see in my inbox!

Just looking at the photos I could often hear the cicadas crying… I could smell the sea and feel the warmth of the sunlight through everyone’s photos!

As I have already announced on Twitter, my best photo this time around was this photo from Kaede Sakurazawa!!

Rin: “This feels so amazing!!”
Hanayo: “Someone help me~!”
━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─━─

Rin-chan out enjoying the Summer by the sea with Hanayo by her side looking a little stressed in the sand! The contrast between Rin and Hanayo’s personality comes out so nicely in the photo, and I love the fact that you decided to create this in Nendoroid size!! (〃∇〃)

Thank you for the lovely, playful photo!

I’d love to put everyone’s photos up on the blog, but I don’t have the space or the time… so here are some others that really caught my eye! I’m sorry if your photo didn’t make it onto the blog! I promise I have looked through and enjoyed them all!! (。・ω・)ノ゙

“Public Service Announcement”

Always play or watch in a well-lit room, three meters away from the television.
Summer’s here! So what better thing to do than laze around all day just watching telly or playing through your backlog of games.

Aaah!! Look behind you!!
Horror themes are often linked to the Summer so it suits nicely! This photo shows in a comical way the ‘scariness’ of Summer! (。☌ᴗ☌。)

I went down to enjoy the green of Summer at the local park with Sakura-san. Nature really is beautiful in the Summer!

– Suneiru


Sakura-san with her hair blowing in the wind! She looks so beautiful!! Places with lots of green also often have nice shade which make for the perfect place to sit and relax on a hot Summer day! ε=(。・д・。)

Nendoroid Levi, Nendoroid Levi: Cleaning Ver., Nendoroid Yukimura Sanada enjoying some delicious Summer fruits!

July and August are the months for watermelon and melon, Yukimura went and harvested them and Levi cute them up for everyone! You can see just how happy Yukimura is to see the cut melon!! Or perhaps he was just impressed with Levi’s cutting skills! Cleaning Levi was invited by Yukimura on the way in and is just standing on the side watching over the cutting.

After this they all enjoyed the watermelon and melon together, Yukimura went back to his training and Levi went back to cleaning up.

– Tsunonigauri

A whole story playing out surrounded by delicious looking melons and water melons! It’s so much fun to create various different situations and then store them in photos!! ₍₍ (ง ˙ω˙)ว ⁾
I look forward to seeing more photos from you in the future, Tsunonigauri!

I took it near our local lake. It’s a lovely place to enjoy the sun during summer.

– Els


That smile really shows how much she is enjoying the Summer! I’d be happy to take her to the lake every day if she always smiled like this for me! ♪

I took Yukata Miku with me to a temple in Uji known for its hydrangeas – Mimurotoji! It really was just a sea of beautiful hydrangeas!

– Under B



I also tried the mixture of Snow Miku and hydrangeas and it looked a lot better than I expected so I took some photos of her too!


Under B sent in two different Miku & Hydrangea photos, but I couldn’t decide which one I liked so I decided to add both of them! The deep, gentle colors of the flowers really match with Miku nicely! ♡

Designing idol costumes with Kotori-chan! Kotori seems concerned about her design; She doesn’t know how talented she is!

– Hanosari


A lovely photo designing costumes with Kotori-chan! I would love to sit by her side and help think up motifs and colors for different idols before the big concert!! (´□`。)

This was taken during one of the previous WonFes events at the GSC booth! It’s nearly time for WonFes!!

– Kon Kato


We had a Nendoroid photo booth section at one of our booths in the past! We’ve probably passed by each other at the event at some time or another! I love seeing the combination of Snow Miku and the sea!!

A beautiful goddess brings summer to the world with her holy arrow and banishes the chilly spring and winter (^0^)!!!!

– Squidmiku


I absolutely loved Squidmiku’s comment! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾
I’m not great at English, but I manged to understand this and it really creates an image in the mind they plays out a lovely story through the photo! Thank you!

Nico managed to find a break in the rainy season to do her washing! My washing always piles up during the rainy season and I often wish I could go outside and hand it up with a smile on my face like this! (˶′◡‵˶)

– Luka


The rare day with clear skies during the rainy season is the kind of relief you can only feel during this season! It seems that Nico-nii quite enjoys the simple days in life! (。・ω・)ノ゙

“What I love the most with nendoroids, it’s taking them outside and watch them becoming alive ! This picture has been taken on a French island named Ile d’Aix on a sunny morning…”

– MrTa


A miniature world built for Nendoroids with a full background and all sorts of little accessories to boot! The picture not only shows dedication to an amazing photo, but also shows your love for the Nendoroid series!! ♡

Took the picture in my backyard because Yoshino is so cute you just can’t take a picture of her!

– Kallen

Yoshino with an adorable upward gaze as she hides behind a couple of leaves…! The mysterious, fairy-like charm is so adorable!! (●´ω`●)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

I hope you all enjoyed the photos as much as I did!

Thanks again to everyone who sent in any photos! I may be in a rather chilly office at the moment, but all the photos made me wish I could head out and enjoy the Summer a little bit more!
