涙の色 (Dance Cover) Trivia

May 13, 2018

– This was filmed on April 7th.

– I was going to wear jeans like Nakky did, but I don’r own any jeans that are skinny enough to fit into boots comfortably. XD orz

– My hair might look a bit strange… I just had a few pieces sectioned off and twisted back before pinning them. (^_^”)

– The dance break took the longest to learn… probably because it kept switching angles in the dance shot. (-_-*)

– The opening/transition moves are my favorite~. =D

– This was my 700th YouTube video (including Private and Unlisted videos)! (If we’re only counting Public videos, though, it’s video #671.)

– Last year’s Mother’s Day dance was “Iroppoi Jirettai” and 2015’s was “Black Butterfly”… I’m sensing a pattern. XD (2016’s was “FOREVER LOVE” because it had some faster moves.)

That’s really about it for this one. Thank you for watching and reading~! =D Happy Mother’s Day, Mom~!! ♥

I always let my mom request a dance for Mother’s Day; this year, she chose °C-ute’s “Namida no Iro.” Here’s the outfit I’ll be wearing for that dance cover~.

~Update 66~

April 27, 2018

Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been working on (or what I will be working on).

May 13th – Namida no Iro [Completed]
May 21st – Surimuchan’s Dance Bloopers 4 [Completed]
May 23rd – Sou ja nai [Learned, not filmed]
June 15th – Ee ja nai ka Ninja nai ka [Started learning]

There may be a MINI Clip or a Surimu Story thrown in there somewhere (since those are some pretty big gaps between uploads), but I don’t currently have any ready. (^_^”) As always, videos listed in these posts that are not completed could be pushed back or dropped completely.

That’s all~. ^_^

Definitely…

April 21, 2018

Some dances I definitely want to do and why…

Morning Musume – Resonant Blue
– This was the first Morning Musume song that came out after I became a knowledgeable fan. That is, “Mikan” came out shortly after I found the group and their music, but I didn’t know who anyone was, and I didn’t know most of the songs. “Resonant Blue” was the first single I got to look forward to; I even burned a radio rip (including intro and outro from… I believe Gaki-san and Kamei) onto a CD! XD

Berryz Koubou – Munasawagi Scarlet
– I usually credit this song (and Matsuura Aya’s “Ne~e?”) with pulling me into the rest of Hello! Project. I really loved the original, but there was also a remix someone had made (I think it was called the APX KlubMix… and I believe it’s still on YouTube!) that I also really loved. ♥ Plus, I love the dance break! I re~~~ally want to dance to this! I’ve even been gathering items to make a somewhat accurate outfit~! =D

°C-ute – Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko
– Though this one came out after I started dancing, I still haven’t learned it… (^_^”)> The music video is one of my favorites from °C-ute (anyone who knows me knows that I like bright colors). Besides that, I always found the song to be a lot of fun~. =)

S/mileage – Eighteen Emotion
– This is probably one of my favorite singles from S/mileage (or ANGERME for that matter)~! I’m not sure what it is about it that I like so much; I don’t even remember the music video… just the dance shot. (^_^”)> It’s high-energy with a catchy sound, so I’d really like to dance to it~.

Minimoni. – Lucky Cha Cha Cha!
– So nostalgic! This was one of my absolute favorites early on as a Hello! Project fan, and I still really love it. The video, the song, the dance… love it~! ♥ Fun fact: this was supposed to be part of the “Minimoni Madness! Dance Set” from last year, but I didn’t have time to finish it by the deadline. orz

Morning Musume ’16 – The Vision
– I’ve thought for a long time about what dance I want to do for my “graduation” from dancing (when the time comes), and this one has always been in the top three (along with a redo of “ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!” and various other songs rotating in and out for the third option). The song is beautiful; it makes me cry, but it also makes me smile. The dance is unique (and the music video was absolutely gorgeous). I really want to dance to it when the time comes… though, who knows? Maybe something else will come out before I’m done, and I’ll choose that instead. What I mean is, don’t freak out whenever I do upload this dance. XD (… Not sure who I’m talking to… I think people mostly come here for my dance tutorial downloads anymore… orz)

Anyway, I just wanted to make it known that those six dances are ones that I’m particularly looking forward to doing~. ^_^ ♥

江戸の手毬唄Ⅱ (Dance Cover) Trivia

April 21, 2018

– This was filmed on April 2nd.

– I got the costume from YesStyle (though I don’t believe it’s available anymore T_T)~.

– I pinned hair ties to the inside edges of my sleeves so that I could wear them around my wrists and control the sleeves a little more. (^_^”) … Though I really love how the sleeves look, they were still a bit bothersome to dance in. orz

– The black socks look kind of dumb, I’ll admit, but I needed to wear them to slide more easily on the carpet. (^_^”) orz

– I did quite a few takes for this one. I had it done at one point, but then I noticed a couple small mistakes that I wanted to fix, so I did it again. (Good think I hadn’t changed out of that outfit.)

– I like how sharp the arm extension around 1:02 turned out~. ^__^

– After so many takes, the lunge right away in the beginning was killer. XD

– I had to hunt around quite a bit to find performances in which I could see how to do a few of the moves. o_o

I think that’s it for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

I lo~~ve those sleeves, but I hate trying to dance with them flying around. XD I’ll be uploading this on April 21st. Please look forward to it~! ^__^

I know (MINI Clip) Trivia

April 15, 2018

– This was filmed on April 5th.

– The hardest part of the dance was mostly just trying to figure out exactly what they were doing (because most performances focused on Ayaya, who didn’t do as much dancing).

– Figuring out the outfit was almost more difficult than the dance. XD I wanted to use that blue hair extension, so I tried to base the outfit around that.

– My favorite part of the dance is during the line “ちっちゃく!OH YEAH!”. =D

That’s all for this one! Not much to it… Thank you for watching and reading! ^__^

風に吹かれて (Dance Cover) Trivia

April 6, 2018

– This was filmed on March 18th.

– I bought that shirt (on sale, of course XD) specifically for this dance. It was just a plain, kind of loose-fitting, light yellow shirt, but I cut it up and added ribbons to pretty it up~. The ribbons were not only to make it fit better but also to add a fluttery effect to go with the “blown by the wind” theme of the song. =)

– I actually really rather like how the outfit turned out~. I’ve always like draping ribbons (so I’m kind of happy about that being a trend right now… though it might already be going away XD orz), and I’ve also always liked cold-shoulder tops (which was a trend not too long ago as well). I thought the colors went well together, too (they were supposed to kind of match Kanatomo’s from the original video).

– I had this dance mostly learned… I can’t even remember when… a couple years ago, maybe? But then I got distracted working on other dances and never did film this (much like the situation with “Heroine ni Narou ka!”). (^_^”)

– I started practicing this one in early February (around the time I filmed a lot of my dances for March), but I had to stop for a while because I was getting a pain in my foot that felt similar to the time I had tendonitis… and I didn’t want to deal with that. O_O

– The arm movements from around 2:50 to 2:53 were also killer on my shoulders, which haven’t been in the best condition lately. orz

– My hair kept getting in my face, but I didn’t want to tie it back because, again, “blown by the wind” was the theme, so I wanted the free movement.

I think that’s it…? Yes, I think that’s it. Thank you for watching and reading! =D
