Surimu Chance! Contest #2 Information and Rules

July 30, 2017

It’s time for the second Surimu Chance! Contest (aka Surimuchan’s H!P Appreciation Contests)! This will be a Hello! Project Mystery Pictures Contest (credit for this idea goes to Celestia of Bikkuri Project, which was a Hello! Project blog I read a lot when I first found H!P; she hasn’t updated for a while, but I really liked this idea). The theme is H!P Kids.

Contest Information and Rules

– The contest will begin at 12:00 AM Central Standard Time (US) on Monday, July 31st.

– The contest post will contain thirty mystery pictures. These pictures are small pieces taken from Berryz Koubou, °C-ute, and Buono! music videos. All you need to do is write out the name of the music video each picture was taken from. The person who gets the most right is the winner~!

– Submit your answers in a numbered list in a comment on the contest post. Comments will only show up if I approve them, so, as long as I don’t approve them, no one will see your answers except for me~.

– Pictures are from official Berryz Koubou, °C-ute, and Buono! music videos; A-sides, B-sides, or album tracks that have had official music videos made for them are all eligible options. Different versions for music videos (Another Version, Close Up, etc.) are also eligible options.

– You only need to write the name of the song and not exactly what is in the picture or which version of the music video it’s from.

Answers are due by 11:59 PM Central Standard Time (US) on Thursday, August 3rd. The person with the most correct answers will win the Prize Box! If there is a tie, I will use a random number generator to determine the Prize Box winner.

– This contest is open to everyone worldwide~!

Please Note: Winners will need to provide a mailing address to receive the Prize Box; after all, I need to be able to ship it to you! [[Addresses will ONLY be shared in a private message/e-mail; they will NOT be made public.]]

Please Note: The winner for this contest will not be eligible for the next two contests. I’d like others to have a chance to get prizes, too!

The Prize Box will contain:
– 1 regular edition H!P single CD of the winner’s choice
– Set of eight Ivybourn Workshop buttons of the winner’s choice
– Various bonus prizes (The winner will be sent pictures of the bonus prizes to choose from; there are some new ones since the last contest!)

Remember, this contest starts at midnight (12 AM Central Standard Time (US), Monday, July 31st). Also remember that it’s the person who gets the most right, NOT the first person to send in their answers who wins~. =)

Good luck to those participating~!

Added Task Dance Challenge – Chu! Natsu Party

July 17, 2017

It’s been quite a while since my last dance challenge (February, I think?)! The most frustrating thing about this challenge was the fact that I kept forgetting to press the “Continue” button after each question, so it took a little longer than it should have. XD orz

Thanks for watching~!

スプリンター! (MINI Clip) Trivia

July 13, 2017

– I filmed this on July 7th.

– I had everything filmed and done… and then I put the clips together and noticed that the camera had moved just enough to throw off the split screen. orz So, I had to do it again… and then the camera was off AGAIN, so I had to film everything over AGAIN. (-_-*) I’m just glad it wasn’t a full song.

– A download-only video of me dancing to this song was actually the first time I even split-screened a video (back in 2010). I filmed it outside, and I was wearing a pink shirt on one side and a green shirt on the other side. I thought about revisiting those outfits, but I think I got rid of the green shirt. (The pink shirt was actually the one that I just wore for my dance cover of “I NEED YOU.” =D)

– I was “closer” to myself in my first video for this dance because my old Movie Maker could create a smooth split line instead of the usual hard cut (but I think my dancing was a little better in this one).

– For Miyabi’s part, I’m wearing a Beauty and the Beast tank top, and for Captain’s part, I’m wearing (wait for it)… a Captain America tank top. Ahahaha… XD

– I was rather happy with how the border turned out, though I really wish I could get my Movie Maker to stop messing with the colors. orz

– Like I said in the video description, I’ve loved this song forever: from the first listen (which wasn’t too long after I started listening to Berryz Koubou).

That’s all~! Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

These are the (super-simple) outfits I’ll be wearing in my upcoming MINI Clip of Berryz Koubou’s “Sprinter!”

Sprinter! Both

Sprinter! Outfits

A bit blurry… argh. orz … Who remembers when I first danced to this song? It was actually my very first split-screened video, but it was only available for download on my blog (about seven years ago)! =D

This MINI Clip will be uploaded on July 13th. Please look forward to it~! ^__^

SurimuChats #18 | My Nervous Habits

July 12, 2017

Fun Fact: When I was quickly making the thumbnail for this video (I already had the video uploaded, but I had forgotten to make the thumbnail, so I tried to hurry), I messed up the word “nervous” twice. My old laptop’s keyboard is a little different from my current laptop’s keyboard, so I ended up hitting the “b” instead of the “n” and ended up with “bervous.” XDD After that, I typed too quickly without thinking and ended up with “vernous.” XDD orz Aaaarrrgghh! XD

チュッ!夏パ~ティ (MINI Clip) Trivia

July 8, 2017

– I filmed this on June 16th.

– This is just one of the songs that I specifically bought that pink wig for. However, after seeing how it looks… I don’t know if I’ll be wearing it for any others. XD orz

– This is quite possibly my most embarrassing outfit yet. Yes… even worse than the chicken (I, for one, thought the chicken was adorable). o_O

– The yellow flower hair accessory is something my mom crocheted years ago.

– I hadn’t worn those sandals in many years. After I tried them on (to see if I’d be able to do the dance in them), I had a ton of black… something on my feet where the straps had been. Some sort of powder or something? Whatever the case, I had to wipe the sandals down before I wore them for the dance.

– I have two different yellow skirts; the other one shows up as more yellow (instead of gold) after editing, but this one had better movement.

– On my wrist, I’m wearing a slap bracelet that I got in fifth grade (when they were all the rage) as well as the wristband from a Polly Pocket watch I had years and years ago. XD

I think that’s about it for this one. … Even if it isn’t, I need to go to sleep. XD Thanks for watching and reading~!
