セクシーキャットの演説 (Dance Cover) Trivia

August 9, 2017

– I filmed this on July 21st.

– The cat ears I have for this dance are actually bunny ears that I bought around Easter. XD I wound them around the headband to make them shorter and more cat-like. When I saw a grey bunny ear headband for a dollar, I figured there had to be some way for me to turn them into cat ears so that I could do this dance.

– I got the cat paw fingerless gloves a while back from a Doki Doki Crate~.

– I wasn’t going to have a tail at first, but it seemed a bit off without it. (^_^”)

– That hairstyle is not only practical in that it kept my hair out of my face, but it also kept the headband in place. =D

– I wanted to do something cat-like for a special ending clip, so I had to think, “What do cats do a lot?” … Push things off of tables/counters/whatever, right? XDD

– I resolved to follow one of the three “cat” parts early on because the dance for the rest of the members is pretty ridiculous. XD orz

I think that may be it for this one~. That’s the last of my Neko Dance Set! I hope you enjoyed them all~! Thanks for watching and reading~~! =D

CAT’S♥EYE (MINI Clip) Trivia

August 6, 2017

– I filmed this on July 16th.

– I know a lot of people didn’t really care for this song because of all of the auto-tuning, but I actually really liked it! I thought it worked out well in the song~. =D

– I had a good take for the dance, but then I did it again because some of my hair got caught on my cat ears when I snapped my head to the side and that kind of bugged me. orz However, after watching that take and the second take again, I decided to go with the first one after all because my hand twirl around 0:30 was so much better on the earlier take. XD

– Even though I had the little half-skirt thing on my shorts, I didn’t swing it back and forth in the dance like they do in the video because the fabric didn’t fall/move very nicely. (^_^”) I could have used the smooth red or black fabric (as seen in my dance covers for “Hadaka no Hadaka no Hadaka no KISS,” “Iroppoi Jirettai,” or “Happy Summer Wedding”), but I didn’t want ANOTHER red, or black, or red and black, or black and red outfit. XD orz

– I was super-happy that I had saved the spotlight effect for my video editor. The site that had all of the different effects that I used is no longer available, so I only have the few that I saved from before. (T_T)

– ARGH, that ONE little piece of hair out of place drives me insane. (-_-*) I couldn’t see it when I watched the playback on the camera, and, by the time I put the video on my computer, I didn’t want to do any more takes. XD (^_^”)

– I think the dance break is my favorite part of the dance; it took me a little while to figure out which move went where after I cut the music down, but I think it turned out all right. =)

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

れでぃぱんさぁ (Dance Cover) Trivia

August 3, 2017

– Does the outfit look familiar? =D It’s pretty much the panther costume from Episode 3 of Agent 36. I just changed the hairstyle and wore different boots (ones that were easier to dance in). ^__^

– Because I felt that there wasn’t too much to this dance, I wanted to add a little something extra to this video, which is why the (rather adorable) little paw print border is there~.

– I don’t know why, but one of my favorite moves is during the line “goro goro goro goro amaechau” around 1:25 (or maybe it’s just one of my favorite parts in the song…?). I also like the little shimmy during the “nakami wa lady panther” and “wagamama lady panther” lines. XD

– I actually bought a leopard print ears headband for this dance, but the coloring was too bright, so it didn’t go with my tank top at all. orz Instead, I just used the same outline ears headband from Agent 36 (their coloring was closer to the tank top, though you can’t really see it).

– For a little while, I practiced that one part during the chorus by bending my knees inward each time because the live performances I watched didn’t show what they were doing. I eventually found one that showed the actual moves being “out, center, in” for the knee movements, so I had to fix it. (^_^”)

I think that’s all for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~!

And that was my July for 2017~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

Surimuchan [Now] #21 – July 2017

July 31, 2017

Here’s this month’s Surimuchan [Now]~! Don’t forget that my second Surimu Chance! Contest is open until 11:59 PM on Thursday, August 3rd! It’s the post just before this one!

Entertainment
Anne with an E (Netflix) – I rather liked it, but I was a little surprised by how dark it got sometimes. Having never read the book(s), I wondered about the opinions of those who had, so I checked out reviews on imdb.com to find that the show had indeed deviated from the books and added some stuff. I also learned that I should probably check out the version from the 80s because a lot of people seem to love (and prefer) that one.
Albion: The Enchanted Stallion (Netflix) – Okay, so this might be on the same level as some of the “cheesy Hallmark-type B-movie fantasies,” but I watched this after a lot of not-so-great days, and it was pretty much exactly what I was looking for. ^_^
La Belle et la Bête (Netflix) – A live-action Beauty and the Beast~. As much as I love the Disney storyline (it is my favorite of the Disney Animated films), it was actually really refreshing to watch one that followed the original fairy tale more. It’s in French, so I couldn’t really work on anything while it was on, but that’s fine because I would have missed the lovely sets and costumes.
– As for music, one song that got stuck in my head a lot was, oddly enough, the entrance music for Mike and Maria Kanellis: True Love. XD
– I started reading “Phantastes, a Faerie Romance for Men and Women” by George MacDonald. I’m not too far in, but it’s got some rich imagery from what I have read~. =)

Purchases
Gachinko de Ikou! single – I really wanted a physical copy of this one, because it’s one of my favorite Buono! singles~.
– Some more wrestling stuff… I got some Jeff Hardy arm sleeves, but, unfortunately, they were too big. T_T A couple of the items were gifts (a List of Jericho clipboard for my mom and a Becky Lynch lunch box for my sister).
– A couple of items from the “Tsugunaga Momoko Memorial Event: Momogatari” (the USB as well as an A5 photo set).
– A Blu-ray copy of “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” – I’ve been waiting to see this since it was announced back in January~. I liked it! (HBK being in it was an added bonus~.) =D
Two C.S. Lewis books, both with various pieces from his various writings (Mere Christianity, A Grief Observed, Miracles, etc.)

Happenings
– The main thing, of course… I went to an NXT show on the 29th~! It was a lot of fun! I was super-excited to see wrestlers like Drew McIntyre, Hideo Itami, Ember Moon, and others~. ^__^ We stopped by Treasure City before the show, and I got a giant German chocolate doughnut sort of pastry after the show. XD
– I think it was near the beginning of this month… I was looking at something that was posted on one side of a door, and someone came through the door really quickly. I had been holding the paper on the door up to look at the one underneath it, so my arm was up and I took the door square on my elbow. O__O I haven’t lifted weights since, but I should be healed enough by now to start again. (^_^”)
– Another stupid injury… I was grabbing some boots from my closet while sitting on the floor. I had one hand on the floor while I opened the closet door with the other hand. I didn’t notice that the hand on the floor was so close to the door, so I ended up jamming the door into the fingernail of the middle finger of my right hand. It bent the nail back far enough for it to start bleeding, and I was in excruciating pain for the next couple of days. (The pain actually woke me up at one point.) orz But that’s all healed up now, too~.

Plans
My Neko Dance Set will be uploaded early next month. After that, I have a couple more SurimuChats to upload before I switch over to the shorter Surimu Stories for vlogs.

Recommendation
Lisa Michelle on YouTube~! She does amazing H!P song covers! =D

Let me know your answers in the comments~!! ^__^

Thanks for reading~!
