ゆき (Dance Cover) Trivia

December 12, 2017

– I filmed this on December 4th.

– This is the first Douyou Pops dance I’ve done since 2011, and it’s the last of the Douyou Pops that had a video/dance (that I know of, at least).

– I had multiple ideas for this video: split screen, triple split, solo in the snow (but we didn’t get snow until just a couple of days ago ahaha… orz), but I finally settled on a solo inside with cheesy effects similar to the ones I had in my other Douyou Pops videos. XD

– I had to look all over for mittens (because we usually use gloves), but my mom finally found some of my sister’s mittens from when she was little.

– I actually bought those earmuffs for last year’s Christmas dance (“Kira Kira Fuyu no Shiny G”), but decided against using them for that outfit. I think they work better with this one anyway~.

– Since the members in the video had puffy white dresses that made them look like snowballs/snowmen, I put a few black circles on my shirt to look a little more like a snowman. XD

– My original edit for the song took out the two parts without singing (when they just kind of shout randomly XD). I actually find those parts a bit grating, especially the first one (with the “WAAAAI! WAAAI! YUKI DA!” (-_-“)). However, I decided to use the whole song and just add my own little choreography to those parts of the song.

– On one take, I fell right at the end when I was trying to sit down. Yes… I saved it for a blooper video. XD

– I tried to make the “snow banks” on the border match up with the white walls that were showing. XD

– I thought the cheesy snowing effect would not only be cute in a simple sort of way but it was also kind of a call-back to the end of my “Aka Hana no Tonakai” dance cover (which also had a cheesy snowing effect)~. =D

That’s all for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

Outfit for Upcoming ゆき Dance Cover

December 8, 2017

I’m dancing to another Douyou Pops song for the first time since… 2011! =O This is what I’ll be wearing in my dance cover for the song “Yuki” from the Christmas/Winter Douyou Pops album~.

Yuki Outfit

I’ll be dancing to the full song, but the song is less than two minutes long, so it’s pretty much a MINI Clip. XD I’ll be uploading this on December 12th. Please look forward to it~! ^__^

Surimuchan [Now] #25 – November 2017

November 30, 2017

Entertainment
– I saw Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League in theaters. I really liked Thor (I’ve really liked all of the Thor movies) and Justice League wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (not a glowing endorsement, I know XD).
– Even though I didn’t really care about it much when the songs first came out, Morning Musume ’17’s “Jama Shinaide Here We Go!” has been stuck in my head a lot over the past month. I think it has something to do with how much I like the part I did for that song in my giant Momusu dance medley. XD

Purchases
– I got tons of H!P CDs (and the giant Blu-ray box sets of °C-ute and Buono!‘s final concerts)! I’m trying to get hard copies of all of the H!P album releases as well as significant singles (as well as singles from miscellaneous groups). =)
– I didn’t get nearly as much from the WWE Shop for this year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, though I did get signed photos of some wrestlers (including AJ Styles, my favorite!). Besides that, I got a Shield T-shirt (way before Black Friday), and I pre-ordered a framed plaque commemorating the Finn Bálor/AJ Styles match at TLC; it has a piece of the ring canvas! =D
– For non-H!P, non-WWE stuff, I bought Wonder Woman, Spider-Man Homecoming, and Kong: Skull Island on Blu-ray (on super-sale). I also bought a little LEGO Beast and a Belle/Gaston/Mrs. Potts Tsum Tsum Stackables set to add to my Beauty and the Beast collection~. ♥

Happenings
– Work, and lots of it. O__O I haven’t had a ton of time to work on dances (I didn’t even have time to do that second redo dance I had been planning orz). It will be nice when work slows down a bit after the holidays.

Plans
– I have another Vlog Blooper video ready, and an auto-caption video is done being filmed but not quite done being edited. I plan on doing my usual Christmas dance video on December 22nd, like always~. I’d like to do more, but I don’t know what kind of time I’ll have, so I’ll probably end up uploading mostly miscellaneous videos for December. (^__^”)

Recommendation
The songs from ANGERME’s upcoming single, especially “Kimi Dake ja nai sa…friends“~! The first time I heard it, I immediately loved it and almost started tearing up during the chorus (and then the instrumental break, and then the layered vocals at the end…). TT_TT ♥♥♥

Thanks for reading~!

Surimuchan Dance Cover Comparisons – Mikan [2011 and 2017]

November 22, 2017

Better lighting! A slightly improved dance break! A special effect! Longer hair! Boots! … That’s about it! XD

みかん (Dance Cover) Trivia – [Take 2]

November 21, 2017

– I filmed this on November 16th.

– The outfit is almost exactly the same except I added boots and a silver and black scrunchie. I was also wearing a different black skirt.

– I finished this in one take! … But I was wearing something else so I had to do it over anyway. orz XD

– I was originally wearing a silver skirt (which I bought specifically for this), but I didn’t care for how it looked in this dance, so I redid it with a black skirt. orz

– The dance break looks a bit different because I actually looked at Gaki-san’s part for a bit of the dance break (because I felt Kamei danced a little differently from everyone else for that part).

– I wanted something a little different for this video since the dancing and outfit were so similar to my original dance cover, so I added that little color change part right after the dance break.

That’s all for this one! The comparison video will be uploaded tomorrow~. ^__^ Thanks for watching and reading!

記憶の迷路 (MINI Clip) Trivia

November 12, 2017

– I filmed this on October 21st.

– This is the shortest MINI Clip so far.

– I’m wearing lip color in this because I bought a bunch of different brands for a work project but I never wear lip color out in public, so I’ll just be using them on dances occasionally ahahaha… orz

– I was going to make a maze pattern on the borders, but I didn’t know if that would be too distracting, so I just went with… boxes. XD

– I had to search forever to find the moves for 0:23 to 0:27 (and I think I ended up changing them a bit anyway XD). (^_^”)

– This was one of the first few songs I put on a list for MINI Clips to do~.

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