LALALA 幸せの歌 (MINI Clip) Trivia

June 5, 2017

– I filmed this on May 20th.

– I filmed the pink side first because it was the “other” side (the side I learned second), however, after filming the purple side and putting all of the videos on my computer, I was devastated to learn that the two sides didn’t line up. orz I had to do the entire thing again (both sides, six videos total). TT_TT

– As I said in the video description, this was my first °C-ute song (or at least it’s the first one of theirs that I remember listening to). When it first came out, I remember bringing my laptop into the living room in the middle of the night and playing the song for my mom during a commercial break in the news. I remember saying, “Isn’t it just so happy?!” XD

– I don’t think I ever want to use a feather boa in a dance outfit again. That thing was falling apart and going everywhere. FEATHERS. EVERYWHERE. Such a mess… XD orz

– This was originally going to be a solo MINI Clip with the purple outfit (Chisato’s part), which is why I started the lip-syncing on that side (even though it was Maimi singing and she was wearing pink), but then I realized, duh, I can easily make a pink outfit (and it looked better than the purple one). So, yeah, that’s why the lip-syncing is kind of backwards as far as what colors were worn by the member singing. (^_^”)

– The purple outfit actually includes five different colors: the dark purple tank top under the light purple tank top, the medium purple skirt (which looks more blue on this camera (-_-“)), the blue shorts under the skirt, and the solid purple hair tie (that you can’t even see). Quite a collection… o_O

– For the border, I took a screencap of the video, selected a square from the skirt, pasted that square in, and then stretched it out to make one side of the border. I think it looked a lot better than just selecting a color from the skirt and making a solid border. ^_^

– The movements during the “dekiru yo” line just before the chorus weren’t planned/timed like that, but it worked out so well. =D

That’s all for this one~! Oh dear… I’m running low on finished videos. O__O I need to get back to work! orz

Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

立ち上がれ 乙女達 (MINI Clip) Trivia

June 2, 2017

– I filmed this on May 10th (after failing to film “BRAND NEW MORNING” multiple times orz).

– As I said in the video description, I always really liked this song and was a bit surprised that they hadn’t performed it more (I only found one performance to learn the dance from). O_O Besides that, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone mention this as a °C-ute song that they really like. Is it forgettable or is my taste really just that different?! XD

– I was rather proud of this outfit because I took some long pieces of light pink tulle and tucked them behind my belt in five different spots. They hung all the way down to my boots and sparkled when I moved… but none of them were visible on camera! orz TT_TT

– I used some of that same light pink tulle as a headband.

– The ring I’m wearing on the index finger of my right hand is one of my favorites: it has multiple little golden “medallions” (discs) hanging on it~. It was my mom’s, but she gave it to me a while back~. =)

– I don’t know why, but I felt like this outfit needed purple (hence the shorts, which are purple even if they don’t really look it). (^_^”)

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

まっさらブルージーンズ (MINI Clip) Trivia

June 1, 2017

– I first filmed this on May 15th.

– I kept looking at my original take and trying to figure out what didn’t look right when I realized it was my outfit. It wasn’t the fact that I was wearing jeans (I was dead-set on wearing blue jeans for this dance XD), but rather the fact that my tank top(s) wasn’t (weren’t) rolled up to look more like a crop top. Not only did it not look similar enough to their outfits, but it actually looked like I was wearing hospital scrubs. XD orz

– I re-filmed this on May 25th.

– I kind of wanted to have my hair down, but it kept getting in the way, so I put the sides back. Even that was getting to be a bit of a pain, but I put even more of the sides back. (^_^”)

– The arm swings were, of course, my favorite moves. They’re the reason I really wanted to do this dance.

– When I was trying to come up with something to replace the infamous chorus hip thrusts, my main concern was getting a move that fit with the beat. I think it worked out well enough. I believe that was also the first move that I tried. =)

– You can see a leaf fly in from the left side of the screen near the beginning of the video. I smile after it flies by. XD It stayed there throughout the dance, and I actually picked it up and saved it. (I hope to use it on the page for this dance in my dance cover scrapbook… which I still haven’t started (^_^”)).

– I had to edit a “One, two, three” count in before the song because it starts so suddenly.

– It was pretty windy out… though you could probably tell. (^_^”)

– I couldn’t help but go “PAH!” in time with the beat after the last “Love me do.” XD

– Because I’m so short, I had to fold the bottoms of the jeans under and pin them in place so I wouldn’t walk (more like trip) on them. XD orz

That’s all for this one~! Another °C-ute MINI Clip will be out tomorrow! Thanks for watching and reading~. =D

かっちょええ! (MINI Clip) Trivia

April 20, 2017

– My first MINI Clip edit of this song was only 57 seconds long. I edited it again to include the dance break.

– I had originally planned on doing a MINI Clip for a different Berryz coupling track, but I didn’t have enough time to learn it really well, so I decided to go with this one instead because the dance is so simple.

– The part of this MINI Clip that took the longest was figuring out the outfit. XD At first, I had a white shirt with a cute picture of Dumbo on it, but I decided against it. I had a pink tank top over the blue tank top at one point. I also thought about wearing my Ultimate Warrior arm tassels (but they would have flailed around too much) or arm accessories that had a Ferris wheel on one side and ice cream on the other side.

– THE. TOP. IS. YELLOW. It doesn’t look like it. But it is. *shakes fist at Movie Maker*

– My first idea for that scarf was to have it pinned to the back of the straps of my tank top(s) so that it hung down kind of like a cape, but I went with the forward drape so it looked more like a vest instead.

– I’m wearing rolled up arm accessories (cut-up knee-high socks) on my wrists.

– I think I’ve said this multiple times… I love those shorts (and the blue, purple, and pink ones just like them). They’re so comfortable! =D

– I was having a little trouble lip-syncing in this because my jaw is kind of stiff and screwed up from the elastics I’ve been wearing on my braces. (^_^”)

– I probably could have done the full song just as easily… it was only one minute longer, and it used pretty much the same moves. XD orz

– The border originally had yellow triangles, but Movie Maker made the yellow a really ugly light orange sort of shade, so I changed them to blue. orz

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