ミニモニ。数え歌〜デートば〜じょん〜 (Dance Cover) Trivia

– As I said in the video description, I’ve wanted to do this dance as a Valentine’s Day special for the past two years (at least), but I never got around to it. orz I’m really happy to finally have it done~!

– Because the song and dance are so adorable, I wanted to make a background to match~~. It’s made up of about sixty pieces of construction paper, and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. o(=>w<=)o

– Did you all find the “Surimu” in the video? Or, to be more specific, the 「アイ ク」? XD It’s kind of hard to tell, but there is a darker blue background around the “ス,” “リ,” and “ム” on the ice cream stand. ^_^

– There are a few “3-D” elements to the background. You can kind of see it with the ferris wheel carriages, but the ice cream cone and the flowers also pop out. =D

– My outfit is kind of a combination of the ones they wear in the video: a blue skirt for their blue dresses and a white top with a huge pink bow for the other outfits. I was super-excited about this skirt because it has pockets. XD

– As with most of my accessories, I made the bow myself~.

– I have a few bloopers saved from this dance: I accidentally knock one of the carriages down in one take; in another, the music stops and I keep dancing, hoping it would pick back up (it didn’t); and in the third, right away in the beginning, when I point up, the long “ribbon” on the bow flies up in my face. XDD

– I just now realized that I was following Kago’s steps for the initial “Hoi~” jumps. orz That’s one problem with learning dances without dance shots… I always end up looking at other people for certain moves, and then I forget to switch back to the person I’m originally following. XD Argh. m(_ _)m I could go ahead and name a dozen other mistakes in this cover, but I’d rather not… orz

– I originally had some thin bracelets on, but they were sliding around too much, so I took them off so I could concentrate.

– The hardest parts were last “Tanoshii na” parts of the verses where I’m supposed to have a partner. I always practice dances in my room, and I just didn’t have enough room to do it correctly, so I was always stepping with the wrong foot or turning in the wrong direction because I was trying not to run into anything. I… think I did it right in the video, though…

– I was originally only going to do the short version of the song, but, after watching the PV, I realized that I could do the second half fairly easily… so I did. =D

– Can I just say that I love Tsunku’s parts in this song. XD

– I was filming this from around 4 AM to around 5:30 AM. This includes messing up and taking a few breaks. orz

– Random happenings and things that I will probably associate with this dance: my glasses breaking and Fire Emblem: Awakening (whoamygoodnessItotallylovethatgameahhh!!). XD

I’ll probably think of some more things later, but I really should try to sleep… I work later today. (^_^”)>

Thank you for reading and watching (oh, and I will definitely respond back to comments and messages… at some point. I’ve been crazily busy lately, which is why I had to twist my schedule around so much to film this. orz)~!
