Kahotan Post Office: Winter & Figures 2017 Edition – Part 1

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I have recently become quite addicted to refrigerated chocolate cake! The cold chocolate tastes so nice in a warmed up room!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at some of the photos that fans have been sending in to become my next Twitter header!! A big thank you to everyone who sent in photos! The theme this time around was…

Winter and Figures!

Since last weekend the Winter cold has really been hitting Japan quite hard!! In 2016 I was beginning to think 2016 would be an easy Winter to get through but it’s been freezing ever since the New Year! It also seems people are catching colds left and right – be sure to stay warm and protect yourself from and colds!!

I received a huge selection of photos to warm up my heart during these cold Winter days, so today I’m going to be sharing them with everyone!! A big thanks to everyone who sent in photos!!! Today I’m going to be taking a look at some of them!

The sparkly Winter scenery gives a rather romantic atmosphere! It looks like Miku-san has arrived in a snowy Christmas town on her skiis! ♥

I saw on the Taiwan version of the blog you were looking for photos, so I decided to send in one of my Christmas creations!

A little performance on Christmas! It’s lovely to see characters from different series come together! I can just imagine the lovely melody they are making!

北方棲姬的溫馨聖誕夜!

Photographer: 扉冊

The adorable Abyss ship! Hoppo-chan on the Holy Night! I love little details and the placing of the accessories to help bring out the Christmas spirit! The Abyssal plane peeking out from the side of the tree is also a lovely touch! ★

I took a photo of Snow Miku during the light-up event at Odori Park in Sapporo. At the time the snow hadn’t quite piled up yet and the temperature was still in the positives… that said it was still rather cold out! As soon as I got my hands out to take the photo they felt like they would freeze.

That said, I had a lovely time taking photos of the event together with my Snow Miku! Some very nice memories to look back on! 

Photographer: Souta

It looks like Snow Miku is casting a spell to create the beautiful lights! Taking photos outdoors in Winter is always a battle against the cold – but it means you can get these lovely photos filled with the element of Winter!!

I picked up Nendoroid Kashima-san the other day and she has decided to prepare a Christmas party. It looks like she has a got a little treat for the kitty that needs to be kept a secret from everyone else!

I love being in this position in a photo where it looks like you are listening in on a secret conversation! The details on all the little accessories are simply amazing – the atmosphere of the warm home really comes out beautifully!

This is actually a photo from last year, but I always think of Christmas for Winter themes so I thought I would send this photo in! 

Photographer: Eien

The fluffy decorations underneath have a blueish image that looks a bit like the ocean which really brings out the atmosphere for Hoppo-chan! (灬ºωº灬)

The lighting also makes the airships and Hoppo-chan look even cuter than normal!
