スマイル美人 (MINI Clip) Trivia

January 10, 2018

– I filmed this on January 5th.

– As I said in the video description, I asked my followers on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook what color came to mind when they heard the opening for this song (0:07 to 0:20). I got twelve votes total, and blue and orange tied for first with three votes each.

– For the skirt, I just cut strips of blue and orange fabric and pinned and taped them to a plain black skirt.

– I think it’s been a while since I wore my hair up like that (probably because it’s sometimes kind of painful to take out XD orz).

– I would always do the move just before the chorus differently; I actually liked my version better, but I did the original one for the video. XD

– I had a good take for the side where I have my hair up… but then I noticed that I had messed up the timing for the very last move, so I had to redo the whole thing. orz

That’s all for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading! =D

READY!! (Dance Cover) Trivia

January 1, 2018

– I filmed this on Christmas Eve, so this was technically my last dance of 2017 even though it wasn’t uploaded then.

– This is my seventh iDOLM@STER dance cover, and it’s the sixth time I’ve used one for a New Year’s Day video.

– The long vest thing I’m wearing was originally a men’s dress shirt. I bought it on clearance because it had a grid pattern and I wanted to decorate it with a video game sprite. XD As you can see, I used the Fighter sprite from the first Final Fantasy~. =) My whole outfit was based around matching up with this vest.

– The background and menu screens for the intro and outro were also inspired by FFI (the original; not any of the ones with the fancy graphical upgrades).

– My socks say “READY SET GO” on them. … I thought it was fitting. XD

– I actually used my new video editor to put this together, but there was a bit of a lag in a couple parts of the video, so I went back to my old editor for this video. (^_^”)

– The sound effects for the menu (the pop and the whistle) were originally from my third blooper video back in 2011 (before blooper videos were a semi-regular thing and before they were split into dance and vlog bloopers).

I suppose that’s about it. Thanks for watching and reading~! Happy New Year~! ^__^

~2017 Wrap-Up Post~

December 31, 2017

For this breakdown, “Darenimo Naisho” does not count as a Hello! Project dance cover, but the “Morning Musume 60’s Girls Pop Medley” does.

– I did a total of thirty-six dances in 2017.
One of these dances was an original choreography.
Eleven of these dances were MINI Clips.
Three of these dances were non-Hello! Project dances.
One of these dances was part of my “Agent 36” series.
– Of the thirty-three H!P dances, eleven were either album or coupling tracks.
Two dances were medleys, one of which was my longest video ever.
Three dances were ones that had already been done previously.
Seven dances were split-screened or had a split-screened section.
– For each H!P group, I had the following number of dances – Morning Musume (any year) = 10 (including both medleys); Berryz Koubou = 2; C-ute = 5; S/mileage/ANGERME = 1; Juice=Juice = 1; Country Girls = 1; Buono! = 3; Kobushi Factory = 1; Tsubaki Factory = 1; misc. H!P (Minimoni., 3nin Matsuri, CAT’S EYE 7, Matsuura Aya, High-King, Douyou Pops) = 8

Just like last year, I really enjoyed the MINI Clips~. ^__^ Some of my favorite outfits include “Mukidashi de Mukiatte,” “Ran Ra Run ~Anata ni Muchuu~,” “Minimoni。 Jankenpyon!” (just for its accuracy), “Iroppoi Jirettai,” “I NEED YOU,” “Sexy Cat no Enzetsu,” and “Kioku no Meiro.”

Favorite dances? Hmm… I’m really proud of putting that massive medley together~. =) My original choreography for this year wasn’t bad, but I can’t help but wonder if I’ll never like any of my choreographies more than the one I did for “RENAI WARS” back in 2015. XD orz

It was SO satisfying to finally dance to “Iroppoi Jirettai,” “Happy Summer Wedding,” and “Ne~e?” I’ve wanted to do them forever (especially the last two). Next year, I hope to get a few more long awaited dance covers off my list~. ^_~

As far as non-dance videos… to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of vlogging. (^_^”) The thing I like most about my vlogs is actually the blooper videos that they end up giving me. XD I’ll probably keep doing Surimu Stories, but I won’t be vlogging as much as I have over the past couple of years. I have a couple hundred dances to get done after all~.

It almost seems silly to ask, but how about all of you? Which of my 2017 dances were your favorites? Favorite outfits? How about your favorite of my non-dance videos in 2017?

2017… I got to do fun things like go to wrestling shows for the first time, but various incidents throughout the year made this a very tough year for me. Let’s see if 2018 is a little brighter~. ^__^ Happy New Year~! ♥

Surimuchan [Now] #26 – December 2017

December 31, 2017

Not a lot of fancy colors for this one; I hurt my arm/hand somehow, so being on the computer isn’t the best idea. Ahaha… orz

Entertainment
– I’ve recently gotten back into old-school musicals since I watched Holiday Inn last week. Fred Astaire, Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby… so entertaining! ♥ As for music… well the songs from some of those old musicals, particularly from “Hans Christian Andersen” starring Danny Kaye (which I haven’t even seen yet!). Justin Timberlake’s “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!” has been getting stuck in my head a lot lately, too. My sleeping music of choice has been the Bravely Default OST (so many memories!!!! TT_TT).

Purchases
– I don’t think I bought too much besides Christmas gifts… though I did get some clearance AJ Styles button boots from the WWE Shop last week. XD Oh, wait, I got some beauty stuff from YesStyle as well as a special outfit that I plan to use for at least one dance (I’d like to use it for two, but I don’t know how well it would go with the second dance I had in mind… orz). Ooh, and Morning Musume’s latest album and PINK CRES’s first album… okay, so I guess I got a few things. (^_^”)

Happenings
– Not much besides work… Christmas Eve was pretty fun because a bunch of us played that dice game for presents. My mom and one of my brothers kept taking the same present from each other and it ended up being two bags of instant potatoes. XDD We had to watch one the dog of one of our neighbors for a couple of days, which was… eventful? He was pretty nosy… and he loves squeaky toys. XD It was different, because we’ve always had big dogs, and the dog we watched was a Westy.

Plans
– I’m currently working on three MINI Clips and a full dance (well, I have one of the MINI Clips learned; I just need to film it). None of these four dances are A-side songs! =O I’ve also wanted to film a few Surimu Stories for a while… I’ve been working on some new Etsy products, too~. I’m probably going to make some more changes to my channel and/or social media presence next year: not as many vlogs (at least not long ones), no more recap posts on this blog, not sure if I should keep doing Surimuchan [Now] posts… meh.

Recommendation
– Fidget Cubes~. I said on Instagram that the side with the switch was my favorite, and I still really like it, but the spinny wheel side has grown on me quite a lot~. I also like the clicky rollerball.

I feel kind of bad for forgetting to write a Christmas blog post (I had to work at 5 AM the next day… orz), so I’ll say it here: Merry (Belated) Christmas, and Happy New Year~! ^__^ Thanks for reading~!
