Are you ready for a cuteness high? It’s time for the second group of semifinalists in the 2012 Mochimochi Photo Contest!

Along with the first 10 semifinalists, these photos wowed us with their devastating adorableness and astounding creativity. But don’t just look at them—let us know which are your favorites! We will narrow down the 20 semifinalists into 10 finalists based on the comments that you leave on this post, so be sure to make your voice heard. Then check back later this week when we’ll post the 10 final photos and have our final vote!
