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

ハッピーサマーウェディング (Dance Cover) Trivia

July 1, 2017

– I filmed this on June 25th.

– I remember “practicing” this dance waaay back in 2007/2008 when I first found Morning Musume’s music. =)

– One thing that kept me from doing this dance for so long was finding a proper outfit. … What I ended up with wasn’t amazing, but it worked, I guess. XD orz

– I had a bunch of extra red fabric left over from the stuff I bought for my “Iroppoi Jirettai” outfit, so I just hemmed the edges and pinned it in certain places to make a sort of skirt. I didn’t want to cut the fabric up in case I needed it later, so I actually had a ton of the extra fabric tucked into the waistband of my shorts. XD

– The gold headband I’m wearing was originally going to be used for a veil, but the tulle that I have is too stiff/scratchy to fall nicely. (^_^”)

– As I said in the video description, I incorporated the 4th generations moves during the chorus into the dance, but I also tried to continue with the main singers’ movements… it didn’t look too great in the end. orz I probably should have just used the 4th gen. dancing throughout, but it’s too late now~~~… orz

– I had originally wanted to split screen the choruses in this dance so that I could do the main part and the 4th gen. parts separately, but I just decided not to. Maybe I wanted it to be like a throwback to some of my earlier dance covers… or maybe I’m getting lazy in my old age. XD TT_TT

– Another effect I thought about using was an overlay of a close up of me doing the spoken part during the dance break, but I figured that would take away from the actual dancing, so I decided against it.

– I wish I could have done a better “Pa Pa Pala no ACHAA” kick, but that skirt wasn’t terribly easy to move in. (^_^”)

I guess that’s about it~. Thanks for watching and reading~! =)

Surimuchan [ Now] #20 – June 2017

June 30, 2017

Entertainment
– I bought all six of the Marvel Oz comics on my Kindle (art by Skottie Young), and I’ve gotten through four-and-a-half of them~. I’ve always loved the Oz books, but I’ve been so frustrated with most of the adaptations because they always seem to stray so far from the books. These do a wonderful job of bringing the books to life, though! I only wish they could have done all of the original Oz books for this series… but I’m content with these few~.
– I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales earlier this month. I definitely preferred it to the last one, but nothing will ever, ever beat the first one.
– I played through Castlevania: Symphony of the Night again~! I actually did it about two hours faster than my fastest playthrough… but I had to sacrifice 0.1 percent completion to do so. orz I only had 200.3% instead of my usual 200.4%. Ah, well… XD
– For music this month… lots of °C-ute early on, then lots of Berryz Koubou, Country Girls, and Buono!… but I had a few super-random songs stuck in my head for a while. My brother was telling me how he had randomly watched the videos for some songs that had been popular a while back and he started played one. I was only half listening at first, but once the music started I automatically started singing along to his surprise (and mine actually XD). That song was “The Way You Love Me” by Faith Hill. After that, I also listened to “This Kiss” (also by Faith Hill) and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “You’re Still the One” by Shania Twain. They were all really popular when I was in about 3rd grade, so they made me really nostalgic. =)
– As usual, I’ve been watching RAW and SmackDown every week. I also started watching some older NXT episodes on the WWE Network.

Purchases
A bunch of older H!P CDs – They’re used, but in very good condition (it’s so much cheaper).
– A handful of songs on iTunes – Besides the five that I mentioned earlier (yeah, I bought them XD), I got some more WWE themes. (Tye Dillinger’s is super-catchy~.)
TICKETS~! I got tickets to an NXT show next month as well as tickets to this year’s TLC in October (the day before my birthday)~~!!! They were a bit spendy, but I’m really excited~.
– Misc. WWE merchandise – Against my better judgement, I bought a few more wrestling shirts (NXT, Breezango, and Sami Zayn), as well as a few mugs (two of them were gifts; the third was a clear Bálor Club mug), a Money in the Bank lunchbox (to store my dog tags), and the WrestleMania 33 Blu-ray (it wasn’t the most amazing show (it was SO long), but it had a few great moments, and it was the first WrestleMania since I started watching, so…)

Happenings
– °C-ute and Tsugunaga Momoko graduated from Hello! Project. This obviously has nothing to do with me, but I just feel a bit empty. TT_TT
– The first Surimu Chance! Contest began and ended… only two participants. (^_^”) Maybe no one wants to give out their address? Maybe I should try to change how I do these contests or something… orz
– In happier news, I had an impression taken of my upper teeth, so I believe my next appointment will be the deband check, which means my braces should be coming off sooooon~~~~! I can’t wait to eat trail mix again. XD

Plans
– I wanted to do a few summery MINI Clips next month, but I don’t know how much time I’m going to have. =/ I have one of them done (Chu! Natsu Party), along with one dance cover (Happy Summer Wedding), but my hours have been pretty much maxed out at work every week, so I don’t have a ton of down time. You may have to put up with a bunch of Surimu Stories in the meantime. m(_ _)m

Recommendation
– The original Oz books (by L. Frank Baum) and/or the Marvel Oz comics! I feel like Oz is one of those forgotten fantasy lands (even though there has been to~~ns of content coming out for it; it is public domain after all).

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

Thanks for reading~!

Outfit for Upcoming ハッピーサマーウェディング Dance Cover

This is the outfit I’ll be wearing for my dance cover of Morning Musume’s “Happy Summer Wedding.”

HSW 4

Happy Summer Wedding Outfit

… Not 100% pleased with how this one turned out, which is really too bad because I love this song so much and have such a strong connection with it (because it was one of my first few Morning Musume songs). orz Ah, well… at least it’s finally done after seven years! =D

This dance cover will be uploaded on July 1st. Please look forward to it~! ^__^
