The nose of Aimi was from Tomomi Itano with the hair picked from Yuko Oshima. The facial features were completed with the selection of the fake singer’s mouth, face and eyebrows. The eyebrows of Aimi were picked from Mayu Watanbe. Minami Takahashi’s face was picked for Aimi by the engineers with Aimi’s mouth taken from Mariko Shinoda.
