Just thought I would start a thread for this since Morning Musume/H!P is getting so popular :) My group has done 6 costumes and are working on 2 more before the end of the year. So thoughts, comments, suggestions, helpful hints? Or just chatter :D

Ooo, awesome ^^ I definetly have to get the juice going on my MM/H!P costumes. I'm hoping to do these videos, and probably as Mari Yaguchi:

Love Machine (jacket and dress outfit)
Renai Revolution 21 (the outfits with the fur)
The Peace! (The outfits with the sailor shirts)
Do It! Now (Red and Black outfits ^^)
Aoi Sports Car no Otoko
Salt 5 vid (as Makoto Ogawa )

I am sooo very surprised so many people cosplayed MM
I mean, I have never seen any in Toronto's cons~ (only attended to 4 cons so far, but I haven't notice any)

MARI IS THE BEST~~~~~~~~~~~heehe

Cyber Wolf - That's an impressive list. I love those DIN costumes and RR21. I had plans to make those, but gave up on them. I have a really lame version of Sports Car Mika version that I'll eventually have pics of :p I spent most of my time making the guitar *lol*

Maki - What is burberry???

Momusu cosplay has gotten huge! It's amazing 0_0 I can't help it, but Ai Kago is my fave (since the other faves of mine have graduated *sad*) I guess that's why I do so much cosplay of her!

Future plans:
Working on Gomatto. I'll be Aya! That's a change >_>
7Air - Mika
Probably some original Tanpopo and I'll probably be Kaori

Of course I have so many I want to do it's hard to decide which to do first. And those 3 will be a change for me. I just hope I can do them as well as I feel that I do Ai :D

Burberry is a specific pattern of plaid and it's a world-famous designer fashion label. Their two specific patterns are blue and the more popular tan pattern. Their merchandise is usually found in the high-end department stores and shopping areas (i.e. Beverly Hills).

There are so many I want to make but I don't know what I want to do first! LOL ^^;

Yay! A H!P thread XD now we can make this one as long as the Zelda one >_> hehe. Chatter = good :D
waaaai *huggles Aya Mizu*

You're probably going to have to paint it, Maki O_O Mini Moni uses their own special patented design of plaid XD

waa making a guitar lol XD sounds like a fun prop XD

Mmmm well hello project cosplay seems very popular in asia, it was only a matter of time before it reached the rest of the cosplay world ^^; the great thing about hello project is that they're very visual. The videos and the looks are almost as important as the song, and each song has its own distinct set of outfits, even if it looks like plain clothes. makes a good premise for cosplay ^.~ I know there are a TON of outfits I want *_* I loooove Ayaya. Her costumes range from absolutely obnoxious to totally adorable, but they're always a lot of fun. Ooohh and the plushies. I desperately want an Ayankey T_T

I've currently got three H!P costumes in the works o_o.....

Thank you!!! XD I don't know how many I'm gonna get done this year and into the next year, but I def. wanna do RR21 and either Love Machine or Do It! Now. I love that Love Machine jacket *_*

Yes...put up many pictures :D

Yeah, I agree; you're going to have to paint it ^^; *also hopes to do Ai K's Jankenpyon outfit* XD~ Gah, so many costumes so little time *_*

Cyber Wolf - I'll post pics as soon as I can :) It's a little inaccurate, but it was just for fun anyhow. I loved Mika's hair in the video. That's what made me start the costume.

Maki - Painting will take forever *_* I hope you can find something similiar so you don't have to go through that! You haven't been able to find any yellow/white plaid?? That way you'll only have to add the extra black lines instead of painting the whole thing.

Aya - Thanks for explaining Burberry. I rarely look at tags so my designer knowledge is rather low I guess *lol* So many good costumes it's hard to choose!!!

BSL - Yeah! You found the topic! Let's make this the longest one yet ^0^ The guitar was a hassle *_* It's mainly cardboard, but I used real metal for the tuners and added strings for it too! It's more impressive than the costume itself *laugh*

Aya has grown on me ^_^ The main costume that makes me think obnoxious is that orange one from Ne~e? *lol* What is up with those stuffed baubles????

Ooooo...3 costumes! Aya related? :)


Concerning H!P costumes what I feel bad about is when they layer so many on top of each other. That must be so hot! And of course they don't always fit right >_> Most of the time the costumes go with the song, but occassionally I find the choices strange. Uhm...let's see it I can come up with an example...

There's my chatter! ^0^

I'm gonna drag some stuff that you guys said in the other thread to here, then add my stuff about H!P costumes. My list keeps changing. LOl.

About Shabondama...if you watch their performance, it shows their "angry-ness"...Yaguchi especially does well with it. Lol. Tanaka, Takahashi, Yaguchi, and Iida were all interviewed (I think that was it..) and they were all talking about how they had to Roll their R's....and Tanaka was explaining that it just came to her naturally or something...and it was just cool, becuase when I went back to watch it, I totally noticed who rolled and who forgot to...and Niigaki didn't. Lol. But yeah. Onto the costumes.....

Here's my updated list of what I'm going to be making. I have a lot of time on my hands...so....yeah.

Goto Maki - Scramble (PV dress version AND Fun live)
Matsuura Aya - Goodbye Natsuo (The Utaban live version/PV version. It's sooooo cute!!
Salt 5 - Ogawa Makoto
7 Air - Takahashi Ai (I LOOOOOVE her costume)
Morning Musume - As for One day Yaguchi version (MS Special Live + PV mix)
Minimoni - Rock n Roll Kenchoushouzaichi Oboenchai na series (Takahashi)
Goto Maki - Sans Toi Ma Mie (Red + White version)


As for groups, I'm getting a whole bunch of people together to do Country Musume ni Konno to Fujimoto's Uwaki na Honey Pie and Coconut's Musume's version of Zurui Onna (Those black costumes are like...cool. LOl.) I would really like to do Shabondama...'cause it;'s an awesome song....but finding 15 people? Uh-uh. We're also gonna be doing Shin Pucchi Moni's Wow Wow Wow...

I have a lot in store for me...but I'm also getting a lot of help from my sister...and she's a genius...


On another topic...do you guys watch Hello Morning or Utaban? Ichiban suki na television shows~! Oh! And have you guys seen the making-ofs for the shuffles? In the 7air making, Mika like...talks in English...and it's so cute, because Tsuji's like "...." and everyone else is like "Kakkoi~~!!!"...lol.

Waaaaai guys check my costumes for my BRAND SPANKIN NEW SALT 5 COSTUME! :D Its not complete - shirt's the wrong color, hat is more a mesh than a trucker hat... so i didn't add the stripes to the shirt or the logo to the hat yet, because i might find better pieces before Anime Weekend Atlanta ^___^ I chose Maeda Yuki because it's awesome seeing her singing rap, and I like her hat :D

My H!P costume wishlist:
Ayaka - Sexy 8, 7nin matsuri
Mini Moni ... uh.... everything mini moni :D
Maki Goto - Te wo Niggitte
Something Ayaya ^___^ I love her so much!

Heh...it was only a few months ago that my friend and I were like, "Aw! Morning Musume has such cool outfits! We should cosplay them! I wonder if anyone will even recognize us, tho?"

So...it sounds like quite a few people would not only recognize us but be able to name which song/album we're dressing up as (assuming we do a decent costume) ^_^

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
07-22-2003, 09:06 PM

Yay for Hello! Project cosplay! We should schedule a photo op at AniMagic! I bet we could round up a decent group.

hmm..

...I wonder if anyone beats Baby Snow Leopard's affinity in Ayacosplayness >=D she gets stuck doing an aya even when she doesn't want to..... X3

07-23-2003, 06:05 AM
OMG Aya's Ne~e? dress X_x THE most atrocious thing EVAR! But the song is so cute T_T

Errr... yeah actually LOL I just realized all three costumes are Aya costumes *rofl* but only two are Ayaya =3

And yes X_X the ugly concert top-layer outfits... they're always sooooo bad, because they're obviously just covers for more costumes X_X and they're so baggy n stuff, and have crappy velcro jobs for quick changes BLEH

Ooou Shabondama O_O I so wanna see the PV. As my friend said about the song tho... "It hurts the ears... and vicariously the throat." True dat X_x but it kinda grows on ya. It's SO random tho! I really could do without the random monologue, as much as I love Rika, and as cute a job I thought she did, it just seemed SO out of the blue O_o And the r-rolling REALLY annoyed me... Hitomi sounds very good... and Reina! I really don't agree with making a new girl the center, but OMG she is amazing! I can see that Tsunku is trying to push the new girls in front before MM splits, so I guess it's tolerable. Reina does a really good job too *_* I hated her before cuz I thought she was ugly, but her talent more than makes up for it. She's instantly become a favorite of mine lol... but Sayumi is still cuter XD They'll put her thru singing boot camp and hopefully she will at least be as good as Rika and Asami O_O;;; *choke*

Hmm well I have access to every Hello! Morning there ever was O.O but I've only bothered to watch a few, as entertaining as it is XD I should watch more XD Ou... and the classics... Ayaka's English school =D *hearts* But umm... Sexy Onna Jyuku... don't watch that, it sucks X_x

OMG... so who here hates Iku ZYX! Fly High ? X_x Why did they have to take Mari out of Mini Moni for THIS? *dies* These new groups scare me. And just the fact that the ROMANS group is based on Sexy Onna Jyuku gives me doubts. Waahhh I want Momusu to split NOW! 15nin momusu clearly is not working, I personally can't wait for the Sakura and Otome groups to debut T_T *crycry*

I approved of Mari leaving mini moni, but WHY put her in a group with 10 year olds, and then not make her the visible leader? She looks like all the other girls in the cover! Grrrrrrrr.

I was gonna make minimoni plaid with looooots of tshirt transfers o.o;

Ryukku X
07-23-2003, 10:45 PM
Quick post...Lol.

Sexy Onna Jyuku isn't that bad....Goto's questions are cute. Lol. And sometimes, just the show itself is funny to watch. Oh, and it's Ayaka's Suprise English lesson. ^.^ It's the thing after most every Bishoujo Kyouiku II. Lol. ^.^

Phavorianne
07-24-2003, 04:04 AM
uwaaa, it is bad! It's so dorky and low budget! XDDDDD *hearts devil maki tho* But that doesn't make up for it!! X3

I always feel sorry for the girls when watching Ayaka's English School... they're so embarrassingly bad ROFL Hrm... I think they need to teach Tsunku some Engrish, too ;P

tabifu - Morning Musume/H!P are getting very popular so I think a lot more people will recognize you. There are a lot of people planning groups for next year. So give it a try. And it's not always about whether someone recognizes you or not. If you like the person and enjoy cosplaying in the costume go for it!!

Phavorianne - We should try to get a large group together just for fun :D We could be crazy and film silly "backstage" stuff *lol* I'll get pics of my guitar soon ^_^

...I wonder if anyone beats Baby Snow Leopard's affinity in Ayacosplayness >=D she gets stuck doing an aya even when she doesn't want to..... X3

Doesn't want to cosplay Aya??!! Except for the much talked about Ne~e? costume most of hers are super cute...or is that the problem? *laugh*

BabySnowLeopard - I'm not incredibly impressed with Shabondama. Sounds like they're all shouting. But they do look pretty in the video. I'm not thrilled by the new subgroups either. I haven't listened to them, but their clothing is rather >.< Don't know if I'll be happy or not with the split :/

Errr... yeah actually LOL I just realized all three costumes are Aya costumes *rofl* but only two are Ayaya =3

*lol* That was just a wild guess of mine! Will you have these done before the end of the year? ^^

Waynekaa - I hear Yuko, Kaori, and Kei are pretty good with English because of business matters

After all that babble here's my costume update:

Cut out the fabric for Aya's costume. Soon will be putting it together ^_^

waynekaa
07-24-2003, 02:08 PM
Well if Span doesn't like Aya, there's always other girls like Kie/Kei/Kie/Kei/Kie/Kei. :D

Yeah! There's only a few Bishoujo Kyouiku with Yuko, but everytime Ayaka tries to teach her something, Yuko's like >.> I already know that one. Hitomi and Nono have got some of the best "lessons" tho. :D

Yumi: Can't wait to see how your Aya comes out! And pictures of your Sports Car Mika.

Himemiya: T-shirt transfers would work and if it's what your familiar with it might be the fastest way for you to do it.

Ah, one of the best things about H!P cosplay has got to be the crazy fun you can have goofing off and taking ridiculous pix ^o^!! Whee~ there are so many H!P costumes I wanna make now!

I really liked the way the new shuffle groups turned out! When I first saw them and heard the samples, I didn't like them at all. But now that I've seen more, I really like it! The costumes are kinda boring, but at least they're not really bad. And two of the three songs are really cute!! I can't wait till I can get my hands on some full length PVs *_*

Yay! Yet more H!P cosplayers! Hey, I think I saw you at AI once in Momusu cosplay ^o^!

I hope so~
I also wanna cos them but i dont' want to hear everyone saying "which anime is it from?" 0_o

I was thinking Mari was taken out of Mini Moni is wrong, very wrong. I think she is the spirit of Mini Moni dont' u guys think?

I personally think the As for one day costume is very nice too! I would wanna do that someday!

*crys* doing my own plaid can take long.....let me see if I have time~ Woudl want to make the mini moni outfit for halloween though~~

Maki

Cyber Wolf
07-25-2003, 10:59 AM
Yes, Mari was the spirit of Mini Moni *sigh* Plus she was the only one who had a hair color other than black in that group so know it's a little boring to watch them -.-;

Anyone interested in doing RR21 or Otakon next year? ^.^ Just check the thread in my sig if you are. ^__^

I don't really like 7 Air or Water 11, but I luv Salt 5. Plus those moves are so easy to learn hehe ^^ I still haven't got the ending part of RR21 down as yet >_>;

petitemusu
07-25-2003, 11:59 AM
Paff - My list of H!P costumes gets longer each time I surf the net :D It's not fair!!!!! *lol* Goofiness reigns at AM!!

gcmoffmoorex - You're so cute in the RR21 costume. I always liked that one, but I can understand it being too hot *_*

Maki - When Crystal and I dressed in our Tanpopo costume at AX2k2 people asked us "What anime are you from?" and we would say "We're Morning Musume! Tanpopo Desu!" Their reply was "I've never heard of that anime..." *lol* So we spent that morning just going around saying randomly "Morning Musume! Tanpopo desu!" Spreading the joy ^_^ But in our Mini Moni costumes almost everyone recognized us. It was cool.

As For One Day has some beautiful costumes. Very tempting :D

I was very disappointed when Mari was taken out of MiniMoni. She "created" them and rather held them together I think. I was worried the music would change drastically, but I have two singles and it still sounds very much the same. But nothing can replace Jankenpyon or Hinamatsuri *^^*

Cyber Wolf - I wish I could join, but I'll most likely never be able to travel to Otakon. Take lots of pics!

The order of my fave Shuffle Groups 2k3 songs are:
7Air
Salt5
11Water

I guess that's why I'm excited about making the 7Air costumes ^_^ I haven't seen the PVs yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

Himemiya
07-25-2003, 12:16 PM
petitemusu! Did you use a pattern for your Sexy8 costume, or did you just wing it? o.O I'm thinking of making Ayaka's, or maybe Maris... AAHHHH I forgot I'm going to be blonde! >.< How on earth would a blonde Ayaka in a black dress look? O.o

Do you have Bittorrent? The english Momusu community is really in on Bittorrents lately, so everything's coming out BT ^^;

BabySnowLeopard
07-25-2003, 06:09 PM
Wheeee big groups of H!P fun! Sounds good!! X3

Well two of my costumes are for Ani-Magic O.O the other one, likely to be for next year _o_

I really cannot approve of taking Mari out of the group SHE created =_= that group was her baby. I can see why they did it though. The other girls grew up... and all of a sudden Mari was the odd one out, so instead of swapping the other members out, they took Mari out and changed the Mini Moni image X_x at least, that's my theory. Booooooo! But especially, to take Mari out, and put her in ZYX?? X_X It doesn't do her justice. (This coming from a non-Mari fan too!!) The new song makes me cringe O_<

Oh! lol gcmoffmoorex... dunno what to call you ^_^;; we saw you at AI once in your Souda costume, with a friend dressed as Mari XD lol. We met the Mari at AX too =D I really loved her pink and blue version of Mari (in my opinion, much better colors than the regular Mini Moni colors ^^; it was cute)

omg you haven't seen the shuffle videos =O it's a crime! XD You must! asap!! lol I like them a lot! I didn't care for the songs much when I heard the samples... but the videos make it all better!! 7 Air I think is the best song... but Salt 5 is my favorite video. The 7 Air video was slightly disappointing... I really think the group was miscast X_x But yes, the outfits are indeed cute... except that Risa's new look (carried to Shabondama *dies*) disturbs me.

Ahhh I really want to make one of Aya's concert outfits... I can't find any pictures of it online tho T_T maybe I'll just have to scan it =P

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
07-25-2003, 10:04 PM
I think they should do another group with Mari dressing up as Japan Street fashion (actually kinda like mini moni. I mean the OLD one. I bet their image changed after Mari's gone~~)

I think a lot of the young japanese teen girls liked mini moni was because of Mari too~ I think her graduation from the group might bring the # of fans down.

Maki

Himemiya - I used a slip dress pattern for the main dress and added the sleeve ruffles and bottom ruffle on my own. Basically I cut out the lace and material using the same pattern and sewed it all together. But one thing to remember - when sewing the "skirt" section of the dress don't sew the lace and material as one piece. Make the side seams seperate therefore the hem will lay nicer. I hope that makes sense ^_^;;

I've been trying to figure out BT. If you know how it works can you send me a PM explaining it? I'm sooooo confused *_*

BSL - I so wanna see the videos, but my dial-up won't let me download too large of files (which videos usually are). I have to wait to use my sister's comp *sad*

Ooooo Aya cosplay! Her concert costumes can be soooo cute. But it is hard to find them online depending which one you have your eye on.

Yeah! Can't wait to see your new ones at AM!

Hmmm...so far MiniMoni seems to be holding their popularity. I'm sort of surprised by that considering it seems all of Japan was up in arms over her leaving. And they seem to be releasing singles on a regular basis so all seems good. I thought she left because they wanted her to be more "adult", but then they stick her in ZYX 0_o Very confusing.

Street Fashion would be so cool for a group! My friend and I were talking about a FRUITs group with the MM girls just the other month. It would be wild!

Oh heard that they moved Mari 'cause they wanted to to be the leader of the group they moved her in...(I'm azzuming ZYX since you said that ^-^; *is a bit slow*) also they said she was short enough to be in the group T_T that's awfully rude of them.

Cyber Wolf
07-26-2003, 05:21 PM
If you mean short enough to be in Mini Moni, it's just that they have a height rule for that group is all.

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
07-26-2003, 05:22 PM
actually concerning Mari's height, she might be a good choice to be in ZYX because her height is not changing, however, I think the feeling she give is somewhat more mature then other MM members, in which I think those members like Sayumi and Risa.

I personally think Ai T.'s joinning Mini Moni is kinda mistake...I personally always think that she is featured as a mature person in most of MM's songs. I did not understand why they put her in mini moni instead of Risa. Risa might be a little taller, but Ai T. also violates the rule of 150cm so why not Risa.

*but I must admit that I like Ai T.'s smiling face more then when she is acting mature though.

Talking about street fashion, don't you think that Mini Moni's outfit style had changed a lot? Especially Ai T.'s joinning, they have kinda changed from originally street fashion to...somewhat more like the normal Morning Musume style... I was kinda disappointed at that....

Maki

Cyber Wolf
07-26-2003, 05:45 PM
Yeah, I saw a few pics of new Mini Moni...not as good as before ^^;;

I agree, they should have put Risa in. Ai Takahashi is waaaaay to mature for that group.

Himemiya

I just heard the news on the MM-bbs... it had some japanese sites I can't read anything from backing it up apparently... it was announced at a concert that NACCHI IS LEAVING in january 2004!!! NOOOOO!!! ;_____; She's going to go solo, tsunku announced on a screen at the concert.... NOOOO!!!

Himemiya - Ya, I heard that too! Apparently it's on Yahoo Japan News and several other places. The Love Machine curse continues! I'm not a big fan of Natsumi, but the question does remain is how will Momusu's popularity be affected by this?

ToshiyaMizukori - Well, I always thought of Mari as the Leader of Mini Moni. Ya, ZYX is the new group she was put in charge of. The rest of the group is about 5 girls ages 9-12 I think. That's probably what they meant as saying she was short enough for the group. One of the girls is even taller than she is! Guess they thought if they put another member in it would look too much like a teacher and her students *_*

Maki & Cyber Wolf - I was waaaaay disappointed when Ai T. was added. She's too tall, too mature, and just not my fave :( So I thought that MiniMoni's image would be more mature, but why kick Mari out then??? But they seem to be keeping with the "kiddie" stuff which makes Ai T. a weird choice. And Risa is actually under 5 feet. She's like 149 cm I think. I was hoping she would join ^^

The fashion did seem to change. Those "Jetson" inspired costumes sort of having me going >.< I really miss their orange plaid!


Okay, question time! What dance do you find the hardest and why?

I'm going to have to say Chokotto Love Video Version. The moves aren't that bad, but remembering which one comes where always confuses me 0_0 And they change the moves after only 4 beats. I'm working on it though! I read in an article that NoNo was a big fan of PucchiMoni and memorized the Chokotto Love dance. That's cool.

Cyber Wolf
07-27-2003, 01:49 PM
Oh God, "The Peace" moves. >< That foot work has me a little baffled oO; Other than that, the rest of the moves I've seen are pretty simple, you just have to watch the vid a lot. ^.^;

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
07-27-2003, 05:08 PM
oh no!
actually you can kinda FEEL which member is going to leave. They usually debut a couple solo albums as test stones before they actually leave the group
*sigh*
I agree, Nacchi was one of the most popular member in MM currently *sigh* (I remember I saw a list of most liked female idol in a japan magazine poll and Nacchi was scoring 3rd I think? And Mari was within ten)

I haven't seen any of the Mini Moni's video except the jyankenpyon which I saw at one of their concert vcds

Actually, Mari also created ZYX. She graduated 'cause of a lot of reasons. Lol. And actually, Takahashi Ai doesn't have black hair anymore. She dyed it. Lol.

Concerning Takahashi's joining of Minimoni....there is no height for Minimoni, anymore. They didn't put Risa in because Risa can't sing. Here's the deal. Minimoni = Good singers, Tanpopo = Sucky singers. They stuck the worst singer of Melon Kinenbi (Shibata), kept Ishikawa in there (::Shudder::), and stuck Konno and Risa in. They placed Takahashi in Minimoni because she COULD sing. (Yaguchi, Mika, Tsuji, and Kago all could sing, and now with Yaguchi gone and Takahashi taking her place, they still can all sing. Well.) I'm happy with what they did....so....yeah.

Concerining Nacchi's solo debut....it's gay. So many graduations, plus they make a big deal about Ichii's, Nakazawa's, Goto's, and Nacchi's, but no one seems to give a shit about Yasuda's. Lol. And Nacchi's scheduled to graduate Spring of 2004....

Hardest Dance? So far...for me...Scramble. Goto's Scramble. So many moves, but a great dance. I've leanred every dance since Happy Summer Wedding (Don't care about anything before that..) and that's the most difficult. That and Tanpopo's Be Happy Koi no Yajirobee....the footwork in that...lol. Minimoni dances are the easiest. Lol. But yeah. Scramble's hard.

Yeah. Been gone for a while.....sorry. ^.^;; Had to post.

Maki - Yasuda = Kei :)

Obviously Tsunku is "re-doing" the image of Momusu/H!P. Why else make all the decisions and changes he's been doing? And so far people don't seem to mind. I'm just waiting for everything to settle down before I make a decision. As for Tanpopo and PucchiMoni I heard they didn't perform during the summer Hello!Project which has me believe they are no longer together. I don't mind because I really disliked the changes made to them >.<

This is interesting that everyone has a different dance they think is difficult >_> I haven't seen Scramble so now I'm curious. I see a lot more concert versions than videos and I know some of it is changed around for the stage. That's the funny problem I had with Love Machine and As For One Day. I've seen the videos for those and there are a lot of facial shots which interrupt the dancing. Once I saw Love Machine done in concert I was like "That's what they are doing!!" So now I just have to see AFOD ^_^

MiniMoni dances are very fun, but very athletic!

I have to laugh that 2 people have said they think Tsunku is fine ^_^ It's not against either of you just by the fact that most people I know think he's scary looking. I was surprised when I found out how young he was. I thought he would be a lot older. Usually I see him with sunglasses on too.

The Honey Pie costumes are cute although I don't like the socks or shoes. I hope you guys get lots of pics when you're done with them ^_^

ACtually, Tsunku doesn't really do much with the switching of groups...he has say in it...but it's mostly the other people that...aren't...mentioned in news...o.o; Lol.

The Uwaki na Honey Pie lyrics are just adorable...."Amai amai kisu o shite"...Ah~ Lol. The dance is cute...but on Hello Morning...when they performed it, Konno was a little late with that leg thing...or she was too fast...or somthing...but it didn't look good.

Ugh. Tsunku...lol. He's...eh. OMG, have you guys seen him when he was in SharonQ? Ugh...Pink booty shorts and a pink cropped shirt...::Shudder::....I don't think Tsunku's that cute. Lol. He's got a good singing voice, though.

actually, I didn't find Tsunku scary, but again I must admit that all my friends look at me as if a living Alien on earth. I mean, almost all my interested are considered as "weird". I personally think of him as.....gackt type. Of coz he is not as good looking as Gackt, but his makeup and the feeling he gives (some people might consider that as "scary") is similar. don't u think?

Trunksu = so much better than Tsunku :D

gosh hardest dance... iunno, HP dances aren't all that hard in general XD you just gotta find the right videos that show everything! :D I mean... when you have that many girls, picked more for personality than talent... well then you can't have them do hard dances ^^;; hehe but hardest... lemme see... iunno but I had some coordination problems trying to do Koibito wa Kokoro no Ouendan (Country Musume ni Ishikawa), and sing too O_o but maybe that's just cuz I'm untalented XD hee mmm and a little bit of Okashi Tsukutte Okkasui (Mini Moni). lol and ya... I hear you on Chokotto Love being hard to memorize, it's so random! O_O

Heh I'm surprised Nacchi didn't leave earlier ^^; I mean it was real obvious from some of her past interviews that she had always intended on being a soloist... O_o I hope she's more successful than Maki =P

I get mine from mIRC....but I haven't gone there in a loooong time, and I got my BT from dokidokilovesite.com, then some others with way-crazy urls. Lol. I haven't DLed anything in a while though...

With the dances, I download like...all the live performances I can find (Utaban, Heyx3, Music Station, Musix (when it was still running..), FUN, Minna no Uta, Kouhaku (whichever dance was performed), etc...) and I learn the dances from those...the PVs are way-to-hard to learn the dances from. I mean, look at Fujimoto's Boogie Train '03 PV...you hardly see ANY of her LP dance, besides the "Boogie Woogie Chu chu", which is the easier part of the dance....and when Tsunku's doing that talking part in the song, and you have to do that limbo thing then move your arms in a circle and all that stuff, you only see that in the Live performance....so PVs can't show you anything...

Koibito wa Kokoro no Ouendan...that was the cutest song....I'm glad Ishikawa's not part of Country Musume anymore....though...I'm getting sick of Fujimoto all together. Lol. I see her too much in the H!P..

Yeah, Yuuko's still releasing singles as an H!P member...as far as I know.....the only thing is she doesn't host Hello Morning anymore...but she still goes Haropuro news and is in Basu ga kuru made...or...whatever it can be called....lol.

Ishikawa.....can't.....sing....though. Lol. As for one day Live performances...EVEN FROM THE CD. She's sometimes funny on Hello Morning...but...I dunno. Tsunku picked her 'cause she was pretty...he didn't pick the other members 'cause they were pretty, but they could sing well. I mean, not the best, but well for their age....take a look at Kago's audition...wow. Lol. And even the 6thgen girls can sing. I mean, look at their competition...they won 'cause they could sing....and the ones that can't (yes, 5th gen...there WERE others that were better than Konno...and Niigaki...), Tsunku claimed that he made Morning Musume as a "singing camp" for girls and help them acheive their dreams into becoming an idol....or...something.

(btw I saw the New Years concert with them performing this) I need to get back to learning that. Almost had it done then had other things interrupt *bleh* Hmmmmm...I'm not learning anything new right now maybe it's time to go back to that one :D

I'm tired of Miki already too. I didn't like her when she was first introduced and adding her to Momusu hasn't helped. I don't know what makes me go *_* when she performs, but that's what happens.

07-31-2003, 04:12 PM
I used to love Mikitty. When she was new, I was like "OMG, her voice is good!", and I thought it was extra cool that she tried out for Momusu and didn't make it, then was introduced as a soloist. (Her audition was really good...though, I didn't get into Momusu until 4th gen joined.) I loved her Romantic Ukare Mode song, then Boyfriend hit. It was okay, not as good as RUM, but it was still pretty good. The dance and costumes for it sucked, though. Then Boogie Train '03 came, and Mikitty started to become my favorite soloist...then she goes and joined Momusu.....now it just...doesn't seem right.....having a soloist that you've loved from the beginning in a grou-only and not being solo anymore? She's a really REALLY good singer, and she doesn't belong in Momusu. Ha.

When did you guys get into Morning Musume? Like, around what single?

gcmoffmoorex
07-31-2003, 04:53 PM
i used to love mikitty too, especially boogie train. now she's just everywhere and its driving me nuts! and for the new country musume i dont care that mikitty and konkon are from hokkaidou.. they dont fit! hell KAORI is from hokkaidou!! but i think its stupid how tsunku keeps putting in momusu members because now that country musume has miuna i think they can be strong (miuna is sssoooo adorable!) i like the new song but they're strong enough to do it by themselves now >.>

for me getting into momusu was actually kinda funny. i knew about them since morning coffee was released (didnt like it) but i ONLY got into them after listening to rr21 like a year and a half ago ^^;;

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
07-31-2003, 07:18 PM
I am actually the same as gcmoffmoorex actually. I knew about them, never listen to their songs until rr21. Actually my friend was playing the MTV that's wat got me into them. B4 I actually did hear some MM songs and I thought to myself: too loud. LOL And now I love their loudiness....

Miki is cute alright, but yah, it doesn't seem right for her to become a MM.....but i can totally understand why she agreed when tsunku asked. She had been a soloist since her debut and she had tried for morning musume in the first place. So i guess maybe she love the MM style maybe? I can see her enjoying being a group with ayaya and in gomatou

I think I discovered them right before Love Machine but I didn't know too much about them at the time and my interest revived through Pucchi Moni's Chokotto Love. I definitely don't want to see ridiculously huge groups because there are only so many lines and really great singers in the group are bound to be left at one point or another. :(

Yay, old ANd new fans~!

As for me, the first song I ever heard from them was Manatsu no Kousen. I didn't really like.....at all. (Right now I <3 it~ Lol. Ahh, kono natsu wa~) I steared away from Momusu...wasn't into Japanese pop music that much at the time, anyway. I was really young, too...like 11 or 12...I started getting into wanting to know everything about them after seeing Happy Summer Wedding...I saw their single come out, and I thought it was a joke (There were a lot of people in the group, and the covor isn't the best thing in the world. The covor would have looked better if they were in their red dresses, IMO)...but yeah, then I saw the video online...and I really really liked the song, so I went to buy the single....and then I just got into them like that....After going to a few websites, I got into the whole Hello! Project. Lol.

You're so right that Country Musume (ni konno to fujimoto) can do much better WITHOUTH Konno and Fujimoto......I mean, what line does Konno have in the live performance of it? "Naita"....you can hardly hear her!! She does sing with Saitou (Miuna) (Saitou's her surname, right....ahhh...too many new members...x.o Hard to keep track)...but you don't hear her. She also screws up with the dance. *sigh* I dunno, Konno's never been a favorite of mine...to all those who love her, sorry. I mean, she's imporved since she's first joined...but she's gotten me sour when she first auditioned....made it...then stayed quite. Right now I don't like Michishige...(right? Ha ha..) She's so quiet. I mean, in Hello Morning...this one "scene" just goes trhough my head over and over when I think of Michishige....the who Su-I-Ka thing. "Sumimasen, ii kotoe kangaerimasen" or something....I mean, kudos for trying....you don't see Kamei (......right?!?!) trying.....but she sang so well with Iida. Ha ha~...What does Michishige have in Shabondama....."SHABOMDAMA!!!" Lol. Tanaka just takes the spotlight, even though she's not *that* good of a singer, she at least stays on key. Tanaka seems so comfortable.....

Wow....sorry for ranting. I could go on forever....lol.

OLD DREAM ALL THE WAY!!! I can't believe what happened to them.....wow......lol. Folder 5 is awesome...so is Akina solo. I wanna do Akina's Touch Me PV red outfit for cosplay as well....lol. It's like...expensive, though.....And her hair's impossible to get for me, 'cause I like my hair long. LOl. Wig-time.

I like folder 5! The first tiem I hear their names I was like what the hell is wrong with that group to take such a stupid name. And then I foudn out they are from a group of talented boys and girls called folders (5 girls formed folder 5) and i was like "hey! that's kool~" I started listening to their songs late, like after dream has changed their form. But I love folder 5's songs. It always give me a fantasy feeling just like anime songs.

LOL, yah, i have noticed too, I was like michishige only have one line and some yelling speech? and Eri only have one line while Reina sing most of the song?!!! And then i went to somewhere and downloaded their auditions and boy....I was really surprised with michishige's singing. I mean, a lot of ppl say Rika can't sing, I personally think she is okay (just not as good at times), but michishige (is her name sayumi? I forget).........I totally agree she can't sing ||| (she was singing Akai freesia and the clip is showing 3 of them singing seperately of the same part which can totally see the contrast of their singing skills.....)

LOL, yah! I was like, did Konno sing in shabondama?! how come I don't see her singing in live. She has no line (or did i missed it)? Poor konno.....though I don't like her, but she had improved (looks and everything) since her debut.....poor thing

Well konno is getting a lot of attention elsewhere (country musume, HPW), so maybe its a little fair that she gets few lines in Shabondama, because she gets so much else to do o.o?

I discovered it about a yr ago from a japanese friend!
it is so cool that they have 100s of Japanese songs!! I like it a lot, tjey don't only have the popular artists, but much more like SAYAKA's ever since!! i hope they get in shabondama soon!

I'm gone for a few days and more people join the conversation! Yeah for the love of Momusu!!!!!

Maki, you're so lucky to have a karaoke shop. I always have to buy the singles to get any -_- Although some of the instrumental versions are sort of >.< Like Boom Boom Boom by Kiiro 5. That has a really annoying high voice through almost the entire thing.

Himemiya - Why not use the outfits they wore for the one live performance where they have those cute "initials" for their names? The outfits are plainer, but I'm not sure what you're looking for.

I'm going to be starting my Gomatto costume soon ^_^ But it's not the typical one you see. I'm hoping to bring it to AM. Anyone else planning H!P costumes for AM???

OH MY GOSH!
I can't believe it. I just downloaded a RR21 video by 9 guys! I can't help laughing (not in a bad way). Gosh, all thei moves are exactly the same and even the non-dance stuff! LOL! My comp freezed so I didn't save the address, but I have the video. Gosh, I've heard about them b4 from some where but this is my first time seeing the video....LOL is their group name called "Lost Revolution" or sth?

OH MY GOD, REALLY?!?! Can you send it to me sometime via IM? XD

oh sure~ it's so funny~
i fact maybe I can put it on yahoo briefcase and then you guys can go download it~ It is wicked funny! Oh my god! they followed every move from the MV almost LOL, in a way you can't even think of~ and it was late at night that i lowered the volume that it took me a while that they are actually using the instrumental and was SINGING it~ oh my gosh~ Me and my sis were cracking!

petitemusu: Oh yah, i can still remember the joy of finding that shop. It was an accident that I found thta place actually, though i did learn it from my friend but i wouldn't have know if I didn't find her contacts back the day I was searching it on net! It is a muilticultural, they even have english, Russian, Chinese, Korean, even in Indian!

It is located around near a subway station (which is on the route to downtown.) Maybe you can check ur downtown area as you know downtown has many different ppl and you might find a shop that is targeting Japanese songs if u searched~~ ^^

Karaoke places are fun! I finally found one by where I work..and when we went there....they were *Sort of* updated in songs...but the most-recent one of Morning Musume they had was Koko ni iruzee...that's not really old. Lol.

I buy the singles, too, but only 'cause....actually, I dunno why....I always buy singles to stuff..I never buy albums...with the exception of No. 5.

Konno not singing.....I didn't realize...just not in the LP....well, in As for one day, Tsuji got nothing but "Tabun"....I guess they're going down the line. I mean, sure Konno has a lot of stuff, but so does Mikitty, and so do Kago and Tsuji (I mean, look at Tin Tin Town...)Konno's improved a lot, I agree to that. My new most-disliked member is Michishige....yeah, her audition did suck...and why the hell did they have that internet vote for the members? No one cared who the winnder was, and out of the 100 finalists, Michishige, Tanaka, and Kamei were NOT in there. Lol. What was the point?? And the one who DID win hardly even sang. Ha ha.

Shabondama is really fun to sing,. especially Yaguchi's part...getting that harsh voice..rolling the R's...lol. I did karaoke of it to the computer...no BG music, though...just singing it. Lol. I hate how my voice sounds on computer, though. Blaaahhhh..

petitemusu
08-05-2003, 02:22 PM
I really dislike comp mics *_* They don't give you the quality sound that you need. They always make my voice sound higher than it is

Actually Sayumi and Reina were in that internet vote. They were both in the top ten. Reina was the one with the checkered wall panel and large TV and Sayumi was the one in the red shirt in her room. Eri wasn't. I thought the vote was pretty dumb too. You couldn't hear them sing or anything. It's just a popularity thing >.<

I think the newest problem with the songs and who gets what lines is that they have so many members and each has to have a line. A song can be over really quick after dividing it like that.

I love getting the singles 'cuz I like having the instrumentals. It's fun to sing ^_^

The video costumes don't work because I'm a bigger girl, and the plain dresses wont look good on me. I'd rather not dress in "street clothes", because its a lot of work for something that isn't very recognizable... I'd like something "costumy" as in people would say "who are you supposed to be?" then I can tell them all about Momusu XD

ooh... been a while O.O

LOL... do you guys remember the 3rd gen audition? I was just remembering what Tsunku said about the girls... and I noticed that when he set down a picture and said, that's the best singer, it was not a picture of Maki XD So um... proof Momusu is not all about singing =P I think I remember reading somewhere that Tsunku listed the key qualities he's looking for in a potential members, and none of them had anything to do with talent. It was all about having a winning personality and wanting to be part of the group, working together with everyone else... or something O_o anyone remember exactly what they were? And didn't Tsunku say that Sayumi needed to work on her singing, but that she had "the whole package"? (I'm assuming this means she has the looks and personality to be a great member of the group and idol.) Asami was clearly chosen for her personality (Tsunku's fave of 5th gen XD). I love her, she is so smart and cute when she talks. And Rika... well I'd say she CAN sing. Not the greatest, but duh, they can all sing (except Sayumi, she's tone deaf XD). I thought she sounded wonderful in As For One Day... not wonderfully on-key, but wonderfully angelic... I really think they chose the perfect person for the part. Her voice is really unique, her personality is very charming... well and of course, she's pretty. She's improved a lot... I'd actually give Rika a lot of credit for how hard she works. She always gives a lot of energy... and this coming from someone who'd NEVER sung and danced before in her life (same with Kago I hear =P). For now it seems Tsunku is only giving Sayumi shouting lines, to give her time to work on her singing. I can't wait to hear the first Otome song O_O
Ok enough on that XD I really want to see the 6th gen photobook! (Anyone found the full scans yet? =O)

Hmm well I avoided Morning Musume in their early days =P I heard nothing but lame rumors about them. But I'm all about the 4th generation XD those songs were the best! The first Momusu song I heard was Koi no Dance Site... and I hated it (Maki annoyed me sooo much ^_^;;;; )... and I still do hate it XD haha then when Happy Summer Wedding came out, a friend sent it to me, and I thought, umm this is kinda silly ^^; so I ignored Momusu for a while, but then my friend sent me The Peace! And I LOVED it! X3 (And the 4th gen girls X3) So I started looking for more and found Renai =P and that pretty much sealed it. Well that and the fact that Aya Matsuura was associated with Momusu through Hello! Project ^_^;; I was already a Matsuura Aya fan XD (I think that in itself is a clue to how late I was getting into momusu XD)

ooo Dream... yeah I loved the old Dream! I never could get ahold of many of their PVs tho =( Anyone know where I can get them? And I'm curious what the new stuff is like... I haven't been paying any attention to it... O_O I just noticed the CD covers when they suddenly exploded to Momusu size O_o (Tho I'd always heard that Dream was supposed to be Avex's version of Momusu O_o didn't really make sense at the time...)

Uwaa the guys doing Renai XD I love that video!! It is so well done XD Complete with Mari Staredown!! And dude, those guys harmonizing in falsetto sound better than the real thing! lol

Hmmm... I wanna do more Ayaya concert costumes... o_o *goes to look for more*

Toshiya: do you mean Fuji as in Fujisankei??? Cause I get that XD and I saw some j-pop vids being played last Friday at night, somewhere between 9 and 10:30 I believe ^.^

Btw, I just saw the Sabondama PV, I can't believe so many of them got their hair dyed brown, especially Ai T.! I was like "Whoa, she looks so different!" And for once, the let Kago have a ponytail lol.

Himemiya - ZYX's costumes can be cool (if they were on older girls and not those little ones). I was debating whether to suggest them to my group, but they'll probably kill me ^0^ Just don't go into the wrong side of town in them ^_~

is there a mini moni movie?i saw the file to download but i can't seem to download anything..


and does any one havethose specialsthat mini moni and morning musume do? they look like little tv segments 'dressed up as kappa and stuff

Himemiya
08-14-2003, 09:29 AM
Heeeeee the kappa thing is from Hello Morning, their weekly hour-long TV show YES there is a minimoni movie! But to get these things you need bittorrent! BT is easy once you get it downloaded BT is *not* reccommended for dial-up!

First, go to this site: http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/
go to DOWNLOAD at the top, then (assuming you have windows)click "we have a windows installer" (third link down).

Once you get it set up, go to a BT hoster (a great one is the public MM tracker (http://bunko.theppn.org/)). Click a file you want (will take you to another page, click the link there)... don't right click save as, just left click. A normal download box will come up and download very quickly - thats not your file. A torrent box will come up, and ask you to save the file somewhere -- if its a big file and is a zip file, just save it in my documents - it'll make its own folder

The torrent box will say "connecting to peers". The more people that have the torrent box up, the faster it'll go! This isn't like normal downloading, so it may take a looong time. Then it'll give you a time... my box says a little under three hours. It may take this long, it may not ^^; But usually it takes a lot less time, especially if you're only downloading a video!

KEEP THE BOX OPEN for as LONG as you can after you download!!!! This helps others get the file. If you have a slow connection or are looking at a site with lots of pictures (cosplay.com), you might want to close the box for a while. But to open it again (seed) just go back to the same site, click the link, save and stuff... and your download will already be finished

I reccommend BT if you have a cable connection or faster, and want to find rare stuff like weekly Hello! Morning (not usually subtitled), concerts, the Mini Moni Movie, or TV shows. For clips or older music videos, you may have better luck on Kazaa or WinMX ^^;; If you like it, concerts and the Minimoni movie can be bought at placese like cdjapan (http://cdjapan.co.jp) or yesasia (http://www.yesasia.com). Hello! Morning and other TV apperances aren't sold, though


LOOONG description! But BT is easier than IRC, so if you dont have teh l33t hax0r skillz, try BT! The more you use it, the easier it seems ^-^ Good luck!

There are 3 Love Machine costumes (actually more in the video, but there are 3 main ones then a bunch of really fast costume changes. They also have "closet" clothes they wear in the video) The most well known ones are black or white with some of them wearing coats with feather trim. Then they have white or pink ones. Then they have black pleather. They're sooooo hard to describe. I'll see what I can find. I might be able to make some iffy screengrabs, but I can't promise anything.

My group will be performing at a con in Denver, Called Mile Hi Con. It has been here 35 years, but only in the past few years has anime really been a part of it. (it is a collection con, it has Anime, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and others).

We are doing these really cute silver costumes. I just started mine about 3 hours ago. I am about 75% done (I think, cuz I am kinda guessing on the skirt, I do not have a good pic) But they are really cute! And we will be doing "love Machine", Cuz I am the founder and I love that song :)

It's so fun and the audience really seems to like it when you perform it (my friend and I performed at a Japanese Matsuri and it was fun!) Great choice! Who are you being??

I've heard of that con only recently. Seems to be getting a bigger name for itself.

In the beginning there costumes were very plain. Normal clothes most of the time. I think I like the slightly flashier costumes myself. Some of their stuff is a little too bizarre though.

Just heard Maki's song. I think the problem is that the music is so overpowering that's she's almost not there. Otherwise it sounds like a Maki song to me ^^

What about Aya's newest song? Last Night. It's sooooo beautiful. Very different for her I think. Although I haven't heard any of her other ballads.

aaaahhh I've been neglecting the forums O_O *pokes life back into the thread*

The silver Love Machine outfits are so cute ^.^ Good luck with your group!! Sounds like fun =D
I am planning to do Aya in her silver and black fuzzy outfit ^.^ gotta love sparkly velvet >=3

Aaaah I have not heard Ayaya's new song yet T_T I didn't think Maki's song was so bad, but I didn't like it either... well in general I don't like Maki's voice, or the way she sings... and the video is so incoherent X_X oh well =( But I really like the new Otome Gumi and Sakura Gumi pvs ^^; (except for the cheesy dancing... yah I already have it memorized, shush =P heheh)

Looks like no more H!P costumes (or any others for that matter) for me this year. =( *sad* I do have two Ayaya ones in the works (Gomattou and Momoiro Kataomoi), but I don't think I can finish them until next year. Oooouu yes I know the white winter outfit! I love that one, I want to cosplay that too X3 She sings 100kai no Kiss in that right? That's my favorite of her songs ^.^!!

You HAVE to hear Last Night!! Pretty pretty! I think it's very different for her, but it's great.

Sparkly velvet 0_o Aren't you going to be hot in that? But Love Machine is soooo much fun ^_^

I know all about not being able to get to finish some costumes *pout* I still have to finish the Gomatto ones and then for next year it's 7Air and Country :) And I want to do soooooooooo many more. The little winter one with the hat? I'm pretty sure that's 1000 Kisses. I want to make her concert outfit from H!P 2002 New Year (I think that's the right one. I always forget >.<) It's sort of wintery too.

We need more H!P Cosplayers!!!!!!!

Woah.....been a long time....

My list of costumes to make have changed....yeah....

For Anime Reactor, I wanna do a soloist, because i don't have a group to go along with me, ya know? But the only soloist with a new song is Gomaki...(like, I wanna perform a newer song and stuff)...I might do Ayaya's Good Bye Natsuo ('cause I don't like "The Last Night"..lol. Sorry) and I really don't like Nacchi as a soloist...or her new song....Lol. I might also do Sakura Gumi...but with three people...I really don't like Otome gumi...don't like the members except Ogawa, and in Sakura..I like all the members except Niigaki. The PV for Otome is cool, and the dance is easy...but the "Touch my heart, touch me please" sounds so...ugh. Lol. I'm glad Tsunku split it up, though...'cause I was watching a performance of that songs "Dekkai dekkai uchuu ni aru"..I know it's something like Dekai Uchu ni ai wo or something, but the line in the song is easier for me to remember. Lol. Umm...I was watching it, and it was 15nin-performance...and there were just...too many on stage...it looked like a chorus. TOO...MANY....I'm suprised they picked that song...it's so...ancient. (the Peace's c/w)....but yeah...glad they split them up into two groups...

Now what's with Ishikawa wanting to go soloist now? SHE CAN'T EVEN SING!!!! Iida's going soloist, too, but...she's a good soloist...but ISHIKAWA?!? OMG....I hope Tsunku doesn't let her release a ne solo single....I would so die of laughter and anger....(I really don't like Ishikawa...she's sorta mean...from what I see on Hello Morning...ugh.)

My.."long" and boring post...

Oh, yeah, and it is 100kai no kiss that that wintery outfit is worn...which Momoiro Kataomoi outfit do you wanna do? like, one from the PV? Or that Tessera/Shuiseido commercial? (The one in the commercial is so cute! ^.^)

BabySnowLeopard
09-15-2003, 07:52 PM
Eeee Yumi you're making me anxious to move back to school with its fast network so I can download the Aya PV's I've missed this summer X3 lol

Yes, sparkly velvet!! It's a good thing Aya doesn't get a coat, or yes, I'd probably be hot ^_^;;

*gasp* a PIG?? Noooo it is most definitely a bunny! ^-^ *pyon* *pyon*

Ahh I think Good-bye Natsuo would make a good solo cosplay ^_^ I'm working on the cowboyish PV Momo costume... the one she wears for her live performances. LOL the Tessera outfit is so obnoxious... cute but obnoxious... I've seen people cosplay it, and it just makes me want to do it even less, because it looks even worse than on Aya XD lol
Oh and while I'm on the subject, does anyone have any good pictures of that Momo outfit? I have a few, but I'd like to get as many as possible o_o;;

Awww I think Kaori would make a boring soloist O_o; she doesn't quite have enough to support a solo career... but I think she would appeal to a certain crowd (after all, my favorite j-pop idol is not a big star... a similar situation I think). LOL I totally loved Rika's solo song, it was so totally adorable ^_^ I've always wanted to hear more. I think Rika would make a decent soloist because she has the energy and personality to pull it off (not to mention the looks), but she would eventually fail. They would have to put her through very rigorous voice training if she actually wanted to do it, because her weak voice will not hold for an entire solo performance. I somehow doubt it will happen... they'll have Ai T go solo first =P But dude, I don't want ANY of them to go solo... do they realize that part of their charm is that they're a whole BUNCH of cute girls just doing random stuff?

Mean? O_o?? Rika has never struck me as mean person at all! She's gotten more uppity as of late... understandable, but not likeable. But mean? What specifically are you thinking of?

Lol... now you've made me think of why I don't like certain girls... but I think most of you guys would probably kill me if I said anything XD *creeps away* All in all, each girl adds a bit of character to the group... it just wouldn't be the same if they weren't ALL there ^.^

09-16-2003, 10:15 AM
The mean thing...On Hello Mornings...the way she's "funny" is sort of mean...like...it's hard to explain. Yoshizawa was sort of mean to Ishikawa, but it was funny...then Ishikawa was unoriginal and did the exact same thing, but about Yasuda...I thought that was mean because Yasuda wasn't even a part of what Yossi said, and Ishikawa and Yossi are always known for fighting. (Since they're the same age and all, and everyone has sterotyped them of being best friends, but like...they...aren't...I think Ishikawa might want to, but Yossi thinks she's too...opposite style...like...you know, too girly) But yeah, every time she *tries* to be funny, she ends up being sort of cruel...sometimes I feel sorry for her...but her personality just...i dunno, I don't like it...and mixed with her week, flat, sour voice...no.

Go ahead and share your feelings about the members!! I'd love to hear it!! I mean, look what I just did with Ishikawa....I could go on about how I dislike Tanaka, Fujimoto, Michishige, Konno, Nacchi, and Niigaki...lol...Wow, it seems like I hate half of Momusu...but I really don't. Tanaka + Fujimoto + Konno are disliked by me 'cause they're put everywhere (I like their personalities), Niigaki's singing just bothers me, but not her personality (she's so cute!!), Michishige's too quiet and she jsut *trys* to be funny (She's adorable in performances, though) and Nacchi...I dunno...I'm not fond of 22sai no watashi....I guess every little thing about every H!P member can bother someone....this is it for me, though. Lol. Kamei needs to sing more, too...

OH OH OH I was making that costume!! 'cept I stopped...I dunno why...I have the skirt done. Lol. I think I just ran out of cloth and can't find the right stuff. Lol. The shirt's too hard for me, too. Well, I was doing the Hello Morning version....every live performance has a different costume, and there are like..three versions of her cowboy-ish one...these screenshots aren't the best, but it's the best I got...maybe that's why I stopped? I hope I'm uploading the right one...I have a lot of "plans", but...never the time to finish (I always start, never finish)

O_< The new mini moni scares me... the group seems to have lost sight of its purpose O_O;; They look good but... it's just not the same T_T *misses the old Mini Moni*

lol it seems to me the other girls are the ones who are mean to Rika ^^;; especially Yossi O_O; That one ep of... Heyx3 I think it was... you could tell that Rika was very hurt, and said she always thought Hitomi was her friend ^_^;; lol and yeah, Rika does tend to parrot... which is a bit lame _o_
Nah, I'll just stick to who I like. It's much more pleasant. And Sayumi is sooooooooooo cute!

ooooh HaroMoni Ayaya ^-^ not as fluffy, but still cute =D You should finish it! And yeah, I meant her unaltered, standard one she wears for *most* of her Momo-promotion performances. Gosh that skirt is such a mess *_* hehe.

09-18-2003, 08:27 AM
How come everyone is so upset over the new mini moni cover ;_; Just because its change, doesn't make it bad...
Plus, it still might be a super-cute song, and even maybe its still a kids song. There were no announcements on Mini moni changing images, so this is totally out of nowhere!

They're all older, its time they got to sing about things other than numbers and kids games.

Ryukku X
09-19-2003, 04:10 PM
That's true. I think it's cool for Minimoni to go that style. It's a total change. I mean, HelloProject is pretty much based on a lot of change. Goto Maki is doing awesome with sales because all of her songs have their own unique feel to them. Same with Morning Musume (I mean, they went from Do it! Now, to Koko ni iruzee, to hyokkori Hyoutan Jima) And if you look at Otome + Sakura, they're like..opposite tuypes of songs. Minimoni has prett much been the same...compare all their songs and they all have the same feel to them. Hopefully Minimoni will appeal to kids and teenagers more now (*coughcough* sure..) I hope they have better lyrics than Kazoe Uta (Please...that song was just...pathetic-sing-to-2-year-olds) I mean, come on. "Jump in the bathtub, let's count! Hey, Jump in the bathtub, let's count!" PUH-LEASE. I mean, yeah it's meant for kids...but...ugh. I mean, even Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu Daisuki had better lyrics....not by far, but still...You know what I mean? God, sorry for the typos..this website's like...forgetting to tyupe in letters...Ihate when that happens....keys don't register to the website.

09-19-2003, 10:10 PM
Oh wow it's been awhile so it's my turn to catch up ^_^

Actually I thought since they added Ai T. MiniMoni's look has changed. I remember seeing the set of costumes (let's see if I can describe them) that were blue plaid and had those huge pink bows by their necks. Ai T was in short shorts and a crop top and even Nono had a crop top on. I was like 0_o but now I just accept it. I sort of think the new look is cute and considering they are older now it's only logical to grow up the groups look. I sort of look at it this way too - atleast they are not trying to imitate what Mari set up and pretend she's still around.

Ahhhhhhh...Ayaya's costumes = Kawaiiiiiiiiii!!!!!

And I finally listened to ZYX. That is one catchy song and except for a few places they do NOT sound like little kids.

I'm not really happy with Romansu, but have you seen their new promos? Those look a lot better than the slips ^^

Ryukku X
09-21-2003, 01:09 AM
I meant the style of music...it looks like it's gonna be more...hare-core. Lol. Not like...singing about how much you love icecream, or there is a banana peel, it might actually have comprehendable lyrics for others.Lol.

ZYX don't even LOOK like they're little kids./ They look 14-ish...but they're like...9, 10, 11....they actually sing well. Lol. I think one of them looks like Yaguchi when she was little..I forgot her name though. The little one with the high voice.

Promos? Slips? Huh? ::Confused:: Romans' song is good...but the red lipstick doesn't cut it for Sexy. But they all have good voices, if you take Ishikawa out. THOUGH, Ishikawa has a nice voice in Romans...for some reason it osunds strong...but then go back to Otomegumi and she's weak again....

KoF98Mai - Thank you for the info ^_^ It was mentioned before because Ayaya went there in one of her videos and, yes, Momusu went there just a few weeks ago, but I don't think anyone knew exactly where it was. Thank you!

Mari Moni - Welcome to the thread. We're all Momusu/Hello!Project crazy so enjoy and join in! Yeah! for MiniMoni cosplay!

RyukkuX - I don't know the ZYX girls by name or looks yet. Guess I better since I like the song ^_^ I think the one little girl looks like Risa (and this is not a bad thing in my book). The only Mari "baby" pics I've seen are from the video Furasato. Or are you thinking not that small? :schitzo:

The origianl promos (or Official Pictures as people like to call them) of Romans they wore those slips (pink and blue I think). I thought it looked a little trashy. Not the best style. New promos have been released of them in leather like outfits...much better. I'll post a pic when I can, but I'm downloading something and I can't upload at the same time or my comp will freak! *lol*

Woah...little behind here...

I know exactly what you're talking about with the Hello! Project store...and yeah, Petitemusu is right with Aya going there and stuff, and then Momusu going there....lol...okay...yeah...never been there, though...

I meant like...young...when she first joined Momusu...especially if you take a look at the first time Momusu went to Hawaii (1st and 2nd gen members only...) and look at Yaguchi's face, then compare it to the girl that wears white from ZYX. Lol. I think they look really similar....

I have baby pictures of Yaguchi...but they're...somewhere...lol. i'll try and find them. Lol.

SweetS are actually good. Lol. The PV is sooo cute. Lol. <3 <3

Umm...yeah...sorry this was quick. Ooooohhh, I love Hare toori ame nochi suki and Ai no Sono Touch my heart~! So fun to sing~! Lol. In Hare Toori Ame Nochi suki....Takahashi's part is *fun* because she's actually a good singer....maybe I'll record and post...I dunno, on other boards...we do that a lot...(karaoke..lol)

I love Sakura Gumi's song. Hmmm...I'll have to look and see who I normally sing...Ai Kago and Eri's lines. Yep ^^ That would be cool to hear you sing!

Himemiya - AWWWWWW...*hugs* I hope you get better fast. It would have been cool if you could get the chance to sing, but don't ruin your throat. Have fun wearing the costume and get lots of pics for us!!!

Aya - Love Machine is loads of fun. When we performed it we had a group of Japanese visitors off to the side making the L sign and "whoa whoa whoa" -ing with us *lol* Unfortunately I can't make it to AM *cry* Plans fell through :lost: I guess I'll have to meet and hang with you guys at another con. I told BSL it would have been fun to record crazy backstage H!P stuff, but we'll do that later ^^ Have fun and good luck!

nuriko001 - I made the Odoru11 costume for my friend Scuzzi so I have several pics. Just have to locate them. Give me a day or two. Or if you are looking for a specific girl tell me and I might have a site for you :)

Short one. Lol. Um, also keep in mind...I've never taken a singing class, never had a singing teacher...and I haven't been 'teaching myself' very long...so....yeah....

I have a message at the end, too...

Umm...yeah. Lol. I was listening to it, and my voice sounds sorta weak...sorry....

OKAY, back to discussing H!P...yeah, those Romans costumes are WAY better than on their CD and PV and stuff...at least in the PV...the "rappers" had pants on. How come with every new "sexy" group that has coconuts Musume in it, they make the Coconuts Musume member a rapper? ALWAYS? LOL.

Okay...yeah...Oh, the bored I was talking about is...umm...I can't find the link 'cause i'm on the wrong computer...but I'll find it. It's not *that* popular...only about 200 people are on it.

Thanks for all your comments~!!! :D Yay. Really, I appreciate it. I'm not Japanese...lol. Never even been to Japan. Lol. Wanna go, though~! Ha ha.

The breathing in more places thingy...I read somewhere that you're supposed to sing as if you were talking, taking breaths at the same time you would if you were speaking the lyric...though, I do tend to carry on to the next phrase without taking a breath (which I SHOULD) because I don't put all my air/breath into the last phrase, and it would hurt for me to breathe....lol. I ran into that trouble with the "*breath* Nee Hare *breath* Toori ame nochi *breathe* suki"...Momusu does it that way, and I had trouble sounding like that...if you were talking and saying "Nee, Hare toori ame nochi suki", you wouldn't take that many breaths, ya know? Lol. Thanks so much for your critisizms and everything. I'll improve on it. :D :D

Anyone else have Momusu Karaoke they want to record/post? Lol.

OOOOHHH, I was gonna do an Uwaki Performance, but some people ducked out. Lol. So no more. good luck~!

Can anyone tell what the two types of fabric for the Hare Ame Nochi Suki costumes are? I keep thinking different things...in some light, it looks almost like crepe but then in others it looks like brocade and then in others it looks a little like satin...very confuzzling x_x I'm thinking of doing the dark pink in some sort of lycra blend...not sure yet, still looking for the perfect color...have a while to do it, thank god (it's for the karaoke competition at fanime next year) but I just like to get stuff out of the way, since I have five costumes that I need to make- three of which will be H!P, as I'm obsessed with Mr. Moonlight and Koi wo Shimashita as well as Hare Ame Nochi Suki. And possibly Goodbye Natsuo too, if I get smaller. (As it is right now, short shorts are NOT my friend ^_~)

Aaah! I didn't do AWA karaoke ^^; I got there and saw a room for Karaoke, with no stage, and no room to dance. So, I went to a Yaoi panel my friends were hosting instead ^^;; Yeee!

Noooo ooone knew who i was, so I just bopped around. Its mostly street clothes anyway, so it didnt bother me ^^

Next... probably new minimoni single costume :D

... If no one else will, i'll record a karaoke! I'll do it tomorrow! :D

I've noticed the sakura gumi costumes look weird.... It looks to be a wrinkly pink fabric on top, and something different on bottom.

Anou... that wasn't very helpful, was it ^^;

Tris-chan - Well, Wayne already welcomed you to the thread >_> But I'll add that it's great to have another H!P lover on board! I can't wait to see your costumes! The outfits from Mr. Moonlight are so neat ^^

I have a huge wallpaper with the Sakura costumes and I looked really closely and even magnified it. I would say the dark pink is definitely some sort of knit since it's so formfitting. The paler pink actually has a design on it - Sakura Blossoms! I was amazed when I saw that. So in one way I would almost say a Jacquard. But I don't think you'll find exactly what they're wearing. And Jacquard can be quite heavy and that material seems rather light. Hmmmm...Hope this helped!

Himemiya - I really love that new MiniMoni! I was worried about it, but I love the dance, club feel to it ^^

Ryukku X - Ooooo...I'll see if I can get a recording done. I'm sort of nervous 'cuz of being sick, but I'll see what I can do ^_^

Oooooh my god. My new H!P cosproject = Mika in the "Crazy about you" Mini-moni video. Definitely. I LOVE her jacket!!!! It says mini-moni. sideways on the back! :D!

OMG fantastic! :bigtu: Mika looks really good. I'm looking forward to your cosplay ^^

Oh and about the karaoke room at AWA - I understand. At AX 2k2 there was no stage in the room or much room and the sound system >.< And the room was tiny. No acustics whatsoever...so it's okay you didn't sing. It's understandable with subpar situations ^_^

I was glad to see the space bunny too! There was an interview with Mini Moni and Aibon said she was worried that their new costumes wouldn't have "MiniMo-chan" on them. She was relieved to find out they were there ^_^ kawaii!!!!!

They look very grownup in those costumes, but I like the "new" look. There are no guarentees though that will stay the same ^_^

No problem Nikki! I'll tell them!
Eurobeat King and cosplay.com has some pretty nice shots of the Love Machine, Chokotto Love and Momoiro Kataomoi performances we did at Animagic, as well as your wonderful Sera Myu group! Make sure to get a good look!
I've updated the USA Musume (http://www.geocities.com/usamusume/) page with all our stuff from Animagic so you can see the front too ^_^.

I really like minimoni's song, but I doubt they'll stay this way. Looks like Tsunku's going for that "every single is a different style" that seems to be going well for Gomaki, Ayaya, and Momusu.

Horrible Horrible!
I've saw a clip yesterday and they where performing the song in front of 4-5 yrs old. The song was also subbed so I can see what it talks about, it is definitely not what those kids should be listening!! And the host of the show says that the kids like it but I can tell they ar NOT! They were only clapping because they ar supposed to! U know how kids were, if they like it, they yell and scream, but you can just see that most of the kids have such blank looks in them! |||| I actually wanna cry (haaha, the kids are the one that should be crying, but I feel like crying), my cute MiniMoni is gone >_<

10-18-2003, 03:51 AM
just to add...i actually think the song is nice but Tsunku, don't make mini moni sing this type of song!! Let ZYX or Aa! sing it!

>_< *sobs*

Ryukku X
10-19-2003, 11:48 AM
I don't think this "style" to minimoni is permenant...they're just making songs to be liked by other age groups...and the reason why it was infront of the kids...I'll never understand...but the lyrics aren't bad.....

Himemiya
10-19-2003, 10:15 PM
WAAAHHHH dude! My fake-diamond MINIMO belt buckle is gonna cost like.... 65 dollars. AUGH. >.< And my hat isn't quite right, but i'm gonna make up for it by having the Minimo-chan embroidered on it ... this place at the mall can do that, i think. We shall seeeee! x.x; I'm trying to decide if i want to use t-shirt transfers for the Minimo-chan on the leg and the Mini-moni on her shirt and jacket... O.o cause taking it to a t-shirt place would make it last longer, and then i could wear the jacket around town :D

10-23-2003, 02:23 PM
have u guys heard the aa! first kiss song yet? and the pv too
i like it, especially the violin part at the beginning of the song
style is kinda unexpected and they all sing good!

sadly to say....i think i like Aa! more then ZYX even though Mari is in it >_<

petitemusu
10-24-2003, 12:25 AM
Must catch up!

I haven't heard Aa's song yet. In one way I don't want to, but I always give every H!P group a chance ^^ I really like MiniMoni's new one and ZYX's so it might be hard to beat those in my mind, but we'll have to see...

Himemiya - That's really expensive. I'm not sure unless you intend to wear it a lot or have that extra cash around whether it's worth it *hm* There's no where else you can get a 2nd quote?

I don't think MiniMoni's new song should be sung in front of children either. As they grow up I think their audience is too and that's who should be seeing them perform. But this also could just be a fad. Apparently the R&B/"gangsta" look is in BIG time in Japan so as soon as that goes away another MiniMoni style will probably appear.

I mean has anyone else noticed all the Chains half of H!P has been wearing????

Ryukku X
10-24-2003, 01:41 AM
Aa!'s song is good....but it would've been better if it was sung by older members of H!P...not...those high pitched....voices....haha....

Go girl! Koi no victory is like...Dekkai uchuu ni aru ai wo whatever. I don't like it. It's too...anime-opening-esque......blech.

Actually, you know what it reminds me of? A Dance Dance Revolution song by smile.dk or Jenny Rom....if anyone wants me to upload it..I will...soon...lol. ^.^

Go girl ! koi no victory feels more like christmas ~ especially at the beginning. but that's a different style from shabondama and they're back to the original style !

HI everyone
I need some opinion on this.

What song do you think is the best to perform(introduce j-pop) to people (in the western society)?


thanks!

Edited: Solo performance or singable with only 1 person

Maki Yu.Ki.Ame
11-06-2003, 05:03 PM
of MM or???
if not MM, i think zone's songs are pretty good. Coz i know a lot of chinese they don't like how the Japanese singers have very high childish pitch.....so....(and I love zone very much)

petitemusu
11-06-2003, 06:00 PM
I'm very one sided with Jpop music. Basically all I know is Hello!Project. I know I should really look up a few others *sigh*

But Maki is right. A lot of times people do not like the very high pitched voices unless you can pull it off REALLY well. On the other end though lots of people love MiniMoni ^_^

What kind of audience are you performing for? That makes a big difference too.

Okay...now that this topic has had the cobwebs swept from it *lol*

My question:

Does anyone know where I can get individual pictures of the girls in those blue and pink outfits? I have a group pic when they are in a "car" and I've seen a solo pic of Asami so I'm sure there are others, but my search has failed. This is actually a very recent picture. If you need I can upload the large pic to show you what I'm talking about

Thank you!

I really like Go Girl! Koi no Victory.. It's gotten stuck in my head quite a few times since I first heard it. ^-^

Err okay yes, my first post to this thread. ^^; Mind if I do a really lame introduction? Okay then. XD

I've known of Morning Musume since summer 2000, when Koi no Dance Site and Happy Summer Wedding were their newer hits. I saw them do Renai Revolution 21 on Hey! Hey! Hey!'s Christmas show, and I still think I have it on tape somewhere. ^^; But I didn't really start seriously listening to them until 2002.. Sometime after USA Musume started performing actually, haha, and I went "Hey! I remember this group!" and downloaded some songs and videos when I got home. And now it wasn't until SUPER recently when I sparked a huge interest in Hello! Project as a whole.. I was at Japantown last month and saw Otomegumi and Sakuragumi's PVs on this little PV viewer the bookstore and CD store have there. o.o I loved Otomegumi's dance so very much and loved both songs. I picked up both the DVD and CD for Otome. Yeah okay, I don't have a Japanese DVD player yet, but I'll have one within six months I hope. ^_^;;; Anyway.. I've been sorta depressed lately so I heavily began looking up and downloading H!P stuff to keep myself genki, and it worked, and now I'm like.. a super fan. It's kinda scary.
My favorite out of all of H!P is Goto Maki.. I've liked her the best since when I started listening again in '02, which is sad because a few months later she graduated. x_x I love nearly all of her solo work. My favorite member currently in MoMusu is Yoshizawa Hitomi. :D I loved her first in Petit Moni though (I was listening to them because of Maki, of course). ^^; I also have a soft spot for Tsuji Nozomi.. She's so cute and tries so hard but she still gets lots behind Kago Ai's popularity. ;_; Not that I have anything against Aibon.. she is very cute indeed. ^^
So overview... Closet fan for a long time.. XD Goto Maki is my idol, I hearts Yoshizawa Hitomi, and I'm rooting for Tsuji Nozomi. ;-; I love Pucchi Moni, I've loved a bunch of the shuffle groups, songs by Nakazawa Yuko are pretty, Mini Moni scares me but I do like some of their songs (Strawberry Pie comes to mind), aaaaaand yeah.

NOW then. XD

As a cosplayer I can't get into anything new without wanting to cosplay from it, so there's already a bunch I want to do. I mostly wanna do a lot of Goto Maki outfits, obviously.. ^^; and I'm thinking of doing Nozomi's Otomegumi outfit.. Not the one from the video, but the one she wears on the CD case. o.o

Wheeeee~

i think nono is gaining popularity now coz the twins are changing their image and I think Nono is very pretty in more teenage outfits~ (shhhhh~ dont' tell anyone......i switched from liking Aibon the best to Nono the best out of the twins....)

Michi
11-07-2003, 12:55 PM
Nozomi's become very pretty and mature, yes.. While Aibon still has her cute/young look.. (At least comparing the Otome and Sakura videos)

I didn't even realize it was Nono at first when I saw the Otomegumi single cover. O_O

11-07-2003, 02:00 PM
Welcome Michi to the topic! It is very hard to stay depressed listening to H!P ^^

I really think Nono has grown up very much and looks really good. Several of the girls have changed their looks and mostly for the better I think :) Makoto looks really good with that hair colour (in my opinion).

Okay....here's the pic I'm talking about ^^ This and a solo one of Asami are the only two I've seen (actually last night I came across one of Sayumi, but it didn't show much more than what you see in this one) I hope someone can help me!

I agree! I think Makoto has become very beautiful. Not that she wasn't pretty when she first appeared with her black hair.. like Mr. Moonlight, heh. She looks brighter and more mature now.
Nono has lighter hair now too. :o
