BRAND NEW MORNING (Dance Cover) Trivia

May 23, 2017

– I first tried to film this early in the morning May 10th, but it wasn’t working out, so I filmed something else instead. I eventually filmed this early in the morning on May 12th.

– I was really excited when I finally found some red shorts in a store. 😄 I’ve been looking for some decent ones for YEARS (proper color, no holes/cuts/distressing).

– The jacket/sweatshirt I’m wearing has only been used in one other video: the “LOVE Machine” collaboration (for one of the small sections).

– I felt like the marching part of the dance was kind of boring because it just doesn’t look as good with one person (as is usually the case for any of these formation dances with marching). (-_-“)

– I tried only tying back part of my hair, but it kept getting in my face (as you can see in the split-screened part), so I had to put it up in a ponytail. (^_^”)

– I was still using the dilating eye drops for my eye infection when I filmed this, so the combination of the blurriness from the drops and the bright lights threw me for a bit of a loop. 😄

– The chorus and the first half of the dance break are probably my favorite parts of the dance. =D

– I had to pin some black fabric behind the blinds in the window to block out the light so it wouldn’t mess with the lighting for the split screen. The result was a nearly flawless split~. ^_^

– Speaking of the split screen, that was kind of a last-minute decision. I really liked how the dance for the chorus looked, so I quickly learned the other part before I started filming. =)

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

誰にもナイショ (Original Choreography) Trivia

May 16, 2017

– I originally started working on this choreography in late September of 2015. I had pretty much everything except for the dance break figured out, but then YouTube Red hit, and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to use the song, so I stopped working on the dance. By the time Up Front music was made available again, I had already started working on a handful of other dances and videos, so I kind of pushed this one aside. After my other laptop stopped working last spring, I lost some of the choreography notes that I had for this dance, so I had to just remember what I could and fill in the rest. (Thankfully, I was able to remember most of what I had done.)

– After all of those setbacks, what took me the longest was learning the other side for the split screen. In doing that, I actually had to rework some of the first side, too. The first fifteen seconds or so were kind of a pain to learn in reverse at first.

– I had originally planned to wear corduroy pants on both sides, but I figured, if anyone wanted to learn the dance, having shorts on one side would make it easier to see knee movements. (^_^”)

– Just like I did with “Renai WARS,” I choreographed Moemi’s side and then just “learned” Asahi’s side.

– I feel like the outfit I had for Moemi’s part looks… incredibly 90s. 😄

– I love the tomato shirt I’m wearing on Asahi’s side. =D

– My favorite part of the dance (and maybe the song) is the little hop forward around 0:55. I also really like the strings in the song right after they sing “motto amaku” (when I look to the right and left) the first time.

– I was absolutely determined to get that weird, walking-in-place part in there, even though it seemed to be a little more difficult in shoes (since I usually practice barefoot or in socks). 😄 I just thought it looked neat.

– If I remember correctly, the first moves I choreographed were the ones that go with the lines “Darenimo naisho de.”

– I usually do my dances at night, but I did this one during the day… I didn’t even think about the effect the sunlight in the window would have on the video’s lighting. orz I think that’s one reason the lighting for the two sides was off. (-_-“)

There might be more trivia for this… but I can’t remember any more right now~. Thanks for watching and reading~! =D

色っぽい じれったい (Dance Cover) Trivia

May 13, 2017

– I filmed this on April 15th. I wanted to make absolutely sure that I would have a dance done for Mother’s Day (even though I’m uploading this the day before Mother’s Day).

– I used a plain black high-low skirt (which I bought over a year ago (maybe even a year-and-a-half) specifically for this dance) turned to the side for this dance. I bought a few yards of material specifically to make the red and black ruffles on the skirt. This is the first time in a lo~ng time that I’ve actually sewed finished edges on something for a dance.

– I was a little worried that this outfit would look too much like the one I wore for my dance cover of “Hadaka no Hadaka no Hadaka no KISS” because I used the same top and color scheme, but I think the skirt helped to make it different enough.

– I had many failed takes with those shoes on (I had to put cotton balls in the toes to keep them from slipping off), so I finally took them off. I did one full take without the shoes, but I knew that my mom really liked how they looked with the outfit, so I was determined to do the dance with them on… so, I did. ^_^

– I tried to start the dance on the floor (as seen in the original dance), but I kept getting caught on my skirt when I stood up. 😄 That’s why I started the dance standing.

– Love those arm swings in the opening moves! =D

– After clapping while turned to the left, the steps taking to turn to the right (seen in the opening, dance break, and ending) might have been the most difficult for me, especially the one during the dance break. I think I kept starting on the wrong foot. 😄 orz

– I added a bunch of arm movements during the part after the dance break, because I didn’t want to just follow Ai-chan’s part and sit there for the majority of that section. 😄

– I completely removed that awkward move during the chorus where one arm pushes upward and the other pushes down while the knees bend deeply… super-awkward-looking. o_O

– They use more regular steps with both feet during the chorus, but I mostly stepped with my right foot and kind of dragged the left foot over. (^_^”)>

– This is one of the few Hello! Project songs that my brothers also enjoy. =)

That’s all for this one~! Thank you for watching and reading!
